Oh my! Valentine's Day is just two little days away and I'm so excited. Dustin is not usually very romantic in the gesture sense and Valentine's Day is one of the few days of the year where he has no excuse. I will not have any of the, "but I didn't know what to get yous," or "I was thinking about doing (insert romantic, kind, loving idea), but I didn't think you'd like its." He is required to get me something or or do something nice for me.

We have gone over this MANY times in the eight years that we've been together and I always tell him that I don't need anything fancy. I don't need diamonds or four dozen red roses. I don't need (or want) a $300 Coach bag or dinner at the fanciest restaurant in San Francisco. I just need a reminder. A hand drawn card. A single, scrappy flower from the garden of the lady next door. A surprise movie rental and a package of my favorite candy. It really is the little thoughts that counts with me.

He never disappoints and I'm so looking forward to see what he comes up with this time! *swoon*

I thought I'd leave you with some lovely eye candy.
Feast your eyes:

Pretty Valentines from Hello!Lucky.

Scary Teddy on my dresser.
I decided that a striped bow tie and construction paper garland were in order.

Our room looked so empty with out the Christmas tree, so I declared that form now on (until Dustin gets terribly sick of it) it shall be the Holiday tree. I hand made the pompoms and pinwheels. SO much fun. Recycled red glass balls help fill the tree in and a cute little sock monkeyette sits on top:

Super cute vintage Alice in Wonderland hair bands from VintageRemnants :

A beautiful Valentine's print from Daniel Cook.

The description reads: "Sometimes Cupid misses. There is only one obvious solution. Get really close for the next shot."

What better place to gaze at my snow white (a.k.a. pale) face than Anthropologie's Who's The Fairest Mirror. Does anyone have an extra $148 laying around? Goodness gracious... I could buy fourteen eyeshadows from M.A.C. for the price of this mirror!

I do that -- measure the cost of things in eyeshadows. It's a really good way to curb your spending... that is unless you're at the M.A.C. store and then all bets are off. ;]

I adore you anyways. ;]

Actually.. I'm REALLY bad with mistypes AND my 'r' key is going out. Half the time it doesn't click and I end up with a lot of 'ead' and 'eally' words.
