You guys. Valentine's Day. It's not that I don't love that I'm Cathie's "NUMBER ONE VALENTINE XOXOXOXOXOXOXO" again. But this holiday just gets more and more annoying for me every year. And this one is particularly obnoxious. It is destroying a weekend!

I'm fine with Valentine's Day ruining a Monday. Tuesday or Wednesday? Fine. Thursday? Not ideal, but have at it. BUT WHY MUST IT DESTROY AN ENTIRE WEEKEND!?

Here. Have some Pictures and Distractions:

Burke was just sitting there and Ollie walked over and plopped down like this and I love him BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT PUPPY DOES IS CUTE.

Ollie politely waits for Rebecca to give him food he knows he can't have. 

I like big butts and I cannot lie.

I rediscovered this at Bob and Cathie's house last weekend. One of you sent this to me a while back and now I don't remember who. Sorry and thank you!

The sun sets on downtown Salt Lake City.

Island cabinets installed! Up next, counter-top. 

You guys. This isn't funny. Thanks, Adam.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

23 things that get way more exciting as you get older. Thanks, Amy.

Taylor Swift 1988 National Aerobic Championship Opening. Thanks, Amy.

Conan at a Korean Bathhouse. My same experience except he didn't lose his clothes. Thanks, Magan.

26 pictures that will make you want to burn the Internet to the ground. Thanks, Lori.

House of Cards leaked for a moment. Timing is everything, people. Thanks, Brad.

There's no other way to say this: A 109-year-old man is knitting penguin sweaters. Thanks, Derrick.

The real cause of addiction. Thanks, Matthew.

Facebook now lets you control what happens to your account after you die. Thanks, Rod.

A little Paul for all my lonely friends on Valentine's Day.
