Thanks for the information...sounds like you have done a lot of great things!

How about making your dining area look like an italian restaurant? The tablecloth, candlelight, etc...and then making him lasagna (one dish dinner) and tirimisu for dessert? Also for a gift has he ever been to a gran prix event? Why not get him a certificate to drive or sit in while some else drives a race car?

Brian likes computer games. Pretty much that's what all of his time is spent with. Other than that he likes fast cars (he owns a Grand Prix GXP) and Italian food. Other than Italian, he pretty much likes "simple," no-nonsense foods.

In the past, I've sent him on scavenger hunts throughout our region (with the end being a hotel room decorated with roses and candles), I've floated messages in a bottle in the bathtub, I've done strip-teases, etc.

We are going to be in a dance showcase on Valentines Day.

We always liked walking through the zoo, etc.

I don't like to eat out on Valentine's because things are so crowded. So I like to do lasagna, since I can put it together ahead of time. I've also done finger foods - wine, cheese, fresh fruit, chocolate in front of the fire.

I know it may sound silly but... our dd is spending the night at a friends house and I am making Dale a nice dinner which I plan to feed him while he is soaking in the bathtub with rose petals floating on the top and candle all around. I am making my chocolate log for dessert as it contains nothing but chocolate wafer cookies and lots of homemade whipping cream. He usually does the bathtub thing for me but not this year.

Great! Can you tell me some of the things he likes? Activies, hobbies, what types of food? Also what have you done already that he has liked?

Brian and I have been married 6.5 years or so, no kids. I am obsessed with the romantic side of things, Brian not so much. I'm in my mid 20s, he's in early 30's. We just bought our first house last July.......what else would you like to know?

Thanks for your willingness to help!

How about having a picnic indoors? Candlelit with a picnic blanket spread out...also if you make your own dessert...i have made these chocolate cups using those paper cupcake cups and filled them with fruit and whipped cream...it was yummy!

I know that Greg wants to go to a banquet they are doing at church but I don't know how I will feel by then so that's why I was thinking of just the two of us.

So far, our plans are limited to a romantic dinner at Louie's Italian on Friday, the 13th. (NOT superstitious!) emoticon

I would like to do something as well but never do. This year at least we should know what we are going to have baby wise ao maybe that will give us an excuse to do something.

I usually run under the impression that it's never to early to start planning for Valentine's Day, but this year has been a bit rough as I have been battling all sorts of things over the past several years. Nevertheless, I'm determined to make this year's V Day special, so I thought I'd poll our group.

Do you have any tried-and-true traditions? Any creative ideas? What do you plan to do this year?
