Although I have 4 different dudes asking to be my Valentine and trying to line things up for the evening, I made sure to take care of myself first so that I don't have to be dependent on some dude to make anything happen for me or piss me off and take me off of my LOVE square. Here are a few things I've accomplished or plan to do in the interest of LOVE and any of you that fit in the above category should try one or all of the below:
1) Vday themed nails - you honeeyz should know by now that my nails are my personal art canvas and I figured love should be on display. Together they ready Love Lee as in "Love, Lee"or "lovely!" Loves it!! You can do the same with your attire or accessories. It does the trick. I look at my nails and have to think love! I don't even have a choice.
More ways to spoil yourself and get into the Vday mood with or without a significant other:
3) Vday dinner and wine- I can take myself out or treat myself and I don't have to worry about what the other person likes or doesn't like. It's all me! My choice, shrimp scampi. The red tomatoes scream LOVE!! Lol.
|My world famous shrimp scampi with wheat pasta and a LARGE glass of Moscato! Feet up and relaxed watching my favorite movies with my p retty little gifts right by my side. Perfection!!!|
|Sautee the shrimp in olive oil until done|
|Add scallions and sautee in same pan|
|Add petite diced tomatoes|
|Add lemon, white wine, cheese and basil|
|The original recipe calls for Parmesan cheese |
but I prefer goat cheese!
4) Romantic Movies -my choice always starts with Love Jones. Any excuse to watch this movie is good enough. I can't tell u how many times I've seen it or how much I love it but it puts me in such a mood. For me, it represents love so authentic. When u can't keep your hands off each other, when you can't stand the sight of each other and when you realize you can't even function without each other. That kinda love.
|All time favorite romances that stay in heavy rotation, especially in February: Love Jones, Boomerang, Love & Basketball, and Mo' Better Blues (Mo better makes it mo better!!). Your guaranteed to laugh, love hard and maybe cry a little with this line up!|
