"Mom, I'm probably going over to (girlfriend)'s house right after class, and it's our first anniversary - where can I get some flowers (at 6:45 pm)?" If you're like me, you're probably wondering how he could POSSIBLY have left it until 15 minutes before he was supposed to be over at her house, right? But then, we are talking about a male, here.
"No worries, Trader Joe's has decent, fresh flowers that won't cost you too much. I need to go over there to get some fish for dinner (it being Ash Wednesday and all) anyway, I'll just pick some flowers up for you while I'm there. Bouquet or centerpiece arrangement?"
"Centerpiece style, roses if you can. Thanks, Mom!!! : D"
Well, they had small roses wrapped up with other flowers, so I picked up another mixed bouquet and brought them home.
|Gotta love Trader Joe's!|
|Love these, but wish my hubby would stop cutting them back so far. I always need more!|
45 minutes later:
|Voila! First Anniversary arrangement!|
Some of the flowers got a little washed out in this shot, so here are some close-ups (because you never get tired of looking at flowers, right?):
|Had to add the freesia - it was a little yellow for this bouquet but smelled so divine!|
