In case you haven't noticed from the last two posts here and here ...
I hate the color pink. I know, I know. Crazy talk. Stick with me here, I'm about to get crazier... I don't like chocolate. *GASP* I know.
I know I just laid down some make-or-break terms... hopefully we can still be friends?
Things I DO love about Valentine's Day:
I just love how every one is cheesy. Like, Ordy and I are lovey-dovey all the time- 99% of the time it's nice to see others in the same mood. I just said 99% of the time because the 1% he is probably rolling his eyes at me and giving me a hard time for storing my yard sale finds in his garage... I'm pretty hard to love then :)
I decorated my house a little. It's hard to find non-pink things, but the occasional pink decor doesn't bother me. I might have to pick some up on sale this year the day after! I decorated my house 2 weeks ago, but waited until now so you couldn't judge me. But by disclosing that, it's too late- isn't it?
This isn't really a Valentine's Day decoration, BUT, it is super cute and worth sharing. Ordy went to an antique mall one weekend (without me, nerd!) and knows my obsession with milk glass and scooped this prize up for me. I was so so so happy. I think it's gonna be adorable with pink and red m&m's, but since I didn't have any, winter oreos will do!
My centerpiece from this post:
I printed these out, taped them on burlap scrap paper, and framed them in these $1 yard sale frames (I painted primer gray)...
My sister's friend made her these flower bordered mirrors and I have had them for YEARS... I pull them out every Christmas/Valentine's Day... The gold tray was a X-mas sale find from Target ($7) and the tray is holding: candles and Valentine's Day Dog Cookies (in heart and bone shapes!)
Just an extra feminine touch in the corner
Bandit loving his easily accessible treats!
And of course, this Wednesday's Dozen! Gorgeous "Football" Mums! In yellow (he knows me well) and white (he REALLY knows me well)...
Hope y'all are having as much fun as I am with all this decorating! It's a romantic touch in the house, and I absolutely love it. I'm glad I got the decoration out early enough because I want to be able to enjoy it!
Since it's the holiday of love, here are some posts so you know why I love Ordy Boy- since this is really what the blog is all about :)
-City of Love
-Fake Proposal (giving everyone a minor heart attack...also the most read post on the blog...)
