Valentines Day Mom Truth Talk
Call me crazy, but after being married for 10 years and having 2 kids under 10, if Valentine’s day doesn’t fall on a Friday or Saturday I really don’t want to go out. I work all day. Chase the kids all day. Run errands all day. All I want is my fat girl sweats some good food and a movie snuggled up on my cozy couch.
Now don’t get me wrong I love it when he plans special dates and when we have a date night. But sometimes a romantic Dinner for Two with a bottle of wine is all I need. No heals, no makeup, no bra and the understanding that I am tired and just want to snuggle is enough.
Any mom’s out there that feel the same way?
If you do feel the same way make it an impressive, special, and cozy night with one or maybe two of these Valentine’s Dinner for Two favorites and stay in!
