I guess I've never been a huge Valentine's Day celebrator. I'm not anti...I've just never really cared much one way or the other. Yesterday I was reflecting on this and decided to see if I could find a good V-Day picture from the past...a little throwback or something, right? Well...I dug through quite a few ancient folders of pictures and couldn't find much evidence of Valentine's Day, so I guess that says something.
I did, however, find this. So my searching wasn't entirely in vain.
This was from the year 2005 and because back then you still had to name your picture files, this one is appropriately named "roundhouse kick." Indeed. That would be me roundhouse kicking my bestie Catherine in the parking lot behind our townhouse. Can we take a minute to appreciate how awesome my outfit is? And how ladylike I am? Truly, my mother should be proud.
Anyway, back to Valentine's Day. It would seem that the most effort I put forward is an attempt to wear pink. Pretty festive of me.
|This was in 2006 and is titled "vday," so apparently I celebrated by wearing pink. Matt and I had started dating 3 days before V-Day that year, so we definitely did not do any sort of celebrating. Awwwwkward.|
For babies. Because I'm sure they'll really care.
But I'm not really that bitter. Just cheap enough that I didn't want to spend actual money on cards. Plus, I'm pretty sure the only cards for sale are obnoxious and emblazoned with cartoon and Disney characters, and I'm totally not into that. So I DIYed it.
Yeah. Probably not the most Pinteresting thing you've ever seen, but it'll get the job done for a dozen of her favorite infant friends. (P.S. The "be mine" and "love" are stamps...not my own gorgeous and remarkably consistent handiwork.)
Don't worry, though. I'm taking better care of her teachers.
|Hopefully this is their love language.|
|My mom is so unfestive. At least she lets me wear pink this week, though!|
|Pink AND hearts?! Are you working for Hallmark or something, Mommy?|
