Valentine’s Day Cheers and Jeers

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day of either forced affection or rampant bitterness.

Me? I’m on the fence. I don’t necessarily think that hearts, chocolate, flowers, or crowded restaurants scream “I love you!” But I am also a girl, so I’m a sucker for romantic gestures. Like the tulips the hubs surprised me with.

So today I will straddle the fence and share with you my recent loves and loathes:

Cheer: veggiesI’ve come to the conclusion that you’re unAmerican if you don’t like veggies. And fruit, for that matter.

This top is loose and comfy and has thumbies, and the high neck has been perfect for these cold days

Jeer: weatherPolar Vortex or not, the weather needs to make up its damn mind. None of this snow one day, 60 degrees the next shit.

Beautiful snowfall on Wednesday night. It goes perfectly with the skirt and tank top I have laid out for this weekend’s marathon.

Cheer: mac & cheeseYes, I have mentioned the same meal in three different posts. It’s that important.

No shame in my game

Jeer: MiamiSo the Sylvans both invaded Miami on business trips, but missed each other by less than 24 hours. It’s because Miami couldn’t handle the both of us at one time.

A hand model I am not

Jeer: Frizzy hairWhen flying out of BHM, TSA pulled me aside to search my hair because it was too puffy to register on their naked body scanner machine. And then I was in the land of 1000% humidity. Time for a haircut.
