what did you do for {heart} day?

picture credit {here}
"my ideal vday would be with the boy that i like...so middle school! but i've always had fun valentine's days with my friends. we cook fun meals together and write love notes. what could be better?"

"for valentine's day this year we're planning on museum-hopping in philly and then grabbing a pint at an irish pub that just opened up in my hometown. to say i cannot WAIT would be a vast understatement."

pizza & wine <3
"i love dates with my husband. we have a tandem bicycle and my favorite is our standing year round saturday date (rainy days excepted) where we head south along the coast and after about 15 miles or so stop for brunch and then head back home. so important to still date your spouse!"

"i think i'm going to make fondue for my valentine's day date this year : )"

melted chocolate...yum!
"i think my favourite would be a day date if you have somewhere nice to wander around. i live in saudi arabia as an expat and it's quite restrictive here, so when my hubs and i manage to get out of here, it's quite a treat to have a wander around somewhere new and just take our time, taking it all in."

"an ideal date for us is a nice dinner out, with tropical cocktails then a movie and some cuddles on the couch!"

homemade pizza
what did i do?

“valentine’s was spent in our pjs, lounging on the couch with olive, watching jeopardy & the bachelor.  for our meal, craig and i enjoyed homemade (heart-shaped) pizza & red wine and for dessert, hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries…and chocolate covered oreos.”
