What are you doing for Valentines?

Valentine's.....a day for love and romance. This past week I have been wondering what my husband was going to do for me for the big V-Day. He keeps telling me that "It is in the works." When asked exactly what that meant he said, "I'm still working on it." Not a very good answer. Why do guys wait till the last minute to plan everything? Being a planner, it absolutely drives me insane. So as I was becoming more frustrated that my husband (like most) wait till the last minute...I have decided to take things into my own hands. Why should the man always be responsible for sweeping us ladies off of their feet? I'm going to release the hubby from all of his V-day "responsibilities" this year and make my own plans.

I think that a sunset picnic dinner will be perfect for this Valentine's. With the 60 degree weather that is sweeping across the south, we might as well take advantage of it and be outside. If you are wanting to do a picnic basket dinner, make sure the following is not forgotten:

-The food of course!
-A bottle of wine, champagne or sparkling grape juice
-A wine opener
-Glasses, plates, and silverware
-A blanket to sit on
-Love poems to read to one another (okay that my be a little cheesy, but it's Valentine's..anything cheesy goes!)
