Any big Valentine's Day plans for tomorrow? Do you and your SO give gifts?
I got him a card and will make heart/pink pancakes in the morning.
He's on my sh** list right now because I have to clean the house before relatives get here tommorrow and instead of helping me he is going out for wings and beer with his boys. (he goes out every wed and it usually doesn't bother me, but he should have helped last nigt then) arghh!
I'm not big on Vday. I'd rather get flowers some other random day than tommorrow.
We aren't big V-day celebrators. DH might get me a card or something. We don't spend a lot of money on gifts, so V-day is something that gets put on the backburner. We are going out without the kids on Friday night, but it's to a church function, so not really exciting!
I'm planning on making some sugar cookies with the kids today. Tomorrow they'll take Valentine's to school for their friends, but that's about it
DH's birthday is a few days after Valentines Day so we rarely do much. We'll probably get take out and watch a movie after the kids go to bed. If DH stops working a a reasonable hour, its good enough for me. We don't do gifts really. I'll help the kids make him a Valentine and he usually brings us home a treat of some sort.
We don't normally do much. Maybe a balloon or a card. But this year I bought DH a chain to put his wedding ring on in the winter months, and to wear as is in the summer months. I gave it to him 2 weeks ago, but told him happy valentines month! So I think he might feel like he should do something for me. However, I also think there is a 99% chance that he will TOTALLY forget tomorrow is valentine's day. So probably nothing!
Valentine's day has long ago stopped being about DH and I. The kids and I actually made heart cookies today, and they made cards for each other and some of their friends. We will go shopping on Friday, and they can each pick out a treat on clearance.
I don't really get into the smaller holidays. In our house, the big ones are Christmas, Easter and the Super Bowl.
but he does have Friday off work for my ultrasound and we do have a babysitter for the afternoon to go eat at the new brick oven, REAL pizza place near his parents. But it just happens to be V-Day. We have always gone out after the big ultrasound.
We aren't really doing anything. I'll put a lot of heart shaped food in DD's daycare lunch which is always fun. I also got her a stuffed puppy and a small thing of chocolates. DH and I aren't celebrating this year. We normally go out for dinner but he's doing this no-carb thing this week and we're saving for our trip. I was going to do take out before he started his silly no carb thing...blah. We'll eat out on our trip a bunch I'm sure!
DH gave me some flowers, a cute teddy bear that says princess on it (haha) and a really sweet card that MIGHT have made me cry. I gave him a card, some hefty socks and some silk boxers with hearts on them. Nothing really expensive or anything. We'll take his mom out with us for Valentines Day this weekend. I think we'll go to Red Lobster.
We don't really celebrate it. Partly because we are cheap, and partly because I would rather him show me affection because he wants to not because of a silly holiday.
I think we'll go to Red Lobster.
Ummmmm...I LOVE Red Lobster. We don't have one around here so I'll be definitely hitting on when we're on holidays next month. No guilt garlic butter.
Heather, I haven't been to Red Lobster in probably 5 years. I used to really like their restaurant and their food but the one that's semi-near my house has really gone downhill. The food isn't all that great and the service is horrible. I hope they've gotten better if that's where we go this weekend.
I, personally, would like to go to Romano's Macaroni Grill. :drool: It's Italian and soooooo freakin good. Like, way better than anything Olive Garden could ever do.
Oh please don't turn into a craving!! LOL There's not one near me. I will NOT think of Macaroni Grill I will NOT think of Macaroni Grill...
