A link-up and some facts

In honor of Valentine's Day being right around the corner I am linking up here with this questionnaire.
Taken Ladies

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
This will be Lover Boy's and I's 4th Valentines together and 2nd as marrieds!

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We met at themed pajama party down in Provo! Nerdy? Yes. Awesome? Also Yes. He approached "us" and we danced a couple songs before he grabbed my hand and pulled me(along with the group) for a photo opp.So we have a picture of us holding hands the night we actually met. He refused to get my name and would not give me his. Just announced that he would be calling me Boo and I should call him Mavrick. (total player right? Thats what I was sure thinking too!) He never got my number but we ended up seeing each other at yet another themed dance party(yes they love them themed dance parties in UT) where he concluded to get my friends #! Ha lets just say it made for a complicated and yet romantic dating experience. By the end we knew we REALLY wanted to be together.

3. If married, how long have you been married?
We will have been married 2 years in June!

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 Midvale,Ut at the Woods on 9th. It was perfect. Not too small and not too large. Just the right amount of our favorite people.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? 
In honor of our first meeting The Hubs still calls me Boo. I also call him Boo but because he loves Jay-z.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
Are we allowed to name more then 3? HA I will try to restrain myself.
I love that he can make me laugh more and harder then anyone else.
He is an amazing father and absoulutly dotes on our son.
He has a desire to serve our country and is out there starting to make that desire a reality.
7. Tell us how he proposed?
It was perfect.Especially for us(shows off our true personalities in our relationship) He had picked me up to go to lunch together on a sunny Monday afternoon.I was trying to rush him because I had all these errands and things I needed to get done before our lunch break was over. So I kept asking
"Where are we going?"
"What are we doing now?"
 He kept telling me to calm down and to just enjoy being together.
We pulled into his family orchard,he turned on a mix he had made for us,opened the back of his car up and layed out some blankets.
Sitting close together and enjoying our moment together he started slipping something onto my finger during This is for Keeps-The Spill Canvas
I thought for sure it was a joke and that he was just slipping on a fake walmart ring because he kept making a big deal about long my real ring was taking on being designed and set.
I looked down at my finger and saw my ring!
He of course then proposed and this girl said yes!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
He tends to be a little more of the romantic when it comes to certain things. I would say strawberries and rose petals. But I have gotten a teddy bear from him in the past.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch? I always like to think I am the sunset dinner and candle type but I think I actually gravitate to sweats,movie and relax(and prob crash at 9:30 type of girl)

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
I think we would both say spend a fun and relaxing day on a hottish beach that we have never been to before and just play in the sand and waves and then take well deserved naps in the sun.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Spending it with my sweet little man and likely pigging out on some sweets since this will be "Boo" and I's first V-day apart.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Just that my Boo will be doing well and not dying during Basic training. Totally cheesy but completely true. {I also wouldn't mind a phone call from him}
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Telling each other you love other EVERY day and making sure you mean it when you say it.

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