A lot of girls like to wear pink dresses on Valentine’s Day. I am one of those girls. Unfortunately, I do not currently own a pink dress. It makes me sad. So I had to improvise with purple. I think it worked just fine.
Do you like my Valentine’s wreath? Well, even if you don’t, I can’t hear you, so…joke’s on you! I made it myself. 🙂 I’m really into the wreath-making biz right now, and I know I keep saying I’m going to dedicate a post to my crafty creations. And I will!…very soon. Next up are wreaths dedicated to Spring and Summer, and possibly one that is nautical themed. I’m already brainstorming ideas…should be good stuff!
Back in high school, people could send carnations on Valentine’s Day, and for some odd reason I got several every year. To this day, I still don’t know who sent them. I’m guessing they came from Mam…or maybe I had a secret admirer? Or the more likely option: a creeper. I did have a legit stalker for 2 years. Fast forward 10 (OH MY HECK) years, and I still get flowers every Valentine’s, and I’ve also gotten a teddy bear every year since I’ve been married. This year, my hubby got me a Poe Dameron outfit from Build a Bear. I have 4 bears from the company, and I put the outfit on one of them, and it’s perfect and adorable and he knows me so well. 🙂 But he keeps teasing me that he’s been replaced by PoeBear, since I like to snuggle with it when we’re sleeping. Heehee.
I tell ya, man, 2016 has NOT been kind to my body thus far. All throughout January I had a sinus infection, and then a week ago I got a dumb stomach lymph glands problem that’s been keeping me hopped up on Lortab. This all explains why I’ve been MIA with the fashion blogging. Hopefully this whole me-being-sick-so-early-on-in-the-year thing will pass by and then the rest of the year I’ll be healthy as a dog on steroids. Fingers crossed.
