Homefront Round Up #2

I am a day late on writing up this week's Homefront Round Up.  It was an insane day yesterday in this house.

This week's questions:

1. Do you like to celebrate Valentine's Day or do you cringe at the thought of Cupid?
         I'm sort of indifferent to the holiday.  My husband and I may exchange a card and something small, but that is usually it.  I have never been that into this holiday, it almost feels like a competition of who got the best gift and shown the most love.  I don't enjoy competitiveness.  And my husband shows me tremendous love on a daily basis. But yes, it is nice to get those flowers - but I LOVE flowers and don't get them often so an excuse to spend a little money outside of our norm expenses is nice.
2. Are you a flowers or candy kind of person? Or do you prefer something handmade?
       I'm a flowers girl.  I buy my own candy, and am more picky on what I like depending on my mood that day.  Flowers are my favorite thing to have in a house, and usually never have them due to the budget.  
3. What's your most memorable Valentine's Day story?
       I don't think I really have one.  But yesterday was pretty special.  My husband is deployed, and he sent a bouquet of red roses with 2 while lilies (my fave) and he sent a beautiful, bright, colorful bouquet with a teddy bear for our daughter.  She misses him a lot, and took that bear to bed after yelling out "Thank you Daddy!"  Shoot, she even woke up from a dead sleep at 3am because that bear fell on the floor.
