It’s Valentine’s Day Tomorrow?!

You’d think I lived under a rock. In retrospect, okay, sure, how could I not have realized this? The stores are packed with Valentine’s themed stuff, the casinos are promoting their restaurants like crazy, on the news this morning, they were talking about some exotic rose that costs $25 a stem...

It's all making sense now: this is what it feels like when your brain goes ‘bye-bye’. Hmmm. Not as painful as I thought it would be. When I was single, I used to have to pretend to forget Valentine’s Day. But now, this is the real deal!

Huh.

HBL and I decided we’re not going to do anything special this year for Valentine’s (which is a good thing, because I haven’t even gotten him a card due to my brain lapse!) because he has to work all weekend. However, it is Monkey’s very first Valentine’s Day, so we agreed we should do something fun for him. Maybe put his baby food in a heart shaped bowl or I may bake him heart shaped cookies that HBL and I will eat on his behalf. Ooooh, I could surprise HBL by dressing Monkey up in full Valentine regalia: Cupid! With wings! No? Well, the cookie idea is pretty genius.

I like the idea where you bake cookies and then eat them on his behalf. Yes, that's the way you should go.

Happy Valentine's Day!

You definitely do not live under a rock. Valentine's is a "take it or leave it" holiday in my book. If you feel up to celebrating, you can. Otherwise, letting it pass you by entirely is totally OK too. It is not a mandatory holiday, like Christmas. :)

Your method to celebrating is brilliant. Cookies and your baby cupid. What more do you need?

Hi Jennifer! I am feeling much better, thankyou! lol. :) And I'm glad you are joining in on my blog.

Now onto the Vday stuff... my SO & I are also not doing anything. He has work all night, every day this weekend. But, I've never been a big Vday fan, so thats ok!

I, must say though, I may just steal the whole cookie idea. It sounds great! :)

I totally love the idea of dressing the lil guy up as Cupid!! And I think he'd be cool with you all eating his cookies..it's the thought that counts!!

Hope you have a fun Valentine's Day!

I totally forgot about V-Day too!! When I remembered it was Friday night and I was stuck with a sick baby in Urgent Care for four hours. I came home so tired that I thought I'd pick something up this morning but when I woke up hubby had a surprise for me! I feel like such a heel!
