I got this idea over at Stacy Makes Cents. Its a man's advice on what to get your husband for Valentine's Day. One idea was to make it a "man date" and serve food HE would want and to maybe watch a movie HE would appreciate. This got my wheels turning regarding my recent efforts to do more kind and thoughtful things for my husband. Why not make it about him instead of me? He does deserve a nice night all about him! He seriously is a hard worker and is working more than 50 hours a week to provide for our family right now! Making it about him doesn't discount the fact that its to celebrate our love for each other. After all, giving is better than receiving!
Our dinner is going to be gluten free pizza. Maybe I will even attempt to shape the dough into a heart! Casey really likes pizza and so do the kids so this will be enjoyable for everyone. I want to save dessert for after the kids are in bed (the date night part of our evening). Our sweet treat will be gluten free brownie sundaes. Then we'll watch a movie but not a chick flick! Something manly that Casey would enjoy. I don't know what movie we'll watch yet but I'll keep his personal interests in mind. I did check out Redbox.com and there are a few action movies that are available or coming out soon that he will like!
Oh, and I'll be making him a cute little card. I bought a bunch of Valentine's Day stickers in the dollar section at Target for writing cute love notes and cards for him so I'm already prepared! I think he really appreciates my homemade and personal notes over purchased cards anyway!
What do you think about a "man date" theme for Valentine's Day? I'd love to hear about your Valentine's Day plans or date night plans for the week!
