Ahh, amour!

Hello hello!  And Happy Valentine's to you all! Yep, I said it.  Happy Hallmark day :-D  Hey, I guess if there's a mass market for wearing red and being sappy, we may as well all eat some chocolate and enjoy it, right?  And, just to sweeten your day....I give you....the top 10 reasons to heart (or at least tolerate!) February 14th :-D

1.  There are some fabulous indulgent groupons available today.  Running skirts?  Aww yeah!  Mani or pedi for $20?  Don't mind if I do!
2.  Or, if you want to keep it free, check out Mizuno's awesome red/pink shoe giveaway!  Who's your best runnign buddy?
3.  New Girl.  With a valentine.  Fishing cherries out of a drink a la "Can I have your cherry?"  I'm spitting out my coffee in anticipation of the ridiculousness!
4.  Or, if ya know, you love your honey and he's a crazy sports fan, the Buffalo Sabres also play tonight.  Why they would put a hockey game on on Valentine's day is beyond me...someone in the NHL hates the day and wants to start some marital spats :-D  (Thank goodness we have a DVR!)
5. It's a great night to have a decadent dinner and/or dessert...whether attached or unattached!  Tonight, I'm in charge of dinner and the hubster's doin' dessert.  On the menu....yum...engagement chicken!  Yes, I know.  I'm married.  No one said it had to make sense.
6.  Two words:  conversation hearts.  How can you not love these guys?  I'm not a fan of the taste, but the whole "U R mine 4ever" gets me every time.  Just not "Text Me".  Never, ever "text me".  yeesh.
7.  As Victoria  so rightly pointed out...HELLO! Discount chocolate tomorrow!  Don't buy chocolate for today-wait till tomorrow when all the red and white stuff is 75% off!  Personally, I think it's fine to wait to exchange chocolates.  I'd rather have twice as much for less $$.
8.  No matter how old you are, you can still watch silly Valentine's day themed cartoons....does Charlie Brown get a valentine from the little red haired girl?  Watch and find out! 
9.  Seriously.  How could you not laugh at these?  Even if you have no one to share them with, (ok, heck who would even want to take part in this??) The ridiculousness had me in stitches.  And free laughs are always good.  Seriously, though....would anyone buy these?  I'm intrigued.  Wow.
10.  And, lastly, no matter how much you might publicly hide your girly side...this is the day you can flaunt it.  Wear pink.  Watch romantic comedies (if your S.O. hasn't already commandeered the TV for the sabres game!) listen to "I will always Love You" (or just DVR the documentary.  So sad.)  Personally, I've got the Bachelor DVRed, along with "Valentine's Day" to get me through Speed work (and couch time) later.  Good thing we have 2 TVs.  Dibs on the bigger one.  Love you, hubster :-D

Have a wonderful hearts n flowers n chocolate day, sweeties!


  1. FUNDIES??? WTF. I missed all of my TV tonight (Tuesday is my TV night and everything is Valentine's Day themed!!) so I guess I will be catching up the rest of the week. And my Valentine got me the complete Star Wars BluRay.. nothing says romance like Han Solo!
