what's your love story?!

I am linking up with From Mrs to Mama for What's your love Story! I LOVE reading things like this! Enjoy!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been together 10 1/2 years! {Wow... that seems crazy to write out!}

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Ha! This story always makes me laugh! First off, I went to a college that a year before graduating high school, I would have NEVER gone to. I went due to the current relationship I was in and the fact they gave me a full ride. I decided to work at the campus post office... you know... to walk, deliver mail and NOT gain the freshman 15! {It worked incase you are curious! I lost 15!} My boss ended up being the SWEETEST lady who on the second day of my post office job, introduced me to her son! Yep! My former post office boss is now my MIL! Awwww.... :-) Justin and I started talking my second day of college and... the rest is history! {And as I have told my MIL several times... I hope you love me. You picked me! Ha! Love you Nana! And obviously the relationship I was in, didn't work!}

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
Justin and I have been married for 8 1/2 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?
We were married in my hometown. We had a VERY large wedding.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
He usually calls me Lea (Lee-ah), which is my middle name, however, it is actually pronounced Lee! {And the reason we spelled Hadlea's name like we did.} He just calls me that to make me crazy! I usually call him J or Babe. When he doesn't hear me or is turning me out, I yell JUSTIN! So guess who else calls him Justin in the house?! Yep, little mary mocker! She calls her daddy Babe or Justin 50% of the time! Daddy does NOT think it is funny! Ha!

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
Number one. Justin is my very best friend. I actually think our relationship confuses people because we are more 'friends' than husband/wife. But I think that is why we get along so well! Number two. He loves me for me. He has never wanted me to be anyone else. Number three. He LOVES his daughter and dog. He is like a big teddy bear when it comes to those two, and it is the best feeling in the world to experience!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
Justin proposed while we had dinner one night with his mom, sister and his nephew Riley. It is definitely not the most romantic story in the world, however, it fits his personality to a T! His mom, sister and nephew mean the world to him, so I know he wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Justin is more of a card type of guy! We never really exchange gifts for holidays so he will normally bring me a card and always write something super sweet in it! I never think holidays are about the 'gift', it is the thought that counts. And the words he writes in the card mean more than he will ever know! {I remember the first card I got as a mother from him. He said the sweetest things about how awesome I was as a mother. Melted my heart! I also remember one time he brought me flowers and paid like $100 for them. I was SO mad! I mean... $100 is a pair of shoes or jeans! Those things do NOT die! :)}

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
I am more of a sunset dinner on a beach with Justin and friends! Ha! Justin and I LOVE our friends, and we would much rather be together enjoying our friends, than being alone. Justin is NOT a movie person... which  may be because we went on a date one time and I fell asleep in the movie. BEFORE IT EVEN STARTED! True story. He let me sleep through the whole thing! Love him! :-)

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
If I could choose one place to go that we would both enjoy, I think it would be Alaska or to travel around the Boston/NY area and go to Baseball games. Justin has no desire to go to Italy, China, Australia like I do. He would much rather drive an hour and go fishing! Ha! But he has said he would love to go to Alaska. I wouldn't LOVE to go to Alaska (because I despise being cold), but I would go just to see it once. And because I am a sports person and Justin only REALLY likes baseball, I would travel to make a few games and see the Northeast! 

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We discussed going out on V-day, but I am not down with waiting forever and a year to eat! And since Hadlea has Little Gym that night, I am sure we will go there and then grab a quick bite!

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
No. Since we really do not buy holiday gifts, I have nothing in mind. I will probably just get him a card... or have Hadlea make him one. I do have a present in mind that I could buy him. He always gets mad when I say no gifts and then go buy him something. I would just rather give than receive in times like this. There is just nothing I need.
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Communication. I know so many couples that do not communicate on a regular basis. Justin and I are so great at talking throughout the day and talking before we fall asleep at night.

 LOVE to watch them interact. These two complete my world!
 But our family picture is not complete without my sweet baby boy in it!
This is a true family picture! {with Santa, a sour face baby girl and a yawning baby boy! Ha!}

14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
Well... I couldn't choose just ONE! First off, our family of three...

nice as it is to get flowers, I think they are a waste of $$ too! Your family is adorable!

haha 'I hope you like me, you picked me!' that's awesome! And I would be mad about the $100 flowers too :) I would feel bad about it, but seriously $100?!
