So my guy just found out that he has to work on V-day until 8:30. Meaning that he won’t be home until late and we won’t be able to go out. I truly do not want to cook on Valentine’s, but since there’s really no other option and he does love it when I cook for him, I need ideas.

I still live at home (we're in college), which makes things tricky as far as having a romantic evening in. My mom, undoubtedly will be in and out of the room, so it kind of kills any idea of romance.

I hate feeling so annoyed, but  I just feel like Valentine’s has just died a little. I know… I am terrible. Anyway, what can I do to make V-day at home still memorable and romantic??

He has requested steak for dinner and something chocolate for dessert. I’m not as concerned about that as the whole decorating and ambience…

Stupid work.

Thanks in advance. :-) I think I just need to chill out a little. grr.

I've never done it before but maybe you could do that restaurant delivery thing. I don't know what it's called, I hope you know what I'm referring to. There are websites, and I'm sure it's in the phone book. So you could avoid still avoid cooking.

I don't know if this would work for the room, but maybe you could pin some fabric or sheets to the ceiling so that you can have privacy while still letting your mom go through the room. It wouldn't look as stupid as it sounds if you have dinner by candlelight.

I think chocolate covered strawberries would be an easy dessert.

That sounds cute. However, I live in CT and they don't do restaurant delivery. Chinese food doesn't even deliver in my town! Crazy...

And we have cathedral ceilings, so fabric would be impossible.

Maybe I can find a way to bring a table up to my room...

If you can't bring a table up there has to be a way to make a temporary table.

Just go to a resturant and order some classy take out, bring it home and plate it up like you made it.

No Cooking
No Prep Mess
Romantic Evening at home
Sex RIGHT after dinner!  Cheesy j.k. maybe.

Why don't you have a romantic picnic in your room? Put down a pretty blanket, set the place settings, put a vase and lots of candles in the middle, and sit on pillows.

I'd rather die terrified than live forever.

buy your mom movie passes for the night as a valentines gift from you.  seems like a nice way to avoid the whole parent-presence thing.  Huh

but thie picnic idea is good too, that way it'd still be private.

Definitly a picnic, with a blanket and stuff in your room. Steak might be kind of annyoing to eat on the floor, tho.. so maybe a tiny table with some candles and a flower in the middle. Nice plates and such.

whatever you have for desert, cans of whipped cream may come in handy, makes it fun and kills any negative energy, definitly... or mayeb that's just me but idk. lol.

May the force be with you...

Chocolate dipped strawberries are SO EASY and WONDERFUL!

I would just reschedule. The 14th of Febuary is just another day. Valentine's Day is whenever you celebrate with your honey.
