Valentine's Day

So...Mine came a little late but it is ok. On Wednesday we had decided that V day was kind of pointless and neither Chad or I cared if we celebrated it. So we agreed that we had already spent too much money on the car so we weren't going to spend any money on the 14th. So we spent the eveining in watching movies, and the Office of couse. (Chad is addicted to that show!) Anyway before we had decided not to get each other anything, I had ordered Chad some cufflinks from Ebay (my addiction). So I gave him those and a card and Chad gave me nothing...which I was fine with! But Yesterday after work Chad picked me up and when I got in the car he said Happy Valentines day and handed me a bag. It had a chocolate gift basket with a little teddy bear in it. He was planning on getting it for me I guess but it was from a specialty store down town and he hadn't been down there in time. It was a nice surprise yesterday though. I think he felt bad. He asked the woman who owns the shop put the basket together for me. She had already taken apart all of the baskets. Anyway...i took a picture of it, i just forgot my camera so I can post it later.

Other than that we had a fun a relaxing weekend. We hung out with Logan and Katrina on Saturday. On Sunday Chad's Grandfather was being set apart as the new stake patriarch. We were invited to that and then a little lunch. It is pretty cool though. He is 84 and that is a huge calling. He will do a great job though. Chad's grandfather and my grandfather are very similar. They have a lot of the same qualities and have held a lot of the same callings. My grandfather actually gave me my patriarcial blessing and he sealed Chad and I in the temple. They are both great men!

Anyway, work has been very slow today...I have been putting together a bunch of recipe's for the YW's fundrasier. Which we are accepting any recipe's for...so if you have a good one let me know and I can add it to the list!

Anyway...That all for now.Have a good day!

hey, so the chocolates are a good idea, but save the teddy for a baby. i have like 50 bears from old bfs and they all sit in a bag in my mothers basement unused...maybe i'll pull them out.
josh said you and chad were thinking about getting a new car. i vote yes on that, so you dont have to worry about it anymore!

How much fun. We decided not to get anything for each other for valentines either because we are going to maine in a couple of days. I made Curtis a card and he gave me nothing in return. I guess I shouldn't have felt bad since I told him not to get me anything but when it came down to it I did, I guess it is my own fault...dang it!
