Flowers for Myself


I love fresh flowers. Most women do. Unfortunately, most men think flowers are a waste of a gift because they know the flowers are going to die soon. Here's what, though, men: If you get your wives and girlfriends flowers for no reason, they will love you and love you. Don't believe me? Try it.*

At any rate, I love flowers. All kinds of flowers. If I had the money, I'd have a fresh bouquet of flowers in every room of the house!

I recently decided that I'm going to budget for at least one bouquet every couple of weeks. I figure that if I spend about 15 bucks on a fresh bouquet every other week, that'll cost around $375 a year. It's really not that much. A lot of people probably waste that much money on produce going bad. Or on eating out. Or just buying junk on sale at Target. Fresh flowers, though -- I can always count on those to make me happy. Every time I see them in my kitchen, it puts a smile on my face.**


*Incidentally, I've only gotten flowers from a man twice in my life: once from a boyfriend who I guess listened when I said I liked them (how nice!) and once from a boyfriend who was about to give me bad news (lame).

**If, for some reason, you feel the need to get me a gift but have absolutely no idea what to get, then just get flowers. I'll love you forever.


Thing I'm thankful for: usable spice containers

Yes! I've been buying flowers since we moved to Kentucky. I hate the kitchen floor of our rental house, so I try to make little vignettes of pretty in other places throughout the house.

I used to buy carnations, which last 3X's longer than every other flower. I put them in my miniature vases, by the bedside, bathroom siNk and kitchen. REMEMBER! An older guest in my home in Oklahoma, asked me who put all the flowers everywhere? I responded, I did, proudly. And she said, GOOD for you! Flowers are always cheaper at target, or the grocery store and Sam's or Costco. So it may not be that much a year, especially if you buy carnations. And if you change out the water, frequently, tgey last longer. GOOD FOR YOU! Make your own happiness!
Love you, Chickadee!
