EDITED: see link at the bottom for my aprons in the mail!
So since I got married on valentines day its like double duty on February 14th to come up with a wonderful present for Vance to give to me that expresses all of the love, kindness, patience and helpfulness that goes into our marriage. Its a lot of pressure for a guy so I usually try to make it easy for him by ordering myself a present online and thanking him profusely for it. I'm sweet that way =). I also tend to buy myself some flowers some time around Valentines day so when my parents come over they see how thoughtful he is. Really the reason I buy flowers is cause Vance mentions something to Melia about how we need to buy mommy flowers around Valentines day and then Melia nags me into buying them whenever we go to safeway. But its fun. It is funny though cause every time my parents come over and I have flowers they are always "from Melia" or "from work" or whatever. It probably has something to do with my forbidding Vance from wasting money on flowers for me and letting me pick something USEFUL! Poor Vance. We also like to celebrate Valentines day by going to walmart the day after Valentines and buying discounted chocolate. Sorry I know, too much mushy stuff again. Back to the point. I have been wanting a fun apron for some time cause we all know Im a bake-a-holic and well its fun! So when I saw on a blog about a company called Flirty Aprons I ran(clicked) right over and ordered myself TWO! It is my anniversary AND valentines day after all! (There was also a discount if you ordered over so much so I did.) Then last night Vance tells me that he got in trouble at work yesterday. One of the guys he works with asked him what he got his wife for Valentines Day. Vance is like yeah its actually our anniversay too. So he asks what he got me. Vance says he got me a couple aprons. Then there is the look of horror. Holy crap you are in trouble man! You might as well write on the card: "Get in the kitchen and make me some food woman!" You are so dead. To which Vance tries to explan that I actualy wanted aprons and that they are fun aprons. His friend just shakes his head at him and doesn't expect him to live to return to work on the 15th. Vance has politely requested that at some point in our marriage if I ever want a necklace or ring or anything like that to please let him know so he can buy me something everyone expects him too so he can stop getting the looks of horror when he tells people what he got me for our anniversary/Valentines day. I guess I can review the no flower edict. But aprons are so much more fun!!
