Ok, even those of us who KNOW there is less than a 1% chance that we’ll get a proposal tonight, I know ALL wiating bees will have that kernal of hope buried deep inside during every fancy and casual dinner, every candy heart or flower exchange. While you can’t get rid of that little bit of hope, it can ruin your otherwise nice evening to put too much of your engagement expectation into tonight – your guy could do 100 things he normally doesn’t, ut if you’re really hoping for that question, it can kill all other good feelings.
Soooo, I’m going to try to post tomorrow what makes me happy tonight, even though I won’t be asking purplebee to cross me off tomorrow. I hope maybe asking everyone to post a nice thing about today/tonight instead of dwelling on the diappointment of another non-propoal Valentine’s Day might help get past it. NO waiting meltdowns tongiht 🙂

@Isilme: No disappointment for me- I know it isnt coming tonight- so we celebrated Vday yesterday! 🙂 It was great, I got flowers and an easel (which I have wanted for SO long!). 🙂 I painted him a landscape and he also got me chocolates amongst the other gifts
then we spent the rest of the evening watching Oz 😀

none for me either, unless my guy randomly surprises me with a visit, which i know he’s not [so much for the surprise part, eh?]. i did get to surprise my mom with some flowers and a card [she giggled all morning after she found them!] and she repaid me with a yummy brunch [i’m pretty easy to satisfy. lol] so valentine’s day is definitely a win this year!

@Bellanouva: Cool – was it a half-box easel that can hold your paints (got one for my SO for Christmas many years back)? I love those things – they’re like wooden Transformers for artists 😛

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
He took me out for a nice supper even though we had agreed that we wouldn’t do that this year haha. And he made me a surprise drink with pink heart icecubes. Oh and my mom got me eighteen birthday roses today but we didn’t have a vase so we were using a mason jar. My SO went out and got a new vase as a surprise (: I didn’t get a proposal but I did get lots of love from FI, my family, and my friends.

My SO made me a delicious dinner with onion crusted chicken, yellow rice, and tostones (Puerto Rican fried plantains). Then, he banned me from the kitchen while he baked me a surprise – my favorite cookies, peanut butter chocolate chip. It was actually super cute, the cookies were a reenactment of our first Valentine’s Day when he found out my favorite cookie from my friends and made them with pink foodcoloring. The first time, they looked a little funky/splotchy. This time, they were perfect

Well, I feel horrible after trying to be good all day – He went through loads of trouble, which I thought I told him I appreciated, and showed him, but with him it only takes one thing to make the whole night wrong 🙁
I’d tried to order him a goodie assortment to be delivered to his office, but UPS are being a$$es and won’t deliver it until today, so he only got one gift I’d gotten him, a nice pen set, so my mood was off a bit after beng so mad at UPS.
He surprised me with reservations, and before that we took a walk over to a part of the college campus where we met. He then gave me an earring and necklace set, but when I opened it… it was made of turquoise, which frankly I don’t even like. I’m not into western stuff, don’t wear anything like this, it’s nothig like any jewelry I’ve ever pointed out or gotten xcited over. I even remember telling him at Christmas when we were in the store where he bought the set that nothing in there was “me.”
He’d spent a lot of time and effort trying to get me something and surprise me, which is really hard because we share a car and work almost the same schedule, so he took off a few hours to go do this, but I couln’t quite hide my “why did you get me turquiose, which I never wear, which isn’t me?” face. I immdiately put it on, taking off the jewelry I had on. I felt horrible, and tried to make the rest of the evening work, but the damage was done. He asked me what was wrong, and all I could think to say was that it was pretty, I just didn’t wear southwestern style stuff too often. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. 🙁
He’d even come hom and set up some flowers and taken out the trash, which honeslty would have been enough for me without the other stuff. I made sure to tell him how much I appreciated everything then and there. I though we were doing okay and that the night was getting better, but then he got moody close to bedtime, and then it turned into an argument about how I obviously didn’t care about all the work he did (I did – and I told him over and over…. It was the dang jewelry.) and how I ruined the whole day and that was it. I feel like an idiot. I should hahve done better at hiding how I felt.

I had a nice day yesterday. =] I knew there would be no ring, but that was ok because I made him dinner of his choice and we exchanged gifts. His card to me was really special so I kept looking at it all night!

No ring for me, but I had a WONDERFUL day yesterday! He bought a new outfit to look spiffy for me (and he did), sent me my first arrangment to the office (I cried), had a fabulous dinner (which I barely ate because I admit I was nervous and suspicious), and then we went to see Black Swan (which I’ve been dying to see).
