let's see how much i can update about the past week in the next 15 minutes.
valentine's day. well, i knew jason was going to be making me dinner, but that's all i knew. so during the day tuesday i went home for a little while so he could prepare some stuff. plus i wanted to make chocolate covered strawberries and pineapple to bring over for dessert so it worked out perfectly. i finally made it back to jasons. he was all dressed up and cute. he wore suit pants, a black (kinda shiny) dress shirt, and a tie. it was adorable. he cooked a pasta dish with shrimp, asparagus, mushrooms (even though he hates them), and a garlic butter sauce. it was really good. then i told him what i brought and we ate some. then it was downstairs to his room. he made me stand in the dark laundry room part of the basement while he got stuff ready and then made me walk into his room with my eyes closed. when i finally opened them there were candles lit and two gifts awaiting me on the pillow. one was a red monkey holding a red heart that said i love you, and the other gift was a white gold diamond "o" pendant necklace. very pretty. i gave jason his gifts which included a pair of family guy boxers, a canister of cajun mix snack stuff, and a little devil gorilla stuffed animal.
then the next day. well, i had something up my sleeve. all jason knew was that we'd have to leave the house, but he had no idea what we were doing. meanwhile, the day prior and during this day i had been secretly gathering stuff of his that would be needed. i grabbed clothes, fruit snacks (incase his sugar dropped), alcohol, needles, and insulin. then we were on our way. we stopped at quiznos for a bite to eat, then stopped at my house so i could pick up the rest of the stuff that would be needed. then we were on our way. i had rented a jucuzzi suite for the night. when we arrived i told him i would be right back and i brought all the stuff in, checked in, brought the stuff to the room, and then went back to the car to get him. he was so nervous cause he had no idea what was going on. his heart was racing and everything. he had a cigarette then i led him down a long hallway, slipped the key in the door and led him into the room. i walked him over to the bed and he figured out where we were. heh. he was definitely surprised. so we sat in the jacuzzi for a while, then went to dinner at a thai place in troy (that turned out to have really good food), stopped at walmart for popcorn, shampoo, and conditioner, then headed back. relaxed some more in the hot tub and watched a little tv. had a couple drinks as well. all in all it turned out to be a very nice 3 day valentine's day adventure. i was happy. he was happy. it was all good. =)
so, the next day after checkout we stopped at mcdonalds and sat outside in the car and ate in front of his house. talked a bit...then realized it was garbage day when the huge garbage truck was behind us so we drove off. i thought of something to do. i drove to lou's pet shop (jason didn't know where we were going...haha) so we could check out the bearded dragons cause we had been talking about maybe getting one. as soon as we walked in there was a bearded dragon in a tank right in front..and the price tag said $199 for entire setup (tank, heat lamp, uv lamp, red lamp, food dish, water dish, driftwood log to sleep on, plant, food, and hollow log to crawl under) and bearded dragon. that was an incredible deal. plus the beardie was so cute she was hard to resist. she has some orange around her face and chin and down her sides. she's adorable. so we talked about it, and decided to get her. and after much deliberation, we named her talen. i'll have to take a picture of her so you guys can see what we are the proud new parents of. haha. oh yeah, she's about 18 months old, about 18-20 inches long, and a sweetie.
so yeah, that's been my week in a nutshell.
