Ryan received surprises such as a "heart attack" in his car, a little book of Reasons I Love You, a snack bag with study treats (he is stressing about his upcoming Board exam), a batch of delicious homemade cinnamon rolls, a silky nightgown (don't worry--that was for me to wear, not him), and his favorite dinner, chicken cordon bleu.

You may be wondering how Noah is holding onto the stems of a bunch of thorny roses--well, if you look closely, you may notice that these beauties are artificial. Men are funny. I'm not going to say anything more than that.

My Cupid is very good at coming up with fun and random games for me to play each year. This year, I had to compete in "The Race of Love." When I walked into our bedroom, I saw hearts taped all over the walls and furniture with reasons why I am loved written on them. My Cupid had left detailed instructions for me to compete in the game: I had to run around the room and grab each heart, shout the reason that I am loved loudly, and stick the heart to my body. I had to gather all the hearts in two minutes or less. I managed to do it because I am pretty athletic like that.
Noah didn't have a full week of Cupid surprises (we will start doing that for him next year--I think he will be just the right age to be super pumped about it), but Cupid did stop by his crib and leave him a little something on Valentine's Eve.
