I convinced my husband that this year, we should really celebrate Valentine's Day instead of doing nothing like we do every other year! Here's my rationale - it's our 10 year anniversary later this year, and we actually can afford to celebrate this year, as opposed to our 5 year anniversary where dh had been laid off and I had just had a baby! Well, I explained the rationale to dh and he actually understood where I was coming from! And last night, he made a comment about how he would be able to "get me something" when we're out next weekend "celebrating". As you can imagine, this means gifts are to be had - I'm thinking pond legacy shoulder bag! So far, he's hooked on a new pair of Kenneth Cole shoes (thank God I sparked a shoe obsession in this man!), and the possibility of a PS3 (though if he gets that, it may mean no more anniversaries b/c I never see him again!). So, anyone else turning this "Hallmark" holiday into a real celebration? Yeah, I know it's cheesy (heck, in high school and college, I used to wear black on Valentine's Day in protest), but I'm actually very excited for next weekend!
