    Re: Plans for Valentine's Day?

    No matter how late...it's always refreshing to hear of LOVE and the thought of gift giving to one another!

    Re: Plans for Valentine's Day?

    Here's my delayed response to this thread. Due to emergency situations at work, my schedule faced a great deal of upheaval Valentine's Day week and the week prior. After working mornings, then evenings, eventually I found myself working all night (instead of early in the morning, which is my usual work time). As a result, I was pretty tired and disoriented and out of it.

    I suggested to my boyfriend that we each just pick a day in the ensuing two weeks where could we spontaneously surprise each other with something V-day-related. I wanted to be more awake and less exhausted so I could come up with something special--and also have the energy to properly appreciate my boyfriend's Vday contribution. (All this working at night had gotten me pretty grouchy; I know I wasn't fun to be around during that time!) However, it turned out that my boyfriend still chose to go the conventional route, and he got me roses the day of. Since I wasn't expecting it, especially in light of his agreeing to my suggestion of delaying Vday until my work schedule calmed down, it definitely surprised me! :-) Later on in the week I surprised him with something personal that I created, and he seemed to like it.

    Pzarquon...

    My hubby's family/relatives & I have been there a few times, &
    we really like it alot. Glad the wife liked the idea of receiving roses. I think going out to eat is much more romatic than having receive a ceritificate, I think. But then again, that's just MHO.

    Glen....

    Never been to Palomino's & I think we( my hubby & I) should try it out, someday. Glad the
    dinner had chocolate along with the dinner, sounds like you had a really nice dinner.


    Miulang....

    Nope, definately have never gone there for dinner.

    Seriously, glad that your home made dinner of roast duck etc...(if I mention the whole thing, might start to get hungry again. LOL) had turned out great, & so was your valentine's day.

    Any more replies? Would like to hear more if any one else want to share.

    Thanks gang, for the wonderful experiences shared of your valentine's day.

    Aloha.

    while waiting for hubby, or for me to get drousy.

    Worse comes to worse, either a good book to read or a nice hot milk.

    Something's gotta work.

    hope that helps.

    Aloha, & take care.

    It's too late to get reservations to anyplace nice for dinner tonight, so I'm making either duck with orange or pomegranate sauce, wild rice and steamed green beans and a molten truffle cake for dessert.

    If he doesn't at least get me a card, I'm going to whack him upside his head. But as long as he washes the dishes, takes out the garbage, cleans out the bathrooms and vaccums the house, I'm not going to complain!

    Duck turned out better than I expected (roast duck with pomegranate sauce), truffle cake was sublime. Even had a bottle of 1994 Viansa Cabernet Reserve (yummy) to go with the meal. And belatedly, this morning, I had a half dozen red roses waiting for me when I got to work!

    We had an early Valentine's dinner at Palomino over the weekend, where we were unable to ID the yummy martini I'd had the last time we were there -- though not from lack of trying! On V-Day itself, we had a quiet dinner at home, followed by some really luxurious dark chocolate.

    With grandma watching the kids, the spousal unit and I escaped for a brief respite at Molly's Smokehouse, a southern food joint in Wahiawa. Also got a dozen roses, though in retrospect I think she would've preferred a $50 iTunes gift certificate instead!

    Well, it's still Valentine's Day, even though if it is late at night.

    Hope evryone had great & wonderful Valentine's Day.

    I went out with my hubby. He took me out to a nice lunch & a movie.

    He told me that, everyday is a Valentine's Day for us, because he always takes me out to lunch &/or dinner any way.

    Hope everyone had a great Valentine holiday.

    Aloha.
