Now with kids and having to pay a babysitter, we don't want to have to pay for 2 1/2 hours of sitting there waiting. Instead, our family does something a little different. On Valentines Day we stay in, avoiding the horrifically crowded restaurants and have a Fancy Family Valentine's Dinner.
It begins with small little treats from the dollar store and Target $ bin
I have discovered around Valentines that Costco carries heart shaped ravioli. Eric and I are big sushi fans so will buy some store bought sushi for our meal (yes not as good as a restaurant but it works).
We eat by candlelight.
What do you do on Valentines?
