    What a cute story! TGI’s isn’t so bad, at least they have good food and great happy hour specials!! LOL

    We’re beating the crowds, and going to do a late lunch on V-day. Not sure where we’re going yet…but it’s sure to be low key.

    We’d rather spend the big bucks on our fast-approaching wedding. =)

    • Wedding: July 2018 - Outdoor ceremony, banquet hall reception

    I actually really like the spirit of Valentines Day. Yes, it’s a commercial holiday, but the mister and I have a pact not to spend a lot on each other for V-day, and I think it’s makes our gifts more creative and fun. Plus I just really enjoy romance and hearts. 🙂

    This year we’re getting pizza, a bottle of wine and renting a movie. And I can’t wait!

    I put that I don’t care, but it’s not so much that I don’t care as I’m torn between the first two choices. I love having a special day to celebrate with my man (tho this year he’s far away, so I’m alone. sadface), but it really is ridiculously over-hyped. Then again, I’m the biggest Christmas fanatic ever, and I’m an atheist so it’s not even a "real" holiday for me. So I can hardly complain about the consumerism of V-day when I give in to it SO much at X-mas. ^_^

    That being said, I didn’t like it when I was the only single one of my friends and things like that. I like how women have taken over and do the vagina monologues on V-day, it gives a good alternative way to celebrate, but still. I wish there was a good way to have a day to celebrate love that didn’t make the singles sad.

    We don’t have any plans other than our usual Saturday night — I’m not one to get excited about Valentine’s Day, and since it’s on a Saturday, we’d be spending it together anyway.  I hope he didn’t get me anything, because he’s supposed to be engagement ring shopping soon — he should spend the money on that!

    This post just reminded me that I send my Dad a card every year for V Day and I haven’t done that yet! I better get it in the mail! And yet I remembered to send him money I owed him yesterday…sheesh.

    • Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House

    The mister and I are doing dinner in the city (Bookbinder’s in Philly) using a Restaurant.com gift certificate to defray some of the cost.

    I’m with Miss Pinot Grigio – we’d rather spend the $$ on our wedding. So… no gifts this year, just a low-key dinner (we both work Saturdays).

     

    @Doctorgirl – that move-in story is so cute!

    We agreed not to get each other anything.  Nor go out in our crazy overpopulated area.  So we’ll most likely spend time together at home.  Maybe cook dinner, watch a movie & drink some wine.  =)

     

    Oh and I checked don’t care either way!

    We usually don’t do anything but this year has started off BAD (think 2 funerals in a period of 9 days) so my Fiance told me to be free Saturday as he has a relaxing thing planned. It will be nice even if his something planned involves us sitting on our couch watching reruns.

    • Wedding: May 2018 - Coyaba Resort, Montego Bay

    We’re just heading to the little Italian place on the corner for a late dinner.  I agree with PP – I love the spirit of Valentine’s Day, regardless of it being a "Hallmark" holiday.

    Then the real fun happens on a Sunday around V-Day, when we host an annual brunch that is the party of the year (okay, only in my mind…but still!).  It is always a blast & I can’t wait for Sunday!!

    Where’s the "I’ll celebrate any holiday as long as it comes with chocolate" option?

    Something simple and romantic…. my Fiance and I are going to go get a bottle of wine together (we r n a dry county so it will be a little bit of a drive) and then we are going to make parmesan chicken and wine.

     Simple and I think romantic

    We’re grilling out on the back deck (we want soooo bad for spring to be here) some steaks and salmon and cooking..My son is celebrating with us, and we’ll also make cookies!  We’re going over to T’s house and also watching some goofy movies that night.

    This year, Valentine’s Day is a family affair.  We will have our couple time in Jamaica in a few more weeks!
