Best Valentine's Day Gift? A Hidden Blade, Of Course!

Hey everyone!

Happy (late) Valentine's Day! 

I haven't been around very much again, and I'm sorry for that. I've been keeping myself busy lately with Rune Factory 4. (Which, by the way, you should own if you have a 3DS, because it is amazing.)

There are so many interesting video games coming out, that I'm going to have to make an effort to visit my blog and other blogs this year I think. Between Thief, Dying Light, Titanfall, Elder Scrolls Online, Dark Souls, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Evolve, Weapon Shop de Omasse, Super Smash Bros. 3D, Disney Magical World- Okay, I'm just going to stop there or this list will go on for a while. Anyway, between all those games, my other hobbies, like blogging for instance, might suffer a little. But I'll do my best to keep in touch with you all on here.

(Hopefully better than I did this month, anyway.)

Anyway, as the title states, I did indeed get a Valentine's Gift this year that was a little different than normal. Technically it was sort of a Christmas gift too, but I got it on Valentine's Day, so I'm calling it my Valentine's Day gift! (I got my favorite flowers too, but more on that later.)

So this year for Valentine's Day, I got this:

An Assassin's Creed IV hidden blade! I saw it at Gamestop forever ago and mentioned to the boyfriend that I really wanted one. I had no idea he would actually buy one for me though! I was, obviously, incredibly happy to receive this.

This is the top of the hidden blade. And no, it's not very comfortable, haha. But I feel awesome wearing it, so the stiffness is just something I'll have to get used to.

And the underside, with the blade extended. (please forgive the mess. When I go to my boyfriend's, I tend to just throw my things on his bed and make a mess of his room...)

The blade is plastic, so don't worry. Even though I'm incredibly clumsy, I don't see myself ever managing to get hurt by this thing. Unless I go completely insane and point it at my eye. Which I'm at least 99% certain will never happen.

You can see my flowers in the background of this picture. Stargazer lilies, my absolute favorite. Unfortunately, most never bloomed. Me and the boyfriend have debated why this is. Our conclusion was that it was just too darn cold and dark in his room for them to survive. Poor flowers.

And now, for a cute bonus picture!

My puppy thinks he is a little person sometimes. Of course, this was right before I went to bed, so I felt terrible having to move him out of the way when he looked so comfy. He didn't seem to mind though, since this generally happens every night with us.

March is just around the corner (and that means spring is too!) and I'm so glad for it. It rained today, instead of snowed, although I think it's suppose to snow later tonight. It was so nice hearing rain and thunder again, I missed it. I think the puppies forgot what rain sounded like, because when it started down-pouring, they both looked very freaked out. Poor Zoey ran to my side and curled up under my arm, even.

March is going to be hectic/expensive though too. A few different games are on my wishlist for that month, and the boyfriend's birthday is on the first of March, and then our anniversary is on the 30th of March. I already know what I'll be getting him for his birthday, which I'll show all of you guys soon too, but I have no idea what to get/make for the celebration of our four years together.

Ideas would be appreciated. I like making homemade things, but I've already made him little things like a fairy tale book, list of why I love him, a scrapbook of us, a video game, A-Z of our relationship, and things like that. Any other ideas would be super awesome if you creative ladies (and lads) have any!

So, have you ever gotten an unexpected Valentine's Day gift?

    Animals actually DO think that they are humans and often behave like that too. (Actually animals don't know the difference between you & them so a pet thinks that you are same species. DJ does too ;))

  5. Aw, the flowers are so pretty, even if they didn't bloom. And I think last year I got my most unexpected gift. My friend Cory sent me a bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries. I didn't even know he had my address, so it was a big surprise. My room mate went behind my back and gave my address to him XP This year Devon surprised me with some pretty flowers. And the obligatory chocolate. Glad you got some good gifts you enjoy :)

  6. Your boyfriend definitely gets +10 charisma for thinking outside the box. Very cool.

  7. Etsy has really good gift ideas. I buy stuff from there a lot.

  8. You're lucky to have such a great boyfriend~!

  9. I need that so badly!! I'm hoping to cosplay as this as 1) It would be freaking awesome and 2) It's one of the cheaper outfits ! Haha, so many characters I never know which to chose! Next time maybe Daenerys or Black Widow...who knows! You're very luck to have such a great guy. Plus who doesn't love flowers! Love your blog xxx
