My birthday is 12 days before Valentine’s Day and my SO’s is the week before mine.  So, I doubt we’ll do anything specific.  Maybe just dinner at home and a movie on the couch.  I might get him a card.  Definitely no gifts.

loz24 :  Birthday twins! My birthday is 13th Feb too. 

I don’t normally celebrate Valentine’s Day…mainly because it’s so near my birthday and our anniversary is the week before too…we always go to the same restaurant we went to for our first date on our anniversary…so we use that as our special date night in February.

Usually we don’t do anything on the day, but on the 15th Darling Husband takes me to the grocery store and lets me go hog-wild on all the discount chocolate and candy.  Godiva, here I come!

We reserved a private “tub” at some nearby hot springs in the mountains. We’re going up the weekend after V-Day. We’ll also go out on a date, get drunk, and run home to bed πŸ™‚ but that will also be over the weekend. We both work late so we aren’t doing anything on actual Valentine’s Day.

Food and sex. This year, I’ll be 35.5 weeks pregnant, so maybe just a bit of awkward sex? Hahaha, just kidding. I can’t stay up for it.

one year we didn’t do anything. last year we went to dinner and exchanged gifts. this year we will be on vacation so we will probably just do vacation-y things. if we exchange gifts we will do it after we get back. i’m not hauling gifts all over europe. lol

We used to alternate going out to dinner and him making me a special meal (he rarely cooked). This year, I think I’ll ask my mom to watch our daughter so we can spend quality time together – but it’s also a work night, so it won’t be much time.

happybridetobe1988 :  yay! Clearly the best date to be born! 

One of the reasons I hate Valentine’s Day is that if we go for a birthday meal on my birthday the staff will ask if we’re working tomorrow and it’s an early V-day meal. No. This is my day and my darling husband treated me tonight because it’s my day.

Hopefully getting a BFP!

 

We’ve been TTC for 8 cycles now and my POAS date is Feb 13, so I’m hoping I get to surprise Darling Husband with a pregnancy announcement as a Valentines Day gift πŸ™‚

It’s not that big of a deal to me. We’ll exchange cards, and he’ll bring me roses, which I’ll hide in the bathroom so my cats don’t eat them. Then we may or may not go out to dinner. That’s about it! We don’t really have any cute couples traditions for Valentine’s Day.

All I asked to do was for my husband to take me to see Twister at the drive in which is playing the week before. But I’m sure we’ll have dinner.

We will be heading to safari on our vacation in South Africa. I’m sure the lodge will do something special but really we don’t normally celebrate with anything other than a nicer home cooked meal which is more than perfect for us πŸ™‚
