Valentines’ Day With Your Sweetie

My husband took me out on an amazing date a couple weeks ago and I consider that our date for Valentine’s Day. With our busy schedules, it’s hard to plan things so it worked out well that we did it earlier.

Nate surprised me on a Friday afternoon by coming home early with flowers. See how pretty are? My camera did not do them justice!

Then he announced that some friends of ours were coming to watch the kids so we could go out and we wouldn’t even have to pay the babysitters! He worked out all the details, even arranging for pizza to be delivered so I wouldn’t have to think about feeding anyone.

I was so amazed! Not that Nate isn’t sweet, but just that he actually planned it and pulled it off! Normally I am the one to figure it all out – and you know how much work that can be!

We went to dinner at a nice seafood restaurant where we had shrimp and lobster (it was delicious!) We’re fortunate that we live near the seacoast and can get lobster for reasonable prices. Still it’s definitely a “special occasion” kind of thing! Then we went to the movies and saw “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.” It was a very good movie. Parts of it were a little corny but for the most part, it was good action and it was refreshing to not have lots of bad language or sex scenes. Finally after stopping at Walmart (my request; I wanted to take advantage of kid-free-time and grab a few things,) we went to another wonderful local restaurant for some appetizers and drinks.

It was an amazing evening and I was reminded of how blessed I am to have such a caring, loving husband. So that was my special treat.

What’s your Valentine’s Day plans with your sweetie?

  1. How sweet! I love the flowers too. We are going out tonight. I can’t wait:)

  2. My hubby has to work a 12 hour shift and won’t get home until 8 p.m. AND our kids are out of school for a snow-day today. LOL Happy V-day to us!

    • Lol, sounds fun! I have the kids all day to myself too and I won’t see my hubby at all either; he has class after work tonight and won’t get home until at least 10 pm. I understand the feeling! ((HUGS))

  3. Oh that is sounds so much fun! See, it rarely happens but it means so much to me when the husband doesn’t just Plan the date night but when he also secures the baby sitter and figures out the meal too! Most of the time if he plans the date, I’m left to figure out the child care, and meal for the kids, etc…so it’s still a ton of work and stress on my part and he can’t understand why I’m unable to relax on the date until it’s almost over. lol.

    How completely sweet of your husband! that sounds amazing!

    Today, I’m hoping I get SOME time with my husband; as he’s in college again…and his major is ridiculously out of control with 8 hrs of homework a night, and he still doesn’t finish. So I’m hoping I can steal him away for at least 30 minutes to give him his gift.

    • I hope you get some time with him too! I won’t see my hubby at all today because he has night classes too and won’t be home until very late. So I can relate. ((HUGS))

  4. Your husband did a great job planning your date! He’s a keeper!
