Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up: Valentine’s Treats

Ah…Valentine’s Day. A day for sweethearts to express their love for one another. Sadly, like Christmas, this holiday has been so over-commercialized that too many of us feel like we have to meet some pretty high expectations to come out of this day unscathed.

I have never expected much from SSG Dizzy, except for the usual flowers (red and white…our first date/wedding colors) and chocolates (it feeds my addiction). I frown on expensive gifts like jewelry and the like because I am basically a simple girl. Besides, my husband spoils me rotten, so Valentine’s Day is like any other day of the year, only everyone celebrates, not just us.

I’ve always been a firm believer that we should take time to express our love and adoration for all those whom we care for. That’s why, I always include gifts for my children and friends on Valentine’s Day. And I have something for you, my dear reader.

I give you the gift of music, of course: My Funny Valentine – Michael Bublé. If you follow to the end of today’s Round-Up, you will find the rest of your gifts, just bear with me.

There’s a whole lotta love (and hatin’) goin’ on in today’s Ten Post Round-Up.
