I Love You Like A Blogger Roundup – 2/13

fistpumpTomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and the pressure is OFF. Well, at least I think it is…..Vonnie and I were talking to some friends about our monthly pot luck get together and we decided to do it on Valentine’s Day. Vonnie thought spending Vday with friends having a great time was a perfect alternative to the consumerism based holiday it’s become. But is a trap? Hmmmm, maybe I better have a backup plan.

What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?

  1. Enjoy the pot luck, we are celebrating all of the family’s February Birthday at my mom’s house.

  2. A potluck sounds like a terrific idea. We always celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family with an awesome Italian dinner (cheese lasagna this year) and some wonderful desserts. I don’t think it would hurt though if you found a great way to tell Vonnie how awesome she is, maybe with chocolate? πŸ˜‰

      We agreed to forego any kind of card or flowers and simply spend the day together making memories. We drove to the Minneapolis/St Paul area to go to a movie and lunch with family, then we came back and went to our potluck with friends. We had a great day, celebrating our relationship and our life together….well, together. πŸ˜‰ It’s exactly the kind of Valentine’s Day I love.

  3. A potluck with friends sounds like an awesome Vday. The bf had Wednesday and Thursday off this week so we went upstate for some skiing. I think that will be more than enough to celebrate (hopefully).

  4. We’re doing a frugal Valentine’s too. Dinner at church for free : )
    I think it’s OK to spend a bit on Feb. 14 though. A card and a rose for Vonnie?

      I thought about it….but we mutually agreed to fore go such things. I thought about doing it anyway, but I figured that may just make her feel bad that she didn’t do the same for me (she’s very much more of a giver than a receiver). We spent the day together, having a great time. Best Valentine’s day ever!

    I think a potluck sounds fantastic!! I’ve never heard of people doing that. I like how you’re thinking outside of the box.

    • Travis says:

      Turned out to be a great time….I think everyone at the gathering was relieved to have removed the “pressure” of Valentine’s day. πŸ˜‰

  6. We exchanged cards and spent the night in for Valentine’s Day. It has become too much of a production and prices are totally out of line for most things anymore. Dinner prices are inflated and the portion sizes are deflated! We decided to save our money and just have a quiet night in.

    • Travis says:

      I agree, Don…….showing someone you love them shouldn’t require buying something or spending money. Love is an emotion! Thanks for stopping by,Don!

    We discovered Valentine’s Day is actually a good day to dine out. The local specials were fantastic and we paid a fraction of the usual cost for a wonderful sushi dinner. It even included candy and a rose for the ladies.

    • Travis says:

      That’s cool that you found a great deal, Ansley. Personally, I like to avoid going out for dinner on actual Valentine’s Day as restaurants are super busy, and I’m not a big fan of crowds of people. πŸ™‚
