Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? Do you love it, hate it, or don't really care?
call me a miser but never been too openly affectionate nor was i ever given roses for the right reasons so this year as well as the past i told dh dont waste the money on it...he plans to cook me dinner and let me get a few more pairs of jogging pants. expecting him to say only 1 pair he told me to get 3 since they looked good. lol that was my pampering!
Don't really care. We save our money for holidays that really mean something to us. I'd rather go out to eat at a nice restaurant on a day when there aren't double the amount of people waiting to do the same thing. And if I get flowers, I love them, but they end up dying (whehter he gets a plant or cut). Jason is getting a chocolate puppy and I'll probably get some Godiva, but we don't need a holiday to let each other know we're appreciated and loved. I do adore all the pictures on facebook of goodies my friends got and knowing they are a little happier on that day makes me happy.
We're not big on it, but, DH does usually do something just for me, because he's Aussie, and they don't really celebrate V-day much. In years past he's made sure I got some flowers and some chocolate. We don't worry about a big dinner or anything... Not sure if we'll manage anything this year... his parents leave that morning, we both have to work that day until 5, we won't have a babysitter... maybe we'll just have sex. That would make it a pretty special day at this point! Ha!
I love Valentine's Day! Always have! I love the colors, hearts, roses, candies and cards. I've never let being single or whatever get in the way of me enjoying the day. I used to make all my friends heart shaped cookies in college.
Anyway my husband has asked me out to dinner for Valentine's day. Last year we had a romantic indoor candle lit picnic. We love to celebrate. Although sex sort of scares me right now... I've never had such a low sex drive!
Happy Valentine's day!
I don't think my husband has ever been home for an anniversary or Valentine's day since he's a trucker. So they don't really get celebrated. If he were here it would be nice to go out on a date night or something.
I enjoy valentine's day, we don't do the gift thing though. I hate wasting so much on flowers so that was nixed years ago! We go to our favorite place for dinner, literally that we only go to on v-day mainly due to price. And we just enjoy each other a little more. This year, we're taking Kaylin with us. We did get her a big stuffed bear and some huge v-day balloons that she's been mesmerized by everytime we go to the store.
