Valentines Day is Coming

Other than taking your girl to see the Valentine's day block buster of DeadPool What else are you getting your girl/lady/wife this year?
If your not taking her to see DeadPool use this pic to convince her what type of movie it is


Otherwise for the past 7 or 8 years I have always made my girl a V-Day card. This year we recently bought a JK so I decided to make her a Jeep Card.

It is a french fold so it folds in half twice to make a card. See Here
Along with a custom made Delete plate with License and brake light. Blacked out front fender signal lights and a Small Lift kit all for her new JK.

What you guys doing?

She's in Florida and I'm in Arkansas until the week after. I have a bowling tournament that weekend. I'll send her a card.

The idea for a homemade card I've also found to a winner, and fun to do. Every year it does get more difficult to come up with something new... along with our anniversary, her birthday and Christmas. I think Valentines is on the bottom of those events, so no jewelry or big gifts. We go out to dinner all the time, so I generally don't do that. A couple years ago I cooked her a redneck themed dinner with fried spam and a bunch of junk food we never eat, and related decorations too! She liked the effort I put into it and it was fun. My wife is a cool chick and worth it.

I dunno...We've got two kids (11 & 14) and things have been so tight financially that for the past several years we haven't really celebrated Vday. I have some ideas though.....

There are a few places out on the ranch only accessible by Jeep with nice views....I could set up a table and cook up something good. I think my wife would like that....

If money is tight make a V-day card. Its always cheaper and have the kids help.
Great idea about going out in the jeep on the ranch. Just stop at Wendy's or Burger King and picnic out in the middle of no where with the Jeep, I know my girl would love that.

Welp, I got roped into helping the old man work cattle Saturday. That's the bad news. The good news is, my wife says she wants me to take her to see Deadpool for V-Day.....

Also, working cattle with my dad is kinda like wheeling but with lots of honking and Earl hanging out the window calling his babies. So there is that, try to make the best of it.

^Those steaks look good!

Well the wife and I did the dinner out at a nice lake side restaurant. Service was a little slower as they added a bunch of individual tables, and I think it was kind of sad as like we were just another couple with nothing better to do then go out for dinner. We shared a bottle of wine and had a nice conversation otherwise, but I think we'll skip that for say the next ten years!
