I think you have the right idea! Special food, candlelit bath, quality time together… what more could a person really want? I don’t think it has to be complicated.

Do the bath thing! AND drink champagne while you do it. I don’t care if that’s cheesy, thats some good ol’ fashioned fun if you ask me… Or at least it leads to it. 🙂 I also like the breakfast idea too, but I’ve got nothing to add to that.

Make him some lasagna for supper, and even if your daughter is there, I’d still do it by candlelight or dim light. I bet it’d be fun for her too. You could watch a movie and snuggle. A lot of good movies just came out on DVD, both family friendly and not (no I’m not referring to X-rated, but if thats your cup of tea, or you don’t mind it but don’t usually do it, that’d be a “treat” too).

Otherwise, it sounds like a good night that isn’t too cheesy, but it’s still special.

I like the breakfast in bed idea, and if you’re trying to cut costs – the coupon book that BlueBanana suggested would be very cute 🙂

I’m going to make crabcakes and steak for dinner – we’re not planning on going out either.

Haha, me too. I always feel like I have to wear heels too, even though I know that’s silly of me. Darn you television and film! Does he have a favorite drink? Like my husband loves Crown Royal or Pendleton, which are both expensive, so get him a bottle of that and some Coca Cola while you sip your pink bubbly.

I’m still figuring it out for sure…It’s hard for us because we won’t see each other for most of the day because of his school schedule and my work schedule. I plan on doing some little things throughout the day to let him know that I love him:

– Making him coffee in the morning, with a fun note (and maybe breakfast? He has to leave by 8:15 and doesn’t usually eat breakfast beforehand, so maybe something he can take with him)

– While he’s gone, I’ll make him lunch (something that he likes) and leave it for him with another fun note.

– When I get home, I want to bake something sweet. Then set up our room with candles and hot chocolate and…well, I’m still figuring out what else :-P. But I know I want it to be a place where he can relax when he gets home (at 9:30ish that night)

My mom would make pancakes and serve them on her grandma’s rose pattern china when we were kids.  We’d also each get a little box of chocolates.  I’m hoping to continue the tradition.  I think the bath thing is a great idea as well.
