  1. Thanks Penny Lavish! I am still recovering from the holiday over budget hangover (yes both physically and monetary) and was looking to do something special for my special someone. This blog has given me some great ideas for valentines! I’ll still be able to pay off my student loan this month and have a fulfilling valentines day with my girl. And she’s going to love it too because it will be more hands on, making things much more intimate:) Quality over Quantity! now if only i can find a site to pirate the new 50 shades of grey;)


    St. Valentine
