Happy "V" Day

FIRST: Thanks for praying for my mom. The surgery went as planned and she is resting at home. She is still recovering from being put to sleep. (Something she didn't think they would do, she's had several hand surgeries and has been awake for each one.) Dad says she is sleeping most of the time, which is what she should be doing! The girls and I will go up Sunday night to make sure she doesn't overdo it this week and to help with my nieces. I can not wait.

Now that I've updated you: HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Chad and I were able to enjoy a real date last night. It was much like our first date, except we ate at Olive Garden instead of the mom and pop pizza joint and we saw a movie that I can actually tell my parent's about! (Read this post from last Valentine's Day to understand)

We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic and I LOVED IT!!!! I laughed and yes..I even got teary in a couple of scenes. Please...don't tell me how dumb that is I know I have issues. BUT when Rebecka and her best friend are just broke my heart and then at the end when someone does something AMAZING for the main character. was a picture of redemption and reminded me of Jesus. So there. My mind was just on my Savior. He had just spent the day thrilling me and that miracle we needed...He came through big time and right on time. How I love Him.

This morning all three of my people had their karate test. Everyone passed and yes, Chloe got high test score again. I'm so proud of ALL of them for working so hard. Chad and Chloe are now brown belts and Emma is a green stripe.

After the test we enjoyed dinner leftovers from Olive Garden and then we all took naps. It was heaven. After nap we needed to make a Wal-Mart run and since I still have a Starbuck's gift card, I was getting a cup of coffee.

On the way, Chad pulled into a shopping strip close to the Starbuck's, and I asked him what he was doing. His response was typical Chad.."I'm pulling into this parking space...let's go." We get out and walk into the "phone store".

I have to tell you I got a little tingle in my stomach. My cell phone and I have a love/hate relationship. The phone I dearly loved died right before I went to Texas last August, so we bought a nice phone very cheap on e-bay and I vowed to make it last until my contract was up and I could get a better phone with a little bit of a discount. Well....the time to do that was this week. I know anything about my phone contract so I did not know that. I just knew that my cell phone battery was starting to act STUPID. :)

So dream phone was out of our price range and I decided that I wanted a Blackberry Pearl, yes in pink. :) Well, when Chad told the salesman what I wanted he asked if he could make a suggestion. He and Chad talked shop while the girls and I examined all the phone stuff and before I knew what hit me, I was walking out with my dream phone. A pink Blackberry Curve. Before we got through Wal-Mart I was getting my e-mails. Darlene R. I'll have you know your comment was the first e-mail I received! I moderated your comment from the check out line in the Wal-Mart. It's the little things girls, the little things. :)

We have had a great Valentine's weekend, I hope you have too. I'm more in love with my man today than I was the day we were married and like I told him this morning..I can't believe it has been 17 years since our very first date. Who would have thought!

I'm going to post my 4th verse in the LPM Verse Challenge on Sunday afternoon. I'm also going to have another question from Nancy in NC. :)
