Just hoping everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!
DH was extra amazing, as always. Did our gift exchange- he gave me jewelry, flowers, fudge and my favorite Sees candies, I gve him some new sex toys for us to use. We lunched out at our fav restaurant in Anchorage, and then spent the rest of the day as a family. Gave our kids assorted chocolates, I made them special hearts shaped brownies, and DH cooked meatloaf, mashe potatoes and corn for dinner. We did family movie night until 10, and then...
Got to try out DHs new gifts from me.
Best part of the day, besides sexy time, was spending most the day together as a family. I love half days!
Ps- happy 3-4 day weekend depending on what your kids all have off from school!

Congratulations! Nothing can top that! Well, except for having a baby or getting married, but...
That's super exciting.
I logged off, so not sure if you will respond again, but I'm curious if it was a surprise, and how he popped the question!

Got nothing as always. Hhad a SUPER busy day at work & made good money- for once... SO worked 2pm-6am, I got the kids after work but stopped and got them little heart boxes of chocoloate (for a $1) and little water-color painting book with paint set, they loved it. No card... nothing from SO, BUT today, i woke up to yummy donuts he brought home as a be-lated Valentines' day gift.

[snip!] ... it came with a matching wedding band, so that's neat. Now I'm just ready for next week to get married and go on our honeymoon!!"</blockquote>
He seriously proposed on the can? Yikes!
The second proposal sounds so much better!!! Married in a week- hooray for you! Wish you the best!
my husband and i have had a rough time financially until recently but we are still very careful. i knew in advance we'd be lucky to get to go out to dinner. well he delievers pizza and made some great tips on valentines day... so when he got home (to his dads bc he works an hour and a half away if he works til 2 am one day and then has to be back in at 8 he just crashes at his dads) he ordered me flowers. my cousin came to visit and they were outside (i was in shower when delievery guy came) i was toatally shocked!!!! then we went to an "expensive" resteraunt instead of just applebees. it worked out great because our friend who usualy works friday nights happened to be off so we didnt have to take the baby with us. it was a wonderful day.

Why does he work so far away? How terrible to hav to be paying such high transportation costs!
Awesomeness for you, though, with the killer Vday!
we moved up here because he got a "better job" and bought a trailor. then after the baby was born he lost that job. he called his former boss (we both worked at the same place) and the boss offered him full time and a management position when he went back. we had to make a fast decision and he cant find work that pays as much up here. it costs him 20$ a day in gas (that includes the gas he uses when he ends up delievering pizza). he averages about 12$ an hour and theyre just isnt that kind of good full time work.
we thought about moving back, but if we did we would end up doubling our bills because the cost of living where we used to live is so much higher. right now we have monthly bills (since our trailor is paid for) that are around 700$ (lot rent, utilities, insurance) if we moved we would have to pay about 600$ in rent alone for a two bedroom really crappy apartment on top of utilities and insurance.
and it was awesome. last year we didnt do anything. we were living in public housing and eating food bank food and he was working that job we moved for and his wages were almost cut in half . very stressful third trimester for me.
