Lovey Dovey

I am  a day late and a dollar short, but I had this post almost nearly finished before my Valentine's Day got completely screwed up and I can't stand the thought of the time I took going to waste, so Imma publishing it anyway.

The Old School Blogging theme this month is Love/Valentine's!

Syrupy sweet.


This is how my husband describes romantic gestures. He's not one for PDA and hates the idea of forced romance. He's not much of a snuggler (we have a king size bed). Also, he thinks that women should be romantic too.

 Granted, it took some getting used to, but I have no doubt that my husband loves me. He shows me in so many other ways. And he has been known to buy me flowers, chocolates and a sappy card on occasion.

The Questions

How do you typically celebrate Valentine's Day? Usually we try to do something nicer than usual for dinner, whether it's going out (just us or as a family) or choosing something special to have at home. Maybe something for dessert too. This year we are having steak and baked potatoes which we are NOT sharing with the kids! (A day late.)

Do you like to get A) chocolates B) flowers  C) a sweet card or D) ALL OF THE ABOVE? I love flowers, but since we've never had a large home, I often feel like they're just in the way. And then they die. I like chocolate and I like sweet cards. I like wine, good food and a good movie more.

Would you consider yourself a “cuddler”?  If not, would you at least cuddle on Valentine’s Day? I am a cuddler, but like I already said, Mark is not. He likes to a little bit, but mostly he just likes being near me. I get my cuddles from my kids and my kitty, though.

What is your favorite movie about love or with a love story? Well, I mean, The Princess Bride for sure. I love When Harry Met Sally and Love, Actually too. The biggest romantic tear-jerker? P.S. I Love You, hands down.

Do you believe in “love at first sight”? Did it happen to you? I don't know if it was love at first sight, but I was immediately drawn to, and intrigued by, Mark when I met him. I absolutely believe in love at first sight when it comes to our children.

Do you believe love can conquer all things? I think I do, but not necessarily romantic love. Just LOVE in general.

What is one of the main things you love about your S.O.(significant other)? I wrote a whole list of things once. One of the biggest things, though, is his fortitude.

Tell me about your first crush! My VERY first crush -- we're talking elementary school here -- was this cute blond-haired, blue-eyed, freckle-faced kid named Kevin. I just thought he was so adorable. We once sat in the "love tunnel" on the school playground and our little friends dared us to kiss. We were too chicken.

Do you have any embarrassing or horror dating stories? I didn't really "date" much. I met guys through school or a mutual friend and we just hung out and become a couple, I guess. I can't think of anything horrible that ever happened.

Favorite flower? Rose.

What’s the first type of chocolate you hope for when you reach into a box of chocolates? Caramel or coconut.

Favorite love song? Our song is "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin, and it really is a very nice love song. I chose Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me" as our wedding dance song. I say "I chose" because Mark hates Celine Dion and only went along with it because of the lyrics.

What is the best breakup song? Pretty much the entire "Jagged Little Pill" album by Alanis Morissette, and "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson. Not really a breakup song, but "U + Ur Hand" by Pink is a great "leave me alone, guys" song.

Favorite celebrity couple? Wills & Kate!

Overall, are you pro- or anti- Valentine’s Day? Oh, it just IS. I could do without it, especially now that I also have a wedding anniversary. And when you're single, it makes you feel lonely. So....it's kinda nice, but also kind of a pain.

If someone did that “Say Anything” boom box thing outside your window, would you be into it, or call the police? I'd totally be into it!

First thing you notice about the objects of your affection? I don't entirely understand this question, but I'm taking it to mean, what stands out to me about the people I love. And that's just that they're in my life and how much they fill me up, and how I get something different from each person.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten for Valentine’s Day? Jewelry!
