DH loved all his gifts.  He got a cute toy, a book and this:

Our landlord’s son used to live in this house.  They really took care of the yard and the flower beds.  We have roses, lots of trees, some lavender, a hydrangea and these:

I think they’re peonies, but I’m not 100% sure.  This is from ONE STEM.  The flowers (yes, there’s more left on the plant) are so big and heavy, that they’re just drooping on the ground.  They are just absolutely beautiful!

Awesome Surprise!

DH said he was expecting a delivery today.  So I tried to be downstairs as much as I could to watch out for FedEx or UPS.  A few minutes ago, someone knocked and I thought, “OMG!  Delivery people learned to knock before leaving stuff on the porch.  w00t!”  I opened the door and there was a lady holding a giant vase of flowers and balloons.

Me:  What’s that?

Lady:  Is this xx Your Rd?  Then these are for you!  :)

Awesome!  I started crying like a crazy person.  The flowers smell amazing.  The whole thing is just so beautiful.  Thanks, hun!
