As a former waitress who worked many a holiday shift, I’ve historically avoided going out on Valentine’s Day like the plague – too many bad memories of lackluster food and insane dinner services. Most of my fonder V-Day memories quite honestly involve my couch, DVDs of favorite Japanese horror movies and copious alcohol. Tonight though, my husband and I are going out to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date. Hopefully since it’s a weekday it will be less of a madhouse.
The custom cards I ordered finally arrived last week and I was very excited to mail them! I love sweet animal photos, to the point where I’ve begun to receive complaints from friends about the frequency of my email forwards: “You’re like one of my crazy aunts who keeps emailing chain letters warning about cell phone radiation,” one of my bridesmaids complained. “Can you please stop sending things to my work email?” another dude requested, after my email titled “BEAR + CAT = LOVE” flashed across the screen courtesy of Microsoft Outlook while at a big meeting. Seriously, how can you resist Muschi and Maeuschen?
Because of my animal obsession, I couldn’t resist sending out this card this year:
Never thought I’d have a Valentine’s Day card inspired by Reddit, but come on – cute right? I made them on Tiny Prints, which was a pretty easy experience, although I couldn’t find any Valentine’s themed cards that I could customize to the extent I wanted to. Finally I had to use a baby themed card (the back of this actually says that it’s from a brand called “Hello Little One”).
Finally I’m not sure yet what I’m going to wear for dinner, but I think it’s going to a print or texture of some sort! Here are some candidates:
Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you staying in or going out?
