day of love.

Well as you all know Valentines Day was yesterday! Trevor and I tend to keep our Valentines Day low key, but still a little more special then your average day. As some of you may remember, I hate chocolate chips... and most chocolate in general, so I never make chocolate chip cookies, which just happens to be one of Trevor's favorite cookies. So to show him how much I love him, haha, I made him a giant heart shaped chocolate chip cookie (with sprinkles added for that extra touch!) I even almost put a big I love you in frosting but knew he wouldn't like the frosting so opted out, even though I knew it would make it look that much more cool. When I was picking up the cookie supplies at the store I cam across the pretty decent sized Reese's chocolate heart. Trevor LOVES Reese's, so I couldn't resist! I made that Be Mine sign for him and had this all on display as a surprise for him when he got home from work. He was indeed surprised!
Trevor also surprised me. He brought me a bouquet of flowers! While I loved them, I was kind of thinking he must have spent way too much money on flowers. Flowers that are just going to die. I kept telling him that I loved them, they were beautiful and smelled great, but that from now on he could bring me home flowers on any other day then the most expensive day to buy them, haha. Trevor told me he realized he had never brought me flowers before (excluding the chocolate roses he brought me when we were dating) and had heard me say something about it once, so he had decided to get me some. How can I complain about that? I mean my husband remembered me saying something? haha! Anyways I put them in water and enjoyed them all night, along with the big thing of yummy cupcakes he brought me. We rented a movie and did the all time favorite dinner and a movie. It was a great night. Trevor kept calling me his Valentine, and saying Happy Valentines Day to me, and I loved it :) Hope you all had a great day as well!
