Valentine’s Day – name that tune

A few years back we were invited as a family over to our friends home for Valentine’s night. I loved that night for so many reasons:
– we didn’t have to try to find a babysitter to go out
– we celebrated Valentine’s night as a couple a few nights before, avoiding the dreaded unromantic overcrowded lobby (yuck!)
– we got to be with family friends and the kids had a blast

For an activity, we played a game of Name That Tune with all songs that have the word LOVE in the title. I searched our itunes and tried to pick the songs that were most well known.

FEB. 14th is on a Sunday this year, and I’m thinking this would be a great night to play it again. Here is the (random)playlist to give you an idea of some of the songs I included. I’m all over the map when it comes to music.

Love play list for a Name That Tune Valentines Day game - every song has the word love in it -

ps. Maybe I’ll add a little Juice Newton to the mix.biggrin

    Cute! BTW, your Thrifty Thursdays have really inspired me. I've started hanging out at Goodwill after I drop off my daughter for ballet….and while my son is at cub scouts….I've scouted out all the Goodwill stores in a 10 mile radius of my home…..and I figured out how to make apothecary jars from stuff I found there!!!!!! I'm going to post a tutorial on my blog today. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Super cute idea! We always try to go a different night too. The restaurant/babysitter thing is just too hard. Plus, it's fun to celebrate with the kiddos. I have a Valentines Card giveaway going if you'd like to join!!!

    I hate going out on Valentine's Day, just because everyone else is going out. Kind of bugs. I'm thinking I may go pick up Cheesecake Factory and eat it at home in our pjs with a good movie.
