Show Me The Love Blogfest - Happy Valentine's Day 2011

Linking up today with author Stephanie Haefner for her first ever blogfest!  Simply click on the photo to the right to be directed to her blog and to others who are participating today! 

1- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?  My Hubs is full of romance, although he'll never freely admit it.  So, shhh, please keep it on the down low.  I don't need anything getting screwed up now!  We were married in Jamaica - and once for Christmas he surprised me with a trip back for our anniversary.  How sweet was that!?!  We've planned other trips together but I think that was a very romantic and sentimental gesture.   Last night we dined at a very romantic spot in Philly ~ he set it all up without my asking or knowing until he sent me a copy of the reservation.  He is full of awesomeness! 

2- What is your favorite love song?  Our wedding song ~ I Cross My Heart by George Straight. I also LOVE two other songs - Jim Brickman & Donny Osmond (and others have sung it too) teamed up for a PBS special and performed "Love of My Life" and Jim Brickman & Wayne Brady  teamed up for "Beautiful" on the Disney Songbook CD.  I absolutely love all of those songs.  But, really, when you hear a love song playing, isn't it always one of your favorites and doesn't it always make you think of your sweetheart?  :-) 

3- Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book?  A few movies ~ it's really hard to pick just one!  I'll give you my top two:  both with Keanu Reeves (not because I'm a freak, simply a coincidence that he starred in both.)  A Walk in the Clouds and The Lake House.  'nuff said. 

4- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day this year?  Got a sitter for Sunday since we're both working, kidlets have practices and life just generally happens whether it is Valentine's Day or not.  :-)  We went to the Flyers game together and then drove down Philly's South Street to our destination at Bistro Romano.  Very quaint and eclectic romantic restaurant on Lombard Street in Philadelphia.  Love it!

5- What's your favorite romantic treat? (candy, chocolate, edible body paint, etc...)  Really, Miss Stephanie - WoW - what a question.  LOL  Really, I don't need treats of that kind.  I love just being able to spend quality, quiet time with the man I love.  We can create romance anywhere - it is hard to concentrate on each other though with "life" trying to assert it's priorities on us.  So quiet time and space is my favorite treat. 

Hope it is a Happy Valentine's Day for everyone!

Love to you Hubs!

Yeah, all love songs are my favorite when I'm listening to them. There are a few I seek out, but still . . even I can't resist the lure of promises.

Do you remember Keanu in Sweet November? Love that movie too.

Ah, your life is so full of sweet romance. Cherish it :)
