Love Story Link Up

Becky over @ From Mrs. to Mama is hosting the "What's Your Love Story" link up, and I thought what a great way to get all in the lovey dovey mood for Valentine's Day, right?

1. How long have you and your significant other been togetherWe met in September 2004, but didn't make it "official" until December 2006.  So I will say a little over 5 years.

2. How did you meet?  Oh, good Lord, I can't believe that I am writing this... I used to work for Jason's Best Friend and had actually met him a few times, but I usually had my hair up in a pony tail, glasses on, and not very attractive clothing.  And we never really interacted much. So, one night we were all at a party and he introduced himself to me, and I replied "We've met before" and explained who I was.  His reply was "Well, you don't look like THAT at work!"  Charming, right?!?!  But, it worked.  I was hooked, and so was he! :)

3. If married, how long have you been married? We were married October 10, 2009.  So, almost 2 1/2 years now.

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding? We were married in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, on the beach, with a completely outside reception.  We originally thought that it would be a typical size destination wedding, but we ended up sharing our special day with 125 of our family and friends. And it was absolutely perfect.

5. Do you have any nicknames that you call one another?  B, he calls me "Little Girl" and I call him "Old Man" {there's 6 years between us}, babe, baby, hun, honey, he calls me punkin'.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.  His amazingly positive, cheerful, and infectious personality.  The completely heart melting way that he loves his girls {Gwen & I :)}.  OBVIOUSLY his good looks!

7. Tell us how he proposed.  In front of both of our families at our first Christmas party together.  He began thanking everyone from coming and then turned to me and got on one knee. It was such a fun night and a great way to celebrate!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals? Jason is the flowers, nice dinner, romantic night out type guy.  And I love it. ;)

9. Are you a sunset on the beach kind of girl, or the pop a movie in and relax on the couch? I used to be a SUNSET girl all the time, but now, I could do either.  And I HATE leaving our little girl, so I've become more of a "drink wine and watch a movie" girl.

10. Tell us one thing that you would like to do with your significant other. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? I would love to travel with Jason, like Greece, Italy, Ireland, many islands... just see the world... when our kids are all grown and stuff.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing this Valentine's Day.  Well, being that it is on a Tuesday, we will spend the night making dinner and hanging with the most important person in our lives. Duh, Gwen, obviously. 

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's Day? Nope, but I DO like sweet surprises {hint, hint, wink, wink}.  Actually instead of expensive flowers that die way too quickly, I'd rather flowers from Shop-Rite that last a long time.  Or even better, and Edible Arrangement... mmmm.

13. Give us on piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.  BOOZE. haha. Relax, peeps, I am mostly totally kidding. :)  I would say honesty, understanding, and spontanaity.  And to know that if you don't grow with the relationship, you will eventually grow apart.

14. Show us a picture of what love means.
I've got a few ;)

I love you, Jason.  My life is better because you are a part of it!
Happy, happy Friday!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend planned!
