In honor of Valentine's Day
{no. 1} What is your favorite flower?
I can't say that I have a favorite.  I love a mixture of anything.  I am partial to gardenias because my dad loved their intoxicating scent when I was little.  I had them in my wedding and smelling them makes me think of him.

{no. 2} Tell us about your favorite Valentine's Day:
OK, this is so NOT romantic.  After a church Valentine banquet, a large group of us went to a local rustic shopping complex that occupies a former oat factory.  It was the night of the NBA Slam Dunk contest.  About 15 of us sat there in front of a TV and watched the contest.  We were all dressed up, sipping on Coke, and feeling nervous.  Even though I didn't like the guy I was with, I actually had a really good time! 
Hubby and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day.  Life is just too stinkin' busy!

{no. 3} Was Valentine's Day a big deal when you were a kid?
It was all about the Valentine box!  I remember scourging closets, looking for an empty shoe box.  Mom would help me wrap it in some festive paper and Dad would cut a slit in the top.  Every year, I felt like mine was the best and I was so proud of it.  I think kids today are missing out by not making a great deal over The Box.

{no. 4} If you could have any one thing for Valentine's Day what would it be?
Peace and quiet.  Or is that two things? 
{no. 5} Do you have any special plans for Valentine's Day?
Like I said, we don't make a big deal out of it. We never go out and we don't buy gifts. Sometimes, I'll bake something special for Hubby or cook a nice meal. I did buy steaks this week. Hopefully they turn out.  We will have four kids running around us as we eat them.  I may park them in front of the TV with a pizza or something.
