How to: Last minute Valentines

So you woke up and realized that its Valentine's day.  Regardless of what you think of the holiday saying a little extra "I love you" to your sweetie never hurts.  Also, some of us just love a good theme.

Here are some last minute options... no one will ever know that you just remembered this morning.

using post-it notes create a heart, and write something you love about the other person on each one.  (I did a small on on our fridge!)

You can get creative, check the local newspaper for concerts coming out and clip it, there you go thats date #1.  Maybe include a menu (can be found online) of a new place you want to go together, thats date #2.  You could also include a momento of a previous outing like that pressed penny you made down on the waterfront, thats date #3.  I could go on, you could also make the box for "a month of dates".  Thanks Babes Ruth for the inspiration.

I'll admit, I don't have a heart cup cake tin, but I can still make heart cupcakes thanks to this great idea from Tastes Better From Scratch.

Strips of paper and a stapler, there you go - heart garland.  You can also do it in other colors, metallic would be fun!
