Valentine’s Day

Hey Lovelies,

Here is that bonus post that I promised. I did want to talk about Valentine’s Day on the “most romantic day of the year”! (I  just cringed as I typed that.) Today I will provide a video link on the history of Valentine’s Day. This is also going to be one of those life posts  where I tell you a bit of personal stuff about me.

I found a quick two minute clip on the history of Valentine’s Day, which you can watch here:

I am a die hard romantic. I think love is wonderful and amazing, but it is also the most sickening thing on the planet, especially when you’re single. I have been the single one out of my friends for a very long time. I’ve never had plans on Valentine’s Day with a love interest, it’s always been celebrated with my other single friends or my family (*shudders*). In all sincerity, I have loved hanging out with my friends and family on this “very special day” and doing our own thing. This year things are a bit different and I have a guy and a date for Valentine’s Day. I will admit it’s kinda weird and I’m a tad bit excited.

For those of you who are single for Valentine’s Day, here is what I’ve been doing to celebrate:

  1. Wine. Lots of wine. I’ve had friends come over and we watch musicals and do a wine tasting night with the cheese included.
  2. We’ve ordered heart shaped pizza and watched chick flicks and drank wine.
  3. I’ve spent the night alone writing with a glass of wine beside me.
  4. Listened to music and had an impromptu dance party. Wine may have been involved here as well.
  5. Did I mention wine?
  6. We’ve drank wine and talked about why we’re all single. (I don’t suggest this one. It can go downhill pretty fast.)
  7. Watch the movie Valentine’s Day and drink wine.

If you don’t care for those ideas, or you object to wine, here are some other suggestions:

  1. Get your single friends together and go out and have fun at a movie or go bowling.
  2. Have a Valentine’s Day “secret Santa” with your friends. Draw names and deliver heart shaped and chocolate goodies to each other.
  3. Go treat yourself out! Go get that mani/pedi, video game, or really expensive something.
  4. Ask a friend out on a platonic date. Make fun of everyone else who is coupled up and out. Or make up stories on how their dates are going and whether they’re going to last.
  5. Take a vacation and go skiing or something. If you have the money.
  6. Act like it’s a normal day.
  7. Baby sit for someone. You get money and children are entertaining.
  8. Work on you. Go workout. Create a vision board of your perfect man/woman. Go over your resolutions and see how you’re doing.
  9. Bake or cook! Or learn how to do these things. Or write. Work on your hobbies.
  10. Have an anti-Valentine’s Day party.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single or not. Don’t forget to check in for this week’s post on Thursday.
