Valentine’s Day is coming up and I have to admit that my husband and I don’t have any plans as of yet. My husband wants to go out and do something special on Saturday night (Valentine’s Day is a Sunday this year – and the Walking Dead returns – we can’t miss that! LOL!). He keeps asking me what “I” want to do (he’s not giving me any feedback on what HE wants to do). He keeps asking me if I want to go out to dinner, go see a movie or maybe go and see a show at the comedy club. Frankly, I’m content to stay home and just enjoy a quiet evening with my husband.
Our daughter is gone all day (literally) on Saturdays. It’s the only day her and her boyfriend can really hang out together so he picks her up around 8:00 AM and she comes home at midnight. That just leaves our son. Our son is a teenager and rarely leaves his room except to eat, drink or when “nature calls.” So technically my husband and I do have alone time, even if our son is home.
My idea for this Valentine’s Day is to stay home. I’d like for both of us to stay in bed longer than we usually wood. We are up and getting ready for work at 5:45 AM all week long. It would be nice to stay in bed a bit longer.
A nice breakfast would also be a great way to start the day. During the week we have to inhale whatever breakfast we can make on the go because we don’t have time for a nice, sit down breakfast.
Weather permitting, if it’s nice outside I’d love to go on a long walk with my husband in the afternoon.
For dinner I would like to order from our favorite Italian restaurant and have them deliver our meal so that I don’t have to cook or worry about dishes.
For the rest of the time I would love to snuggle with my husband on the couch and watch romantic movies all day (and night) long.
We have Netflix and Netflix has dozens of romantic movies that would be ideal to watch on Valentine’s Day. From “Romcoms” (romantic comedies) to total “tear jerkers” – Netflix has something for everyone to enjoy.
My husband would rather watch romantic comedies. He said “tear jerkers” don’t seem very romantic to him. I can understand what he means by that, but come one, how can you not want to cling to your loved one when watching a Nicholas Sparks film? The Best of Me, a film based on a Nicholas Sparks film, is available on Netflix. I totally plan on watching it Valentine’s Day weekend. That is the only Nicholas Sparks film I can find that is available for streaming from Netflix. Other Nicholas Sparks films are available from Netflix on DVD.
Here are some more romantic films to consider watching with your special loved one that are currently available on Netflix.
Notting Hill – Classic romantic film.
13 Going on 30 – A cute film with a romantic twist.
Bridget Jones’ Diary – I love this film, and the sequel.
Urban Cowboy – An oldie but goodie.
The Wedding Date – A film about finding love even when you are not looking for it.
Meet My Valentine – Cute film. Reminds me of a made-for-TV type of film.
If you have Netflix’s DVD service, the film Love, Actually is available. I have heard people call it one of the best romantic movies of all time (I don’t think so – but it’s still a great movie).
If you find that you are single this Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of great films to enjoy by yourself or with a friend.
I Hate Valentine’s Day (it’s actually a romantic comedy – but you’ve got to love the title)
Burying the Ex – It’s a silly horror movie, but it’s funny.
Last Love – Sometimes we find love in the most unexpected places – and not all love needs to be the romantic kind.
And if all goes well, you might find the film Nine Months a bit more appropriate a couple of months from now. LOL!
Skip the long lines at a restaurant. Forget about expensive flowers that will die in a few days. Do something different this year and spend Valentine’s Day at home with delivered food, a bottle of bubbly, a fuzzy blanket and that special someone to curl up with on the couch and enjoy romantic movies. That is what we plan on doing this year.
