milleniumgypsy: (Hiddleston- thoughtful face)
So I didn't get to post about Valentines Day on the day, Scottie and I unfortunetly didn't feel well last night so we had a pretty quiet night. I've been really sick today, which is less than fun. I hope that I feel better tomorrow!
But the fact that I feel super crummy is not the reason I'm here! Scottie being awesome is, and other fun Valentines things. xD

So we went to the library on the day before Valentines, and we found some fun displays. Mystery dates with books!
Valentines at my local library

The books were wrapped up in paper and ribbon, with little plot details on the cover. Scottie picked one out! I was thinking about picking one up, but I have so many comics that I'm reading right now! Also I listen to audiobooks all day at work so I'm less inclined to read other books at home.
Here's what he picked up!
The book my hubby picked
His "mystery date" was Thunderhead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. xD

We also went to the store to pick up groceries. We saw these cupcakes and thought they might be candidates for cakewrecks.
Silly cupcakes at the store
We thought they were funny because the look more like butts than hearts, because of the way the frosting is laid out. The center isn't smooth. ehehehe, we are 5 and easily amused.

This is what Scottie surprised me with on Valentines morning!
Homemade chocolates Scottie surprised me with for Valentines!
Those are homemade kit-kat bars, and little chocolate hearts that he made. <3 He is such a sweetie! They are so good too! :D He posted how he made them at his journal here if you'd like to know how to make them!

I'm making him a comic, though I didn't quite finish it yet. Mostly because of the illness that I'm feeling atm.
I also finished painting the bluebird ornament that I made him, I need to take a picture of that now. :3 I also woke Scottie up by singing him "Your Song" from Moulin Rougue. I do have a good singing voice, but I tend to be shy so he likes when I make the effort to sing for him. n_n'

This is not how brave I am with the singing~

Also, today we saw that there was new Borderlands 2 DLC, the Valentines headhunter pack Mad Moxxi and the Wedding Day Massacre! I saw the name and I was like IT'S THE RED WEDDDING EHEHEHE~ Scottie hasn't read Game of Thrones yet, but I am currently just about to the Red Wedding in the books right now. So I was especially amused. xD
The headhunter packs are only $3, and we still had just over $3 left on our PSN account, so we picked that up right away! We played through that today, which was exciting. Since I've been sick all day today there wasn't that much that I could do. Games work though!

I've seen displays like that set up in book stores - with the sign that says "don't judge a book by it's cover" .. I'm always curious to know what books they are - but I would have to buy them - it's cool that the library does it.

Oh, I'd never seen them at the book store before! I wouldn't do it there because I'd be afraid I wouldn't like the book. I think the library makes much more sense, the worst case there is you just bring it back if you don't like it!

Ahahah the cupcakes are great. Glad you had a good day!

Oh and the library books are pretty neat that they do that.

ehehehe, I'm glad that we're not the only ones amused by those cupcakes! xD

I thought that was a really neat idea with the books! I'm glad Scottie gave one a try. :3

Did he end up liking it? or has he not delved into it yet?

I tried getting into it, but I felt it was poorly written. Bad enough that after five chapters I decided not to invest any more time in it.

Aw that stinks. I never give up on a book no matter how bad it is. Sometimes it takes me months.

Wow, homemade kit kats? Scottie is a sweetie!

Date: 2014-02-17 09:31 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
He is! <3 :D

If you're interested in making them, I editted this entry to include a link to his journal entry about making them (he's tanvan). :3

I was going to try and do a picture entry of making them (we made more yesterday) but the process doesn't really go with it very well because there really isn't time. n_n'

I hope that you feel better soon! :D

OMG THOSE HEARTS LOL. They're certainly unique :P

Did you say homemade kit kats?! Pass the recipe on over!

Date: 2014-02-17 09:36 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
I hope I feel better soon too, thank you! :3

ehehehe, I'm glad we're not the only ones who were amused by them! I didn't post them, but the case next to the ones I posted actually had the same hearts in orange and purple! I'm even more confused by those. lol

Scottie saw that someone had requested a recipe of the kit-kats, so he made an entry on his journal about how he made them! I editted my entry to include a link (he's tanvan). Including my recipe on how to make them which was my response to him when he said that, which was:
1. Have awesome cutie
2. ????
3. Eat chocolate!

OMG lol, those orange and purple ones must have looked even stranger!

Thanks! I will have to make some. I miss kit kats lol.

Aw, that's cute! :D

Awesome! I love the mystery book idea! :)

I thought it was really neat! :D

Wow, that idea with the books is nice :O! Though I wouldn't buy because I'd feel sad if I didn't like the book afterwards xD.

Aww that's so sweet from both of you *-*.

I thought it was pretty neat, though I wouldn't be able to do it at a bookstore because I'd be afraid I wouldn't like the book in the end! But the library is a good place for it, the worst case would just be trying out the book and just returning it if I didn't like it. :3

Aw, thank you! :3
