Valentines Day = a perfectly valid reason to have a daughter

Happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope you all enjoyed your day. It was 15 degrees and snowing here, and I spent the day accompanying Miss Buxom to her third audition in three days, then driving her back to northwest Michigan. This morning we went out to breakfast together and bought some dorm supplies, but on Valentine's night, I was KNACKERED. I felt vaguely cheered by the red coverlets on the beds at my hotel, but that was about it for Valentine's Day and me.

However, I do not repine. First of all, last week my husband remembered that it was the 30th anniversary of our first date, and gave me a couple of little presents. How's that for a class act? And look what he's married to, poor man. Not only did I forget our first date, I gave him nothing for Valentine's Day, unless a loaf of sour dough bread from a local Panera Bread counts.

Under those circumstances, how could I feel neglected?

On top of all that, I got to buy my daughter all the cutesie, too-young-for-me products that I, in my childishness, still covet. Want to see?

throat lozenges, candy, Korean Alice in Wonderland cushion foundation, custom iPhone with Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse lip balms from Japan, candy




A less washed-out photograph of the Alice in Wonderland cushion foundation, as well as the rest of the collection. SO CUTE.




Seriously, I'm swooning over heah. Let's have another look at these Minnie Mouse lip balms, shall we?

OMG! SQUEEE!!!


I need to grow up.

So did anyone out there do anything—how shall I put this—more sophisticated for Valentine's Day? Something involving candlelit dinners, LBDs, perfume, and champagne? Fill me in so I can live vicariously.

  1. Sorry .... hubby is moving his office and that is what he was doing on the weekend so ..... we exchanged cards , I gave him a shirt (he hates to shop so that pleases him) and I got to buy online from Luckyscent ! Yeah ... the postage is $$$ to my neck of the woods but they have such beautiful perfumes!
    My 5 year old grand daughter would just love those lippies!

    1. But ... but ... what perfume did you buy? Inquiring minds, etc.

  2. I made chili and watched Downton Abbey with my cat, so....yeah. No. That's all I got.

    1. Actually, that sounds lovely. I haven't been able to cuddle with a cat since I married Mr. Buxom, because he's allergic. I make him wear something fuzzy and purr while I stroke his back, but it's not the same.

  3. My husband let me sleep in on Saturday morning while he cleaned house (including doing the laundry) -- best Valentine's Day present EVER.

    1. I agree. Don't say it with flowers; say it with clean, folded laundry.

  4. Got a bunch of tulips early in the morning. Lunch with the in-laws. Yeah, go on and envy me.

  5. I sold Girl Scout cookies for 4 hours with my Daisy Scout. And then I made my hubby take me to see Deadpool which was my one request. He and the kids did spoil me with a beautiful heart necklace (the 6 year old girl's idea). And I didn't do a dang thing for him.
