Does anyone remember the last time they tried to go out to dinner on Valentine’s Day? I can’t even tell you how many years it has been since I have gone out. My husband and I have spent Valentine’s at home since we were married. I love this holiday, but trying to eat out on this one night usually presents a list of problems: 1. Most restaurants are over-crowded and you will wait hours even with a reservation. 2. The menu will be ‘prix-fixe’ and you will have zero options on what to eat. 3. Your dinner will take 3+ hours and the waiter will probably have visited your table a handful of times, but not enough to keep your wine glass full. 4. If you live in the Daytona area, it’s extra crowded as it’s race week. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

These were not issues I cared about when I was younger. I would be ecstatic to dress up and sit at a restaurant for hours waiting on my Valentine’s meal. My husband definitely is not one for crowds or waiting long for anything so he has definitely rubbed off on me. It is more fun to enjoy a cozy Valentine’s at home so I am thankful he did rub off on me!

I wanted to find so many cute and sexy dresses to post for Valentine’s, but if you are anything like me, you will spend Valentine’s at home. Don’t get me wrong, we still celebrate and we make it a romantic night, but I rarely have the need to dress up. With that in mind, I thought I would put a list together of cute pieces that make sense for those of us who will toast to our significant other on the couch. When I say ‘cute’, I mean ‘pink’ because, after-all, it is Valentine’s Day.

In full disclosure, these pictures with Andrew were taken first thing this morning after a full blown allergy attack. While this is my casual Valentine’s at home outfit, I hope my eyes aren’t quite this puffy next week.

What does everyone have planned for Valentine’s?!?
