Our Love Story {Link Up}

I'm linking up with one of my favorite mama bloggers Becky over at From Mrs. to Mama.

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been together for just over 11 years!
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Well, we actually started talking online. I messaged him and after a month of talking, we decided to finally meet. He worked at Target as a security gaurd, so I took the kids I nannied for at the time shopping with me at his Target. When we walked in, he wasn't there, like he said he'd be, so we shopped around for awhile {little did I know him and his friend were watching us on the security cameras} Then when we were headed out, after grabbing the kids and Icee, he was at the door and we stopped to talk, until the kids got restless. He gave me his number and the rest is history.

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 for 7 1/2 years.

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 at his home church, also the church that I worked at around that time we got married, and we had a big wedding. {Go big or go home}

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
We have a couple...He calls me Bel and Babe, I don't really use any for him anymore, I used to call him Bug and Pumpkin, but haven't recently.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. He is patient and funny
2. He loves me for me, preggo or not, sweats or dressy!
3. He supports me 100% and is my best friend!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
We went to the St. Paul Ice Castle (2008, the last year they had one) when it was 20 degrees below zero {no, I am not exaggerating} and after waiting for his cousin and wife to show up, we took one more loop around the place, ended up in the middle and he got down on one knee with a Ring Pop and asked me to marry him. I didn't think he was very funny and as I was about to 'rip him a new one,' he pulled out the ring and started saying 100 perfect things that made my heart melt, then (as his cousin was taping and taking pictures) asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Not really either, he usually does a cute card from him and one from the kids and sometimes I get flowers, but I am not really a flower girl (they die)
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
I really love just staying in and watching a movie and cuddling on the Love Sac. If we do go out, dinner and a movie is usually what we do. I wouldn't mind a picnic on the beach at sunset now and then though {hint hint babe}

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
I actually would love to jump out of a plane with my hubby, if I had enough 'balls' to, but since that will probably never happen, I would love to travel to Italy sometime with just him and I.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 
We haven't talked about plans yet, but maybe a fun dinner with the kids on Valentines day and then have a date night later in the week. (I am not one for fighting crowds on busy holidays)

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Since we are having a baby in a few short weeks, and I have been trying to get stuff together for baby boy, that we need, but if he wants to get me something practical, I'd love a linen closet in the kids bathroom (who am I kidding, once you have a house and kids, practical gifts are the way to go)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 
I'd say communication and just being best friends!
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
