Our Love Story

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to share our love story!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Brian and I have been together since the summer of 2007 so for 4 1/2 years now.

2. How did you meet? {What’s your “love” story?}
Brian was introduced to me by my older sister Kate.  She was already at college and picked him out as someone I would be attracted to.  She was absolutely right!  I dated some other guys my freshman year, because Brian was a senior and not sure if he was staying in the area. We officially started dating six months later when Brian decided to stick around town.  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 since March 20th, 2010.

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 at my church back home that my grandfather started.  It’s always been a dream of mine to have my Papa perform the ceremony so it was very special.  We had a medium size wedding with lots of family and friends.  It was a special day and even snowed in Texas as we were leaving the reception.

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

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
I love that he is a hard worker, a spiritual leader in our family, and very determined in everything he does.

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

Brian and I had been dating for about 2 1/2 years and knew we were going to get married so I was kind of pushing him about when we would get engaged.  Needless to say, I didn’t realize that he was waiting to propose because he was having my ring specially made for me.  To ease my questions, Brian told me that we would get engaged before school got out in early May.  Well that just made me very suspicious of every date we went on from there on.  Brian tricked me into thinking that he had a large deal come through and I asked if we could go out to celebrate like we normally do when he closes a deal at work.  He agreed and we went out to our favorite restaurant at the time, Outback Steakhouse.  Even though it was my idea to go out to eat, I was still looking at his pockets to see if there was a ring box that evening.  After dinner Brian told me that he was going to hang out with his friend Todd much to my dismay.  He told me that he only had about 30 more minutes then he would need to take me back to the dorms.  Since we had a limited time I suggested we go to our spot (a cute gazebo in a local neighborhood).  Once there we sat and talked about the future and living in a cute neighborhood like that one some day.  Then he told me he loved me and I said I loved him too.  He asked me to prove it to him by wearing this ring for the rest of my life.  I was so excited that my chest broke out in red spots!  My sister appeared from around the corner to take pictures of us and then we went to a surprise party where all our friends were waiting.  It was an unforgettable day!


 

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Definitely a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy except normally I get bunnies instead of bears.

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

Pop in a movie and relax on the couch together.  I’m not a huge fan of the beach.

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

We would both love to go back to Costa Rica where we honeymooned someday.  It was gorgeous and we had so much fun ziplining, riding horses, swimming, and relaxing.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine’s Day.
My sister and I are cooking an Italian dinner for our men complete with homemade French Silk Pie for dessert. 

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine’s day?
A tanning package so I don’t feel so pasty!

Communication is key to keeping any relationship strong!  And it is especially crucial for newlyweds.
