    My husband and I went to our favorite resturant. We brought the employees cupcakes and we had a very nice meal and some time to talk since we both work so much we dont get much talk time.

    I had no Valentine this year….so I spent a quiet day & evening at home reading a new book. And have some cuddle time with my 16 week old Golden Retriever puppy Landry.

    Got in a fight with my husband over laundry not being done (all his laundry was done on Sunday, so I don’t know what he’s talking about). Maybe he should do his own laundry considering he gets home 3 hours before me! Happy Valentine’s Day to me!!!

    I did the mom duties during the day, then after the older kids and husband got home from school and work we made dinner together and ate in front of the tv with a romantic comedy on. My kids blused the whole time, but it was so much fun. I think we’ve started a new family tradition for V-day! :heart:

    The hubby and I dropped off kids at school and then went out for a lovely breakfast. During breakafast he apologized for not getting me flowers, card or a gift. I told him its okay since I know he’s been super busy with work. As long as we spent the day together. After breakfast he told me that he had to pick up a part for his dad in the city. I told him its fine I will tag along. It was a beautiful sunny warm day in San Francisco. As we drove on this street had pink & red balloons attach to each parking meter. It was so cute seeing pink & red balloons bobbing all the place. Next thing I see is he’s parking right across my favorite jewelery store Alex & Ani. They are made in America cute bangles. He turn to me and said “Surprise! I really didn’t need to pick any part just used that as an excuse”. He got me good! I picked out to bangles one that said LOVE and Cupid’s Heart. The rest of the day consisted of grocery shopping, after school pick up, homework & pizza with the kids. It was a lovely day! I love that man!!

    I spent a few hours after classes with my boyfriend’s mom chatting about books and life, followed by some time with his younger brother and sister (8 and 10) then went home to meet my boyfriend and we made crescent roll pizzas and opened our presents. I got an infinity knot necklace which is gorgeous and matches the tattoo he gave me for Christmas and ear muffs with headphones to listen to music when we go to his hockey games. We ended the night curled up on the couch with our kitty and watched a movie, it was a romantic lazy night in and perfect :)

    Tabatha S says:

    I decided that Vday is too geared towards the ladies, so this year I decided to do nice things for my hubby. I made him a bag of goodies with the new James Bond movie included, and left that on his desk at work while he was in a meeting. Then I made him a lovely dinner and we watched his new movie. :)

    I had class last night. We discussed The Great Gatsby (love!), then we wrote (working on an M.F.A. in creative writing). When I got home, my husband had a dozen yellow roses, my favorite, on my bureau which I’m certain my son arranged. Our son will be at grandmom’s for an overnight so my husband and I have a date tonight.

  64. 64

    My boyfriend and I ate dinner with my mom and then we went to his house to exchange presents. We’re also supposed to go out to dinner on Sunday, just the two of us, to celebrate. With the way both of us are working right now, it’s hard to find time to accommodate both of our schedules.

    I napped, read, snuggled with the dog, slept, read, made the hubby goulash (which is the only thing he suggested), slept some more, read some more… working third shift is getting to me… oh and played phone tag with my daughter. Actually it was an enjoyable day!

    Sounds like you had the perfect valentine’s day, Carly! I spent mine sending valentine cards to my favorite authors and then went to dinner with my wonderful parents/best friends at The Olive Garden. We watched the Grace Card after that, I cried so much but it was an INCREDIBLE movie :)

    Found out we were going to be Grandparents again. Our son and his wife are going to have another baby later this year. I also went to a meeting, came home and read some more of my book. In the evening we went to church and had soup and sandwiches after. Came home and read some more. I did not go to bed until I finished the book and it was very late, but it was such a good book.

    Cari says:

    Nothing terribly exciting. I was supposed to have a root canal, but it was postponed to Monday. Living on Vicodin at the moment. My hubby is so sweet and taking care of me.

    Of course, I’m not big on Valentine’s day. The anniversary of when we met is soooo much more important to me. January 31st was 26 years together. Our 23rd wedding anniversary will be in June. I’m more in love with my hubby now than ever.

    Sue Peace says:

    We did nothing out of the ordinary! My husband is not the most romantic man on the planet, lol, but I’d rather he did something for me because he wanted to, not because he felt like he had to because it was a specific day if that makes sense…Anyway, I came of another night shift, slept the day away and felt hungover for the rest of it! Back to it tonight now…Really, my books are the most exciting part of my life sometimes, lol!!!

    V-Day was also my husband and my 6th wedding anniversary! We both have bronchitis, though so we just went to bed as soon as the kids were down. He gave me a great card, though! It looks very serious, and on the outside it says “Sweetheart, I don’t tell you often enough…” Then on the inside it says “…but you have a great butt!” Hahahaha!

    Cleaned the bathroom!

    Actually that is the truth as we don’t make a great deal about Valentine’s Day and Friday is bathroom day *shrugs* Well at least I got a treat of Haagen-Daz Cookies and cream ice cream after the meal hubby cooked for me :D

    TRICIA says:

    Lets see!!!Hmmm
    My 12 year old decided to take a shower and locked the front door with the key lock and the chain lock. When I got home I couldn’t get in the house. After 5 minutes of yelling for him to open the door and ring the door bell, I started to get nervous. I started to bang on the door and pulled a part of the door frame from the wall to get in. Hubby came home and had a fit that i screwed up the door frame and locked him self in the bedroom. 12 year old tells me he doesn’t feel well and has had a sore throat for the last few days. 2 hours later Hubby finally comes out of the bedroom, I grab my purse and cell phone (learned my lesson not to put my purse in the bedroom) and took 12 year old to the walk in clinic.

    Finally I come home shower and make myself a Valentine’s dinner (peanut butter and jelly) and then 12year old tells me he needs a report typed.

    I didn’t even get a card or a verbal Happy Valentine’s day. :(

    We gave flowers to our dental receptionist of over 30 years (she was thrilled), shopped to buy me more flowers (as husband gave MY flowers with the receptionist’s flowers by mistake), visited good friend with leukemia (giving her my newest flowers and some homemade cookies, as she can still eat even though she has days left to live), out for supper at new restaurant (we loved it), a couple of hours at the badminton club, and a long soak in the tub with a book. All time well spent.

    Jody B says:

    Valentine’s Day is my hubby’s birthday! So I always do what ever HE wants to do, which I’m sure is a change compared to some women :) Last night we went to dinner and drinks with friends and kept it pretty low key. It was really nice!

    I made heart-shaped sugar cookies with my middle son and decorated them with neon-pink frosting with my daughter. I made heart-shaped naan bread to go with dinner. We bought cheap, fake flowers and left them on my husband’s desk because he chose to work very late.

    Valentine’s Day is our eldest child’s birthday and he opted to celebrate his birthday with the family on Sunday! All these years we always gave the
    day over to him & Honey and I would go out on another day for dinner or
    whatever. This year we actually got to celebrate on Valentine’s Day with
    dinner and beautiful flowers! Great dinner, by the way! Thanks, Honey!
    Happy Birthday, David!

    I printed a bunch of cute sayings and posted them all over the house before I left for work. He gets home before me so that was his gift. I did the same thing for my 17 year old son who is going off to college next year. (boohoo). They both wrote me a poem (that’s all i wanted). It’s a tight money year so it was just about good feelings.

    When I got home my husband had made a little green heart with “kiss me” written on it. He had cut it out of a sticky note and stuck it on his shirt right over his heart. It was so cute. I’m not sure whether it was really, really cute and sweet or a cry for attention. I’ll take it as really sweet. He had already done the flower thing earlier in the week.

    Hi Carly!

    Our 43rd Anniversary was on the 7th right before the blizzard struck and every year we plan a special dinner at home to celebrate Valentine’s Day but life got in the way this year when my husband was rushed to the hospital after shoveling 3 feet of snow.

    He ended up needing to get two stents in his heart and as it happened he ended coming home on Valentine’s Day. Our dinner that night ended up being the best one ever because it made us both realize how fortunate we are that for one more year we were able to celebrate Valentine’s Day together. Since we had married when he was serving in the Navy during Vietnam for years we hadn’t realized that even now that the one you love can be taken from you in the blink of an eye and how fortunate we are to still be together after all these years.

  198. 198
    Gale Sroelov says:

    While everyone else was celebrating, hubs and I went new washer/dryer shopping as we close on our new house next week! Hey, we had the store to ourselves and actually had fun. Met a great “nice” salesperson who will earn a good commission from two folks who did their homework before anything was sold.

    But it worked for us! I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day and a wonderful holiday weekend!
