Valentine's Day Memories...

Since it's my second Valentine's Day with Kevin I started thinking about our last Valentine's Day. So here's how it went...

Kevin's brother was getting married on Valentine's Day last year and I assumed that Kevin was just going to go out of town for the wedding and be back in the afternoon. However two days before Valentine's Day Kevin mentioned that he was going home Tuesday night (the day before Valentine's Day) and was coming back to school Thursday morning. I said, "what about Wednesday, that's Valentine's Day." Kevin got that "oh crap" look and I knew he had forgotten. Kevin tried to cover for it saying that he thought we would go out on the day after Valentine's Day.

So Valentine's Day rolled around and I was by myself :( I went to my classes and to work. I was scheduled to get off work at 8 pm. My sis called me at around 7:45 and told me that my RA had called her and told her that my bathroom was flooding. So she was in my room looking for some towels to sop up the water. I started freaking out and the second I got off work I ran over to my dorm...and I'm not a runner so that about killed me. When I go there my sis told me that the flooding wasn't as bad as first thought. She said I could look in the bathroom to see the water damage. I moved to towels and opened the door and...

...Kevin was standing in my bathroom holding the biggest teddy bear I've ever seen and a dozen roses! He had come back early to surprise me and to take me out to dinner. I was totally surprised that he came back early and that he and my sis went to such great lengths to keep it a secret. I couldn't stop smiling the entire rest of the night. :)

After some of the shock wore off Kevin, Teddy, and I took a group picture...it took like 12 tries to get even this much of Teddy in the picture...















So needless to say February 14, 2007, was the best Valentine's Day ever! But who knows...today could be even better :)


I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!
