i am just interested in what everyone’s plans for V-Day are. We are going on a Couple’s Retreat in Dallas Feb 11-13. I am not quite sure what to do for V-day, because Hubby will have to go to work at 11 that night. Share your ideas and plans. 🙂

No plans yet, but we’ve already talked about doing a movie/dinner combo at this really fun and casual place. Another couple friend of ours says it’s their V-Day tradition, so we might steal it and adopt it as our own. 🙂 They said they wouldn’t mind. Haha. We’re just tired of having to get weird reservations at like 4:30 or 9:30 cause every place in town is super booked for V Day.
Your retreat sounds awesome.

@bryce234: I wish that we had a place like that here. That sounds fun. I am excited about the retreat. Do you think that we should just get gifts once we get back and call it even, since we’re doing the retreat. Or should we still do something between when I get off and he goes to work?
Humm…manybe I’ll go get some heart shaped things from Target and bake him some cookies. I made him Snickers Fudge last year.

The retreat sounds great!
No plans yet! We may go to our fav place to eat, though I would like to do a night away, but who knows!

hmm, that is coming up soon isn’t it! lol Probably not much. It would be nice to get away for a weekend depending on work and school schedule. Might have to postpone that to President’s Day weekend though. Last year we went to Westminster Kennel Club dog show heh

We were going to fly to NYC but that got cancelled because I don’t want to fly with new regulations. Yeh, I’m being touchy, but thats my problem. 🙂 Now, we are going to drive out to the Black Hills for some rodeo that he is very excited about. The 14th is also his birthday, so he kind of gets to pick his activities.

Our “dating anniversary” is on 1/28 so we’re going to do our “fancy” dinner that night.
For Valentine’s day, we’ll probably stay at home, pick out a new recipe, cook dinner together and relax watching a movie or sippin drinks in our hot tub… i’m hoping for snow outside that day! 🙂

@missjyc: Aww sounds perfect. Have a great time.

@PrncssDva: Snickers Fudge?! That sounds aaaaa-mazing…please share!
I doubt we’ll be doing much of anything. While I love Valentines, it’s never been a big thing w/ us. I’ll probably just end up making him a special dinner and movies 🙂

We are going out for dinner- we always chose a different local organic place. I think this year I might go to an organic steakhouse for Darling Husband (he rarely gets a steak!)

Years ago we started our own little tradition where one of us cooks for the other, and every year we rotate so this year it’s my turn to cook. It’s always nice, intimate, and we don’t have to deal with the crowds.

My hubby works every year during valentines day, so we can’t do a getaway, which would love!
My plan is to do appetizers and open a bottle of wine at home, then we’ll go skating or tobogganing by our house together and then out for a late night dinner. this was actually hubby’s valentines day plans a few years ago and it worked out really well.

@ams12: Maybe I started this thread too early lol
@JoesWifey: Yeah..you have a month 😉 The dog show actually sounds nice. I like watching it on tv.
@farmgirl2106: Cool birthday. It’s sweet of you to leat it be about him 🙂
@missjyc: Ooohh @ hot tub!
@cbee: I’ve never heard of there being an organic steak house. Yum!

@PrncssDva: What is a couple’s retreat? Is that something religious?
We will be in Florida visiting my husband’s aunt. I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day – i’d rather pick a different day to celebrate when we won’t be overcharged for going out to ridiculously crowded restaurants!
