This week has been all about red, cupids and valentines. At work we did a “Secret Cupid” drawing. This is similar to a Secret Santa. We drew names and then Tuesday through Friday, you were to give a little gift of your choice to your secret person each day. I had so much fun doing this and luckily, I drew a friend of mine that is a lot of fun to be with so she enjoyed all of my gifts each day.
My co-workers and I had a good laugh all week at my Secret Cupid. On Tuesday, I got my first gift…okay, this is fun I thought.
Then nothing for the rest of the week. What the heck! I didn’t know what to think and the other girls were opening a gift each day asking me, “What did you get?” Nothing! I was beginning to wonder what happened to my Cupid or did she just not get how this whole thing was suppose to work or was I not worthy, or did she hate me? By Friday, my friend Peggy brought me a gift because she felt bad that I wasn’t getting anything. Hahaha, how sweet is that! Thank you Peggy, I appreciated it! Some of my other friends (no names mentioned Jean…) were laughing their “arse” off at me. Nice~ Anyway, I finally got a note today with a box of chocolates apologizing for not being able to deliver this week because they have been a sick Cupid. Oh, how awful and I feel bad for her. It was still a fun idea and I enjoyed seeing what others got all week. Great ideas and it put smiles on many faces. Maybe next year, I’ll get a healthy Cupid. ha!
I spend most of my days with the kindergarteners and I just loved the T-shirt my little guy had on today. Adorable!
To also go along with my Secret Cupid fiasco, we had a pot-luck lunch today at school. So last weekend, I made a batch of Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins. The recipe made 24 cupcakes. I knew I didn’t want to bring them all because we always have way too much food at these potlucks. Kelly suggested that I only take half along and leave the other half at home. Okay, that works for me. At the end of the day today, I go to pick up my leftovers…only to find all 12 cupcakes still in the pan. Ugh!!! I brought them home and Megan was so thrilled, she barely waited for me to put the pan down before she was digging into one. She said, “Yay, I was hoping that no one would eat them!” Hmmm….I think that is a compliment. Anyway, it made my day, seeing my kids happy for my cooking. Loser co-workers! ha! (except the ASD staff). 🙂
It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m still in love. Nate started my day off by bringing me a cup of coffee and had a card and small gift waiting for me in the kitchen. The card was funny and alongside of that was the newest Michael Bublé CD. Whoo-hoo!
A great combination and I knew I’d play it tonight with dinner. As always, Nate loves to make a nice dinner for us. This year it included the girls along with Megan’s friend Emily. Valentine’s Day dates have changed a bit, but we love having our girls involved, if they want to be. Someday, they’ll be with their boyfriends, not us. Nate made a Lobster Macaroni and Cheese dinner. He was intending to buy cooked lobster, but Byerly’s only sells them raw, so he bought a lobster tail (along with directions on how to cook one) and got to work. It was kind of cool to see. Glad it was just a tail, not sure I’d like that whole live lobster thing in my pan….in my kitchen!
What a fabulous dinner it turned out to be. All of us girls gave it a thumbs up! Nate knows how to pleas us ladies…all four of us, that’s not an easy task, but he did it.
I hope you enjoyed your Valentine’s Day with your sweetie!
