Yay! Valentine's Day!

Boy, is this year's Valentine's Day better than last year's! (If you don't remember, I'll let you go re-cap that for yourself. I'll skip linking to last February's archive...) It's nice to be happy instead of bitter and angry. It's refreshing. Ok, now I'm rambling.

At first, CN wanted today to be all about me. To quote him: "No! Valentine's Day is supposed to be all about the girl!" -- Reason #271 why I am dating him. And although I like this concept a LOT, and had very little argument against this idea, I told him that I wanted to do something for him, too.

So tonight, I am going to make him dinner. Here is the menu:

*Spring mix salad with cherry tomatoes, bacon bits, mushrooms and Esperanza dressing
*Filet mignon, marinated in mustard, balsamic vinegar, pepper, rosemary and some other stuff, then topped with carmelized onions and bleu cheese crumbles
*Garlic mashed potatoes
*Steamed broccoli
*Low-fat chocolate cheesecake with whipped topping

MMMMMMM!!!! I will put the recipes on my cooking blog tomorrow. I don't have time to do it today.

After dinner, I have a couple of little surprises for him. Although, maybe I will save them for tomorrow night.....I dunno. I will play it by ear. We might eat too much and just lay around and watch tv. Yeah, we are exciting like that.

Tomorrow night, CN is taking me out for V-Day. I have no idea where or when or what to wear. Hmm. I'd better ask him for a few details...he won't tell me anything. "It's a surprise." is all he will say. Eeek! I am excited.

CN's parents sent me a super-sweet V-Day card today. Aw. They are so nice. It's good to know I make the cut, so to speak.

How is your Valentine's Day going? I hope it's as good as mine. Ack! I gotta go. I have a lot of cooking to do!

Happy Valentine's Day! Dinner in tonight is smart---restaurants won't be crawling with people (as much) tomorrow.

The list is up to 271 reasons now, huh?

When will you start posting this list?

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm sure your dinner turned out fabulously! Can't wait to hear what CN gifted to you.

Mine was pretty hum-drum. Myspace comments and e-cards were exchanged. I gave a rose and a card to my female staff members. Like yours, my last V-day sucked, so this one was an improvement even if I didn't really have someone to spend it with. I made filet mignon for V-day one year. It was a pain, but it did score me some points.

"Valentine's Day is supposed to be all about the girl!"
Someone really needs to stop this CN menace before women start expecting such gallant behavior. He's like Jesus, bringing chivalry back from the dead. Disgusting. :)

Figured I would throw in a plug for Malentines Day...

Hey, that recipe sounds yummy!

I'm home sick from work today. I had a pretty fun yet unfun V-day myself.

My V-day sucked big time. But I'm happy to see your blog is one only "CN is soooo great" ;)

I like the idea of telling a girl all day long about a big surprise you're planning, dropping hints about reservations and packages being ordered, maybe "accidentally" leave an internet window showing expensive jewelry in an online shopping cart. When the big day comes, you give her a big, elaborately-wrapped box...with nothing in it. Follow the big unveiling by saying, "Well, aren't you surprised?"

Maybe it would work better as an April Fool's joke.
