What is Everyone Doing For Valentine's Day

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Just wondering what your plans are for the upcoming Valentine's Day. A young couple in our church hosts a party at their home for the church members, adults only. They prepare a formal sit down dinner and serve it in their huge dining room. She and her husband are maitre' d and waitress for the occasion. They usually have a choice of the main dish. Then they have salad, bread, and a choice of wonderful desserts. This lady prepares all the food herself. Last year, she did allow me to bake pies for dessert, but she said no this year. She wants to prepare it all herself. She would not flinch if you told her today that she had to feed 75 people tomorrow. She can throw food on the table like nobody else I have ever seen. Anyway, the Valentine Party is always real special. She plans games with prizes and guests always leave with party favors to take home. Her house is decorated with the Valentine theme, candles, lights, hearts, etc. Each couple gets their pictures taken. Later everyone gets their picture already framed. A good time is had by all.

Honestly I haven't a clue yet.

This boy Zack I've been crushing on ever since the beginning of the new semester..Him and I have been talking a lot lately and he actually invited me to go with him to this thing called Battle Of the Bands tonight but because I'm grounded I wasn't able to go

Sooo I'm HOPING him and I will do something for Valentine's Day.
One thing is for sure..I'll be eating a lot of chocolate!!!

That woman sounds like a regular old Martha Stewart!..how nice of her and her husband to do something like that!!. This year I won't be doing much..I'm still here with my family and Jeff is still up north so this will be our first Valentine's Day without eachother...no matter..I'm sure we'll spend most of the night on the phone together!

Well since I don't have a boyfriend I offered to sub a bunch of group exercise classes for a couple of girls, so I'll be teaching 4 strengthening classes on Valentine's Day. One of my guy friends was talking about inviting all of his single friends over that night, so hopefully I'll do that as well. We'll see! It's my first valentine's Day without someone in 7 years!!!

You won't be without someone Katherine, at the very least in the sense of company. The single guys will be all over you!

We are going to go out to eat and go to the movies. We don't get to go on dates very often because we don't have a lot of money.

We've never been big valentine's day people. Since its a Tuesday and I have class at night, we probably won't do anything, maybe go to brunch that day since neither of us work tuesdays daytime...
Of course, if he bought me jewelry I wouldn't refuse it! But the last thing I need is more jewelry!

Not a thing, and I'm attached. I'm just not into V-Day. I WILL be volunteering on a production of Vagina Monolouges the following weekend, for a different kind of V-Day, though
post #12 of 25
Alone probably.

Being single, I don't have any big plans for the day. Anyone want to be my date?

I jump at the chance to celebrate whatever the occasion may be! My little Valentines, Sierra and Serenity, will be having a special Valentine's dinner!

I don't have anything to do, but don't mind. There's always next year.

Outdoor jazz concert at the Deering Estate in Palmetto Bay, about a mile away from our home. It is located right on Biscayne Bay with dozens of 40 ft tall Royal Palms leading down to the Bay. It is an amazing setting to listen to great jazz, especially if there is a full moon rising over the Bay. I love winter!

It's my first single Valentines day alone in a few years too.

Going to go to a restaurant with some friends and laugh at the couples taking it all so seriously!

If my kitchens been re-fitted in time, might even thow a party!

No date for me so I, too, will be eating chocolate and daydreaming...

I tried to post a reply yesterday but it just disappeared and then I couldn't access the site.

Trying again...we will go out to dinner, and I have a small gift for dh, we decided on nothing large for him this year as we just bought him a new chip and motherboard for his 'puter. I know he bought me a gift, no clue except he says it will make me cry..hmm....

We also celebrate the day after Valentine's day as that is the day we became engaged (back in 1995).

I am hopeful for a bit of chocolate, and do usually get flowers, which I admit to adoring. I love having fresh flowers in the house, but rarely budget buying them, and somehow my gardens never produce enough for me to have bouquets...I need to rethink the amount I plant of cutting flowers.

Oh Ryan you're too sweet!! I'm sure anyone who comes after me that day won't be nearly as handsome or funny as you though.

DH and I are going out to dinner. We got engaged 3 years ago on Valentine's Day and have gone to the same restaurant that he proposed at each year. We're moving out of town next month so this is the last time we'll have a chance to go there.

With any luck, I'll be in my new place, by then and will probably still be unpacking.
post #24 of 25
Not sure what we'll be doing - Probably not much of anything!

I'm still wondering what to get him for a gift .... I'm definately stuck! (Any suggestions!?)

I'm sure I'll end up making a nice dinner and we'll watch a movie or something - maybe we'll even go out - who knows - its always last minute around here!

We will be on our cruise! We should be in Key West that day. Deffinatley the most romantic valentine's day we've ever had together. Usually we just have a nice dinner at home and exchange gifts. We're skipping gifts this year since we'll be on the cruise. That is pleanty present enough!
