|Aren't these bags adorable?! I won them from The Mandatory Mooch.|
I am very very very excited for Valentine's this year because Matt and I are going to do something incredibly special! Today is the day that we get to find out if we are having a baby boy or a baby girl! This will be the first time we get to see our little sweet pea in an ultrasound picture, and I can't wait. I can't think of anything that I'd rather do on this Valentine's Day. Matt and I both arranged to have the day off, and we're looking forward to spending the whole day together, and having a nice dinner out later this evening. I'm certain that this is a Valentine's Day that I will look back on with fondness for the rest of my life!
When I saw that the prompt for this weeks writer's workshop was a Valentine's Day that you remember, the first memory that popped into my head is one of the worst Valentine's date I ever had. This happened back in high school, with a guy I had been dating for a few weeks (believe me, it didn't last long after this). We saw a movie together (not a bad start - not great, but not terrible either), and then decided to get some food. I guess he decided Taco Bell was a fabulous place for a romantic date, so that's where we headed. By the time we parked and got out of the car I was pretty annoyed (I don't know why I didn't just say something). He got out of the car ahead of me, and started walking to the door. When I got out of the car I slammed the door, but I forgot one very important rule about closing a door: DO NOT leave your thumb in the door! He had already pushed the lock button on his key ring, so I couldn't even open the door to get my thumb out. I don't know if it was the anger or the adrenaline, but I didn't feel any pain at first, so I calmly asked him to come back and unlock the door. He sauntered over, thinking I had forgotten my purse in the car. He was a little shocked when he saw my thumb, but I don't think he ever apologized at all. After releasing my digit we continued into Taco Bell, as we ate my thumb began to throb agonizingly. A few weeks later my thumbnail fell off, and I dumped the guy.
Hope your Valentine's Day is more good than bad today!
