You’re All My Galentines.

You’re All My Galentines.

Oh, you guys. 


Wow. What an outpouring of love you’ve sent my way. I’m sitting here, just grinning away at my computer like I’m watching newborn kitten videos, but I’m NOT, I’m reading your comments, and they are literally making my day brighter. And I truly mean literally, as in, the correct way, as in, the lights somehow just got brighter in here, probably due to all the love wattage beaming out of my internet.  

Thank you so much. It means the world to me. Thanks for rooting for me and praying for me and my family, and continuing to hang around here. 

Let’s see if you continue to hang around after I share something kinda weird.

It’s not that weird. Don’t get too excited.

So I went to a ‘Galentine’ party the other night, which is, as I’m sure you know, a Valentine’s Day party for your gal pals. 

PS: sorry I’m sharing valentine stuff exactly one day before the holiday. I just decided to restart blogging like, two days ago, so this is where we’re at. And I thought of this idea with my very own brain, which is rare, so that’s worth sharing alone.

Anyway, if you’ve ever been to a Galentine party, you traditionally bring cute little valentines to share with your lady friends. And there sure were a lot of cute ideas from my cute friends. 

Pink Heart Shaped Valentine Donuts

Heart shaped donuts …

You're the Balm - Valentine Lip BalmPun

“You’re the Balm,” lip balm valentines, don’t mind if I do …

Plastic shovel valentine wih chocolates - I Dig You

Plastic sand shovels, “I totally DIG you!” And below that, Crush sodas that say “I have a CRUSH on You.” Puns were out in full force!

Pocket Hand Sanitizer Valentine pun - There's a Love Bug Going Around

Loved this idea: mini hand-sanitizers that say “There’s a Love Bug going around.” (Which is true, everyone in my entire state has the flu right now, yours too??)

Plastic Heart Glasses - Valentine Pun - I Only Have Eyes for You

Didn’t get a great shot of this, but that’s my friend Hilary who gave out valentines featuring her Snapchat filtered face, haha!

“I think you are stu’pen’dous,” with cute pens, love it.

“I am SODA-lighted you are my friend!”

A super cute jar full of kisses that my son accidentally shattered ten seconds after I brought it home, le grand sigh.

“You knock my socks off!” with valentine socks, my sister brought these, she is seven-thousand times craftier than me.

Heart shaped cookie cutters, great idea.

And that was just a handful of the cuteness we all got to go home with.

And then … there was mine.

Mine was not very cute.

It was not a Pinterest-approved punny play-on-words.

But I’ll tell you what it was.


I gave out liners.

NO, not those liners.


Crock-pot liners. (If you haven’t used crock-pot/slow-cooker liners before, what are you waiting for, they will quite honestly change your life). In an attempt to be thrifty, I dreamed up this idea when I realized that crock-pot liners are around fifty cents a piece. Bingo! With nearly 30 valentines to give out, it seemed like a good enough idea.

And guess what? Someday soon, after the candy is gone and the puns are forgotten, and one of my girlfriends makes a crock-pot dinner (with a liner!) and doesn’t have to clean a speck of it up afterward, she will love me the most. Me! I win!!

And that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about.
