Sweets for your sweet

Hey! I've got some freebies and deals and one indulgence for ya'll. (Isn't that what it's all really about anyway, lol?)

First, for those with a sweet-tooth, and those who really know the way to a woman's heart, I've got some Valentine Treats recipes for you:

For the singles out there:


On The Journey From Boo-Hoo to Woo-Hoo!
a free teleseminar by Lisa Steadman aka "The Relationship Journalist"!


For the clueless gift-givers:

Red Door Spa Packages okay, this is more of an indulgence than anything else, but hey! we all want a little luxurious pampering once in a while... try the Red Door Debut which includes the Elizabeth Arden Essential Facial, Customized Eye Contour, Swedish Massage, Warm Cream Manicure & Makeup Refresher. Less expensive than jewelry and much, much better than flowers!


For the budget minded:

For the kidlings:


Printable V-Day cards from Signing Time

Sweet crafts from Kaboose

Fisher Price's I Love My Family baby board book available at Harper Collins.


For the Digi-Scrappers:


DigiScrap Depot features hundreds of Valentine themed freebies for your own (personal, not commercial) projects.


For the Funny Valentine:


I love Jib-Jab. (Do you remember the Elf Yourself videos? Hoo, hoo, ha! Ahhhh.) They've got some great V-Day themed video e-cards ready for you & your sweetie or your Valentine-Hater to be a part of. (Definitely do this one.)


For Yo Momma:


Maid Service by the Merry Maids. Okay, I'm making joke here, but it's a pretty loving gift.

Love on a Dime necklace

For the Locals: (That's B'more, Baby!)

The National Aquarium is just $8 on Friday afternoon. (Cheap, and you can beat the crowd!) You should definitely snuggle up near the sharks, oooh, sexy!

Mimi Di Pietro Family Skating Center
in Patterson Park. Nothing says romance like $4 for admission and $2 for skate rental! No, really. It's even better if neither of you actually knows how to ice skate. Think laughter, near-falls, and steaming hot cocoa when you're all done.

Valentine's Dinner Around The World at the Bliss Coffee & Wine Bar featuring A Night in France, An Evening in Italy, Spanish Nights, and The Dream - American Inspired.

For artsy, historically-inclined and Christian types, (or all three!) The Walter's Art Museum presents Illuminating the Bible featuring world-renowned scholar, Dr. Christopher deHamel.

Be a Chef For The Day at Sotto Sopra. (Probably not on V-Day, but still a pretty darn cool gift!)

Drew Grass Jazz Center for the Arts Recital Hall, Towson University on Friday at 8:15p Free jazz concert by a local boy made good along with students from the jazz program.


Toby's Dinner Theater in Baltimore is showing Sophisticated Ladies. You may still be able to grab a pair of tickets. It's an incredible show, and the foods pretty good, too!


Now if I haven't given you enough, I understand...no, actually I don't! That's plenty, people. Now get out there and do something romantic. It's only once a year!
