I hate that my phone won’t e-mail out pictures while I’m at work… for some reason it waits until I leave the building. Odd. So that’s why I’m late.
Right, on to Valentine’s Day…
Like many people, I think that Valentine’s Day is a silly Hallmark holiday. However, I do think it’s a nice day to check in with myself. A day to make myself feel happy and loved! A day to remind myself that I’m worth it!
So I wore some heels that make me feel sexy:
Downside: they also make me realize how far away my cube is from the bathroom (really far) and how much water I drink in a day (a lot)! But they sure are HOT and make me feel pretty… oh so pretty.
I wore a heart necklace that makes me giggle:
It’s made from Lego’s! (and it’s new)
And I wore some boyfriend pride:
I felt pretty rocking all day! I make a pretty great valentine if I do say so myself.
I wasn’t planning on seeing the wonderful boyfriend on V. Day because I had class… and he goes to bed at the same time as is stereotypical for senior citizens… and I was completely ok with that, I knew our love would still be there on the 15th. I like to think I’m pretty good at assessing my own needs, and I knew that I didn’t need a whole hurrah (and I’ve never thought of it as a gift giving holiday). I would have been happy with a post-it note left on the table saying “Don’t forget, I love you and think you’re great.”
So of course I was surprised to come home and find this:
A bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries.
Bah, I look goofy in the back. (but I’m enjoying my treat)
He’s really wonderful and stayed up late just for me (which was the best part). I also have to say, this is a terrific by-product of dating an architect. He found a picture on Edible Arrangements, was appalled by the price for how little they give you, so he built one himself… with 2 pounds of strawberries. (I’m actually a little shocked by how much work he put into making the whole thing stand up)
He’s adorable. Plus, when we first started dating he wooed me with chocolate covered strawberries… so I guess it’s our thing.
Anyway, so that was how I spent my Valentine’s Day! How did you spend yours? Were you a good Valentine to yourself?
Happy Valentine’s Day!
