Valentine's Day Virtual Blog Hop

Good afternoon!! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day. I just love Valentine's as I have the most romantic hubby in the world *dripping sarcasm* I'll just push that little nugget back under the rug where it doesn't cause any problems, LOL!! He is being forced to watch The Notebook with me tonight :D :D :D
