Happy Love Day!

So, like I mentioned in my previous post, not only is it Valentine's Day, but it's also my 5 year anniversary with Rob. Yay! As he keeps saying to me, "Cinco años!" Since it's a Tuesday, we are keeping the celebration pretty low key. At first, we weren't even going to go to dinner, but I suggested going to this little Thai place about 2 miles from our house. Rob always wants to go there. The food is delicious, and we feel bad because there are never any cars out front. We don't want them going out of business! So we're supporting them tonight.

I'm excited about giving Rob his digital camera! I want to take some photos of myself holding "I love you" signs, so they'll be a little surprise when he plays around with it. I have to give him props. Normally, he's not the greatest gift giver. He has the "guy" mentality that gifts have to be "functional." If I want something functional, I'll buy it myself. But today, I was pleasantly surprised! I had a feeling it was going to be jewelry since I know he made a trip to his step-mom's sister's jewelry store a few weeks ago. But what really stunned me was how well he knows my taste!

Check it out.

This is exactly what I would pick out for myself! I absolutely love it! In fact, I've looked at necklaces similar to this before, but I don't buy myself jewelry. I'm shocked!

In other news, my mother dragged me to get my hair done on Saturday. She took me to her Korean hair dresser. Turns out she didn't speak any English at all. The only English I heard her use was, "hi", "blowdry", and "dancing with the stars." I was a little nervous because she was probably in her late 50's, and um, not so trendy, but she did great! My mom convinced me to get some highlights and then she did this "coating" thing which is supposed to make your hair really shiny. After it was all done, I ended up with these cool coppery highlights and a pretty good cut! I feel much better.

Here's a peek.

Well, that's all for now. Hope you're all having a lovely day! Hearts to you!

I like the hair!! I am too low-maintenance to get lots of highlights. I'll let them grow out and it'll look all funny. LOL :)
