I made Martha Stewarts Linzer Cookies (with a twist- I used a variety of jams: apricot, blueberry and blackberry since that is what we had left over from a Harry David Gift someone gave us awhile ago). He had roses delivered- which was quite unlike him. He usually gives me tulips!

But all in all- we usually just spend more quality time with one another. Such as taking a walk along the beach at Laguna Beach or near a neighborhood lake with our dog. =o) Simple but heartfelt is what we go for.

Got some roses at work yesterday!  Last night all of us (me, my son and T) went out for Japanese, and tonight we’re going over to T’s house for a cookout and to watch some great movies and just relax.  He’s got some other gifts for us but won’t give them until tonight.  He won’t get his gift until after dinner and before the movie tonight either!  My son got him a box of candy (really cute), this really cool kinda specialty rice krispy bar with rainbow giant mnm’s in it, and a periwinkle polo shirt that I’ve been looking for forever!  It matches T’s eyes and is his best color..silly me.

We are just spending time together today. Which right now translates to: he is watching college basketball and I am on weddingbee. Typical. ๐Ÿ™‚ But tonight we are going to make dinner together and watch the movie "Fireproof".

We’re far away too, so had tulips waiting for me on the porch this morning, with a teddy bear and some chocolates. Totally typical, but I love it! I just sent him a card, but when he comes in town next month I’m going to have some framed pictures of us/me for his office and the apartment. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got a dozen and a half red and orange (more like coral)  roses…red for love and orange for desire. (I can’t believe he looked that up!) Then he got me a huge box of my fave candy, and tonight he’s going to smoke some ribs and bologna for dinner. I didn’t really know what to get him because he hates sweets and is super picky about colognes. So, I’ve noticed when we’ve been at walmart he always looks at those Conair Sound Machines…the ones that do the thunderstorm, ocean, rain, rainforest noises. So I just got him that and he LOVED it, haha! And, he was totally surprised that I would have even thought to get that for him.

Fiance and I are super poor with the wedding and decrease in monthly income, we are not having gifts but instead a nice home made dinner with brownies and ice cream for dessert! Which is totally fine by me.

I gave my hubby a poster size print of a shot he took while we were on our honeymoon. We took a hot air balloon ride over the red rocks in Sedona AZ. We’re going frame it and hang it in our living room.

He gave me something wonderful.  A few weeks ago I sent him a link to this Weddingbee post (http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/01/28/cut-arts-silhouette-giveaway/) and asked if that was something he could do through Photoshop.

Well- he did!  He took a photo of us during our ceremony and made a silhouette! He had it framed and I love it!
