Show Me Some Love

It's Valentine's Day! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

My good friend, Steph, is hosting her first ever blogfest and I signed up for it. You can see the list of participants here. Basically, I just have to answer a few questions so here they are:

1- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?

Read my answer to question number 3!

2- What is your favorite love song?

My favorite love song would have to be hubby and mine's wedding song - Hero by Enrique Iglesias. I melt when hubby sings this to me.

3- Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book?

Phantom of the Opera - the movie. Why? I'm so glad you asked!

Because we were poor college students when we were dating, hubbythenboyfriend and I only really went out on dates on our monthly anniversary.

One month, hubbythenboyfriend made dinner reservations for us at a nicer restaurant. We got dressed up. As we were driving over, hubbythenboyfriend decided to pull over to get an umbrella from the trunk since the weatherman said it might rain and we were wearing nice clothes.

A minute later, he came up to my door and opened it, wearing a cape and a Phantom mask.

He had pulled over at a park and took me beneath some trees. He sang two songs from the movie before getting down on one knee. It was sooo romantic!!!

4- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day this year?

Yep! Hubby and I are going to have dinner at a nice restaurant an hour away from home. We have a gift card. :) And we're bringing the kids. I just hope they sleep on the ride there!

5- What's your favorite romantic treat?

Definitely chocolate! I'm a chocoholic!


So what are your plans for today? And don't worry, next Monday I'll return to my inspiring creature post!

Phantom of the opera is pretty great. I got to see the black white silent original and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Aah...your hubby sounds so romantic.

You've won one of my 200 Followers Q and A vouchers! I need to check - is it alright to send an eVoucher direct from Amazon to your email address?

Your proposal story is so sweet! I love it!

Thanks for sharing! I stopped by from the Share The Love Blogfest too. :)

Donna Hole said...

Super awesome; love the proposal story. What a great hubby you have.


Erin Kane Spock said...

That is such a romantic story. My husband is tone deaf, so it would have been really unsuccessful if he'd tried something like that (although I like to think I'd be sensitive enough to appreciate the gesture).
Great to find you!

Holy carp that's romantic! Hubby often sings to me too, but he doesn't do those all-out romantic things that most girls dream about (he gave me my ring while I was packing up magazines to move apartments. In his defense the ring came well after we started planning the wedding - the magazines were wedding mags :P)
