This year, Valentine's Day happened to fall on a Saturday, which only meant my birthday was on Sunday. Well ho hum. If you know me, you know how much I hate Valentine's Day because they always suck. This year was slightly different. My parents came up on Friday and got caught up in a storm through Donner. Fortunately they took my advice and invested in some snow chains so they were able to drive through to Reno and got in around 11:40 PM. Before all that, though, we need to remember it was a Friday the 13th, so bad luck was kind of expected. I had my work all cut out for me then. I had to clean the house, do some last minute grocery shopping, dye my hair, plus I had to run by Jesse's work to bring him one of his guns and I did laundry in the morning too. It took forever to accomplish anything but by the end of the day everything did get done and my parents came in.
The next day, Valentine's Day, I made Jesse waffles for breakfast and he got his Valentine's Day present of a box of .40 ammo from Charlie and Lulu. Charlie had to wait till later in the day to open his present of a toy cell phone (since he plays with our remotes and anything with buttons and he loves it!) During the day, I went with my parents to Walmart to get wiper blades for their car since they froze to the window and broke on the drive up and then we went to Scraps Dog Co. to get Lulu's paw print in plaster. I also got her and Izzy some Valentine's Day cookies. Then we came back to the apartment for a bit. I went with my mom to my cheapie shop to cash in on my b-day discount with them. Then we came home for the night. Jesse brought me a boquet of roses, which I had to put in 2 old spaghetti jars because we don't have a vase around the house. Then I talked everyone into letting me do my presents that night for my birthday and I won!
So I got the coolest shirt from my sister. It says PUG LIFE and has a pug on it! Then, my mom got me some white converse and a tea pot, but Jesse also got me a tea pot and even though the one my mom got was pretty, the one Jesse got came with all these cool accessories and whistles when it's done. Ultimately, even though I'm a fan of design, when push comes to shove, I'm still more of a fan of function. The day ended with us eating Valentine's Day turkey (a tradition I think I just might carry over next year!)
The next day we went to breakfast for my birthday at Josef's Vienna Bakery & Cafe. Then we went home for a bit and to the mall. We walked around the mall for a little while but then had to go get my parents checked into their hotel room. After that, we dropped my dad off at the room and I went with my mom back to the apartment. We hung out there for a bit and then went to the casino for a few hours. I came home kinda late and did some stuff and went to bed.
That was the end of my birthday holiday weekend.
