Nuthin’ but Luv for Ya

Standard

Valentine’s Day is more than a week away, but I am already excited about celebrating… without the stuffed animals!  I’ve never been a fan of something that looks a little creepy and just stares at me from my bed.  So, I move them to the closet, then eventually they find a nice home at Goodwill.  *shudder*

 

Anywho, I have seen two great deals to help you celebrate the lovely holiday.

 

Gigi’s Cupcakes offers two deals – the Lots of Love box has 6 cupcakes for $15.99, and the Love Box has 4 cupcakes for $10.99.  These aren’t just any ol’ cupcakes, either.  These are the most adorable cupcakes with colors and shapes that Cupid would approve of.  And Gigi’s makes it easy – you can place your order ahead of time!

 

Stein Mart has the cutest costume jewelry to help spread the love.  And for $7.99 each, you can still afford the most important of all gifts – wine and chocolate.  (Let me be the first to spread the love by thanking Trader Joe’s for their Two-Buck Chuck.)

 

Remember to let the important people in your life know how much they mean to you… on Valentine’s Day and everyday.

Do you remember how you felt, as a child, to excitedly look forward to a super fun family vacation?  Do you remember counting down the school days until summer vacation?  Do you remember the nostalgia that began after Thanksgiving and lasted through Christmas?  Okay, so this one still happens for me…  Well, here’s another one of life’s highs – paying off a credit card.  I was on target to pay that sucker off in December, but fate had another plan.  I know you’ve heard of the gold-buying sales commercials.  I was skeptical, too.  Skeptical until two co-workers racked up.  This past Saturday, I took a handful of gold jewelry (two necklaces with two charms and two bracelets) to Bailey’s in Cameron Village.  The place was buzzing with other hopefuls like me.  I left with a nice check and used that to pay off the credit card early.  The debt snowball is gaining speed and the baby steps are more within reach.  I am far from done, but this accomplishment gives me the motivation to keep on keepin’ on.  Here’s to motivation, and here’s to GOLD!
