...but I am so excited for Valentine's Day.
And while I realize that my current position on Love Day is odd, considering my distaste for Christmas music and my apathy towards Thanksgiving turkey, I have fully developed my thesis for why I am obsessed.
1) Chocolate . Nuf said.
2) Baking cupcakes (I hope some will turn out like this!)
3) Being a teacher on Valentine's Day! Although I am a bit nervous, on account of the drama going on in my room with ... gag me with a spoon... crushes, I absolutely love making the little paper bags, decorating our names, making a Valentine for everyone (that's the rule) and delivering them "in secret".
4) The entire holiday is so cheesy, there's no guilt in the consumerism of the day, unlike Christmas and Easter. It's just silliness, and I love it.
5) Feeling like I'm 8 years old, too, when I get to make sweets and cards for the hubs and friends. You don't have to confess your undying love or tell your best friend how much she means to you, all you have to do is find a friend, draw a heart, and sent a pink cookie. Love it!
Some of you, at this point, may be feeling very sorry for the hubs. It's true, my love for this holiday does not exactly fall in line with his sentiments. When the display of red, heart-shaped muffin tins, pink serving bowls, and adorable sprinkle sets hit the aisles of Target, my sigh communicated contentment. His sigh, on the other hand, might as well have been complete and utter exasperation. He is, however, tied to me till the end, so he is completely supporting my desire to bake and send cards and generally be a goofball. That's why I love him.
What about you? Are you as in love with this day as I am?
