I hope today brings you all the romance and happiness you can handle.  Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the day.  Head on over to The Killer Chicks to find out why.

What I'm looking forward to is tomorrow - when all the unbought candy goes on sale 1/2 price.  Sad, I know.  I should probably follow Janet's example and break off my love affair with food.  But not yet.  As bad as it all is for me, I do love it so.

How about you?  Happy to see Valentine's Day arrive?  What are your plans for today?  Spending it with your special someone, or curling up with a box of chocolates by yourself?  Or is this just another day for you?


  1. We don't usually do anything for Valentine's Day (overhyped drivel imho) but last night we went to see Straight No Chaser, so I'm calling it the best V-Day ever.

    Thanks for the reminder to look for 1/2 price conversation hearts tomorrow!

  2. Just another day - and, yeah, we do the 1/2 price buying, too -usually chocolates, but JB's mention of conversation hearts reminds me how much I love those - and, really, isn't that what Valentine Day is all about, The Love?!?!

  3. Too many family birthdays in February to actually celebrate Valentine's Day, but I do plan on having dinner with my husband. As for 1/2 price candy - I avoid the stores. My will power is low enough, I don't need that kind of temptation.

  4. We exchange cards and I've heard the rumor that there is a Starbucks GC in mine. :)

    The day was never huge for me but at the same time, my dad always sent me one red rose bud to celebrate--which meant a lot when I was between boyfriends. He continued it even after Lawyer Guy and I married. I miss him. I think I need some chocolate... ;)

  5. Eh, Valentine's day is a bit of an artificial holiday. Love needs to be shown on all days, not just this one.

  6. I like V Day, but it's definitely the perfect example of an over-commercialized holiday. It's kind of fun to have a day dedicated to love, but I wish it was less cheesy and more universal instead of romantic.
