Valentine's Bouquet

Ok people listen up. Valentines is less than a month away. So, what's it going to be this year? Are you going to do something memorable or is it going to be the 13th and you are wondering what to do? Decide soon or the decision will be made for you.

Here's an idea for the husbands, make her a dozen origami rose buds, mount them on green pipe cleaner and present them to her on the day. Before you fold each rose bud, write an action on the paper. Make it something like "make me laugh", "tell me a story", "kiss me so I see fireworks", "do the dishes", "cook dinner" or "rub my feet". Then attach a note stating that she should open a bud a day for the next 12 days and you will fulfill what ever the rose says.

Be sure that each action is simple enough that you can do it on any given night. You could also put a number on each rose bud and have her open specific roses on specific days. Then you can have the action planned for each rose. In that way you could include things like "go with me to see [movie title]". You would then get tickets, arrange for the babysitter and everything else so you can both go see the movie.

Note guys, these roses are not simple to fold. You better give yourself some time to practice. Also, spend a little on some nice paper
.

Of course you can include the kids. They can help with folding the roses, presenting the bouquet and fulfilling the actions.
