My darling sweetie gave me a box of WW ice cream candy bars for Valentine's Day :) What a darling...he knows how much I've been struggling lately, and he knows how much I love a good treat. He also gave me an adorable heart shaped piggy bank with America's classic sweeties smooching on the front (Micky and Minnie). I'm thinking it's all been presented, and I'm cuddled on the couch browsing through his new tree catalog that he'd picked up earlier that day....thinking about Spring in the midst of the winter that has never ended! Then he comes in with this ENORMOUS Valentine. I laughed, and said how awesome that is...I have always wanted one of those-just for fun. It made me smile :) Back to my trees, and the dog comes jingling in. She has a small gift bag hanging from her collar.
OMG...that is the cutest thing ever! "Puppy has a Valentine for you too," he says as he takes it off her collar. Inside is a silver wrapped smallish box with a red bow. Inside the box was the diamond engagement ring we picked out together last May!
Ok--so this has nothing to do with my weight loss journey--directly anyway....but after loving this man for 9 1/2 years...this is the most exciting thing in my life right now, and will be cause for much celebration...which will undoubtedly include lots of trigger foods for me. I must remember to ask God everyday to keep me strong and to help me to avoid over-indulging.
PS--no idea when it will take place...I have a daughter graduating this Spring from high school and a son getting married right before Christmas, so it won't be this year :)
