little love story

I have about a billion and one things I could blog about...my birthday this past weekend, wedding updates, those weddings I went to this winter (that are so far delayed), life in general, a baby shower I'm super duper excited about co-hosting, babies on their way, the list goes on....creativity is swirlling in my head NONstop these days - creativity needed for the real life happenings mentioned above, not so much for blogging...

So with all creativity sucked out of my skull I bring you a fun link up instead!


You can read all about "Our Story" here. But these are the basics!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together? not that long! We officially met in May of 2009 (I think...?) then went on our first date in August of 2010 and after a few months of stupidity on my part our second first date in January of 2011.

 2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?} Technically we officially met through my college boyfriend (we'll call him AH, I really hate the term "ex" bf) I tell people we met through our friend Wade though because it just sounds better...Wade invited me and AH to go out for a friends bday in Houston. Travis was there. End of story (except not hardly!) Although May 09 was our first official meeting, we crossed paths a billion times in college.   

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell} Yep...I'm marrying this guy in 240 days!! EEEEEEEEE!!!!!

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 are getting married at Briscoe Manor near Sugar Land. The venue is stunning.  No other words.  Our wedding will be much, much larger than I ever imagined.  I'm talking big...like the Chinese population.  Apparently being from a small town means you invite well, the whole town.  Doesn't help that he has a gigantic family either.  Let's just say that his side will TRUMP my side (which will practically consist of only my closest friends and family) Either way though, I know when all is said and done there won't be one thing I will want to change.  Having so many people there that love and support us will be incredible! And in my humble opinion I think the party will be completely badass. (I don't have another words for that adjective)

 5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
I call him Trav, T, sometimes Travis, and that's pretty much it.  Babe in text messages from time to time.  He calls me babe and Tiggles (NO idea where that came from) When I think about it, I think the only time he calls me by my name is when I'm not paying attention (frequently, but I am getting better he says!)

 6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
-his loyalty and the way he takes care of everyone/thing around him
-his voice...he should seriously narrorate a show about hunting or fishing or oil
-his size...we will make some LEGIT football players - and he will be the BEST dad!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal? T proposed at my bayhouse in Rockport, TX.  I was a big ole hott mess so the deats are quite vague.  You can read about it here and then read about how I was a complete basket case afterwards here

 
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals? umm neither...T is not a big romatic (in the typical sense of the word anyway) and he def does NOT wear his heart on his sleeve but I'm worried the big baby won't be able to keep it together at the alter...
He's the most passionate man I've ever met but you have to really watch him to see it. It's definitely more in his everyday actions and words.    (not to say I won't possibly get a great gift from him...he's a giver)

 9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch? This really depends on my mood. On a Friday night I'm usually a couch girl but come Saturday I'm all about dinner/beach (except I'd prefer an awesome "doing" date like driving range, a new adventure, a new place, etc)  


10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? HAVE HIS BABIES!!!!


11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. well...we were supposed to be in COSTA FREAKIN RICA.....an extremely generous engagement/wedding gift from this awesome man, Mike he works with...
 
BUT, ever so sadly....it was NOT doable.  There is no way in hell I can take off 4 consecutive days of work with all these days I've already taken off....my kinder babes have to make it to first grade!  Luckily, he said it's an open invite so we're planning on making the trip this summer! (man, to have the life of a man that can just hop on over to Costa Rica and fish on his flippin yacht on the reg...must be tough)

So no plans...we won't be together and Valentine's Day falls right inbetween our birthdays so it's likely we won't do much to celebrate ever. I'd be happy to spend every Feb 14th with take out and a couch with my husband for the rest of my entire life.  

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nope, unless of course he wants to get me diamond stud earring or something amazing! Just kidding, kind of, I was spoiled on my bday. If I could have anything for Valentine's Day I would have the calendar fast forward 235 days!

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. COMPROMISE. Stolen from Brynn but so very true!

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
  True love. I hope this is me and T in 50 years.
