Anyways, the day started out perfectly as we went to our favourite breakfast place in Toronto aka Sunset Grill (the one we went to is located just north of Yonge and Eglinton but there is also one downtown). But yeah, so during breakfast we were supposed to exchange gifts for one another. The thing was, since I was out of a job, we decided to make Valentine's day a bit more sentimental and we decided that we had to buy gifts for each other that were $20 or less (do you know how hard this is?) and then we had to tell each other why we got them for each other. However, I had bought John a cookie cake from Ms. Fields and we had to go downtown to get it so I said his gift would be waiting later. He then replied that he'd give me mine when I gave him his. Okay, cool. But funny enough, he took something out of his bag and gave me a bunch of papers and on these papers he labelled them as "boyfriend coupons" LOL meaning I had a coupon for things like ex. a free meal paid by your boyfriend, put make up on your boyfriend, dress up your boyfriend. Aha, it was pretty sweet since he hates doing some of these things, and it didn't cost him a dime :) Very thoughtful (and this was after the roses he also bought me...which he called "extra"). Notably, I used the free meal for my breakfast haha.Next, we then went downtown to pick up the cookie cake that was supposed to be ready by 2:45. Sadly, we got there and it wasn't and it kind of ruined the surprised...but he was so happy for his cookie that I don't think he cared. So then we went upstairs at the AMC and he gave me his gift which was...A NAIL DRYER LOL. The most clever gift ever! I always do my nails and I always screw them up because I'm so impatient for them to dry and he knew that so he got a nail dryer for me! Seriously, the most creative thing ever LOL totally something I was not expecting but I'm so excited to use it!Alright so after that, we headed to his house to kill time because we were going to watch "The Vow" at 7. So went to his place, ended up sleeping and watching "King of Cars" and hurried to the movies (so much traffic)! Luckily we got there in time with good seats (minus the 4 pre-teen girls who kept screaming when Channing Tatum came on the screen) and enjoyed the movie, which was pretty good! Then after finding a free ticket to the next show (which we gave back) we then headed to Spring Rolls to end our amazing day. Anyways, we ate our dinner and recapped our day and then as we were waiting for our bill he suddenly pulled out a jewellery box. It had the sweetest message on it (which I will not disclose here) and when I opened it, it was a gold and diamond heart shaped necklace :) Honestly, I was so floored and I pretty much turned bright red. Clearly, this was like 10x over out $20 budget, but he said he didn't mind because he wanted to get me something special (yeah, kinda feel bad about the cookie cake LOL). But I put it straight on (with his fubbling fingers) and then he dropped me home.
The ending of the perfect night. Anyways, all I can say is that I would have just been content with spending some quality time with my boyfriend, but he always seems to amaze (and out-do) me every single year. He's the most amazing guy, not because of what he gets me but because of the thought he puts into each and every present. Whether that's "boyfriend coupons" or a diamond necklace. And I'm so happy to have someone who treats me as a lady :) Hope you all had an amazing V-day! Love hard xo,
