While Alex and I may not celebrate February 14th the way the rest of the country does, I just wanted to stop by real quick. The doggies are dyyying to tell you…
Surprisingly, we were a little more traditional this year. Last week we were discussing how we love that we’re on the same page as far as Valentine’s Day goes. No gross chalk hearts, no gamble chocolates, and no over priced cards… Mainly, we felt that giving each other some random gifts throughout the year was a little more thoughtful than buying something just because it was a certain day of the year (don’t worry, we still celebrate other holidays!)
Apparently that discussion fueled a little gift-giver in each of us. I decided to buy him a truck part that he’s been eyeing and he independently decided to buy me a backpack camera carrying case (the off the shoulder bag makes me feel like I’m carrying around a diaper bag and I often hit it on everything!). Last week we had our little exchange and instead of saying “Happy Valentine’s Day,” we awkwardly barked out… “uhhh, Happy Thursday!” It was kind of silly. But cute.
So, in an effort to boycott the holiday totally, we.. well, sort of celebrated in our own way. And tonight, we’ll finish off the day with a cold class of wine and a yummy beef stir-fry. (oh man, is it time to go home yet??) I guess that’s kind of a Boycott-Valentine’s Day-Fail.
And because I think these “hey girl photos” that are floating all over the internet can be hilarious — here’s my rendition for all dog owners.
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Have you ever tried reaaaally hard not to celebrate something, but you did it anyway? Did you set up any awesome surprises for your loved one today?
