I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who, even though he tests my patience many a time, is the love of my life and I could never imagine it without him.
My hubby is a funny sort of fella. He's not very good at keeping things well hidden from me. At least he's not good about keeping hints that give away what his intentions are. He was just mentioning to our daughter last night something about learning his lesson to not ever get mommy flowers again because I got mad the last time on my birthday. There was much more to the story than just getting mad because he got me flowers. And it's not that I don't LOVE getting flowers...oh mercy no! I do feel they are a waste of money, unless you picked them for free, but I love flowers!
I didn't hear the UPS man pull up, but the dog made me aware that someone was outside. Even though the pkg states right on the address label, to be sure to ring or knock, the UPS man never did either. Maybe he figured the dog's few barks was warning enough. Needless to say, I couldn't figure out what the UPS man would be dropping off on MY doorstep. I sure wasn't expecting anything and didn't realize that they made floral deliveries.
Inside the cardboard box was this beautiful vase and red roses!
I was kinda sorta maybe thinking I might get some today.
I called to thank my sweet hubby, but there is a possibility that we won't be able to spend the evening together, as it's looking like the job he is working at may take all night. bummer. It's one of the down sides to his occupation of being a plumber.
In spite of his working late, I have been working on dessert for us. It's not going to be anything spectacular, but more than I typically do. I know, isn't it terrible? So creative & crafty and yet so lazy. pshhhh!
I put more work into the staging and the photography of these cuties than I did in making them. no lie.
No, they're not Pinterest material, but my family will be impressed! However, feel free to Pin them if you think I'm wrong... ;^)
They're just made from a box mix, but I only used one egg, instead of 2. They're less fluffy without the extra egg. I won't be eating these 4 since they have frosting, and I don't care for frosting. I just used canned white frosting with lots of red food coloring & then I sprinkled the red sugar crystals for my daughter. She won't eat yummy chocolate sprinkles on whip cream, but she'll eat the crunchy sugar on thick frosting! Blach! Give me sprinkles on whip cream any day! No, I will be content eating the leftover brownie that wasn't cut out. I love the hard, chewy edges and corners the best. And I think my daughter has weird tastes???
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
I'll be linking up to these parties:
