I’ve given Flowers, Shari’s Berries, chocolates, stuffed animals, cute jammies, suggestive tee-shirts, cute tee-shirts, lollipops, lovey, dovey heart-shaped cards, funny cards, sexy cards, I’ve sung a song, I’ve written poems and I’ve even written a little book.
I’ve baked cakes, I’ve made brownies, I bought sugar cookies and I even made heart-shaped fudge once! I’ve done coupons for a back rub, coupons for a foot rub and coupons for…well, for none of your business…yet here I am, again, without one stinking idea left on how to make this Valentines day…ya know, “special.”
And then…it happened. Someone just had to remind me that there is still one thing I haven’t done in a long time. Dress up. No, no, no…not like “that!” The last time I wore a head-to-toe leather cat woman outfit, I stuck to the seat in my car. (Tip…DO NOT wear anything leather in Phoenix in a 115 degree weather!) No, this time around we’re talking about something a little more normal. Something where I could find Valentine’s Day costumes for me!
Something that a wife of almost 19 years and the mother of six kids could wear and not look like…well…like I’ve had six kids!
It’s time for me to remember that costumes are not just for kids at Halloween anymore. As a friend of mine just reminded me, being older does not mean I’ll look ridiculous or even slutty.
Even though last I heard husbands still like that, no matter how thin, or not thin, their wives may be.
And as was shown to me from an article on The Daily Beast, we ladies should feel free to wear whatever we want! (As long as we don’t scare our kids or the neighborhood.)
Remember, this little holiday is about you and your honey, not about you and your mirror.
Which I tend to think are all evil anyway.
So throw away the fear and shyness, I say! Pull out that Bo Peep shepard’s hook! You are still one hot mama!
And just to reassure myself that dress up is still something couples like to do on Valentine’s Day, I went and re-read an article on Yahoo reminding me that Mickey and Minnie Mouse are still hot…and they’re older than me!
So do yourselves a favor ladies…if you still think you’ve done it all for your man for that special day, think again. You may have forgotten about that Lady SWAT costume in your closet from 1997 that just…may…work.
Which reminds me…when does the dry cleaner’s close again?
