Happy V-Day!


MOOD STATUS: "Happy". Had a nice dinner out Friday night and will be going out again for lunch with the hubby today. :)


Hey, all! Happy Valentine's Day!!

In honor of old Cupid, I'm making this a short and sweet post. I want to get my P90x out of the way, write a little, then meet the hubby for a nice Valentine's Day lunch out. Woo-hoo!!
In you were wondering, here a few of my romantic favs:

My Favorite Romantic Books:

1) Nora Roberts: Born In Ice and Jewels of the Sun.
2) Charlotte Bronte: Jane Eyre
3) Susan Elizabeth Phillips: Honey Moon

My Favorite Romantic Songs:
1) "Our Love is Here to Stay"
2) "Fall"
3) "(How Little it Matters) How Little We Know"

My Favorite Romantic Movies:

2)Last of the Mohicans
3)Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth BBC one)



My Favorite Romantic Getaways:
1) Cape May, NJ
2) Marblehead, MA

And here's that song "Fall" by Clay Walker. I've been listening to it a lot before writing on my recent work in progress. It's very sigh worthy. :)

Happy Valentines Day, Jennifer!

Funny, I just watched Jane Eyre for the first time last night. A&E version starring Cieran Hinds as Mr. Rochester. I think I swooned.

My husband love Last of the Mohicans but I can only watch it every once in a while because I get too upset. Very powerful. Have fun at lunch!

I have Made of Honor on my DVR to celebrate the holiday!!!

This was such a cute post!!

I love Made of Honor! I also love Colin Firth, but believe it or not I haven't seen his version of Pride and Predjudice. I need to rent that.

Happy Valentine's Day!

OOH, I love the song "Fall." I prefer Kimberly Locke's version though.

Happy Valentine's Day and have a wonderful lunch :)

Lovely! I'm hoping for a romantic meal with my hubby too or I'll settle for calling in Chinese. Food not the people. ;) Still loving the fudge. And do you mind me asking why Georgie on His mind isn't available for Kindle? I'd reaaaaaallllllly love that. =)

Oops sorry for the double post! (And now triple ;)

Amanda said...

Fav romatic movie: Shakespeare in Love! :D

Susan R. Mills said...

Have a wonderful day!

Wow, so many good choices from you and your commenters!

As for me... my favorite romantic book would probably be JANE EYRE, too - although I'm also a big fan of WIDE SARGASSO SEA.

My favorite romantic song? That's a tough one - although I REALLY love Harry Nilsson's "Without You" - in fact, I'm listening to it right now in honor of your V-Day post.

As a big sucker for romantic comedies, I find it even harder to answer the movie question - but the ones that I watch repeatedly would have to be LOVE ACTUALLY, THE HOLIDAY, DOC HOLLYWOOD, WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, and WHEN HARRY MET SALLY.

As for favorite romantic getaways, that's a little easier (given that I'm a travel writer). In the U.S., I'd say Santa Barbara, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and the Florida Keys. Abroad, that would have to be Venice, Italy - for sure.

*sigh* I do love Clay Walker. And those are great Nora Roberts choices. :-)

Laura Martone said...

Oh, shoot. I forgot to second your love for LAST OF THE MOHICANS and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (definitely the Colin Firth one - ooh, so dreamy). Sorry, Jennifer!

Len Lambert said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Jennifer! Came by to say hello! :)

Karen Akins said...

Ahh, Last of the Mohicans. Sigh. I also love the 2005 P&P version (though in different ways as the 1995). And Say Anything. Love that movie.

Favorite literary couple...Anne & Gilbert.

I love the movie An Officer and a Gentleman. That last scene is something else.
