"I don't think you realize tomorrow is saturday..."

My ultra twin Caron and I had been looking forward for Valentine's day for quite a while.
We were not disappointed - I think I can safely say this was the best Valentines day ever!

A card I made for my mother.

The inside of a card.
My take on LOLCats, with Rudi.

Caron's present from Rudi - a demolished Valentine cookie.

Caron's valentine from Jack Barakat.

The valentine I made for Caron.
A valentine love face.

"It's just a coffee mug of grease."
It's actually filled with conversation hearts.
I bought the mug for that quote though.
Adalaide, for the unicorn lover.
Long before Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist came out (six years to be exact) I was the master of playlists.
I still am.

Now for your valentine present I have made the ultimate (when I say ultimate I mean ultimate, like 51 songs worth) Valentine playlist.
Getting Into You - Relient K
A really sweet love song.
Winter Song - Sara Barielles and Ingrid Michaelson
For my mother.
We Are Birds - Brighten
My favorite song of the moment.
Thirteen - Ben Kweller
The master of love songs.
Your Song - Elton John
I only have one word for you - ELTON
Birds - Kate Nash
Kate Nash is my musical soulmate. I love this story about a boy trying to tell a girl he likes her - in metaphor of birds.
All I Want Is You - Barry Lou Polisar
Well I'm on a role of metaphorical songs. Seriously though, where was this song when I was learning about metaphors in high school??
I'm Sticking With You - The Velvet Underground
This reminds me of a vintage Disney movie (The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, anybody?) for some reason.
I love it!
Sea of Love - Cat Power
I'm sorry I'm pretty much posting the Juno soundtrack.
I promise I have other songs.
Lover I Don't Have To Love - Bright Eyes
Because I didn't want to pick "First Day of My Life."
Also, who doesn't want a lover they don't have to love??
Love the One Your With - Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
One of my favorite songs of all time.
If you see my singing really loud in my car - I'm probably singing this song.
Rosé - the Feeling
The Feeling are one of my favorite bands I've just discovered.
This is truly fruly a beautiful song.
The Rose Captain - Sea Wolf
For the best boyfriend ever - Sarah Anna Cera.
Cupid - Amy Winehouse
I love Amy Winehouse - no matter how crazy she gets.
Clark Gable - the Postal Service
I love Ben Gibbard, I love Jenny Lewis, and I love Clark Gable.
I don't think there could be a more perfect song.
Trying My Best to Love You - Jenny Lewis
I told you I loved Jenny Lewis.
Also, remember that love is never easy.
But if you lose the perfect match - just grab a boom box, jaunt down to their house, hold said boom box outside and play this song, wake the whole street and profess your love.
They'll probably take you back, I would.
Brandy Alexander - Feist
If I told you I was obsessed with the song - well, that's just not doing my feelings justice.
I really want a Brandy Alexander, whoever he may be.
Something - the Beatles
Because I can't not use the Beatles, duh.
That's a crime.
Love Today - Mika
Really, everybody should love.
I bet if everyone woke up to this song every morning, everybody would love.
The Girl - City and Colour
If ever I marry a musician (I probably will, it's in my prophecy) they better write me a song much like this.
Honey and the Moon - Joseph Arthur
Who doesn't want to be someone's honey and moon?
Elephants As Big As Whales - PlayRadioPlay!
I'm just going to throw this out there - best love song ever. Ever.
I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
Inches and Falling - the Format
"I love love, I love being in love"
Young Folks - Peter, Bjorn, and John
It's the truth - when you are in love you really don't care what other people think.
Lolita - Throw Me the Statue
I think Throw Me the Statue sounds more as if they should be like a deathcore band. Regardless - this is a fun song.
Anyone Else But You - the Moldy Peaches
I'm sorry, but how could I not put this on a love playlist?
Everything I Once Had - the Honorary Title
For those who prefer to celebrate Singles Awareness Day.
1000 Times A Day - the Early November
I love this story in song.
I really want to know if it's based of actual events.
Bruised - Jack's Mannequin
Andrew McMahon is my high school hero.
This Old Machine - Coconut Records
Jason Swartzman? Zooey Deschanel??
I don't think it gets better than this...
Just Like We Do - Eisley
Perfect on rainy Sundays.
Penelope - Pinback
I just wanted to use Pinback.
Boats and Birds - Gregory and the Hawk
Just a really beautiful song.
Tranatlanticism - Death Cab For Cutie
I need you so much closer.
With Arms Outstretched - Rilo Kiley
Did I mention I love Jenny Lewis?
The girl tells it like it is.
If you don't get anything out of this song, you at least get a great sing a long.
Shiska (Girlfriend) - Say Anything
I remember when I first got a boyfriend.
I was singing something similar to this song.
I'll Be There - Jackson 5
When Michael was a little precious.
5 Years Time - Noah and the Whale
Because I know how it is to imagine being with someone, that you are actually not with.
I Think I Love You - the Partridge Family
I think I love you too David Cassidy, I think I love you too.
My Beautiful Rescue - This Providence
Because love does want to make people dance on top of buildings.
Because love does make people want to shout at the top of their lungs.
Boy In a Rock N Roll Band - the Pierces
Actually, I swore I would marry a boy in a rock n roll band.
I Wanna Love You (Akon Cover) - the Maine
If anyone could make a song about strippers, or an Akon song for that matter, romantic, the Maine could.
This is probably the best cover I have ever heard.
Completely different song.
Sore - Anuual
The sweetest song.
To Be Alone With You - Sufjan Stevens
I love saying Sufjan.
Little Bit - Lykke Li
This is my song for someone I'd rather not mention.
Lady - Styxx

That's all.
The Honey In Your Tea - Alcholiday
This is a local band I love.
"If you fall, I will bandaged your scraped knees. I'll forever be the honey in your tea."
Konstantine - Something Corporate.
I'm sorry. I lied. This is the best love song ever.
Actually it's one of the best songs ever.
A headband I made for the occasion.
I'm sorry I suck at taking photographs and have no photo's from the night.

This is where I surprised Caron with dinner. The Sugar Bowl is the cutest ice cream parlor, located in old town Scottsdale. They serve a million different varieties of ice cream and delicious sandwiches (including tea sandwiches!) I had the most delectable veggie sandwich and for dessert Caron and I shared the brownie buster sunday - the most delicious french vanilla ice cream you will ever taste in your life, a brownie, and of course rainbow sprinkles.

After dinner Caron and I made our way to the Cine-Capri theatre. We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic, which I'm afraid to say was no good. But it was worth it to finally get to the Cine-Capri.

Yesterday I participated in my Day After Valentine's Day tradition. My sister, Hannah and I, trekked to Walgreens and spent a chunk of change on extremely marked down Valentine's candy and an Arizona Peach Tea to wash it all down.

Of course my very favorite is the "Lady" video. Extreme romantic cheese at it's best.

Can I hold you now?
