{Valentine's Day~Love Story} LINK UP!!

I love link ups! I also love my Hubby and family. 

So, here we go. 

{Our Love Story} 
1. How long have you and your significant other been together?  
13 Years! We dated for 7 years and have been married for almost 6! 

 {our first V-day ever! 2000}

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Ahiii. Where to start? Ha. My Husband was my Cousin’s best friend in H.S. When I was 15 {I lived in the Valley}and he was 17 {lived here in Houston}, that Summer my cousins and I went swimming at the apartment complex where Ricardo lived. I saw him, he said “Hi”. Nothing much. 3 years later I graduated High School and came to Houston to go to college. We “met” again. On a blind date. He asked me to be his girlfriend, I didn’t want to have a boyfriend in college, I was a nerd. He was relentless. He asked me twice to be his girlfriend. The second time I said yes. 7 years later he proposed…
3. If married, how long have you been married?   
We will be married for 6 years this August! {That’s 13 years after having met in August of 1999}
4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?   
We had a huge MEXICAN wedding, 500 people. Here in Houston. Very traditional Catholic wedding. Lots of dancing and drinking! One of the best memories of our lives… 

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share! 
 Babe. Gordo. ‘Cardo. Momma. Nonnie.
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey. 
He cares even though he acts like he doesn’t. He’s hilarious. He loves me.
7. Tell us how he proposed? 
It was a horrible proposal! HA! He claims I was being nosy. It may be true. I found my engagement ring in the glove compartment of his car one night after dinner and a baseball game. He said some kinda half thought out speech and asked me to be his wife…I still cried. It’s still special!
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals? He is a "if I have to then I must flowers and card" kinda guy. He doesn’t care much for presents. So, he’s made me the same way… Ha. I am sure he will give me something.
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Most definitely have always been a couch movie watchin’kinda gal! No pressure here.
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? 
Grow old with  one another and watch our children grow up to be strong hard working people.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
I think it will be an at home dinner with the kids and maybe even rent a new movie. We are simple people.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day? 
Just lots of hugs and kisses from my little ones…
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 
Honest and Sincere Communication. Every.Single.Day.
