I need help, it’s urgent!
Monday will be our 4th wedding anniversary. I always try to give DH a present that follows the traditional list. Year 4 is Fruit and Flowers.
It sucks because both are things that you can’t keep, you know?
Anyway I had this great plan of having my mom babysit our kids tonight and rent a hotel room near his work. I’d text him before he got home to not head home but come join me at the hotel. There, there would have been flowers, and fruit and champagne… And just us with no babies!
BUT! My mom is sick now and there’s no one else to take care of the kids. My great anniversary surprise is ruined.
I need a great alternative like, now! Can you help?

@mommytobee: Hmm, an edible arrangement? You could get them as fruits shaped like flowers. 🙂 And you could enjoy them with the kids…

@mommytobee: My mom does “man flowers” which is a 6 pack of my stepdad’s favorite beer with flower stickers on the caps. For fruit, you could do wine which is fermented fruit.
If you want something nicer, for fruit you could buy him something for his Apple(!) iPhone if he has one or splurge on an iPad.
Or you could do an IOU one fruit & flower weekend/night away and decorate the card with fruits and flowers.

LOL at “Manflowers”! That’s just awesome!
I was thinking of the edible arrangement thing, but they charge a crazy fee for delivery and it’s located in a place of town where it will be really difficult to go pick it up in this weather with the two kids in tow. So I don’t think it would work for me, unfortunately.

@mommytobee: Bacon roses for the flowers.
and Chocolate dipped Strawberries
or Cherry Pie!
