Valentines Day 2012

Linking up with this fun blog in honor of Valentines Day!!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Five years in August! Holy moly! I can't believe I just typed that! WOW!! 

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Josh and I both joined a dating website for separate reasons then finding someone... I joined because they had a personality test and it was free (the psych major coming out) & it I was fulfilling a promise to my grandmother (I'll have to blog about that sometime) ... He joined because he seen a band he liked was actually a member, he claims curiosity. He seen my profile and seen that one of my favorite scriptures were one of his favorites. And he said I was BEAUTIFUL :) . So he sent me a pre-made message (we were both using the free trail). I checked my email very frequently and always had messages about my "Matches" from the test. So i would just delete them. I almost deleted the one from JLAW (Josh). I thought well lets see what he said... I went on there and sent on back. I seen he was pretty cute. I liked what his profile said. He sent one back and changed his about me section telling me his email. Well being the geeky guy he is he typed it in a way the web site didn't catch it! =) Well, I decided to do the same. And I waited. It wasn't very long, I believe it was the same day. We emailed for about a week (July 07) then exchanged numbers. When we talked the first time he was so country I couldn't understand him, he says I talked too fast. Some how we communicated and he promised to call later. And HE did. After about month (8/4/07) we went our first date. He picked me up at my grandparents house. We went to his company picnic (a job he had only a short time). On the way there we got lost, his car started smoking, but he bought me a drink. (the reason this was so sweet a guy had never really treated me so sweetly before) There I met his best friend and spouse. Everyone kept asking how long we had been married! So after our TEN hour first date (we kept finding stuff to do) he took me home. After that weekend we were together every weekend. And... we fell pretty hard very quickly... 
8/4 First date
8/11 Met my parents
8/18 became officailly bf & gf :) (He asked me if we could change our myspace profiles HA!!)
9/23 became engaged
12/1 Married :)

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We have been married four years ,2 months, and 12 days :)

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 were married in the church of our (then) pastors families church. In Knoxville where we reside. It was a medium size wedding. It was everything I wanted it to. I had my closest friends and family. All together I think it was about 150. Our reception was at  a community center. My mom and grandmother did a great job of decorating!!

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!

Yes, while we were dating Josh told me I was all that and a bag of chips, but not just any chips but something good like Funyuns! LOL! So funyungrl was created... and Jbooty was created by my bestfriend and hubby b/c they insisted he needed a nick name. 
Mostly we call eachother babe... he calls me lover, love, sweetheart... my heart melts still <3

Grooms Cake! It was a surprise we loved it!

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.

His big heart. His devotion to me. His love for God. 

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
It was perfect! My bestfriend and her hubby came up to TN to meet Josh. And we had the best weekend. Well Josh and I had decided that we wanted to get married, however everything was going so fast I was a bit scared. So I was expecting a proposal with my bestie here. (I was there when was proposed to) So when they left I was like OK he is waiting. It was on a Sunday, he wanted to go somewhere together for some alone time instead of going to church. After some pursausing we headed to a park with a lake I had never been to. So we get out walk around.. and walk... and walk. Josh gets a phone call supposedly an annoying one  ( there was some scheming going on). I'm ready to sit down, he is like no we have to keep walking... LOL

We walk toward the lake and around a curve in the sidewalk and he starts walking toward this tree it has candles lit all around on the ground, flower petals, and out steps my bestie from around the tree with a cd player play "say you love me" from Phantom of the Opera (one of my favorites). I was so SHOCKED! I turned around to look at him and he was on his knee! AND it was at SUNSET!! Know is that not the sweetest or what!! 

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?

He is def flowers.. and notes... He just sent me flowers Thursday! =) They were beautiful! 

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?

I'm a spend time on something and I love it! To me its all about the thoughtfulness. When he plans something anything it makes me feel very loved!!

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

I would love to go on a cruise!! And possibly Europe. And I would love to be a mommy and daddy. =)

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Our plans were to have a romantic, relaxing day at home. BUT he is very sick so we will be home.. just don't know how romantic its going to be! lol

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?

Thoughtfulness.. He already knows that though! lol

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.\
Communication. Communication. And always put them first. If you both have a self-less love, imagine how strong and great your relationship would be. Choose your spouse, not your parents, friends, or what ever. AND TALK THINGS THROUGH!! 

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