Shannon has to work the evening of February 14th so we decided to have Valentine’s Day on his day off and a little early this year. We celebrated Valentine’s Day on Friday February 10.
I kind of went a little over what I had planned to buy but it just kind of happened. I bought Shannon a $25 iTunes gift card so he can fill up his iPod Shuffle he got for Christmas. Right now he only has about 50 songs on the poor thing. At 99 cents per song he’ll be able to fill it up and have extras! I gave him an adaptor for his car to play the Shuffle through the car radio but it doesn’t work on his stereo. When you put the cassette adaptor in it thinks it should “clean” the cassette heads – instead of playing music through. So I bought Shannon a new FM transmitter adaptor – we’ll see if it works better. Plus I gave his a nice card. Last year we gave each other the exact same card – weird! I also gave him a sugar free box of candies (they fit into his diet).
I love it! He did an excellent job picking out a ring that I would like. I told him I was picky about rings. I don’t like gold jewelry and we had talked a lot about what would work and what wouldn’t. It’s for my right hand ring finger. It is white gold and has three real diamonds in it. Shannon says this is a temporary ring until we can afford to get better ones for each other. It’s kind of a promise ring. Shannon doesn’t have a ring for himself yet. We’ll have to get one for Shannon that could withstand a lot. His job would destroy it – working on cars.
Plus Shannon got me a great card and to top it all off – two Cadbury Eggs!! He knows I go crazy for them and somehow got some before the season even starts.
We exchanged gifts and cards then went to eat at Jess and Jim’s in Martin City, Missouri. It’s an old stake house that has great food. We both cheated on our diets and had way too much food. It was delicious! When we got home we both had a chocolate desert! I had a Cadbury Egg and Shannon had a sugar free chocolate!
This was the best Valentine’s Day so far!
