Lovin’ the Sh*t Outta You

Guys: don’t ever believe your lady when she says she doesn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day. In girl speak, nothing means everything… and then some. ALWAYS. She might say just spending time with you at home is enough, but once she sees that big bouquet of flowers delivered to that annoying coworker two cubicles down, you’re in trouble.

When Cesar asked me what I wanted to do this year, I tried to put up a nonchalant front by saying I didn’t care. At first I thought I meant it. And really, truly, I did! But then I went to Paper Source and caught myself laughing at funny cards. And then I hopped online and it felt like every blogger in every corner of the Internet had created some type of ‘Valentine’s Gift Guides for Her” post. As much as I didn’t want to give in to this Hallmark holiday, I couldn’t help it, and I got to wondering if Cesar really was going to take me up on what I said.

Now, it isn’t that I’m not in a fulfilling relationship and it isn’t that I’m so materialistic that I demand a diamond bracelet for every occasion. It’s more so that I’m the girl who spends every last hard-earned penny on plastic cauldrons and eyeball ice cubes I don’t need every Halloween. In my world, I file Valentine’s Day under the list of ‘Items Where Colorful Marketing Gets Me Every Time.’

Lucky for me, he didn’t take me up on my word. Even though he didn’t have to, he took me out to brunch at Max Brenner’s Chocolate Bar and surprised me with a home cooked dinner at his home (that he decorated with balloons containing reasons why I’m loved). Plus I ended up with some pretty cool new camera gear. I’m a really fortunate girl :)

  1. Hahaha I love this. I also try not to make a big deal out of Valentine’s day with my boyfriend, but it’s always nice to be surprised with a gift or flowers <3 :) Glad to hear you had a good Valentine's Day!
