In honor of Valentine's Day today, I bought myself a few little presents when I was at Walmart picking up supplies to put together my Valentines gifts for my friends. I have two favorite purchases: my new foam roller and my new yoga shorts ($5). I've never really used a foam roller, but my IT band was REALLY tight on my right side yesterday, so instead of bothering Mike and the football team, I bought my own (it was $15, not expensive at all). Holy. Cow. I felt AMAZING afterwards, although I'm kind of bruised along my sides right now. I can't wait to do it again. I rolled out my hip flexors, my back, my IT band, and my shins. LOVE IT. Seriously, my new BFF. I didn't take a picture of me foam rolling because I was wearing my new yoga shorts and I wasn't sure if the world really wanted to see how bootylicious I am. I seriously love these shorts; they're comfy, they're so soft, they're not too tight, and they make my butt (my favorite body part) look fabulous. What more could a girl ask for? I'm seriously debating going back for more. I also bought a new pair of running shorts ($6) but I haven't tried those out yet.
I have been distributing Valentines gifts to my friends today and I'm having a blast. It always feels so nice to give things to people, even if it's a small thing. Tonight, I have a lady date with some friends. We're planning on ordering a heart shaped pizza from Papa John's and drinking some beer. Then, we're going to Main Street (since it's Thursday) and I plan on distributing more Valentines to random people. I'm also debating whether or not Valentine's Day is an excuse to wear my pink tutu from Halloween... I think it is, but I'm not sure if I'll look like a total weirdo just running around in a hot pink ballerina tutu.
I thought it was fitting to take a picture of my Valentine's Day gifts for friends against my pink walls
Happy Valentine's Day, my loves! Do you have any special plans? Did you make anything to hand out to the people you love?
