Why I like today.

Feb 14, 2013

I know I've said it before but Ronnie and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day. We're not anti-Valentine's or anything, we just don't make a big deal out of it. We would much rather spend our money on gifts and a nice dinner on our anniversary in 2 weeks and well, it's nice to show each other love every day, don't you think?

But I have to admit, there are some things I really do love about Valentine's:

-- Pink, red, hearts, sparkles, ruffles, sprinkles, candy! How can all this girlyness not make you happy?

-- I get to dress up this little girl in themed, cutesy clothes! (And one day, make Valentine's cards with her which I really am excited about.)

-- Surprises! Gifts! No, not from Ronnie but from people you may not share the love with every day. 
In this case, it's a swap with blog friends :) Corrin's Valentine's Day swap is anonymous and I can't wait to find out who sent me these goodies!! (Why yes, that's nearly 2 lbs of Sour Patch goodness. And yes, I have already opened it.)

-- Today's a good day to be mushy and cheesy and not care. And to be honest, this is the only V-day gift I need. (See? Even I'm being cheesy.)

What do you think about Valentine's Day?
(And if you say not having a man makes today crappy, remember this:
Guys are great and all but they fart. A lot. Just saying.)

love this, my husband actually surprised me with flowers today which is crazy considering I can count on one hand the amount of times he's gotten me flowers in the 8 years we've been together. Happy Valentine's day!

Your swap package looks fun! And V is adorable, as always.

I like Valentine's Day, but it's not my favorite. Working in a high school on Valentine's Day can be... an experience. :)

Fun swap stuff! Jacob and I don't do gifts and NEVER go out on Vday. It's a madhouse out there. But I do love pampering my kids with small presents and love and hearts and kisses!
