|and yes, you really do rock.|
But back to the sweet stuff. My mama is the sweetest and most generous lady on the planet (I will fight you over this title if you think your mama is better than mine). I mentioned that we still get stockings for Christmas but I don't think I've told you that she also gives us Valentine's Day presents as well. And this year's gift? A little bit of cash. Pretty much the best gift ever for a currently unemployed college student like me. Oh, and she also made those cookies (my sister's holiday faves--you don't have to tell me how many preservatives are in those) and some candy as well. I just love that lady. Did I mention she also bakes the family cookies on a weekly basis? Yeah, we have it good over here. Even if we have to hike/run/chase after children a lot to fit into our jeans...
Thursdays are ballroom dancing days, so I made sure to wear some nicer clothes yesterday. Sweats are not an option, even if that means I pack a pair of jeans in my twenty-pound backpack because I also have that PE class for teachers (running and doing sit-ups and push-ups in jeans is uncomfortable, friends). I would also tell you that I know I'm superficial and like to look presentable. But we started learning swing dancing--and boy, is it fun! So much so that I cannot wait to go back next week.
If you asked me about my Valentine's Day festivities, I would also mention the fact that the sun was shining the ENTIRE day. And yes, a dry and sunny February day in the Pacific Northwest deserves capital letters.
Despite all of the red roses and romance around me, I had a good single girl's day (no tears over here!) and spent the evening babysitting some of the cutest kids in town. And I managed to go home with some homemade Valentine's, too. That pretty much made my day.
So yeah. That about sums up my uneventful yet super sweet Valentine's Day. Who knew it would turn into such a lengthy post? Okay, so maybe I saw that one coming. #sorrynotsorry
How was your love day, friend?
