Yeah, we never get time alone do this is special. I'm making a bunch of stuff I found on pinterest but I'm not sure which ones I'm giving him for Valentines day or sending with him on his work trip next week. Whatever I get done first is going with him to open while he's gone. I have also been putting little love notes in the pockets of each of his work shirts when I iron them. Its cute, he's saving all of them :)
Aw, thats lovely.
We already reserved a sitter and will be going out to a romantic dinner.
We don't really buy gifts in our house, we make em. I hate roses too, lol. The one time my husband ever bought me flowers, they were Sunflowers, lol. The flower shop owner asked if they were for his mother, and he said, nah, they're for my lady. And the guy tried to sell him roses instead, but knew I hated roses.
I mean, yeah Valentines day is a Hallmark holiday, but, its what you make it, and the meaning of it could be different for everybody. We love each other year around appreciate one another, but taking a day out to really show someone that you love them is nice.
It's a Hallmark holiday where females expect to be showered with roses & chocolates. I hate roses & I can buy my own chocolate from Godiva. lol
