Happy Valentine's Day

Let's just start this post by saying that I can be a real baby sometimes. Tonight was one of those nights.

Rich and I went to the store to get some milk, and I was in a little bit of a bad mood. He's going out of town tomorrow on another track trip, and I have a hard time when he's gone. I get really sad and lonely. That had me down, and that also meant that he would be coming back on Sunday (i.e., Valentine's Day). I know this is pathetic, but I really wanted flowers before he left. I knew he wouldn't be able to get me flowers when he got back on Sunday, so I was kind of expecting him to get me flowers for tonight, even though I'd told him that I didn't want anything for Valentine's Day (girls can be silly like that sometimes). I came home from work, flowers. So, I was a little sad.

We went into Smith's, and, (me obviously not thinking) after seeing the Valentine's Day section in the store, I told Rich, "You didn't even get me flowers." Wow, I am rude. So, now I was upset, and Rich didn't feel so good either.

Anyway, we got home, and Rich asked me if I could warm up some water for hot cocoa. I went into the kitchen, and Rich went into our spare room (his room - where his closet and dresser are). He came back out with these:

I started to cry (making me even more of a baby) because I was so happy that he'd gotten me flowers and that I had been so mean to him. All I could do was apologize and smile and thank him. Isn't he so sweet?!

He'd gotten the flowers before he went to practice and had hidden them in the closet so I wouldn't even be able to smell them. He knew that I was expecting flowers and wanted to surprise me. And he did!

The flowers are beautiful - lilies and roses. These are the prettiest ones he's ever gotten me.

I asked him if I needed to get him anything, and he said that letting him buy "Little Big League" last night ($4 at FYE) was enough. He's so easy to please. I think I'll share my chocolates with him, too.


  1. I've been there before(a few times):) I can totally relate! Very pretty flowers.

  2. What a sweetie! And don't worry Shara! We have ALL had those moments! :)

  3. We are looking at your blog for the second time today because Savannah said "I wanna see Nelly!" randomly. She honestly always asks to see pictures of you both. It is so weird, she doesn't ask to see anyone else. Funny Girl... She is also still obsessed with "the mask" picture :)

  4. What a cute Husband... and just so you know- I can stalk just as good as the rest of them. :) Consider yourself stalked by us- but at least you know us, right?

  5. Oh Shara that is so NORMAL but it is still fun to read about. Sometime I should tell you about my first birthday being married to Micah...I was a real brat! To Rich: Way to read between the lines when Shara said she didn't want anything! Smart man!
