Interesting V-day

Happy belated V-day, oh blog friends of mine! I hope everyone's days were splendid. Does anyone else not get into V-day? Seriously, Darin's such a romantic hunk every other day of the year that V-day seems kinda lame for us. Numerous non-V-day times he's stopped by work and dropped of flowers.. or I'll walk into our house to be surprised with a little gift on the table. The man is too good for words, seriously.

We had wanted to go out to eat last night to celebrate. So I do my normal ritual to give D a call when I was leaving practice at 6:00. The poor guy was in bed with a serious stomach ache... he felt horrible and felt even more horrible that he couldn't take me out. So I got home and nursed my poor temperature inflicted, tummy-ached, can't be farther than 5 feet from the toilet, hubby. I made him some soup & tea, rented a movie and just vegged with him. It truly was a very nice night... just wished he felt better!!

He did manage to go shopping for me yesterday. He was going to get me a card but said that they were too tarded. So he gave me a softball, hangers and a lighter. =) Strange? you may ask?? I thought so too until he explained their meaning. He told me the softball represented how fun I was.. that he totally enjoyed that we play softball together and stay active. The hangers represented that I have a 10-shirt free pass in my closet without him nagging me to get rid of stuff. (My deal with him is that if I get a new shirt or pants, a shirt or pair of pants that I no longer wear has to exit my bustin'-at-the-seams closet) And the lighter represented that I loved him even though he tends to do stupid things occasionally. A week ago I was looking for our lighter to light a candle. Asked him where it was cuz he had it last at the grill couples days prior. Oops.. he had left it out and it had rained and snowed on it.. and of course the lighter was still out at the grill. So his presents were totally sweet and thoughtful and so Darin. =) And he's renewing my CK subscription cuz it ran out.. =) The man is AMAZING!! I am the luckiest woman alive...

Love ya, Darin Jay!!

Oh My Gosh. Could your husband BE any sweeter? I don't think it is possible! I love all the presents and that each one had a significant meaning! I think Darrin should give Hugh some Sweetness pointers! hahaha. Glad you had a good night even though your man was sick, hope he is feelin better!

jes said...

what is CK? and I like that you guys stayed in and enjoyed eachother vs the spending money on diner option. More sentimental and more loving. I never get mad that kahlua and I dont celebrate valentine's day. She just feels that it is too commercial, I understand. So, valentines day was very blah on planet jessica.
(kahlua is my dog for those of you who dont know me)

Jill said...

um, can your husband call my husband to give him help??

yeah, i'm really not kidding about it that!

too bad he was sick, Gary & my son were sick too, but it sounds like you had a romantic evening anyways! those were some really sweet gifts :)

i am so with you...
we have date nights so often.. or just stay in and cozy.. that heart day is not that big of deal. That is actually the one day,, that I DON"T wanna go out... or get flowers(all though he did).
Andrew always surprises me too.. random, which is by far better!
How cute of Darin to get those gifts.. he actually HAD to think..
Unless there was no meaning behind it.. and then he would have seemed like a typical male.. last minute.. random shopping!
i would say you got a keeper!
poor guy, that he was sick.. I bet that really made him feel worse.
glad you could nurse on him...
THAT is romantic!!! ha ha ha!
