I seem to be a day or two behind this week with all of my posts….  But I had to post a recap of my Valentine’s day.

In general, I’m not a big advocate for the Valentine’s day holiday.  Ages ago I was dumped on Valentine’s Day which may have started my slight of the day, but over the years I just found two things first, it has tended to be a let-down holiday and secondly & most importantly when people are in love they don’t need a holiday to celebrate it (IMO).  I think it can be fun to go out with the girls and have fun on this day and I also think it’s awesome that couples go out to celebrate the day if they want to.

Last year I didn’t buy my guy anything special, but after dinner I surprised him with a scavenger hunt for dessert, just to do something fun.  But this year my man sure did surprise me!

As far as I remember, we weren’t planning on doing a big deal with gifts.  Apparently he said that to throw me off of trail & gifting scheme.  He got me 3 totally thoughtful, fab presents just because:

He got me three very thoughtful presents!

The shiny zippo lighter guy isn’t actually a lighter but a hand warmer.  I have no idea how I came across it initially but I had added this to my amazon favorites around Christmas time.  My hands and feet are nearly always cold, so I thought a hand warmer would be the perfect winter gift.  And he got it for me!

He also got me a vintage 50’s hat that’s been in my etsy favorites for quite some time, too.

It’s black velvet with silver beading, done by hand.

And lastly, he got me a needle felting kit from etsy, for a bunny!

Isn’t it the cutest bunny!  I hope I’m able to make one just as cute!  (Lots of exclamation points here….)  I was so excited by this little guy.

Kit Innards:

The bulk of the roving is in a creamy white, so it seems I’ll be having a little white bunny on my hands soon.

I’ve been intrigued by the idea of needle felting and creating cute little creatures from it.  I recall seeing some lambs and sheep that were adorable, and I just looked on in awe as to how to create them.  But now I have my very own kit to learn from.  *hip hip*

So I’m going to have warm hands, a fashionable head, and a (third) cute bunny rabbit.  :)  My honey totally knows me!

And here I am disliking Valentine’s Day and being all “bah humbug” about it.  heh  I may have to sing a different tune next year.  :)

How do you guys feel about the holiday?  Are you a fan or a bah-humbug like me?
