Valentines day and Photo books

Every year I scramble to get my hubby some gift on Valentines day..I will admit that I usually don't spend much time on it.  When we were first dating I found him some special chocolates from a wonderul place and ordered him a box because he is such a chocolate fan and HE LOVED them.  This year, I want to try to do something special and really show my appreciation for my hubby.  I don't know what though...so I need to get to thinking...  Do the rest of you celebrate Valentines with your sweetie?  Or is it just another holiday?

I just finished making my Christmas photo book at walgreens..I had a 40% off coupon so I made it for under $20.  I have made them every year for the last 3 years.  They are really cool to look at and make great coffee table books.  I wish I could get my act together and make a book every year for the YEAR but they are a lot of work for me and I don't get around to it.  I print out all my pictures but just slide them into an album.  I used to scrapbook but dang is that a butt load of work and money.  It does seem that every year the book gets bigger..I think because I know I am going to make it and I take a ton of photos..this year is the largest yet at 30 pages.  My first book..had only 11 pages.  Side note: My hubbys brother got divorced this year and started dating a new girl a couple weeks ago and brought her to Xmas dinner...I was a little put out as I thought it was too early to bring the girl to meet family and I hate putting her in the pictures if she is not going to be there next year because so far..every year..he seems to have a new girl..ughh.  I never brought home my boyfriends unless it was serious and we had been dating awhile...usually because my mom always got attached to them and made it difficult to break up with them --- lol!

Band Update: Loving the restriction.  This is great and my food has  been in check!  Exercise..still failing!

I do year books with Shutterfly and I love it! Though this year I have been lax and haven't finished 2012.

And I absolutely looooove Valentines Day!

we are not that big on Valentine's day...
Love the idea of the picture books for the year! I wish I had the time or the motivation to do that!

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. It's all about love and choclate...what could be better??? I also love anything with hearts on it and Valentine's Day is the best time to find that. My kids are 19 and 26 and still know that they are my #1 sweethearts, so they get Valentine's Day cards and gifts too :)

We pretty much go out to eat dinner because my husband loves to eat and especially going out. Basically, he acts like it's about taking me out, but it's for him!

I would love be a suzy homemaker and make albums but it ain't happening!

And just to comment about RockBandBarbie...I can just see her with her chocolate baggie now! lol
