Our Love Story


Today I am linking up with Becky who is over at From Mrs. to Mama
You should check her out & follow her life journey on raising her beautiful baby girl & her marriage to her best friend. 


also link up & fill out "What's your love story?"

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Alex & I have been together to date one year, seven months and one day. That is so crazy to think about that and how fast time flies. 


(our first date [ i say it wasn't really a first date but] was a Tim McGraw concert in June of 2010. we started off with grass seats & ended up FRONT row holding hands with Tim.)

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}

.
Well I will be honest with the blog world - Alex and I met on Plenty of Fish (P.O.F) all thanks to my guy best friend Tran. He insisted that I get on the site because he was sick of me dating "losers" and less than 6 months later I met Alex and with in FOUR months we were engaged


(the VERY first night we met)


3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}

Yes Alex & I will be married October 13,2012. This blog was started to follow the wedding process of planning but has turned into much more than that & I am loving ALL of it but the planning of the wedding. Isn't it weird how that worked out?

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?

The wedding will be semi-big, I am shooting for under 125 guest but we will see how that works out considering I come from a big family, and we will be getting married at a golf course in California. Don't worry everyone there will be lots of pictures of the wedding in November or December. 


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



No we really do not have nicknames that stick with each other. Sometimes Alex does call me baby but what guy doesn't call their love that?



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

1. I love how he cares so much about me 
2. I love how he calls just to say hi to me 
3. i love how he randomly surprises me with flowers some days just because he can

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?

Proposal was at Disneyland. Not in the park but in our hotel room. Obviously I said yes (well we think I said Yes) Him nor I truly remember me saying yes but here we are. I do remember telling him that I was going to punch him because I couldn't believe it was happening. Here is the full story of how him & I became a We

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

Well this is our [[FIRST]] valentine's day together so it will be interesting to see what he does. I truly just want to see The Vow but because of Eli I doubt we will be able to go because we do not have a babysitter considering it is a school night for him. 

Last year, I got flowers and a tiny itty bitty bear in the mail & some diamond earring studs but I can't complain considering he was deployed 

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

I would consider myself Both. I know I am difficult. I love sunset & dinner but I am a homebody type of person who loves a good home cooked meal. Poor Alex will forever suffer with these two.

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 to Bora Bora. Just the two of us. No phone. No internet. No work. Just drinks in hand, swimming in the warm water, relaxing, reading, tanning and eating. Sounds like perfection to me. 

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 

This Valentine's day will be just another day for us {I believe - don't quote me but I will def. post about it considering its our first} We will probably eat at home because Eli needs to know what good home cooking is and probably spend it reading and watching TV, but I would LOVE to see The Vow. What girl doesn't want to see that movie?

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

Honestly, the only thing I really want is to see the movie & have a good day with Alex. I even asked for a bow ring but I won't be upset if I do not get it. I love anything blue, purple and bows. 
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 

Trust. You must have trust in yourself & your love to have a strong relationship. Trust is what builds a strong foundation to grow and move forward. & Always remember each day is a new day to change something and start over. 

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
I love Alex foreve because {{without}} the R it means it is never ending
