You make me happy.







The crazy peeps in charge of Optometry School decided to put finals week right on Valentine's—or was it the crazy peeps in charge of Valentine's Day who decided to put Valentine's right in the middle of finals? Either way, Jas has been M I A lately and has warned that he will continue to be until next Friday.


Bummer dude.


But don't think for a second this got me down! I've been pumped about this little lover's holiday since January was still in its early twenties. There was no WAY I was about to let those pesky finals get in the way of a little celebration! I snagged my boy right after his morning test and we found our way to the Corner Bakery for lunch and it was deee-lectable.


Jas even wore his red "Valentine's shirt" (he made that one up himself) to get in the V-Day spirit—and so I painted my fingernails red and wore a pink shirt to one-up him, because that's how we roll. But he thinks he wins because he's got red hair. Dang those genetics!  But I wore the coziest pumps in the wooooorld (seriously. Urban Outfitters, on sale, GO!) so I still felt like a winner.


Then Jas went back to school to study, came home for a very quick dinner and scurried right back to the school again. So I popped pop-corn and invited myself over to Stephanie's (the one who introduced me to the good cupcakes) for a Lonely Girl's Valentine's/Bachelor party. It was fun and we laughed and made snarky comments to the TV like, boy! that fella sweats a LOT on his forehead. And what the.... ? Did she just lay down on the limo seat and rock back and forth. Caaaa-raaaay-cray!


OH! and here is my newest most very favorite song these days............ Love it or hate it, it'll probably just get stuck in your head anyway. It's happy and it makes me happy and I really like happy songs. So push play and dance in your chair a little bit and have a Happy Taco Tuesday!!!!!
