Valentine's Day is coming up. Woof. Not that I have anything against celebrating with your SO...if you're in to that sort of thing.
My friends are all pretty much relationshipped-up so they'll all be spending quality time with bae.
It's been a few years since I've been single, but you know what they say right?
If you fail to plan, you'll be lonely on Valentine's Day and you'll end up eating a whole box of chocolates while your dog quietly judges you. And I can't have that.
Here are 3 things I'll be doing February 14th that have nothing to do with romance...or a whole box of chocolates.
- 1) My loveable pup, Frances (pictured above left), turns the big O-N-E on 2/14 so I'll be baking her a pup-friendly Birthday Cake CAKE CAKE CAKE CAKE....sorry....they're actually "pup-cakes"! Here's a link to the treat I pinned on my Pinterest board. Maybe I'll Facebook LIVE the whole thing!
- 2) You may, or may not, know that I bought a house this summer! It needs a lot of love and I'm happy to do most of it DIY-style! I've taken on redoing the kitchen floors, the budget friendly way. I have ceramic tile so I'll be painting over it and stenciling on a design to make it look like painted concrete tile. Wish me luck...and check back for before and after photos.
- 3) Finishing up the current book I'm reading. I made a New Years Resolution to read one book per month this year: and I am slacking! Current read: The Snowman, by Jo Nesbo. So far, so good! I really like it and I think they recently made it into a movie!
So there ya go! I'll be doing all of that while simultaneously refusing to acknowledge that it's anything other than just another Wednesday.
