I consider myself very lucky. My Valentine showed up on time, and stayed with me all day long. He dressed to impress and put on his tuxedo for me.
I just can’t get enough. While his white “almost” soul patch works for now, I want to get him one of these..
My date and I had fun adventures. We started with a walk (he escaped and then I left him outside.) On my walk I found the love that is my neighborhood.
I can’t tell if that smaller pile is poo or a pine cone. After our walks we baked. Well, tried to bake. I wanted to make a giant heart cookie. Everyone was making cakes, so I wanted to rebel. It backfired.
Giant chubby heart. It was still raw in the center and while I love raw dough, I tore it apart and recooked it in pieces.
I also spent some time with this guy.
We share somed vodka and cried over being old. I am 24 today. It’s almost all down hill from here. Before I get calls about deforming my cats, he doesn’t really look like this, but that app was hilarious.
Q: How was your Valentines day? Who was your date? The couch…your pets…a wine bottle?

We have such similar ideas! I made my guy pink heart-shaped rice krispie treats using this heart-shaped ice cube tray, but they looked somewhat deformed when I popped them out… But we celebrated the day before with sushi (and a vegan chocolate cupcake from Whole Foods — I’m obsessed since reading your post from ages ago!) to beat the crowds.
And… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Good luck with your half marathon this weekend too!
I SO wish you lived by me, I would take you to get some vegan cupcakes that are 10x better than WF!! I know..it seems impossible, but IT’S NOT!!
foods for the soul
No, I do believe it! I love their fudgy frosting, but the cupcake itself is hit or miss… Most of the time they’re on the dry side. Where is this wonderful place of cupcake bliss??
In Olympia Washington. It’s called The Bearded Lady Food co. I blogged about it a few times, SO good!
Oh man celebrating valentines day with a half marathon? That sounds like my kind of day!!! I hope you have a blast! (Also feel free to disregard the other comment. iPhones suck for wordpress and commented another post on yours)
Alex @ therunwithin
oh gosh heart shaped giant cookie sounds and looks pretty sweet. that sign, I can see a crazy neighbor doing that in my home town too
travels with mary
I have a soft spot for black cats! and yeah, all of my “heart-shaped” ideas were dashed this year. I ended up with just a round (BORING) cake.
Amy @ A Desert Girl
The “I’m just big boned!” picture and cookie had me in hysterics. Oh and tuxedo on the cat – love it. Although your cat’s real life fur tuxedo is pretty awesome too.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I still have my fingers crossed on your run this weekend. Good luck!
Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen
Haha love your date with your cat. That cookie pie sounds awesome. I’ve wanted to try making a cookie pie but didn’t know how the baking would work out. Nothin’ wrong with a little cookie dough of course 😉
AH! That horse picture made me laugh so hard! I love it! Hoping your half goes great!!
My mom. Flowers. Chocolate. Frozen yogurt. Elmo. My couch. No wine because of pain killers (damnit). Tonight will most likely be a repeat + Shark Tank. I live a swell life. I hope your knee is feeling better! Also, I live in the foods and I never clean up my dog’s poop because.. Well, I’m lazy, crippled, and we live in nature. My neighbor put up a sign. Hahahhaha. I love my life.
Fingers crossed and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Wow, 24 huh? That’s like….almost halfway to 30!!
Lulz. See what I did there?
Girlfrannn you don’t look a day over 25!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Happy Birthday, girlie! I can’t cross my fingers for you because I need them to type, but I’ll definitely be keeping my toes crossed for you… as long as you agree to share some of that cookie cake with me 😉
My date for Valentine’s was my momma. No shame
An Unrefined Vegan
Wherever did you find the photo of the obese (right word for equines??) horse? The resemblance to the cookie…uncanny. Happy birthday, hon!!
Happy Birthday!!!! Sounds like you had an awesome VDay 🙂
Lora @ Crazy Running Girl
This post is hilarious. 🙂 Happy birthday!
That cat tie = AMAZING! I don’t even really like cats (sorry, terrible, I know) & I would love a cat dressed up like that. As long as the cookie tasted good, who cares what shape it was in 🙂
And Happy Frickin’ Birthday Girl, hope it’s fab!

Life After Swimming
YESSSSS 24! Happy birthday again, girl! And Geno NEEDS a tie.
Aww, your dates are lovely ;)! I would have loved to have had some of that giant heart cookie cake!
Since hubby was working late/ ignores valentines day anyways – I sat on the couch and ate pizza with a glass of wine. Livin the dream!! Haha
Happy birthday friend!

Hooray for couch and wine (and dinner on Saturday night)

Happpppy birthday, Britt! Hope you had a fantabulous day and that the celebrations are continuing over the weekend! For what it’s worth, I’d take a cookie over cake any day..even more so when it’s heart-shaped ;)!
Hahaha! The big boned horse and horse cookie totally cracked me up! Thanks for the laugh. 😀
Happy birthday Britt.
Happyyyy Valentine’s Day & Birthdayyy lovahhh!! Have fun this weekend & good luck at the race.
Tessa at Amazing Asset
First, Happy Birthday! You had me cracking up through this post Brittany, and I think the heart actually looks a-okay… just ya know, a bit errr bumpy/wobbly? Do know words even make sense to describe it?! Nope haha but hey, i say it works 🙂
Awww, your black cat looks a lot like mine! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed your bday ! you sound like me with the complaining that im old part lol yet 24 is nothing ! cant wait to hear how good you do at your half marathon :-)!
Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel
hahahaha pinecone. loved this!! and happy belated birthday!! kick butt on that half!! 🙂 can’t wait to read all about it! ❤
Erin @ The Elliptical Chronicles
The husband and I skipped a V-day celebration on Thurs. too. (Although, I did splurge on a card and a few dark chocolate bars for the fella – I don’t bother baking b/c he somehow eats only 1/24 of whatever it is I bake and I inhale the rest. Who prefers a dark chocolate bar to yummy icing-ed cake?!) I have hopes of doing something Sunday night, and by “doing something” I mean going out for booze and food and a exchanging well-intentioned snarky comments expressing our appreciation and love for each other 😀
I thoroughly enjoyed your “big-boned” horse picture, by the way!
Good luck with the half and happy birthday!
Life's a Bowl
Hahaha – your cats are adorable! I’m more of a dog person but I’d date a tuxedo dressed cat any day 🙂 And major props for being creative with the cookie – big fat blob or not, a cookie is a cookie and is still delicious!
My pup Bo was my Valentine unless you count my long distance BFF?
I would have ate that heart cookie, raw and all. Hopefully not all in one sitting though!
Aww, I really like your heart cookie! And not going to lie, raw cookie dough is pretty much amazing, so I probably would have dug right in! 😉
Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 🙂
I am in desperate need for that cat tuxedo…hooooomygodddd! amazing. Have an awesome birthday and good luck on the half! I’ll send you positive vibes this weekend 😉 They are so powerful that they usually work…so get ready for em 😛
We celebrated valentine’s day this weekend instead of thursday, too. Hope you were able to run this weekend and had a glorious birthday!!!
Lisa @ Lisa the Vegetarian
Happy birthday! I love that pic of the cat in the tuxedo – the look on his face is adorable. For my vday, by bf and I had a low key dinner out and exchanged cards. Nothing too extravagant here!
I’m going to need the tie that cat is wearing as well. Or your cat can wear the tie,and I’ll get Esme a bridal veil.
DONE! Your second idea is better. Black puss wedding.
There once was a girl named Brittany.
Whose bum knee didn’t want to do diddly.
Her sorrows she did drown,
In cookies and cats who frown.
Birthday wishes to you in a litany.
Happy Birthday. Sorry, Brittany’s a tough rhyme. Hope you got to run.
This was truly amazing.
Happy Birthday!!! That cookie and fat (bloated?) horse made me laugh!!
Your cat definitely needs a tux! And happy late bday!
What a lovely post. You made me smiled and laughed! Thank you. Boy, that Oldify app is too funny! And I really enjoyed your picture of the big boned horse! 🙂 Happy birthday and hope you had a wonderful celebration with your loved ones.
Happy Birthday! I celebrated my best friend’s 28th birthday and we drank like we were 21 to try and prove a point, but all we proved is that we can’t drink like we could when we were 21. 24 isn’t old!!! Enjoy your youth. 😉 How did the half go?
Brittany @ DulceVie
Happy Birthday!! It sounds like you had a wonderful Valentines Day! All of the pics you posted cracked me up!
Nicole Marie Story
OMG! Happy birthday skinny mini!!!
Gwendolyn always selects the patches of grass with those “do not” signs. Ha ha ha!
She is so naughty like her mommy.
this post was so good. made me smile x
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because
Happy birthday, girl!!!! I love cats, so this sounds like a wonderful time.
Also, I hope your resting has been going well! I’ll be sending good luck your way for the race 😀
This post was hilarious! 😀 Hope your knee is doing better!
Epic cookie fail! My valentine was a dog, a boy, and a cookie cake. All was well in love land! I hope your birthday and your race were amazing and I can’t wait to hear how you did!
Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles
The heart cookie looks amazingly delicious…but bummer if didn’t cook all the way through. And I love the cat tuxedo– incredibly cute.
di @ life of di.
Love the heart cookie 🙂 And the big boned horse is hysterical!
oh that cat in the tuxedo nailed it. Even though I am scared of cats, have to admit you have a cute one! 🙂
hahahahahahha: I laughed all the way htrough this post: funny, funny 🙂 x
Happy Birthday Britt! Enjoy! Loved this little round up with so much going on … Especially that giant heart shaped cookie 🙂 XO
And of course that should read ‘late’ birthday. 😉 Blurgh!
Hey, watch the complaints there missy! There are those who would pay dearly to be 24 again. I’m one of them!
