our kind of love

Better late than never, but I just had to link up with A. Liz Adventures to spill your love story! Tyler and I are going on 3 months of marriage and are only days away from our engageaversary next week! I am so blessed to have him in my life, especially as my husband. The day we met we both just "knew" and I give all of that credit to the Lord because we are seriously a match made in heaven!

Oh, AND the title above is the song that we call "our song," you know, the Lady Antebellum "Our Kind of Love."

I've enjoyed reading everyone's responses to these questions, so I had to play along! 

{1} Describe your dating life prior to finding your husband.
Oh my. I haven't thought or talked about this in a really.long.time. Yikes. Well, in high school I started dating a guy that I dated on and off up gosh for like 5 years until the day I met Tyler. Yep, you read that correctly. When I met Tyler I just KNEW he was special and sadly had to tell that to the other guy. We had had many ups and downs for a few years, and have not spoken since that day. My college roommates (Leah I know you are reading this and have a great reaction of mine from this night) can confirm that for you, too. This guy does live with my cousin who is getting married soon, so I know I will be seeing him a lot in the near future and from what I hear he is really happy and I hope rightfully so! Other than that, I had guys in college that I went to formals with or would casually go on a date with, but nothing serious. Again, roommates may have better stories than me!

{2} Describe your husband in one word. How would he describe you in one word?
One word: Ah, so hard!!!! I guess the one word I would use to describe Tyler would be happy, but with a side of goofy, smart, and determined. And one word to describe me? His answer: wonderful. (I really did ask him). And thats a silly answer, because I certainly do not think so!

{3} You had a really silly fight. Embarrassing silly. What was it about?
99.9% of the time our fights are over him constantly chewing ice!!! It drives me BANANAS and I swear he does it subconsciously because someone cannot be scolded as much as he does and still continue to do it! I have to raise my voice and scream and sometimes throw the ice out of the cup for him to stop! And sometimes we fight because I don't have a lot of patience and am "mean" as he calls it to him aka I don't pay him 100% attention!

{4} In three sentences (and only three!), describe where you both hope to be in 5 years.
For the record, I hate this question!
I hope in five years that we are settled in a place (hopefully Beaufort) with jobs we love (hopefully my current job) and are rockin' at. I guess there could be a small child, but that is something I'm not quite ready to think and talk about! (This is a silly answer----) And if you read yesterday's post, I hope we have a little kitty in our home that Sarge (God willing we still have him!!!) gets along with!

{5} Tell us something about your husband we wouldn't know from reading your blog.
Well, you know he loves to hunt, boat, kill things, shoot guns, and he loves Sarge, and also that he went to Sandy Hook Elementary School. But for kicks and giggles I'll give you a couple bits of Tyler trivia: 1) He was voted "Most Likely to Stay in Newtown" for his senior superlative... ughhhh after he went to college in Virginia, he transferred to Clemson, then moved to Illinois, and then back to South Carolina, so we laugh at this superlative a lot! I'd say this superlative was WAY off! Now mine- "Most Talented" is still up in the air about what my talent is..... 2) He can fall asleep in seconds. This guy seriously can sleep anywhere and fall asleep in an instant! I don't get it and I'm so jealous! 

We can't even watch a movie..... And he would kill me for this.

3) His favorite beer is a Stella Artois 4) He thinks my blog is silly and that a creeper is going to come find me and makes fun of me when I talk about my "blog friends." 5) He wanted to play Division I lacrosse in college until he had an injury, so then he (originally) attended Hampton Sydney College to play, but ended up transferring instead. 6) He loves Dumb and Dumber and Step Brothers 7) Tyler was a student firefighter at Clemson 8) He was the hellion child growing up (I know my inlaws are cracking up right now saying YES)!

{6} What's one thing you never thought you'd do in front of your husband/boyfriend/fiance, but you did?
Honestly, we are both open books with each other. On one of our first dates we played 20 questions and kind of put everything out there (I sweat a lot, he has tummy issues), so we kind of went into our relationship knowing we are both really open in general and that we would be together! That's probably a lame answer, but that's all I got!

I love this peek into you and Tyler. And I LOVE your song! One of my favorite Lady A songs!

Awww, I missed this linkup and I love the questions and your answers. I have the same sleeping ability as your husband. It's awesome usually, but not being able to make it through a movie sucks. And my husband says the same thing about me being "mean" if he doesn't get attention. Oh husbands...

Lauren said...

Love it! I've loved all these link ups.

I loved this! I love reading about other couples and their dynamics and stories etc. I LOVE that you just knew that he was the one. That's seriously precious. I had the exact opposite story...I actually broke up with Eric years ago for ANOTHER guy who I thought was perfect and started dating him the next day. Years later, I'm back with Eric and am still apologizing for being such a bitch to him back then. Ha! So awkward. Y'all are ridiculously precious and I'm dying to hang out with you both!!!
