Ah, another consumerist oriented and entirely arbitrary, manipulative and shallow Hallmark holiday!

Hearts. Flowers. Candy. Chocolate.  All that crap.  Blah blah blah.  Alrighty then!  Now that we are finished with the mandatory mentioning of the Hallmark holiday today is, we can get on with our coffee!

On the flip side however, I got a really cool travel mug from the Husband for V-day.  Thankyougod he finally realized about 4 or 5 years ago to stop buying me chocolates when he's known for over 20 years; I hate chocolate.  He discovered shopping at Starbucks for birthdays and holidays a few years ago.  

While I'd be content with nothing on V-day - (no seriously... I'm completely good with not celebrating holidays that thrive on people feeling compelled to buy crap for someone on this day purely to avoid looking like an ass to everyone else if you don't) -  getting coffee based products is always a good choice on any day.

  1. Shannon has school tonight. So we went for dinner Saturday night. I bought these authentic (had to use that word because I know you'll know) Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. Not sure what icing usually goes with Red Velvet cake, but I love cream cheese icing. I hid them as I came in the door, told her I had red and white roses for her, and gave her the cupcakes. She starts killing herself laughing. Says you'll see why when I give you my gift. I had to wait until just before we went out for dinner the next day. Dark chocolate hearts with a red velvet truffle center (and again tastes authentic). Coincidence or fate? We traded cards Sunday. LOL, so it is just another day to celebrate being in love with each other, not because of some dead Christian saint. (looks around nervously, waiting for lightning bold).....


Thanks for sharing morning coffee with me!
