Yackety-yak: Valentine's Day

Hey sugar plums! I am super busy but just had to wish each and every one of you dolls a very Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it is totally grand AND I would love if you pop by tomorrow and let me know how you celebrated it. Whether it was snuggled with a good book, cuddled up to a movie, or out with your main squeeze, this inquiring mind wants to know.

Hate Valentine's Day? i swim for oceans has a great Anti-Valentine's Day list of book love gone oh-so wrong.

  2. Right back at you, Juju. =)

    Valentine's Day... well, so far I've gotten bangs (YAY! been wanting to do that for ages) and tonight... I'll be home probably curled up on the couch and watch an episode or two of Bones. ;D

    1. Oh my gosh! How exciting! Bangs are such fun and they change your look so much! Congrats. And honestly, I ADORE Bones so I think that's a fab plan.

  13. I'm afraid I feel the same as Melissa. For me, every day of the year should be made special with the one that you love - not just the one day. I won't deny that I do like getting chocolates though... Happy Valentines, Juju! :)

    1. I feel ya :)
      So perhaps the best part of Valentine's day is the 1/2 chocolates the following day? :)

    1. What did the Kirk clan do to celebrate? For some reason I imagine you guys baking cookies together and playfully fighting over someone eating too much of the dough.

  20. Thank you ladies for all your awesome comments :)

    Mr. Whimsy and I had a lovely special dinner together. He gave me a super pretty vintage lacey silver ring and some adorable pink ear muffs.

    Confession: I passed out on the sofa with Baby Whimsy on my chest shortly afterwards. LOL What can I say? Our cutie pootie is a sleep robber and it caught up with me.
