"Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow"

Cody cooked, I set the table.





Anne and Maggie provided the desserts.








Now the night's over, and the dishes still need to be washed.





And the desserts most certainly aren't going to put themselves away.





But why do today what I can put off 'til tomorrow? Right now, I just want to snuggle with my BRAND NEW SNUGGIE!





Anne surprised and delighted me with this personalized cloak-blanket.




Here's a closer look at her handiwork.





I used to struggle and fight with blankets. Lucky for me, those days are long gone. Now I will be warm in style.

Thanks, Anne, for a great Valentine's Day!





The desserts were great, the Snuggie was a good surprise with lasting value, and the movie was the least romantic movie I have ever seen or will ever see (but it was so symbolic and profound).

What a thoughtful girl that Ann is! I can't believe you now have your very own personalized snuggie!! It looks just the way it does on TV. Looks like you and Cody went all out for V-Day...I taught you well!

the real thing everyone is wondering is if you have kissed her yet?

Some of these place settings look very familiar...

Who's anonymous? I'm laughing so hard and loving that Anne got you (and personalized) a Snuggie! Ha ha! Be sure to bring it tomorrow for me to wear in the lodge while you all ski the day away. I don't think I'll last very long!

Yeah--he's kissed her. And then she went in for about three more. Trust me--I know.

Michael said...

Who are you, anon? Show your true colors!

Diane said...

I am not anonymous! Sure glad you now have a Snuggie and don't have to fight with those d*@# blankets anymore. (I spelled it out, but thought I'd better keep your blog at a PG rating). Looks like a fun Valentines Day, and doesn't look like you missed out on my sugar cookies at all!!!

Okay--I admit it. I am Anonymous #2. I am not responsible for anything said by the first posted Anonymous comment. But now I have come clean. For those who want more information on the kissing, Anne has a blog---smoochingRMJ.blogspot.com where she has detailed every kiss: location on campus, time of day, duration and intensity. I highly recommend it--it is a fascinating read.
