I made this for my husband for Valentine's Day.  Basically it's a redux because

1) our printer is broken so I had to trace all these pictures off the internet and color them and whatnot so it was taking waaaaay longer than I planned so 52 images wasn't going to be feasible

2) I had to make the images big enough to trace and still get the detail but then they were too big to fit on the cards

So, here's the cover:

And here are some of the individual pages.

It says "When Sebastian asked if he could be a ninja when he grows up, you told him 'yes'". Sebastian is our 5 year old son.  I just thought that was sweet and encouraging. You know, a 'you can be whatever you want' kind of sentiment.

For this one, I glued one of our used and unfortunately, losing, lottery tickets down to the neon green card stock. It says "You fake spend our nonexistent lottery winnings with me". We do that a lot. We talk about what kind of house we'd buy, who else we'd buy houses for, whether or not we should get a hybrid car or wait and see if they come out with something more advanced and awesome, how we'd invest our winnings, etc. We get pretty detailed, heeehee.

And it's true!! My husband has never smelled bad for as long as I've known him/been married to him. Plus, his armpit hair is always really dry and poofy, never sweaty. This is all probably TMI, but oh well.

This one says "Even though I'm a really poor sport and act like an asshole, you still play Scrabble with me". I'm kind of the worst sportsman ever. When I'm winning, I'm all "YOU SUCK" and "IN YOUR FACE" and when I'm losing, I'm like "I'm just gonna quit cause there's no way I can catch up" and "hey, that's not a word--I'm gonna look it up" and that kind of thing.

This one is pretty self-explanatory, I guess. 

These next two are tied for my almost favorite.

And this one is definitely my favorite:

HAHAHA!!  Seriously, ladies, though, you feel me on that, right? 

I laminated all the pages and the cover and then did some hole-punching and put it all together with binder rings.  My husband loved it.  He said it was very sweet and also a peek into the very random nature of my thought processes.  Comments and criticisms welcome, as always!

"LOL" just doesn't do this post justice....I was laaaaaaaughing (voice going up a few octaves) so hard that my boyfriend ambled in to investigate, and then he started laughing too.

Happy V Day!

Ooops!!  I don't know what happened with the pictures.  They worked yesterday, but they weren't showing for me either just now.  I think I fixed them though!
