The Story Of US

The Story Of "Us"...

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We've been together since October of 2003, so over 9 years!

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We met after one of my husband's wrestling shows. I knew who he was from Tough Enough(the MTV reality show he had won)and had been watching him wrestle for the few weeks that I had been going to the shows with my friend. 

I came to learn that he was a Christian and was like, "Oh my gosh, I have to meet this guy!" My friend (unbeknownst to me) went up to him after one of the shows like the crazy fan he was and showed Matt a picture of me he and pointed me out in the parking lot. 
 
Sooo... the next thing I know, Matt is yelling, "Lindsay!" across the parking lot, and I'm doing my best to pretend I didn't hear him because I was SO embarrassed! Well, much to my mortification, he walked right up over to me and introduced himself and shook my hand. He told me to stick around after the next show...which I actually didn't because I didn't want him to think I was one of those "groupie"/fan girls!

So anyway, my sister started dating one of the wrestlers around that time and a few weeks later we ended up all going out to eat together after one of the shows, Matt and I exchanged numbers...and the rest is history!

3. If married, how long have you been married?
We've been married for 7 amazing years(In March)! 

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?
We ran off and eloped to Maui to get married without telling anyone! It was just us two, the minister, and the photographer. I never wanted a big, fancy wedding, so it was perfect to me! 

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another?
I have no clue how this got started, but we call each other "lover" or sometimes(it sounds so ridiculous!)"lover pie"!
 
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
Well...I love that he is so creative and can fix anything.
I love that he makes me laugh all the time!
I love that he is so sensitive and that he cries at movies and sappy commercials! 
Most of all, what I love about him is his love for Christ. (Well, that was 4 things, but oh well!)
 
7. Tell us how he proposed?
Well, he actually proposed to me on Valentine's day! He had just bought a condo that he told me he was going to rent out...well, it turned out that he had actually bought it for the two of us to move into together! He took me there to show it to me on Valentine's day, and when we got to the upstairs bedroom he told me to look in the closet. There were candles and a big sign that said, "Happy Valentine's Day". When I turned around, he was on one knee with a ring in his hand! It was funny because I'm not the type of person to show lots of outward emotion, so I was like, "You nerd! Let me see that!" and just grabbed the ring out of his hand and put it on! I don't think I was thinking straight! He was like, "Is that yes?"
 
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
More of a flowers and teddy bear guy...We don't really make a huge deal out of Valentine's day. I tell him every year that ALL I want is a box of chocolates! He shows me in so many ways every day how much he loves me, so I don't need anything extravagant!
 

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Oooh, I would love both!!!  The beach is my favorite place in the world...unfortunately, we don't have one near by. I would say that I am definitely more of a relax on the couch and watch a movie girl than a go out to a fancy dinner girl for sure!
 

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
Wow, that's a hard one because there are lots of places I'd love to go! One place I've been wanting to go to is the Grand Canyon... and I've always wanted to go on a Safari! But really, I think if I could choose to go anywhere in the whole entire world, it would be to a beautiful, remote, tropical island somewhere!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Well, since Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year we aren't really doing anything special that day, but we're going out to dinner for our Valentine's date on Saturday! 

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Like I said, all I want is a box of chocolates!! Doesn't take much to make me happy. :)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Hmmm...well, I would say a few things: 
Number one: Pray together daily! Keep God the center of your marriage.
Never be afraid to admit when you're wrong and apologize.
Make each other's happiness more important than your own. 
Kiss and say I love you every morning, before bed and always before you leave the house! And lots in between! ;)

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
 
 
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
