Our LOVE Story :)

I am linking up with Becky from Mrs to Mama
For a special Valentines Link Up :)

Here we go ....

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?

Andrew and I have been together for 6 years this summer.

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

Andrew and met my freshman year in high school. He was a TA for my class. We both were dating other people so it was nothing.
Andrew went away to college and then my Junior year of high school I was a Teacher Cadet working at an elementary school and his nephew was in the class.
 His sister was the class mom and ask Andrew to deliver pizza to our party and we hit it off.
Next thing we know we were frequenting the gym and then obnoxious lunch places like cookout and taco bell 
( should of known then we were a match made in heaven)
Being long distance it took us a while to build a relationship but by New Years Eve we couldn't get enough of each other
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}

Andrew and I got married on May 21, 2011. We have been married about 9 months :)

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 Andrews hometown church with a reception at our local country club. We had about 170 people so it was about average.

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

I am not a nick-name person, but Andrew does call me his sweet-pea :)

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

Andrew believes I can do anything his willingness to help me with anything I want to accomplish makes me smile.
I love that he has big dreams. He has so much he wants to accomplish and I am lucky to be able to do it with him.
I love that he makes me laugh and smile. We can be completely lazy all day and it will have still been amazing.

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

So it was Easter weekend (in 2010) and Andrew was nice enough to stay in Raleigh with me since I had to work all weekend. It was Friday night and I had to close the salon ( I was a manger of a corporate tanning salon then) so I didn’t get home till like 11. He always waits for me to get home so we could eat dinner together, so the fact that he had dinner ready when I got home didn’t make me suspicious. So we sat down to eat and then he tells me he has to go to the bathroom, but instead he is in my room rummaging around and then goes into the bathroom and comes back. I am just thinking, hes wierd whatever. So we are sitting down eating and me being the huge Facebook stalker that I am, Andrew changes our relationship on Facebook so that it would get my attention ( since of course I was ignoring his other attempts to get my attention), but that kinda failed because I am also kinda nosey so all of a sudden Andrew had like 7 Facebook chats pop up (they were people saying congrats ) so then I wanted to know what they were saying and Andrew had to distract me to look on my computer. Then I saw it and was confused and he pulled the ring out and asked me, and he says I was in a daze and kept saying, OMG is that my ring, can I have it, can I wear it, but to be honest I can’t remember what I was thinking except I was excited so what he said for once is probably true..

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

Flowers :)

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

Both. We love to travel and see new places but if we did it as much as we wanted we'd live in a box. When we are at home watching a movie and laying with our pups.. its perfect

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

We are currently planning our 1st anniversary trip. Either Hilton Head Island or a cruise. Not for sure yet so I can't wait to celebrate this one year milestone.

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

Valentines day is so close to my bday ( 9 days earlier) so we do something simiple. WE are going to try a new resturant we have been dying to try and then come home to watch a movie and relax. Maybe ill pull out some betty crocker and make a nice dessert.
( I am not making any promises since its on a tuesday)

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

Nope just a date night out to dinner with my hubs :)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.

Andrew and I working to build a relationship that is more God centered. We have been church hunting and reading our Bibles more and its been a bonding experience.
We are big communicators. We talk about everything and we don't do anything unless we are agree and we are committed to accomplishing the goal together or supporting each other.
Love with all you got. I love Andrew more than anything and I tell hime 100 times a day. I think telling someone how you feel is the most important thing :)

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


  1. What a sweet love story! I love that picture of y'all!

  2. What a nice lowdown on your romantic story! My husband is also called Andrew and is a 'flowers guy'. I know this because he cannot keep a secret and told me yesterday he is sending flowers to me at work for V Day (!!)
