7 Ways To Be A Funny Valentine

When you have a fun or quirky main squeeze, the overly mushy cards and sentiments can be off putting. Not to say there isnt a time when those ‘cant live without you’ cards wouldn’t be appropriate. Its just that there are times when you want to be lighthearted and prefer whimsy over deep emotion. I have collected a few images that would go well with a hug, a smooch and a laugh. Hope you enjoy!

Cool Mom Picks nailed it with the Wine theme.


Hearts And Laserbeams shared a super cute and yes, cheesy, sentiment.


Can you see yourself sharing this with your love? Get it? See? Well Mother’s Niche provided this clever option.


Mashable posted this adorable image that was originally taken from an Etsy account.


Another great Etsy card that has you saying Tomatoes in your head. Admit it. You did.


How cute is this dino humor from BlogLovin?


Custom Made keeps it simple and downright sweet with this greeting.


7 Ways Women Over 40 Celebrate Their Birthdays


I just turned 41 over the weekend and celebrated with family & a handful of friends from high school. Nothing big. Just drinks, pizza, drinks, cupcakes…oh and drinks. Did I mention we had some drinks?

After a day of recovery (not built to party like I used to), I compiled a list sharing how others celebrated their 40th and beyond. In the weeks prior to my birthday, I did some research, polled a few people and came up with the most common answers. Most are obvious choices, although my weekend didn’t fall into these categories. Unless you consider how much laughing we did…then I suppose it fell into the Humor category!


If you are anything like me, you use humor to deal with life.


Destinations become checklist items. Tropical? Cold? Historic? Yes please!

Elaborate Dinner Party

I am talking full on knowing what spoon and fork to use type of dinner soiree.

Cocktail Crawl

Its a grown pub crawl but with cocktails instead of pints.

Wine & Dine

Steaks, bottomless wine and a dessert that takes longer to assemble than eat.

Girl’s Night Out

Sexy outfit, glam makeup and your squad!

Pajamas & A Movie

Rom-Com, Lifetime or Tearjerker style movies in your pj’s with a side of ice cream.


When you hit 40 or beyond, how did you celebrate?
