valentines day

Valentines Day was pretty good for us. We went to dinner at the Olive Garden and went to the theater to see Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif. All thanks to the gift cards we got for our birthdays. Free Valentines date night is the awesomest thing ever. Seems how I no longer am employed, things have been a little tight, well, a lot of tight. It worries me not to have much money...we have enough to make our bills, and that's it.

These are the flowers that Brian got me. I'm so happy. I'm glad he always remembers that Daisy's the best. They are my favorite, and that I don't like pink or red roses.
They are so pretty. I convinced him to get them early and because they were already wilting, we got them for like 7 bucks, which is perfect for a tight budget.
Ah, such pretty daisies. I like them. And they last forever...

I've always liked the wat the Olive Garden looks on the outside. I like how it looks like a really old building, and that they try ot make it look like its actually not from around here.

I think this one is my absolute favorite. The rock work is so much nicer than the brick work.

Such a bad picture of me. Bleh...but Brian took the picture and he always looks so cute.

Being jobless has its perks...

Did I tell you all that i got a job, I just don't start until March, which I kinda think is lame, but at least it is a job. It's better than nothing. I will start at $10 an hour, and will get no less that 25 hours a week. It is less than I was making before, but it is guaranteed more hours, so maybe I will make a little more in the long run. At any rate it will pay the bills. I just took my drug test the other day, and the nurse was warning me about how over the counter meds may cause a positive test and what I turn to Kim, who was with me, and said, "Oh no! They're going to know that I drink coke and take tylenol." She thought it was funny.

Now that I don't have to work for a bit, I don't really know what to do with myself. I've cleaned til I want to never see a dirty thing again. I spent an entire week baking anything and everything I had stuff to make things with. I've caught up on a lot of my crafting stuff. And now I am left without anything to do for another 2 weeks. Hooray for me. I'm about ready to go through my filing cabinet and redo my filing system. That's pretty sad...

Anyway, I had a spare minute so I thought I'd catch you up on how things are going. Talk to you later...

I turned 24 yesterday. I don't really feel old, but it does make a bit sad to realize that I will be a quarter of a century next year. My birthday was good. We went to Chile's for lunch and we bought a new game to play. It's called carcassonne hunters and gatherers. It's just like the regular carcassonne game, but with different pictures on the tiles. I love it. There is one called discovery and one called new world that I want to buy too. Any way, I thought I would show you what my parents got me for my birthday because I like them alot!

These are saucer size plates.
Salt and pepper shakers

A handsoap dispenser

And I actually got this for Christmas, the apple cookie jar

And the apple mugs that I love

But now I need to find one of these to put them on.

And then I started looking at more dishes I want.

I really like this one with the reds and the greens. Perfect for my kitchen.

I just like it.

Who doesn't want/need a nice set of casserole pans?

I'm particularly fond of these oval red ones.

And the ones below it too.

Anyway, I am obviously doing my kitchen in apples. I have so much good stuff now, I can't wait to have my own kitchen again, but I think I will start buying casserole pans and serving platters, because I don't really have any. Looking at all this dish stuff has made me want to cook like crazy. Anyway, I should get going, I have to make treats for tonight. It's my family birthday party, and my side and his side are coming, so I'll talk to you later!
