For Valentine's this year, I will be sitting in the audience, saying my prayers and cheering on my daughter Ashlyn while she competes in the Junior Miss Pagent. Good luck Ashlyn!!!!!

Since my due date is the 12th of Feb., my husband and I celebrated with a dinner date this last Friday. But I told him there still needs to be a little surprise on the actual V's day. So hopefully, on Valentine's Day, this year I will be holding a new born baby boy!!

Anna said...

My husband and I are taking the kids to his parents house and then going to dinner and a movie. Our Valentine Phantom will leave goodies on the door step for our children too. Its a day we are all looking forward too.

Katie said...

wow--i'd love either of those. I also need the ideas for v-day. I'm making cookies for my kids to decorate, leaving them treasures in the mailboxes and not sure what to do with/for my husband. We are not spending money this month...any ideas for that?

Chalece said...

This Valentines Day we're not doing much more than a nice dinner (which I'm hoping my husband will make...we'll see!). Reason? I am going to Miami in March with my husband! Woohoo!

Natalie Wyeth Backus said...

My husband is in law school so the budget is tight. So this year we decided we would dress up and stay in! We will make a nice dinner and dessert( You know candles, china, etc.). Then dance to a mix of our favorite love songs. I'm so excited, it will be great.
P.S. I am starting a blog that is for cheap date ideas. My husband and I have a goal to have a date night every weekend, but we only have a $60.00 budget for the whole year.

You guys are so exciting with the giveaways! What a fun Valentine's idea!

Rich and Lacee said...

What a fun idea...giveaways! We are planning to go out to dinner and a movie.

Jill said...

We'll stay in on the actual day because we have tickets to see Fiddler on the Roof at the end of the month. Happy Valentine's Day!

Kristy said...

I don't know for sure. I know we will be delivering some goodies to teachers and maybe trying a new cookie recipe. I'm trying to leave the romantic stuff up to the hubby but that may backfire right into my face!

Calise said...

Valentine's day is also my husbands birthday, so we are celebrating at a cabin with his family!!
We are excited to get away, and to have a lot of fun playing rockband (what he is getting for his big day!)

Oesterle Family said...

Unfortunately Ella and I are on our own since my Tyler has call.

The Paynes said...

Every year, I make a Surf and Turf dinner, late, after the kids go to bed. We light candles, sip sparkling cider and eat the yummy food. We used to go out, but the restaurants were so busy and we hated having to pay for a sitter.

Kiera said...

Well I know this sounds weird but every year since we started dating we have gone to Borros for V-day! Neither of us are the romantic type and we love pizza and NO one is ever there.. so we love it! This year we are going to Ashlyns Jr. Miss pageant.. but we will probably get Pizza before.. and we usually watch a chick flick sometime at night to!!

The Mortensens said...

Yippeee, a give away! For Valentines we have a week full of celebrating. At some point, we'll probably cut out and decorate paper hearts, decorate sugar cookies at our house with Dad, decorate sugar cookies with our apt. complex, play games and do v-day stuff at play-group, and celebrate with cousins (we'll be going to Rochester for the weekend). On the actual day, my hubby and I will probably go see a movie and get some very romantic dessert, called ice cream, from the grocery store!

kwh said...

Wow - a lot of you are so creative! Like many, we're on a pretty tight budget AND my brother-in-law will be in town this weekend, so we won't be doing much. I am hoping to receive some kind of surprise from my husband and I plan on making him something yummy (maybe choc chip cookies-his favorite) and a card. And Lucas' class does a Valentine's Exchange, so I'll be sending something to his class for that.

Leigh said...

I'm so excited that I actually thought of a fun surprise for my husband. He is always so good and I can be a dud. We have a favorite waffle that we have had at hotels when traveling, so I was able to find a similar waffle iron and ordered the waffle mix online. It will be fun to surprise him that morning for breakfast seeing as he is the one usually making breakfast on weekends (he's a pro). Although I don't keep secrets very well and will have to try really hard to NOT spill the beans before Saturday!

Ryan and Denyse said...

Love the Giveaways!! For V-day we're going to the botanical gardens with the free tickets my friend got. Then probably making some yummy dinner at home, nothing too exciting for us :)

Angel said...

I'll be recovering from having my wisdom teeth removed :(

Jingle said...

We are staying home and having a normal night. Although, I did consider using it as an excuse to make waffles and bacon for breakfast! LOL! We have never done Valentine's. My birthday comes two days before so we celebrate that!

~Love Giveaways~ said...

Ohh awesome! We'll be staying in and enjoying each other's company. I got my mom to take the kids overnight. Whoohoo! I would love to win this! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Stacie said...

Well since i'm single, I'm gonna treat myself to some chocolate on V-day, other then that it will just be a normal day. Thanks for entering me.

Amber said...

I will be staying in and pigging out on candy, and watching some sappy movies on DVD :) My man will be out of town :(

Thanks for the great ideas! All I had planned was to make heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast. I tried heart shaped tortillas one year, and those didn't wrap very well. :P Maybe I will collude with my sister in law to kidnap my husband. :)

So far no plans, I am trying to get a sonogram in before Saturday so that I can have the tech put the results in an envelope and dh and I can open together on V day. But we will see.

Abigail @ Pearls and Diamonds said...

This year I'm focusing on respect--and compiling some great survey answers on the topic for posting on our blog Pearls and Diamonds!

justin and jess said...

Last year on Valentines day Justin and I actually saw P.S. I love you, good movie! I don't know what we are doing yet. Justin has not yet informed me. But I am sure that it will be a romantic few days for us since our 2 year anniversary is 3 days later on the 17th. I love those few days o' love for us!

Jenny said...

Well we like to celebrate valentines on Thursday night if we go out, so we can avoid the crowds. Of course if Valentines falls on Thursday then we go on Monday. Anyway so yesterday we did sealings and then dinner at home. I guess James does have something planned for Saturday morning.

DEBIJOT said...
