Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Nope, no bling for me. I'm not a "bling" kinda gal (although I do salivate at those People's commercials :D ). I'm holding out for my Pentax *istD - but that's not likely to happen today unless it falls from the sky right into my waiting lap (*looks up hopefully*). Dh and I haven't done Valentine's day in a long time. I usually get something from my 6 year old that he made at school, and those really are the cutest gifts :love: , so I'm quite happy if I get nothing else. ;)

I left a card and a gift basket for the still sleeping Mrs. C when I left this a.m. and will return with an armful of flowers at the end of the day . . . . . hopefully earning me at least a hearty handshake from my spousette of 20.5 years. :highfive:

I got my stuff last week because the man was supposed to go to Gaspé for 3 weeks starting yesterday. But he's not going. So I guess that's my Valentine's day present: to have a boyfriend here on valetine's day to take care of me while I'm sick.:love:

Oh and an armful of flowers would be nice too, even if I just got some last week.;)

Can we put you in a bottle and spray that loving feeling on others. You are a prince among men!!

My oldest son got up at 4am and after hearing him bang around I went out to check what was going on (I thought Cocoa had jumped on a chair and was licking off the table, she hasn't done this but I wouldn't put it past her) So here is oldest son and he tels me to go back to bed I'll spoil the surprise. I hugged him and told him it was too early for a surprise. At 5:30 he came in our room and we very sleeppily told him to come back at 6:00 or 6:30.
The poor boy he'd made us breakfast!! By the time we ate it it was very cold. but he's a sweetheart.

Rick C we definitely need to bottle you up and spray our men!!!

Well, we went to a sushi lunch and they brought out complimentary champagne (which was nice, but sake would've been better) and Jim gave me some chocolate (Yum -- especially right now!) and he got me a moose for my garden. (I love having animals in my garden and I fell in love with this moose at Walmart and he got it for me.) I got him a fishing pole! And tonight we are just going to relax and watch a movie togther.

We don't do anything big for Valentine's Day. We just like to acknowledge it and spend time together -- though I would never deny the bling bling! :D

Does anyone else break chocolates open to see what is in the middle before you eat them???

We don't do anything huge for Valentine's day but Tom bought me a bottle of Pouilly Fuisse, which is my favorite wine, and I baked him a pecan pie, which is his favorite dessert. I think we're probably going to head out now for some sushi. :love:

We celebrated yesterday because Tomas has to work late tonight. We went to Hasta La Pasta which is the first restaurant we ever ate dinner together in. He got me 3 roses and a basket with two teddy bears, chocolate, and a picture frame in it. But the sweetest part was the card. It was a very simple card (with a dog on the front which he know I would love) but inside he wrote "If I could give you the world I would in a heart beat, but in the mean time here are a few things the world has to offer." He never EVER says anything romantic so that was a really nice surprise. Our relationship is on the rocks right now so him doing that and acting all lovey dovey made me feel really good.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :love:

Me and the hubby had a nice day, just spending time together, hubby took the day off and we spent some time together and with the littlest kids. I bought him a giant plush rose and I made him shadow boxes with keepsakes of our twins, their baby boots and mitts and a couple of pictures.
My hubby is also a man of few words, but he gave me a really sweet card, and he wrote some very sweet things inside. I'm gonna keep it on the mantle for a while.
I baked him his favourite brownies, and he made dinner.
All around a very nice and relaxing day.

I hear ya Prin, I have a wicked cough I just can't shake, I don't even think I've gotten to the bad part yet.

No, the ones I get I know by heart already.:D

My man made me crepes! (I'm bragging about it in every thread). He also did all the dishes. :love:

Well, after I spent the day yesterday telling everyone that we don't really "do" Valentine's day, hubby came home with one honker of a surprise. Mind you, it's supposed to be "ours", and it's supposed to count as our birthday/Valentine's Day/Mother's Day/Father's Day/Christmas presents to each other for the next 10 or so years. He got me an Olympus Evolt E-500 (http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/product.asp?product=1192) digital SLR. :D Boy, are you guys in trouble once I figure out how to use it! You'll be inundated with pictures of Phoebe from every conceivable angle! :p Now all I have to do is figure out if I can somehow claim this as part of the expenses for my business (how can I make a camera = engraving??), and then I'll be able to reclaim some of those birthday presents a little sooner. :highfive: :clown:

We both had to work yesterday - my hubby ordered me clothes from American Eagle and got my some roses too. I was really last minute I got him a card - some chocolates and a picture frame - I was going to stop at the jewllery store on the way home - but its gone out of business - and I had to rush home so he could go to work. We will probably go out for dinner or something when we have some time off together.

Mrs. C retaliated by getting me a couple more games for the Play Station Portable she bought me for Christmas.

You'd hardly know we're both advancing towards 50.

alot of chocolates come with a little map - it tells you what's inside. ;)

I came home to find the salmon still in the packaging, defrosting on the counter. nice. so I ask, umm, and you didn't make dinner, because??? his reply "i don't know how to cook salmon" - lies, all lies.

then he asks if I want my present, because "it might help me cook dinner". I told him if it's not Emeril in a friggen box, forget it.

after I cook dinner, he gives me a large box... (i'm thinkin, oooh maybe it is Emeril!) but alas, it's a radio for the kitchen. it's very nice, and I do like it, but his "it'll help me cook dinner" almost sent me over the edge.

LOL...that sounds like something I would do for my girlfriend...


I've been ***SUPER*** busy lately at work, so this year I had no time to pick-up any flowers for my gf :o but she's very understanding :D

We went for dinner at Day & Night Steak House and it was PACKED!!! Even though I made reservations for 19:30, we didn't get a table 'til 20:00!!! Afterwards, I dropped her off home because she has a midterm this Friday, and I have work the next day (today).

Unfortunately the box he got me didn't have the map -- but I did look for it. :D He asked me a few hours after he gave me the chocolate "did you take a bite out of these to see what was in there?" I told him, no I broke them open and he gave me this look because EVERY PIECE WAS BROKEN IN HALF!! :eek: He ate all the ones I didn't like -- now that's love!
