What's Your Love Story?

Becky over at FromMrsToMama is having a fun love story link-up. I totally love her blog and her beautiful little girl! I am definitely waiting for her to post her house tour. From the sneak peaks she has posted it looks amazing!! I definitely recommend checking out her blog!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
A little over 8 years!! Chris and I started dating our Senior year 
of high school and have been together ever since!
(I can't believe I am posting this picture but it is from high school...)

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We met through one of our mutual friends, Matt. Him and Chris have been friends since they were little and Matt and I met freshman year of high school. Matt and I worked together at Roadhouse. Him and Chris were going golfing and Matt invited his then girlfriend. He also invited me so that I could meet Chris and it's all history from there!

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry?
We have been married for 8 months and a few days :-)! June 4th, 2011 is a day that I will never forget!

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 Magnolia, TX at a venue called Ashelynn Manor. As soon as I found it online, I knew it was the place we would get married!

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
We really don't have names for each other. He calls me Alli and I call him babe. Boring I know!

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
I love his sense of humor, his determination when he wants something, and the fact that he loves and cares about me!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
It was amazing! We are a very laid back couple and that is exactly how he proposed. I knew it was coming sometime soon and didn't think he could surprise me. It was a Thursday and a friend of mine and I went to get pedicures. I then went by the mall and eventually went home. Chris was already home when I got there and asked what was for dinner. I was craving grilled cheese and that is exactly what we were going to have... so I thought. I went upstairs and changed into my pajamas and then started making the grilled cheese. I was not paying attention to what he was doing. Sometime while I was prepping to make the sandwiches, he went upstairs. He started calling my name and in my head I was thinking really, you want me to come up there while I am making YOU dinner. So whatever, I went upstairs and when I got to the top of the steps, I saw him down on one knee in his study. I could not believe what I was seeing and burst into tears (happy of course). I ran over to him and said yes! I cried more and kissed and loved on him. I then remembered the grilled cheese on the stove...ran downstairs and they were burn't. He told me to go change. He had made dinner reservations at a very nice restaurant. Like I said, very low key and very us. I am so glad it happened at home, just the two of us. It was a very special moment and I will cherish the memory forever!! 

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
Neither! Which is fine because neither am I! He has given me flowers a few times in our relationship but that's not really us. 

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Definitely a pop a movie in and relax on the couch kinda couple! The beach is not our favorite place but we enjoyed our honeymoon of course. Most weekends we have something to do so when we have a night with nothing to do we enjoy time together just us!

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
This was hard to narrow down because I want to do so many things with him. I would love to go sky diving with him but he says that will never happen! I am scared to death of it but know we could do it together!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
No plans! & I hope it stays that way!! We will probably make a nice dinner at home and enjoy each others company. 

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nope, we don't really celebrate Valentine's day... I think it is kinda silly. We get each other just because gifts sometimes but don't normally celebrate V-day. I think we celebrated the first and maybe second year we were together...

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
COMMUNICATE! If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that we are building a home. I think we have avoided MANY fights by being able to communicate and compromise well. 

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

Leave a comment if you have done this post as well, I would love to go read it!! I hope everyone has a special Valentine's day celebrating however you would like!
