Its coming up fast!!! Does anyone celebrate? Boycott?
We dont go crazy but dh usually brings home flowers and chocolate for me and a new book or something small for dd. I bought shrimp when it was on sale a few weeks ago and froze it and I'm waiting on a good steak sale and I'll make us a nice dinner. And probably do some crafts with dd.
What about you guys?

 I usually get flowers and a card and we go out on a date.  I get the kids cards and some candy.

we celebrate, not w big expensive stuff lately well, not able!

dh & i met on Vday so it's an anniversary of sorts that we always honor.

we will do a nice meal that we prob cook together. we may not get each other anything...i dunno, tend to reminisce more than anything. we are going to get a lil balloon from dollar store, some lil candy thing for DD.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

Last year was the first year in 14 years that DH got me flowers, a bear and chocolate. We usually just exchange cards. I'm really not to big into this holiday with him - probably because our anniversary is just 3 weeks later. I do buy candy and make valentines with our kids.

DH and I do celebrate it.  I kinda like to splurge and get him romantic gifts.  He never really had someone to celebrate V-Day with before me.  I know its a commercial holiday but I still like to show my love for him.

I have no idea what to get him this year. I kinda want another tattoo lol.

Its DD favorite holiday so we celebrate it :) She loves it. I am puttin up all of our decorations today. I have craft projects, fun activities, and little surprises for the first 2 weeks of feb. 

Lunch - heart shaped PB&J

Dinner - Heart shaped Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravey - her fav., green beans, and love potion #9 - sierra mist or sprite with cherry koolaid icecubes.

havent decided on breakfast yet, but half the time we dont eat it anyways. 

I think total I have maybe spent $20-$30, but a lot of it is decorations that will go up that  I can use again next yr.
