Because love, PINK STUFF, flowers, and chocolate… duh.
If a random or made-up holiday rolls along and a blogger doesn’t blog about it, did it even happen?! Sure it does, but there’s a lump sum of people who feel obligated to talk about it… it’s oBLOGatory (I made that word up while I was in the shower and, idk, I think it’s funny. Thinking about trade marking it?).
I am not, in any way, knocking Valentine’s Day. I, for one, love this holiday- it might be my favorite of the whole year because of my burning obsession with all things pink. Plus, a day that celebrates love? I love my hot, nerdy husband! Love, love, love him!
I mean, any excuse to go take photos with pink balloons by a cute wall, amIright?! To celebrate V-Day, Joel made us a gourmet dinner of filet mignon (literal translation- cute filet), lobster, with sweet potatoes and asparagus. We had a candle lit dinner at home with Dean Martin playing in the background and it was perfect. It was perfect except for the fact that my lobster still had it’s face and I felt like it was watching me which was awkward. It was 100% dead, but it still had a twinkle in its eyes and I had to keep apologizing as I chowed down.
Side note- wind + balloons make for an interesting photo shoot.
Valentine’s Day 2017 also marks our 9th month married! Now at least you know for sure that it was not a shotgun wedding…
