Nancy: You need three different sentences here. You have #2; Would you like to try #s 1 and 3?

Kelsey: Your 3rd entry adds a phrase;your first and second entries add a dependent clause. You can post all your answers in the one post--label them 1, 2, and 3 so it is clear which one is which;-)

#1. On Valentine's Day, I had a surprise.
#3. I had a surprise on Valentine's day.

Nancy: You had the right idea with your first post, but there was only one sentence instead of three. You need to keep the original independent clause in each of the sentences and add to that clause in the manner indicated.
