TBT + Are you celebrating Valentine's Day?

Though I love all things red and pink for Valentines Day, we typically don't do much for the occasion. Last week we had a date night and this weekend we will be snowmobiling with my sisters, future BIL, cousins, aunt and uncle. So probably not so romantic this year. For the last couple of years we've just made good steaks and enjoyed wine and dessert at home. That's a great Valentine's in my opinion! We were never into the big dinner out where restaurants are overcrowded and menu prices and jacked out the wazoo (is that a phrase?) just for this one day. Although last week's date night definitely gave me a hankering to go out for a nice dinner again soon :)

We also don't exchange gifts, save for cards and maybe a candy bar or two. This year, I have a few sweet valentine shirts for P and she'll be getting a Sofia the First toy mailbox filled with pocky, stickers and other trinkets (--->why are kids Valentine's treats so adorable? Curse you Target One Spot).

I also may be enjoying a brownie batter doughnut tomorrow in honor of the holiday. Just sayin'.


Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? What's your favorite way to celebrate?
