Happy Birthday and Valentine's Day!

Yesterday (Friday) was the hubby's birthday! We decided that we would not really do gifts this year for birthdays and such, just so we could save more money--that was well and fine, especially since I've been sick for the past 3 weeks and didn't have time or energy to get the hubby a gift anyhow!

I did manage to get the hubby 2 SMALL gifts for his birthday......a new razor (which is orange and blue--can't go wrong with those colors) and a Disney visor (for playing golf and for when we go to DW!) See? I told you they were small gifts--since we had already decided not to do anything, he was more than happy with those 2 items--especially the razor, he's already used it. Hopefully I won't make Carrie's "bad gifts list"! HA!

It was a low-key birthday since it was so cold here, I was sick, and hubby had to be on the tractor until "later" in the day. Nothing big--we just gave him his gifts, grabbed something to eat, and he blew out the candles on his birthday cake. See? Nothing big.
I had decided Thursday night that I would get up on Friday morning, then leave as soon as I could get in to see the Doctor--I have been sick for 3 weeks now and just couldn't seem to shake whatever it was I had. First was strep throat the last week of January, which turned into the Flu last week/this week, and then a bad cough, etc. Cecil tried to talk me into staying at work until noon on Friday, but I just kept saying that there was no sense in that--if I was staying until noon, I might as well stay all day and the longer I'm at work, the harder it is to leave, etc. Here's why he wanted me to stay at work!

He sent me flowers! Here's the kicker! I didn't get them on time! They came about 10 minutes after I left work yesterday morning! : ( Turns out, my mother-in-law got off work early, drove to where I work, picked them up and then we picked them up from her house last night. It was so sweet of him to send flowers though. I haven't received flowers in YEARS from the husband! I will confess though, I was like "No! You could have bought 10 or 12 other things rather than spending who knows how much on a dozen roses!".......He just laughed and said "I know!".....
It was a nice gesture though!

Here's to the hubby on his 31st birthday AND a great, big Happy Valentine's Day to y'all!
