Old School Blogging: Take 2

by Stacey


So earlier today I posted what turned out was a rough draft of this post. I had copied and pasted the text from my friend Shana and an old version of my post went out. Thank goodness, a friend called and asked if there was something I wanted to tell her. Had I taken off with a man named Jim since we had last talked? Umm no. Jim is Shana’s husband not mine! So here we go again, hopefully with all the proper text. And thank you to Shana for sharing your inspiration but not your husband.

Do you like to get A)chocolates B) flowers C) a sweet card or D) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Chocolate all the way. Although I do still love it when Rob comes home with flowers for Valentine’s Day and my birthday. This year, he bought one rose for me and each of the girls which I thought was great.

Do you believe in “love at first sight”? Did it happen to you?

I do believe in love at first sight but it certainly was not the way that Rob and I got together. We went to college together, shared many of the same friends and knew each. But we never dated. In fact, Rob thought I was a little bit mean. Although I still stand by the fact that I was shy 🙂

Do you believe love can conquer all things?

I think that love along with patience, listening and empathy can take you a pretty long way. Maybe this is the bit of the cynic in my but I’m afraid I think that time is what really heals all wounds.

What is one of the main things you love about your significant other?

His commitment to me and the girls. Rob puts us first before all other things. It is pretty great to have a relationship like that in this life. I am confident that he would drop anything and everything if we needed him.

If you could have the perfect date what would you and your loved one do?

I’m a pretty simple date. These days I really just like to go to the movies. I just love the chance to sit and get completely lost in a story that isn’t mine.

What’s the first type of chocolate you hope for when you reach into a box of chocolates?

I really like the the milk chocolate one with the little crispies or anything with caramel and nuts. In fact, I don’t love the box of chocolate. Sorry Forest but I like to know what I am getting. Bring me a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and I’ll be yours for life.

If someone did that “Say Anything” boombox thing outside your window, would you be into it, or call the police?

Gosh, I fell really unromantic but I my first reaction was that I would call the police. I’m a little bit disappointed in myself but there it is.

Favorite celebrity couple?

Prince William and Kate Middleton

    Ok, I am cracking up about Shana’s post being in your draft. How confusing!
    I’m also so happy to see you participate because I wrote some of these questions as a co-host so it’s fun!

    I love the format of Old School Blogging. SO much fun. Reminds me of the spiral notebooks we used to pass in middle school!

    I love reading these posts of yours. And how hilarious about the first draft–thank goodness for friends with eagle eyes! Your husband sounds like a great man, and very similar to mine. Funny about the Say Anything answer–I’d probably call the police too EXCEPT if it was John Cusack. I always dreamed I’d have that happen to me. Le sigh…

  4. The older I get the less impressed I would be with John Cusack with a boom box. I thought it was so romantic in high school! Now, I would totally call the police 😉 Sleep is too precious these days with little ones who get me up half the time! Although I might let it slide if it was actually John Cusack…I still adore him!

    That posting glitch sounds SO like something that I’d do. I always copy and paste these from Elaine so it could totally happen to me too 🙂 Isn’t it amazing how much appeal a simple dinner and movie date holds these days?!  I’m already looking forward to seeing Divergent with Jim in a couple weeks. It truly is the little things … it took me almost 40 years to realize that, but there we have it …
