Sort Of In The Middle

by Courtney on February 14, 2013

Good morning and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

I’m curious…how many of you are “in” to the actual Valentine’s Day holiday? Do you buy into the whole card, flowers, chocolates thing? Or are you on the “it’s just a stupid Hallmark holiday” side?

Me? I guess I’m sort of in the middle. Jay and I don’t usually do anything special on V-Day…no cards or anything like that, although we do tend to sometimes make a nice dinner in or something low-key (tonight we’re actually going to dinner and seeing a movie, but it’s more just because we wanted a date night before leaving for Mexico). But I also do really love love, and I think it’s sweet to see and hear some of the different romantic gestures. HOWEVER…in my opinion, those types of things should be done all year round, not just on one day of the year!

So anywho…let’s rewind to last night. You guys have GOT to check out this dinner.

IMG_9721

I knew I wanted a salad, (mostly because we have a whole container of mixed greens that needs to be eaten before we leave next week) so I used that and loaded it up with cucumbers, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, feta cheese, pickles, dried cranberries, and avocado. It was serious…seriously amazing, that is. ;)

IMG_9723

I knew I also wanted/needed some protein and nothing was really appealing to me to put ON the salad, so I cooked up a couple of scrambled eggs on the side and topped them with some mango salsa. My eyes were also, apparently, bigger than my belly because I decided I needed toast too, but I didn’t really wind up touching that.

IMG_9725

Had to save room for the good stuff at dinner…and the stuff to come after dinner….

IMG_9726

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing through the daily deals on Rue La La (affiliate link, yo) and happened to find one for Mrs. Prindable’s apples. If you’ve never had a Mrs. Prindable’s apple, then you may not fully understand why I immediately had to purchase them. My one grandma first introduced our family to them, and then my mom jumped on board and has gotten them for us a few times. So when I saw the deal, I couldn’t resist.

IMG_9730

Besides…I’m calling them a Valentine’s Day gift to ourselves. ;)

The package a got contained four of their petite caramel, dark chocolate covered apples; two also coated in milk and white chocolate, one coated in extra dark chocolate with chocolate chunks, and one with those little sno cap candies.

IMG_9731

So last night after dinner, Jay and I treated ourselves to the little V-Day gift early and each had one of the striped caramel apples.

IMG_9732

Ohhhhhhhh, lordy. My day was complete after that little piece of heaven right there. And I love how, no matter how thick of a caramel and chocolate layer is on there, I still don’t feel bad because technically I’m eating fruit. And fruit is good.

And I have no problem making that justification. ;)

Question for the Morning:

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Have you ever had a really awesome and/or awful Valentine’s Day experience?

I love Valentine’s Day, but I hate that it’s all commercialized. It’s a great excuse to do something sweet for the one you love, but I also don’t like that it makes single people feel ostracized. This year, my fiance and I had a special Valentine’s Date Night that included dinner in, but dessert out, and then yesterday morning I got up early and made him a special weekday breakfast (we usually just grab something as we run out the door) of heart shaped pancakes. We did get each other a card and a small gift, but usually we just do something nice for each other. I wanted to make this year a little more special than usual because it will be our only Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple. But, typically we just use it as an excuse to do nice things for each other — no extra expenditures required.

This started when I was really little, but in my family, we’ve always had a little “scavenger hunt” for presents. (Small things, like candy or a necklace/book/makeup) We also will have little desserts and such. Nothing huge, but still festive!

I feel the same way as you – I like the little gestures for Valentine’s but really think you shouldn’t need a special day for it … it should be like that year-round.

My fiance is military so he’s away for an exercise until the end of the month. We celebrated Valentine’s before he went away so tonight I volunteered to baby for my friends that have a new baby. I’m sure they’ll appreciate some adult time together!! Happy Valentine’s Day :)

Happy Valentine’s Day, Courtney! I don’t go all out for Valentine’s day, but I definitely don’t just pass it off as a stupid Hallmark holiday either – any day to get a little more excited over is a good one in my books. But I definitely don’t think that chocolate, flowers, surprises, and special dates should be limited to Feb 14th… that kind of thing should go on all year :)

I have never heard of those apples but now must have them.

A simple love note or breakfast in bed is more than enough!

Nothing crazy–but I love that it’s a fun day to celebrate even MORE so. I think it’s sad when people are against it just because it’s a ‘holiday’. It doesn’t mean don’t celebrate love other days in the year, it just means adding another day of love to enjoy! <3

I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, mostly because a few years back, I got so fed up with my friends lamenting how if their boyfriends didn’t do something spectacular, they were going to dump them.
I believe that Valentine’s Day is more than just romantic love. It’s to show love to everyone you care about. And it shouldn’t be a requirement. It should be because you want to.
People get freaked out when I say I don’t celebrate (which isn’t entirely true. I did get my parents and sister cards), and think that I’m completely anti-love and cynical. I’m not, I just believe that this one day shouldn’t make or break an otherwise good, functional relationship.

I do celebrate Valentine’s Day! However, I told Nick the other night that I think it’s more about the things you do the rest of the year than just today. If you’re in a relationship where you only celebrate it and appreciate each other on one day of the year, then you’re most likely not in a great one.

I am the same as you, kind of in the middle. I’ve never been desperately happy abotu the holiday. Now that I’m married, it’s kind of whatever. My husband gets me flowers and sweet gifts randomly, so I’m not dying for something on vday.

I do get into the chocolate/hearts/red/pink part of it just because it’s girly and cute. I might be wearing a red sweater, heart socks, have red/heart nails, and heart jewlery on… But I’m spending the day alone so I just wanted to have fun and be a girl :)

Given that I’m a single lady (…and always have been a single lady on Valentine’s Day), I don’t really get into the holiday at all, but I did once have a FANTASTIC Valentine’s Day in college. Several people that I worked with at the student newspaper and I were on our way back from a conference, and we had some of the most phenomenal discussions I’ve ever been a part of on the way back to our school. It was absolutely incredible (also, there was an abundance of candy in the car, which definitely helped haha).

I used to be way more ‘into’ Valentine’s Day before we had kids. We do exchange cards and small gifts – more thoughtful items versus presents of substance. One year I bought him a dancing hamster that played ‘our’ song and now my daughters love it :) I had apples like those for my bridal shower favors. They (and my maid-of-honor!) were AWESOME!

Love Mrs. Prindables! As for the whole V-day thing. I’m not a fan. Restaurants are crowded which makes going out to dinner a nightmare. Even my local pizza place gets crazy. Sorry, but there is nothing romantic about getting take out pizza on Valentine’s Day. My grandmother’s birthday is Valentine’s Day and since she lives in another state we would always get take out if we were visiting b/c no one wanted to go out and eat since you could never get a reservation. Anyone with a Valentine’s day birthday you have my sympathies.

I’m not a big crazy person about Valentine’s Day because yes, I agree with you, it shouldn’t be the only day you and your loved one(s) do sweet things for each other. This is the 3rd Valentine’s Day I’ve spent with my fiancé and the past 2 years have been pretty low key (small gifts and dinner), but this year, I took the day off so really went all out. It started off with me waking up to flowers. And then I started my gifts to him by surprising him at school (he’s a high school teacher) with cookies and cupcakes for his class. He was extremely happy and I could tell that it truly made his day! Then when he got home this afternoon, I had a cheese plate set up with some Prosecco and made a nice dinner of Wild Salmon with an avocado and grapefruit relish (Pinterest find) and kale salads. I also made some flourless peanut butter cookies, and made 3 to say “I <3 U." It's really been a wonderful day! :)

I only had a boyfriend one valentines of all my years. We had dated a year and he didn’t get me a thing. I can remember crying my eyes out. Not because I wanted something expensive, but because it didn’t even cross his mind. I would have taken a card. I bought him things and he said thanks and thats it. needless to say we are not together lol

I agree that love should still be expressed year-round!!! And omgssshhh if people only knew the true meaning behind V-day!!! I love it because it has to do with a Catholic martyr who married Christians who really loved each other and at his time that was crime! So when he kept his commitment to that, he got killed. I know that sounds sad but it’s sooo deep in my opinion. :) And I’ve been loving huge salads too! I get filled after them.

With 2 kids, we don’t really go out on Valentine’s Day. Sometimes, hubby will bring me home some flowers, but I’m not much of a cut flower person. I prefer live plants. Most of the time, we buy each other a small gift. This year, I got a really cute coffee mug and a shirt that says “I <3 my geek" with an actual heart. It may not be super romantic to some, but it's perfect for us. I got him a Game of Thrones coffee mug and a Jayne Cobb hat (from the show Firefly).

I did have a bad V-day a few years ago. I had met this guy at a party and, we were both single near V-day. He asked me to dinner and I said yes, thinking this was a friends thing. Apparently he didn't feel the same way. I gently turned him down, not interested in him like that. He started stalking me, I'd wake up in the morning and he'd be parked outside my window, just waiting for me to leave the house. It was really creepy. Eventually I threatened to call the cops and he left me alone after that. That didn't really happen ON V-day, but because of it, so I'm counting it, lol.
