    Anyone getting anything special?

    I told my hubby, that all I wanted was for him to be nice to me.
    Not that he isn't normally nice to me, just you know .... like in the beginning nice.

    He has been an angel for the last few days! He has spoiled me rotten .... can I help with that?, can I get you anything?, are you warm enough? want me to rub your feet? These cupcakes are wonderful, this sandwich is delicious. dinner was the best!

    It's been really nice, (sometimes almost too much), but it sure beats arguing!

    and the new machine sitting on the new sewing table that was my closet.
    We usually don't do anything fancy on V-day because we celebrate two anniversaries in March.

    Except when DH was overseas, in which case I got flowers sent by FTD thru the local florist, I always have to wait til the 15th which is payday to get anything, which usually turns out to be whatever Valentine candy is on clearance. It's gotten to be sort of a family joke to see which box it will be this year. For awhile I kept the boxes and had 3 years in a row that it was the same one!

    My DH brought me home two big bouquets of flowers on Thursday evening for Valentine's day - one was a mix of cut flowers and the other was a dozen long stem red roses. He likes to have the roses arranged with the mixed flowers. Last year he had 3 dozens long stem red roses sent to me because he was working on the east coast for 5 weeks. I like having him home this year better.

    Thanks,

    Maggie, that sounds like an awesome gift.

    Mine's away on post. I got my presents Thursday via USPS. I'd rather he not spend money when he's not earning combat pay... Still, I'm happy to get it.

    A food chopper I have been wanting for ages. I can't chew very well and this relieves a lot of pain.

    A South Park gift set (mainly for the MANBEARPIG poster for my studio and the Towelie because I wear glasses).

    30+ small Valentine's Day cards with different messages in them.

    He was going to get my dream camera but a new version comes out in March. Hopefully, I talked him out of it but the thought of it is lovely!

    I got him the same chocolate I got him during his last warm up for deployment and a really ugly pair of pants as a joke.

    Anyone else buy for their sweetie?

    I am happy for all you and YOUR Valentines Day ...not all of us as fortunate...I guess I will enjoy spoiling myself as I do every year...(Oh that Dark Chocolate is the GREATEST)..for people divorced as I am speaking for myself..this day can be as lonely as holidays etc. I do reach out to others I know are alone to make myself feel good but some people can not do this....cheer someone else up less fortunate..send a card, take an elderly person a rose, take a person to lunch...share Valentines Day with someone who does not have another peron to share it with!

    When I started dating hubby many years ago he said "I dont do valentines day, it is a Hallmark Holiday", so 29 years later that is the running joke in our house. So we normally dont exchange gifts.

    Hubby is not much of a gift buyer so I never expect much more than a valentine card. But he is always nice to me so I don't complain. I think I will keep him and celebrate another anniversary with him (this year will be 45th). We will wait until then and celebrate.

    I'm married to Cupid. Everyday is Valentine's Day. If I want something, I buy it.

    I know that I am Blessed.

    We don't do desserts much any more but for his birthday and valentine's day I always make his favorite childhood cookies. He just louvers over my oven and when they are done he eats one, two, three...............right away with this look of such pure delight. Cause I know it is all play but I love it anyway! His default for me is to take me out for a nice meal, not carry out.

    I couldn't have said it better. DH & I don't 'celebrate' Valentine's Dad but we celebrate the other 364 days of the year. I am very blessed to have him & I have women standing in line waiting for him! We've been married 37 yrs now & this man is thoughtful EVERY day of the year, not just Valentine's Day. He opens doors for me, he works 50-55+ hours a week to put a roof over my head & for me to have the things I want WHEN I want them. All I have to do is say "I want" for the most part & I've got it. I'm not a high maintenance kinda gal & we don't put unreasonable expectations out there for each other. We are still 'lovey dovey' after all these years & people (the guys he works with) don't understand why we don't "Celebrate' Valentine's Day. Their wives would 'kill' them if they didn't send flowers & roll out the red carpet. So I just want to say it's Valentine's Day EVERY DAY in my house. I will love my sweety until I take my last breath & by then I am sure the line for him will be even longer!

    Some years flowers, some years nothing, and always a very sweet romantic card. Our anniv. is Feb.5, and he always makes that special. Actually, after 56 years of being together, he makes everyday special for me. He cooks, he cleans, he shops, he does laundry ( not all of everything, all the time, but when I need his help) Just the two of us together is special .

    We don't do much for Valentine's, maybe card and candy. After he bought me my HQ sweet 16 machine back in the fall, I would be pushing my luck to "suggest" anything right now.

    My hubby made coffee the way I like it- when he makes the way he likes it can't even taste the coffee, it is just like brown water. He is a good person, but since his stroke, he is a challenge to live with. It is good I have a lot of patience.
