Sunday Social 2/17/13

The theme for today Sunday Social is Valentines Day!  I wish the theme was birthdays, as mine was yesterday :)

Sunday Social

1.  What is the best Valentine's Day you've ever had?
Honestly, they all sort of blend together.  I worked as a server at a fine dining restaurant for years so my Valentine's Days were spent sleeping a little late and then heading into work early.  I loved working Valentine's Day because it meant a full section and big tips.  I would come home and have a heart-shaped Papa Murphy's pizza with JF and was happy.  My absolute favorite, though, was my first Valentine's Day with JF.  He thinks that I hated it, but it was so much fun.  I got off work at the restaurant and went to his house, where he made us pasta carbonara.  I then got a stomach ache, so that's why he thinks I hated it...but in all honesty, the ill feeling probably came from the 10+ chocolate covered strawberries I had eaten at work rather than his cooking :)

2.  What is the worst Valentine's Day you have ever had?
This one.  I was pulled over for speeding and I KNOW that I was going the speed limit.  How do I know?  Because I have been watching my speedometer like crazy since last Tuesday, when I also got pulled over.  I honestly can say I was not speeding on Valentine's Day.  I told the officers that.  I explained that I had just pulled onto the street from a stop sign and I couldn't imagine that I was going 13 mph over.  They more or less laughed at me.  So they ruined my day.  I was having a great one.  Was able to go to both boys school parties.  Surprised them with Shatto milk in the morning.  And a nervous cop + asshole cop team completely ruined my day.

3.  What did you do for Valentine's Day this year?

Quick treadmill workout and mat Pilates!
Painting at EZ's party.
Strawberry float at L's party!

A magical unicorn cookie from JF :)

Pizza for dinner.  Yum!

 It was a crazy-busy day.  I left the house at 9:30 am and didn't return til 8:30 pm.  I taught at the Y and the Studio but managed to squeeze in a workout of my own, get to both boys parties at two different schools, and then have a cozy, pizza-eating night at home.  My kind of Valentines Day for sure.
4.  What is your best Valentine's idea if you are single?
Work at a restaurant!  Trust me, the mushy couples won't bother you at all because they will be paying extra for their romantic meal and hopefully tipping generously to impress their date!

5.  What is your favorite Valentine's Candy?
Toblerone!  Ever since a client got me a Toblerone bouquet one year for Valentine's Day I have been hooked!

6.  Favorite Valentine's memory from childhood?
I can't remember the exact year, but I made a Valentine box using red wrapping paper with tiny white hearts.  I outlined the box with strands of tiny plastic pearls.  I think I used white glitter, too.  Duh!  I loved that box and kept it until I couldn't dust it anymore.

  2. Ohhh, I forgot about being a server on Valentine's Day. You are so right. They make bank. No one wants to look like an a-hole on a fancy date by tipping bad!

    And happy birthday!!
