TBB Asks, February 2018

February is the month of love and today I’m linking up to share my thoughts about all things Valentines Day. ‘TBB Asks’ is easily one of my favorite monthly linkups. I love sharing more about myself and reading about others too. 

Check out my answers below, grab the graphic and play along with The Blended Blog ladies.


1. Kisses or Hugs?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I am a hugger. In fact, one of my favorite things about the hubby is his amazing hugs. Nothing beats a good hug at the end of a long day. 
2. Candy or Flowers?
No brainer, CANDY. But if I could have any sweet of my choice, I’d chose donuts. #duh
3. Baking or Cooking?
Baking! I feel like I am pretty domestic, and know my way around the kitchen, but I feel WAY more confident baking than cooking. I was once told that I bake like a goddess. That might just be my favorite compliment, EVER! I’m hoping to up my baking game in 2018 and start doing some technically difficult bakes.

4. Do you remember your first kiss?
Of course I do. Doesn’t mean I am going to dish the details though ;)!
5. Favorite color of Roses?
I’m not really a roses kind of girl. But, I do remember my mom having a rose bush that had pink/coral/yellow blooms on it. I always thought they were beautiful. 
6. Conversation Hearts, yes or no?
 I think they are fun to decorate with, but not to eat. However, I do enjoy the Sweet Tart kind. 
7. Do you leave love notes?

Yes! Russ and I have been leaving love notes around for years now. They are such a simple way to let your spouse know that you are thinking about them.

If you haven’t surprised your spouse with a love note in a while, write one soon! It doesn’t have to be anything long or complicated. You can even be creative and leave them in unexpected places.

8. Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
Typically I put up a few decorations on the mantle and the table. I don’t do anything too crazy. 
9. Red or Pink?..
As a girl mom, I have to say PINK! I never realized pink was a neutral color and then I had two daughters.
10. Milk, White or Dark Chocolate?
Dark chocolate. Most of my favorite chocolates come from Trader Joe’s. I wish we had a Trader Joe’s.

11.  Do you believe in love at first sight?
Nope. I believe in attraction at first sight, but not love. 
12. Do you give Humorous or Serious Valentine Cards?
I am all about the Valentine puns. Last year I mailed out some pun filled valentines to a few of my favorite blogging friends. I had the best time creating all of them. 
13. Favorite Chick Flick or Romantic Movie?
I’ve never been a big chick flick watcher, but a few that I enjoy are: Cinderella (the new one), While You Were Sleeping and Sleepless In Seattle
14. Stay In or Go Out?
Typically we stay in on Valentines Day. One of my favorite ways to celebrate, at home, is by making a fancy, multi-course, family meal.
