Here while back I started thinking about Valentine’s Day and wondering what to get hubby. When I asked him what he wanted, his response was a quart of Thank You Cherry Much Ice Cream and the ability to eat the whole thing and not feel guilty. I laughed so hard, but he was serious.
Then I got to thinking about it and decided that he needed a receiver hitch in his truck. I have one in mine, but my dad’s got stolen when his truck was in the shop getting worked on, so dad had to borrow mine. It made me realize that we needed another one at least so I decided to get him one like the picture above. This way he had 3 different sizes, versus mine 1 size. My one will haul our flat bed trailer but if it is bigger or smaller than what was on my truck (and don’t ask me what size I have) we’d have been screwed, so I decided to get him the 3.
I was afraid I wouldn’t pick the right thing out though, so I loaded him up in the truck, drove a round about way to get there trying to throw him off, and took him to Harbor Freight which is where I decided to buy the receiver hitch from. When we pulled into the parking lot, he laughed so hard at me it frustrated me. I wasn’t real sure why he was laughing, but he said he knew exactly what we were after when I pulled into the parking lot, he just had to wait and see if he was correct.
I got a rose bush, bear, and chocolates. Truthfully I’m not sure, I haven’t opened the heart box just yet. I just assume it’s chocolates. And a sweet message.
Abug got a double Blu-ray set from us that was the animated and live action version of Cinderella. That’s what she’s been wanting and talking about for weeks. Grandma and Papa got her an Elsa Pillow. Memaw got her a cute little love bug.
I kind of figured the weekend before Valentine’s Day we’d go out since the 12th is our proposaversary date but we didn’t. We obviously couldn’t on Valentine’s Day because of the wedding, so he finally took us out Friday night to Outback Steakhouse. It was good, but my steak, being a higher cut, was just meh. He was happy with his choice though.
After that we went to our friend’s house to house/dog sit as they are on a work vacation. Technically it’s for work, but it’s totally vacation! And that was our low key Valentine’s Day.
