To prepare for this magical holiday, I have already begun a mental list of things I would like to do. Here are a few:
- Hand make Valentine's Day cards for all the special people in my life. I want to set aside a craft day or night, probably with cupcakes and wine nearby, and Roman Holiday on in the background. I'm not super crafty so I'll probably have to resort to using tips from other people. I came across this site today that has some cute ideas, but I'll most likely end up making big glitter hearts on card stock, maybe dab some puffy paint on there, and then throw confetti in the envelopes so you get a glittery confetti explosion when you open your card!! Then I'll come over and help clean up the mess.

hearts from Target!
- Valentine's Day Party. The moment I moved into my new place, I decided I wanted to throw a fancy V-Day party with pink champagne and pretty decorations and a new party dress. But that might not end up materializing this year...we'll see.

really sparkly red accessories.
- Cupcakes. This I have really planned in advance for. After seeing these gold glitter edible sprinkles in my friend Tara's gift guide, I knew I had to have them. To my sheer delight I saw that they sold pink hearts as well (!!!) Done and done. And I found the perfect cake mix this weekend. Pics to follow.
|I can't decide which makes me more excited:|
the gold stars or the pink hearts.
- Plan the perfect outfit and nail polish color for the holiday. Or whatever day my date night ends up falling on since it's on a Monday this year.

That is all I have for now, but the countdown is on and I can't wait to see all the heart day related blog posts in the weeks to come!
