Boost My Blog Friday - 2/11



Hi everybody! Today is Friday, that means it's time again to catch up with Boost My Blog Friday here on Design It Chic!




For those of you new here, it's very simple.. the only rule is: no rules!! That's right!! This blog-hop is supposed to be a boost in our blogs' asses... friends-wise:)!!
So just make sure you link with us, follow us as the host (and leave us a comment so we know you follow us and return the love back:) and then feel free to follow whoever you want to, leave nice comments, send them love notes and chocolate boxes *WOW scratch that last part:P* and don't forget to do the happy dance!

If you join with us on Boost My Blog Friday, please take your time and leave a comment, so we know you're participating with us and maybe pay you a visit:) Thanks!



And as always, today we have another question for you:
Pro or anti Valentine's Day?

We're very supportive of Valentine's Day around here, and even if this celebrating had become ever so popular thanks to great marketing campaigns out there, let's be honest ladies, does it matter the reason, if we get to receive something?:) Seriously this is one of the 3 times a year when we can snatch that expensive pair of shoes or allow ourselves to not clean the house and let the kids stay with their grandparents for a change or something fancy like that. How can we refuse that, right?!?:) And since Christmas and Birthday felt alone and bored just the two of them, we decided to add Valentine's Day to join the fun party. Enjoy!!! ha ha:) Now come on, share your love-hate relationship with Valentine's day here with us and also find out what other fellow bloggers have to say too:) Let the fun begin!


Now, if you missed anything here at Design It Chic, you can check the Blogger tutorial section for more blog tutorials, the SEO department for more tips to improve your blog's traffic or check out the Unclutter tips column for more tips on making your blog clean and easy to access! Happy Friday all!

Two of my three kids have birthdays on February 13 (Not twins. Born 6 years and 39 minutes apart.) So Valentine's Day gets a little overshadowed. We always get heart-shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's and give the kids a little treat. I'm not big on the mushy date stuff, but a Valentine's lunch is nice spent with my husband.

Thanks so much for hosting Boost My Blog! We are not Anti Valentine's Day here; but, since it's my husband's birthday, we celebrate that rather than the sweetheart day. It works for us! Have a great weekend, Candace

I love Valentines day for all the sentimental reasons, however I do not like the price of roses being hiked up just because of the day, nor all the hoopla that goes along with it for buying diamonds, etc., It's the day I 'even more' why I love...

I am a new follower. Thanks for hosting this!

We are very pro Valentine's Day around here. I always make a special dinner where everything is heart-shaped or red. I also get a small gift and some candy for each of the kids. It's a nice way to break up the dreary winter.

Oh! And neutral on Valentine's day. I'm not gonna get angry if we don't do anything. And really, we haven't in forever! So. . .

Joined up on the blog hop & am spreading the word :)

When it comes to V-day, honestly I would just prefer to stay neutral. Which is def hard when you're single & see so many ppl around you coupled up. But if i *was* in a relationship, I wouldn't want to 'celebrate' V-day...I just don't believe in its Hallmark-ness. I'd MUCH MUCH rather have spontaneous days of showing someone how much I care or them showing me.
But there's also nothing wrong with being a of Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day is pretty low key around here. It's my Dad's birthday so we tend to make a bigger production over that.

It's an ok holiday but like anything else after awhile the marketing campaign makes it lose some of it's meaning.

We should celebrate love.

ChinaDoll said...

I'm an OLD follower of your blog but this is the first time that I will be joining "boost my blog friday" =)

♥I am a pro Valentines day person...you can make everyday like Vday but still it feels extra special to celebrate the day with your loved ones...it can be your special someone, friends and family members. And ladies, admit it...it feels good to be treated by our partners to a nice dinner date, receiving flowers and chocolates! =)

Liberty said...

I'm participating in your hop this week!

I don't really care if I receive anything for Valentine's Day. I really try to make it special for the kiddos. I try to make things for Heart Day instead of buy them... it may just be a card or a poem... but something that lets my kiddos know that they are my heart!

xxoo,
Liberty

Thanks for hosting. Now following your very cute blog. I feel like valentines is just a halmark holiday and anniversaries are really valentines day. Regardless we still celebrate with a nice dinner, a few presents and some wine.

I'm totally on the fence about Valentine's Day.

I think the pressure to buy and give expensive things that will be forgotten in 24 hours is unfortunate. I think having a day for paying more attention to someone or making a nice gesture is great!
