Stores busy with last-minute Valentine's shoppers

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

It's a popular day for roses. Valentine's Day isn't for the faint of heart. That's because some folks are doing a lot of last minute shopping.

Adrian Becerra is one of the shoppers we found getting something last minute, for his wife Yvonne.

"She told me not to do it but I don't always listen to her," he says.

"I've been planning this for like a week so I have a bunch of stuff in the car too," says Ben Holguin. "I'm going to go surprise her right now, take it to her work"

Roses, roses, and more roses.

"I got her two dozen roses this morning, get her two more right now," says Demetrius Smith. "She's a great woman."

"Every year is slightly different. I've been married for 2 years, last year I bought 200 balloons so this year its 4 dozen roses for now."

For now means Smith could add something new to the mix before the end of the day. Fun, creative, and these guys say it's all worth it.

"The element of surprise. It's the best to see her overwhelmed, shocked, that's what I do it for," says Holguin.

    Dance raves for kids at NYC's hot clubs

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
