Happy Valentine's Day

Maybe you've read my other blog. It's a really good blog. I love it a lot. That blog is all about me and my old roommate Rebecca and our adventures living in our apartment in San Francisco. We haven't exactly decided what we're going to do with that blog but we do know it's much harder to maintain when we don't live down the hallway from each other. When we officially figure out what's going on over there, we'll let you know.

In the great tradition of starting amazing new blogs on Valentine's Day, I figured it a good idea to officially begin the story of Santos the Family today.

Steve is my husband. He loves plants. I should clarify...he loves "real" plants. Not "fake" plants like roses that have been genetically altered and altered and altered to look the way they do. Let me apologize now for my lack of science speak but apparently real roses only have 4 petals. Not the lovely mess of petals we're use to. All those petals are actually stamen. In fact roses disgust Steve so much that he refuses to buy them for me. I'm a lucky girl anyway though because Steve gives me non-rose type flowers at least once a month. He typically buys them from Trader Joe's and they are beautiful and look like this.


Last night when I got home from work, much to my surprise and totally against everything Steve stands for, these were sitting on our kitchen table for me.


So many stamen.

f*bomb. said...

Those photos were really explicit. I wish the new blogg wasn't so graphic, Bets. I feel dirty.

I was going to type what Jordan wrote, so now I have to think of something else to say.

(wait for it...)

Hurray for the Santos Blog!

bex said...

it is probably good that you guys started this, since i have been a little out of the loop now that you don't live down the hall.

maybe this means i need to do another blog too. le sigh . . .

Santos, you better treat my girl right. Betsy, remember, he's a tree hugging liberal, you must keep a close eye on him. And don't let him spend too much time with the future children. If you need a good baby-sitter/life-teacher for the kids you call me.

im so happy you are back, or birthed or, umm, whatever.

thanks for starting the new family.

Betsy said...

Thanks friends! I'm excited to be blogging again. And I need to correct something...apparently roses naturally have 5 petals, not 4. I knew I was going to mess that up.

Steve said...

How embarrassing that you didn't know that Rosaceae has 5 petals... gosh babe, it's like you don't listen to my daily plant lectures...

amanda said...

Mikael & Senja said...
