Valentine's Day

Well, it's that time of year again. Valentine's Day.
Don't ask me why I really don't like this holiday. I don't know the answer to that.
When you think about it, a girl should love a holiday where she's showered with flowers, candy, jewelry and poems of love.

Not me.

I think it's a completely over-rated Hallmark holiday.

Don't get me wrong. We usually do the card thing - just because it's always nice to tell your spouse how much you love them. We even do the go out to dinner thing (on a different night) because, let's face it, any excuse I can get for not cooking is an occassion to celebrate.

Since we've had children, we do celebrate this "holiday" a little more just for them but we don't go over the top. Just candy, cards and a little something extra.

I do hope all of you who celebrate this St. Valentine's Day have a happy and memorable weekend. Don't eat too much chocolate.

I feel the very same and we celebrate in the same way too! Well put!!! I do like flowers and all that stuff...but I'd rather my husband put our money somewhere else!

We don't do much for Valentine's Day. Usually just cards and a box of candy. I am hoping my hubby will grill for us tomorrow if the weather stays a bit warmer.

Yes, it is over rated, although I like to use the heart stuff!!! ;P
Enjoy your chocolate and have a good weekend!

I know what you mean about going out to eat...I told my hubby it's just too crowded. We may order in chinese!!!!

I use it as an excuse to tell my boys how much I love them! Being teenagers and all, I get those hugs in when I can!

Im with ya! Love should be shared and showed everyday! Im not into flowers because I like to eat for the rest of the week,ha! We always do a little small thing and it works just perfect for us. Happy Valentines Day!

I completely agree.
But who doesn't love a little chocolate?
Or a lot of chocolate?
Hope you enjoy yours.
Happy Valentine's Day Duchess!
