V-day plan FAIL :(

So BF and I have a tradition of going for a couple's massage for Valentine's day every year, but we go to like a super nice spa. This year since V-day is in the middle of the week, we decided to celebrate on the weekend. I just called all the nice spas in my city and none of them have any appointments available on either the Saturday or Sunday before or after Valentine's day Frown While it's not going to ruin our celebration, we'll probably find something else to do, I'm just kind of bummed that our usual plan won't work out this year. Guess I should have booked earlier.

Do you ladies have any Valentine's day traditions?

    That's a bummer :(

    BF and I fail at celebrating Valentine's Day. I can't even remember what we did last year. The year before that BF and I hung out at his apartment with his brother and the year before that we watched a Simpsons marathon :) We've never all that into Valentine's Day.

    To be honest, I don't remember if BF and I even said "Happy Valentine's Day" last year... fail, haha!

    The only V-Day tradition FI and I have is me trying (and failing) not to be disappointed when FI doesn't make it into anything special.  Haha.

    I don't like V-day so we never do anything.  I think it is a sort of stupid holiday to be honest.....

    Glad I am not the only one.  Reminds me too much of when I was single. 
    OP- Couldn't you do a message on a friday evening?

    FI sends me red carnations and we get a heart-shaped pizza from the Italian place by us. Very low key :)

    Bummer :(

    Our dating anniversay is the 15th, so we don't really do anything for Valentine's Day. We probably will after we're married and start celebrating in May instead.

    Our tradition is that we trade off who makes the plans.  I don't believe that it should always be up to the man and actually love romancing DH.  Plus our birthdays fall on either side of Valentine's Day, so we put more effort in celebrating each of those separately.  I made it very clear early on that my birthday was NOT to be combined with Valentine's Day.  DH didn't understand seeing as how all of his previous girlfriends made an effort to celebrate both his birthday AND Valentine's Day.  I explained that most of my previous boyfriends saw it as a 2 for 1 deal.  Haha. 

    This year is my year.  I am making reservations at a nice restaurant.  There will be NO sexy time because I will be full-term and I am hoping that Nubbins stays put until his due date.  LOL.

    I don't care about V-day and have never cared about V-day. BF told me he was the same way. The first year we exchanged small gifts and were real casual about it. I dont' think we even went out for dinner. Last year we celebrated a few nights before since we were both gonna be busy on Vday.

    Then Vday came around, and I figured since we already celebrated that we wouldn't do anything else... so after my class ended (LATE class) I went straight home to go to bed. BF ended up getting really upset that I didn't stop by his place (but he didn't ask either.) and we ended up getting in an argument over it. So now I know even though he SAYS he doesn't care about Vday, he really does care about it, probably a lot more than I do.

    No plans yet this year, although I had a boudoir session so I should have the photos to give to him, but I'll probably be on the rag at the time =\

    We never do anything except eat some chocolate really.  My birthday is at the end of this month so by that point its silly to spend money on gifts or go out to dinner.  Its always too busy everywhere anyway.

    We usually go out to dinner at Fridays and watch tv. Like any other day, but I get a gift and a card lol. We both have low expectations, so neither of us gets disappointed.

    I like Valentine's Day.  We make a fabulous dinner together at home and enjoy it with a nice bottle of wine.

    That's a bummer, we don't have any v day traditions really.  It's not too big of a deal for us we usually go out to dinner together and celebrate with small gifts.

    I hate V-day because of the commercialization, so we usually don't do anything except go out to dinner.  And that's just because it's a good excuse to have a nice meal alone.
