Spilling about my Love

 Today I am linking up with A. Liz Adventures to share with you all about my love life! This link-up is quite fitting since yesterday was our 2nd anniversary (which we spent drinking red wine and eating Thai food at our favorite Thai place in the city).  

{1} Describe your dating life prior to finding your husband/boyfriend/fiance.
Messy. I had a serious boyfriend in high school that I truly thought I was going to marry. We broke up at the beginning of senior year and I was absolutely, completely devastated. Unfortunately, we proceeded to put each other through a world of hurt for the next several years. It was pure torture and for a long time I couldn't see through to the other side. One day, I realized that the two of us were never going to work out, there had been too much hurt between us, and we kind of unspokenly ended things. Its hard to explain how G came into my life as he was technically already in it since we'd known each other for 4 years when we got together. I guess without all the baggage of my previous relationship, I saw him with a different clarity and realized what a great guy he is and how much we have in common. He's changed every notion I ever had about what it means to love someone. Very, very thankful to have what we have now.

{2} Describe your husband/boyfriend/fiance in one word. How would he describe you in one word?
Genuine. What you see is what you get with G and I love that about him. He genuinely cares about me, the dog, his family, his friends, his work. When he says he is going to do something 99% of the time he follows through with it. Whether its plans with a friend or cutting the lawn for his mom, he's there. His one word to describe me is dedicated. 

{3} You had a really silly fight. Embarrassing silly. What was it about?
Both of us have a hard time not expressing our feelings which has led to a lot of fights. I'm not sure what silly things we fight over because usually the fight escalates and then we're angry and then tired and neither of us can remember what we were fighting about in the first place. I will say this, I (and G) think sometimes we get into arguments for the sake of arguing- it seems we like the drama of it. We're both really good at apologizing, though.The quote from "Love Story" that says, "love means never having to say you're sorry" is misleading and completely untrue.

{4} In three sentences (and only three!), describe where you both hope to be in 5 years.
I hope we have a baby, if that's the path we've decided to take in life. I hope we are still living in a city somewhere if not here. I hope we are both incredibly happy career-wise and happy in our personal lives. 

{5} Tell us something about your husband/boyfriend/fiance we wouldn't know from reading your blog. 
He's a nickname fanatic. Seriously, almost everyone in his life has a nickname of some sort. Some are very obvious like a person's last name. Some, like most of mine and the dog's, are completely off the wall. The nicknames take on a life of their own and morph into several different nicknames over the course of time. He says its a sign of affection so I guess I'm glad I have a whole bunch and they're all weird. 

{6} What's one thing you never thought you'd do in front of your husband/boyfriend/fiance, but you did?
Talk about bowel movements. It comes up a lot in our household.
