LOVE!!!!!



Super Bowl is over and the next February food frenzy is Valentine's Day. Whether it's dinner at a romantic restaurant, chocolates or a bottle of bubbly and fondue at home, romantics everywhere know this is the time of year when there are no excuses if you forget February 14th. Now just because Valentine's Day falls on a Monday this year, you've got the entire weekend to get your romance on. You see, like it or not and try as some may, there are still certain rules that apply to this particular date. Valentine's Day is your chance to make up for any and all errs of the heart you made the previous year. Make her feel special all over again. Tell her and show her that she is indeed the most beautiful and desirable woman in all the world and you simply can't live without her. WHEW!!! That's a tall order, huh? Collect yourself and read on.....
One of the most important rules of romance is that if you are going to get flowers for your beloved, remember it is the coup de grace if you send them to her place of work so she can have that moment of girlish glory among her peers, proving that she does indeed have someone who loves her enough to send her overpriced flowers. Think of it like this...it's kind of like why guys drive those big ole trucks with those ridiculously huge tires. You know they do it for their buddies to appreciate. And maybe to make up for what they may lack in other areas. It can't be easy jumping up into that big ole thing and those knobby tires have got to be tough on the tush. It's all about the show...you know... it's human nature wanting to show off a little. Now, you could get by with bringing some flowers and a box of candy home on that day...but there's nothing like that big swell of emotion that every girl gets when she sees the top of a big bouquet passing thru the office. Us girls would be lying if we didn't admit that we all get a certain feeling in our stomach and that we hope those flowers land in front of us. It makes you, the thoughtful, romantic boyfriend, husband or lover (or as in Geraldo's- case, all 3!) the most desirable man on the planet . And just so you gals know it, it's perfectly alright to take your flowers home and share them with that marvelous man who thought enough of you to take the time to make a call or two to make sure your day was special. You can leave them on your desk at work, certainly, but it is nice that the man who footed the bill gets a chance to see how his dollars stacked up. Take a few out and put them in a bud vase for your desk. That way you can be reminded each day (hopefully for at least a week) at home and at work, that you are indeed....adored. You may get lucky and get held up at a stop light and the folks in the car next to you will spot your flowers or balloons and know that you are very special to someone and that their better-half had better have something valentine-y for them when they get home. And yes, balloons work, too. Just make sure you get an embarrassing amount that will make a statement.
There's not a thing wrong dropping by the corner market for your sweetie's flowers. Just try not to get stuck buying the cellophane wrapped spring bouquet that has already "sprung." Pick out something that's fresh 'cause a bunch of wilted flowers says, deadbeat and you didn't care enough to send the very best. Crappy flowers are all that's left? Well then you're better off with helium balloons, a very mushy card and a big, BIG heart-shaped box of some fine chocolates. Having said that.... let me add that there are some great floral options available if you decide to pick up something on your own to bring home to the missus. Many of the large grocery chains have a great selection of many different flowers that you can pick and choose from to make your own clever creation. With the right touch, any proper suitor can pull this off. First of all, buy the kind of flowers your sweetie likes. Don't buy roses just because they're everywhere this time of year. I used to not be such a big fan of roses...seemed overpriced and didn't last very a long if you asked me, but since I've been growing them in my home garden for a few years I have truly learned to appreciate just how beautiful and special they are. Just make sure you put some thought into it. Any flowers you give her are going to say more to her than any words you could ever come up with. NOT getting her flowers will also say more to her than you could ever apologize for!! If your girl likes sunflowers, then make it sunflowers. If it's carnations or daisies well, you get the picture. You can't go wrong with a beautiful spring bouquet. This time of year we are all looking for some signs of spring. Especially with this freaky winter with all the cold and snow. The love potion here is the thought you put into it. If you purchase them yourself, put the flowers in a pretty vase (not one from home this is the time to spring for a new one and they will be located right there in the floral department) and tie a little bow or some pretty raffia around it to spruce it up a little. (Ok, look up raffia in your online dictionary...I'll wait.) You could also wrap the flowers in floral paper and give them that "Florist Bought" look. There's really nothing wrong with taking flowers to your special valentine, but really if your valentine works with other valentines...the delivery at the ole place of work still garners the biggest smiles. Along with some chocolate a nice romantic card and maybe a cutsie teddy bear for those girls who still like their "toys." Teddy bears aren't really my thing....now my "Toys" are geared more for the big girls...if you know what I mean. Those are fun to get, too!!
Have fun! After all, this is the time we all get the chance to be silly in love and say and do goofy things. Most of all, turn on the romantic in you and let the love of your life know how very much she (or he) is loved.
