How I Feel About Valentine's Day This Year

I've kind of gotten over wanting to go out on a hot date on Valentine's Day. I would not be against it, but ever since reading the book "Waiter Rant" I just feel badly for the waiters and wish to be out on a more normal night. That and the babysitter problem.
So the past few years we have been doing a fun meal with the kids and getting out a tablecloth and some sparkling juice in goblets type of thing.
Now this year it falls on a Saturday night. Great if you don't have children yet and can just go out like usual. Not great if you just want to hang out with your friends, Valentine's or not.
I guess what I'm saying is I don't feel like cooking. Surely Chick Fil A would be a safe place to go as a family, right?

Last year Nate got me roses from Pro Flowers and they were guaranteed for Valentines's Day. There was a big snowstorm and he walked in the house empty handed and so sheepishly that day. I smiled pretty big when flowers showed up 3 days early this year. I thought he was overcompensating. Turns out if you wait too long to order they have to bring them early.


  1. I'm with you on the Valentines Day date :) Have fun, whatever you choose to do :)

  2. I'd offer to babysit so you could do something...alas...we didn't quite reach stateside as yet! Chick Fil A sounds fun and relaxing for the kiddos!

  3. We ate a Valentine dinner with all the kids and gave each other presents. :) Christina
