Better late than never

My wife is way better than I am. I've come to grips with this, but she keeps telling me it's not true (that's just because she's still in denial).

For Valentine's Day, she did all kinds of cool stuff. I won't go into all the details, but let's just say one of the many things she did involved removing the original fortunes from a bunch of fortune cookies and inserting her own messages about why she loves me.

I'm a jerk, because when last Saturday rolled around, I woke up with nothing for her. I have a good excuse (well ... a semi-good excuse). Earlier that week when I was going to finalize everything, I got sick and was flat in bed for two days.

Long story short, I finally got everything together and gave her my gift yesterday morning.

Since she is a stay at home mom, I figure the best thing I can give her right now is time to be by herself. As a result, I tried (somewhat in vain) to make our bathroom look like a spa. I had a bunch of candles, fresh fruit, ice water, soft music, her robe, etc. all laid out for her and set her up with a bubble bath, while I played at being a defensive lineman and distracted our daughter. It went over okay, and I thought I would include a couple pictures, just so you know it actually happened.

Enjoy our shoebox of a bathroom:







Here are a few in the harsh light of day, since the others are a little blurry without the flash:

Awwww. You did very nice (sounds like she liked it).

That was me. I am the least romantic person ever :( I ran to the store and got something good, but still, it was lame.

That was so sweet! And awesome that you went ahead and did it even after Valentine's had passed - that was the best part of all!
