Celebrate: Valentines & Freebies

This week I'm celebrating:
1) I'm caught up on critiques for my CPs. Yay! Plus, I got a bunch of very helpful feedback and did some revising. Revising always makes me feel good because I know the book's improving!
2) I had lunch with a friend at a new restaurant this week.  The food wasn't very good -- she had chicken curry and I had Mexican chicken, which bore zero resemblance to anything Mexican; it tasted like it was in a Chinese sweet and sour sauce.  We won't go back, but it's always fun to spend time with friends!
3) Valentine's Day is on Saturday.  Hubby usually gets me something nice, like chocolate or a little gift.  Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

Are you going to give or receive something for Valentine's Day?  Do you have any special plans to celebrate it?

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom
