It’s all hearts and flowers this week as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching.
Here at More Cowbell, we like to laugh and help you avoid epic V-Day Fails (like last year’s “Get Off Me) at the same time.
Between the More Cowbell posse and the Love Doctors over at Bayard & Holmes, you should be in great shape by The Big Day.
Remember, we share because we care.
So here’s the deal: If someone really loves you, you could give them wind in a paper bag and they’d treasure it.
Stop stressing. A stressed you is a cranky you. And a cranky you is not romantic.
My top 3 recommendations for Valentine’s Day success:
- Don’t forget the card. It’s the most important part. There’s a reason why this is called the “Hallmark Holiday.”
- Keep it small. A coupon book of Honey-Do’s, a box of chocolates, flowers, a romantic picnic. Your gift doesn’t have to be over the top, it just has to be sincere.
- Keep it personal. A picture that you framed is going to mean more than a box of candy. Personal gestures make your loved one’s heart melt.
Nothing says “I Love You” like a personal gesture, UNLESS… (put down your drink)
…it’s this one.
If the two of you aren’t alone, public nakedness–especially with that back–will always equal an Epic Valentine’s Day fail. (And WHO did this to him?? I’m dying to know.)
p.s. Kristen Lamb suggested I add a caption to this photo but we couldn’t decide between “50 Shades of HEY SAILOR!” and “I Love You Back.”
We’d like to hear about your top Valentine “fails.” Was it committed by you or perpetrated upon you? How do you plan to spend Valentine’s Day this year? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!
