VD (valentines day!)

What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

Your Candy Heart Says “Hug Me”
A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!

Your ideal Valentine’s Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you’ve planned out

Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking

What turns you off: fighting and conflict

Why you’re hot: you’re fearless about falling in love

so i found this on GAYLE’S blog and tried it out for myself. gayle’s candy heart also says “hug me”. interesting. i would not have thought gayle and i were that much alike. if i were to describe gayle (and i might as well) i would say she’s someone with well thought out opinions that she shares when asked whether it’s what you want to hear or not. she pretty much tells it like it is. she doesn’t seem flighty and i personally think she’s hugely courageous (have you seen how close she gets to ANIMALS?!?!) she’s competent, intelligent, and has a great sense of humor.

and me? well i’m a nitwit.

so how was your v-day? i proposed a little something different and surprisingly, scott went along with it. no, it did not involved whips or chains.

we each chose a word that represented what we wanted the other person to focus on for our valentine’s day date and we were not to spend over $20. scott chose relax. i chose romantic even though i KNOW scott and i KNOW he totally sucks at is not naturally a “romantic. so our date was not until evening as we were watching the kidlets in the afternoon so carin and scottie could have a day date.

scott said he needed to run to town for a few things…..just vague enough for me to know he DID NOT want me to tag along. he came home an hour later and tossed a store bag at me and said “happy valentines day”. hmmm….presentation is lacking. timing is off. oh well, i’m not surprised. in the bag is a chocolate rose (it’s dove chocolate so i’m sure it’s nummy….haven’t tried it yet), a chick flick video and a musical card (which he actually signed…..sometimes when he buys one “from your husband” or “to my wife” he doesn’t see the need to sign it…..sigh.) okay. not bad. could have been worse. was about what i expected. at least he “played” along!

on the way home from watching the kidlets, he suggested stopping to get a bottle of mudslides. more points!

so for his “relaxing” date. once we got home, i ran a bath for him, while he was in there, i popped a pan of lasagna in the oven (his favorite), set the table with a candle, made a salad, and then set up the family room for a 30 minute back rub for him. after that, we ate and watch a video i’d purchased for him and drank mudslides.

and then he finished up the “romance” by giving me a foot massage. major points!!!!!

so today, i asked him if he liked his “relaxing” valentine’s day date. he said it was probably the best one he’d ever had. upon further investigation it was determined that he has no real recollection of any other valentine’s day dates.

imagine next year will be his favorite too.

ps……..i forgot. since scott requested that he NOT appear in my blog, where-ever you read the word SCOTT, please substitute “un-named male subject”.

    well Scott must not read your blog, or he would already know we are discussing his balls.

    Sounds like you had a great Vday.

    And you describing me? That’s funny too! Thanks for the compliments.

    I’m reading the book A Three Dog Life that you let me borrow and thoroughly enjoying it.

    Was it really Valentines Day – I’m missing a gift I think???? Mark was sick and all I’ve gotten for the last week is a fist pump 😦 Although we double fist pumped on Valentines Day. He’s feeling much better but (cough cough) I might be coming down with something so might have to continue to just fist pump 🙂 He might catch on pretty soon though and then I’m all out of excuses…
