Sappy Day

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.

Well played, Shop Rite, well played.

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.

It’s always nice to get flowers from strangers.

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 hate Hallmark holidays.

(but, really, I secretly love them.)

Valentine’s Day was pretty low-key this year. V took me out for lunch at Applebees, and then I cooked us dinner (pumpkin soup, croissants, salad, and chocolate strawberry cake pops for dessert). She surprised me with a sweet card, a giant balloon, and a beautiful rose. I sent her flowers, which surprised the hell out of her.

After dinner, she played a song for me (“To make you feel my love” by Garth Brooks) and asked me to dance.

You know what?

It was the best Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had.

How was your sappy, chocolate appreciation, Hallmark themed holiday? CHOCOLATE IS NOW 75% OFF!!!! (This is my favorite part of the holiday.)
