Day 1: I made Jason a little scrapbooked pamphlet. I can't really call it a book because it was only 3 pages ... anywho ... There was a list of 10 reasons I love him and a list of 10 of my favorite memories with him.
Day 2: Throughout the day I sent him several email "love notes". I like to think it helped to break up his day of studying.
Day 3: Giant Rice Crispie Treats shaped like Hershey Kisses. These would have turned out a bit better had I been able to find a funnel to shape them with. Have I ever mentioned how annoying our Walmart can be when trying to find random items such as a funnel? No? Well, that is a gripe for another post, another day.
Day 4: I made a note that said, "I love you BEARY much" and attached it to a bag of gummy bears. Cheesy I know.
Day 5: I wrote him a love letter in code, you know like you wrote in Junior High to your friends just in case someone else found it. I don't think he actually had the time to decipher it until 2-3 days later.
Day 6: I wrote notes on little kid valentines and taped them all over the house for him to find.
Day 7: I filled a little jar full of pink, green and purple conversation hearts and wrote a prescription to take 1 pink one twice a day to remember how much I loved him, 1 green one twice a day to remember how much Tab loved him and 1 purple one twice a day to remember how much Benton loved him. He totally OD'd the first day. Good thing he was just left with a sugar buzz.
Day 8: Tab, Grandma (Jason's mom) and I made him some yummy sugar cookies that we decorated. More like Grandma and I decorated while Tab gorged himself on frosting but hey, what can you do.
Day 9: Tab, Grandma and I paper machéd a balloon and painted it red and wrote on it. Tab and I stuck little notes inside it.
Day 10: I made homemade fortune cookies and stuck little "love" fortunes in them.
Day 11: I made him a candybar letter, which of course didn't have any candybars on it, as the man doesn't believe in eating chocolate.
Day 12: I made a heart shaped Pizza for dinner
Day 13: I printed up the words "I love you" in 100 different languages. I cut them up into stips and stuck them in a cute little jar and made a tag for it that said "Jar of Love"
Day 14: The big day. I made a full meal, which I rarely do. I usually just make a main dish and a veggie. But I made Fettucine Alfredo, Augratten Potatoes, corn, salad and a yummy drink. For dessert I made a Strawberry Parfait. I put a valentine's tablecloth on the table and set up some candles and spread flower petals on the table. It was cute...see.See, doesn't it just look so yummy?
And I made these yummy drinks. The frozen raspberries floating in the top are my favorite part. Tab kept asking Jason and I to "cheers" him over and over again.
And finally, the Raspberry Parfait. Now this is how it is supposed to look with the oreos.
Oh look at that yummy goodness.
But, sometimes a woman has to cater to a silly husband how doesn't believe in chocolate in any form. Thus the stawberry wafer cookies instead of the oreos. What's else would a woman to do for her man on Valentine's day?
