Some have been asking what I ended up doing for Valentine's Day. Well, the day of, I got him some candy and a card. (We agreed not to spend much money on gifts.) In the card was an invitation I made on the computer for the dinner I was planning. (He got me a tulip plant and card. He even wrote a poem too.)
For our dinner, I made fried mushrooms, salad, chicken wings, and champagne (some of his favorite foods). Then we went to the swimming/diving Big 12 Championship on campus. We have always wanted to see the diving. It was really good. Then we went out for ice cream (his other favorite food). I also pulled out a letter I had written to my future husband back in '02. I started a tradition in High School to write my future husband every Valentine's Day. I had lost some of them, but found one a few days ago, so it was perfect.
I think it was a big success.
