Happy Aloha Friday!
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!
It’s the final Friday before Valentine’s Day. Last year I wrote a post “Valentine Schmalentine” for the Spin Cycle (oh how I miss the Spin Cycle!) on my views of the Hallmark Holiday known as Valentine’s Day. Since I’m a romantic at heart, I love Valentine’s Day. I’ve had to learn to compromise, however, since the hubby’s not really romantic and is not one to make a big deal out of holidays. Except birthdays. He says that’s the one day that needs to be the most special, since it’s the most special day. Which means I need to step up my game for his birthday in April.
Princess Nagger has inherited the romantic gene from me – she loves Valentine’s Day, had a great time writing out dinosaur Valentine’s Day cards for her classmates and teachers, and can’t wait until she gets her pile’o’Valentine’s on Monday. Over the years hubby has learned to compromise and embrace his romantic side and ‘give in’, as it were, with us two romantic girls. We still don’t make it a big deal – usually I’ll cook a special dinner, or we’ll order from our favorite restaurant for hubby to pick up and we eat in, and we do exchange gifts and cards to commemorate the day.
Since Valentine’s Day is on Monday this year, we haven’t decided if we’re going to do our special dinner over the weekend, or on Monday – we’re leaving that decision to the Princess Nagger, since making a big deal out of it is more important to her, and she’s most important to us.
My question for you this week is:
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
Do make a big deal and go all out? Go out to dinner or have dinner at home?
Have a great weekend!
