Valentine's Old School Blogging

This month Elaine and Tamara decided to Old School Blog with a Love/Valentine's Day theme.  Here are my answers to their always thought provoking questions.

How do you typically celebrate Valentine's Day?   In the past I'd always receive 1 dozen red roses, chocolates and a Hallmark card.  Since meeting My Love that has all changed.  Each year, it began with our first Valentine's Day, I receive a handmade card.  For me, there is no better gift.  Usually My Love will cook a delicious dinner for the 2 of us.

This year's card.
Do you like to get A) chocolates B) flowers C) a sweet card  or D) all of the above?  See above question.

Would you consider yourself a "cuddler"?  If not would you at least cuddle on Valentine's Day?  I am a cuddler to a certain degree.  Watching a show on tv cuddling is fine.  Just before I fall asleep in bed is fine.  But after a little bit I like to have my space back.

What is your favorite movie about love or with a love story?  50 First Dates.  The way Henry woos Lucy and gives her life back to her is charming.  

Do you believe in "love at first sight"?  Did it happen to you?  I believe in "like" at first sight.  And, yes, it has happened to me many times.

Do you believe love can conquer all things?  Absolutely.

What is one of the main things you love about your S.O.?  I am a true Type A person.  My Love is my Margaritaville.  He is my calm happy place.  

If you could have the perfect  Valentine Date what would you and your loved one do?  Head over to Sanibel Island.  Fishing for My Love.  Shelling for me.  Then dinner at the Bubble Room Restaurant.

A photo from our first Sanibel vacation.
Tell me about your first crush!  His name was Scott and we were in Kindergarten.  I saw him again as an adult and I was too timid to go up to him and say hello.  

Do you have any embarrassing or horror dating stories?  I wish I could say no, but unfortunately I have to say yes.  In my 20's as a favor for my then best friend I doubled with his best friend.  He did not drive, he was drunk the entire date, he passed out and drooled on himself and then wanted a kiss goodnight.  I couldn't get away fast enough.  Horror Story and thank goodness my only one.  

Favorite Flower?  Daisy

What's the first type of chocolate you hope for when you reach into a box of chocolates?  Coconut cups.  

Favorite Love song?  A little know song by Toby Keith called Rock You Baby.

What is the best break up song?  Don't Know What You Got (Til it's Gone) by Cinderella

Favorite celebrity couple?  Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward.  I know...but sorry I just don't see longevity in any present couples.  

Overall, are you pro- or anti- Valentine's Day?  I am anti-.  I don't think we should have a day where men are pushed to spend money on the woman they love because the media says so.  It's much to commercialized for me and I don't think it's necessary.  I believe we should show our love in non-monetary ways.  For instance, a hug.  It doesn't cost a cent, but the rewards are stupendous.

If someone did that "Say Anything" boombox thing outside your window, would you be into it or call the police?  Ahhh...In Your Eyes, and John Cusak.  At that age I would be into it.  Today, I'd call the police.  

First thing you notice about the objects of you affection?  Eyes...the eyes tell the whole story.  There is no hiding from the eyes.

What's the best thing you've ever gotten for Valentine's Day?  See first question.


  1. Yes to 50 First Dates!! Whenever a friend says they don't like Adam Sandler, I have to cite that movie and The Wedding Singer. He's awesome!
    Wow, I haven't heard Cinderella in ages. I'm playing it right now. And I definitely believe in like at first sight, or a strong attraction!

    1. Adam Sandler has always been a favorite of mine. He's goofy and lovable. haha, I love the 80's hair bands. It was a great time to be a teen.

  2. If John Cusack was in my yard with the boom box, I would swoon. Then and now. Love the handmade Valentine's card -so sweet!

    1. He was always a favorite of mine too. Each year I cannot wait to see what my card will look like. I love them.


Recognition is the greatest motivator.
