Love is in the air...and it costs money!

Holy cow, I cant imagine why people are paying so much just to have people know that you love them TODAY. My wife explained to me that it should be an everyday experience to tell the person you love that you love them and not some $75 dollar roses or $30 huge balloons. She DOES NOT, i repeat, DOES NOT like to get items sent to her work. Shes the kind of person that doesnt flaunt the fact that hey, my husband got something better than yours did. Dont tell her but I made her a card by hand.... and even though I am a budgeting fool, I caught the Valentine Fever and *embarassed to say* but I splurged on a weekend vacation to a nice 5 star resort. Ok I just got a little giddy because we work so hard and its just hard to find time to really relax. So I got a friend to watch our dog this weekend and my Part time doesnt start til march so I know we are both free. Of course its going to be expensive ($250 + spa package)! Oh well... what can i say, once a year I get bitten by the love bug, its VALENTINES DAY! :)
