Happy Valentine’s Day

 Dear Valentine, 
It was on this day —
August 5, 2007
that you made me the happiest girl. My best friend asked me to be his girlfriend and we spent the weekend together. It was that year that we spent our official Valentine’s Day as a couple… although we had spent previous ones together. It was special. You took me to eat Sushi in Dupont Circle and I was so happy that you were willing to try it for me. 
Now, 6 years later we are going to have Sushi again (i think? – everything you do is always a surprise).
Either who, Happy Valentine’s Day my forever Valentine. 
I love you!
And now the answers to “The Questions” – 
I was wondering if I would ever get my husband to sit down and even answer these questions, but he actually happily did it… although towards the end he was getting a little restless and was starting to say ANYTHING!
His answers are in Red, and mines are in Pink. 
How long have you been married?
A: 2 and a half years
J: 2 year and a half years
Where was your first date?
A: Bahama Breeze
J: Our first date was at Bahama Breeze, his favorite restaurant

Where was your first kiss?
A: In your house
J: At my house, I think? I remember that was where he first came to hang out with me before our first date later that week.

Who first said, “I love you”?
A: You
J: It was definitely me. We were still friends, not even dating when I said it. 

What were your wedding colors?
A: Silver and umm lavender, purple or something
J: They were silver with shades of purple

What is her most commonly used phrase?
J: Don’t come for me… If I didn’t send for you!. (I feel like someone is always trying to play me). 

Who is her celebrity crush?
A: Oh whats his name? umm – one second… Oh my God… Bradley Cooper
J: Channing Tatum

If she was ordering drinks for both of you what would you each get?
A: Sangria
J: Amaretto and OJ for him, Sangria for me.

What is the best meal she has ever cooked you?
A: Dag. I have to remember (I am thinking at this point has it been that long).. the spicy shrimp rice whatever (Dirty Rice with Shrimp)
J: Hot Wings

What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you?
A: That d**n Chili – that joint was like Porridge, I don’t know how you did that.
J: Uhh… I have had a few misses- most recently when I made Chili in the crockpot .. bad idea. I didn’t even eat it.

What is the most-played song on her iPod?
A: You don’t have an iPod.
J: I don’t even know where my iPod is.

What would you say is her most annoying habit?
A: The way you hum music! It gets under my skin.
J: The fact that I don’t pick up my clothes, I am sure is driving him nuts! I am not that domestic.

What is the last thing she does before she goes to bed?
A: Recently, you curl your hair and fart. [REALLY!?]
J: Kiss him goodnight and say I love you before I close my eyes for good that night.

If you could throw out one item of her clothing what would it be?
A: I don’t know, everything you wear you just throw…  your clothes change every week.
J: He pays zero attention to my clothes – if anything I am sure it would be my Black Toms. I have worn them into the ground.

What would you say is your favorite thing about her?
A: Your Booty! I mean your personality. You’re a beautiful person.
J: He better say something wonderful!

What’s her go-to drink at Starbucks?

It changes.
J: It changes each time we go – I drink based on how I feel. 

What’s her blog’s name?!
A: Hello, Good Morning Sunshine
J: He better get this right! He said he just read it. 

You had Questions. I got Answers:

Q: Where are you and your husband at with the fertility situation?
A: Well… let’s see – last I left off I guess it was November – We decided to not so much “try” (read: schedule) anything. We would just see what happens. I still wanted to make sure that we had the best chance possible. I took Clomid 100mgs for November, December and in January I added 150ius of Bravelle (injectable shots that you would take before an IUI) with hopes to by some slim chance still complete my New Years Resolution of conceiving in 2012. Little did I know that it would be so complicated! When it didn’t happen in January, I REALLY tried to suppress my feelings and disappointment about it. It helped that I was super busy in the month of January (read: post-midnight New Years Party, Sorority Centennial, Inauguration, Birthday Parties, Pre-Baby Sunday Dinners) and thankfully, God must know I still need some distractions because my schedule has not slowed down. Once I came out of a fog, I had allowed myself one day to grieve about it. I even started speaking things like, its just not meant to be and its not going to happen. We have two extra bedrooms in our home and one is my office and one is the future nursery. I made plans to fill the future nursery with the biggest furniture so that it could fill the space and I can stop walking past an empty room every day. But thankfully, I prayed and I got my emotions in check. I feel 100% at peace. In short, still not pregnant, but still trying. No immediate plans for going back to the specialist right away but we still speak about children one day being in our home.

Q: What is your short-term goal? What is a long-term goal?
A: My short term goal is to write a book. I want to be finished my first book this year.
A long term goal that I have is to become management in my field.

Q: How are things coming with the house?
A: Well, its funny because I just told my husband that I want to pick a room every 3-6 months so that we don’t get used to just living in the half done mode. We have painted our main living spaces (The Family Room, Kitchen, Hallways, Master Bedroom and Laundry Room) and have tackled a few rooms upstairs. But none are finished completely (Some pictures hung but no room is fully decorated). We also repaint the Master Bathroom again, so that is going to take some time. Other than that no major projects going on right now but hopefully soon.

Still to come:
What are you favorite day to day make up products?
Do you have any tattoos? Does your husband?
Tell us about your first date with your husband.
Can you say how you knew your husband was the one.

Have more questions? Keep them coming.. you can email me or comment if you like.

    I have totally gotten used to living in a half done house!! I haven't done anything new in a while. Good luck with that book. I'm working on mine too! Happy V Day to you and your hubby.

    Your husband had me rolling. Porridge?! Oh see, I would've been so disappointed. When I make crockpot chili, I generally use canned beans. I can't see me soaking beans and doing all sorts of things like that. Not Betty Crocker. I add a lot of the juice in there, because I let it go low and slow for like 5-6 hours. You just need to find a good recipe, because chili has that can be the bomb. If you try it again, definitely make a post on it. Hope you had a good Valentine's Day!
