      I wasnt sure what to get him but I went on to 1-800-flowers.com and found something really cute!!! It's a huge fortune cookie with chocolate and sprinkles on it. You can custom make a message that they put in it. It comes in a clear take out container. How cute is that??? I thought it was adorable! I hope he likes it. I'll be happy with a box or chocolate and some..... ya know!

          I got him a fancy dinner on Saturday night, since we are going through my permanent Interstim this week and it is hectic, but he got food poisoning from it

          Other than that, because I am currently tied up to a cord and box, I find it hard to go shopping -- so nothing.

          It's a terrible Valentine's in the romance dept. -- but I'm sure when both of us are healthy again we will make up for it.

              We don't make a big deal out of Valentine's day but I usually get him some lingerie from Fredrick's of Hollywood. He always seems to enjoy that.

                We will probably go out for dinner. I bought him a box of sugar free turtles, he loves chocolates! Other than that, we usually don't do too much.

                  Yeah, leelee, I'll probably do the same thing - make him a card. I love doing that stuff anyway, and he's not really into store-bought cards etc, so I think that and some cookies and cupcakes will make him a happy camper, lol.

                    Well, we're getting married tomorrow down at the courthouse, so I guess that's a gift we're giving each other! Other than that, nothing much since we're going away for a few days next week.

                      Congrats to you, Poet, on getting married tomorrow! I hope you have a wonderful day!

                      I bought those little heart shaped pans that hold cupcakes, only I am making individual lasagnas, in them and the garlic bread will also be heart shaped. (For those ICers who cant eat lasagna, meatloaf could also be made in them.) Then, for dessert, red velvet cake, again in the heart shape. I am also tossing a salad.

                        Thank you! Hopefully we won't be on line forever with everyone else who decided Valentine's Day would be a perfect time to get married (we picked it partly because we had the time available in our schedule.)

                        The heart-shaped lasagna sounds great! Yum!

                            I like how everyone's giving gifts from the heart. My first Valentine's with my husband I got him a telescope. Other than that, I haven't given him many gifts for Valentines. I gave him a chocolate bar and cookies yesterday. He loved them and asked me to get him some more of the cookies to keep in his truck. I know he really wants some floor mats for his truck, but I didn't plan early enough to get those.
                            Last year, I made some creme brule for a dessert. The year before that I got him some root beer and candy. I made reservations at a nice restaurant for this year. I might surprise him with some DVDs, if I have time. I'd like to arrange a nice home movie night for the weekend. A gift certificate to Blockbuster and some licorice might be an idea.
                            My friend once drove her husband some Taco Bell for lunch and he couldn't have been happier. It's the thoughtful things like that, that will really stand out.
