I've never been a big Valentine's Day type person.
Weird, because I'm super girly, mushy and all lovey-dovey. Did I mention that Mr. Beach Bum and I have been together since we were 17? It's not like I've ever been alone on the holiday and Mr. Beach Bum has always done great with gifts/flowers/getaways/etc.
I have no reason to dislike the holiday. I just don't "get it".
I don't want flowers delivered that cost over $100 (I'd rather spend that money on clothes for Trey, his new car seat, baby gates... I know.. I'm pathetic.), I can't have chocolate right now because I ate too many cupcakes while I was pregnant. I don't want to go to some fancy, expensive restaurant because really, the whole outfit/babysitter/reservations thing gives me so much stress.
I am excited to spend time with both of my guys this weekend! We got Trey a bunch of little gifts and I picked up some things for the hubs that he wanted too, nothing big - but things I know he has wanted and will use. I want to go to the fro-yo place for a snack and maybe the park for a walk.
And, thanks to my sweet hubs we are actually headed to PF Changs one night next week that isn't Valentine's Day and the MIL will be looking after Trey.
This will be the first date we have gone on besides a birthday party that we attended in November. I know, I know, but it's hard to leave Trey.
Life is so different now.
He's just my little Valentine. And I love him with all of my heart!
