I'm Back!

You all ready to hear the details of my Valentines day? I got a "Happy Valentine's Day, Katie" from Tom, and a picture from the kids. I gave a "Happy Valentine's Day" to everyone in return. Lame, right? That is fine though. I've never been one for Valentine's day anyway. Tom and I had a discussion on the subject, and I think we both don't like it because of the horrible experiences we both had as teenagers. I had a boyfriend give me a necklace that belonged to his sister. He said, she would never notice it was gone...romantic. I don't like seeing money wasted on gifts for me unless it was something that I really need, like deodorant or an iphone. And Tom once spent a whole lot of money on a sweater and some expensive perfume that he felt went unappreciated. So all you that spent your hard earned money on someone that you love...I feel sorry for you.

We didn't do nothing though! We had a very romantic lunch out with the Eslpin's at BJ's. It was delicious. Worth the hour long wait. We also got a table side view of a real life teenage Valentine's day date. Complete with mother picking up. Ah, too be young.

At least you got to be with the Esplins over the weekend! What more could you have asked for?

Since it is my bday I don't feel badly accepting gifts that will ultimately disappoint but I have in recent years indicated that I would prefer to buy myself something. So now when people ask where I got my necklace I say "I bought it for myself from my husband."

I like your attitude of not caring tho, and your husband must consider himself a lucky man.

I am with you about V-Day. we usually try to make a nod to the occasion, but it's very much not anything special. You can get your special gift after you post it! That way, I can get one from you! Mwa-ha-ha! Also- I agree- button eyes are creepy. Jason has had trippy dreams for a week.
