One thing I've often wondered is why I don't just give up and buy my own damn flowers. Seems when my husband and I were dating, I would get flowers for Valentine's Day, my birthday, dating anniversaries and sometimes for no reason at all.
Of course, I bought into the whole "what a thoughtful guy.. drool, drool, drool" and loved getting the "evil eye" from my married co-workers who were lucky to manage a phone call from their own husbands. Not me though, I had this loving, wonderful and thoughtful man in my life who made me feel like a million bucks.
That was "then".
This is "now" after 5 years of marriage.
Last time I received flowers from him? March 2009 on my birthday AFTER my mum showed up with a gorgeous bouquet for me. Hubby came home for lunch, saw my mum there, the colorful bouquet on the table and turned on his heel and right to the nearest flower shop. Of course, being as competitive as he is, he had to buy TWO bouquets.
Not a single flower, bud or even a stray leaf has found it's way into this house via the hubs since. So the other day I spied a display of beautiful cut flowers at one of our local shops and treated myself. It's been a long Winter and wet Spring so I needed to bring a little Summer inside but most of all, I wanted to make a point.
Hubby came home from work, spied the flowers and didn't say a word. Wonder if he'll get the hint? If he's like most men, probably not.
So tell me, when is the last time your husband or significant other brought you flowers and how often do you receive them? And don't be shy, brag him up if he deserves it!
