Showing the Love

Announcement: If you are in Houston this Thursday be sure to stop by Blue Willow Bookshop for the fabulous Lisa McMann signing! She's too awesome to miss!!

Happy Valentines Day to everyone out there (believer or non-believer). Today is a big day, several blog fests going on! Though I didn't participate in the one I'm about to mention you'd be crazy not to visit, my besties Stina and Christina have an awesome blogfest called The Kiss Me Already Blogfest! Stop over and check it out! There WILL be kissing!!!

Let's get started at the one I joined in on!!!!

Stephanie over at The Writer's Cocoon is working The Show Me Love Blogfest! It's super cute and super fun! Make sure to check out the other entries!





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

The day my husband proposed. A poem on a sheet of paper, written (because he was too nervous). Of course I said yes. He's amazing!

2. What is your favorite love song?

I'm not much for music so whatever the movies play!! They normally have me swooning at the end!

Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book?

Movies: While You Were Sleeping, Sleepless in Seattle, and It Could Happen to You & Books: Anything written by Susan Elizabeth Phillips!

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

An evening to cuddle with my husband (unless he has a surprise)!

5. What's your favorite romantic treat? (candy, chocolate, edible body paint, etc...)

Strawberries, chocolate, and whip cream (honeymoon memories).

There you have it!!! I had a ton of fun and I can't wait to see other people's answers!! Too fun!!!

Jai Joshi said...

What's the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me? hmm, I'll have to think about that one.

Fav dessert is cake though. Don't need to think about that.

Oh yes! The most romantic thing a guy ever did for me was risk my father's wrath to give me a dessert he'd made with his own hands. It was delicious.
