Valentimes.

cupid 2 Pictures, Images and Photos
Once again Valentime's Day is upon us. (Yes, it's called "Valentimes" by my children.) What do y'all have planned for your sweeties? I want to hear all about it. Keep it PG rated, please!

I have plans. Big plans. But I cannot reveal these plans until Monday. I can share that part of these plans include a viewing of one of my favorite Francois Truffaut films, Jules & Jim.

It's French, it's about a love triangle, it's brilliant, and it's must-see. Before anyone asks, no...Scott will not be watching Jules & Jim with me. He will be watching the Star Wars franchise, for the 3429th time. I love him, I do.

Have a great weekend, and also a very Happy Valentime's Day!
XOXO,
Lula

Happy Valentimes Day!

Bawentimes, that's what it's called here by a five year old that needs speech therapy.

Dave will be working that evening, and I'll be babysitting so that some friends may go out and enjoy the evening.
Dave and I took full advantage of the 1.5 hours of free babysitting that we have on Wednesday nights while our kids are at AWANA, and we went out to dinner then. We sat in the bar! It was great.

oh, and Ben will be turning 9 that day, so we shall have cake. probably for breakfast, since Dave will be gone later.
Now that my dear is celebrating!

have a great weekend.

It's ValentiMes at our house, too.
The kids will be gone for the weekend, so I gave them their little gifts early. Candy, jewelery, stuff animals.
For hubby I got him a nice plaque celebrating the Gators' National Championship, and some candy, and some massage oil......I better be careful before I veer out of PG-13 land! ;o) We're going to do simple, fun things that we enjoy this weekend, and just have fun being together.

I have some ideas and will have to wait to see if they come through to share, but I am making my husband a great book with things I love about him... and our printer isn't working... frustrating. oh well, I am sure he will appreciate it whenever... :)

Amy said...

I know it's only the 13th but my big plans for the weekend are going to see Kid! I am so excited! Yay.
Have the best weekend!
Happy Valentines Day!

Francophile that I am, I have somehow never seen Jules et Jim. My husband would NOT watch that with me either, not even if I were, ahem, pleasuring him the whole time. He'd much rather spend that time with Scott watching Star Wars. We don't really have any plans for V-day. I'll probably make a nice dinner and then we'll watch a movie or two. Oh yeah, it's all romance around here.

Heather said...

Yes, we have Valentimes here too. I have to go catch up on your posts now...

April said...

Are you serious about that Jules et Jim??? That's bizarre...even for you, Lula!

I have no plans yet....any ideas?

I'm going shopping with Sarah Beth this morning...which is a giant celebration because with 6 kids and 2 steps, we don't get "sister-time" very often!

sassy stephanie said...

We will be celebrating "Balentine's" at our house. Have fun!

Bekah said...

i will be seeing "pink panther 2" while holding hands in the theater

what? that's not lame. plus you said to keep it PG. PP2 is rated PG...

would it make you feel better if i let D get to 2nd base? or is that approaching pg-13?

Amy said...

No definite plans here, but I will be with my sweetie and the kids. We just have to play it by ear.

Happy V-day!

Veggie Mom said...

I wish you a Merry ValenTIMES Day, and a Happy Friday the 13th, TOO!

Our Valentimes will consisit of me running the two kidlets around to different events while the hubster works a 16 hour shift. Romantic huh?

Kori said...

I have no idea. Possibly going to get some take out from somewhere maybe the Olive Garden an take it to the Hospital for my honey. But that so totally goes against the promise we made of no eating out. Cause you know it's pricey and we're saving for the Mouse House.

But I think the hubs will be ok with it. I mean it's Valentine's Day after all.

Elena said...

Driving on the interstate for hours with 4 darlins' sitting behind us. Doesn't that sound romantic? :) You have a great time!! (And we listened to you playlist a little earlier this week. ;) )

My 50 yr. old boyfriend STILL calls it Valentimes....can't quite get him to correct that. I'll celebrate it with him anyway....bubbles, brandy and chocolate bon bons. I hope that was G rated enough!

Swirl Girl said...

You are so sophistimicated watchin' that there fereign film and all.

Linda said...

We've never really done much on Valentime's day. We don't make a big deal out of it. But I did express a desire for red meat ... as in having hubby BBQ a nice juicy steak ... don't be thinking I was going against the PG rule here. Seriously, do ever just crave steak? I think I may be anemic or something. How romantic is that? Anyhow, this year hubby and I did exchange gifts ... you'll have to check out my latest blog post.

Sending heart shaped hugs your way!

Heather said...

Happy Valentime's day, sweetie!

We have a basketball game to watch (Elijah), with me cheering obnoxiously from the sidelines...

Definitely dinner at home; no way would we fight the crowds.

Have fun with your Scotty. And planning a trip to Cincy :)

Gina said...

Balemtimes day is a big deal around here. The boy are going out together tonight to prepare.
Anyone want pink pancakes tomorrow with us?

Sun said...

Happy Anti-Valentines Day!! I'm wearing all black. ha.

Don't get me wrong.. I love my husband..I adore my

kids. I think it's all just so commercial. . . however, I

am so down with a sneaky plan such as yours.. I hope

you have a fabulous weekend !! xxx-

Marrdy said...

We're boring...we're going to dinner and then off to see Pink Panther II!

Carrie said...

I am going to a very lovely Dinner at the Country Club, where there will be dancing to a live band--Glenn Miller style!

With Midget.

I tried to bring the hubband, but he's much too large for petite little flower me to drag kicking and screaming.

Happy Valentines to me.

Stinkin bastage...

He's lucky I love him anyway! " )

Vicki said...

Have you seen Un Homme et Une Femme? and the sequel?

We've got lots of holidays, birthdays and an anniversary surrounding Valentine's so it gets lost in the fray. Have a great time doing it is whatever you're planning!

John Deere Mom said...

Steak, baked sweet potatoes, and raspberry/blackberry pie. With ice cream. And wine. Lots of wine.

Rhea said...

My children are now Star Wars fanatics. We have every Lego Star Wars ship possible. All over my den.

Shannon said...

Happy Valentimes! My girls still say it that way, too.
We didn't do anything but clean house. Family is coming over for dinner tomorrow. Hope you & Scott are having a good time ;)

ParentingPink said...

I've spent the last 2 weeks telling my daughter that it's not "valentimes," but "valentines."
