When I was 7 or 8, I told my mother that my favorite flowers were tulips. She told me that tulips were "stupid looking" and I was supposed to like Carnations, because they were her favorite O_o so carnations it was. The only time anyone ever gave me flowers was when I was 17 and my boyfriend brought me carnations because my mom told him they were my favorite.
I told my friend, Jaime, about this a week or so ago. And she brought me purple tulips after my surgery! I've never seen tulips up close, and it was night time when she brought them, so they were all closed up for the night...I had to ask if they were tulips :-/
They opened up the next morning (I think they were happy to see me...their new mamma) they were anything but stupid looking. And I named them. All of them. Meet my babies:

Their names are:

Charlotte, Abigail, Juliette, Rose, Lilly, Bambi, Fay, Tabitha, Violet and Amelia

I'm thinking I might plant me some tulips in the front yard this spring! I'll need to break out my baby names book if this happens.

By the way, for those of you who were concerned about me, after reading my last post about the 10 things that could go wrong...most of them did not happen. I'm still waiting on the HIV and Hep C results, though (j/k - I probably won't be tested for those until I donate blood again. Or get married.)


  1. If you want tulips, dear Hannah, you have to plant the bulbs in the fall.....then they will 'say hello' to their new mamma in the spring! Remember that this fall.... :)

    1. awwww....nutz. Thanks for saving me the embarrassment...I can just see me now, in the front yard in the spring, everyone asking me what I'm doing. *shudder* thanks Lindy, I owe you one :-)
