My best memory of Valentines day was getting my first card from someone I really liked...it had those candy hearts in it..

My best memory is last year's Valentine's Day. My husband took me to a great restaurant and I totally blew my diet eating steak and mashed potatoes. It was the first time I'd ever had Creme Brulee, too. While we were eating, he surprised me with a tennis bracelet that I'd wanted forever. It was a far cry from his usual Applebee's dinner and a box of Stover chocolates.

The best when my husband got out of the military, he was injured but he was alive and home.

My best valentines day memory was back when I was in college. me and some friends (male and female singles) dressed in black and fake-kidnapped some of our other friends to all go out to a group valentines dinner. In retrospect, we could hhave probably gotten into a lot of troule for abducting people into the back of a van in the middle of the street, but a good time was had by all.

I seem to be particularly cursed when it comes to V-day... most of them have been pretty bad romance-wise, and yet it's my favorite holiday. After one year when my boyfriend cheated on me just before the Big Day, I decided to own the holiday in my own special way... each year after that, I dressed up as cupid. :) I wore boxers and red tights and glittery red heart headbands and went around tossing heart confetti at people. I remember waiting at the top of the stairs in college to drop a shower of red confetti on a friend. Those little red hearts never go away, no matter how many times you vaccuum, I swear! I think some of it is still on my rug, three moves later! I'm single again this year, but it could just be my best one yet because I'll be spending it with my awesome daughter... and maybe she'll be cupid with me. :)

My best Valentines Days was last year. I was given clues about my gift for weeks (He can't really keep secrets). My favorite band is Led Zeppelin, so he got me tickets to the Paramount to watch a Led Zeppelin tribute band. The show was really great and probably the closet thing I will get to seeing them live. :(

My one and only valentine memory was getting to school in grade 12 and finding a really awesome gift in my locker. In my locker was a car model of my dream car (Audi R8) with a customized license plate to match my current license plate. It identical to my license including the plate # and the province and design. It was also an inside joke that the one we saw in the parking lot two months back was mine. It was really cool to see. Not only that but there was a note for me to go to the library and look on page 82 of the book of the last movie we saw. Which was actually Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix. Inside this book was a note saying this entitles me to receive a package being held at the office. I go to the office and get this package. Inside was a bunch of hockey cards each with a letter written on it. All of these cards were of my favourite team the Calgary Flames of course. There was a hint written on the inside of the package that said to spell out a date. So after hours of figuring this out it spelt out Tuesday March 6th 8:00pm. After seeing the date i realized it was the date of a hockey game for the Calgary Flames. I then got a text saying to go back to my locker. And sitting in my locker were two tickets to the game on that date at that time. Best gift ever!

So last year on valentines day I took my girlfriend out to a a very nice, expensive restaurant in downtown D.C. Dinner was delicious (as it should have been considering the cost). Anyway so the waitress brings me the check and I hand her my check card. She comes back later and tells me that my card was declined! I didn't have enough money on my check card. Luckily my girlfriend had her card with her otherwise I don't know what would have happened... Regardless it turned out to be a great valentines day.

Best v-day ever... All she wanted was to go see the UW vs WSU basketball game on Feb 14th. I picked her up from work, went to a bar to meet up with some friends for drinks and shots. Then she snuck in 6 airplane bottles of booze... and we drank at the game. I don't even remember who won, but we had a hell of a time!
