Sunday Social!

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for Sunday Social, again! This time it's all about Valentine's Day!

Sunday Social
Basically that means I lied when I said that my last post was the last one to be able V-Day! Sorry. I hope you'll forgive me! 

Here's the questions:

1. What's the Best Valentine's Day You've Ever Had? 

Tough one! They've all been pretty darn good. The most memorable one was in college - I think it was my freshman year - and Hubs got me 2 dozen red roses and a HUGE balloon. 

Actual photo of the roses. I still have the petals tucked away somewhere. 
My balloon. I think I still have it somewhere folded up. 
What makes this V-Day so memorable besides the roses and the flowers was that I asked Hubs to shave that night. I had never seen him without a beard so I asked and he delivered. He was not pleased. I never asked him to shave again.

Sad hubs. 

2. What is the Worst Valentine's Day You've Ever Had? 

Honestly, I can't remember a single Valentine's Day that wasn't great. If I was with someone, they were always fun and when I didn't have someone, spending it with my girlfriends was always the best option and it was never a let-down! 

3. What Did You Do for Valentine's Day This Year? 

Well, we didn't get to celebrate on the 14th this year because Hubs had to work. We did go out to dinner on Friday night for sushi. We kind of celebrated (i.e. gave gifts) a little early this year. You can read about his gifts here

4. What is Your Best Valentine's Idea if You're Single?

I remember one Valentine's Day in high school when me and a bunch of my girlfriends were single. Some by choice, some not-so-much. We all got together and watched My Best Friend's Wedding (... because she doesn't get the guy in the end!) and baked cookies in the shapes of guys, decorated them accordingly and bit their heads off. Don't believe me? I have pictures:

These pictures are making me laugh. Oh how young we were! 

5. What's Your Favorite Valentine's Candy? 

I don't really like candy - like at all! I'm more of a strawberry fan. If they're covered in white chocolate or yogurt or whatever they cover them in nowadays, I will eat the whole mess of them. I LOVE strawberries.

6. Favorite Valentine's Memory from Your Childhood?

I don't really remember any particular V-Day from my childhood, but I do remember that my daddy always got me a teddy bear or a doll or something on Valentine's Day. It always made me feel special. Probably why I grew up to be such a daddy's girl. Couldn't help myself! Here's a picture of me and my daddy way back when: 

Are you linking up today? Can't wait to read about it! Hope you're having a great weekend! 


  1. Funny that I married the guy whose cookie I made that night... :)

    1. I thought about that when I went back to look at the pictures! Go figure, right? :)
