Valentine's Day...whatever

If you are basking in the glow of two dozen red roses, or bloated from consuming large amounts of imported chocolates or giddy at the prospect of the last-minute trip to Paris your Valentine just presented to you...this post is not for you.

If you have a  husband that you adore the other 364 days of the year (except Valentine's Day)....read on;

Scott is a loving husband, father, son, brother, friend....he is in fact a  much nicer person than myself.  A plan-ahead type person...sadly..he is not.  Adding to this dilemma is the fact that we live almost an hours drive from civilization (in the form of malls, flower shops etc.) so there is really no possibility of "last-minute shopping".  Do you see where I'm going with this?

Now I know what you're thinking...it's not about the commercial stuff. He could have made me a home made heart shaped cake, or a delicate red paper heart garland, but remember ladies...he has no idea what Pinterest is.

This morning I was not awakened to heart-shaped pancakes served in bed....I was awakened, however, when the dog farted in our bedroom.  That's the kind of Valentine's Day I'm talking about.

So while I love him dearly and he does kind things every other day for me, my warm, fuzzy Valentine's memories are scarce. 

I just got finished baking some heart shaped sugar cookies, I noticed that if I turn them upside down the top of the heart looks like buttocks....which may come in handy if I need to moon someone later.

Happy V-Day.

PS:  If the joke is on me and he pulls out a surprise later today  I'll have to retract this post...but don't hold your breath.


  1. HA, HA, HA!!! Gosh, that sounds like my house, except I would've awakened to hubby farting...our dogs are little and only one of them sleeps in the bedroom with us (the non-gassy one).
    CH (hubby) told me last night (as I was finishing up his truffles) that he didn't plan on doing anything for me since I didn't like it. Hmmmph.

  2. I think I have your husband's twin. I learned along ago to not sweat it and you know what I did this year? I ordered myself a book and told him thank you for the gift, it works for us!
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. I hear ya....I dropped a million hints. I got a sweet card and some fancy tea. He stopped on his way home from work at about 6 pm tonight.

  4. I got a sweet handwritten note and a date on Sunday to Homegoods and Marshalls to shop as long as I wanted.It is 2 hrs away. He surprised me after church and said let's go. Mine is very thoughtful. I suck. I planned nothing for him. Poor guy.

  5. You crack me up! In our house, only one person did not get chocolates today....and that would be me. I did get a nice card tucked sneakily in to my laptop so that I found it when I got to work...but hello! where's the chocolate? My plan is to buy some for myself when it all goes on sale tomorrow.

    I am not really complaining. Oliver's usually very good. Maybe he used it all up on my birthday. I was very pampered.

  6. Love this! I give my husband a break since our anniversary is the day before VD. I'd rather him continue to be kind and supportive, helpful and funny every day than to expect him to shower me with flowers and whatnot one day a year!!
