I have to be honest...

I think today is going to suck! I have tried to put on a brave face, but every time I think about it I feel all panicky and sad. I mentioned  that getting through the holidays was rough and it was, but as Valentine's Day approached I've gotten more and more anxious.
I don't want to hang out with friends, I don't want to hang out with my sister, and I don't want to hang out with some dude I just met. V-day is special. It always has been to me. I like dressing in red, be it a red dress, a red blouse or a pop of red from my shoes. I always wear something red on that day. I liked waiting for what the day would bring. I like going to dinner at a nice restaurant and being out with all the other couples in love. I like shopping for lingerie. I like the attention. So yeah this Valentine's Day is going to suck! NOT! LOL!

HAPPY STORY ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the best Valentine's Day I ever had started with theCaptain bringing me gifts to my job. I'm at work minding my own business, working. We had already spoken earlier that morning and I was seeing him that night. So around 10:00 am he called me again and said come outside. I was like okay. I came out, looked around and didn't see anything. Then I hear the roar of his work truck as it was coming around the corner. I look and he is hanging off the side of the truck with my flowers in one hand and hanging on with the other. He jumps off the truck before it comes to  a complete stop grinning and all pleased with himself.

He starts walking toward me in his work uniform, all fresh cut, shaved looking and smelling so good! He really surprised me! I could not stop smiling and laughing and clapping like a dang seal.

I wish this seal was smiling. LOL!
As he is walking up to me... I ran up to him and hugged and hugged him and then we kissed. It was so romantic and special. Very "Officer and a Gentleman." and Pretty Womanish

I saw these movies and have been in love with the final scenes ever since. I'm not sure if we saw them together, but I was shocked that he fulfilled this secret fantasy for me. He brought flowers, a teddy bear, candy and a card. That V-day we didn't go out to a restaurant. I wanted to cook for him! He had spent so much, and had made my LIFE!!! at the time. I even told him, "you made my life today!"

That Valentine's Day will always be a very special memory for me. With a little tiny bit of sadness in my heart, I am also smiling at the memory as I type this.

But with faith I hold on to the FACT that my love for this day will not be in vain. I WILL be able to share another Happy Valentine's Day story. P.S. This is my last woe is me story about THIS!

I wish all of you a Very Happy Valentine's Day  : )

aaaaw, that's sweet, what the captain did! SOrry you are feeling down today. I think you should rock red anyways and maybe you should treat yourself in some way, to that Red pedi you've been wanting or to a facial, or a nice dinner or something. You will have another nice V-day! :)

I wrote this a few days ago and I'm actually not down. I don't know what I feel... Reading this late night made me smile.

Oh I am getting the red toes for sure!! But outside of that I'm laying low. I did buy me some new shoes I've wanted. This dang cleans prevents me from eating something great anyway...
Hope your day is GREAT! LOL!

I know you said you don't want to go out with friends but while I was in undergrad, my friends and I used to go out in a huge group on Valentine's Day and have a blast!! Even before we were drinking! All of us were single or had boos who lived far away. We wore red, pink or purple & had the best time! If you don't, you might need some new friends! LOL Don't let being unattached steal your joy for the day!

I am glad you are feeling better, I agree with Jameil you should go out and have a good time. You talking me into getting into the Valentines Day spirit =)

That's a great memory it made me smile. I know you will have others that will be just as great. Enjoy your day!

I love this holiday! I'm glad you're not down anymore and still maintaining a positive outlook on what the future holds.

I hope you decide to go out with some friends after all!

GorgeousPuddin said...

That sounds like a great time! I have celebrated like that in the past and it was a blast. Today I'm feeling better and I'm kinda cool besides it's raining and most of my friends are attached... I decided to make this a beauty day hair done, nails done everything did! LOL! You know why!

I'm glad I can get you into the spirit! I really do LURVE the holiday! LOL! I too believe I'll have many more! I wish the same for you! Thanks!

I'm loving me with a day of beauty, and I feel better already! Happy Valentine's Day to you too! :)

Thank you!! I hope so too! I wish the same for you! Happy Valentine's Day!

Glad to have another on #Team Love
Yeah, I'm staying up. It's really not as bad as I thought it would be. But I am keeping away from stores and TV shows that are all about love! LOL!

A very touching post.

For a second there I forgot about my general contempt for this day and I actually misted up for a second (don't tell the brothers that or I'll have to turn in my black man card).

A special love is something that we never forget.

GorgeousPuddin said...

Aww thank you Reggie. You just keep me laughing!! I won't tell anybody. A special love, so true!

Hey Girl!! Same to you!

AR Gal said...

That's such a special memory! I totally thought of Richard Gere in "Pretty Woman" before you mentioned it.

@AR Gal

My day was spent in the bed sleeping. Why, because I woke up with my an irritated throat. My sinuses were working overtime. After a unsuccessful attempt at getting ready for work, I called in sick. I'm glad to hear that you were able to make the best of your day.

GorgeousPuddin said...

I hope you feel better! Yeah, my day ended up alright.
