Bruce Springsteen Valentines

** Nerdy post alert**

My family adores Bruce Springsteen. It’s been ingrained in our personalities since birth that Springsteen is the man. I was listening to The Boss on the way into work the other and had the funny idea to make Springsteen Valentines. You see, Bruce is pretty much the only person who can get away with telling a woman that they are just OK looking, but he loves them anyway. Any other man would get slapped for a comment like that, yet women still swoon over Bruce.

Off the top of my head, I could think of two instances in which Springsteen pulls this line. So I made my step mom and little sister cards with those lyrics:

“You ain’t a beauty, but hey you’re all right.” – Thunder Road

“I just can’t understand it, you’re not pretty at all. But I come when you whisper, I run when you call.” – I wanna be with you

I’m positive there are more examples, but none come to mind just yet.

Anyway, here’s the simple card I made for my Springsteen-loving family members — I’d never give them to anyone else because they would be so offended. But if you love The Boss, you’d love to get these valentines.

Hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day. B made a yummy breakfast and bought me some beautiful flowers. Then we got our favorite pizza for dinner and watched The Interview.

In other news, Brian was concerned Remmy was cold since it is all of 9 degrees in Maryland. So I gave Remmy and old hoodie, which was simultaneously the most adorable and hilarious thing ever.

He wore it all afternoon and slept in it last night. That dog never fails to crack me up.

The Boss

My dad, step mom, sister and I drove to Pittsburgh Tuesday morning to see THE BOSS! We tried to get into the pit with our GA bracelets, but we had no such luck this time. Even though we stood for hourssssss, the concert, as always, was amazing.

I love having this tradition with my family. Now we’re just crossing our fingers that he comes to D.C. later this summer!

Happy Friday.

Bruuuuuuuuuce

Last night was the long-awaited Springsteen concert and it was pretty awesome. Guess who got to touch The Boss twice? Yes, this girl 🙂 The concert venue was the most terrible venue ever (stick to baseball games, Nationals Stadium), which put a huge damper on our evening. But once we got going, it was epic as usual.

Today we are going to a wedding — Congrats, Andrew and Shannon. I’ll write about my wrist stuff tomorrow and show you a craft I’ve been working on. Have a great weekend!
