he likes to kiss me

Little did I know, that my Friday post was a big part his love day surprise for me. I had no idea that he was gonna make it all about kisses, yet that is what I blogged about. We are definitely on the same page. So Sunday morning, as I was getting ready for church, True and Brave marched in holding a bunch of flowers from their Papi to me.


Then, Benny came in and handed me a box with a note...
start of love day
In the box, was a dress that he picked out himself. It is now my favorite dress.

Soon after putting the dress on, Ben gave this note...
a statistic
Which was followed by this note...
the first kiss
And of course a peck on the lips. I was finally starting to get the theme of the day. Then it clicked, tulips = two lips.

All day long, in all different places, I was given a note followed by the appropriate kiss, so there were kisses...
some kisses

And more kisses...
more kisses

And even more kisses...
even more kisses

Plus more kisses...
some more kisses

And more kisses...
a lot more kisses

There was just kisses galore...
a whole lot of kisses
I never knew there were so many different ways to kiss, but oh boy, I have opened my eyes to a whole new world of kissing.

I loved each and every kiss. Each and every single one was special and fun. Though, I do have my favorites. One of which is the fireworks, which you both kiss with pop rocks in your mouth and boy does it really feel and sound like fireworks. Amazing. Or the altoid, in which an altoid was transferred from his mouth to mine and it was such a fresh and minty kiss. Another fun kiss was the sip and trickle, that one made me tingle. I could go on and on about my favorites, but that would take all night as there were lots to choose from as there were 35 different kisses in all!

Here is a nice little list of all the kisses:
the fairytale
the spiderman
the altoid
the mini vac
the doggy
the wall
the cheek
the smacker
the Italian
the tiger
the tongue war
the neck
the forehead
the sailor
the soul
the butterfly
the around-the-world
the lip-o-suction
the peck
the sip and the trickle
the hummingbird
the chin
the chocolate
the virtual
the fireworks
the shoulder
the take my breath away
the lip
the nibble
the hand
the flutter
the whisper
the full monty
the spelling bee
the Eskimo

And here are just a few that we caught on one of my many cameras that we had with us yesterday.

Kissing Ben has always been one of my most favorite pastimes, but now we get to take it to a whole other level. Tonight when he came home from work, I requested the around the world, and the around the world is what I got. He even told me that he saved a few kisses and that I will get them when I least expect it. I love my Benny a whole lot!

My goal: To have spent way more than 2 weeks of kissing Ben in my lifetime.
