I’m about to put my hair in a ponytail so I can go buy my Valentine’s gift from my husband. He’s already told me what he’s getting me but the store closes before he gets home so I’m off to get it myself. I told him I’d bought myself some nice shoes on sale and they could count. (When I bought them, I decided I could wear them for Valentine’s Day thus giving me justification for purchasing them. And they are Via Spiga for under $40. Via Spiga shoes are generally $150-$300. They’re strappy dress shoes completely unrealistic to wear in the 6 inches of snow we have but when I saw them for under $40 and in my size with free shipping, I knew it was a sign to purchase them and wear them the first chance I get. Due to the horrible winter everyone is having, this is looking like it will occur sometime in July.)
But my husband had different ideas.
We’ve been having a cold winter. Last week, most nights were below -30. For some reason, our bedroom is not very warm. So I’ve been compensating.
I wear a hooded fleece, long john sweats, and socks to sleep in. I also wrap up in a blanket before I get under the covers. I sleep incredibly warm. AND My sweats, fleece AND blanket match. I’m incredibly stylin’.
So my husband came home last night and declared we were getting a fireplace for our bedroom and it would be my Valentine’s Day gift. We went to the fireplace store and it was closed. Lowe’s selection was replaced with vegetable seeds so I’m heading back today. It’s going to be a bit of a process because I have to figure out if we’re going to tear a hole in the wall for gas or just plug in an electric one. I’m hedging toward electric, because if this is what I wear when the wall is complete, you can’t imagine what I’ll be wearing if there is a hole in the wall.
It won’t be Via Spiga sandals, that’s for sure.
