The I Love You Tag

Two posts in one day! Yay! Since today is a holiday, I thought it would be fine if I broke my rule of not posting twice in one day. Besides, this is the last day I could do the I Love You Tag, which was created by the amazing Lizzy! I was tagged for it by both her and Hope . Thank you so much, guys!

The rules are:

Use the tag image I created!

Link the creator(me) and the original post!

Send the card/tag to 5 or more other blogging buddies! You can send it to me and anyone else that I tag because there are no questions! So no one has to redo a whole bunch of questions! You can just send the card to me or the same people I did and explain why YOU love them!

Thank you to Lizzy!

Here are the people I am thanking for being amazing blogging buddies today (there are so many of you amazing people out there and I could not possibly thank you all so this is an incomplete list):

Kaylyn – I love you because you are always positive and upbeat! I really enjoy snail mail/emailing each other, it always brightens my day!

Hope – I love you because you share your faith on your blog, which I really enjoy reading about!

Madi – I love you because you are SO RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING AND INSPIRING. I don’t know what I would do without you!

I cannot thank you enough for all the sweet comments that you leave and your encouragement. Like I have said before, I never thought I would actually make FRIENDS while blogging. Seriously. The thought never even crossed my mind. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING AWESOME, GUYS!!!!

Valentine’s Day Advice from Crystal

Hello, darlings! It’s Crystal, here with a few Valentine’s Day scenarios! I hope you enjoy the post, and have a great V-Day!

Scenario #1: You have zero idea as to what to get your BFF for Valentine’s Day.

What to do about it: What is your friends interested in? Does she adore chocolate? (Just make sure that if she is allergic to nuts, you don’t get her chocolate with nuts in it . . .) What about stuffies? Maybe you don’t even need to get her a typical V-Day prsent at all . . . if she likes photography, get her a memory card! A hand-written note saying why you value her friendship is a nice touch, too.

Scenario #2: All of your friends are going out on dates, and you’re the only one stuck at home.

What to do about it: DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT sit around upset about it. They’re out on dates, where they are so focused on looking/being perfect, but you get to sit around in your PJs and paint your nails, watch cheesy romantic comedies, and make popcorn! Which one sounds better to you?

Scenario #3: You are SO BAD at art, and all of your Valentine’s Day cards look like they were made by an alien with no thumbs.

What to do about it: There are three options here: Explain to your friends that you did your best but you are bad at art before you give them their card, buy your cards at the store, or don’t give them a card at all. If your friends are real friends, they won’t mind a messy-looking card – they’ll value the person who gave it to them instead!

Scenario #4: You ate too much candy and now you have a cavity forming . . .

Sorry. Can’t really help you with this one.

That is all my advice for today! I’m going to wrap this post up with MY definition of Valentine’s Day.

Val·en·tine’s Day

noun

A day to celebrate friendship (even if it isn’t of the romantic sort) and have fun! Eat candy. Exchange little presents. While it is okay to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a boy (as long as your parents are okay with it), you can have just as much fun (sometimes more, since you aren’t worrying about being/looking perfect) if you hang out with your BFFs.

I’ve gotta run – catch your guys later!
