Will You Be My Valentine?

It's time to add mine to the cute stories posted all over blogger about Valentine's Day!  First of all, in previous years, Brock ALWAYS out-smarts me on Valentine's Day and surprises me way better than I surprise him.  So this year was going to be different- because I had the whole day off yesterday!  And he had work and school until 5!  Bwahaha.  But he still got me.  He snuck home and put roses and a box of chocolates in the kitchen when I wasn't looking!!!  It was ADORABLE.  Just look :)

But don't worry, I still had the rest of the day to get him!  So here's what I did.  I set up a scavenger hunt for him around the house to find all the Toy Story Valentines that would give him directions.  First he had to push "play" on the ipod (which had a cute playlist I made).  Then he had to go around the house, get dressed up in a nice shirt and tie I set out for him, then in the last room, he opened the door, and I was in the dress I wore to our High School Prom together, holding one of the roses he gave me, and I said, "Will You Be My Valentine?"  And gave him the last Toy Story Valentine. :)  I had set up the room so we could take cute pictures like we were at a dance, and then right on cue, my ipod playlist went to our "song"...  "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain.  So we danced, and it was wonderful  :)  Here's a couple pics...

I know, I know... it's TOTALLY cheesy.  But I decided that it's better to be cheesy and enjoy life than not be cheesy and not have any fun.  So I went all out on the cheesy factor, and I'm totally proud of it :-)  

Also, it's not over!  I got us a Heart-shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's!  And it didn't set off the smoke alarms (like last year: see here ) because we actually have a full size oven to cook it in hahaha!  It was very delicious :)  And then we walked to Smiths in our PJ's and got a redbox, snuggled up on the cuddle bag, and watched a movie and enjoyed WAY too much chocolate and candy ha ha ha.  It was a wonderful night.  I know everyone says this, but I really do feel like I am the luckiest girl in the world. I love you Brock Taylor!!!
