All About the Valentine's

I haven't done a Sunday Social in awhile, but the questions this week are fun. Hit it!

1. What was the best Valentine's Day you ever had?
There's a tie for this answer. My junior and senior year of high school. Looking back, I had an amazing high school sweetheart. Junior year, his bus was late. I'm sitting in my first morning class waiting for it to start. In he walks with a huge bouquet of flowers and a balloon. This was important, because he couldn't stand my classmates (I was in a special high school program for overachievers). He came in anyways! Later in my locker, I found a huge stuffed panda bear.
Senior year, I opened my locker to find a copy of Sweet Home Alabama. When I shut the door, he was standing next to me with a bouquet of roses. Apparently he hid behind the door near my locker, waiting to surprise me.
Like I said, in high school I was spoiled!

2. What was the worst Valentine's Day you've ever had?
 Easy. In 2010, I got dumped two weeks before Valentine's Day by my boyfriend of 2 years. Yep. Totally awful. The only positive thing about that Valentine's Day were my students. They knew I was sad about something and they gave me a huge amount of flowers, candy and cards. I have to say, if you have to be single, be a teacher. You will ALWAYS get something for Valentine's Day.

3. What did you do for Valentine's Day this year?
J and I bought all the fixin's for sliders and he came up with the idea to have bacon wrapped shrimp! It was a SUPER yummy dinner. For dessert, I swiped an amazing red velvet cupcake from the Valentine's Day luncheon at school. J sent me flowers as usual too:

4. What is your best Valentine's Day idea if you're single?
Grab a group of your girlfriends and go out to dinner and drinks together! One of my favorite college memories is this Valentine's Day dinner with 6 of my closest college friends. We went to a Japanese restaurant and had a total blast!

5. What is your favorite Valentine's Day candy?
Not candy hearts, I can tell you that! I have to say white chocolate covered ANYTHING! Last year, one of my students bought me this set from Peterbooke, this AMAZING candy store here in Jax. It had white chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, Oreos, and graham crackers. Most delicious thing I've tasted!

6. Favorite Valentine's memory from your childhood?
Hmm. I don't have one. My mom loves holidays but never made a big deal about this one. We did always get a card and a bag of candy from her though!

  2. Oh my gosh, boys are that sweet in high school? I was lucky if my "sweet heart" forked over the two bucks it cost to have a single carnation delivered to me in homeroom!! Ah well, I'm married to a sweetie now so it's all good! New follower here from the hop! Would love to have you swing by high heeled mama tomorrow morning and enter for a chance to win in my first ever sponsored give away!
