Happy Valentine's Day!

Pin It
I am not a girl who usually gets excited about V-Day. Personally, I think it is way more important to cherish and appreciate the ones you love everyday than any gifts that you can find on V-day. My husband and I do little things for each other each year. I am not too upset if we don't do anything at all. Instead of pulling our hairs trying to decide what to get for each other, we decided to take little one on a ski trip for the first time as our V-Day gift. Although, there were a few tears dropped on the slopes, she enjoyed the trip so much. She got up after falling and determined to try it again. That's my girl! At the end of the day, she went down the hill without any problems.

{My little girl is in action}

I don't expect anything today at all. To my surprise, hubby came home with flowers, chocolate and a shopping bag from Ann Taylor. What else could I ask for? I am not a big of fan of roses. I don't know why. Tulips are my favorite flower. Last month, we went shopping and I felt in love with the Petite Silk Silent Clusters Sheath Dress. Although, it is really pretty and perfect for the upcoming Spring, the price tag wasn't very appealing to me. It is way more than what I am willing to pay for a dress. I totally forgot about it until he brought it home tonight.


He bought a size 0 regular and of course it is way too big on me. We just reordered the dress in 00P and hopefully, it'll arrive on time for our date night this Saturday. Don't forget to use the code "10000000121" for additional 30% off. Ann Taylor is also running a free shipping promotion on everything (ends tonight). I told him even though I love everything but it was unnecessary to spend $$ on V-day for me. His response was "This isn't for V-day, this is just a way to say thank you for everything". My heart melted.


Happy Valentine's Day <3

Awwww your husband is so thoughtful. 3 of your favorite things, what more could a girl ask for?! I'm DYING to see you in the AT dress. That is the one I've been itching to get myself too. Reminds me of a subtle leopard/watercolor print from last season that I totally missed out on. Happy Valentine's Day, Sydney!

Aww your hubby is so sweet to you! That's nice that you and your family all went skiing together - I'm not big on celebrating Valentine's either :)

Your husband sounds like a wonderful man, how thoughtful and generous! My favorite flower is the tulip too (and they're so easy to grow) benefit! I hope you do a post in your new dress, I haven't been to AT lately, so I haven't seen their new arrivals.


Thanks ladies for your sweet comments. I certainly feel loved by my family. My dress is on its way. I can't wait to try it on.
