Valentine's Day Cards

Sometimes Brad and I are not good with words. Okay, I shouldn't throw Brad under the bus.  It's mainly me that has trouble articulating my feelings. Although one time when Brad and I were first dating he did try and use an analogy about sticking his foot into the puddle of love I just threw him under the bus there, didn't I?  Then again, I may have one time tried to compare our love to Houdini...but that's not what this post is about...

What this post is actually about is VD and not the sexually transmitted kind.  I am talking about Valentine's Day, people. You know that 'Hallmark Holiday' people either love or hate.  My thoughts on the day are pretty simple.  I don't need anything over the top, but I don't mind doing something to show a little extra love and appreciation.  I know people come back with the argument that you should love and appreciate your special person every day, but it also doesn't hurt to show some extra love every now and then, even if Hallmark has to be the one giving you the extra push and chocolate.

Honestly, this is really all I ask for on Valentine's Day:


One of my favorite things about Holidays and VD in particular is picking out the perfect card whether it be for your significant other or even close girl friends. With all that being said though, I have never been one to pick a card that is super lovely-dovey and traditionally sentimental.  Not my style, nor is it Brad's either.

This brings me to my favorite type of Valentine's Day cards. The ones that are super awkward, but still show how much I care about the person :)

I totally forgot about Valentine's Day. That's what happens when you have a child with a 2/13 birthday.

Have you seen the cards by Fomato? I love them. I am sad that I buy them for other people but never seem to receive them because I want the cards for myself.

I tried picking out a Valentine's Day card at Target the other day and ended up leaving without one. We go for funny cards too, the sappy romantic ones are just too much for me. But none of the "comedy" ones were that funny. Maybe I have time to find something online :)

I love the awkward and funny VD cards out there! I got my guy one that says, "I wanna verb your noun" one year and he still has it hanging on his fridge. Lol! And agreed over the Mr. Darcy quote. I die.
