I’ve never done very much for Valentines day with Cowboy. Last year I had a teleconference for school at 7pm on Valentines day, so I made deep fried fish and chips, which went over SO well, seeing as I’d never made them before and he was so excited.
This year, for the first 14 days of February, I’m going to do a little something for Cowboy. I’m going to share my plan, because I know he doesn’t read this blog. He rarely gets on the computer, and I know he’s not even a fan of Venison for Dinner of Facebook. (WHAT?!, why doesn’t he?! I don’t know…maybe I should suggest it) I didn’t want it to be a hugely material thing, because
a) I don’t have the money to spend on a bunch of presents, but
b) Most importantly, we don’t need more ‘stuff’ and I knew I could show my love without big gifts!
More than anything, I knew it would be food, making special meals that he likes.
So here are the 14 things, not in order, of what I’m going to make.
Heart Shaped Rice Krispie Squares
He loves these and I never make them, so I’m going to do them especially for him!
Heart Shaped Rebar Chocolate Cake
This is a more labour intensive cake, and does cost about $15 in chocolate and dairy products, to make, but is very worth it for the smiles and compliments I get from him. And the marriage proposals from the others who eat it. (Look for this recipe later in the week!)
Love note tucked into the work truck five different times.
I’ll put these places like where he writes down his hours, where he puts gas money, where is binoculars are. Things I know he uses a lot and will find within a day or two. They won’t be long, maybe just a paragraph or two, but the point of them is to let him know how much he means to me.
3 different favourite dinners
I’ll to 2 different seafood dishes (I don’t particularly like seafood, so this is huge), and 1 Venison dish, made especially with him in mind
Rootbeer in glass bottles
He loves rootbeer and it’s fun in the glass bottles. Crazy thing is I just checked the sales flyers on Sunday and really good rootbeer in glass bottles in on sale this week! Right on! I don’t usually buy pop, so that makes it special as well.
Chocolates 2 different times
I’ll put them in his truck, I’ve already bought these from our local Chocolate shop. They make them here on island!
Rent a movie just for him
He has some space alien movie he wants to see, so I’ll sneakily get it out of him, rent it and make no complaints about watching it with him. I don’t really like alien or scary movies, so I am good about being grumpy and not wanting to watch them. This time, I’ll make popcorn, maybe get out the rootbeer! (I’ll buy extra so he’ll have it one day, and then for this) and enjoy spending time with him, and him enjoying it, even if don’t really want to watch it.
I’m not sure if I’ll tell him…maybe it’d be fun not to, see if he figures it out!
What do you think of these? It’s fun to think of ways to show your Husband that you love them, and it’ll be fun for me doing it. Do you think you could do something like this? Maybe you could commit to 3 days of doing it?
