Got a card and a Willow tree figurine last night.....and last week, instead of roses that will just die, he let me go to the cake store and buy all the rose cutters and veiners that I wanted to do gumpaste roses!!!
He also got a card for our daughter and we just finished all making heart cookies and decorating them and heart-shaped pizzas for lunch!
We're snowed in, so my DH hasn't been able to get out (he's a last-minute kind of guy ), but he did get me my heat back! My furnace went out at midnight last night and by 4:30 am it was freezing in my house! He's been working on it all morning and it finally got it working, so I'll take heat over flowers anyday!
For the 10 years we've been together and the 5 we've been married I think I've oly gotten something maybe twice. He usually doesn't get me anything, it's not that he doesn't want to, it's mostly a money issue. He is self employed and doesn't have regular pay days so he usually gets paid after the fact. The same thing with my birthday. But when I got up this morning there was a diamond pendant on the counter. I had showed it to him a couple of months back, little did I know he had been paying on it. He bought me a new white gold and diamond wedding set for christmas and this matches perfectly. He also got me a tear jerking mushy card, which he never does. He always gets those funny or cute Valentine's cards. I was very suprised and cried like a baby.

Hey Zoomitoons! We are birthday buddies! I know very few people who share our birthday! Happy Birthday!
So, since it is my birthday today, my wonderful hubby took me away for the weekend this last weekend. I took the day off Friday and we went to a big mall just south of us and stayed at a hotel nearby and had a really nice dinner Saturday night. He also surprised me with an arrangement of beautiful hot pink gerbera daisies (my fave!) sent to the hotel! We have a friend that is the manager of a florist and she got a hold of a place near the hotel and ordered them! They are so sneaky!
So I didn't get anything today but I told him not to get me anything since we did all that! I got him a card, made some "Love Coupons" for back rubs without complaints on my computer, and a box of his fave cigars.
All and all, an excellent Valentine's/Birthday!
Nothing but a kiss and a "Happy Valentine's Day, Honey!' today.... but he is taking me out of town over the weekend. YaHoo!! Two days with no kids, no cooking and no cleaning. Then again it will all still be here when we get back! lol
I bought him a new snowblower. lol

2 dozen roses mixed with daisies and babies breath, with a card. He gave them to me last night as I teach cake class tonight and he's usually in bed by the time I get home. Lets switch this around. What did everyone get their DH? I'm leaving him a lazer leveler with a card for him today before I go to class.
My DH... Surprised me with some purply-pink not gerbera daisy's but about that size on the blooms last night... Of course, this is the first time since we were dating that he got me something, so I said "what'd you do that you shouldn't have that you decided to get me flowers????"
Then, today I treated myself to a trip to our local chocolatier... They kindly packaged up four Black Forest truffles for me... MMMMmmmmmmmm...
