Jerry and I have never celebrated Valentine's Day by going out to a restaurant. When we were first together, I was still working part-time as a server so I always had to work V-Day and all the days that surrounded it (but, I honestly didn't mind: V-Day is a HUGE money-maker for restaurants and I always made fat cash). Then, in the past few years, we have always decided to do V-Day as a low-key dinner at home.
But I decided that this year, we're going OUT.
I hear that with children, going out becomes a little harder to arrange, so I figure that if we're gonna do V-Day up, this is the year to do it! So tonight we're going out to dinner to The Melting Pot for a delicious fondue-tastic meal (it was easier to get a reservation a few days before V-Day), and I'm excited to get a bit dressed up and enjoy a good meal out.
I just pray I keep it down.
