Happy Friday! First and foremost, I did not actually have an official date this Valentine’s Day, therefore my best friend Emily and I went out to dinner together because she didn’t have one, either. But like a regular date/Valentine’s Day, I surprised her with flowers! She was really shocked, but loved them. I forgot to buy a vase to go along with them so we had to use a Marco’s cup as a vase. This is the way it turned out:
I did good, right?
Although the Marco’s cup takes away from it, I still think I did alright. After my Chinese class last night we went to dinner at Olive Garden! Olive Garden is LITERALLY my favorite restaurant! We had a blast, and ended up coming back to Butler and she helped me with my laundry! It wasn’t such a bad holiday for either of us after all!
Thursday is Valentine’s Day, and although I don’t necessarily have a Valentine’s Date – well, except for a friend date with my best friend Emily – I’m going to celebrate by giving out cards!
Valentine’s Day makes me feel very nostalgic. I remember back home when it was Valentine’s Day in elementary school that we would pass out Valentine’s Day cards in class and it was great getting a personal “card” (always premade ones, usually spongebob or something – you get the point) from every in the class as well as giving out personal cards to everyone else, too. This Valentine’s Day I do want to do this once again with the friends I’ve made at Butler – except for this time with humorous Valentine’s Day cards from Parks and Recreation! I found a variety of these online, whether it be through Instagram or Tumblr, there are a ton of great cards that bring back a lot of memories, too! Although these are from Parks and Recreation, there are some other cards I plan on giving out to my closest friends – you should use some of these, too, if you like the show!
Now there are honestly plenty of other ones I would use, too, but I just have a new-found love of Parks and Recreation so all of these are completely appropriate. I’ll probably spend most of my free time on Thursday catching up to where the season is now, but I don’t know anyone who has watched it that doesn’t love it! If you haven’t watched it, YOU NEED TO. That is all.
