Today V took me to a fancy brunch at a winery for Valentine’s Day weekend. It was delicious!
Did you do anything for this Hallmark holiday weekend?
I kind of detest Valentine’s Day. Even when I do have a special someone to share the day with, I think it’s kind of ridiculous and solely based on Hallmark’s need for humankind to buy a ton of romantic junk. (My favorite part of the holiday is February 15th, when all the candy is half priced!)
Despite my feelings towards this redunkulous Hallmark holiday, I still secretly enjoy spoiling V rotten. I surprised her with flowers last year, and this year, with our over abundance of snow, I only had the chance to pick up flowers today.
When I got to the grocery store, I saw this sign.
We had snow day #10 today so I was able to spend the whole day with V. We went out for a late lunch, and then we saw a movie. It was a really nice day together.
The restaurant we went to for lunch also gave each of us a rose, which was sweet and exciting.
I also let it slip that I missed class last Valentine’s Day to spend it with V. I apparently told her it had been canceled. I’m never going to live this one down.
Maybe I do like this sappy shiz afterall. It helps when you have a worthwhile Valentine.
I received an email from Target the other day.
My reaction was not to be upset or angry, but rather grateful that Target had told me that my name, address, phone number, or email “may have” been taken. “May have” is awfully like “maybe” which is a lot like “probably not,” or at least that’s how things go in my head. Plus, they offered me a free year of credit monitoring just to be safe WHICH TOTALLY MEANS TARGET LOVES ME AND IS LOOKING OUT FOR ME.
Also… I have a sick addiction to Target. My Target card gave me food and clothing during grad school, and it’s proven to be a place of comfort and nirvana when I just need to aimlessly walk and de-stress. It’s not that I have a problem and can’t stop shopping in Target; it just provides me comfort and solitude like no other place can.
Plus, I once made it THREE WEEKS without stepping foot inside of Target.
I totally don’t have a Target problem.
Or…I’m just a little bit brainwashed. Why else would I end up in a Target 2 days after being told my identity may have been stolen?!
Regardless, I have an inexplicable, irrevocable love for Target that will never be replaced. I just can’t help it.
PS This post was NOT sponsored by Target. I just have an addiction that has no cure.
