No big plans for the weekend, though my husband and I will be donning our skates at our City’s ‘Sweetheart Skate’ at lunchtime today!

Rae said...

How I adore those clocks!! I am preparing Primary Sharing Time tonight, celebrating my daughter's birthday with an ice skating party tomorrow and enjoying shrimp scampi and cheesecake with the family after church on Sunday! Not the most romantic weekend but that's okay....I'm still surrounded by the ones I love!

Cara said...

They are gorgeous! I will be studying most of the weekend so our plans are pretty low key, dinner and shopping.

country girl said...

Wonderful!
On Valentine's Day my ion-laws are coming over to have a little belated birthday celebration for moi. I'm making chocolate cupcakes. Oh, yum.

lindsey said...

These are wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway!

For Valentine's, my Husband and I are meeting up with my Mum and Step-dad in a city that's half-way for both of us to drive. We'll dine and shop and enjoy each other's company. I can't wait!

Katie H said...

What beautiful clocks!

We had plans to use a Christmas gift card & have dinner out on the town, but we're both battling the flu, so it looks like we'll hit the hay this weekend & postpone our plans. :(

Mari said...

I sent the love of my life off this morning for a week long golf trip. That's love, yes?! I am going to relax and enjoy the massage he got for me and savor the leftovers and memories from the delicious homemade noodles and chicken we made together.
Time is tick, tick, ticking until his return!
Happy Valentine's Day!

pghjezebel said...

No big vday plans for us. Just ogranizing the basement that was recently refinished!

andrea said...

I love that orange bird clock especially! Just dinner out...with 2 little ones we're lucky to be able to get out at all!

Leslie said...

I think we're just going to do dinner and a movie in the comfort of our own home. With three little ones, it's hard to do otherwise!
Love the clocks! :)

annemarie said...

No big plans - stay home, keep warm and bake up some goodies. This is my kind of weekend!

Cass said...

I am taking off right NOW for two days alone .... my hubby has the boys and I have the car!!!

Catherine said...

I'm just hoping my 7 week old will nap and go to bed early enough that I can actually spend some time focusing on my husband!

smeagher said...

I love these clocks! They are on my "wish list."

Our plans are to stay home and cook a nice meal together. We're thinking lobster tails - YUM!

Catlin said...

We'll probably play in the 17" of snow we got this week, watch some movies, and I'll make my husband's favorite chocolate cake!

I really love these clocks more than anything else I have ever seen!

Kelly said...

lots of girl time with my other single friends. and the olympics!

Rambles with Reese said...

These clocks are so sweet!!

We have a lot of things planned for this weekend....other than celebrating Valentine's day with my sweetheart, we are cleaning the house from top to bottom because we had workers here to renovate the windows.

And instead of celebrating Valentine's on Sunday, I'm trying to plan a romantic day out tomorrow with my husband as a surprize.

Love your blog!

Teri said...

My beloved works in the Bering Sea in the winter... so there are no big Valentine's plans. Now April... that's another story!! LOL Instead I plan on blogging about my Valentine Day 'wifenapping'.

Amanda said...

Big plans are happening tonight--going out to dinner with my fiancee. The last Valentine's we'll have before we're married...

Karen Chow said...

we already celebrated as well. we went to a jazz concert and had a candlelight dinner at home. it wasn't a big deal and we had a good time.

Anonymous said...

Chocolate chip pancakes ...heart-shaped of course on Vanentine's morning. A little favorite candy for each child and a coupon worth a "Mom Date" to be used for future use. They can pick the activity and it will be a one-on-one date. I have three children. Hubby and I are going out for dinner and drinks. Love those clocks!!

beyond said...

i'm planning a romantic candlelight dinner at home with my husband.

Kristy said...

V-day plans include:
making little notes for my boys
a heart-y breakfast
romantic dinner on the town
fun dinner with in-laws
a little surprise present for hubby
whipping up a fabulous dessert

I can hardly wait!

Nadia said...

We'll probably spend the day unpacking in our new apartment. How romantic.

holtkamp said...

we don't usually go too crazy for v-day, just a nice, small romantic dinner, time to be alone, exchanging presents and reminising. i love theses clocks! :)

Courtney B said...

most exciting valentine's day ever... we are FINALLY getting ready to move back into our house after living in a hotel for the last 2 months!!! we are going out to breakfast and then packing and unpacking :)

Monika said...

We've been doing a heart day advent calendar full of treats and activities, sweet weekful of love love notes and crafts for hubby, homemade heart day cards for all completed...so we'll probably do family movie night and heart shaped decorated sugar cookies (18-year old son is going on a date with his special girl, though). If I don't win, I have to find a way to do this clock, I need one for my bathroom and haven't been able to find the perfect one, yet! Just gorgeous.

Terry said...

Having friends over for dinner and making the most delicious Chocolate Mousse Cake for dessert. The clocks are awesome.

Kellie said...

I'm headed to Salt Lake to give a new baby niece and the rest of my family some love!

Estee Renee said...

I'm showing my love for lots of people this weekend with phone dates and chat dates and dinners and more...

valeasc said...

I love these clocks! The bird plates are gorgeous!

My name is Valentina and since I was little I have always celebrated Valentine's Day in a big way! My Valentine's w/end starts tonight with the cinema (we are going to see *Valentine's Day* of course!), dinner out tomorrow at a local, nice restaurant and romantic dinner at home on Sunday, all home made.
Not bad!

J said...

Some sort of chocolate dessert for two...haven't decided what yet. It'll have cocoa and raspberries, though! These clocks are adorable.

Crystal Johnson said...

I am drooling over these clocks!

I am going for a well overdue haircut and color tonight and then we decided to babysit a friends little boy, so he and his wife could have a valentines dinner and movie. It's always better to give than recieve, right?! Ask me how I feel about that on Monday :)

meg said...

breckenridge weekend with the girls: olympics, skiing, movies!

summer said...

seriously?! this is my current favorite shop! oh my.. how i've been dreaming of one of these fine clocks.

as for valentine plans.. i'm liking your homemade pizza idea, marta. there will also be cheesecake, netflix, and pink plates.

Amanda B. said...

Big Plans?? Nothing more than spending an evening with him snuggled on the couch with an old movie and our favorite snacks... ideal! Our crazy work schedules, including traveling, has allowed us to see each other twice in the past 14 days... not ideal.

dontbegay said...

a little cafe rio valentines party at a friends

Hil said...

sugar cookies with my little girl, and love notes and take out with my husband. I love these clocks!!

Liv said...

Our tradition of "grown up grilled cheese- gorgonzola cheese, bread drizzled with honey and tomato soup, IBC root beer, and peanut butter pie."

We love it.

tammy said...

exchanging homemade cards, a lovely dinner at home, brownies and a movie -- all with my husband and my son!

lovely clocks! great giveaway.

Lovely Little Nest said...

How fun!

Actually, I'm not sure what my plans are because every year, my husband surprises me. So, I won't know what I'm doing until I wake up on Sunday morning!

However, my part of the plans involves giving him a homemade card {that I'm selling on etsy}, homemade apple pie minis in cute little DIY boxes {found on twigandthistle.com/blog}, and "The Dangerous Book for Boys" :)

Hannah said...

Wish we had big plans! We are staying in. Husband is planning to make dinner on Sunday. Nothing more romantic than a man in the kitchen.

tawnya said...

A lovely date with my hubby tomorrow, spaghetti and meatballs with the family Sunday evening.

debby said...

i have been eying these clocks for some time now. love them.

we are opting for a quiet valentines this year. spending time at home with our two little ones and going to my parents for dinner. sunday is their 30th wedding anniversary.

thelyttlesinpa said...

My plans for Valentine's day is to have a baby! I am due the 18th, but having some mild contractions on and off for the last week. Valentine's day is special in our home- the day my husband and I met!

Sandy said...

this clock would go GREAT in my basement once it is done being renovated! love the colors in it!! we're actually going to a local steakhouse for dinner on vday, we haven't gone out to eat in forever!!!

Christine said...

the boy will be coming back from a snowboarding trip on valentine's day... and a big crockpot of bbq pulled pork (his favorite) will be waiting for him!

megan... said...

It is my husbands turn this year. (we take turns) so I'm delighted to know that he is planning it and I have no idea.

Love these clocks- it would be the perfect punch of color to help de-ikea-ize our kitchen!

shirley elizabeth said...

Tomorrow morning we are going rock climbing, then to a niece's birthday party, then to a concert of a couple of our favorite bands. Then Sunday we're going to church and replacing our bedroom lights with red bulbs :-)

Jen said...

We are going for a hike tomorrow - no rain forecasted, but fingers crossed! Sunday will be low key, dinner at home.

claytonandmandy said...

I LOVE these clocks! We are moving and this would be the perfect addition to our new apartment! As far as Valentines plans, we are keeping things low-key this year. Dinner and a movie with small gifts. It couldn't be more perfect.

cleverly content said...

sadly, our plans include a funeral but I am still excited to spend time with the hubby eating at our favorite resturaunt.

Diana Hulme said...

so pretty! :) v-day will be simple - romantic dinner & handmade valentines.

Eliza said...

making our traditional homemade pizza with my hubby!

PDX Bride said...

Nothing too exciting . . . just dinner at our traditional Valentines Day restaurant!

Alyssa said...

Basically, a good meal and stake conference. :)

Kim said...

We are headed to the ocean for a long weekend!

Katie {My Paisley Apron} said...

These are beautiful! We are moving into a new house in 2 weeks, and one of these clocks would be so perfect to decorate our new home. This weekend, we are celebrating our son's birthday on Saturday by going out to dinner with his aunt and uncle. My husband works on Valentine's Day but I'm sure we'll fit a little gift exchange and celebration in there somewhere!

Desiree said...

these are awesome!
the boy and I are going to feast at the india oven, then go to the st. vincent show here in denver. can't wait!

jeffrey said...

our traditional fondue fest on the big day - and a surprise visit by friends from georgia!

Amanda said...

oh, i love these clocks! we don't have any giant plans for the weekend (we've been gone the last two), so staying home sounds simply lovely!! we just got a pasta roller, so we're going to make a nice homemade dinner with that... we're thinking some yummy raviolis! : ) and i'm going to make my fabulous honey his favorite cupcakes: mini lemon poppy seed cupcakes with lemon glaze. yum!!

thanks for all the fun give aways! -- amanda jorgenson

Inha said...

As my husband says, "it's not just valentine's day" (it's also his bday) - celebrating with the kids by eating lots of dessert before dinner :)

Skye said...

These are so lovely!

My honey and I will be heading over to a friend's house for a big Valentines dinner. Can't wait!

Lucy said...

our big plans are actually pretty little plans. and to be honest, they're not even all that solidified yet. I know I'll make a nice (but affordable) dinner for us, I know there will be candlelight and no tv (for once). maybe a movie. maybe we'll go for a walk (if the temp is above 12). i guess all I really know is that it will be simple and solely about us. :)

Alissa said...

I was just placed on bedrest, so will be spending the weekend in bed. Hoping to get a valentine massage out of the deal though!

rosa said...

My husband and I have never been big in to celebrating Valentine's Day. I don't like a holiday that makes people feel bad about not having that special someone in their life. Sometimes it just takes longer to find that person. But, we are going to do something fun! We're getting together with a big group of friends (couples and singles) taking the train in to the city (Chicago, that is) and going on an urban hike. We'll walk around the city for a couple hours than make our way to an awesome restaurant for some grub. Valentine's Day should be about spending time with the "people" you love not about a box of chocolates.

P.S. Love, love, love those clocks!

Thelma said...

I love the clocks! We are preparing a seven (!) course dinner for our kids on Sunday evening.

Michael - Innkeeper said...

trying to make other peoples v-day special here at my lil' inn.

saltbox girl said...

These clocks are to-die-for adorable! Since Valentine's Day is on Sunday, we're stretching it out the whole weekend. Dinner tonight, Ute game tomorrow and time with family Sunday. Hope yours is super sweet!

Lisa said...

My big Valentine's weekend includes convalescing from an emergency appendectomy. By beautiful boyfriend is acting as my personal nurse, and your blog is one of the things keeping me positive and entertained. Well, that, and all 6 hours of the BBC miniseries "Pride and Prejudice".

Abby said...

Big weekend plans...to clean my house! Love these cute little clocks.

iamrobyn said...

Well, I happen to be from a tiny little city called Vancouver (hee), so this weekend will be spent enjoy the electricity of the Olympics!! so excited.

Andria said...

I'm doing an online retreat all weekend. We are ordering in food. Relaxing. And enjoying the pups.

Slim Pikins said...

These clocks are irresistible! This Valentine weekend will be spent slobbering my family with valentines galore. Perhaps a lovely dinner on that fine Sunday will be included as well. Oh, I love the love.

Liz said...

Wow, what beautiful clocks!

My husband and I will probably stay in for the weekend, because our anniversary was a couple days ago, so we've already done the couples massage & romantic dinner thing this week - but then again, he is the master of surprises, so who knows!

Jenni said...

Oh my goodness I dont know how you could ever pick just 1! They are beautiful!

Season said...

So cute! We are staying in and having dinner and dessert. Yum.

Nessa said...

The clocks are just too cute!

We will be spending the evening at home, with our little one. What could be sweeter? Hope your valentines is filled with love.

Loren said...

Love these clocks!
We actually decided to have our own Valentine's day a month later to avoid the crowds, the overpriced restaurants and bad service. BUT, since we're 'free' this weekend, we've agreed to babysit for two other family friends (one Friday night, one Saturday night) so they can celebrate Valentine's day. We're excited!
But when we do celebrate, we're going to drive the 49 mile scenic route in San Francisco. We've lived about 20 minutes north of SF for 9 years and have never done it before!

Jaclyn said...

It is my fiance's and my parent's anniversary on V-Day so we are taking them both out for special lunches and dinners - love and familiy go hand in hand so it works! Thanks for the chance!

Brooke said...

Such cute clocks!

Ideally, couples massage and general laziness at Grand America followed by dinner at 5 Alls. Realistically, work for clients, work at home, maybe squeeze in the movie Valentine's Day if we have time - thanks to excellent Christmas presents of movie gift certificates, of course :)

KK said...

Okay, two things, I'm loving these clocks. They are so pretty and perfect.
And, my weekend plans? I'm a single girl going on her first ever Valentine's date. Should be fun.

Jess said...

Two birthday parties this weekend...We'll probably do dinner and an adventure on Monday. Love these clocks!

Carissa Rasmussen said...

Our tradition is to hit up the slopes and then enjoy a nice homemade meal and hot chocolate with a movie:)

jen byard said...

Oh, I just decided that I wanted one of her clocks and here it is on your blog! That must mean I'm supposed to win :)
My valentines treat is a new cut and color and dinner out with my husband...he's keeping the restaurant a secret....

Sassy Sarah said...

Such adorable clocks! This weekend we're going to spend hiking and enjoying each other's company. :)

Mara said...

Lots of love and kisses with my sweet family and hopefully some home baked cookies too!

Every clock is awesome! How creative!

Our plans are playing in the snow with the kids, watching the Olympics, and baking up some comfort foods.

Shimmy Shake said...

Quiet night - three kids, and chocolate fondue.

tissy said...

I am MOVING!! Finally getting myself out of an emotionally draining situation.

The decision was made on Monday of this week. I found an apartment, a subletter AND the money for first, last and security in 5 DAYS.

I love fairehoure clocks. It would be an AMAZING addition to my new drama-free home.

MH said...

with a brand new baby in the house i think we will do some pf changs takeout over candle light and exchange little gifts!

We just moved into a brand new ward and are attending their fancy Valentines supper tonight. We're hoping to meet some new friends, as well as keep kindling our love.

maryirene said...

traditionally we put the kids to bed and then have artichoke cheese fondue and for dessert chocolate fondue. this year our friends are coming to stay for the weekend so we are going to have them join us in our fondue party. yum.

lovely lindsay said...

so many goodies coming from you lately! love this!
+++
i'm in charge of valentines this year and have a few secrets up my sleeve. a cuddle on the couch with my valentine would make me happy as could be.
love, lindsay

Nicole said...

I love her clocks!

As for Valentine's plans, I'm really not sure what's in store. We have been snowed in for the past week, so my Valentine's day shopping has seriously suffered. It may just be a simple one this year. Not sure what the hubby has planned, though.

Kathy said...

I would love to win. This shop is on my list of favorites! My sister and her family are due this evening for the weekend. Can't wait! I am making your mini molten cakes for dessert.

s.eileen said...

i'm going to texas to see dear friends i haven't seen in years. (we always make amazing food).

whitney said...

I'm going to see Valentine's Day, go antiquing with a friend, have a busy church day and hopefully get lots of projects done.

Cheri said...

Oh my gosh, the clocks are so cute!

We don't do much for Valentines day...maybe we will go out to dinner. Will definitely go for a hike with our sweet, adorable puppy. :)

Through the Looking Glass said...

Valentine's is all about the kids these days: Pink tablecloth, heart confetti, pink milk, heart-shaped pancakes and treats. True love.

Lisa said...

This is probably going to be the best v-day weekend ever. The in-laws are taking our boy and we get to party alone for two whole days!!

cay said...

Looks like I'll be taking care of my sick husband. So it's conjee instead of baby back ribs for us!

w and w said...

My sister's in town and looks like we'll be going to the circus with the kiddos. Soooo excited. Who wouldn't want to fall in love with the elephants?

Rachael said...

Going to the LDS temple in Los Angeles tonight, spending the night with my cousin at my other cousin (her brother) and his wife's home, helping them get ready for their new baby that's coming, and then spending Saturday afternoon on the beach or shopping somewhere fabulous that we can't afford, depending on whether it's raining or not. :) Sunday will be spent at church and meetings...as usual.

lilkwisteen said...

This year's Valentine's Day is the same day as the Chinese New Year. So, instead of being alone on a very love-filled holiday, I will be around my lovely family members for the celebration of the Chinese New Years!

NatTheFatRat said...

Oh dear, I really need to win this.

We are getting a pizza and hot wings. I've learned that Valentine's Day is much more enjoyable if you drop all expectations and just try and have fun with your husband :).

(See you at CBC!)

Lynn Osborne said...

No big plans, just being together and enjoying a slower pace this weekend. Thanks for the chance to win!

mj said...

Big plans this week: toddler v-day party, PROM (we graduated from high school 10+ years ago, but we're getting a big group together to have prom...dresses, hair, picture, dancing, everything...) and hubby's birthday on valentine's day. love it.

Whit said...

i was just looking at these the other day and dreaming up all kinds of ridiculously fun plates i could find and make one for myself!

Leslie said...

After a long week in Las Vegas for work, I came home to my real home with my Dad. I plan to let him cook for me and nap. A lot of napping is involved. Vegas takes a lot out of a person...

CharityMay said...

this weekend, i'll be watching the olympics and going to my sister-in-law's birthday party (she was born on valentine's day and we have a huge family party every year). hubs actually gave me my gift today... two gift certificates for full-body massages! after 7 years of hinting that would be a great gift, he really came through! he even bought his own present this year, an ipod touch. he is so good!

We're Not in Kansas Anymore said...

Hooray- my plans include my sister and mom visiting from out of town and my husband and I going out for a quick, bunt delicious brunch!

I LOVE those clocks! Our plans for valentines: spending the day in New York City, one of the most romantic cities I can think of!

tj28@mi.rr.com said...

Valentines day! uh!! only the best day of the year. My little boys love stuffed animals, so i got them both an adorable new puppy softee. (my husband is going to kill me - "not another stuffed animal!?") but he doesn't see the love in their eyes when they hold them day after day. Then after church, it will be treats at the bookstore, and home for a surprise valentine and movie with my honey of a husband. :) Happy valentines everyone. ps. LOVE the floral clock plates! XoXo

Holly said...

As has been our tradition since we were dating, we're making a big pot of chili and staying in! Happy Valentine's Day!

These clocks are adorable!
