I know lots of people think Valentine's Day is dumb, but I don't. I like the whole fancy dinner and exchanging gifts hoopla. The other day I was online looking for a restaurant for us to go to Valentine's Day and was feeling kind of discouraged because nothing was looking that great to me. I wanted to go somewhere new, but none of the restaurants jumped out at me. Chuk walked in the room and I asked if he even wanted to go out to dinner for Valentine's Day. Turns out, he wasn't that excited about going out either.
So we decided that this year we're not going to exchange gifts and we're going cook a fancy dinner together (and by "fancy dinner" I mean not what we have everyday, not necessarily something actually fancy like lobster and filet mignon) and then play a game or watch a movie. I'm really excited about the plan. It feels so right for where we are at this point in our life.
I've spent $2 on Valentine's Day this year. I got the card for free after seeing this deal. The heart shaped box of chocolates and the package of his favorite candy each cost a buck.
What, if anything, are you planning for Valentine's Day?
