Will You Be My Valentine?

I know it's not Valentine's Day anymore. But everyone should have a Valentine every day. So I'm hoping you will be my Valentine. Deal?

I had this super cool linkup that I was going to join yesterday, but unfortunately I was too busy to actually link up. Bad blogger award. But today! Today is a new day! And now I will post that linkup. I'm joining Melissa for her super cool, relationship questioning linkup! There was a list of questions that  your SO and you both had to answer. (It's a test!) So E played along and here are our answers!


*Disclaimer: E and I are not married, so I had to reword a few questions.  :)

How long have you been together?
E: 2 years 8 months 8 days; 984 days
G: 2 years 8 months

Where was your first date?
E: La Tolteca, La Plata, MD
G: La Tolteca, his house, and Target

Where was your first kiss?
E: provided address of his parents' house
G: His parents' house

Who said "I love you" first?
E: Me  :)
G: He did

What is her most commonly used phrase?
E: "Mother Eff!" (not the actual curse)
G: "Are you kidding me?!"
(he's actually right, I do say that a lot)

Who is her celebrity crush?
E: Johnny Depp/Adam Levine/Taylor Hanson
G: Taylor Hanson/Matt Bomer/Johnny Depp
(when we were comparing answers I almost had a breakdown because I forgot Adam Levine. Bonus points for E.)

If she was ordering drinks for both of you what would you each get?
E: Blue motorcycle for her, whatever beer the bartender has for him
G: Shinerbock for him, bay breeze for her

What is the best meal she has ever cooked you?
E: Pesto chicken pasta and the potato, green bean, chicken bake
G: baked chicken and vegetables

What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you? 
E: lemon chicken soup
G: lemon chicken soup
(guys, it was totally disgusting. Fail.)

What is the most-played song on her iPod?
E: Give a Little - Hanson/Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson
G: probably something Hanson

What would you say is your most annoying habit?
E: Nail biting
G: His constant singing/noise making
(I was going to put nail biting, but it doesn't really affect me. It's much more irritating when he's always making noise.)

What is the last thing she does before she goes to bed?
E: Asks for a massage/gets tucked in
G: puts on chapstick

If you could throw out one item of her clothing what would it be?
E: purple tank top
G: flip flops with the holes

What would you say is your favorite thing about her?
E: sense of humor
G: I make him laugh

What's her go-to drink at Starbucks (which she just gave up for Lent. Boo.)?
E: iced white mocha - no whip
G: iced white mocha - no whip

What's her blog's name?
E: A Gayle Force
G: A Gayle Force

I think he did pretty well! It was definitely fun to compare answers; we had a good laugh afterward. We're such nerds. I have to say, he knows me better than I know myself and it's a little scary. 

Since we're on the topic of Valentine's Day (well, we were anyway...), I want to share with you a few parts of my day yesterday. E and I don't really do gifts or anything. This is our third VDay together, and we've always gone away to celebrate. Taking trips is our gift to each other. We're actually leaving later today to go to Philadelphia for the weekend. With this in mind, please see what I woke up to yesterday morning:

I LOVE GIRAFFES.

This giraffe was sitting on top of my purse in the living room, so I saw him before I left for work. Adorable, right? Oh, PS - this giraffe plays music AND dances. Yep. 

As if that's not enough, I came home yesterday to find E in the kitchen putting away groceries (which is a win in itself). We had a whole conversation before I even realized that this had happened:


Well, I took this picture after I made dinner. So technically this hadn't totally happened yet. (The pictures I took when I originally saw the table are terrible quality, so you get this instead.) But he bought flowers and put them in the glasses and lit candles. Romantic and whatnot. 

I had one more thing I was gonna write about today, but this post has already become too long. I will leave you with something to look forward to. Besides, I have to go get ready for the day and pack for our trip! I've got things to do. Peace up, A-Town down.
