Match. Point. Win.

So for those of you who are curious, Girlfriend's birthday week is this week and as you all know she went WAY above and WAY beyond which meant that I had some serious Adidas to fill (metaphorically speaking) sooooo, here is what I came up with. I gave her a big box today with instructions to open it when she got home. Inside the box there are five envelopes, each labeled for a certain day of the week. Each day she gets a message, a puzzle piece that when put together make a big heart (each piece is a different color of the rainbow...you know to make it extra gay...with each piece having a word to say, "I hope you had a great week", and a gift-each one builds on the previous day:

Sunday: Instructions and a squishy note in her birthday card
Monday: Mix tape to play on the way to work
Tuesday: Coffee mug that is green on the inside-her favorite color (you can never have too many coffee mugs)
Wednesday: A while ago she gave me a flower when she came to visit. I took a picture of the flower and super-imposed a poem I wrote for her on top of it and put it all together in a picture frame
Thursday: Her actual birthday...flowers delivered
Friday: New saxophone mouthpiece to replace her old one, and tickets to see the new Wolverine movie (she's an HUGE X-men fan)
Saturday: (She'll wake up with Saturday's card next to her while I am downstairs cooking) Breakfast in bed before she has to leave to go to see her grandparents

So in my (not so) humble opinion: Match. Point. Win.

Your opinion?
