What's Your Love Story Linkup

Found this new linkup from Megan from Becky at From Mrs. to Mama!

Figured I would linkup, even though I decided not to blog tonight (such a long day at work and my rec volleyball team is really bad.. i hate losing....)

Taken Ladies

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

Since December 2010- whoops, I had down 2011 but that was last December. I was obviously not thinking clearly! It will be a year and 2 months tomorrow haha!

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

I was introduced to Tyler by my best guy friend from home, Matthew, who happened to be Tyler's best friend at Clemson. We met at the South Carolina/Clemson game. That's the short version :)

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

Not married! And he better be! I moved halfway across the country for him! (Usually a joke/gilt trip- I don't really mean it in a mean way! It should be flattering to him!)

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?

I'm sure I'll get married in my grandparents church in Orangeburg (at home). My home church is too small.

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

Um, not really. Just the normal Ty and Char that everyone else have for us. We do talk in a weird language, though? (Cue the scene from the Proposal where Betty White is in the woods chanting the "Eee eee ooo eee eee eee oooo"- Remember that? Yes. That happens.)

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

1) He makes me laugh 2) He is so smart 3) He takes care of me (the moving process has been difficult)

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

Psh. That is totally up to him. I just don't want to be in front of ANYONE (too awkward for me) but I would LOVE for our families to be together afterwards somehow. My family is in SC, his is in PA, his brother is in TX, and we are in IL. Yeah....

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

Flowers for sure.

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

We live on this couch watching SVU, Ax Men, Pawn Stars, Chopped, etc. He likes to be romantic but we honestly just have more fun being "normal" since we were long distance for a year.

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

Travel! I'm sure we'll visit all of the hunting-friendly places in the Us. Ha ha ha.

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

I think we are going to go to dinner in town and try out a new place!

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

I asked for nothing and expect nothing, not even flowers. Maybe a card or a hug :) We did a big V-day last year since it was our first one, so I want things to be low-key this year!

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

Communication and making each other laugh. Tyler constantly does things to make me laugh and I love him for it!

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

See! He makes me laugh!

Ice skating when I lived in DC. True love

What's your love story? Linkup!

Ta ta,

You two are so cute together! And I didn't know that you were from Orangeburg! My mom's family is from there (her father's family).

Megan said...

Hahah I LOVE that you two talk to each other in the Betty White language. That cracks me up! And we are semi-long distance now so I get the wanting to be "normal." Some of my favorite nights are spent on the couch :).

Rebecca said...

Love this, Char! Missing you SO much!

Cori H. said...

Too cute! Just being "normal" together after being apart for so long is the best thing ever! Hope y'all have a great Valentine's Day!
