It’s been a week since Valentine’s Day, but I thought I’d share our Valentine’s date at Waffle House.
Clay and I don’t make big plans for Valentine’s Day. Both of us feel it’s an overly commercialized holiday and that you should express love spontaneously, not necessarily when the greeting card companies suggest it.
Plus, we live in Charleston and we are kid-free, so we can go out to fancier restaurants anytime we want- including nights that are more convenient for us and when those restaurants are not packed with other couples.
We went to Waffle House for Valentine’s Day last year and had a great time, so we wanted to do it again. Last year, the John’s Island Waffle House treated us to a pink waffle with whipped cream and even put music on the jukebox for us. They did not do either of those things this year, which was a bit disappointing and would have improved our experience. Oh well.
For Valentine’s Day, you’re supposed to make a reservation, which I did several days before (there was no big crowd so we had no trouble getting a reservation!). Our Waffle House decorated and lit a candle on the table, and the food was typical Waffle House greasy deliciousness (I had a blueberry waffle and scrambled eggs).
Clay’s happy he married an easygoing lady like me who doesn’t want super fancy things for holidays, and I’m happy he plays along with my typical goofiness. We love our little nontraditional traditions like this one and getting ice cream on our anniversary!
Do you and your significant other (or family) have crazy traditions? If so, what?
