I think by now we know, I am not a normal girl. I’m kind of weird. So it is no surprise that my first Valentine’s Day with a real live valentine of my very own didn’t really go as all the hype led me to believe it would. And you know why? Because I didn’t want it to! I am not one of those broads who expects a fancy dinner, and a bouquet of roses. I asked that if Chris was going to get me something, that he get me something I can actually use, rather than something that was going to be dead in a week. I also told him that I would rather make something amazing at home, with food we already have, than to go out and spend money. Something homemade and yummy for dinner, and cuddling up to watch a movie together sounds like such a better date to me.
So what would I put clothes on and leave the house for? It takes a lot, so…
- A trip to Jurassic Park. Yeah, I know it doesn’t exist! But man, if it did, you can bet I’d be all over it. I would risk being eaten by a T-Rex to see those amazing creatures in the flesh.
- A candle lit picnic. Yeah, so that one is a little more attainable. Picnics actually exist. But in the north east? It’s 31° out folks! I think it’s safe to say that’s a no-go! But at least we wouldn’t need an ice chest.
- A night at the theatre. I am completely obsessed with live theatre, and I am far too poor to be able to afford to go. It doesn’t matter what the show is. Musical, drama, comedy. There’s just a huge thrill in seeing someone have one shot to nail it, and when they do it’s such a strong sense of victory for them.
There you have it. This is what it takes to get me excited about leaving the house! I hope those of you with sweethearts had a great Valentine’s Day! And those of you without, I hope you uncorked a bottle of wine and enjoyed your night anyway.
