Valentine's Day Surprise

This afternoon when school let out, I took the boys to a Valentine's Day party for the youngest kids on base. It was fun, and there was a kid-size bouncy house for them to play with. I ended up staying later than I'd planned so they could run around the playground with their friends. By the time we got home, it was pushing 1730.

I'd mixed up some pizza dough before leaving, and knew it was sitting in the fridge waiting for me. I was dreading facing it when I walked to see Oliver setting the table. Turns out, he'd gone to the store, picked up stuff for a stir fry, and it was ready and waiting for us to eat when we got there.

Totally the best Valentine's Day present ever! I can't remember the last time I came home from something to dinner on the table. That is typically my job, and Oliver is not at all comfortable in the kitchen. The total unexpectedness of it was the cherry on the top. I think I made out in the husband department.
