Happy Valentine's Day!!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Probably nothing, since my 2 year anniversary with my lovely husband is the next day, the 15th.

Luna-Now I really want to know what chicken riggies are.

OMG! I love your wedding photos! Gorgeous! I wish i were doing something fun on Valentine's Day, but my husband and I already celebrated with our friends on Saturday at a wine/chocolate tasting! It was yummie! Thanks for this great giveaway!

Erica said...

For Valentine's Day I plan to hang out with my friends as we lament our singleness :P

I'll be helping out at school Vday parties for my kids, and then fixing a nice dinner for them and the hubby tomorrow night. :)

Happy Anniversary!


Just Your Typical Book Blog said...

For Valentine's Day I will be going to work then going to the gym and then writing....yep, I'm single!


Booklady said...

First I'll be spending the day in an elementary school library teaching third graders research skills and talking to fifth graders about Tomie DePaola. I love books so spending the day in the library is not so bad, but I'll be topping off the evening with a romantic dinner out with my husband. I'm so happy he's not deployed this year.

Thanks for the giveaway.

For Valentines day my boyfriend has set up a scavenger hunt for me. All he has told me is that I'll get a text in the morning telling me where to start! AWW he's so sweet to me!


Sarah Lydia said...

Sandy Jay said...

I'll be relaxing with a good book.

This Valentines Day I will unfortunately be stuck going to a doctors appointment. Truthfully I'd rather just watch movies all day. ^_^

Well, my friends and I call Valentines Day forever alone day because none of us have boyfriends yet...and so it's just us. Haha :P

Mona said...

Valentine's Day is just like any other day for me. Hubby is not big on holidays/special occasions. He's not much of a gift person, neither giving nor receiving. He is more of a gesture person. He believes every day is special. He's right in theory, but sometimes it would be nice...


Katie said...

happy anniversary! my valentines is going to be spent with a special someone as well. thanks for the giveaway!


Brenda said...

For Valentines Day I'm doing what I do every day, I was in a car accident and broke my C-6 in my neck so had surgery to fix it. My husband of 12 years is unfortunately unemployed, but working on opening a new business, so will do his best to work on that while also, cooking, cleaning, changing our bedding, helping me with a shower, and doing all of the rest in his best to show me how much he loves me and cares for me in the best way a man can. To be there for you when you are at your worst and not by spending money but by actually being there and taking care of me and my world. I don't think I can ask for anything better for Valentines Day! Now that is Love!

Thanks for the giveaway, and happy anniversary! Not a fan of Valentine's Day, myself--I took the day off for a doctor's appt and then am treating myself to a pedicure. Bought some gifts for my daughter, that's about it--poor hubby gets nothing LOL


Bookworm1858 said...

As Valentine's Day is a Monday, I'll be doing my usual routine: nothing special. However I'm not a big fan of V-Day and I'm single so I don't really care. Hopefully I'll have some time to read.

Also Happy Anniversary!

Regina said...

First I have to work on Valentine's Day and then spending a quiet evening at home with Murph and the kiddlets. I know, not very romantic. lol


Lesley said...

for v-day my boyfriend and I are going out to eat and coming home to watch a movie. Nothing better than cuddling after a yummy romantic dinner! :)
Hope you and your hubby have a great v-day!

Ricki said...

I am going to the dentist and then working late on Valentine's Day :(


wildlower said...

For the first time in years I have no plans. I'll probably end up having dinner cooked for me, which is always a plus. Most likely spend the day cleaning house.

Congrats on your anniversary!!


Audrey said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I'm a follower via GFC as audreyclair.
Unfortunately, this Valentine's Day will be spent in class and at a sorority dinner, so nothing too exciting. Maybe next year?

Vivien said...

I will be going out to dinner with my husband. Then an enjoyable night in with new Victoria Secret :)

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I celebrated yesterday because he is working and taking grad classes until late this evening. It will be a quiet day for me today.

I'd love to be entered in the contest.

Virginia C said...

Thanks for a great giveaway! To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I plan to bake a pan of my best brownies, turn the pages of some very lovely romance reads, and think about love and all its embodiments and implications. Love makes the world go around! Happy Valentine's Day to all : )

m7c57 said...

Making a fantastic dinner for my Valentine when he gets home from work. Can you smell the aroma from the crock pot?? Love and romance is in the air!!

Carol N Wong said...

Happy Anniversary! Our anniversary is on February 11, our 17th. It is supposed to be good luck to get married before Chinese New Year which it was that year. We have already celebrated our anniversary with a big cake from the Chinese bakery. My husband made a big heart with beads on the living room walls. Today, we will be going out to nursery to look at flowers and trees and then do some window shopping.


missreneer said...

Happy Anniversary. Your Valentine's Day sounds like so much fun! I'm not exactly sure what I will be doing today. I am very pregnant and swollen, TEEHEE!!! Don't really feel like getting out, so maybe hubby and I will have to postpone. Thanks for the great giveaway and thanks for posting your wedding pictures, they are lovely.

You guys are adorable! For Valentine's Day, I'm probably having a nice dinner and chocolate for dessert with my handsome teenage son. He's about the only man in my life these days. :)

Lu said...

We aren't doing much for Valentine's Day. My other half and I don't really buy each other gifts, or have a date night or anything like that. I guess that is because I am of the belief that Valentine's is a completely commercial holiday, and that it shouldn't take giving a day a name and commercializing it to show someone you love them?? ( I'm a bummer, I know!)
However, that being said, my children and I will bake heart shaped cookies this afternoon.

Melissa said...

As far as I know we have nothing planned. This morning I was surprised with a necklace and chocolate covered strawberries. We will probably rent a movie.


Julie S said...

Lovely pictures. We also had a beach wedding :) I don't know if we're doing anything different tonight since I'm really not a fan of this calendar holiday. However, on Friday we will be celebrating 5 years since hubby proposed so we might go out to dinner or do something nice.

Great contest, please enter me :)

I will be making a nice meal for my family. We don't like to go out on Valentine's because everyone else does. I gave him a chocolate candy bar that had a certificate saying it was good for one massage. I may be giving it to him later.

Jessi E. (The Elliott Review) said...

We are just eating dinner together at a place we like after I am done at the gym. Not anything too romantic. I'm not the biggest fan of V-day, so it's not a big deal.

Thanks so much for this contest, and congrats on your anniversary!

For Valentine's day I first woke up and exchanged gifts with my fiance (he got me a necklace) and then I went to my dad's and spent the day with My dad and siblings there that I don't see very often. I got an ice cream cake from my dad and gave him a disney princess card as a joke! IT was a great day!

Happy Valentine's Day! This is a great contest!

I had a fairly low key Valentine's Day. I live three hours from my boyfriend so he came up to visit me for the weekend and left this morning. I spent the rest of the day hanging around and going to class! Exciting, I know.


Ashley said...

Great giveaway, and Happy Anniversary! I spent today hanging out with family, and it was nice. Nothing special though which I'm okay with.

This year we aren't doing anything to celebrate V-Day, but maybe next year will be more exciting. =)

Happy Anniversary! I'm a pretty low-key Valentine's Day person -- I just went to dinner with some friends. But there was chocolate-dipped fruit and marshmallows O_O

Valentine's Day isn't a big deal to us. I took my son to school and he had his party. While he was at school, the hubby and I went to the bank to fill out paperwork for a pre-approval on a home loan. In the afternoon we took the kids to the dentist. Very normal day.

Meredith said...

Hubby and I went out the Friday before V-day. He took me out to Olive Garden for lunch, and then we went shopping and bought him a new shirt and got the boys some candy for the holiday. We didn't make it to dessert, since we were so full on our main courses, so we're going back for dessert sometime this week.
