Valentine's Day came a bit early around here...


A number of factors came together to necessitate an early celebration of Valentine's Day: it falls on a Sunday this year, Chuck works all weekend anyway, and in general we try to boycott the silly one-day jacking up of flower prices.

Which is why Chuck brought home these beautiful roses last week!

Along with donuts for breakfast, a sweet note, and a whole lot o' chocolate. But that wasn't all. A couple of days later, he brought home an envelope labeled JANA AND PAM. I waited until my mom was over and then we opened to together to find . . .

A gift certificate for us to go get manicures and pedicures together, yay! What kind of suck-up husband shops for his wife AND mother-in-law for Valentine's Day? My husband, that's who! He's a keeper :). So what kind of amazing gift did I get for such a sweet husband?


I agreed to see AVATAR (in 3-D!) with him. I thought it looked really, really dumb and James Cameron's ego annoys me, but Chuck really wanted to see it so off we went. And as always, Chuck was right and I liked it a LOT. One of these days I'll learn not to question him in his attempts to broaden my horizons :).

A 'Chuck and Jana date' also allowed for a 'Grandma Pam and Clyde and Will date'.

Grandma Pam helped Clyde make Valentines - so cute!

She also gave each boy a new Pez dispenser - now in addition to Buzz Lightyear and Woody, Clyde has Thomas the Tank Engine and Will has Percy. Will walked around with Percy ALL DAY today :).

Happy Valentine's Day (er, week? weekend?) to everyone! Love you all!

What a good Husband! You are a great wife for agreeing to see Avatar, I still don't want to see it. For many of the same reasons you stated, but if you said it was good maybe I should reconsider...I don't know though...blue people?

ANyhow, glad you guys had a good Valentines Day early, and you look fabulous!

He really did go above and beyond-how sweet is that?!

Hmmm..Avatar, huh? I couldn't bring myself to see it. But now I'm intrigued....

How sweet is that I'd say he's a keeper.

Found it! I remembered all the way home. It was great seeing you. I didn't tell you how much I loved everything you were wearing - the orange, the necklace, the leggings. And by the way, I think you should keep the whole bunch - the 3 guys and Grandma Pam.

I'm impressed! You are so adorable Jana, I love reading your blog.

My husband, whom I've been trying to convince for a month to see Avatar just said "Are you sure you don't want to see Avatar?" After I've looked up times for 3 different movies that looked so so. Can I send him over for Chuck to rub off on?

Well I appreciate you telling Sam that everyone was getting to see this movie...because that is all he wanted for valentines day after that conversation with you.

Cute pics. I am very impressed with Chuck. And we are still waiting for you to visit...
