Valentine's Day Activities

With Valentine's day quickly approaching, it seems that there are lots and lots of Valentine's crafts out there in the blogosphere. But I have to admit, I don't do any Valentine's day decorating (does that make me a bad crafter?). It's all I can do to get the Christmas decorations up each year! But I have come across a couple of Valentine's Day activities that I thought I'd share.

Wendy over at The Shabby Nest just celebrated her 15th anniversary. She surprised her husband by filling the room with 15 balloons and tied a picture from their wedding/engagement to each one and a little note with a reason why she loved him. I love this idea so much. It's so simple but it has so much meaning to it. This could easily be turned in to a surprise Valentine's Day treat for your sweetheart.

And some of you may have come across Tip Junkie's How to Date Your Spouse Challenge. It's based on the book 101 Nights of Grrreat Romance: Secret Sealed Seductions for Fun-Loving Couples. She's already on Week 3 of the challenge, but you could jump in anytime (you can catch up with Week 1 and Week 2). It seems like a fun, creative way to get out of that date night rut (or are we the only ones that struggle with that?). You could pick one of the weeks for a fun Valentine's date. The good thing is that you don't have to spend a lot of money and most of them you can even do after the kids go to bed!

I love these ideas because if you're anything like me, by the end of the day, you barely have enough energy to load the dishwasher and brush your teeth before bed, let alone have any time for your husband (significant other, etc...). So whether it's your anniversary, your hubby's birthday, or Valentine's Day, these are some fun ideas to reconnect with one another.

Do any of you have big Valentine's Day plans? I guess I better get planning so it doesn't sneak up on me!
