Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

love Valentine’s Day!

Today is so exciting. I know a lot of people think it is a commercialized holiday to sell flowers, candy, and jewlery, but I’m a typical girl and I still get giddy at the thought of V-Day. This is our first married Valentine’s Day, so thats exciting too. A man at our church owns a large flower store in town and asked Will to help him deliver flowers as a fundraiser for the youth group. So Will enlisted his dad to be the van driver while Will makes the deliveries. Its a long day, he actually got up before I did this morning!

Saturday night we went over to Will’s parents and ate dinner and watched Troy. We also got our valentine’s day gifts from them. I got a cute OU shirt and some good smelling lotions and soaps. Then last night we went over to my moms and got our gifts. She really spoils us. Its funny how practical our gifts are now that we’re married. There was a time that I had to “borrow” some toilet paper and dishwashing soap from my mom because we decided to use our money to buy OU season tickets instead of groceries (We are young and stupid I guess).  Anyway, in our bags there was a huge pack of toilet paper and Electrosol dishwashing tabs. Then we each got a Wal-Mart gift card and cash. Plus way too much candy. That was great. My mom always overdoes it on “small” holidays, but I’m not complaining. smile

I got Will OU vs Baylor b-ball tickets. That’s a story in itself. I was so proud of my idea to get him these tickets because I had been hearing how incredible Baylor was doing and how they could win it all. So I got the tickets thinking this was going to be such an awesome game. Well, I’m terrible about getting excited about gifts I got people and wanting to tell them before the day comes, so I dropped some hints about OU b-ball and asked how Baylor was doing. Will then proceeded to tell me how terrible they were this year and how everyone is beating them… it was the Baylor WOMEN who were doing so well… not the MEN! smile I was so disappointed and Will could read it all over my face. He eventually guessed my “best ever” surprise. We had a good laugh and held eachother on the couch. So, he already knows his gift, but thats not a big deal. I also had a heart shaped cake made for him that says Go Sooners beat Baylor, so that will be a surprise.

I guessed Will’s gift for me, or at least I think I did! smile I think I’m getting a pair of shoes I’ve been wanting, so we’ll wait and see. We’re going to eat tonight, and then I have to go home and study away. I have a huge test tomorrow, so that will be the end to a wonderful day, yuck. smile <3

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
