Valentine's Plans...

I do LOVE Valentine's Day (especially all of the cute decorations, candies and cards)....but Josh and I are completely over spending lots of money on gifts and eating out. It's just too much. We still exchange cards with funny (and sweet) messages, but instead of wasting the time and money to go eat out somewhere nice, we've started staying in on Valentine's evening. We either cook or order in and usually end up watching a movie. To us, it's more fun and of course, cost effective. And I really hate when restaurants have pre-fixed menus for Valentine's...it just drives me crazy! Last year we had some of our good friends over on Valentine's...we all had so much fun that we've decided to do it again this year. We all pitch in on the cost for food and have a great time being together. I love decorating the table cute with Valentine's decor and dishes and I always make everyone go around the table and share what they love most about their spouse. They make fun of me for this....but I know deep down inside that they all love it. What are your plans for Valentine's day this year? Do you have any fun traditions?

I'll be sure to post pictures from our Valentine's dinner party on Monday!

XOXO,
Mindy

DITTO SORCE!!! In VA Beach they jack up the prices and everywhere has a set menu, frustrating. We would rather stay in and save money too. Especially with a sitter it gets pricey!
Our tradition is pretty cheesy, (Nate will prob kill me for posting this)we dance to our wedding song "Valentine" bc we started dating on Valentines freshman year!
(PS thanks for the blog tip, I had NO idea about that!)
