Wednesday Ramblings and Some Flowers?

So I'm sitting here at work, looking out my window waiting for the snow to destroy us. Ok, I can hardly complain, 6-10inches in BOSTON is not distruction. It's a mere inconvenience. I started to feel nostalgic and went back to my first blog post where I blogged about wanting summer and the foot of snow we got in March. Well ladies and gentlemen, I'm feeling the exact same way. I cannot wait for a business trip to Houston (HOUSTON!) next week for some sixty degree weather.

However, that is not the purpose of this blog post and I could go on forever about how much I hate winter. I'm stealing a page out of "My Husband Is Annoying" . And YES, this is very risky since the hubs does read this. ;-)

I'm reading a magazine and with Valentine's Day coming up, it talks about cheaper flower options than traditional red roses to save the hubs out there some money. I love flowers, but frankly, not roses and not red ones. I love hydrangeas and daisies etc. So they have this gourgeous vase with white tulips and I just melted. I would kill for some of those in my house right now.
So I turn to Jarrett that day and explain "Babe, IF you were planning on buying me flowers, I'd like white tulips and I'd like them delivered to work". Now there are a couple of problems here. 1) I hate that I had to ask 2) I have been asking for 5 years to have flowers delivered to work, once, just once. Vday? sure. Birthday? sure. Random day? sure. Point: I don't care when, just sometime.
This comes and goes and he laughs and says, well apparently I do need to get you flowers NOW.
Am I crazy for wanting this? It drives me nuts how much they overcharge for flowers, especially roses on V Day. But sometimes a girl just wants to have those beautiful flowers on her desk to look at and well, ahem, show off.


  1. I've never gotten flowers at work either. But, then again, I've never asked. I was always kinda hoping that he would just think of it himself...

    Also, I totally feel you about not liking red flowers or roses! I love white flowers, and really light baby pink ones - my wedding bouquet was made up of calla lilies and really light pink tulips :) It was sooo pretty!

  2. I don't think they think about it. Finally after 7 years I asked ;-) HAHHAHA we'll see..........

  3. hahah think about it this way... would you want flowers if they were because he did something WRONG???
