With permission from Kristina over at Kristina Kuzmic.com, I share this delightfully awesome idea for a very cool inexpensive Valentine’s Day:
A few years ago for Valentine’s Day, I told my husband I’d like to take him out. I asked him to wear his best suit, and told him I’d be wearing a gown. We had a reservation at a very nice restaurant.
But really we had a ‘reservation’ at Del Taco, my husband’s favorite fast food joint. (For those of you unfamiliar with Del Taco, it’s no fancier than a Taco Bell.) As I pulled into the parking lot, my husband started laughing, assuming I was joking. I wasn’t. I took his hand and walked him in for our Valentine’s Day date. Our table was already set. White table cloth, linen napkins, champagne glasses and a beautiful center piece of fresh flowers. (And, of course, I made sure the table was right in the center of the fast food restaurant, where everyone coming in had to pass by us to get to the food counter.)
