    Still thinking about a better arrangement, maybe get Teddy sitting on a little chair, and the balloon attached to something better. But I have all day, he just went out the door to his office, won't be home until 5 PM, and I brought these things out onto the table to see what I could do.

    I'll have to tell my Italian husband. This is a guy who, because he hates if I take him car shopping and does everything he can to sabotage it, asks the showroom salesperson: "Is this got a 2 or 3-body trunk?" icon_eek.gif Well, you've met him, so you know.

    BTW, I only got the roses and balloon yesterday, for obvious reasons, and had to get a friend to lure him out of our place long enough for me to run over to where I was buying them (he's home all day Mondays). And I had to bring them in from the car because I knew we were going out to dinner last night. Do you know how difficult it is to conceal a large helium balloon in a small condo?

    BodrumBoy saidLove it really Cute!

    Thanks, he makes it easy. He collects Teddys, and loves Godiva chocolates. That's this year's box, with a fluffy silk rose on the lid, that doesn't photograph well here. He also loves roses, hence that theme.

    You might be able to make out the table for 2 on the card. A smaller and more subdued one than I usually get him, I wanted something that reflected our going out tonight. Attached inside the card is a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant, where I wrote the words: "Anthony has a table waiting for us." (Anthony's the owner, and the exact table I want is already reserved, just the right distance from the entertainment onstage)

    Anthony will present us each with a red rose as we're seated, and he'll open the champagne I preselected to be standing by for a toast (we'll skip cocktails at the bar). When coffee & dessert are brought there'll be another tray presented with a small wrapped gift on it for him (a little personal, I won't reveal it here). Then we just leave, because the meal & tip are already prepaid. At times like these I dislike the awkward & unromantic settling of the check at the table.

    I love doing these things for my husband, and to see his delight at each little surprise. I suppose an indication that I have too much time on my hands, but at least it keeps me occupied with planning tasks, something I did my entire former career, and which I actually enjoy.

    knowwonder saidThat is mighty sweet of you! Happy Valentine's Day to you too!

    And a Happy Valentine's to you! Really kinda minor what I do for VD, compared to Christmas or his birthday. It's more token, just an opportunity to remind him how much I love & adore him.

    That's why I don't sign onto the criticism of commercialized holidays like Valentine's, because I look forward to an "official" chance to do something for him, where all the pieces are already in place for me. I can just borrow everybody else's ideas & stuff, and it's done. With the added enhancement of it being on a special day intended for it.

    LOL! Reminds me of a BF who told me I have the ugliest feet he ever saw. icon_sad.gif

    But that brings me to a V-Day story about him, our first Valentines in 2005. (I have a story for everything)

    I went to a place that had the reputation as the best chocolate shop in that city, everything handmade on site. And I knew my BF loved their stuff.

    Inside I found tables full of different styles of empty heart boxes, which you took to the counter to be filled as you wished. A couple of them were "dressed" with a little evening gown and corsage on the lid of one style, and another with a man's tuxedo and black bow tie. I took the tuxedo box and got in line, the place busy on Valentine's eve.

    But in that ultra-conservative community I wasn't sure what the reaction would be, and if I'd be refused at the counter. And indeed, I got some double-takes and disapproving stares from other customers while I waited.

    At the counter the owner herself said to me: "Sir, that box you have is given by a woman to a man. The boxes for ladies have the dress on them."

    Here we go, I thought. "Yes, I know, but I want this one, please."

    She hesitated for a moment, looking me over, and to my relief finally said: "And what candies would you like in it?"

    I put in lots of bon-bons and other special treats, and the damn thing cost me around $250 USD as I recall (the box was $90 alone). But that was fine, my BF loved it, and kept the box. He may even still have it to this day, it really was kinda neat, and evoked all the functions we attended together in black tie.

    If he gave me this buncha crap, I'd beat the SHIT out of him, turn the roses into mulch, rip the stuffing outta da bear, pop the damn balloon, cram chocolates up his ass and break his heart on Valentine's day. icon_evil.gif

    Oh...and check the card for money before running it through the shredder.

    No. I do stories, as I said.
