Chocolate Hangover

So after yesterday, I am having a total chocolate hangover. It was Valentine's Day...my favorite day of the year. It is all about love and chocolate...what's not to love about that?? I could care less that it is overly commercialized. People give me chocolate and gifts, and it makes me all warm and tingly inside :)

I told my kids/parents that we were NOT having a Valentine's Day party. I would have hated to see what it was like if I said we could have party, because this is what it looked like when we were NOT having a party...


 
 
I couldn't very well get upset about it, since they brought me goodies too...
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh, and did I also mention that my cookie pusher came by....
 
 
 
Why yes, that is 5 boxes of Taglongs that you see (plus 3 other boxes). Thankfully I had enough sense to give some of those away.
 
 
The Rockstar gave me two necklaces, a new wedding band set (but they don't fit and need to be sized), a big box of chocolates, and new yellow box flip flops...

 
 
 
 
All in all, it was a great day!!!
 
 
Today we didn't have any kids. We had a teacher workday and the kids got a 4 day weekend. When we don't have kids we actually get to go out to lunch like real grown ups :) We went to a Japanese Hibatchi Grill restaurant. I didn't eat much, but what I did have was super yummy. I have just very recently (as in the last 2 weeks) eaten rice since my lapband surgery. I used to love, love, love fried rice. It really doesn't taste as good to me now as it used to, so I only had about 3 bites of it.
 
 
I called my plastic surgeon's office to check on things today. Still no news to report. She told me to call back next Thursday. I am looking at having the surgery on March 19th. It is the week before my spring break, so I will take the week off before spring break and I will get the week of spring break, giving me two full weeks for recovery. I have decided that I am doing this rather insurance pays anything or not )but I am still hoping that it will).
 
 
So happy that this is weekend is a 3 day weekend!!! No big plans, but any day that I don't have to wake up to an alarm clock is a good day for me!
 
 
That's all I got for now my little bloggy peeps....toodles :)

Holy cows- I would have been afraid to see what would have been in your pictures if you were actually having a party.
Sounds like Valentines time is like Christmas in your world. Lucky girl.
