I bought a can of cashews with a large label on the front that says, "Cashews". I look on the back label and read: Allergy Warning: Contains Cashews. Phew! Glad I read the warning, had no clue what was in this can!!!

[QUOTE=Christmas-A-Holic;502759]You will think I am crazy but Wayne sent me a dozen roses one time for Valentines Day, I loved them but told him not to spend that kind of money again! Yikes!!! I wasn't mean about it, not to worry, it was very sweet of him and I enjoyed it but I guess I kept thinking of other cool things to spend that kind of money. Lol! I am just not much of a "material girl" and I'm frugal. I like to spend money on things I can use or on things we can do together. (That's just me!)

For all you other guys out there, not knocking the florist business, if your sweetie likes flowers go out and get them!!! MerryMistletoe says get them NOW!!! /QUOTE]

oh girl I am the same way. people will come in, ask about flowers, how much, then do a double take. I always tell them, "Hey, that's why i only work here cause i sure can't afford them!!! i am just like you, i would rather have the $ or something i could really use. my hubby got me some roses when we were dating & then when our kids were born & i loved them...but i didn't work in a flower shop back then either! lol

I put the date on the back of it so I can remember when he made it when I bring it out to display every year. I am getting a large collection of hand made goodies from the kids. Our hallways is full of art work they have hung on the walls.
that is so pretty. how thoughtful of your little man to give you this. i know you'll treasure it for years to come.

I went in and worked a half shift this morning, I left just after 11 to be off the road by noon. The snow was light then, but now it is really coming down, and the worst is yet to come. They are saying 2-3 inches an hour at some points tonight. We are all home safe, and probably not going out again until Sunday. I will probably be popping in often throughout the day, not much more to do but watch the snow accumulate.

ttyl
so glad to hear y'all are all home safe & sound. thinking & praying for y'all to keep power & water!

It's very rare I ever buy soda but when I do I tell them no ice. The drinks always come out cold anyway.

How much are a dozen roses these days? I use to pay $49.99 a dozen at the florist near my ex's apartment. She loved white roses but managed to kill them in a week. So then I had to buy her more. It went that way for 5 years.
