Hey! So just in case the explosion of pink and red EVERYTHING that happened to hit the shelves of every store in the world like 3 days after Christmas didn’t tip you off, Valentines Day is coming!!!
Ok, running is to much work. Never mind.
We’re not really big Valentines Day celebrators. I mean, we use to be…back when we were younger and the only way to tell if someone REALLY loved you was to wait until Valentines Day and check out all of the flowers, candies and gifts they were getting you. But we’re kind of over that now. Oh those were the days… 😉
Wait…that’s not how you determine how much someone loves you? Weird… 😉
(You know I’m just kidding right? RIGHT? mmk, good)
Now our “Valentines Day Celebration” is much like our Anniversary celebration. haha They normally involve take out and a movie from Netflix. However, this year we’ll probably change it up a bit and watch an obsessive amount of Vampire Diaries instead of a movie. After all, Valentines Day is on a Saturday this year so we can be rebels and stay up late watching mind numbing TV.
We “might” go out to dinner for Valentines but it’ll be like a week after Valentines day so that we don’t have to deal with the crowds. I use to wait tables and I hated Valentines Day with a passion, it’ll be a mad house out there.
I’ve gone through my love and hate phases of Valentines Day over the years (like the time my highschool boyfriend ditched me on Valentines day to go to a concert with this “guy friends” *cough cheater cough* and the times I’ve gotten flowers delivers from my awesome hubby.
Nowadays I’m pretty much like “eehh, it’s ok”. *Thank you LORD that I don’t have to deal with that awkward dating Valentines Day stuff anymore* Now the day AFTER Valentines day…yes I celebrate that day because all of the candy goes on sale! haha
I know I’m jumping all over the place but let me tell you, I use to have the BEST valentines days when I was a little girl. haha My dad use to pick out the sweetest Valentines day gifts and my mom and I always got red or pink roses, candy and some other type of little gift like jewelry or stuffed animals.
One year my dad bought my little brother and I these HUGE teddy bears for Valentines day, they were almost as big as we were and now that I look back on that I just can’t help but smile and laugh a little as I think about my dad going to the store and picking out these giant (and I mean GIANT) teddy bears for us and lugging them home.
Oh memory lane how I love you. 🙂
So let’s just assume that maybe you’re not going to be buying your Valentines a bunch of flowers and a life size teddy bear this year. Le’t just pretend that you’re looking for that perfect gift.
If you’re looking for that awesome gift, I’ve got it right here.
I mean I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t be super excited about someone making homemade doughnuts for them.
Oh and if you do know someone like that, just let them go…they’re not right for you anyways. 😉
Happy (Early) Valentines Day!
