Valentine's is just around the corner and I need a good idea for my man!
We're leaving for Maui the following week, so I'm hoping for a free/cheap idea. Just something that lets him know how much I love him and appreciate his hard work for our family.
In the past I've tried homemade coupon books, and those don't work so well. Unless of course the coupon reads "good for one free load of laundry: washed, dried, folded and put away." In which case the coupon gets redeemed immediately.
But that coupon for a moonlit trip to Big Rock? Yeah still in the envelope from 4 Christmases ago.
Also - what's the rule on re-wearing formals?
Every year (this this will be my 6th or 7th year) I volunteer at the Cure Finder's Valentine's Dinner and Dance. In years past, I've been able to find a good bargain on formal wear. Its two weekends away and I still have nothing to wear!
I had planned on wearing a LBD I had worn at my previous employer's Christmas party, but who was I kidding! That was over 6 years and more than 6 pounds ago!
This weekend I'm going out shopping and hope that I'll find a bargain, but looking for a bargain is usually hit or miss. Tirah has kindly offered to let me borrow something of hers, but since we're not exactly next door neighbors, I worry about postage costs, and of course fit.
What do you think? How many years should I wait before re-wearing the collection I have in my closet from the past 6 years? (Assuming those would fit of course.) While memories aren't that good and no one probably remembers my outfit from 2 years ago, there is a professional photographer on site who does formal portraits that I keep up in my office.
