What Are Your Plans for Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is upon us and I am trying to figure out what the hubby and I are going to do. He is really not a big planner. He feels that Valentine's Day is a "Hallmark" holiday. He participates in it because I enjoy it and I really think deep down that he enjoys it to. Who does not enjoy a reason to eat chocolate and other sweet things?  In the past, we have gone out to dinner and either saw a movie or rented one. That would be fine again, but I am trying to figure out if I want make Mr. J a gift or purchase one. I think that a handmade would be more special especially since he is a very simple man. Luckily, I have a few weeks to figure it out. What are you doing for Valentine's Day or do you even celebrate Valentine's Day?

I have no idea what the hubs is planning for Valentine's day. He usually does a pretty good job of making the day special. I know he has something in the works so I will just have to wait and see.

As far as his gift, I've been keeping my ears open to see if he will hint at anything - and he has. So I've been taking mental notes.

Be sure to give us an update after V-day to let us know your final plans.

I really love all the romance that surrounds Valentine’s Day. I think Geof (my husband) only tries to make it nice because he knows that I like it. Last year I got really lucky because he had a work trip to Vegas and I got to tag along. We had the best dinner at Prime and saw “O” at The Bellagio. I don’t know if I’ll have another one like that.

This year we’re thinking of going on a short weekend trip, but it’s still up in the air.

I’m sure you know about this site, but has the cutest handmade items if you don’t feel like making anything. I still have no clue what to get for Geof.

You'll have to let us know what you end up doing ;)

The Peach Post--It sounds like your hubby is a planner. I hope you have a wonderful V-day and I will keep you posted.

Jules--I love Vegas. Everytime I have gone to Vegas either the winds are to high or the tickets are sold out for "O" so I could not see it. You lucky girl. That sound like a great V-day. Keep us posted on what you end up doing this year.

J kinda feels the same way as your husband about Valentine's Day--that's it's this contrived Hallmark holiday and that there's all this pressure.

But I love it. Also, it's my grandmother's birthday! So we always have a party for her. :) This year I got her this cute sparkly heart plate and some heart cups.
