I do appreciate it when a holiday or event can inspire a Ten on Tuesday topic and that’s why today’s topic is 10 Fun Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day. Ready?
- Bake heart shaped cookies and frost them. If you don’t like baking cookies then
- Bake brownies and cut them into heart shapes with a cookie cutter. To make them extra special you can
- Dip them (or anything else that holds still long enough) in chocolate and add sprinkles.
- Make homemade Valentine’s Day cards. This is way better than buying one at the store. It’s cheaper, too. If you don’t want to buy or make a card then just
- Tell someone you love them. It doesn’t have to be a romantic love, either, because love is love.
- Wear red! My favorite is red shoes but I don’t have any right now. I do plan on wearing those socks from Monday’s post, though, when I
- Cook something special for dinner. I’m not a fan of going out on Valentine’s Day as the restaurants are overcrowded and overpriced. It doesn’t have to be fancy, either. The thing Dale loves the most, quite frankly, is a cheeseburger. After dinner it’s always fun to
- Watch a romantic movie and those brownies and cookies.
- Or watch a scary movie and bury your head in your partner’s shoulder when the parts you can’t bear to watch come on.
- Take a photo of someone you love. Save it and gaze at it and remember the moment.
Cheesy stuff, right? At least I didn’t put anything on here about buying roses!
what a sweet list. I especially love #10… must do that this year!
Love is sort of cheesy. . . when you get right down to it! Happy Valentine’s Day, Carole. Have fun wearing your socks . . . maybe while you’re shopping for new red shoes??? XOXO
Dude! You need red shoes to wear with the socks! Cheesy is what’s happening!

We also buy each other flowers and chocolates.
Hope you survived the snowstorm ok.
A couple years ago I made hubby homemade cheezits … those were a huge hit. Have to come up with something good to make for him this year – might go with the frosted brownies, he loves him some brownies!

There is nothing wrong with cheesy. I have done chocolate dipped ice cream sandwiches. They were a bit over the top!
Love the cheese! I think Valentine’s Day is a great reason for the hokiest romantic stuff you can think of! Enjoy!

I’m definitely with you on not going out for Valentine’s Day for dinner. I love that you didn’t include roses, though I’m surprised you didn’t suggest tulips 🙂
That’s a really sweet list. A little cheesy but then, so is V-day when you get right down to it. What I really love is the sprinkles in that picture. Too cute.
Love your list! Might have to try those brownies…I think I have a low-fat recipe, and the sprinkles don’t have to be heavy….
Okay, you got me with number 10.

Awww, what a sweet list.
Great ideas! Neal & I always exchange home made valentines. It is so much fun to see what he creates!

I didn’t see anythng about cheese–only chocolate 😉
All fabulous suggestions. I might just do a bunch of ’em.
Another terrific list and a fun format as well! It’s Party-Palooza in my classroom. We’ve got Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, and my birthday. I’ve planned something fun for each day of the week.
