I had this great idea to get Lauren some romantic, yet pratical, Valentine's Day gifts. We need some stuff in the kitchen and my plan involved a card and gifts that talked about her "tender-eyes", wisking her away and something about spooning.

A few days before I planned to go shopping Lauren told me not to buy her anything because she just bought tickets for an event that could be used as a gift for both of us.

On Thursday I wrote "I love you" in the snow on the front lawn. On Saturday I signed it from the kids. This is pretty much the extent of what Lauren received for Valentine's day.
She was very thankful that we "penguin walked" the writing and did not use some other method of writing in the snow.

Most romantic thing ever. Seriously.

Mine was just about as sweet as Lauren's.

Ah, I think that's sweet. Reminds me of the first gift my (now) hubbie ever gave me. He called me at the office and said he had something for me. I'm thinking diamonds. Jewels. Roses.

He was thinking more along the lines of a tool box. Apparently he didn't like it that I used a can opener for a hammer.

I dunno...I think the "other" way would've been more impressive. But I guess you have to know your audience, huh?
