Any Ideas for Valentine's Day?

As far as I know, I have no plans for V-day. You? I have been trying to come up with something that's a little different this year, rather than the usual nice dinner out. I always love a good meal, but I'm in the mood to try something a little more creative this year so I've been racking my brain trying to think of something fun and romantic to do.

One year I decorated my bedroom to look almost like a bed and breakfast. I put streamers at the door, had heart garland hanging over my bed, candles every where, chocolate kisses, roses, ordered food in, etc.

I surprised hubby, then boyfriend, by letting him think that I had planned a nice dinner out. When he arrived to pick me up, "surprise!" He was hooked ever since (he, he).

That was years ago, no kids, no job, (no money). He remembers that V-day to this day. What can I do, what can I do?? I've got 24 hours to come up with something.

The great things is that I have all of you to help me out, right?? (that's me begging for ideas). What have you guys done in years past? What are you planning this year?

Sorry I don't have any good ideas but I think I'll come back to see if others do!

I just did a guest post on Savvy Source about this. Maybe it will give you ideas! http://tinyurl.com/firesburn

What a fabulous idea! I'm trying to think of a creative and fun way to celebrate V-day with the extra twist that I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant which pretty much rules out wine and spontaneity. Like Smiling Mama, I'll be back to see what others have posted.

I say do a rehash of days gone by. If you can get someone to watch the kids - stay in and have a romantic night.

how much do i love that b&b idea! of course i could never do that now - one of our children is bound to interrupt. i remember setting up an indoor picnic for hubby (when we were dating) and that was a lot of fun.

i'm fresh out of unique ideas. we're just going out to dinner. that's about all we old fogies can handle :)
