Trying anything new this month? On a break

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? Not yet - we have discussed ordering food to go and eating at our house with a special bottle of wine we have been saving from the vineyard where we got engaged

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? I think it was 2009 probably - I was still living in Austin and hit bad traffic and didn't make it back in time for our original dinner date plans. So we went out to find an open restaurant but EVERYTHING was closed. We ended up going to Kroger and buying snacks, chocolate, and a bottle of wine and just played pool all night at his house. I don't remember the details but I remember laughing all night and having an amazing time not really doing anything

Trying anything new this month? IVF cycle, so everything is new!

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? We will likely go out to dinner the Saturday after Valentine's Day, but we probably won't celebrate on Valentine's Day. Maybe we'll give cards....

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? My favorite Valentine's Day was in 2000, our first Valentine's Day together. DH (well boyfriend at the time) gave me a heart shaped ruby and diamond necklace (expensive since we were both in college then) and then took me out to one of the most romantic restaurants at PSU. We had a lovely Italian dinner and then he hired a quartet to sing me "Earth Angel" at the restaurant. They also gave me a lovely bouquet of roses. I was totally embarrassed, but it was lovely! I've been his "angel" ever since!

Nope. I had totally forgotten about it.

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration?

Sheesh, I don't know. I don't remember us ever doing anything really fancy for it. Maybe this one will be the best yet!

Trying anything new this month? still just TTC!

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? We will probably just stay home, make dinner, and watch movies. I bought some special lingerie for the occasion.

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? I can't really think of one. This will be our first Valentine's Day as a married couple, though. If we conceived around Valentine's Day, that would make for the best Valentine's Day ever!!

Trying anything new this month? First RE appointment on the 20th (assuming no BFP next week)

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? DH and I will be in Florida visiting my favorite aunt and uncle. Lots of beach and pina coladas if I'm not preggo.

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? First Valentines Day when I was dating DH. He totally blew it - showed up late, didn't bring the flowers he promised me, or a card (the only thing I asked for). I was so bummed. A few days later, he surprised me by showing up in a limo, taking me to cruise around the city, a dinner at the best vegetarian restaurant in town, followed by bowling in our fancy duds!

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? We have reservations at White Castle and we're going to see Die Hard, yes I am the best wife ever lol

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? Last year, my mom found out on valentines day of 2006 that she had breast cancer, after a year of surgeries and treatments she was considered in remission, last year after 5 years in remission they considered her cancer free! One of the best days of my life.

Yes it is, lol on valentines day though they decorate and have waiters and everything. The hubs and I are dressing up as though we were going to a five star restaurant though. I can't wait I wanted to go last year but all the reservations were booked up like 2 weeks before valentines day.

Trying anything new this month? Not really.

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? Nope, nothing really at all except am going to find somewhere to get heart shaped pizza hopefully.

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? Eh, none really. It's kind of just another day for me. I liked in grade school when everyone made a paper mail box, and everyone in the class would give a valentine to everyone else, and of course tons of candy made it awesome.

Trying anything new this month? Tomorrow is my first OB appointment to see about starting TTC MA. Wee. Not excited, but sort of hopeful it gets us moving in the right direction.

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? Not yet, but last year we got a cupcake to split from the local cupcake bakery and watched a movie together.

What was your favorite Valentine's Day celebration? The year we were engaged, I was sick, but he got takeout from my favorite restaurant.
