Of course, it's easy to celebrate when you get fabulous packages in the mail.
I participated in Amanda's V-day swap and received some pretty great stuff from Lauren. Homemade bath fizzies and a tiny pot of honey and the most awesome card. Yes, that card has a skyline cut out of a Japanese newspaper. It's like she already knew me when she made it.

And I guess D was feeling bad for living it up in Dubai while I have to go to work everyday, because a little package arrived for me from Etsy seller ellainaboutique and it contained both the hoodie and the tank top that I had been coveting! P.S. They are amazing and so soft and drapey.
Obviously I didn't wait until Saturday to open anything. Waiting is not my forte.
I'll leave you with a list of my favorite things to do to celebrate/mock.
1. Go for an evening walk past fancy restaurants and look for awkward couples who are clearly in the early stages of their relationship and felt obliged to go out even though they might not really be feeling it and now they are kind of uncomfortable. Feel infinitely superior.
2. Break out a split of champagne (or a bottle, depending on your alcohol tolerance) and toast yourself. Allow the champagne to take effect and dance crazily around your apartment.
3. Rent embarrassing movies and wallow on the couch while eating cupcakes. Deny this the next day. Or admit it. Whatever works for you. I find that coconut cupcakes are really the best for wallowing.
4. Order the cheapest Chinese take out you can find and have an Arrested Development marathon. Feel free to substitute your favorite show. (This is actually what D and I do, the years we actually manage to spend the evening together).
I think I'll be partaking of 1, 2 and 3 this year. Anyone else have brilliant plans?
