The Day of Love

This morning when getting dressed I could not figure out if I wanted to wear a pink or red scarf in honor of Valentine's day.

I asked Luke's opinion and he was no help at all. Apparently he does not understand the art of coordinating outfits with the holidays.

I eventually decided on the pink scarf and we headed out the door to begin our day.

Yes, we are still sharing one car. It is a barrel of fun.

Can you sense the sarcasm in that statement?

I've been asking God to please teach me what it is he needs me to learn during this time because SISTER NEEDS A CAR. Please and thank you.

Anyways, today is Valentine's Day and I might be in the minority, actually I'm sure I'm in the minority but I LOVE this day. And for the record I've always loved Valentine's day. From the time I was single to the days when I had a boyfriend all the way up to the days when I was sure that same boyfriend was never going to propose, then when he finally did propose I loved valentine's day during the newlywed days and now I love it today with my baby-daddy. I just love this day.

I think it is such a sweet and fun day and a great day to spread the love.

And by love I of course mean chocolate and various forms of candy.

Love is my favorite.

Even though I love this day very much we never go all crazy. We usually keep all birthdays, anniversaries, and valentine's days pretty simple and low key.

And due to the fact that baby boy is coming next month we decided to keep it really low key this year to save a little of that green mulah.

So after work we went to my very favorite restaurant. When we got there the boy behind the hostess stand informed me that our wait would be 105 minutes.

To which I said "105 MINUTES, WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!?!"

I really said that, and he laughed and explained that it was an hour and 30 minutes. Which Luke later informed me it was not an hour and 30 minutes and the kid couldn't do math. I do think it's funny that the boy laughed at me when I yelled at him. You can kind of do whatever you want when you're pregnant and people will excuse you because your pregnant.

Including putting a lamp shade on your head in a public restroom.

So after waiting for what seemed like a good forever we finally sat down and enjoyed a little Valentine's dinner.

We talked about many things, but mainly about how much our life is about to change, for the better. It seems like all conversations these days somehow end up going back to little Eli and how excited we are to meet him.

Everyday I am so thankful for my husband. I'm not typically a person who shares my emotions publicly. I mean sure, I'll give you the visual of me squatting over a toilet but I clam up when it comes to talking about how much I love my husband.

I'm just interesting that way.

I'm not sure why God chose to bless me with Luke as my husband. But he did and I am thankful.

We are two very, very different human beings, but somehow, we fit together perfectly. He encourages me, laughs with me, laughs at me, gets mad when I sit on my computer when we are watching TV together, cooks for me, prays for me, leaves his dishes out for me to put in the dishwasher, reads to me when I ask him to, sings to me, sings too loudly to annoy me, provides a listening ear when I need to vent, guides me when I worry, plays card games with me even though he hates them, watches Real Housewives with me, searches the house for my Tum's at 1:00 in the morning when heartburn is in full attack, and just loves me for who I am.

Including dating we have been together for almost 8 years, and this year we will be adding our son to our family. I still don't think I have completely wrapped my mind around the fact taht we will soon have a child. It is so crazy to me. And even though I totally joke about Eli inheriting Luke's crazy hair, I am so hoping that Eli looks just like Luke. A cute little Indian baby boy!

So happy valentine's day to my sweet husband, you are my very favorite husband ever.

And just for fun on this day of love some old pics of me and Luke, back when he still wasn't sure if he was going to marry me and I was waiting for him to get on bended knee every single day:



Basically those pictures are just proof that we've always been a little weird and nerdy.

And perhaps this picture is a glimpse into what is to come next month. I fully expect Luke to be by my side holding my hand like that through the entire labor process:

Happy Valentine's Day!
