My Love Story

Linking up with From Mrs to Mamma
this morning for some Valentine's Day loving! 
I know I don't normally share all this stuff from my life, but I figured it'd be a fun little post! 

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
1 year and 7 months
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
On a summer night my friends & I went out for a birthday & we were having a great time dancing, drinking, laughing when Chris asked me to dance. I said no. Well, after a little bit he actually asked me again to dance. After getting approval from my friends I danced with him. He kissed me before the night was over. Well, fast forward about 3 weeks. Chris & I texted randomly on & off but I was getting bored because he would text me once or maybe twice a day then never respond back to me. So finally I texted him & said stop texting me unless you're going to ask me on a date. He did. Date=fail. We went to dinner & I ran into a friend from college. Well I went to give him a hug & I guess Chris was thinking, what the heck!? Later in the date I decided to tell him what I thought was funny (what hippos do when they're mad)... Well, Chris didn't find this funny one bit. It was a terrible date, just awful (we both agree on this). He gave me a kiss goodnight & I was thinking okay never seeing him again. Well, he (to my surprise) texted me the next day. I decided to give him one more chance, invited him out with my intern friends & they loved him & I decided I really liked him too. The rest is history. Well, sorta. Last November he learned the army was moving him to Savannah, Georgia. I still had a whole semester of college to finish in Tacoma, Washington. I decided to move after college as long as we survived long distance. Which we did... & now here I am. In a house, living with him in warm & sunny Savannah, Georgia. 
3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We are not married, but truthfully, yes I would hope he is someday when it's right for us both.
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?
Honestly since I look at wedding blogs on the daily I have no clue where I would want to get married. Maybe a plantation, maybe the beach, maybe a farm, maybe a mansion, who knows. But it will definitely be big! With all my friends from college and my few friends I've made in Savannah! 
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
Pookie, buttercup, sugarplum, babie, poopiehead, monkeyhead, etc. etc. whatever we can think of that makes us both laugh basically.
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. He is very honorable. He is in the army & he takes it very seriously. He is secretive about his job and he loves what he does (working with helicopters). He also has dreams of maybe someday being a pilot. I love that he is ambitious. 2. He does things for me unexpectedly. We saw this awesome door shelf on Pinterest & both loved it. Well, one day while at work he went out, bought a door, bought some tools, & started on it. It's not finished yet but when it is I'll put some pics on here! It's going to look amazing! 
7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
Haha uhhh a surprise? 
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
Well last year I got flowers. But I would say he's none of these. But I could go for some chocolate covered strawberries & a back massage?
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Personally I would love to spend more time at the beach. It doesn't have to be at sunset, it can be anytime of the day. But often we are too tired after work or I work on weekends. I'm hoping this summer though we make it down to Tybee a lot! 
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
African safari!!!!! I really want to go to South Africa really bad! And a cruise! Just travel everywhere I guess! 
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
I have class until 730 & he won't know how late he works until that day. So honestly we have nothing planned & I think instead of doing gifts we are going to save our money since we just moved & are doing a lot of home projects! 
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Oh I'm sure I'll ask for a back massage but that's nothing special since I usually ask for that daily! 
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Telling each other we love each other, joking around, giggling, & not being afraid to make a fool of ourselves. We have become best friends & I think that's made us work. Because we have so much fun together we often want to spend our free time together.
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.

Hope you all have a fabulous Valentine's Day! :)
