Squee! That is so exciting!

I know Valentine’s Day ruffles a lot of feathers for some because it is so commercial, restaurants and everything are over priced, etc… Personally, I love the holiday! Not because of the gifts and the spoiling, of course, but I love an occassion that is meant to celebrate the love you share with someone, even if others argue that every day should be that way. Some even argue that is what anniversaries are for. To them I say bah! Is it so bad to celebrate more than once a year? Or taking any and every opportunity to celebrate? You don’t need to spend a lot of money! Just use it as an excuse to do cute, cheesy romantic stuff together.

My SO is doing the same for me. I have no idea what the plan is, and it was totally unexpected. I’ve never had a guy totally take over and want to surprise me. I also highly doubt there will be a proposal; that doesn’t disappoint me, I don’t expect one yet (even if I am all over ready to say yes!). I’m just super thrilled to see what my darling SO could possibly come up with or has in mind to want to do this. I’m a giddy school girl over it. Like you, we aren’t celebrating actually on the 14th. Instead, we’re celebrating on the Sunday right after. My SO is a chef so his busiest and longest work days are holidays, especially Valentine’s Day. We’ll still see each other (I’ll most likely drive to see him once he gets off work since we live an hour apart and I wouldn’t want him to drive two hours — since he works an additional hour away from where he lives — to see me after an exhausting work day), but it will jbe low key and just relaxing. Then on Sunday it is surprise time! Eeek!

Definitely post an update of what your SO planned and how you two spent Valentine’s Day. 🙂

@KickDrumHeart:  oh my!! That’s so exciting! Even if it wasn’t a proposal, the fact that he’s planning something just for you is amazing enough! Please please let us know what the surprise is! 🙂

 

@alt_bride:  yes, exactly! I hate the V-Day scrooges. Why can’t I show my SO some love everyday, but celebrate it on 2/14 too? I don’t hear anyone (mostly) saying, “Ooh we shouldn’t celebrate Christmas, it’s stupid, we should be in the spirit of giving every day!!” Blah blah yes, you should but let me have my holiday, man! Lol.

 

I’m so excited for Valentine’s Day…I told Mr. H that he shouldn’t make any plans for the Saturday (2/15) because I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve and I don’t want us to end up getting jumbled logistically by not knowing the other’s surprise plans. He goes, “oh, that’s perfect, because I need you to not be busy on that Friday. I’ve been planning too.” :)))

@MrsHalpert:  Someone who gets it! Recognize the commercialism, sure, but don’t let capitalist society ruin something that you could have a lot of fun with, look forward to, and simply enjoy together. Besides, while you can show love every day of the year, sometimes you just want to spoil yourselves and save up to drop a shiney penny or two on an elegent meal and bottle of champagne. You certainly can’t do that every day of the year to show love. Take the excuse and run with it is what all those negative Nancy’s need to do!

D’awwww, super cute! So many warm fuzzies when the SO’s get sneaky… You keep us updated too!

@KickDrumHeart:  Aww, glad it was romantic though.  🙂  I had to post to ask if you are an Avett Brothers fan.  Your username suggests you are.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them, and am hoping I didn’t guess wrong with your nick!  :p
