Valentine Movie Night at Home……. and Reasons Why I L♥ve my Husband

Valentine Movie Night at Home |

Valentine Movie Night at Home |

peanutbutter and I never really celebrated Valentine’s Day. This is one of those holidays where we rather stay at home than go out because it’s such a hassle to be anywhere else.

People seem to want to be in the same places at once. The cinemas are always full …………and the lines…. UGH!

Restaurants have way too much customers……

And then flowers… I don’t really care much about them. I admit, they are nice once in a while but I just think it’s a waste of money. I’d rather you give me something I could use in my daily life. Besides, their prices go sky high whenever the calendar says February 14.

So instead of going out, why not do something simple, creative and totally romantic in the comfort of your own home? Celebrate Valentines with a Movie Night.

Oh, I wish peanutbutter‘s here to spend  this movie night with me…

My Top 8 Romantic Movie pick would probably be:

  1. Jerry Maguire
  2. Crazy, Stupid, Love
  3. The Notebook
  4. Sleepless in Seattle
  5. Pretty Woman
  6. While You were Sleeping
  7. Notting Hill
  8. Ghost

Unfortunately, but in a good way though, I have to spend this movie night with my daughter and our movies for tonight are:

  1. A Monster in Paris
  2. Hansel & Gretel

There has to be Popcorn with extra butter, Sugar or any candy of your choice, Take Outthis is a must, and something bubbly {sodas for the kids}.

I think I will have to forget about my diet for today, hee.

Of course there has to be Love Letters! It’s heart’s day…. I can never let this day pass without a  love letter….

But let me try a different thing today. Instead of reciting How Do I love Thee, let me tell you the things/reasons why I love my husband.

What I do love About peanutbutter?

  • Well, first of all, He buys me chocolateLOL! lots of it. He doesn’t care whether I eat them all at once or daily until it runs out.
  • Kidding aside, He encouraged me to follow my passion in spite of the income we’d temporarily lose in order to make it happen. And the great thing about it is… we didn’t lose income.
  • I love him because He is a challenge. Seriously. He challenges everything and makes me think. He never take things as they are and is always always  willing to dig deeper and reach farther and  do more.
  • And because of that He forces me to grow. He forces me to grow spiritually, personally and intellectually. He ignites the passion in me for both life and love.
  • He has passion and drive. He is incredibly hard working for someone who always wants to sleep. I didn’t even know that  could happen. He is such a family man that he is willing to do everything for us.
  • He teaches me selflessness. That this marriage isn’t about me nor him — that it’s about US. That we are a team and we work together…. even if we are apart at the moment.
  • I can always talk to him and laugh with him. At night we talk and laugh about events that happened during the day. You can’t just do that with anyone. There’s this one person you can tell everything and laugh about everything. For me — it’s him.

I am thankful, daily, that God picked him for me.

We’ve made it through the first year of honeymooning, the third year of new parenthood… We’ve yet to conquer the seven year itch or the seven year of tough finances and the ninth year of health struggles.. but together, I believe we’ll get through each and every stage.


I hope YOU are reading this… I love you more than words can ever say.

Happy Valentines Day!

  1. I’m hopeful I’ll be as lucky and blessed. Happy Valentine’s Day to you sis Peach and your peanutbutter. 😉

    Again, so cute!! I love how you make every occasion truly special. 🙂

  2. this is a perfect idea! instead of going to the mall, which is usually jam-packed with people at this time, and endure the seemingly-endless lines, a movie date with my budding movie buff will be a perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s. will definitely do this next year, i just wish i had your creativity, sis! 😉

    happy Valentine’s to you + your beautiful family! ♥

  3. I will go for 4, 5, 6 in your list of movies, Love them. Happy valentine day to you. 

  4. Oh Darlin – what a great post!!!!  I’m sorry you’re not with your peanutbutter tonight, it’s easy to see he is definitely in your heart. It does sound like you and your daughter had a great night.  My sweetie and I work together and made an easy steak salad, watch a movie and munch on some chocolates he bought me and a chocolate pot that I made him. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and a little of your life.

  5. This is the sweetest and heart warming love letter.  🙂  I’m so happy that you’ve found the perfect partner in life.  Happy Valentine’s Day to you.  Have a fun movie night with your daughter.  

  6. hi peachy, how have you been, glad you came over..
    you must have had a fannhtastic romantic valentine- everyone has his/ her own special way.
    wishing you and your beloved hubby happy valentine for every day of the year

  7. Peachkins , you’re very creative and so sweet  ! I love your DIY Valentine’s thingies 😀 Peanutbutter’s  such a lucky man ;D 

  8. Watching movies together during Vday is indeed special. We also did the same thing especially when we couldn’t find a babysitter.  I think this is the best way to spend time together and also the cheapest way. By the way, i love those Vday knick knacks you got in there! 

  9. What a great idea! Love, love, love it. A lot of times we like to just stay home, eat, watching movies we like and be at home safe and sound and comfy. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this one. 🙂

  10. Awww…that’s very sweet you two 🙂 Well, of course the little one has to be part of your Valentine’s celebration. 🙂
    Well, I always believed that “Ang mabuting asawa ay hinihiling sa Diyos.”  Nasa Bible yan.  And I am very happy for you sis that you are married to the man of your dreams.

  11. same here, hubby and i don’t celebrate Valentine’s day. well, this year, he was not home, he was working, and so i just had my two other little boys for a Valentine’s day date (in the bed) story telling and playing. 

  12. weeee.. yeah. there are more reasons to celebrate Valentines at home. We just got to be creative and to watch chic flicks. Thanks for the list though! I have only watched The Notebook on the list.

  13. Pretty woman is my all time fave movie, – Richard Gere is so dashing – the man in my dreams ahaha. Kidding aside, Noi and I also choose to stay home every V-day, we can enjoy each others company with our kids too. I just prepare a special meal 🙂

  14. You and your peanutbutter are so cute and loving – you don’t need to go out or anything it’s not really a requirement as long love is there and you get to celebrate it on your own way and time regardless if its a Vday then its okay. 🙂

  15. Sweetness! I’m sure you’d have a lifetime’s worth of chocolates after peanutbutter reads this. Kakilig lang!

  16. Happy Valentine’s to you and your peanut butter! I love your idea of spending Vday at home. We usually spend Vday at home but nothing extra special like what you suggested happened from the past celebrations we had.

  17. very nice!! my husband and I always have our movie night everynight after I put my daughter in bed. It feels like valentines for us but horror movies though. I love all your romantci movies! will give them a try!

  18. Very nice and simple celebration. I love the Jerry Maguire and Ghost movies. 🙂 Always make me giggle when I see them.

  19. Happy Valentines Day to you and to your Peanut Butter. One of the romantic movies that I like is the 50 First Date. I can watch it over and over again.

  20. Another special occasion that made more special by your creativity. Thanks for reminding me to watch again The Notebook and Ghost. Those are two of my favorite classics.

  21. Having a movie night at home is a wonderful idea to celebrate Valentine’s Day! You’re also blessed to have a wonderful husband and daughter who make your Valentine’s Day extra special every year. Belated Happy Valentine’s Day, Mommy Peachy!

  22. This year’s Valentine’s Day is spent by us, my wife and I in going to a date together with my newly-wed son and his wife in a public plaza eating together in a finger-food kiosk selling Japanese delicacies.

  23. Passion and drive is important for me,too. It would be so frustrating to be with a man who has none of it.

    Enjoy your valentines, Peachy!

    P.S. Voted for you in the most influential blogs , hope you win!

  24. me and my pichi only celebrated the V-Day once outside, and that was when nililigawan pa niya ako. hehe.. I think this is a pretty awesome idea if you’re keen on making said day special, and the printables are just so cute! Can I borrow the printables too? I’ll use it for our upcoming anniversary this 18th 😀

  25. yay kinilig ako 🙂 yun lang di ako makarelate sa movies. parang pretty woman, notting hill at ghost lang alam ko. masimulan na nga panoorin yung iba 😀

  26. So sweet! Thanks for the movie suggestions! Will definitely watch one of those this v-day since the hubby doesn’t like to watch Fifty Shades hahaha!

  27. Aw, super sweet idea. You and your husband are lucky to have found each other… Crazy, Stupid, Love or The Notebook are great Movie picks! thanks for sharing!

  28. I love the printables. So cute 🙂 Will do this too since we’re staying over for V-Day. Not a fan of too many people too 🙂

  29. SOOOO creative! I love how special you’ve made your Valentines day with your loved ones.
    Just like you, we hate going out too and would rather stay home, in the comfort of each other’s arms and the kids of our kids 🙂 Thanks for sharing this sis.

  30. : so sweet! ^_^ same here, i think that those expensive fLowers are just a waste of money.. i prefer to receive foods or other stuffs that i can use for a Long time. ^_^
