I heart Valentine’s Day. Maybe that stems from going to the all-women’s college and not having a beau to celebrate with. But DETAILS. For me, Valentine’s is a day that I appreciate all of the lovely friends in my life. While people are off in restaurants in pairs…here are a few ideas of what you can do with your laayyydies:
- Be wholesome! Have a card marking party. Do you know the origins of Valentine’s was Saint Valentine cutting out his heart and sending it to his mistress that rejected him? His still beating heart was a token of his undying love. Don’t do that. Rather, party elementary school style. Pull out the doilies, paper, and Sweethearts and go to town! Think of friends or family that will appreciate a sweet handmade card sent via snail mail.My Heart Pants for You? I don't say that to friends much...but I just couldn't help putting it up
- Do a Girl Mixer! Email some of your single gals, and have them bring a fun, single friend of theirs! It is a great way to meet some new ladies around the area. Have everyone bring a ‘white elephant’ Valentines Day gift, and have an exchange. A cupcake from the Erotic Bakery or a bad Romance Novel would be so clutch for that.
- Round up the troops: He’s Just Not That Into You is playing. Come on, that’s just perfect. Make sure to fandango ahead of time!
- Grab your gals. Draw names a few days before Valentines. Whoever you draw, treat them as your Valentine. Send them flowers; bake them some cookies, whatevs. Extra points for sending them something at work and being their secret admirer for the day.
So there you have it. Live it up! Saint Valentine and his dead, beating heart would not want it any other way. If you have any Valentine’s ideas to add to the list…do tell.
