Fries Before Guys

So here's the lowdown on how your girl Han spent Valentine's Day. Prepare yourself for LOTS of photos. I'll have a post tomorrow on our outfits and all those details. 

So basically Amaris (one of my bestest friends) and I decided we weren't going to sit around on Saturday and do nothing. She asked me to be her valentine (aww shucks) and of course I said "duh" and asked her back. We spend the day laughing our heads off and discussing life and avoiding creeps. (lots more on that later)

(in my natural habitat) 

First things first: Food.. and lots of it. 

We wrapped up our left over/greasy fries in that paper bag and munched on them throughout the rest of the day. You can call us classy. 

Then we headed to some thrift stores but sadly I don't have any photos of that. It was however the place for our first creepy encounter....
So while we were browsing through the racks Amaris noticed this older guy (facial hair type) who keep staring at her and smiling. I shrugged it off as nothing and went to go check out the shoes. A few minutes later she ran over to me and said that he walked past her and said "you are so gorgeous." and then walked away. I told her not to leave my side because this guy was starting to sound like bad news. About 10 minutes later he walked up to her again and introduced himself and gave her a folded up McDonald's receipt that said "Hey just moved here got a job and I don't know anyone. I'm 30. Call if you want *phone number*. -*name*"
I decided he was definitely a rapist or serial killer and I think it will take me a while before I get up the courage to go back to that goodwill. 
(Tbh I was more interested in checking his receipt and seeing what he ordered for lunch. In case you're curious it was two double cheeseburgers.)

We shook off that creepy encounter and went to get a cupcake down the road. We sat by the window and ranked couples on cuteness and compatibility. 

(I decided we were a 10 on the cuteness scale while all the other couples only got 6's)

Then we headed to Colonial Williamsburg and took photos, got winked at, bought each other roses, got blown kisses from a car full of guys (does Valentine's Day bring out the inner creep of every guy?), and almost got blown away by the wind. We also heard someone murmur "wow those jackets are bright." Oh I'm sorry we totally didn't notice. 

The cutest lil photographer 

Buying yourself flowers is the best because you can make sure they match the aesthetic of your instagram stream. 

We wore ring pops but couldn't get up the courage to get a fake proposal picture like we were dying to. Even the bravest people have their limits. 


Right on Victoria's Secret. Right on. 

I got heart (and monkey) shaped balloons and a stuffed fox that dances and says "you're so foxy" on it. It doesn't get much better than that. 

Matching dresses for the win! (Amaris bought that black dress. Isn't it classic!?!?)

We can do some damage in Loft. Oops.

A few black dresses were bought. No regrets. Just sales. 

So if you couldn't tell it was basically the best day ever. 


How did you spend your day?



  1. Your day sounded like so much fun! Omg I would have been so creeped out if a guy like that tried to hit on me in goodwill haha

    1. I had a mini panic attack and was SURE he was going to follow us to our car! Ha ha but it was a fun day!

  2. Fun, fun! I love special outings on special days...especially when shopping is involved. :) Things like that make the sweetest memories.
    Ooooo, creepyyyyyy! :/ The closest I've gotten to any "attention" is a cat call...maybe. Now I know to be prepared if I'm out on V's Day next year! ;)
    Thanks for sharing your adventures!

    1. yes shopping and food are the two ways to my heart! <3
      Oh I've never had a cat call, but I'd probably get really mad ha ha!


    this is basically the best thing ever.

  4. This was the most HILARIOUS post EVER! Sorry -- I just had to throw that in there although it must have been really awful for you two to have that encounter. :)

    dance a real

    1. other than being convinced we were going to be raped/killed it was a fabulous day! ;)
