One Milkshake, Two Straws


oDl6Iw8SoI01sp160KXu8MAO85g9lq

One milkshake, two straws is what the front of the card said that my husband got me for Valentine's day. It was too too cute! We had agreed not to give gifts this year, and just go out to dinner tonight, but he surprised me with a few little things!
Let me just say that these little surprises were WAY better tha the Birchbox that I got, and totally made up for it :)
The chocolate dog, my husband told me, was from our chocolate dog (Ollie). I have gotten into wearing the no crease headbands, and he found me ones that have a heart and say nurses on them. Anddd he got me the cutest pair of hemostats that you could find. I guess only people in the health care field will care about that one. But who doesn't love Starbucks?!?! I know how much my husband hates that place, so I love him even more for getting me that. I have already used everything but the Starbucks - I am saving that for a particularly rough work week.
Ollie also got a Valentine's day snack - heart treats that he LOVES from Target. If you hurry, they may have some let for your pup, and I highly recommend them. I don't know if he has ever liked treats as good as these. He liked them so much in fact, that while I was getting ready for work, he sneaked into the laundry room, tore the box off the dryer, and ate them all. Which in all reality, was quite brave of him. He normally waits until we leave for this kind of behavior. I am chalking it up to his love of these particular treats. 
I was actually kind of sad that he destroyed the box so bad, it was so cute! But every treat was gone. Needless to say, he didn't get dinner that night. 
We're going downtown to the Old Spaghetti Factory for Valentine's dinner tonight - I am so excited because we haven't been there in forever! I wanted to wear a maxi dress styled for the season, but it is such a slushy mess out right now that I think I may have to rethink that option. We will see what tonight brings!
I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's weekend! What were your plans?

  2. That's such a cute card and I love that your husband still surprised you with a few treats. Old Spaghetti Factory?! Are you talking about the one downtown Toronto?! I never heard of it before until I moved here, so I'm not sure how many there are or in what other places, but I immediately got excited thinking that you might be near me.
