The Best Love Songs Ever

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you’re having a great day, no matter if you’re staying in (like me!) or doing something extra special.

Since Paul and I are planning on doing Valentine’s Day/anniversary stuff over President’s Day weekend, today has been a pretty normal day for me. But he did stop by on his way to basketball to drop off a couple things.

White roses are my favorite!

I love having flowers in my room. It just makes me so much more cheerful. Does anyone else feel like that too?

He also got me a box of chocolate, and I know I’m going to be digging into it real soon.

I also got Paul a small box of his favorite chocolate, Ferrero Rocher, and some fun, personalized M&Ms.

He loved them!

Tonight’s going to be pretty low-key for me. I got a 3.5-mile run done on the treadmill, and I’m ready to crawl into my bed and watch a fun chick flick. Something cute has to be on!

Also, kind of random, but I was thinking about love songs today, and I wanted to post some of my favorites. Hope you find a couple you enjoy:

1. K-Ci and JoJo – All My Life – I remember dancing to this song at my first dance in 6th grade!
2. Led Zeppelin – All of My Love – This my favorite Zeppelin song, and the horns are so beautiful.
3. Cure – Lovesong – I’m really not into ’80s music, but this one is too good to pass up.
4. Johnny Cash – Ring of Fire – The man in black really knows what he’s talking about on this one.
5. Goo Goo Dolls – Iris – This band has really fallen off since the ’90s, but this song will always be a good one.
6. The Pretenders – I’ll Stand By You – I love her voice in this song!
7. The Zombies – Time of the Season – A fun, old-fashioned love song.
8. Temptations – My Girl – Everyone needs to know this one.
9. Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On – Sexual references aside, you know you just want to jam to this song.
10. Rolling Stones – Wild Horses – A perfect wedding song.
11. Percy Sledge – When a Man Loves a Woman – Old school love songs are so much better than the new ones!
12. Oasis – Wonderwall – One of the best ’90s songs, by far.
13. Sonny & Cher – I Got You Babe – When I was a kid, I could do the best Cher impression. Now…not so much.
14. Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child o’ Mine – Not all love songs have to be slow!
15. Stone Temple Pilots – Interstate Love Song – One of my favorite tunes ever!
16. U2 – With or Without You – I really don’t like U2 at all, but this one is a classic, especially when they played it in Friends.
17. Pearl Jam – Black – The opening of this song is ridiculously good.
18. Air – Playground Love – Ever since I saw “The Virgin Suicides,” I’ve loved this one.
19. The Plimsouls – The Oldest Story in the World – Two words: “Valley Girl.”
20. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – How could you not love this song?
21. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Don’t Forget Me – Probably my favorite song of all-time.
22. The Wallflowers – One Headlight – My second favorite 🙂
23. Seal – Kiss from a Rose – So beautiful.

Wow, I did way more than I meant to, and I’m sure I missed a ton of my favorites! There are just way too many good love songs out there.


I wasn’t going to post about lunch, but I just need to say that I love avocados.

I sliced up 1/2 an avocado and spread it on some Ezekiel bread. On the other side I had some Swiss cheese. This sandwich was scrumptious, and the bread was really tasty. I love the crust!

I had to get those veggies in!

What’s your favorite love song? Or do you have 10 million, like me? Avocados…yay or nay?

    Those flowers are beautiful…how exciting! And your list = dead on!! I agree One Headlight is one of the best songs…ever.

    I really love “Stolen” by Dashboard Confessional, mostly because it plays in the background of a cute Scrubs episode that always gets me; “Suga Suga” by Baby Bash because I’m a sucker for pop-y hip hop, and “At Last” by Etta James because it is is the ultimate romantic movie/ wedding song 🙂

  10. Maryann says:

  11. I got a dozen red roses! I love white, pink, and red! 🙂

    Avocados are a HUGE yes!!!

  12. I’m not a huge fan of avocados but I’m pretty sure they’ll grow on me eventually 😉

    and if i listed all the love songs I like… it’d take me like half my life. I’ll spare you. 😉

    I love flowers. I don’t get it when girls get upset to get flowers on a holiday. Sure, it’s been doen a thousand times. Wanna know why? Cuz it WORKS! Flowers are beautiful, and I love them so much. White roses are definitely up there in my favorites, but purple tulips, and purple roses are my top two. (I love purple!)

    Avocado, yum!!! Up until a few years ago I thought I hated avocado. Then one of my friends smeared some on a piece of wheat bread and a sprinkle of salt and now I’m hooked! It’s also really good with a little balsamic. 🙂

    Favorite love song ever: Crazy Love – Van Morrison

  27. Sweet guy! I love having fresh flowers around too – just makes me happy!

  28. I adore flowers!!! They really brighten up my mood whenever I look at them, especially if they’re from Chris. 😀

  30. I love ‘cados! I love putting them in nearly anything!! Guac is for sure one of my favorite foods.

  31. Those flowers are beautiful!!!!! Avocados are a definate yay!!!! I think my fav. love song is always changing. I’ll hear one and say it’s my favorite until I hear and remember the next! Hope you had a great day girl!

  33. I’m all about staying in. If avocados are involved then even better, I love avocados!

  34. Kat says:

  35. cbrady3 says:

    I love The Way You Look Tonight by Eric Clapton and This Year’s Love by David Gray!

  36. Avocados are THE BEST! Especially in chocolate mousse form! 😉

    And it’s all about ‘When you say nothing at all’. I am SUCH a girl and well up every time I hear it! 😛

  37. My favorite is You and Me by DMB.

    I wish I liked avocados! They’re so good for you and such a easy addition to meals, but I just don’t like the taste.

  38. dressed2dish says:

    Pretty flowers! I am obsessed with avocados and making GUAC! 🙂

  39. I’m always so jealous of your peppers! I still can’t find good hearty ones that arent mushy or super overpriced! hurry up spring!!!!!!!

    those personalized mm’s make suuuuch cute gifts! good job! =)

  40. Love your list of Love songs!! I used to be able to play Black on the guitar like a rock star 😉 Pearl Jam was my OBSESSION in middle school. I had Eddie Vedder all over my walls!!! And “All My Life” reminds me of junior year in high school. Good times!

    i had avocado in my salad tonight. They are so amazing

  41. runyogarepeat says:

    Those flowers are so pretty! I got some too, and I love having them in my room. I love how all your love songs are older (90s or before), those are some of my favs too. Avocados = major yes!
