My Valentines day was pretty great! We went to bed the night before and he gave me my first gift since it was after midnight (which was the newest Simpsons dvd season) I’ve been wanting it since November. When I woke up our son had set up a scavenger hunt for me and he was so sweet he found this baby Groot bobblehead I thought was adorable and he got me a wedding game to play along with an adorable card. He saved his allowance for weeks to buy me those things himself, he’s a sweetheart. After the scavenger hunt my SO surprised me with a dozen red roses he somehow snuck in yesterday when we went to the mall together. He then gave me a sweet card too, he wrote THE MOST ADORABLE things in it. Then he took me to the store to pick out a dress since he made reservations somewhere secret for dinner. He bought me a beautiful dress, sweater and picked up some wine and cheesecake for when we returned home after dinner. Then we got ready and headed to dinner while his mother babysat our son. It was delicious to say the least! We had filet mignon at a golf course restaurant called Fiddler on the Green. After dinner he surprised me with tickets to see 50 Shades of Grey which wasn’t bad, we actually both liked it. Then we went home to share our cheesecake and wine before bed. 

I did not get a proposal but at a few points I thought it might happen LOL. He asked me if I wanted to wear the ring, odd yes and I asked him about it later in the night when we returned home. He said he just wanted me to feel special and beautiful in every possible way. He sees it as jewelry clearly LOL. He still is waiting to give me the ring though because he ‘has a plan’. Even though he has a plan or a few plans there was another point in time I think he may have proposed yesterday. He had a 2nd Valentines card he decided not to give me yet and wouldn’t tell me why. The day before that he kept bringing up the ring and asked what I would do if he proposed on Valentines day (I guess because when he purchased the ring in November I asked that he not propose in February). He may have been testing the waters since he had planned such a lovely day for me and decided against it. I guess NOW I am glad he didn’t propose yesterday but yesterday I really wanted him to. Just my waiting brain getting weary. It was a beautiful day though I’m so glad we are together, oh and I got him a huge box of his favorite chocolates with a card. He kept saying he didn’t want anything but I had to get something, we both agreed this was the best Valentines day we ever had.

zippy85:  How old is he? Getting drunk mid-day with friends when he knew the two of you had plans, passing out, tonight eating Pizza Hut in bed as happy as a clam – this reminds me of college! Either he is young/immature or he just got nervous about holiday pressure and overdid the drinking to calm down. You can probably work through this with him.

littlechickie:  We’re almost 30!  He’s in grad school finishing law degree.   He’s a good guy but he quickly reverts back to frat boy days sometimes.  We talked about it, and he got excited and drank too much – he wasn’t nervous.

I didn’t get proposed to but I wasn’t expecting it either. My SO has always said he thinks it’s a cop-out to propose on special days like V day, Christmas, birthdays, etc. When I finally asked him why he thought that, he said it’s like getting out of buying an extra gift because the ring is the present but you would be giving it any other day anyway. Honestly, I don’t care when he does it, but oh well.

We woke up in the morning and snuggled for a bit then he suddenly got out of bed. I thought he was just going to the bathroom but he came back in with the most perfect long-stemmed rose I had ever seen. It honestly looked like something out of a painting. So beautiful!! Turns out he got up extra early to buy it while I was still sleeping and snuck back into bed without waking me. That evening I cooked us a special steak dinner (we normally go out to dinner but I’ve been away for a few weeks and just wanted to stay home and spend some alone time together). We then exchanged gifts. Next we lit some candles and ate strawberries with our favourite white chocolate dipping sauce while we snuggled up on the floor (we set up a little tent area hehe) and watched a movie. Then for a late-night dessert we had a delicious Nutella cheesecake that my sister had made. All in all, a pretty perfect night that was so “us”.

No proposal but I definitely wasn’t expecting it. We have had serious discussions about our relationsip and where it is headed, and I think we are both happy and comfortable in the “We know we probably will, but not right now” phase.

We went away to the mountains for the weekend. A friend of his graciously let us borrow her apartment so we could have some quality alone time away from work, families, etc. It was very enjoyable for us. We went hiking and watched a bunch of movies, cooked together, pretty much everything we love doing. We had a great time!

At one point he gave me a glass of sangria and said “Para ti, mi mujer” (For you, my lady). I told him that in some Spanish-speaking regions “mujer” means “wife” as well and I asked jokingly “Which is it? Am I your wife?” and he said, “Well, not yet.” So little things like that make me understand he’s thinking about it.

Overall, we had a really good weekend! I want to go back to it already!
