My brother and his beautiful girlfriend sent me these lovelies for my birthday! I haven't gotten flowers for quite a while so this was pretty exciting for me. J asked me if I'd be taking care of them, and I said "maybe." I'm not exactly the most "green-fingered" gal you're ever going to meet. But if it means looking at these a little longer I will definitely do it. It brings a little spring into the house, and I think we could use it, especially since we are supposed to get up to 8 inches of snow tonight. Disgusting.
J also broke out the surprises this weekend for my birthday, he made a fabulous chocolate desert for me and bought some candles to go with the gorgeous flowers. It was as nice a setup as we've had since he proposed three years ago. It was a really nice night.
I guess we will just have to find fun things like this to look forward to in the midst of all the work that will be the next 11 weeks. But, I fully plan on keeping you all updated on how long before summer vacation is coming! Eleven weeks (a little less, eleven weeks from last Friday) until vacation begins. I got through the last 11 without issue, I should get through the next 11 as well. At least I have a great, relaxing week under my belt to begin with. It'll keep me from being dragged back into it kicking and screaming, but it might not stop me from being a little petulant..
