Our Love Story

I'm linking up with "From Mrs. to Mama" on Our Love Story. I love telling Hubs and Mines story because SO MANY people think we met on we did not.

P.S you should also check out her Valentines Day Giveaways by clicking here!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
In September it will be 4 years!
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
I actually came to Fort Riley, KS to visit a friend who's husband was about to deploy. They wanted to show me around Post and I agreed. We started off at the PX and when we went in through the doors there he was! Dirty white shirt and jeans...buying a bottle of liquor no less (or surprise). I had an instant shock through my body and I blushed as he stared at me. I knew I'd never have the courage to talk to him, so I kept walking when he suddendly struck up a conversation with my friends husband! NUTS! He introduced himself and then he said we should all hang out!
It took some talking into since the boy my friends wanted me to "date" was the hub's roomate! But I seriously was not interested! When the hubs came over it was a party atmosphere and we had a few drinks. While everyone was outside smoking he decided to come in and talk to me, and right there is where we had our first kiss!
We spent as much time as we could together before he deployed, which was only weeks away when I met him, but as you all know by now the rest is history!
3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We've been married 2 years!
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 my hometown in Utah, in the courthouse, 5 days after we got engaged! I wouldnt of had it any otherway!
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
HAHA when we were dating, I used to call him Hot Potato and he called me Yammie Pie...I dont know why we ever did that!
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. He love Evelyn and I more then anything on this earth! He is honestly my hero in many ways! He will do anything to make his girls happy!
7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He proposed on Christmas Morning at his mothers house in California. Apperently my ring was in my stocking that I had been sleeping by the WHOLE time. After I got up to go to the bathroom, we were laying in bed cuddling and I could feel him fidget with something when I finally grabbed his hand and there it was! He whispered in my ear "will you marry me?" and I whispered back "YES!"
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
BOTH! He knows I love flowers! On our first Valentines Day he was in Iraq and I worked for the married girls, and I recived a HUGE pink monkey, red roses and red gerber daisys and tonz of chocolate! Last year I jsut recived roses and chocolate since I was pregnant I didnt even eat the chocolate, it made me sick. But he has given me rose petals, strawberrys and champagne for our Anniversary.
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Pop in a movie! Although I love those romantic moments on the beach we had in Hawaii
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
Travel the world! We both would love to have unlimited funds to do that!
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Well this Valentines Day we have decided to stay in with Evelyn and Put her in bed and do our favorite date night, stay up and play video games together. I am making a red velvet cheesecake and he'll be on the grill making steaks. We do it at least once a month and its our favorite!
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
I hint to a video game I want. Mario Party. But I wouldnt really care if I got it. Its just amazing to be together this year!
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
from a Military Wives perspective...never EVER take advantage to having him home with you. I love the quote that says: Love Like He's Deploying Tomorrow. Its true! We never know when they will come home and tell us that news. I'll never take advantage of him being home ever again.
(deployment day '10)
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
