I was just thinking about this today. I can’t remember ever doing anything special for Valentine’s Day, but I might like to make a special dinner at home, maybe attempt a fancy-ish dessert like a lava cake, and break out some good lingerie that hardly ever sees the outside of my underwear drawer. But it’s also on a Wednesday this year, and we’re going to be starting a stint of dog-sitting at a friend’s house that night, so maybe we can do the nice dinner/sexy times (not in that order) the weekend before or after instead. 

Also I might write Darling Husband a sweet note or something because he really is such a “words of affirmation” guy. He g-chatted me yesterday at work to tell me how much it meant to him the night before when I leaned over to kiss him on the couch and told him how good-looking he is. kiss

We’re (finally) seeing Book of Mormon the Saturday before!!! Sooooo excited! 🤗

Probably just hanging out at home on actual Valentine’s Day though.

BEEelegant :  Staying at home and chilling, that’s my favorite Valentine’s day honestly.

My fiance is so amazing every day of the year so Valentine’s day is just not an extraordinary day. Plus, we think it’s kinda stupid.  However, since he not only proposed last weekend, but took me to an amazing dinner and gave me some amazing gifts for my birthday, I will do something super special for him next weekend and that can technically be our Valentine celebration (and one week before the Vday crowds).

I get to have dinner with my kids and my ex-husband (if he decides to show up) since I have a valentine’s baby who will be turning 15 on the 14th. I will probably spend the morning taking said birthday boy to get his learner’s permit. After the birthday dinner, I will probably snuggle with my now-husband. Kid’s birthday takes precedent over romantic holiday!

I usually ask for (and ultimately get) a single rose. This year, I think we’ll have a nice made-from-scratch dinner along with baking something together. It would also be nice to play a board game. 🙂

We typically just exchange cards and either make dinner or go to one of our favorite thai restaurants. My Fiance usually also brings me flowers, but the cards are always my favorite part. My Fiance isn’t the type to get very mushy, but he always writes a heartfelt note, which is very special for me (I’ve kept them all). I also made him tear up one year with what I wrote in his card, which I considered a success tongue-out

I love valentine’s day. We usually get a couple lobster tails and do a fancy dinner at home with wine. A few little gifts and exchange cards.

It’s a wednesday, we’ll get home around 6:30pm, heat up some leftovers, watch a tv show and be in bed by 8:15pm.  Such is life.  We’re going tubing this weekend though, not for v-day, just for fun.

We don’t generally do anything big for V Day, but since this will be our first one as a married couple, we’re going to go see Black Panther, then go to an event that’s sort of like a “relive your wedding” thing with dinner and drinks and dancing.

He surprised me with tickets to the theater and and overnight at our fav hotel, which is dog friendly so our little dude can come too❤️ 

He is always super thoughtful, the last time we went to the ballet he had them do the roses and champagne thing in the room. 

While I would be just as happy at home with him and little dude, I appreciate having a partner who loves holidays and makes the most out of celebrating joy. He’s taught me a lot.

Meh, hubby works in the restaurant industry so he doesn’t usually have that day off. We usually go all out for birthdays and Christmas, so I prefer to keep V day low key which we end up celebrating on a different day anyway.

This year I’m going to gift him (and me) registration for an obstacle race we’ve been talking about. We will probably have a meal at home or possibly out and I expect he’ll buy me flowers (which he does often since I love flowers so much.)
