No flowers for me. We don''t really do anything. I got him a card, because I liked what it said.

The other day I picked out a Gerber daisy plant (my favorite flower) and some chocolates, I guess if we did gifts I would consider that it. :)

Nope. Not into flowers, and for the $$ you spend on it, they sure don''t last long!

I know he got me a present though, and I got him something too!

I''m not sure this year. He used to get me flowers all the time. Then one year he got me a mini-rosebush that still grows outside. He may or may not give me a flower/flowers this year.

I think he will, but I''m not positive. V-day is the only time he really gets me flowers, but this year is tough because I''m out of work and he''s still trying to get his finances together after being laid off and taking a new job. So we''ll see. We do have plans to stay at a hotel for the night and have a nice dinner.

V-Day is falling on a Saturday in Australia this year. I am hoping that on Friday my FI will surprise me and send flowers to my work but it’s a very small glimmer of hope as FI doesn’t believe in V-day nor flowers for that matter.


Last year I went to meet him for lunch (as we both work within walking distance from each other in the city) and I was hoping for flowers but he showed up empty handed

Then after that I went back to work as the green eyed monster staring at everyone else’s flowers that had been delivered on the day. By the time I finished work I was over it and convinced that I didn’t need flowers and that they die anyway (etc etc) and I went to meet FI at the bus stop to go home to find him holding a bouquet of a dozen long stem red roses....
30.gif


He finally said to me that he was too embarrassed to send them to my work as he preferred to give them to me in person cuz he thought it was a sweeter gesture...


Ah V-Day... I still don’t know if I am for or against it

FI used to send me flowers all the time back in college. My house mom in the sorority even commented on one bouquet that it was the biggest she had ever seen! Now FI isn''t too into that, so I told him flat out I expect flowers.

I usually get him lots of candy and make him a bag of stuff with a small gift like an xbox game or something

I am not expecting flowers, or much of anything. I told him to get me/do for me anything that he has said that he would over the last 5.5 yrs of our relationship that he HASN''T done yet.

I can remember them well, but he is struggling.

I''m looking forward to what he comes up with!

No. FI doesn''t bring me flowers on occasions--he just surprises me on any ol'' day, which is fun. We''ll go out to dinner on Valentine''s Day, and we''re off to Mexico in a couple weeks!

sadly, no. My husband hates the forced nature of valentine''s day, which i understand, i don''t like it much either. But i wouldn''t mind him trying romantic from time to time though...siigh

So what might your wife "expect" on Valentine''s Day, DF? A cold shoulder?

Yeah, expecting it AND getting it! We''ve been together 3 years now and he never missed it.

Although I''m more excited on the fact that Vday is a Saturday this year so we can spend the whole day together - flowers or no flowers!

Oh no, I never expect flowers from him. It really isn''t necessary, it''s so much more exciting to get flowers when you aren''t expecting it!

No.


However, he is (begrudgingly) letting me buy me the ring of my dreams... so I guess that counts!

not to thread jack - is this the ring you have been talking about?? hooray :)

Hey there - just noticed this!!
35.gif
Hi Jcarly!!
YES!!! THIS IS IT!!! I went to visit a showroom on Saturday (Jogia, he''s a Perth local diamond merchant) and had a fabulous time. I stayed there for three hours *embarrassed grin* and was completely worn out by the time I left.
I wanted to post a ''look what I''m getting '' thread on RT, but couldn''t remember the stats... it''s a H&A F SI1 1.11, to be set in a Tiffany-style knife-edge, with plain gold wedding band to match ... I''m so excited!! I''ll be posting pics, don''t worry!

Sorry about the threadjack, DF!

I doubt I''ll get flowers, but then I get them every couple of weeks or so anyway which I much prefer as it''s always a suprise.

We don''t celebrate V-day, but we do celebrate that it''s our x years + 6 months. We had our engagement party on V-day two years ago for that reason.

I bought really nice steaks and asparagus this afternoon, as well as a sticky toffee pudding and a pot of Cornish clotted cream, so I''ll be cooking dinner on Saturday.

No, but I am psyched I think I know what I''m going to get
36.gif
I gave him a hint how much I love a certain local handmade chocolates. We celebrated V day early by having a date last weekend. He brought up the other day if I wanted anything for Valentine''s day and told him not to get me anything, and he said, not even (blank) chocolates? And I said well I wouldn''t turn those down. I am just going to write him a sweet note/poem and well something else too but that''s for mature audiences.

Same here! And, in my new(ish) office, there are a ton of men around and very few women, so no one sees any flowers around here. On the few occasions that SO has sent flowers, only my assistant has ever noticed (besides me, of course!).

I told bf not to get me flowers. He looks at me and is like, "What if I already got you flowers..."
4.gif

I felt like an ass I explained that flowers are fine, but I wouldn''t be mad if I DIDN''T get flowers.

Last year I had the best flowers ever :) A regular bunch then the prettiest lone orchid in a vase with a teddy bear on it.. SO CUTE. Made everyone jealous ;-)

LOL FI just called me and said "Happy Valentine''s baby!" I told him it was tomorrow and he played it off like he was just kidding. My boy has a real problem with dates.
20.gif


He also asked, "whatcha getting me?" Now I have to stop somewhere and get him something?! We''re not a celebrate-valentine''s-day kind of couple, usually...

That chocolate Buddah is so cute!

I got flowers this past Wednesday, since it was our anniversary.

My friends FI gave her Friday the 13th roses out of protest.

I wasn''t expecting flowers because we don''t really celebrate V-day... But I got them! A beautiful arrangement with lillies, roses, gerber daisies, and a bunch more that I don''t know the names of. My hubby is so sweet!!!
