Cute, Punny Valentine's Day Gifts and "Big" News!

You may be able to gather from the title of this post that I'm not sharing a recipe with you today. Instead, I have other fun things to share!! Remember earlier in the week when I gave you some last minute gift ideas for Valentine's Day? If you remember, they were rather "punny" gifts that involved plays on words. If you don't know me, you may not know that I looove puns. All my friends and family know how much I love puns; it's kind of one of "my things." So, I have to warn you that what I'm about to share is incredibly punny. You may groan slightly or wince a bit at the extreme punny-ness, but you can't say I didn't warn you. ;) I put together several mini gifts for Mike to show him how much I love him (in a super dorky way). Check 'em out!


Fiber One bars.

Echinacea Complete Care tea.

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.


SoBe Life Water fuji apple pear water.

Target brand (Up & Up) hand sanitizer.

Bananas, obviously.

I had so much fun putting these together!! I did put these together rather last minute, so the little signs weren't all that fancy or nice looking. But in the end that didn't really matter. What mattered was the messages I was sending! The dorky, punny love messages. :) I tried to keep most of the gifts on the healthier side too. There were plenty of candies I could have used to do this, but I opted for items that are a bit better for you. I honestly could have found so many more items for this fun little project! I basically just walked around Target looking at the names of various products and brainstorming possible phrases I could make with them!

Now I'll move on to the "big" news I referenced above. There are two things I did this week that are rather substantial.

1) I joined the gym! I haven't belonged to a gym in probably about 3 years... I've pretty much only been running for the past few years (with other activities like ultimate frisbee mixed in from time to time). That's not a lot of variety! Although these activities have kept me fit and healthy, there was something inside me telling me I needed a change. So, I took the plunge and joined the gym! And I got an excellent deal on my membership cost too. I am psyched about it!

Love this.

2) I bought a new CAR!!! Well, the car itself is used but it's new to me. Woohoo!!

My new wheels:

It's a 2008 Subaru Outback. I will be saying farewell to my current car, a 1998 Subaru Forester, next week when I go pick up the new car. My Forester has been great, but at 144,000 miles and 14 years old, it was time to move on... Sad but exciting!

So, that's my "big" news. :)

Happy Friday, friends! Enjoy your weekend!
