Valentine’s Day: When You’re A Kid Vs At Age 22

Hey there readers!

I hope you have all had a very lovely Valentine’s Day so far. It’s not over yet so we don’t really know what else is in store for us, but I can definitely say today that Valentine’s Day in the adult world is not that exciting. It’s not as exciting as when you were a kid and you had the whole afternoon dedicated to a class Valentine’s Day party where you would decorate a cookie at a station, pass out Hello Kitty valentines (oh just me?) or spend the entire day consuming sugar. So much sugar. Seriously though, Valentine’s Day sweets > all other holiday candies.

Valentine’s Day in the office was peachy, but nothing will ever take the place of the excitement I had on Valentine’s Day as a kid or even in college and celebrating with my friends.

Wedding Thursdays

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

This is the last wedding video I’m posting up for the week and I’ve been quite generous with letting these go, but I’ve gotta make sure I’ve got enough in the queue to last us.

I couldn’t have picked a more perfect video to highlight from the people behind Shark Pig. Melanie and Kelcey are absolutely darling and look like they are such a fun-loving couple. I’m in love with this video.

Valentine’s Day Is More Than A Commercial Holiday


Though I’ve never celebrated a Valentine’s Day myself, I realize that there is much more meaning to the day than gifts, candies, and flowers. If it were up to me, Valentine’s Day would be everyday because I believe in celebrating love at all times possible. There is so much emphasis on this one day and not enough on any other day because too quickly we often times take love for granted. We don’t say the word out of fear. Maybe we fear rejection, but it’s also pretty daunting to just say it out loud or to another person. Once you say it you can never take it back, but sometimes you might be surprised by the response you hear back.

If these couple of weeks have taught me anything it is that the strength in the people I have in my life has built me up so that I could be strong again for the people that care about me and will always always be there. Every now and then, I believe in promoting selfishness as long as it’s healthy. I’ve had enough of that and now it is time for me to be whole-heartedly selfless and to give strength to those who need it most from me.

If I could advise you all on anything or if you could take something away from this blog at all it would be to not wait until Valentine’s Day to tell someone you love them. We shouldn’t be waiting another second to say the things that matter most.

My prayers and thoughts are with a very special family today.

Wedding Mondays

I honestly could not have chosen a better wedding video to feature for this Valentine’s Day week. Emily Schuman has been a blogging icon to me for years and earlier this year she married her fiance Geoffrey in the most classic and vintage inspired wedding I’ve ever seen. These two love bugs are adorable and I think if I could have a wedding like this filled with such romance and love, I would be a very happy girl someday.


By the way, this video was done by Shark Pig!

Every time I catch this commercial on TV, my heart melts a little.

Some Men Like Valentine’s Day

Like many little girls growing up, I always believed that Valentine’s Day was for the ladies! It was the one day that girls would acquire something sparkly, nibble into some chocolates, or even receive a bouquet of flowers. (This doesn’t happen in real life) For some reason, no one ever told me that guys  were getting something out of it too. Of course, as I grew up I knew better. I knew that if I were to ever celebrate Valentine’s Day that it wouldn’t be all about me and that I would treat the relationship as being mutual. It still bothers me to this day to watch reality television shows in which girls expect to be treated like princesses at all times. I’m looking at you Heidi Montag.

I’m pretty proud of myself that I can still believe that chivalry isn’t dead, but also that girls can split meals, ask a guy out on a date first, or even WHOA treat their guys out to a date sometimes. It’s what keeps things exciting, right?

The point of this is that Valentine’s Day is a celebration for both you AND your significant other so enjoy it and girls – allow yourself to do something nice for your guy (not just on V-day) but other days too.

What To Wear: Valentine’s Day

Camilla and Marc Adaptation Dress – $509.06

Happy month of love y’all! The big day is just around the corner and whether or not you’re expecting something or just letting yourself go and enjoying the moment, Valentine’s Day is a day where you should feel good about the way you look and for your significant other or whatever they call them these days. Typically, I prefer the red family – pink, coral, light red, etc. only because I don’t LOVE the color red. However, we’re gonna diverge a bit. Here are some of my favorite picks so if you don’t have anything special to wear yet, I guess you had better get on it…

It’s A Valentine’s Day Post!

If you haven’t gotten on top of your gifts for Valentine’s Day this year yet, then you better get moving. Me, being the V-day rookie that I am, completely dropped the ball this week with my midterms and didn’t even realize that ordering Shari’s Berries later would result in a higher shipping cost. No strawberries for Katie this year unfortunately. Of course, I think my friend Alyssa promptly put me in my place when she asked me, “Can’t you just make those yourself?” Touche, Alyssa. Touche.

I meant to make this post a lot earlier for all of you, but life gets in the way sometimes. If you were relying on me to help you out with what to get for Valentine’s Day this year, then I apologize.

Here’s what you can do though if you’re sluffing:

The Stranger via Cupcake Royale

1. Desserts are  great. Shari’s Berries is still awesome and if I could suck up my stubborness, I would dish out that shipping fee, but I can’t. Another alternative is Cupcake Royale’s Deathcake. The deathcake is injected with chocolaty goodness and Stumptown’s espresso ganache.  YUM.

2. Another alternative that I wanted to take advantage of this year was making Valentine’s Day cards. This used to be my favorite thing as a child, buying the cutest Valentine’s Day cards to give to all of my classmates and making sure that the best messages went to my best friends while the generic, “You are sweet!” ones went to everyone else. The makers wouldn’t have made more of the  generic ones and less of the better ones if that wasn’t their point. As young children, they taught us how to play favorites…Anyways! I wanted to make cards for all of my co-workers this year and since all of us are a pretty silly bunch, I knew they would appreciate it. The valentine above was made by a lovely lady named Beth who has constructed a number of cards for the holiday this year revolving around pop culture subjects.

3. This little item is called the “Smitten Snuggle” and it is designed for the couple that still wants to hold hands with each other while braving the winter weather. It’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
