Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get

Busy, busy day. Woke up, had back to back classes, and then worked until 3:30. Then dinner at 5:30 and FHE at 7:00. I think it's about homework time. Yuck. But first I get to spend 15 glorious minutes blogging. I am so thankful that I have an excuse to make blogging a priority. I like writing about my day.

I have nothing to say about my classes today. They were fairly boring. Work on the other hand was super crazy. Everyone and their brother are getting Valentine's Day packages. The mail kept coming and coming. The mail room was overflowing. It was a bit ridiculous, but it helped the work day pass super fast. Best part? In the midst of the mountains of packages was a package just for me :)

We were super busy, so I didn't think much of my package. I put it by my bag and went on working. Little did I know that that package would be the best package ever. When I got home I immediately opened it. Guess what I found? Chocolates from my daddy! I wanted Valentine's chocolates so much!!! I was sad because I thought this would be the first year of my life to go chocolate-less, but no, Dad did not let that happen. He also included a beautiful, sappy card. It's the best. I love it. Mom added in some delicious peppermint marshmallow bits and one of my all time favorite books: You Are Special. The book was on my list of books needed before I have kids, so I'm not quite sure if Mom was trying to tell me she wants more grandbabies or what, but she's just going to have to wait ;)

My package really did make my day. It was absolutely perfect. I think my friends are probably already annoyed at me for going on and on about how much I love my package, but I just can't help it! Thank you mom and dad.

Haha, funny story: so when I got my package I posted a facebook status about how this is already the best Valentine's Day ever. Everyone thought it was because of some silly boy. Little do they know, my only Valentine is my dad. Anyway, people keep commenting on my status and texting me to get the inside scoop. I was about to comment on my status and explain that the status was about the package from my parents, but then Caroline stopped me. She decided it would be much more fun if I just put a smiley face and didn't explain. At least not until after Valentine's day is over. We think we're clever and funny. But I figure if you care enough to read my blog, you deserve to know the truth.

Dinner tonight was great. I was super hungry, so the food tasted extra yummy. I wanted to get some of the special chocolate week "chocolate soup" for dessert, but it was all gone :( I am not good at making decisions, so since Plan A for dessert was ruined I just got a tray full of different desserts. Everyone at the table laughed when I came back with 5 different sweets. But it was so good!

FHE tonight was supposed to be playing in the snow, but it all melted throughout the day. To be honest, I'm kinda glad because I don't really like to be outside when it's cold. Instead we made cookies and decorated them. Much more fun. Then a certain boy gave me flowers to give to a certain girl tomorrow. I'm supposed to be keeping it a secret, but all will be revealed tomorrow.

Today was a beautiful day. I love my life. I am thankful I am me. I am thankful for my family. And I'm thankful for all the people in my life.

It's true, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get, but you know it will always turn out wonderful because hey, it's chocolate.
