Valentine's Day...my story.

What normally happens on Valentine's Day? Well, love happens! It's on the air for some reason, just on that special day!

Anyway, My Valentine’s Day this year was quite special =) My boyfriend surprised me with a bouquet of roses on Friday 2/12/2010 instead of February, the 14th itself. Why? Because he said “Well, you will expect something on the fourteen. So why bother?!". Well, he's right! =)

Friday the 12th, around 6 p.m ish, I went shopping with my good friend, Milli (love you, Mills!) and my bf told me he’d be out shopping as well for a new laptop. Milli and I went to Topanga Mall, Woodland Hills to look for a pink dress! I swear I don’t wear pink but I really wanted one for Valentine's Day. However, we could not find what we wanted. It was ridiculous!! Such a huge mall but no pink or red?! So whatever. We just went home.

When I got home I think it was around 10.15 pm, the light in the living room was dim, and there he was, watching TV...all smiling. He asked me if I found anything special, and i replied “not much!” (Though I bought a beautiful card with meaningful words in it and a picture frame with “Meant to Be” sign stamped on it- yeah I know!! LOL). We then chatted a bit when all of a sudden he took my hand and dragged me to the kitchen counter and asked “ Do you like this?” He pointed at the tiny lil' dart board that we placed there as a d├ęcor, and I was like “hmmm yeaaah??” (In my head, I was like, what’s wrong with this guy??). Then he pointed to the stuff next to it, a frame with our picture in it. “How about this?” I was like, “of course! Duh”.
Then quickly he pointed to this beautiful bouquette of roses next to it, and said “ and this?!” and I was like, “whoaaaa they are gorgeous!”. Well, I didn’t notice the roses earlier because the whole place was dim. I sniffed them real good, the smell was wonderful! They were the Black Magic breed, u know the huge dark garnet color with such an intense fragrant? He smiled and gave me the roses and the card. It said on it “Do not open till Valentine’s Day” which I did not till then. It was such a nice thought, at least in my book =). Arb, I love you!

However, the next day 2/13/2010, I found a Hall Mark receipt with 2 cards listed on it!! They are expensive but still WTF???? I know myself really well, I tend to think too effin much on small things, and blow them up really big till they pop!! Then I will get angry, moody and piss-off for days. So before I got to that level, I quickly asked : “WTH with these 2 cards? Who is the other person u wanna give it to? Don’t tell me your mom”. There's nothing wrong if he gives a card to his mom, really. i was just fuming at that time. He said “Why did u look for stuff? Stop doing that”.

“I did not, I just saw it there on the counter!” I replied. Well, we literally dropped the subject – I hate fighting. However, on the Valentine’s Day, I opened the card that he gave me on 2/12 at midnight, reading it out loud. It was simple, but Nice. I was like oookkkk….It was just very straight forward with “you are the love of my life bla bla bla I love you…”.

I told him thanks, it was nice! (I am spoiled I wanna hear more LOL) He smiled and handed me another card. And this one he poured his heart out, i got tears in my eyes reading the whole thing.(THAT WAS THE SECOND CARD THAT I LITERALLY YELLED AT HIM ABOUT - I WAS DUMB LOL) It was very sentimental and sweet- and one of the paragraphs says :

"I cannot tell you how happy I was when i first saw you walk into the class. I felt shock, a jolt, a sense of nervousness. I felt like you had instantly grabbed my heart, and I had instantly fallen in love. From that day on I couldn't sleep or think. All my thoughts were occupied by you. That is why i never gave up. This is meant to be. This is our love story..I love you."

=)

Well...i feel the same way...

We went to Cheesecake Factory on Valentine's night and had our dinner right after the Valentine's Day movie. Why Cheesecake Factory?? Coz our first date happened to be at Cheesecake Factory, right after class! (yep, Miss Michelle Clemon's class).

Well, I hope every girl has little things that she holds close to her heart. For me, one of them IS The Cheesecake Factory, Sherman Oaks. LOL! =)
