my great big awwwww moment of the weekend

I will do a weekend recap in a separate post, but this was so cute and awwwwww-worthy that I felt the need to give it its own post.

You know those days at work when it just isn't your day? I've been having that kind of a month. Friday after work, my mother was going to the spa and said that if I came with her to keep her company, she would pay for the haircut which I so badly needed. Of course, I spent a good part of my time in the stylist's chair emailing TLS, who I thought was busy watching the Cubs game or something of the sort. Unbeknownst to me, he decided to apply for the title of boyfriend of the year and was looking around for flowers.
Saturday morning, I was straightening up the apartment. I opened the door to take out my trash, and imagine my surprise when lo and behold, there was a FedEx man holding a big ProFlowers box standing outside my door, about to knock. I opened the box and here is what was inside it:

There was also a card with a beautiful makes-you-cry message that I am not going to post because it is too personal for a public place and he would not like me doing so, but needless to say, the card on its own earned him major points.

After I got over the initial ooohing, aaaahing, and awwing, put the flowers in water, and text messaged KMH and GNB, I called him to thank him. I asked when he had ordered them and he said "last night when you were getting your hair cut. I wanted to send you flowers. I went with the mixed colors because it's a little bit of everything I feel for you." (More awwwwing.) I'm still awwwing and smiling over this. The picture does not do the roses justice at all.
