The Valentine’s Tag

First of all ~ HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! 

The lovely Ashly did this post {here} and it sounded fun so here’s mine!

What is your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?
I think I’d say chocolates are my favorite treat for any holiday!

Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries?
Neither – sweethearts remind me of being a little kid and sharing them with my friends on the school bus but I also remember that even back then I didn’t really like them!  And I don’t like strawberries that much, esp fresh.  (weird I know!)

What was your favorite Valentine’s Day memory?
I think I was in 4th grade-ish, and we made these mailboxes for our Valentine cards.  The days before we’d all bring our cards to hand out and stuff everyone else’s mailbox. On party day we’d open our mailbox and see what we got.  Anyways – I opened one card and read it out loud to my mom who was one of the parents helping with the party.  The little boy who gave it to me heard me, and said, ” and I’m mean it too” in reference to whatever the card said.  I think I was probably mortified at the time but looking back it makes me smile!

What movie would you rather watch on Valentine’s Day: “Pretty Woman” or “You’ve Got Mail”?
Hands down – Pretty Woman.   Both are great movies, but Pretty Woman has that whole shopping element which I loved since I watched it for the first time years ago.  “Big Mistake…Big…Huge…I have to go shopping now!”  {bonus points if you know what scene I’m talking about!}

What celeb would you not mind having as your Valentine?
I debated this for quite a while…if you know me, I’m one of those girls who likes action movies.  My top three were Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels), Joe Manganiello, and my winner… Jason Statham.  I based this upon how they look, act, rock a suit, and the ability to save my life! lol

What would you do on your perfect Valentine’s Day date?
I’m changing this to my fantasy Valentine’s Day date since I’m single and dream big!  Perfect date, get the day off work, and get picked up in the morning wearing cute comfy/travel clothes.  Go to the airport, and board a plane to a beach (Turks & Caicos would be perfect but I won’t get too picky as long as its warm)  – where waiting is a oceanfront room in an all inclusive resort and there are no kids running around ruining my chill moment.  (No…I don’t have kids, if I did, that might be different, but if I’m on romantic/chill vacation  – I don’t want them around!)  Also, there would be couples massages, drinks, sunsets, spa days…the works.  I figure this would have to be a 3-4 day trip when its all said and done, but since this is fantasy its a 2 week vacation!

Red or pink lips on Valentine’s Day?
Pink, I’m still searching for my perfect red.

What is your ideal Valentine’s Day date outfit?
I’d say something that makes me feel sexy and confident as well as comfortable.  It would probably be black slacks, and shirt, and then accessorize with a pop of color(red) in my shoes, handbag, and jewelry.    (Its Nebraska – its too cold to wear a skirt or dress and walk outside!)

Homemade or store-bought gifts?
Handmade – even if its some sweet note, letter, or dinner.

Would you wear your hair up or hair down for a date night?
Most days, I wear my hair up.  I’d wear it down and lots of curls and volume for date night with glam makeup.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you my beautiful friends!  Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck and I tag any of you to do this and let me know so I can read your answers!
