I hate when I realize that the weeks are flying by and it’s yet another Friday. Depressing! And tomorrow is a day that usually gets me into an even funkier mood. I’m turning 31 (cough!!!) I mean 41 (sigh!!!) DARN IT!
I wanted to have a great giveaway of some sorts or a big bash and then I just don’t feel like it. Birthdays just aren’t the same anymore when you are older. Why is that? I did treat myself yesterday though with some retail therapy and I’m going to go for a massage with girlfriends tomorrow which I’m really looking forward too. Getting older is all about reinventing your former lifestyle and self I guess and I’m working on it. I feel like I’m in my early twenties inside but my body really doesn’t agree with me that much anymore. Gosh I hate when I talk like this but do you know what I mean? Ugh you probably don’t! That’s why I love skiing so much. I’m hidden in my layers of snow gear and going down the mountain makes me feel alive and younger and nobody can (maybe) tell that I’m underneath all those layers. I hope I won’t get hurt one day with my skiing shenanigans though.
Anyways I need to stop and focus on todays post.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you already know that I don’t care about Valentine’s Day at all. I kind of hate it! My husband is so lucky! I just want people to be nice to me throughout the year not only on forced days like V-Day and Mother’s Day. Random surprises are so much better!

But I thought for those of you who really love days like that I’d find some items on Etsy.
If you have an apple watch or your significant other does then these handmade leather bands for the watch would make a great gift. I want one for myself:
I’ve featured a ring like this before. Just love a good statement ring (click HERE) and I’ve always loved pearls. The entire shop has amazing jewelry:
If you want to send out something sweet for Valentine’s Day and you hate to bake yourself like uhm well yeah….like me, then this assortment would be a great solution from Etsy:
Or if you are really “schmoopy” then you can get these shams from Etsy:
Love my “Seinfeld” and miss that show. It’s a must see episode, am I right? If you have no clue what I’m talking about then you should see the little “schmoopy” episode on you tube by clicking HERE.
And if you aren’t quite that “schmoopy” then these cool Mr. & Mrs. shams are enough too. I really love them!
Oh and do you guys remember the pineapple candle from last week? I got so many inquiries about it because apparently when you checked about ordering it, US shipping wasn’t available. But the shop owner now informed me that she changed it. Click HERE to get to the Etsy shop.
And since then I found another version but not on Etsy. This time for $6.99. Not bad right? Click HERE to see.
This next little gadget is something that cracked me up and I feel like my entire family needs it. It’s a leash for your Apple remote (click HERE). We have several Apple TV remotes in the house and they are tiny. I might have to stick these leashes somewhere and relax. Isn’t that a perfect little gift for that certain person in your life who loses that remote all the time.
But you saw the headline and actually just wanted to see the other half of my basement, the messy, awful and in-progress side of the basement which I documented with horrible iPhone photos. I’ll let you have it. Are you ready? I’m cringing. No sugar coating! No pretty pictures, just the awful truth!
So I have disheveled curtains, book shelves that need to be rearranged and painted, a dinosaur TV that needs replacing, a huge wrestling mat that my husband loves dearly, workout gear, a drum set and my Etsy shop area to the left. Nice right? I have my work cut out for me down there and I’m not sure what I will do with the shelving and TV yet. We just do so much stuff down there and I need to find a place for it all.
Well did you see Wednesday’s post about the other nicer half of the basement? If you didn’t then you can click HERE to catch up.
Have a great weekend.
