So the lovely folks at The Bouqs Company asked if I would like to write another post for them, and like last time, included codes for two of their glorious sustainably and volcano-grown bouquets as part of the deal. Unlike last time, however, I did not order the flowers for myself.
Okay, that sentence makes it sound used my good fortune to spoil my mom or my sisters or surprise one of my friends. Which would have really nice of me! They probably would have really appreciated that! Had I done that. Which I did not.
No, this time I simply forwarded the codes to my husband, like OH HEY LOOKIT COUGH HINT HINT WHEEZE. Happy early Mother's Day. Or happy random Tuesday. Your call, honey.
Now Jason is a wonderful husband who loves to send gifts and little surprises, and who definitely spoils me and the boys (and now Beau, who already owns more toys and treats than most newborn babies). And oftentimes those impulses make it hard for him to follow basic instructions, so saying "go to Target for paper towels and a roll of wrapping paper and THAT'S IT' means he is most definitely going to come back with toys and candy for the kids, a cute PJ set and a dress for me and probably not the wrapping paper.
So while at Bouqs.com with his free codes in hand, when he saw that he could upgrade to the next size up for only $10 each, he was like I GOTS $10 and proceeded to send me two of the most gigantically bonkers bouquets I have ever received in my life.
So, so many of my favorite yellow and orange roses; so many that I didn't even have a big enough vase.
I know. TWO SEPARATE VASES OF ROSES. Life is so hard.
And more sunflowers than should be considered decent.
I couldn't even get my hand all the way around them.
He also included a note to me that is completely unfit for Internet consumption. Even Lego Poe Dameron was a little shocked by it.
Once the roses opened up, I split them up even more, and ended up with enough colorful little arrangements to scatter throughout the house.
(This is most of them almost a full week after delivery. Hearty little suckers.)
(And yes, that one vase IS actually an empty beer growler. Because we're super classy and also out of beer.)
The sunflowers traveled around with me. I took them down to the office while I worked, carried them outside while we relaxed on the deck, put them on the dining room table at dinner, whatever. They were so cheerful to look at, and also TWICE THE SIZE OF MY HEAD.
I love sunflowers (more relationship TMI but "Sun" is one of Jason's pet nicknames for me, hence this particular bouquet choice), but always have the worst luck getting them to last more than a couple days. These stayed at peak full bloom for over two weeks.
...which means I will require new bouquets in time for Mother's Day. Better get on that, Jason.
