Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone and this year my husband and I were able to enjoy each other’s company on the actual day!
We are extremely busy parents to 3 active boys so this is a very rare occurrence. We thought for sure finding a baby sitter on Valentine’s Day just wasn’t going to happen. I know it’s cliché and over rated but it was on my bucket list.
Not one week before Valentine’s Day I noticed someone in my neighborhood advertising that they would be watching kids in their daycare center. They are hoping to expand their facility and this is a way to raise awareness and make a little extra money. I jumped at the chance.
My husband emailed the manager at our favorite restaurant, Kona Grill, and made arrangements to pick up sushi after he dropped the kids off Saturday.
Why did we choose to pick up food and not go out?
Why fight the crowds when you can enjoy your favorite meal by candlelight at home?
While he was out taking care of the kids and the food, I prepared dessert and set the table.
Everything was perfect and I hope we can do it again next year!
