Nope, Nada, No...well...OK!

4 Christmases ago, Shawn got me a years worth of monthly delivered flowers. It was so unexpected, one of those truly surprise gifts.
The next year, he thrilled me again with the same gift, loved it, loved it, loved it!
But the next year, I was a 'bah humbug' and told him that the flowers were so luxurious, wonderful, appreciated... but pricey... and we were building the house, so I asked him to be good, cheap, penny-pincher, etc. He was a good hubby!
Then comes Christmas 2007, that naughty husband caught me off guard, yep... he got me monthly flowers again. I squealed in delight!!! The 20th of each month I am watching for the FedEx fella.
I grab the box out of the FedEx guys hands. Run inside giggling, hugging myself in excitement. Rip open the box... and start filling as many vases as I can with goodness.
Shawn includes a sweet message inside each delivery too!
I'm so glad he ignored me, so glad he thought to regive this gift, so glad he's mine!
This months collection was gorgeous and classic...

So jealous. I am afraid I have killed many a house plant so this would be perfect for me because something new and fresh would be coming every month. But, alas, we are poor. Sigh. LOVE THE SUNFLOWERS!

Gorgeous! Where did you get the shaggy cream rug? I have the same one in Addie's room and love it!

What a sweet and thoughtful and might I add rebellious hubby you have *wink*! Those are beautiful!

I agree...the individual roses are beautiful. I am sending this post to Steve's email. And I thought it was exciting looking forward to Family Fun and Pottery Barn. :)

What a great gift! I love when my husband gives me flowers, because deciding how to arrange them and put them in the house is half of the gift!

Shawn definately wins the 'romantic, thoughtful husband award!'

Hey Girl! Thanks for writing and Thanks for the compliment. I have already been reading your blog as I saw it on Cari's or Clarissa's blog and I love keeping up with ya'll. I am just getting started with this. Sherry Woody got me to do it and I really enjoy it. And it is fun reading about everyone's lives. Yes, I agree you have a great hubby. I knew he was a special one ever since I met him when ya'll were first in the Ward and we went to UAH at the same time. But he has a pretty sweet wife as well! I am so happy for both of you. You are making a great life and lots of fun experiences for your family!
love ya,
Sandy

I agree with Alisha.. do you think he could give our hubbies some pointers? although they can be pretty sweet, too, when they really want to ;-)
