Happy Valentine's Day!

This is really not my holiday, ESPECIALLY this year.   But I figured I'd do this fun little link-up and then add a few words at the bottom and wallah a "lovey dovey" Valentine's Day post.  :)

Today I am linking up with From Mrs. to Mama...

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been together for 3 years!

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We met the first day of senior year.. we had College Algebra together.  I was determined to meet new people and thus I introduced myself. :)  [[READ.MORE]]

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
Next month we will have been married for two 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?
Small. Just us and the officiant, or whatever at the courthouse in Annapolis, MD.  Someday I hope to have a big vow renewal with the fairy-tale wedding.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
Oh all of them.. bahaha.  I enjoy making them up as we go too.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
  • He is determined to be the best man, husband, father he can be for our little family and has major goals for us and our future.
[[sidenote--Piston WAS so tinyyyy...]]

  • He is my best friend, ever.  And always knows what to say to either push my buttons or make me smile.
  • He is smart.  VERY smart.. and good looking to go with it. ;)

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He picked me up from the airport one day.. and when we got to the parking garage he got down on one knee in his ACU's and pulled a set of dogtags out that said "Will you  marry me, Amanda Dawn?" and my ring was on the chain.. :)

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Flowers and a card.  He knows me so well.. cards are the way to my heart. :)

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Depends on the occasion.  Just an everyday date I'm good with dinner and then a movie at home.  Or our all time favorite of taking a cruise for no reason.

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
Have a family.  Travel more.  Do the whole vow renewal business.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
One of my friends from high school invited me out to dinner with her, her daughter and one of her friends who also happens to be a military wife.  Olive Garden here we come!!! (maybe, as long as the wait isn't killer..)

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nope.. My valentine will be here soon enough. ;)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Don't hold grudges.  Sometimes silly stupid things are said, but the quicker you can drop it and move on, the better you will be.  With that comes listening I suppose.

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

My dearest Rob,

I love you and I can't wait to see you soon!  Thanks for being who you are, always, no matter here nor there.  You do it well.  I'm honored to be apart of your life as your wife.. and never forget how proud I am of you.

Love you always and forever.

Hope you all have a swell Valentine's Day and you are surrounded by love [and all that jazz...]
