@Scottish_lassie:  Our special plans are to swear not to buy anything and put it in our wedding fund since we only have 7 weeks and it’s getting critical πŸ˜‰ LOL. You sound like an amazing cook!!!

I’m making him brunch this Saturday and a bacon-rose bouquet (saw it on the boards here!). I have grad schol on actual Valentine’s day so it’s being put off until the weeked.

PS, your dinner sounds amazing! Can I come? lol.

nothing against anyone who celebrates VD…

We dont celebrate VD. I think it is a joke. Its just a holiday that card, flower and chocolate companies made up…what a joke. Just like most other “american” holidays…

Please dont hate me for saying that…I totally get why people like to celebrate it…

@Scottish_lassie:  Yummmm, that sounds delicious! I LOVE duck!

@LeRenard:  Can’t wait to see how the bacon bouquet turns out, you’ll have to post pics!

I will say that I unashamedly love Valentine’s Day. Sure, people call it a Hallmark Holiday but so what? Also, I don’t buy a card so I’m not giving in to Hallmark πŸ˜‰ To me it’s a fun day to do something nice for one another. We both are so busy with work, especially now that I work on weekends and we only see each other at night. It’s just nice to have a night to set aside to plan something special. We’re going out to dinner in the city after work and I also bought him a super soft, fancy robe (and myself a matching one, haha). He bought me a vintage ring that I picked out and I can’t wait to wear it!

Darling Husband and I are cooking some lobstertails and I’ll probably make some garlic mashes potatoes and maybe some garlic cheddar biscuits – just dinner at home and then dinner out this weekend for my birthday πŸ™‚

I know I’m getting flowers, and I am off on Tuesday, so we are going to sleep in, see the Vow at the matinee showing, and then have dinner at home.  We are having a fancy salad (it’s the Dole mix with the cheeses, and herb vinagrette), then cod with a tomato-olive relish over risotto, and chocolate cherry upside down cakes for dessert.  There are two bottles of wine, too Laughing  One is a Brotherhood Riesling, and the other is a Sisterhood Bitch Bubbly!  Can’t wait to try that one!

We are going to a mardi-gras themed ball downtown. 3 course meal, dancing, drinks, the works. I’m pretty darn excited!

We don’t really celebrate it. We already had dinner this past Saturday at one of our fav restuarants (we use holidays and birthdays as an “excuse” to splurge!) and we’ll exchange cards. That’s about it.

One year, we agreed to go out to dinner and not get eachother gifts. So, I didn’t get him anything. He ended up getting me a card and something small and I felt TERRIBLE! He was upset that I didn’t get him anything, and I felt guilty and tricked. We’re way over it now,  but he still teases me about the “year I didn’t get him anything for Valentine’s Day”. 

In short- candy makes me fat, flowers die and I don’t wear mall jewelry. Show me you care without those things on a designated day, and I’ll be happy.

We don’t ever really celebrate it either. But I am totally making that bacon bouquet for him (yay for whoever posted that!). LOL So besides that, just another day.
