My 4 yr old granddaughter got a laughing card from her grandpa and she loved it. She told her mom she needed a way to hold it open and still suck her thumb. Happy V Day to you.

Diana Joy said...

Wonderful post... That photo of Richard Gere coming up the escalator with that red rose in hand still makes my heart melt.

Happy Valentine's Day! I just finished making cake balls for dessert. (We never go out on Valentine's Day or Mother's Day...two days I'd much rather spend at home than waiting in a restaurant!) I'd never made them before and wanted to give it a try. We'll have steak cooked out on the grill tonight. And I bought my husband a brand new trash can with wheels so he can wheel the trash to the curb. How's that for romantic?

Remington said...

Happy Valentine’s Day, my friend! Enjoy!

Love Of Quilts said...

Happy Valentines day and thanks for sharing.
I think the next time Wade and I go shopping I'm wearing red to see if I can get him to spend lots of money on me...lol

Oh dear...that gorgeous man on the elevator made me smile!!!! THanks for sharing him and the fat-free chocolates! Happy Valentine's Day to you!!!...:)JP

Jeanie said...

Hmmm...I got a gift card that I am very happy with, and it will last a lot longer than flowers. If I was 30 years younger I would probably prefer flowers.
Happy Valentine's Day to you.

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, Thank you for sharing! Happy Valentine's Day, Blessings, Catherine xo

Rob-bear said...

Thanks for the useful Valentine's information. None of it applies to me, but it's useful for people to know such things.

Trust you had a great Valentine's Day.

Jean said...

OK...I made it just before midnight.

Happy Valentine's Day Sandie!!!

Wish I had Richard Gere standing with a red rose at my door.:)

Jim said...

Good Sandie! I liked all your love notes. The fifth graders in love will be my favorites. I was in love in the first grade. We almost had an affair.

Also you're right on the calorie free candy. Candy has no calories just once in a while. Valentine's Day is one. :)

Jim said...

I blogged about my first grade love but it isn't in an obvious place. :) :) :)

Grandma Bonnie said...

Happy Valentines Day. I love the chocolate!!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you for another very honorable mention! I hope you had a better Valentine's Day than my wife did. Of course, I thought it was just fine, but she appears to be of a different opinion. Sigh.

BlueShell said...

yummy...well..not the chocolate...the dear Richard Gere....he's so "yummy"!

thank you...
Hug you!

Sush said...

Ahh Sandie, I can always count on you for some lovely eye candy and calorie free goodies! I do love that quote...too much hustle and bustle these days!
Hugs and Happy Valentines Day to you and yours!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Fabulous and interesting V-Day post, Sandie! Thank you! :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love all the Valentines stats! Mmmm, chocolate :-)

Debbie said...

I like your facts.

Having taught the fifth grade, I can agree that they are falling in love just about every minute.

I must be a fifth grader at heart. I keep falling love every minute too. Of course, I do keep falling in love with the same fella.

Yeah, I know... OH PUKE, Debbie.
Ha!

Checking in on a borrowed clunker. Doing the best I can to keep connected while my computer is in the hospital.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Thanks for sharing him with me :)
Enjoyed the survey. Hope your day was lovely.

Angela said...

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day Sandie!
