Every Valentine's Day our church has a valentine dinner for the married and engaged couples. We have a catered dinner, music, and a valentine message from our pastor. In addition some brave souls play an older marrieds version of the newlywed game called the marrieds game with our own show host! In addition there are pictures taken by some resident photographers for each couple.
A really nice evening for everyone involved. My hubby and I are looking forward to it as we have not been able to attend for a couple of years. Time to get a new picture too!
Valentines Day is very special to me, as it is 2 days before my husband's birthday. When we were dating, I surprised him by driving down (I was in school, six hours away) and whisked him off for a romantic night at a classy hotel. I don't know which surprised him more-- the fact that I had driven down, or the fact that his parents had been in on it, and knew that I planned on taking him to the romantic hotel! LOL!
Oh, I did stay in town for 2 more nights on that trip, but those were spent on his folks' couch, as my entire budget had been blown on Valentines Day! Wonderful memories!!!
We ate lunch together at the Chinese restaurant between our offices. Then I made a special dinner that we ate with the kids. After the kids went to bed, we watched a movie. Our official Valentine's date will be Thursday lunch with a Cheesecake Factory gift card.
My hubby got me a new watch for Valentine's. It is very pretty. He did good.
I made steak for dinner, and we also had spinach salad, and mini pitas with hummus. And then I made a cheesecake with soy cream cheese (it was very low sugar too).
We try to find an activity to do together instead of exchanging gifts, flowers, chocolate, etc. I bought a Groupon for a local winery wine tasting event with an incredible view of the Olympic Mountains.
