I Don't Get It

One day, set aside for love. The balloons, the candy, the stuffed animals- I. Don't. Get. It. Why take one day of the year to show someone that you love them? I doesn't make sense to me.

For me, it is more romantic for my husband to surprise me with a milkshake in the middle of summer, than to give me flowers on Valentine's Day. For me, I would rather cook Justin his favorite meal, just because he wants it- not because it is Valentine's Day. Do I cherish Maddie's pictures more on Valentine's Day, than I do on any other day? Of course not.

Thanks to Rachel, From the Land of Monkeys and Princesses for this awesome graphic.

Now, I off to Target. To buy gifts for Maddie's preschool teachers, because not everyone in her class feels the same way I do. I looked like the bad mommy again, because I didn't bake a loaf of home-made strawberry bread, shaped in a heart. I brought strawberry jell-o.

It's red. What more could they expect from me?

Oh, I just JUST got back from Target and it seems like the ENTIRE store is 50% off. I had 2 carts full. Happy v-day to me! I am so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not a Valentines person either. Just give me the candy and go away, I say!

Well, not quite. But close.

Just once, wouldn't you like to have a romantic Valentine's dinner in a quiet romantic restaurant with beautiful flowers and candles? Yeah, I say bah to Valentine's day also, but deep down, I really wish my DH would get the little cupid guy to shoot an arrow through his rear end to at least make him jump for me. Just once.

I could not agree more. And I am so jealous of your target trip. I wish there was a target within 30 miles of my house! I love that place.

Amen on the VD crap.

So, have you been back to the gym?

FUN-ky Mama said...

I like VD. (heh)
I do the lovey stuff at other times, too. And I get flowers on other days, too. But I like an excuse to do extra-lovey stuff. Makes me happy. :o)

BTW - Kids LOVE jello. Only mom's know that it is easier and faster to make than heart shaped bread that no one wants to eat!

Your Jello makes you the best mom and those other women ...
Show Offs!

The perfect Valentines Day EVER would be with Ryan Sheckler the pro skater!!!
