Spill about your LOVE. A link-up!

DSC_0335I found this link-up at A. Liz Adventure’s blog. I thought it was really fun, and I really enjoy link-ups because of the new bloggers I get to meet, so here we go! This is a link-up about me and Nat and our LOVE 🙂 link love{1} Describe your dating life prior to finding your husband/boyfriend/fiance.

My dating life before Nat consisted of a bunch of duds. I dated one guy seriously in high school, and when we broke up my freshman year of college, I was sure my life was over. Thank goodness I was wrong! I dated casually throughout the rest of college and that resulted in a bunch of horror stories. Most of those are good for the “What was your worst date” question. Anyway, I had sworn off dating for a while, because I was tired of putting myself out there, and then Nat comes walking into my life very unexpectedly. If I could have told my 18 year old self to just hang on, because someone worth waiting for was coming, I would have saved myself a lot of heartache.

{2} Describe your husband/boyfriend/fiance in one word. How would he describe you in one word? 
Nat is happy. I know that seems very vague, but he is the happiest person I have ever met.
He would probably describe me as silly.
I just asked him- he said awesome. Either one will work 🙂
{3} You had a really silly fight. Embarrassing silly. What was it about?
We once fought about fighting. I started crying and Nat basically asked why I was still crying, because he thought the fight was over. I still laugh about that because it was right after we got married and it was probably one of our first fights. I was so offended that he didn’t understand why I was crying. He obviously never had a sister.

{4} In three sentences (and only three!), describe where you both hope to be in 5 years.
Truthfully, in five years, I hope Nat and I have one child and are sharing a lot of sweet/funny/exhausted memories. I also hope that we are still enjoying being a football coach family and that I can finally keep up with the games and know all of the jargon (priorities, people!). Finally, I hope I continue cooking and I have run another marathon.
{5} Tell us something about your husband/boyfriend/fiance we wouldn’t know from reading your blog.
Nat is so even tempered. I know and believe that God divinely put Nat and I together because I am dramatic and uneven and easily upset. I will not lie, I am a diva. Nat is the opposite. He keeps me level and helps bring me down from my crazy levels. I love being around that guy- he keeps me normal.
{6} What’s one thing you never thought you’d do in front of your husband/boyfriend/fiance, but you did?
My goal was to never fart in front of Nat until we were married. The problem with being a runner is occasionally, after a long run, you can’t help some things. I tried my best to never let it happen and then one day we were sitting on the couch after a long run and one slips. I cried out of embarrassment.
After a year of marriage, the embarrassment is long gone.
