How do you typically celebrate Valentine’s Day?
We typically don't celebrate. Of course, I do the class parties at the kids' school and I might wear red, but otherwise, it's just an ordinary day.
Do you like to get A)chocolates B) flowers C) a sweet card or D) ALL OF THE ABOVE? C - chocolates will get eaten and I kill plants/flowers. A card with a sweet message is something I can hold onto.
Would you consider yourself a “cuddler”? If not, would you at least cuddle on Valentine’s Day? It just depends on my mood. I like to snuggle with my hubby in the evenings when all is quiet and calm.
What is your favorite movie about love or with a love story? Hmmmm . . My favorite movie ever is One Fine Day with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer. Their characters start out hating each other, but of course, by the end of this fine day they have fallen in love.
I also love the movie Hope Floats.
Do you believe in “love at first sight”? Did it happen to you? I believe that love at first sight could happen, but it hasn't happened to me. When I first met my husband, he was not exactly sober and I was not impressed! :-) My friends secretly gave him my number.
Do you believe love can conquer all things? I don't believe love can conquer all things. If it could, there would be no cancer or war or famine. However, love certainly makes the tough times more bearable.
What is one of the main things you love about your S.O.(significant other)? I love that he makes me laugh. I tend to be a little high strung. I over analyze; I worry. He has a way of lightening the mood and making me smile even when I don't really want to.
If you could have the perfect Valentine date what would you and your loved one do? Anytime we get to go out without the kids is nice. We usually just go to dinner, but it would be really great to go away somewhere.
Tell me about your first crush! I don't even remember! Probably the New Kids on the Block! (Don't judge!)
Do you have any embarrassing or horror dating stories? I met my husband when I was 19, so I didn't date a lot of other people. There was one guy in college, though. I hoped he would ask me out and he finally did. He picked me up in his crazy, jacked-up truck (which I didn't know he had) and took me to see a terrible movie. That was it. No dinner or anything. Since we were in a movie, there was also very little conversation. He didn't ask me out again and I was just fine with that!
Favorite flower? I like tulips and lilies.
What’s the first type of chocolate you hope for when you reach into a box of chocolates? Milk chocolate with a caramel center. Yum!
Favorite love song? There are so many good ones. The first one that comes to mind is this one:
What is the best breakup song? Again, "best" is hard because there are so many. Here's one I like (also by Lady A):
Favorite celebrity couple? I'm not a big follower of celebrity couples, but I like Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. They have a relationship that has endured for a long time and they seem very committed to each other and their family.
Overall, are you pro- or anti- Valentine’s Day? I'm a Valentine's Day scrooge. My philosophy is "If you can't tell me you love me the other 364 days of the year, don't tell me on Feb.14 just because Hallmark says you are supposed to or because you are afraid I'll get mad if you don't."
If someone did that “Say Anything” boombox thing outside your window, would you be into it, or call the police? When I was younger, I probably would have been flattered. Now, since I have a husband and three kids, I would probably call the police! :-)
First thing you notice about the objects of your affection? Nothing specific. I focus on overall presentation.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten for Valentine’s Day? A nephew! He is the child who made me an aunt for the first time and he will be 12 on Feb. 14th!
There you have it! Everything "lovey dovey" that you ever wanted to know about me! Now, write your own post and go link up! Oh, and, Happy Valentine's Day!
