I love belated Valentines Day so much more than on-time Valentines Day.
These flowers? They were free (due to a cashier error). Even if they weren’t free, they would have only cost $10. Did you hear that? $10 teeny, tiny little dollars. I bought ice cream cones that cost almost that much while I was in Vegas.
Now I have 12 pretty flowers to look at, and one big vase to keep.
And there was a second surprise after the flowers! I have been wanting to buy The Scarlet Pimpernel for years, but I’ve been unable to find the exact copy our creepy history teacher in high school used to show us when he didn’t feel like teaching anything. I got so excited when I saw this at Costco a few weeks ago, but the price tag was enough that I knew buying it would bust our entertainment budget for several months. That Husband saw how excited I got and bought it for me as a V-Day surprise.
Now I have:
Pride & Prejudice
Victoria & Albert
and my personal favorite The Scarlet Pimpernel.
We’re going to be Pimping out tonight with some homemade ice cream. (Did you like how I did that thing with the Pimpernel and the Pimping? I thought it was cool of me. I’m usually against using the term “pimping” because of the awful connotations, but I thought I was being quite clever here.)
