Our Love Story

I'm linking up today with From Mrs. to Mama to share our love story with you!! Make sure to click the button to check out other great love stories!!

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

 This is so crazy, me and my hubs were highschool sweethearts. We have been together since 2003!! I was 14 when we started dating :) 

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

We meet in highschool. We had a few classes together, that's is how we "officially met" The funny thing is we actually grew up about 2 blocks from each other, and more than likely played together when we were little. We just went to different middle schools otherwise it probably registered with us! We also went to camp together once! I went with my best friend and she said to me one night "That is Henry, he goes to oakdale, he is soooo hot!" my response was "ewww" hahaha, true story!

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}

We got married on July 31 2010 :) so we have made it a year and a half! 

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 Grand Rapids at the Calvin College Theological Seminary Chapel. Henry went to Calvin and used to play for chapels so it was fitting, and it is a beautiful building!! Our reception was also awesome, we held it at a contemporary art museum, Hen is an artist so it was soo fitting. We had a small wedding because we both have small families, we probably had around 100 guests. 

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

I have a huge list of nicknames for him! I use them on him and the bunny interchanbably, is that bad lol? I call him, peps (from tim and eric awesome show!), baby, munchkin (this is usually reserved for the rabitt tho) pumpkin, hen hen, ham, hamy ect ect.
If I am lucky he calls me babe, that's about it, my name is just so beautiful! ha!

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

My honey is an amazing man!! He is a strong Christian man, which I love. His sense of humor is out this world (he can get a whole room laughing when he wants). He is also a charmer, he is so sweet and thoughtful, to old and young (if i didn't only have to pick 3 I'd also say he is amazing with kids!!)

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

There is this really awesome restaurant downtown that is on the 27th floor and looks out over the city. We always go there for desserts because the atmosphere is amazing. We went to celebrate finishing the semester and we bought desert, after desert he got done on one knee and popped the question! The odd thing was no one saw it, but it was great we had our own little moment! 

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

I would say he is a little of both! One year I got a teddy bear with chocolates, but we also love champagne!!  He is so creative, once he made me flowers so they lasted longer (and no he didn't find it on pinterest, that is what he said ;) )! <3 him

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

We are pop a movie kind of couple. We love just relaxing! We actually spend most free nights on the couch with a bottle of wine and we read The Walking Dead together, we are such geeks!!

A typical date night, board games and cocktails!

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

We want to travel, travel, travel. As much as we can especially before we have kids. Maybe in a year or two we can travel to Europe!

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

I am excited for V-day! We are making a nice dinner at home and then we may be going to a concert! There is a free local music concert that night with like 30 bands playing, we may go see 1 or 2 of our favorites.

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

I already got my Valentines Gift. I could still use a pair of Hello Kitty pj's from Target ;)

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

Be accepting and forgiving. I think we are so happy because we accepted eachother for exactly who we are, there is no use in thinking you can change someone because you really can't, you need to love them for EVERYTHING and when they make a mistake, because we all do, just forgive don't hold it against them, it is not worth the stress!

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

Such a cute story! It’s so cute that you guys were high school sweethearts and are still going strong.

P.s. I'm a new follower from #FF. I tried to return an email (on a comment you left on my blog), but it didn't work. Thought I would say hi here instead!

Following from the blog hop. Such a sweet story. My son and his girlfriend met when they were 12 and 13 and have now been dating almost 2 years. They swear they are getting married as soon as she is 18. Your story makes me a little less skeptical:)
