It's that day again -- the time when over 14,000 people will rush to Las Vegas, NV and get married in one of those cute little chapels that line the strip! Some last only 2 days, some last forever! How it starts out is hardly the issue, it's how you handle your life that matters in the long run.
But Valentine's Day is certainly the time of year that have most men scrambling to buy their loved one roses, chocolate candy, bouquets of flowers, orchids, fancy nighties, and take them out for a fancy dinner.
I guess I'm an oddball because going out on Valentine's Day is somewhat akin to going out on New Year's Eve -- that's another time I prefer to stay home! The restaurants raise their prices, it's crowded, there is a lot of pressure on the guys to come up with something wonderful -- the list goes on and on. So for me, I'm still a big believer in the stay-at-home meal, grilling a steak, perhaps enjoying a forbidden dessert!
Remember those holiday dinners can come very high in calories! Here's a new one of me -- see how slim I'm getting?
