Our LOvE Story: Valentines special

FromMrstomoma is hosting a link up for Valentines about how you met your spouse! So here is our love story of those that don't know...

** Scrapbook photo from the night we met**

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We had a hard time calculating that this year! We met on NYE 2003/2004 .. so I think that NYE makes it 8 years! The whole NYE thing makes it tricky.

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We met at a New Years Eve party in Nashville. One of his frat brothers invited me to drive up from Alabama and I was terrified of going to a party several hours away when I only knew 1 person! My friend Linzy talked me in to it and it was a great time. Incidentally, that guy who invited me (D.O.) is responsible for Erik and I being together and then we returned the favor introducing him to my Kappa big sis and they got married too!  Lots of people could be credited with our love story for various reasons but those are the bones of it!

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? 
We got married exactly 2 years after we met so that means we have been married for 6 years now! 

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?  If not, where would you like to get married? And will it be big or small?
We got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico . It was small and amazing. Just my parents, his parents and his 2 siblings were there.  They played Rod Stewart as I walked down the aisle which was hilarious.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
100%!  I don't think we ever use real names, for anyone in this house. I call him "Bubbies" or "bubs" and he calls me "snuggles" or "bubbles". ( gag me I know. I had no idea how corny we are till I typed that out)

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
hmm well thats gonna be hard to put into words but I think first would be his sense of humor. My bubbies is one weird dude, and is very dramatic and funny and silly, and I think it keeps us young. I roll my eyes at him about 97% of the day, but I love every second of it (almost).

I love how thoughtful he is. That drew me in right away when we met because he did the sweetest most thoughtful little things for me always. and he still does them now, just not as often. BUt what is strange about that is the anticipation is fun and surprising. I never know when he is gonna celebrate a holiday, be romantic or if he is gonna ignore it. HA  It is always a total surprise and generally a VERY good surprise when he does do something for them. In general i would just say he tries to and wants to make me happy, every day and I like that my happiness is important to him. 

I could use my 3rd reason to tell y'all about what an awesome dad he is and how I love that about him, but thats just a given and too lame, since this is a survey about us and not peebs I will say my 3rd fav thing about bubbie cakes is that he enjoys my friends. I like that he knows all of my friends, and enjoys talking to them, hanging with them, and just in general shares those relationships with me and takes an interest in my interests.

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He proposed to me on the beach at sunset and was so nervous he started speaking in tongues. It was very interesting/memorable! 

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
None of the above really. He is more like Lillies from Fresh Market and hockey pucks. HA This will be the 1st year that we are not at a Hockey Game for Vday in several years. 
** another scrapbook photo of the year he made me a pink cake HIMSELF!**

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
BOTH! I am currently dying for a beach get away! I wish we could just up and head to mexico right now and take peebs too! 

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
ha wells this is for reals crazy but I think i would love for us to go over seas and do mission work as a family. Erik could use his medical skills and i had a heart for mission work and I think Peebs could learn lots of neat stuff.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.

um.. i have not gotten that far in life yet. I am not a planner ahead type of girl. I know bubs is working and that is all I know. I did decorate the house for Vday and that counts for something because it sure is cute!

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
No, Cant say that I am. My bubs went all out for our anniversary so I think big gifts get to stretch far.

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 
hmm. Hard to say just one thing. I think lots of things, but probably in our relationship our greatest asset is that we picked just the right person, meaning we both in our hearts are committed to us and working through whatever comes our way. We genuinely appreciate each other.

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.

These 2 jokers right here:
( more old pics. I tried to dye my hair dark at some point when we were dating and it would NOT stick, so it would fade out and leave me with reddish hair.. ) Not one single person I knew liked my hair dark. 

I have a good time, on a daily basis with my valentine and that is what counts. As I type this he is in the kitchen singing " The right stuff" by NKOTB. Keeping it real... and funny as usual.
