And that is what exactly what Armando did.
I am going to have to confess! I sometimes consider myself a material person...and...well.... its a bad thing! I know we all like material things, but I am willing to confess, I might expect material things....just sometimes. Okay no judging.... the first step of recovery is stating your problem, so bare with me.
Every year, for the past three years I have always dreamed up this big Valentine event! With roses and chocolates... a tear bear... and all of those gushy things you see in on T.V. I mean I always just thought... how hard can it be.
The first year me and Armando began our courtship, I decorated his room with hearts... yup a heart attack like no other. The seconds year, rented a helium tank and filled his room with balloons. Finally my third year after two years of disappointment (on my standards) I decided to take it down a notch and put chocolate kisses through out his room. Of course he had a trail of hearts from the front door to his room, where he found this huge sign telling him how much I loved him.I know what your thinking..... I'm crazy.... I already know, but seriously I always thought it was so easy, now that I sit back and think about it.. none of it was easy. Everything cost money..(lots) and it took me at least four hours of my day to decorate his room.
So where is all of this going? Well this year Armando asked me if we could postpone Valentine's to the end of the month. I thought about it and it worked out okay. I am recently broke and hadn't thought of what I would do for him. I told myself, not to expect anything, and honestly I was okay with it. This Valentine's Day was the best Valentine I have ever had!
No not because I didn't get anything but because I didn't expect anything. Armando, the sweetheart he is knew he had to trick me for things to actually be a surprise.
Armando took time to decorate my room on Friday with heart balloons and Hershey Kisses surrounding my floor and bed. I had a long day at work, and to walk into my room and surprised of what Armando took the time to do for me. Tears really filled my eyes, I was so thankful!This set the my mood for the rest of the weekend. The next day we had a panic dinner with my all time favorite Chocolate cake, "The great Wall of Chocolate" from PF Changes. Please be advise, this a very sinful piece of cake. Your diet will be executed, filled with thousands of calories, but know, its soooo worth it. Call me if you're going.I hope everyone Valentine's or as some like to say Single Awareness day, was great!
Enjoy life, not expecting every move of the day!
