What are your Valentine plans??

Recommended Posts

Can you believe Valentine's Day is right around the corner? 17 days away!!!!

I know you girls are full of fun & creative ideas!!! blush2.gif

 

I'll go first...

 

One of my best friends is going through a divorce right now. Yup, after 13 years and breast cancer her husband decided to file for divorce. confused.gif

Well she moved from San Antonio to Houston (where her family lives) and I've invited her to come down to San Antonio for Valentine's Day! cheer2.gif

 

I made reservations at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort -Wildflower Spa- for one of their Valentine Packages. It's going to be a girl's weekend this year. FI will be there with friends golfing. But my girlfriend & I will be experiencing a little pampering at their luxurious spa!! Chocolate massage at that!! =)

At the end of the day we will all have dinner & kinda go our diff ways after that??

 

So tell me, what are your Valentine plans this year?

Oh, that sounds nice! I could use a little pampering

 

I actually only found your thread cuz I searched for "valentine". I am at a loss this year as to what to do for Matt. I usually buy him something practical and something fun, each time i buy him something. Usually, the something "fun" has something to do with sex. I just feel that is getting old and I should try something different. But I have no idea what!

 

I've already done the "go away for a weekend", "go to a super nice restaurant", "buy sexy lingerie", etc. route. Got any ideashuh.gif

 

He's not really materialistic. Kinda the anti-materialistic. He thinks everything is a waste of money. Unless it has to do with his car, of course. Anyway, I am at a total loss. It's our first Valentine's married and I have no clue how to make it special!

Well, for Christmas my FMIL & FFIL bought us a weekend getaway to Banff (Alberta, Canada) to the Rimrock Resort in the Rocky Mountains... Babysitting included!! We love to just get away for a day or 2, it keeps things fresh :) We are probably going to indulge in a massage or something like that while we are there.

I wish I had something excited planned, but I actually have to go to the dentist of all places, I guess I'll see how I feel after and maybe we'll go to dinner or something...

My girlfriend is flying in from Jersey (actually my MOH) and we have no idea what we are going to do. I don't typically do a big valentine day thing with my DH. We decided this a few years ago when it was so difficult to get into a restaurant, hotel, etc. during Valentine day. So we will just do our romantic Valentine get away during the "slow" season.

We just stayed at the Rimrock after New Years! We had a blast - it's such a beautiful hotel and Banff is such a nice getaway. You must be excited!
I am flying out to visit my MOH on Valentine's Day and hopefully go shopping for her dress. It is her birthday on Feb 15 so I'm hoping to give her and her hubby a night off from baby (their daughter is 7 months) so hopefully they can go out for dinner and I can babysit.
My FI is a little bummed that I won't be home so I'm planning a surprise Valentine's Day complete with decorations (we are big decorators!) a few days before.

My FI and I have decided not to do anything huge. We are trying to save money and the day in itself kind of drives me crazy! So commercial. I might be the odd ball but I would rather get flowers or a small gift on a random day than on Valentine's day.

 

I think we are going to do a nice dinner at home. Maybe some crab legs and movie. Maybe home-made chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!

I have no idea. DH has to work until about 5 that day - but we are brand new newlyweds so we better be doing something!!! lol

Although, I'm kind of with Sylvia on this one - I hate the thought I trying to get a reservation at an overcrowded restaurant!! I would like a nice dinner cooked for me & just bring me some nice flowers...oh, & don't forget the card! If nothing else, there has to be a card (although DH still hasn't really learned that one!)

Ive boycotted Valentines Day since HS - and Ive been a couple most Valentines Days. I personally think its a stupid day - single or not. However, FI and I are going to some charity gala event with a bunch of our friends. Free dinner and wine - hello! How could I turn that down? Plus I get to get dressed up and wear my new heels. Yay me.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
