iLove you

Let's take a moment to veer off the pregnancy course and talk Valentine's Day. There is a lot of mixed reaction around bloggers of loving it or hating it. As a girl who loves anything to do with love I am a pretty big fan of it.

I think more so because (warning:humble brag ahead) I have a husband who doesn't treat me special only on 2/14. When it comes to planning, purchasing, surprising David blows me out of the water. While Valentine's Day is usually just reserved for homemade lasagna (by him, not me) and a movie at home this year I wanted to treat him.

So I decided to buy him something he wasn't expecting, an iPad mini. Some could say it was because I wanted possession of my iPad back - and this is also 100% totally true.

In typical Parker fashion I could not wait until Friday to gift him his present. Afterall we don't need a holiday for out of the blue gifts do we? So on Monday he got his very own iPad mini from mini! And I haven't seen him since.

So the moral of this story is, buy your man something nice if he always does nice things for you. A little goes a long way. Hey look, I got my iPad back!

  2. SO sweet!! My husband is the same way, and he never wants or asks for anything! I spoil him as best I can, but usually all he wants is pizza and craft beer. haha!

  4. You've inspired me! We're normally pretty low-key for Valentines day. However Zack is so good about surprising me and doing sweet things, I need to figure out a way to surprise him too. He is very difficult to buy for, maybe tickets to something or a mini get-away?

  6. You left out the fact that I usually crash your Valentines Day every.single.year. And also partake in lasagna and give you a sussy and your hubby wine! Pshhh #howrude!! Anywhoodles - I bet the money you save by not letting him charge to your iTunes account anymore will pay for that mini in no time. See you in 2 days to crash your lover holiday.... Again! xoxo the forgotten original love of your life

  13. You sound like me! I can never keep things from Kory, so I always end up telling him about something that I have planned or something that I got him. I hope your hubby loved the ipad and you love having yours back!

  16. We weren't going to do gifts this year but at the last minute I decided to order Theo a new wallet that he wanted. Just a little something. Definitely not expecting anything in return!

  20. Seriously I think we are so alike...I definitely can't keep a secret or I'm usually just so excited to give a gift to someone as soon as I buy it. And to find one that benefits you both...now that is genius!
