today is the official day of LOVE! Valentine’s Day! I hope that you have
enjoyed your 14 days of LOVE! We have had a blast preparing and seeing you
enjoy every day! Today you have to work but you are still receiving something!
Open each one on the hour designated and enjoy!
these were a couple of ideas but the rest had little notes from all of us, a couple $5 gift cards (to restaurants close to where he works), snacks for working, etc. he got the biggest kick out of my witty sayings! (i am pretty proud too because usually i call my little brother or my dad!)
After he opened the fist letter, he was told to open this:
This is your first envelope so get
excited!. This month being the month of LOVE, you get to be treated to 14 days
full of it! Each day you get to open the corresponding envelope and experience
something new! They can range from extravagant plans to the simplest surprise!
You have to wait each day for one! Get excited because it starts now! Find envelope 1!
then everyday he had to open another one 1 Home spa offering a body massage, foot treatment, or bubble bath
2 home cooked meal of whatever he chooses (cooked it as a family)
3 date night, comedy club and dinner (** We had tickets but ran out of time, so we just grabbed some dinner and went to pick things out for our kitchen!)
4 homemade gifts from the kiddos
** the kids made him some homemade cards and a valentine's day themed cake!
5 10 balloons filled with reasons of why we love him. he had to pop them all
7 daddy and daughter date and then his favorite dessert
8 gift card to a favorite store
9 belt keepers
10 kids and i ran to go get his favorite coffee from bigby
11 a choice of lunches from home cooked as a family, delivery of whatever he chooses, or go to his favorite burger joint
12 he got to plan his day of whatever he wanted, no one was allowed to complain
we have officially started ripping out our kitchen!
oh boy the story behind why!
one night mom dropped Jilliann off and i started cooking dinner, making tea, and doing dishes. that is a typical day!
well i had hambuger browning and stepped into something wet. i looked on the counter and saw that the tea was leaking. i just assumed my tea had overflowed onto the floor. i started to clean it up and realized that the water was clear.... hmmmm.
i opened the cabinet doors under the sink and there was mac and cheese all over the cabinet and a pool of water!
so then i started cleaning up the tea, the water underneath the sink, and then realized i just BURNT the meat!
dinner was a disaster, the cabinet was ruined (it had been leaking from a pin sized hole a very long time and we never noticed!), and i didn't have any sweet tea!
so i threw my hands up and said that was it!
we were going to start tearing it up and getting it pretty!
i even have little helpers
this is the awful mess of before!
i was trying to organize it and rearrange cabinets, but now we get to start over!
