I 'Heart' My Hubby



My hubby is such a great guy - he bestowed me with the best Valentine's Day gifts ever: caffeine and accessories!

Actually, he and the kids gave me a new coffee maker, because ours was on its last leg. It's the kind that where you can set the timer to grind the coffee and brew it each morning. Be still this coffee lover's heart! And, he got me the new Vera Bradley "Alice" purse in the Poppy in the Fields pattern. Love it! Now, I can't wait for spring to arrive so I can sport my new bag. I have Hubby a hoof pick belt made in central Kentucky horse country (check out Summer is a Verb's postings on this) and the kids gave him a mug.

We went out Saturday night for a nice dinner and a little browsing at a local music store, a tradition for us whenever we're in this particular neighborhood. Actually, we did more than browsing, as I came away with Martha Wainwright and Vampire Weekend CDs and Hubby loaded up on blues music. We then came home to watch UK beat Tennessee. Woo hoo!

It's snowing AGAIN and the roads were horrible coming into work. I would have tried to telecommute, but we have this amazing communications guru conducting training with our work group today. I'm so looking forward to this. He flew in from Chicago last night, so here's hoping he'll be able to fly out this evening.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's weekend. Stay warm!

I am so glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your sweetie. I am also glad you received the Vera, I know you had admired the collection from a previous post. Do you have a picture of the gift you gave your husband? I don't think I know what that is. Try to stay warm!
