Happy Valentine's Day!!

Sooo I know I'm single, and I'm supposed to be all I hate Valentine's Day blah blah blah, but in all honesty, Valentine's Day is kind of one of my favorite holidays. You get to tell people you love them, and have them not get creeped out. Plus, I'm sure that all of us will have at least one person wish us a Happy Valentine's Day. Even if it is just Mom. 

Thanks for the Valentine's Day gift, Mom!


In honor of Valentine's Day, I just had to celebrate in cliche single style, and go see a chick flick with a best friend. This year's pick was:


If you like movies that will get you all sappy and give you chills and convince you that you will eventually find yourself in the greatest love story of all time, go see it. I happen to love those movies, so it's a safe guess that I was a fan. Plus Rachel McAdams is one of my favorite actresses of all time, and Channing Tatum is, well, Channing Tatum. 

Katie and I in line for the movie. Yupp, there was a line. And it was long.

And in unrelated news, I officially became a blogger this week. Why you might ask? Because I received this in the mail:



Yes, folks, that would be my first Birchbox. I gave in to the trend, and I'm so excited that I did. 

Let's take a look inside, shall we?


1. Supersmile Powdered Mouthrinse

2. Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum

3. Eye Rock Designer Liner

4. Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

5. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

I'm so excited to try all of these new things, and I will definitely be back to share my thoughts. $10 a month for all these fun samples? Well, heck yes I'm down for that. 

Happy Valentines Day! Go tell someone you love them.

Was this your first Birchbox!? I just got my first one and I wasn't a huge fan of it! I am hoping next months is better. :)

I use to hate this holiday as a single gal.-- Hated seeing all the flowers, pictures, stories...*PUKE*. I think it's great that you went to see a movie with your bestie.

I use to get Birchbox all the time. I recently cancelled it but it was always fun to get my box in the mail. :)

I'm on the fence with Birchbox. Some people love it and some people aren't big fans. Let me know how you like the stuff.

You have a super sweet momma! That's some awesome stuff!

I really want to see The Vow. I've been in lust with Channing for YEARS!

Thanks for linking up pretty girl!!

I so want to see that movie. Both of those actors are awesome! And yey for mom's! My mom got me a present too, unfortunately it was very similar to what my hubby got me. I shouldn't have told them the same thing :(. boo on me :)

Moms always give the best Valentine's Day gifts, don't they? Hopefully Princess Nagger will be saying that about me years from now. ;)

I really want to see that movie - I'm a sucker for movies like that, and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum as the stars is a bonus. :)

Where have I been? I've never heard of Birchbox. Looks cool though!

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

I always buy my girls a Valentine's Day gift. Seeing how much you love getting yours from your Mom I don't think I will ever stop. No one loves you like your Mamma, I promise you!

I took my oldest to see The Vow Friday night, it was good, I didn't care for the ending I wanted more but since it's based on a true story I goes it is what it is.

Thanks for linking up with us, IA and I xoxo you!
