Knock me over with a feather

It's foggy and rainy out today and I was just thinking geez it would be nice to stay inside and snuggle all day, especially since Gabe thought 5 am was morning today.  

Mike gets home from work a little late this morning but I didn't think anything of it because it's foggy out so I figure he just took his time.  Well he comes in drops his stuff I mention some emails I got and then he whispers to Gabe to wait by the door.  He goes back out in the rain, I hear the car door open and close and he comes back.  In one arm are donuts and OJ and the other is behind his back. 

He surprised me with a brand new Orchid plant.  I LOVE Orchids, they have been my favorite forever.  I used to have several plants and I'm actually pretty good at getting them to rebloom but the didn't survive several moves we made all in a short period of time.  I've been sad that I don't have any anymore and I was thrilled to get one.  He said it was Happy Mel day :D  So there was no reason just a thoughtful gift from my hubby. 

Now of course I have to make sure that Gabe doesn't decide "play" with my Orchid, or eat it or feed it to the cats.  I wonder if I have any Orchid potting mixture left?


  1. Awwwww! Happy Mel Day! That is so sweet! I'm sitting here smiling from ear to ear!

  2. You need to come visit me then as the Atlanta Botanical Gardens have a huge Orchid exhibit. It's amazing. The orchids almost don't look real. What a great DH!

  3. OH I would LOVE that. Orchids are amazing. There are so many different kinds too!

  4. OMG that is so incredibly sweet!!!!
