This is one of my Favorite times of the Year~...~*Valentines Day~*
My house is all hearts and candles, and lights~I Love it<3
I was Married on this day, and every year we try and do something really special during the week of valentines~<3
Between the two of us I am defiantly the more...romantic one.
In the past I have, Planned getaways, made scrapbooks filled with coupons, and gift certificates, cooked romantic dinners etc... A couple years ago, I created a "board game" from scratch, with questions, challenge cards, video clips, a night away, Pictures, activities, and so on...It was called :The Anniversary Game! and we have all of it on Video...OK...not ALL of it ;)
Well this year I am relinquishing control, and letting Clayton plan the weekend. I have no idea what we will be doing, but I am sure it will be great!
I wish I had a Wedding picture of the 2 of us to put on here, because we looked really young, cute, and skinny, and it would have been great for a laugh:)
However, we were very young and broke at the time and did not splurge on the professional photographer, Boo! If you are not yet Married ...heed these words!! SPLURGE ON THE PHOTOS!
OK that is all I will say....
In closing, here are a few ways you can crank up the romance, and bask in the holiday of LOVE~
#1. Decorate your house...you don't have to spend much money or any at all...most of my stuff is, left over red Christmas items and lights, paper crafts, candles, and whatever I don't have I live without, or buy at the dollar store:)
#2. Have a date night...even if all you do is have a teenager come over and watch your kids in the playroom , while you enjoy a meal, and a movie at home. You need to make this priority! You dated before you got married, Its a lot more fun after you are married!
#3.Don't use your Bedroom as a junk drawer...clear that clutter!...there is nothing romantic about, dirty clothes, left over mail, kids toys, cookie crumbs and fruit snacks on the carpet, or piles of stuff stuff everywhere. I am not an A student at this...we have kids and they are in and out of our room all day it seems, and with them comes the never ending trails of debris.... Clear it all out of there, light a few candles, and make the bed!
#4. Read together before you go to bed, or just talk. Sometimes its the only time you have to spend together that day. Be sure to connect by talking, reading, praying etc...before you sleep:)
#Sexting....I learned this at MOPS...I guess its like texting...but a little spicier...;)....you can fill in the blank here..........
Well I hope you all have a Fabulous Valentines Day~!
