Ten on Tuesday

1. How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?
I’m pretty neutral about it. It’s really not a big deal for Kyle and I. I find everything to be stupidly overpriced and gimmicky.

2. Are you in love?
That I am – I love my husband very much!

3. What is your favorite love song?
Probably “Marry Me” by Train. I walked down the aisle to it for my wedding, and it still makes me all teary-eyed.

4. Did your parents do anything for you on Valentine’s Day when you were a child?
We’d get a little goody bag with chocolates and candy.

5. What is your love language? (Click here if you want to take the quiz.)
My scores were Words of Affirmation: 6, Quality Time: 9,  Receiving Gifts: 2, Acts of Service: 9, and Physical Touch: 4. So, according to the quiz, my love language is quality time. I’m not sure how much I agree with it, but oh well.

6. How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Gifts? Dinner?
We usually don’t celebrate. (See my answer for question #1!) We’ll do something like go to a movie a few days before or after the actual “holiday” and say that’s how we’re celebrating.

7. What is your favourite flower?
Gerbera daisies for sure!

8. What is your favourite love story? (Book and/or movie.)
Movie-wise I think I’d have to say The Notebook. I haven’t read too many romance novels, so I don’t really know what my favourite book would be. I’m leaning towards Marley and Me. Rather unconventional, but it’s an amazing story of a man’s love for his dog. As a dog lover, I totally get it.

9. What is the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you? Or you have done for someone?
Kyle and I aren’t really all that romantic, but I would say when he proposed to me it was the  most romantic thing he’s done. He bought a 1/2 dozen of my favourite cupcakes and when I told him he was the best boyfriend ever while eating one, he made me close my eyes because he had a surprise for me. I did, and then when he told me to open them he was down on one knee with the ring. With a mouth full of chocolate cupcake, I immediately started sobbing. I didn’t expect it at all!

10. How did you meet your spouse/significant other?
We originally met in Grade 2! Kyle had a huge crush on me ever since, and we used to have play dates when we were little. As we got older I never gave him the time of day, until one summer in high school when we hung out one evening and got drunk. (Classy, I know!) I’ll admit that I still didn’t have feeling towards him then, until a couple months into the school year when we were in cooking class together. We hung out again one night, and after he dropped me off, I regretted not kissing him goodnight. I told him that when I logged onto MSN Chat when I got home (because that’s how we got shit done back in the day), so he came back to meet me, I told me dad I dropped my keys and had to go find them, and we finally kissed. Almost 10 years later, we’re still together today!

  1. Sneaky, proposing when your mouth was full of cupcake :) Nathan and I don’t really do Valentine’s Day either – we’re getting a heart-shaped pizza from BP’s because we did it last year and i’ve been craving BP’s for a month now – but we’ll go out for dinner or something another time when it’s less busy and less expensive!
