Happy Lover's Day!
Yesterday, I drove Rusty and myself to Wal-Mart for me to get some socks. When we got home, I reached in the floorboard for the bag, and pulled up two. "What's this?" I asked. Rusty replies, "Don't look in there!" Too late. I could already tell it was a card! That is the only thing I ask for on any holiday. The written word.
This morning, I get into my car, put it in reverse and that same Wal-Mart bag with my CARD in it catches my eye. I just laugh! I love how today isn't any big deal to us! It was, however, a huge deal to the 130 9th graders I taught. I saw more stuffed bears and candy hearts than ever!
I did get my card. His beautiful writing still melts my heart. For a jock, he sure has a way with words. He got a card, too. I also made him a little something.
I'm feeling a little tutorial...
How To: Dry Erase Love Letter
Go in Word, and type up a love letter. Erase a few words here and there, and play around with the formatting and fonts. Print out and put in a frame. Velcro attach a dry erase marker to the back. Fill in the blanks with a sweet/funny/sexy/sarcastic/crazy message. Place where the other will find it. Here are the some pictures of mine:
When he came in, I had it waiting beside his plate of home-made enchiladas (I know - fancy, right?!). His reaction: "That is a really cool idea." SCORE! Knowing us, the sweet message will last through today, and we will start trying to outdo each other with funny/outrageous fill-in-the-blanks! But we both know that I am the funnier one...
How did you spend your Valentine's Day?
