Did you have fun last week?
This week is Valentine's Day. Despite my enthusiasm for this challenge, I actually have kind of ho hum feelings about this day. While I think it's a great idea to focus some passion on the one you love, I also feel it's a financial racket designed to take my hard earned money.
That being said, here's my plan for Valentine's Day:
I'm making pizza with pepperoni cut into hearts along with a strawberry spinach salad that is his absolute favorite. After dinner, we'll play a game or two of Uno with the boys then send them off to bed early at 7:30. I have a movie from Netflix that he's wanted to see - the new Bourne movie - and we'll settle in for that. When the movie is over, he'll find a heart shape across the bed made out of his favorite, Reese's cups. Needless to say, you don't need to know the plan after that!
I know that everything you see right now is telling you that unless he is spending a fortune on roses and diamonds and dinner he's a loser, but come on. You're smarter than that. I'd rather have a whole year of thoughtfulness and passion than one big day in February.
If you haven't planned your night yet, go do it. And most importantly, have fun!
