Chocolate Day 2016.


I think like everyone else in the world, we don't really care about Valentines day..it's cutesy and all but really, it's just another day. I don't dislike it by any means, it just seems like one of those forced holidays you know? I'd much rather celebrate our love when our anniversary comes around. That day means 1,000x more to me than any Valentines day would. And really, is it not just a holiday to eat candy? (Or write love stories?) Is that not the message they send us early on in Elementary school?? It's basically another version of Halloween, right? Maybe it's a big deal for newer couples when it's their first chance to express their lovey dovey side, but...we old.

We said were not going to spend any money on gifts this year, but of course John never follows those rules, so he got me something. (Ordered it in bed Sunday morning from his phone lol, but still, it was sweet.) I didn't get him anything though...I just took it as an opportunity to bake. If you follow me on snap, I made ^those yesterday. SLUTTY BROWNIES! Basically a cookie/oreo/brownie bar. I've always wanted to make these and Valentines day seemed like a good opportunity. I kept telling John all last week that I was going to make him slutty brownies, and I think he had a totally different idea in his head, haha. (Not sure what, but not this lol.) They were pretty good, BUT instead of using chocolate chips in the cookie dough I used pink m&m's and I guess I didn't realize when the bag said "strawberry" it really meant strawberry flavored. So it left a weird berry taste. John said it tasted like Captain Crunch, you know with the berries, and once he said that that's all I could taste. But they were still good and I ate about 4 before I packed them all up and made John take them all to work with him today, haha.

 (Adapted the recipe from whatsgabycooking.com. Follow her on snapchat, she's one of my favorites.)

We usually buy tons of Valentines candy because it's so tempting (isn't it?? the stores are just ridiculous) but we did so good this year...until late Saturday. We drove around all day looking for kitchen barstools (we literally have nowhere to sit and eat here yet, I usually sit on the counter top and John stands, it's pretty funny actually) but we didn't find anything, so we ended up stopping at Walmart to buy candy so it wasn't a total waste of an outing. John got himself an assorted chocolate heart which for some reason I thought was so funny, and then he left me this...


Half of them, so I could try them all too. (Or most of them, lol.) 

But that was really it. I didn't even get him a card this year which is really, really lazy for me. (Trying not to spend money, and cards are stupid overpriced are they not?!) I didn't even take one selfie of us, which is also really lazy of me but my face is breaking out like crazy right now...maybe it's all the chocolate? (And I keep crying like everyday because of stupid things that I'm not even going to talk about here because it's so embarrassing and stupid, so my eyes are like red all the time.) So besides venturing out to look for barstools, we just stayed at home and watched way too much tv. I think we were in bed all weekend before 9:30pm. On Saturday night I reached over and high-five John "Happy Valentines Day" because I thought it was so funny that we are literally the most boring people on the planet. We really need to work on that...next weekend maybe, haha.

So here's to a healthier week! I still have Oreos here, so I'm sure I'll finish those off, but after that, no more. And I've been to the gym TWICE in the past week, and I'm super, super proud and want to keep it up so maybe I need to make myself accountable here somehow? I don't know. And Teddy's 1st Birthday is later on this week. Anyone have any ideas how to celebrate? We're probably going to get him ice cream...but I feel like I need to do more, because I'm crazy. So crazy in fact that I emailed his breeder last week asking if she had any baby pictures of him.....she's "looking" haha. (I won't get crazy enough to bother her again about it though, I'm sure she has a life and all breeding dogs.) 


Until next time Valentines Day! I'll remember to at least make dinner next year..

  1. Jon and I didn't do anything for Valentine's Day either! Sometimes we do and sometimes we don't. But this year, I can't wear anything fun and decided there was no point. So we cleaned our house and then he went and saved his friend whose truck broke down. Good job on the gym twice! I'm so over going right now but maybe I'll make it once or twice this week! I think I went once last week. I would totally leave Jon half eaten chocolates like that and then he would think I'm ridiculous for doing that.

    1. I guess sometimes we do, sometimes we don't too. But this year, it just felt like not that important. Last year it seemed cool because it was our "first married Valentines day" but this year, eh. Nothing special. Next year yours will be super special though, dress that baby up in a little red bow tie or something and take him on a date ;)

  2. Yesterday was Valentines Day? JK, we just don't celebrate either. Didn't even buy chocolate, although we bought oreos at the store yesterday andddd I ate 8. I did it throughout the day, but uh, 8? LOL. Way to go getting out to the gym. I have been a straight bum lately. Anything good to watch? Work was cancelled for me today so sitting watching Chelsea Does.

    1. 8 oreos is nothing girl. Plus it will all just go to your bump anyways ;) I didn't love "Chelsea Does" as much as I thought I would. I liked the last one about drugs the most lol. And why are there only 4 episodes???! What kind of show is that. And don't even tell me that work was cancelled for the weather? Was it?! It's so fricking cold. Ted goes on like 4 walks a day and I'm like not happening today, not even gonna try.

    2. Of course work was cancelled for the "snow." Free day off because clearly nothing happened its just insanely cold!! Yeah, Chelsea Does is not as good as I was expecting with her. I haven't watched the drug one just the first two. Maybe I'll watch that one just because it might be better LOL.

  3. We're not into Valentine's Day either. We pretty much just order food in and watch Netflix, and I'm kind of sad we didn't this year since we went out on Thursday and Saturday so we felt like we needed to save money. I want those slutty brownies! I've wanted to make them forever. I also think that tonight after the gym I'm going to go see if candy is on clearance yet (counterproductive but I don't care!) haha.

    1. Hahaha Oh I just got back from the store and ALL the candy was on sale. So stupid isn't it? It'd be smart to just celebrate Valentines Day the day after lol.

  5. I saw your snap and it made me want to eat those SO BAD! They looked so good!! hahah that is also totally something I would do, buy strawberry M&M's on accident. But at least it was cute and perfect for Valentine's :) Did John tell you what he got you? I want to know now!! And that's so funny you asked for Ted's baby pictures haha I wonder if the breeder just just going to google "baby golden lab" and send one over if she can't find any ;) I saw your snap story today about looking up dog party ideas on pinterest and holy cow people go all out!!! Did you get any good ideas?! xo
