Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I know that I posted a picture this morning but I didn’t say much so I decided to tell you how I spent my Valentine’s Day.
Now with all the Valentine’s day promoting that I did, I know that you would think that I have a mate or someone special in my life…..think again lol. Valentine’s day has always been a crazy day for me and so again, today was no different. I received many requests to be someones valentine but nothing that I know for myself to be absolutely real.
Anyway, I spoke with one of my friends today and he asked my why my sweetheart didn’t take me out…..I told him that I’m single and plenty of guys asked to be my Valentine but no one wants to be a man. Why would you want to be with me for just one day? I need love and a lifetime of it so why should I tolerate YOU for one day?
So…needless to say, my Valentine’s Day was spent cleaning up and spending a little time with the true lil man in my life….my son. He started telling me Happy Valentine’s Day on Sunday and woke up this morning excited about the day. So I took that energy and did what needed to be done today.
So you waited until the last minute to get something for your boo for Valentine’s Day and now you either have no idea about what you want to buy them. Or maybe you don’t have the funds to buy anything. If the later is true, there are plenty of things that you can do with little to no money just to make your sweetheart feel special.
Everyone wants to feel special and when you are in a relationship, making your mate or partner feel special is key to longevity. Men and women like to know that they were thought about not just one day of the year but everyday.
Any gift given to your sweetheart should be very special and must be given a lot of thought. Perfume, wine, chocolates, flowers or maybe even a nice outfit are all good ideas for a man to surprise his lady with. Or he can make her a heartfelt gift such as a card, a piece of jewelry or a night in with dinner. Ladies, men like cologne, cufflings, clothes or maybe a get-a-way for just you and him.
If you want to go another route, Edible Arrangements may be for you!! They have beautiful arrangements that are edible and most definitely delicious! This idea will
Sweetheart Swizzle Bouquet $45
definitely earn you some points if you are in the doghouse or just want to let your mate know what’s on your mind. For as little as $25, you can get an arrangement for Valentine’s Day that will put a blush on her face.
Whatever you do….make sure that this gift is from the heart. Life is too short to not want to show the one you love that they are adored.
Today is February 2, 2012!!! Day two of the 14 days of love and it seems like the year is off to a fast start. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating New Years!
Anyway, Day One of Love should have been fairly simple, nothing too over the top. Maybe a Valentine’s Day card (handmade if possible) or a back or foot rub. Maybe you surprised your mate with both!! Either way don’t spend too much money on any gift at this stage because you want to lead up to that. The closer to Valentine’s Day, the more elaborate the gift.
Day Two should be simple as well. Maybe another card or fix a special dinner or even a love note in their things before they go to work. Remember, it’s the thought that counts and you them to know that they are very special to you.
