Me holding Elizabeth Saunders

Things I did today:
1) Bought Dan a birthday present and card
2) Bought a bikini at Target (for less than $30)
3) Bought Dan a Valentine
4) Realized why I never have any money (see first three items)
5) Added more sites to my wedding links page
6) Posted a picture of me holding Elizabeth Saunders on December 26 (see above)

It really wasn't very thoughtful of Dan to his future wife to be born around Valentine's Day, now was it?
 
I feel really guilty right now. Lucky and guilty.
 
I didn't mean to imply that you are the reason I have no money, Dan! I bought the bikini for myself (mostly). I just meant that I spend too much. Having your birthday right before Valentine's Day works out great. Especially when it comes to dinner reservations. Don't feel guilty. I love you and I love shopping for you!
 
You don't take Dan out for dinner twice, once for V-Day and once for his B-Day? Or, maybe you eat twice as much at one event? Actually, I feel a little sympathy for Dan. See, one of the nice things about your birthday, unlike Xmas, or other holidays, is that it's supposed to be the one day where you don't have to worry about getting other people things. Now, I don't mean to imply that I, or Dan, don't enjoy getting other people gifts, just that not having the pressure of getting the gift is nice. But for me, my brother's birthday is the same as mine, so I never get a breather, much like Dan, who, being the thoughtful and studly boyfriend/fiance/male escort that he is, always is gifting near his B-Day as well.
 
Just to set the record straight, I bought Dan a birthday present and I am taking him out to dinner for his birthday. We don't have plans for Valentine's Day yet, but we will probably be taking each other out that night. We don't usually give gifts, but we did jointly purchase a box of Godiva chocolates for the occasion.

The reason I made the dinner reservation for his birthday rather than Valentine's Day is tha tRuth's Chris Steakhouse was booked for the 14th. Does that make sense?

 
I was just giving you a hard time - you don't need to defend your plans! Dan's lucky to have you!
