Our LOVE Story...

Ever wonder the story of Jordan and I? 
Well if the answer is "YES" then read on sista!
Alrighty, I am linking up today with the fabulous Becky for "What's your love story!?"
I am a sap for hearing how people met!
I think have shared bits and pieces of how Jordan and I met but here is all the other details...

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Jordan and I have been together 4 years...
Yes, if you are doing the math things went QUICK!
We wouldn't have it any other way!:)
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
I had heard about Jordan somewhat through his roommate, Harold, was my manager at Express...
He would randomly talk about his cool roommate and things they would do on the weekends...
I didn't really think much of it just because I was literally so BUSY working 3 jobs....
One January day my manager and Jordan walked in to the store, I was working at the register
so I spotted them the second they walked in....
I saw Jordan and was like "HOLY COW, I HAVE TO MEET HIM!"
Needless to say I called Harold over to tell him I wanted to meet Jordan,
He brought Jordan over to the women's side of the store and introduced us.
I of course was super shy and just said hello and all the small stuff.
They left and moved on with their day, so I texted Harold to see what Jordan's deal is....
He said that he was single and they were having people over for a football game the next week...
I said I would come but when the day came I was exhausted and bailed...
I am shocked knowing Jordan now that he did not axe me then hahaha....
We set up for us to all go out to dinner the next night...
The rest is seriously history!
Jordan and I have been together since that night...
We had the exact same values and goals in life and we knew it right off the bat....
We seriously signed a lease for our first apartment on my birthday 4 years ago...
Yes, one month after meeting we moved in together!:)
Soon after living together we got our first "child", Verner...
Bought our first house, got engaged...
Found out we were expecting Vincent...
Had Vincent, Got married, Got pregnant with Luke....moved to a new city....
Got pregnant with Jude and here we are hahaha!
I would not have it any other way, Jordan is the best husband and father ever...
I am very blessed to have met him!

3. If married, how long have you been married? 
We have been married 2 1/2 years, we chose to wait until after Vincent to get married.
I didn't see any reason to push our marriage forward just to be married before a baby.
We got married when Vincent was 4 months old!:) 
4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?  
We got married in Jordan's hometown, he lives on the lake!
We had about 100 people, it was perfect.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
He calls me gator (allie-gator)...or babe.
I call him babe, honey, honey bear (haha because Vincent has started saying it and it's SO FUNNY)
and this one is random I call him Blagojevich or Blagoy
 (I just thought the name was so funny when we heard it in the news a few years back!) 

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
There is so much I love about him, but the top 3 are....
#1, his heart, he has such a big heart! 
He loves me and the boys with all of it! 
I could not ask for a more loving husband and father for the boys! 
#2 is his honesty. He is brutally honest, and is a straight shooter and I love that about him. 
He doesn't BS people and he ALWAYS follows through! I love it!
 #3 is his humor. Jordan is hilarious! 
There is NEVER a dull moment with him, he is like a big kid. 
Watching him with the boys is always a treat!
 He has taught me to loosen up and have fun!:) 
Oh yeah and his sexiness doesn't hurt!!
7. Tell us how he proposed? 
I was actually in the middle of cooking dinner one random night and I turned around to him
on his knees. He popped the question and I squealed "YES!!!!"

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day,
 or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
HAHA I told Jordan this question and we both giggled. He is neither, actually WE are neither. I am not a big flower person or teddy bear (knick knack) person. I would say if we had to choose we are more of a chocolate couple ha! We love to taste test chocolates for no reason, so we just surprise eachother with fun chocolates we find when we're out and about!
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, 
or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
RELAXING type girl! I would much rather snuggle on the couch with Jordan than get ready and have to leave the kids lol I am such a home body! We usually cover the going out thing when we go on a "Mommy & Daddy" vacation weekend. We get our fixes then!:)
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. 
If you could do anything? Go anywhere? 
I want to travel abroad a lot when the kids get older. We watch House Hunters International all the time to see locations we would love to go! Ireland and Italy are at the top of our list! If we could also move abroad we would be ALL OVER that!! 

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 
Probably nothing haha! Sorry to disappoint you all!:)
We will probably have a romantic dinner with the boys!
Maybe I will make a cake, who knows!
Not sure how romantic it will be at 37 weeks pregnant! ha
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
No, my birthday is on the 9th and he has already went above and beyond this past month 
with our new SUV....I do not want a gift for a LONG time! Just his LOVE;)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 
Have FUN! Never take things too seriously...
If you have a little disagreement walk away and think before you speak...
Chances are things are NEVER as bad as you thought they were in the heat of the moment. 
Talk A LOT, ask how your husband is daily. LISTEN and always be there!
I know that I can talk to Jordan about anything and I love it! He is my best friend! 

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