Valentines Treat

Local Girl from An Island Life is sponsoring a Valentines Goody Swap. Go sign up! It ends Wednesday, though, so hurry!! I'm sending some treats to Aussie Ray. Boy, is he in for some yummy yankee candies!

She has a little questionnaire so everyone can get to know us better, so here's mine!!
  • What is your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day?
  • In reality, what is your Valentine’s Day really like?
  • If you could have a lifetime supply of your favorite sweet indulgence, what would it be?
  • Is there any sweet treat you absolutely do not like?
  • If you fell into a pool of chocolate, how would you get out?
My idea of a romantic Valentine's Day? Um, having the kids not around would be a nice start! Just being with Josh is romantic, but I am inclined to think of when we first met-those times were most romantic. I'll have to dedicate a post about when we fell in love. Superbowl Sunday is coming up, which would be the perfect time! (I'm rambling and not answering the question...sorry) I can't really say what my idea of a romantic day would be-I would want Josh to remind me why he fell in love with me. I would also like it to involve sushi.

What is my Valentine's Day really like? It varies-sometimes it is just another day; other times we get a little more sappy. This year, Night is old enough to celebrate. We've hung up some decorations. I would like to get something for the kids. Last year, I made a homemade Valentines Day card. That was fun.

Sweets? I like em all! Ice cream is my favorite. I also LOVE ferrero rocher. Yummy. I'm not a fan of chocolate flavored stuff-like cake or ice cream, but I like real chocolate, like candy bars.

If I fell in, I'd just swim out. I don't really think I'd want to eat or drink my way out. If I could fall in, chances are other people could too, and that'd be gross. What if they peed?

Hi Mari... just reading about you so I can figure out what to get for the goody swap. :O) My idea of a romantic day is also without ankle biters... but my 5 yr old gets upset when she isn't included on our anniversary and things like that so it usually doesn't happen! I also would love sushi, but my husband hates seafood, so I am thinking having fish breath wouldn't be too terribly romantic for him LOL!

Great post! I am glad you love chocolate as much as I do, that makes my ideas a bit more fun.

Talk to you soon, Mary
