Enjoy Dinner & A Movie This Valentine’s Day – Giveaway

discover vday

With moving and the holiday season past us, it is finally time that we as a married couple spend some quality quiet time together away from the kids. With both of our older kids in school I finally have the free time to work on what I need to get done so we have extra time to do things for us.

We are finally more settled in and are planning some things to do as parents with no kids.  We like to spend time alone and like to plan out extended trips such as overnight stays or day excursions. However, finding someone to watch 3 kids including a 19 month old is not always easy. That is why when we get the chance to enjoy it, we enjoy it!

We are always looking to save money and use group buying sites, such as Groupon to save money when making plans. Whether it’s for a movie, restaurant, or resort stay we always look for ways to save or get some kind of reward. There is always money to be saved by being a savvy shopper.

  61. Christina on February 7, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Hubby has been working out of town a lot the past month, so this year our Valentines Plans are for the family. We are going to take the kids to do something fun (haven’t decided yet, waiting to see what the weather will be like) and then we’ll either get dinner or just go out for dessert.



  62. Cynthia R on February 7, 2014 at 11:53 am

    My favorite is going to dinner and spending some time cuddling on the couch watching a good movie.



  63. Amanda A on February 7, 2014 at 11:52 am

    We don’t have any plans. 🙁 My hubby has to work on Valentine’s day (life of a chef) and then on the 15th he is doing a private catered event for Firefighters. Maybe he will surprise me the evening on the 15th? I guess it says who needs one day to show how much you love someone right?



  64. Monique Rizzo on February 7, 2014 at 11:04 am

    We would go to a movie and dinner.
    Thanks for the chance.

  84. tammigirl on February 7, 2014 at 7:40 am

    I do not have plans for Valentine’s Day yet. My husband did ask if I wanted to make reservations at The Melting Pot, which is an hour away. I am not sure what else we might do, or even if our direction will change between now and then.

    I would love to do something a little different, but the truth is; I do not enjoy going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day with all the crowds.



  85. tammigirl on February 7, 2014 at 7:39 am

    I do not have plans for Valentine’s Day yet. My husband did ask if I wanted to make reservations at The Melting Pot, which is an hour away. I am not sure what else we might do, or even if our direction will change between now and then.



  86. Brandy on February 7, 2014 at 7:36 am

    We are going to try to sneak away for lunch together while kids are in school, but 1. we have to see if we have the money and 2. There are new college recruits on campus that day, so hubby will have to get someone to fill in.

    Thats my only plan, otherwise I will be alone with the kiddos.



  87. Kristie on February 7, 2014 at 7:36 am

    It sounds like I’ll be taking my daughter to sell girl scout cookies at a local winery on Valentine’s Day…not exactly how I’d usually spend a Valentine’s Day. 😉



  88. Kimmy Ripley on February 7, 2014 at 7:33 am

    Hopefully my husband and I will be going out for a sushi dinner!



  89. Kim H on February 7, 2014 at 7:22 am

    My husband and I are having date night…movies and Seafood



  90. Betty on February 7, 2014 at 6:40 am

    One of those great days to stay home, watch the olympics and enjoy stress free dining at home. We’ve adapted to ignoring the hype of Valentines day as we have our anniversary 2 days later. Works out beautifully – no difficulty getting reservations or parking and eating out has so much less stress



  91. debbie on February 7, 2014 at 5:58 am

    Nothing much, maybe just cooking a nice dinner.



  92. Gayle J on February 7, 2014 at 5:53 am
