Valentines Day Tag

Happy Valentines Day Readers,
I was at a loss for what to blog about this week, but Blair Fowler posted this tag and since she left the tag open ended I decided to take advantage. So thanks for inadvertently tagging me Blair!

As you guys may or may not have guessed I'm way in to Valentines Day. I know is a greeting card holiday for teens in puppy love, but really I love, love. I'm a bit of a Holiday Head though I get excited about and put way to much effort into all holidays. Okay my whole family does it (seriously Dad, extra Cabbage this year for St. Paddy's Day!). It was so much fun growing up anticipating holidays and their movies, and little treats or traditions my family had, that I want to keep that alive, not only for myself, but for my son, and my husband who kinda thinks I'm nuts. Thankfully he also thinks I'm adorable, So I'm fine with that.

 But I digress, so lets get into the Tag:

1. What is your favorite Valentines Day treat? 
 Heart Shaped Doughnuts from Dunkin Donuts, I'm a huge Doughnut fan though so any kind of Doughnut for any holiday and I'm happy

2. Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries?

 Chocolate Covered Strawberries, I actually really love fruit, so I'd be happy with the strawberries with out the chocolate too.

3. What was your favorite Valentines day memory?

 Our first Valentines together my husband and I were broke, so he made me a scavenger hunt that led to card he made himself complete with a glittery heart. It was kinda amazing and I remember one of the clues was a C.D. with the song that he would always sing to me on it. You can hear the song here.

4. What movie would you rather watch on Valentine's Day: Pretty Woman or You've Got Mail?

You've Got Mail. It has Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, The Little Shop Around The Corner, the big mean bookstore, and old school AOL. It's just one of my all time favorite movies, I remember seeing it in Theaters with my Aunts and my Grandmother

5. What celeb would you not mind having as your Valentine?

 Daniel Radcliffe, what can I say I like short, smart guys who are into punk, for Gay Rights. (Much like my husband except he's better because, to paraphrase Paul from 500 Days Of Summer, he's real)

6. What would you do on your perfect Valentine's date?

 I would spend the day getting coffee and heading to a bookstore. I love books, and there's no better way to celebrate a day, than with a stack of books. Then finishing off the night with a film either out or at home

7. Red or pink lips on Valentines Day?

 Pink, I haven't found the perfect pink yet, but I think YSL's Glossy Stains might have it.

8. What is your ideal Valentine's Day date outfit?

 If I'm going to the bookstore or staying home, then a pair of great skinny jeans, converse, a casual top and a jacket.
If we're going to a fancier date then a gorgeous dress, flats and a trench.
For both outfits the Kate Spade Be Mine Necklace and Earrings

9. Homemade or store-bought gifts?

 I like a Mixture of Both, Make me a card, buy me a present. I've gotten some great homemade gifts, and some amazing presents bought, guess it depends on the year

10. Would you wear your hair up or hair down for a date night?

It depends on what I'm wearing but mostly up and probably curly. 

So I know you'll be answering late, but Tag you're it.
