Ok, I know Valentine spirit isn't a real thing, and actually, I've never really even been into the holiday. Sure it was fun in high school when my boyfriend brought a single rose from the grocery store to school for me. Or when Jacob planned a fun date, that one time, years and years, and years ago. But honestly, whether I was single or in a relationship, it was just never a big deal to me. Jacob and I don't even exchange gifts. It is kinda fun now that I have two mini valentines though. We don't have a fireplace in our house (every single day I regret that we didn't add one when we built this house. Jacob has a phobia. I'll have to write about that later), so a few months ago we hung up these photo ledges from Ikea and I've been using them like a mantel. I decorated for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and now, VDay!

I love the Grammys because there are more performances than there are awards to give out. It's such an entertaining show. Here's what went through my mind. What an annoying performance by Taylor Swift. She’s really not a terrible song writer, but this song is so immature. She should be embarrassed of it. Why did she touch her hair so much? Not sexy, Tay. I liked LL’s opening. It seemed very heartfelt. I like Ed Sheeran and love that Elton John sang with him. Thank God Adele won! She is the queen. Could you imagine if frickin’ Call Me Maybe one that award? Fun. was fun. I don’t really listen to country, so Miranda’s performance didn’t do anything for me. She’s so cute though. It would have been better if Blake was singing with her. Miguel and Wiz Khalifa were boring. Did Carrie Underwood say “golly” in her speech. Hahaha! I love what she said about her husband though. Be still my Mumford & Sons loving heart. They are so amazing. This is my favorite song on their album. Sigh, I just can’t say enough about them. They are playing a music festival in May and Jacob and I were going to go, but I just found out you can’t get a single day ticket and we can't/don't want to go all four days. I’m so bummed!!! I think Justin Timberlake is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but I’m still not into these songs. I loved the performance though. He’s so handsome! I love Jay-Z too. Yay for The Black Keys! I totally recognize and respect Alicia Keys, but she has always bored me. Even adding Adam Levine didn’t spice things up for me. I think anyone but Kelly Clarkson should have won best Pop Vocal Album. That CD is terrible and I can’t stand Stronger. Her speech was cute, but she drunk? She usually has better composure. Blah, Rihanna. The Black Keys were great! Kelly Clarkson was great! Bruno Mars and Sting were great! Every single person in the audience was on their feet, dancing and singing along. I love The Lumineers. What a simple, but really great performance! I want to be in their band, they look like their having such fun. Katy Perry looks so, so, so pretty with regular colored hair and neutral makeup. It must be John Mayer’s
control influence. Another win for Fun.! I love that album, I’m so glad they got some awards. Hunter Hayes looks 12. Carrie Underwood’s dress is hideous. Oh, it just got uglier with a light show. She looks so awkward singing, but trying to stand completely still. Every single vocal performance of hers has been flawless though. Prince is so weird, I love it. Yay for Gotye! I really wanted him to win. His speech was sweet. Kimbra’s dress was terrible. All of those people singing The Weight? I got chills! Your Song is one of my favorites ever. It sounds great in every language! I was kind of mesmerized by Frank Ocean’s performance. Of course Mumford & Sons. I love those other albums so much (besides Jack White) and would have been happy with anyone, but it had to be Mumford & Sons! Marcus and Carey were so sweet. They couldn’t have ended the show any better. MCA forever.
