    How do I put this politely.......I am not looking to bring a bunch of extra calories in the house, don't want to double my investment if you know what I mean!

    Well my goodness, you fellows are such romantics!

    That being said, I do have to recall that for our first Valentine's day we were married, Mr. Firebroad bought me a heart-shaped cake with pink frosting and coconut. He then spent the next 22 years remarking about my butt-size...;lol

    Wife went out shopping today. I asked her if she got me a card. Yes she did. I asked her if she picked up a card for me to give her. No. Oh crap it all.

    Soooo, after work today I am at the local Pharm standing there with about 6 other guys going over the stacks of cards. Another guy walks up and says "I'm in trouble". I said "No your not. Get in here and help us look for a good card." Funny how it was mostly guys looking for cards at the last minute. I dunno why.

    AP- awesome Cheevers mask.

    How to give a card, By Danno:
    1. Go to any store with cards
    2. Find the appropriate occasion (birthday/anniversary/sorry/love, etc)
    3. Pick out something with a beautiful cover (subjective, but look for flowers or sunsets) usually photos done through a filter that makes them fuzzy looking will work
    4. Make sure there is some saying about love, happiness, or something that sounds mushy. no need to read it all, though, if it's cursive or script print, it will do
    5. Underline any nice sounding adjective you see. No need to really read the whole sentence. She will assume you picked this card out and that you truly feel it applies to her or your relationship. Extra points for underlining a whole sentence (or line of a poem)
    6. Write "Love Forever" and your name at the bottom.
    7. No need to label outside, even if you mix up your girlfriend's card with your wife's they'll never know.
    8. When she is opening it say "I know this one is a little corny, but it made me think of you"

    Follow up for the other gender.

    How to give a card (for Ladies), By Danno:
    1. Go to any store with cards
    2. Find the appropriate occasion (birthday/anniversary/sorry/love, etc)
    3. Look as long as you need for a funny card (we know you'll take forever)
    4. Memorize the joke in the card. note cost of card
    5. Go to wrapping paper/gift bag isle. note cost of wrapping paper
    6. Go buy their present and spend $10 more on the present than you originally budgeted.
    7. Give present in the store bag and tell them you found a funny card (recite joke) and tell them you spent more on the present by not wrapping it.
    8. Give them a hug pressing your chest against them. (note: hug not necessary here, but considered acceptable while pressing your chest against them)

    Mrs JH baked me a chocolate tart that was about the densest most rib sticking chocolatiest (is that a word?) thing I ever ate in my life. And got me a bunch of fancy sweets.

    I got her some roses and made fettuccine carbonara for dinner (using a new recipe from Cooks Illustrated we found... OMG was it good). We lite the fireplace and had a nice bottle of wine.

    And we made the kids mini strawberry ice cream sundaes. The loved it (they are both two ;) )
