This year's Valentines Day is super special for Joe and I for a number of reasons.. One- it's our last V-Day without having children in the picture for the rest of our lives! Two- our sweet Josie girl is due 13 days after V-Day although at the way things are looking, she may be out by then! We wanted to make this Valentine's Day special and very "us" since for some reason, our V-Days always seem to get messed up which is so funny because normally, everything always goes so smoothly date night wise. But every year Feb. 14th rolls around, something crazy happens like we end up leaving the restaurant we went on one of our first dates to because they wouldn't let us order what we wanted to.
Maybe this year, we will end up celebrating in the hospital with our freshly born girl (I hope.. she is getting so big in there!). Or we may not even get to go anywhere in case she comes early. But if she decides to wait as long as she can, we decided to go ahead and plan what our favorite day would look like and then go for it (even if we have to celebrate two weeks early!)
My sweet husband got to choose the beginning of the day and then I chose to end. We decided to plan on celebrating on Saturday which is technically the day before Valentine's Day since Sunday we have church and I thought it would be fun to make a fun-filled day out of it. I asked him what his favorite day would look like (without traveling, since ya know, 9 months pregnant and all) and I added a few of my favorite things to it!
+Sleep in as much as we want + then have breakfast in bed!
+On the menu: Pancakes, Bacon, & Eggs and some delicious hot Coffee
+Hang out all morning in bed being super lazy and have our quiet time
then probably watch The Office
+Get ready & go downtown for lunch at our favorite restaurant ever
+Walk around downtown (one of our favorite things to do together)
+Go see a movie of Joe's choosing
+Go to a yummy local coffee shop and finish reading our birthing book and read a chapter of the book Joe is going through with some guys in the church about studying God's Word (it's SO good!) while enjoying a sweet treat and a delicious hot latte.
+Take silly photos together like always.
+After hanging out downtown, maybe check out Anthropology & J. Crew (since I doubt we will want to go once the baby is born and I have a coupon for my birthday!)
+Get ready and go have dinner at a fancy restaurant
+Go back home to make chocolate covered strawberries, a fun dessert we find on Tasty, & make something for Josie (either a letter or painting or something sweet! That was Joe's idea.. he is the most romantic and most considerate guy ever.. best husband award!)
This is my definition of a perfect day and I can't wait to spend it with the one I love most on this earth! Now if only we can get in this fun day before Josie arrives!
What are your plans for Valentines Day if any? If you don't have any, what would your perfect day look like?
