Valentine’s Day has come and gone.. you like how I totally ignored it on my blog..

It’s not that I’m a “hater.”

I just don’t take that holiday too seriously.

I’ve ignored this holiday for several years.  In fact, I zoom by it completely on my blog in 2012 and 2010.  The only reasons I made a big deal about it in 2011 and 2009 were because they were “firsts” for Hubby and I.

In 2009, it was our first Valentines Day. 

In 2011, it was our first Valentines Day as a married couple.

I guess we should have celebrated it because it was our first Valentines Day as a family, but who has time for that when you’re dealing with a five month old!

This year, it wasn’t spectacular.  M had a cold and I didn’t want to take her out in the cold air..

First Christmas, now Valentines Day.. I’m thinking she may be allergic to holidays!

I think that as M gets older, I would like to see Hubby do something special for her.  I remember my dad buying my mom and I chocolates for Valentines Day, and I’d like to see Hubby do something like that for M. 

It’s a memory from my childhood that I cherish, and I’d love for M to have the same.

What sort of things did you do for your children on Valentines Day?


I’m not really one who celebrates this day.. but.. this year is a special year.. cuz it’s our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple.. and I’m the type of person that likes to celebrate firsts and lasts.. well.. in a way.. this is both.. but I can’t really elaborate on why just yet.. just know that it is kinda both..

Anyway.. the hubs had to work late today.. so we kind of made it a weekend thing..

Friday night we tried to go out to eat.. but I was really car sick after the drive out to the restaurant.. that it really wasn’t too fun in the end..

Saturday.. we spent all day with my besties and their families.. good eats.. good laughs.. good times..

Sunday night.. hubs cooked dinner.. some really yummy steaks.. and homemade mashed potatoes.. steamed veggies.. and sauteed mushrooms and onions..

I’m a pretty spoiled wife.. I loved every bite!

Today.. I had a cute Valentines Day dinner date with my parents.. it’s fun seeing them since I don’t see them as often since I moved out.. we ate “all-you-can-eat” Korean BBQ and my parents totally ate all they could… I couldn’t eat much since my tummy fills up really fast.. but it was very yummy and I’m glad they enjoyed themselves..

I used to be one of those completely bitter people that was very anti-Valentines day.. and in a way.. I still kind of am.. I’m just not really bitter about it.. I figure.. why waste ONE day on being super loving.. the way you treat your loved one on Valentine’s Day should be the way you treat your loved one everyday.. and that’s always been my philosophy..

In a nutshell.. I had a fun Valentine’s Weekend.. spent it with close friends and family… they way its always supposed to be!
