Valentine's Recap...

I may have to rethink my whole "eschewing Valentine's Day" position. I made a bigger deal out of the holiday I typically do, and I have to admit that it was kind of fun...




Valentine's Day Card

I had fun making Valentine's Cards - I took a whole passel of those hearts that I couldn't stop knitting and felted 'em right up. Quite gratifying...




I can't decide quite what I think of this - Schecky took a shoe box into school last week, to decorate for use as a Valentine's mail box. This is what he brought home last night:

Should I Be Concerned About This????


My son.

The "LUV DOG"?

I'm not really going to sweat this one. I'm telling myself that it's because there was a dog on the box (and aren't I the generous mommy, to let him have the shoe box from my way cute RocketDogs?) and not that he's got a street name and a rep for cruising the ladies of the ATL...

(I am going to keep my eye on this though... Sigh. That boy of mine can be a carnival ride. Maybe it would be easier if he were a "sit around and drink some tea kind of guy...")




And, even though I yelled at Bubba that if he came home with any overpriced, schmaltzy Valentine's crap I would kick his ass (because I'm just all romantic that way) he came home with a present anyway.

And a little part of me was cross that he bastardized my holiday - my simple, pure, not-giving-into-commercialism holiday.

But Bubba doesn't fight fair. He preyed on my love of the small and the square and brought home this:

Happy, Happy...


Now I ask you, how am I supposed to stay mad at that? I mean, not only is it small and square, but it's PINK, too.

Plus, I'm more than half in love with it already. I named it "Fresh, Hot, Small, Square"* and I can tell we're going to be friends...



*Seriously, this is not quite as dorky as it sounds. You have to give them some sort of a name to register them and set them up with iTunes...

Yeah.

It's still pretty dorky, isn't it?

Nice fresh, hot, small, square. Bubba and the Luv Dog know how to treat the ladies on VDay! (Okay, seriously, I'm cracking up over here!)

Cheers!

Oh my goodness, this post has me laughing. The "luv dog", watch out Momma!

bekka said...

wow. you? eschewing? great word, btw. just not used enough in blogs, or real life, much these days.

hmmm, loved the felted heart cards, they're wonderful. but you know that!

Scheck's shoe box? oh my. love that Luv Dog. or should it be Dawg? ya'll are in Ga., after all. but is that something he calls himself or a name the girls gave him?

is that the new shuffle? very cute. i didn't think you liked pink. for some reason, i have you dressed in neutrals all the live long day?

oh, and here's a random thought: what if all the people who left comments on your posts were rebecca derivatives? wouldn't that be bekkalicious?

spoiled rotten little brat.

Kate said...

dhcMine's called 'Marvin'. You know, from Hitchikers' Guide. and my computer is called 'Eddie'. From the same...

I've been quoting the 'drink some tea etc' since you posted that. Its relevant in a surprising number of situations...

Rohanknitter said...

Good, you may be a V-day convert yet! I don't like the overpriced roses and heart shaped boxes of candy aspect either. Gag. But little felted heart cards! Gotta love it. It can be a fun way to brighten up a dreary month.

Chara said...

As much as I am not a valentine's day fan, I have to say that your little present from Bubba is definitely not one to reject! Very cute! Oh and I have to agree with Capello, isn't that your second ipod! Hmm... she might have a point ;)

Okay, that is a lot of exclamations in only a few little sentences! (I think I will stop now!)

Kim said...

LUV DOG!!! HAA!!!! Oh my gosh you are going to have a play-a on your hands. Watch out, Atlanta!

Debbie said...

The "Luv Dog"! How funny is that!!!! I'm sure his teacher was cracking up.


The cards look great. Might have to follow your lead next year and make some to mail out.

Kelli said...

Okay, you had the best Valentine's day yet! So, so cool. :)

kathryn said...

I seem to be seeing those cute felted heart cards posted all over the blogs in my favorites...It's neat to see how things seem to intertwine. I do so enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for sharing!
