it's a love story, baby just say yes...

i have jumped on the band wagon to link up with becky over at frommrstomoma!!


1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
billy and i started dating 6 years ago...
{our first picture together}

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
billy and i actually met at a bar!  i went with a friend that i hadn't ever gone out with before and she introduced us.  for me it was love at first site, something about his smile and eyes  caught my eye instantly! even before he walked over! and he was so sweet, he bought us all shots, ha!  us gals had gotten to the bar really late as it was a last second casual night turned into a lets go to the bar night. we were only at the bar an hour before close so i wasn't intoxicated at all, my mind was clear as could be.  on the way home i asked my friend for his number when we left the bar and i texted him that night!  we texted back and forth for quite a while and we decided to hang out the following night!  he came over to my house to watch a movie {little miss sunshine} and we had wine {from a box}.   i can still remember exactly what he was wearing when i met him at the bar and i remember what he wore the first time he came over!  he came over an hour later than he said he was going to so i was all worried but everything worked out perfect.  from then on we we were official, we hung out every single night! :)  

3. How long have you been married? 
we have been married for a year and a half - august 14, 2010

{our wedding}

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 my parents backyard!  it was a very small wedding with only both of our immediate families.  my parents and siblings and his parents and his sister and her family. the wedding was short and sweet AND totally perfect! i couldn't have imagined it to be any better {except having my nephew there}.  one of billy's great friends married us, he got ordained just for the occasion.  we all hung out for a few hours after the 5 minute ceremony, had dinner and a few cocktails.  
{cheers to spending forever together}

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
i almost always call billy honey, or daddyB, BB, daddy bear.....billy doesn't really have nick-names for me, sometimes he calls me momma bear and once in a great while calls me baby.  

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. he is the best daddy i could ever ask for for cullen, i completely admire him for how he is with our baby boy.  
2. he is a dreamer {me a realist} and i think this really balances us out.  if it weren't for him being the dreamer that he is i wouldn't be a stay at home mom right now.  he works so incredibly hard for our family and i will be forever greatful for him!  i think along with being a dreamer another word that would describe him is confident, if he wasn't confident in himself he wouldn't be running the business he is running right now.  i believe in all he does as well and i think he does everything he does for us which shows me and reminds me daily just how much he loves us.
3. his sense of humor!  billy can always make me laugh and smile!  i absolutely LOVE that about him! he is silly and goofy, he dances and sings, he is just a fun guy to be around. and it also doesn't hurt that he isn't too hard on the eyes....i will forever be attracted to my husband. love his face {and butt}!
overall, billy's personalty and my personalty work out just great. do we have a perfect relationship, no but who does! we know how to push each others buttons but we know how to have fun and appreciate and respect each other!  

7. Tell us how he proposed? 
billy proposed to me in our basement! billy went to my parents house and asked for permission while i was out running errands, he had my mom, dad and sister all in tears.  of course they approved. i had no idea he went over there or was planning to ask for permission. i got home around 6 and him and I talked and had a drink and snacks until about 8 and then he brought me downstairs where I have a "vision board" which is a poster board of a collage of pictures of the goals and dreams you want in your life. he talked about it and how thankful he was to have me all the while fighting the tears, it was very emotional, then he got down on his knee and i started crying, then he asked. i, of course, said yes ;)
it was very sweet and couldn't have been more perfect in our house. we are home bodies and we put pretty much everything we have back into our house so there was no place better for him to ask me. after we went to my parents house for champagne. my mom met me at the door right when we walked in. everyone was there to congratulate us. the night was perfect!
{my original engagement ring, i had a few tears trading it in}

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
neither....last year he got me a gift certificate to get a pedicure!  he gave me so much of a gift certificate to get the pedicure that i was told to bring my mom and sister with!  here is the sad part, i still have not gotten said pedicure!! :(  i have the gift certificate upstairs.  maybe i will go with my mom and sister this weekend!!

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
we are for sure home bodies!  billy is gone so much that when he is not working we like to just be at home, especially now that we have our culley!  billy loves being able to just hang out and play toys with C!  if we do go out to eat it's usually us meeting at buffalo wild wings, wings are billy's favorite and bw's is the perfect place for us to go with cullen.  he loves all the tv's!  always entertained :)
back in the day pic, see we love wings...


10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
we would love to go on a vacation!! we have never left minnesota together! neither of us have been on a vacation in years.  we want to go to turks and caicos and hopefully some day take cullen to the do most magical place, disney world! we always talk about taking a trip so hopefully we will be able to some day!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
as of right now, we have no plans.  i'm guessing we will have a dinner night at home with our culley bear.  we are all about being a family and spending as much time together as we can, our time always seems so limited and c bear is almost ONE!
{our lil family}

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
nope, just time with my two valentines daddyB and sweetC!
{my loves}

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
in my opinion, showing affection is a major thing!  if you are in a relationship with someone and never kissing, hugging, having "fun" in the bedroom then why be in a relationship?  that along with supporting each other, being each others best friend and of course always remember to say, i love you...
{my best friend}


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

{melt my heart}

{and they lived happily ever after forever and ever}

thanks for hosting this fun link up ms. becky!!
