A Smokin' Hot Valentine's Day

My husband is the best. He has never, ever forgotten a birthday, holiday or anniversary and I don't even remind him. He's just good that way.

Because he usually plans the dates, I try to plan something extra special for Valentine's Day. I've planned lobster dinners for two (served in the bedroom), nights away, you know, the usual.

Once, way, way back in the day I wrapped myself up like a present. We must have been broke that year.

This year I planned a trip to The Jazz Kitchen a place we've never been but we like jazz and the menu looked good.

I spent 5 hours getting ready. I had hair, nails, face all done by someone other than me (or my daughters). Oh, and I bought a new dress. My kids didn't recognize me! I guess I turned out o.k. because my husband said I was smokin' HOT!

He wasn't joking either. At 2:30 a.m. I woke up with a raging fever and a throat that felt like I had swallowed ground glass.

Dx: streptococcal pharyngitis

What a difference a day makes. I don't look one bit smokin' hot anymore but he's still the best. Pudding cups and antibiotics brought by loving hands are romantic too.


  1. What a romantic fun Valentines day! I hope you feel better soon!
    I need to call you soon and send you a thank you card for the sending Bennett an adorable outfit!!!
    You need to post a pic of yourself all dressed up and smokin hot!!

  2. You are truly blessed tina with a thoughtful husband. :) Treasure that because most are not that way, and you probably know that too. I am so very sorry to hear you are so sick! Ick! Strep is awful! My dad just got that too so we have been praying for him. I'll add you to the prayers, with hopes you will be better asap.

    God bless,


share some love...
