Valentine’s Day is almost here and you’re totally unprepared.

Don’t worry, we’re all way behind. I blame it on today being the 100th day of school. My son’s homework for the big day actually stressed me out. And he’s 5.  I’m going to make it easy for you to look like mother-of-the-year. If you have children in elementary school, be sure to check out their treats to help spread the love.

 Too Cute : Blush Valentine's Day Cards for Kids

 

I just witnessed Dr. Ruth giving sex advice on The Doctors. Discuss amongst yourselves.

I just Googled it and she’s 84 years old. You go girl. I seriously wish all of you were watching this. There were actually diagrams shown. DIAGRAMS PEOPLE.

 

This is Valentine’s Day programming at it’s best. Or worst. Either way, Happy Hallmark Day. If you have yet to buy your honey a gift from Etsy, you’re too late. Or are you?

Lucky for you Itsy Belle offers awesome printables for every type of party—including one for Valentine’s Day. You can purchase and print at home TODAY.

And with that I just saved the day. Actually Itsy Belle saved the day if you want to get all technical about it. Now I need to go wash my eyes out after watching The Doctors.

 

All in favor of eating say I. "I."

Here’s an idea, instead of getting your loved one something he/she/it will never use, get him/her/it something edible. Everyone likes to eat. Unless of course you are stuck wearing headgear all day.

Do they even make kids wear headgear any more? Sorry, I digress.

“My mom likes her coffee juice”

Yesterday I picked up my son and he handed me his art project – a Valentine’s Day card. The assignment? Tell the teacher what you love about mommy. Now, my little guy sort of missed the mark on this assignment and told his teacher what I love instead of what he loves about me, but hey, I was always one to break the rules too.

So my little man’s card reads, “My mom likes her coffee juice.” I love that he knows me so well. It’s like we’re related. Oh wait, we are.

Anyhoo, today I celebrate the awesomeness of coffee juice by sharing these coffee cup sleeves from East Coast Kitsch. I didn’t know it was even possible to love coffee more than I already do, but I do. I really, really do.

Am I hot or not? I’m thinking not.

So I walk into Starbucks this morning to get my fix and can’t help but notice a guy checking me out. I think to myself, “Hey, I may be 34, have two kids, no sleep, great hubby, two stinky dogs, and one needy cat, but I’ve still got it. I’m looking good. Real good.” Sometimes it just feels good to get checked out.

And then I got into the elevator at work and saw my reflection – my freaking black eye looks hideous. I’m a monster. In conclusion, it turns out the dude wasn’t checking me out because I look good, it’s because I’m a total freak show. Awesome.

It’s a good thing I stumbled upon Jellybeans. These beautiful watercolor paintings make me smile and almost forget about my freakishly black eye.

If you still haven’t purchased a Valentine’s Day gift, I would suggest ordering one of these or forever staying single. Just sayin’. OK, off to start my day (I’ve been in windup mode since 7am. I start winding down around 4pm. It’s a rough life.) Still looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Check these out. And these. And of course these.

Happy ‘Julie Friday’ Everyone!

What’s that you say? You’ve never heard of this national holiday? At work they call Thursday, Julie Friday, because I’m not in the office on Fridays. I’m sort of a legend in my own mind.

And in honor of my own personal holiday, I think I’ll buy myself some flowers from My Bohemian Summer. I’m also think of taking a Paper making class on Craftsy so I can learn to make these all by myself! These are perfect because they won’t die when I forget to water them or because my cat decides to gnaw on the leaves for a snack. Yes Chloe, I’m talking about you!

And hellllooo, Valentines Day is around the corner. These would be a great gift for the little girl in your life. Think about it this way, it will keep you from having to explain death to your children after their beautiful flowers wither and die. Just saying. And check out these super clever origami fortune poppers. What a great favor idea for a huge celebration, like Julie Friday for example.

OK, going to sign up for taking a Paper making class on Craftsy!!!! I’m excited!
