Happy Valentine’s Day

How are you spending this Valentine’s Day?

We’ll be ordering take-out from my favorite restaurant – Big City Diner – and having dinner at home. It’s just so much easier than packing everyone up and braving the crowds. This way we can have a relaxing celebration at home complete with heart-shaped plates, candlelight, and the sound of screaming kids. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful & safe Valentine’s Day. Aloha!

    A happy Valentine’s day to you and your family!

    Last year, our girls were at their church club on Valentine’s Day so my husband and I spent a romantic but short evening actually dancing to Tony Bennett! Wonderful! But this year the girls will be with us on our actual day and we’ll probably have lasagna and exchange little cards and things as a family. That can be fun, too!

    (Love the Hawaiian Valentine photo!)

    We both grew up without a Valentine tradition, so our whole celebration took place this morning wishing each other a happy day :)
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and a lovely evening!

    Happy Valentine’s Day, GF.

    Ordering take-out sounds great! I’ll be cooking, and I’m totally okay with that. I did receive a “Thank you for love me like you do” card from the hubs this morning. Brought tears to my eyes.

    But other than that? It’s life as usual. :)

    Good Morning! Mr Uncommon and I are having a normal morning (except I got to sleep in a bit). I’ll take the children to school. I’ll pack them a gift in the lunch of a beating flashing heart and a box of chocolates. He is working a morning and taking off at 11:a.m. to come and get me. I’ll doll up and make a card for him after the kids are off. He is going to take me my favorite lunch at Pai Wai (fresh stir fry). Then we shall have an afternoon alone. I Made cupcakes for the kids and the will have us rested for the evening…perhaps a game night or movie night together.

    We’ll be staying in ordering Chinese Food. I just wrote a similar post about how I hate wasting money on over priced restaurants. Enjoy the day!

    I love the heart in the sand! Thanks for visiting my Amazon Garden!

    It sounds like you have great plans for today. I gave the kids their small Valentine gifts (candy for dd and some candy, a book and headphones for ds – his candy was less expensive). I have some candy and a karaoke CD for dh when he gets home tonight from Illinois and I made a chocolate fudge cake with peanut butter ganache that I found over at Scribbit’s blog.

    This afternoon the kids and I are going to a homeschool Valentine’s party that I am hosting at my church. We will have games, crafts, snacks and fun!

    A Very Happy Valentines to you and your family!

    My DH’s birthday is on the 12th, but DD had gymnastics (she is supposed to have it again tonight) so we went out to a nice dinner last night. We’re signed up for the mailing list for this place, so we got a free dinner and desert.

    Today it is snowing! So gym will probably get cancled unless it quits soon. But I really don’t want to be out in this stuff with my cranky car. I kinda need a trip to the grocery store and I don’t want to do it. I need to check the weather to see when it’s supposed to let up.

    Since we don’t really need any more sweets here, we just got cards for each other and I wrote a special message to them. DD sent me a great ecard with a purple bunny in it. She’s so sweet!

    Happy Happy!

    We grabbed a quick bite to eat out last night and are staying in tonight. We bought some new Wii games for the family for our valentine’s presents to each other and we will probably play the Wii all night – LOL!

    sorry to say it looks as if the kids will be fending for themselves tonight, Hubby has a game to reff and I’ll be at the hospital tonight visiting my sister, I have that interview at 2:30 so I’m thinking since I’m in Seattle I should take my sister a box of chocolates and a balloon or something?
    I did buy a couple of bags of Chocolates for the kids tho, that was as far as I got.

    Sounds like a great evening! Not sure if we are doing anything at this point. The girls have dance today from 5:45 – 8, so kind of puts a damper on any evening plans of going out to eat or something. Enjoy your day!

    Happy Valentines! Enjoy your day.

    We already had a special breakfast (put together with a little leftover inspiration – come see my blog) and will not be having our traditional Valentines family dinner. The girls were invited on a playdate so my wonderful hubby and I actually have the night alone for the first solo Valentines in 10 years! I probably won’t be blogging about tonight. Whoo – hoo!

    It’s just another day for us. My hubbie said “every day is V-day!” I think it’s just so commercialized now.
