Since that crazy snow storm came through, I quickly ran out of time to go shopping for Valentine’s Day. I have never been one of those guys that wait til the last-minute but this year was not my fault. I was snowed in against my will and could not get to the store. What was a guy to do?
I did make plans for Valentine’s Day by arranging a hotel room for BrittWhitFun and I. This was a big deal for my wife cause it was going to be the first time she was going to leave the baby overnight. I jut needed to get other stuff like a nice card and maybe some of her favorite candies.
I went to the local Wal-Mart and managed to get in. I say that cause you would not believe all the males that were in there. Every guy had a teddy bear, a rose, a card, and a heart shaped box of chocolate in their hand as they fought their way to the front of the store. I quickly grabbed some candy and a card and threw a few elbows to get what I wanted and headed to the front. I even managed to grab a bottle of wine and some decorative rose petals. If you are going to do Valentine’s Day then you have to do it right. I waited in line for about twenty minutes at the “speedy” checkout and left unharmed.
Once I arrived at the hotel after being stuck in some leftover snow for 30 minutes, I checked in and decorated the room and gotta shower and a quick workout at the downstairs hotel gym and rush off to pick up my Valentine. Once I got her we went and had a not so quite dinner at the Stone Mountain Grill where we fed our faces like it was going out style. After we went back to the hotel and that is all there is left to say about that.
Every year on Valentine’s Day I have a tradition where I get K-Dub a book and a card. The book usually has a Valentine’s Day theme and I put the year in the corner along with a special message from Daddy. I went to Target and found a book that was so cute called I Love You So… She loved it and I love giving it to her. It’s just a special thing from her Daddy to her.
So that was Valentine’s Day and I have to say that after doing all that, I was so tired but I would not trade those smiles on my wife and daughter’s face to save my life. Worth every elbow thrown.
