If you are thinking that I got these flowers on Saturday then...well...nice thoughts, but...no. I just really liked this little bouquet of my favorite flowers when I got it....and by "got it", I mean that I bought it myself...a few weeks ago.
No...Valentine's Day went the way I pretty much expected it to. I've learned not to expect anything, that way I won't be disappointed and someday...maybe someday I might be really surprised.
Now...before I continue...let me say a few words in the K-man's behalf.
For the K-man.....there were little "bottles" of liqueur...orange, grapefruit and my favorite, coffee.
I also got him 6 bars of his favorite candy bar....another liqueur-filled chocolate, but one that has been around for a very long time. Funny.....those disappeared very quickly. I'm thinking that he might had hid them. Can you imagine hiding chocolate from the other members of this family? I'm appalled!! I can't believe he would do such a thing. The very idea that he would......okay, okay, okay....I admit...I do have my own "emergency kit". But...in my defense...it has stuff that canNOT be bought here and.....if no one knows that I even have it, is anyone hurt by NOT knowing about its presence?
Moving right along...please.....
In case you are wondering...yes, I did buy myself my own box of chocolates. Knowing the boys the way I do, no...they weren't going to share. I'm also not a big fan of liqueur-filled chocolates (though I did "sample" a few from the K-man's box~~yummy!!). I would have really hated to be sitting there....all alone...awash in chocolate envy....so I got a box of some girly chocolates.
Aaaaannnnddd.......to show you that my plan to "change the way Japanese people look at Valentine's Day" is slowly working......I got this from a couple of my students. The chocolates were good and the best part is the metal bucket.....I have plans for that bucket!!!
Are you familiar with these little nuggets of total yumminess?
They are a bite of something most incredible.
And just because this is something I couldn't resist adding.....
When I Googled the Raffaello cookie.....pictures of the cookie and some other arty-farty stuff came up....and then....there on the third row of pictures....was this....
Seriously....did you honestly think I'd let this chance for some "eye candy" slip by??
I hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine's Day.
