Old School Blogging

Old School Blogging? Whats that?  I recently got tagged in a fun lil post from Lanaya at Raising Reagan and I thought it would be a fun little get to know a little more about me and learn more about some of my blogging loves too!

1. How did your husband pop the big question?
           I knew it was coming and he still managed to surprise me!  We started the day by waking up super early and heading over to a local lake to watch the sun rise! It was cold!!!! We were freezing and snuggled up in a blanket.. I kept waiting for it then he said ok lets go its cold.  I was like what!!!???  We had breakfast and then had planned to spend some time at the park chilling out, having a picnic, playing some bball etc.  I thougth surly it would happen while we were at the park! There were plenty of romantic opportunities but nada! haha The day went on and I decided well its not happening yet!  We ran some errands and we went to go feed some ducks at another park.  We were feeding the ducks when he stopped, got down on 1 knee and read me this mushy lil poem he had written followed by Will you Marry Me?!  

2. What are the 3 most surprising things about married life?
           1. You think you love someone more than you ever could then you wake up to this...

Love is always changing always growing and the Brad Paisley song "Then" is really the way life is!
2. The advice I got from my mom (always wear beautiful nighties, always do you hair and put on your make up) yeah that lasted for a whole... pssshhh week? lol I thought Oh no prob!  Dude there are days that its lucky if I even remember to change out of my comfy yoga pants and tshirt to actual PJs lol
3.  The honeymoon can last as long as you want it to.. You just have to work at it!  Constantly!!!

3. How did you find out you were pregnant for the first time?
      The first time was a major shock! Well all 3 times were unexpected shocks but the first threw a few kinks in the plan!  It was Bens Bday, we had been engaged for a whole 10 days, Ben was leaving in 2 weeks for 8 months of Basic and AIT and we were well into the wedding planning stages, preparing for a big wedding when he came back...  I just felt different, weird and knowing we hadnt been careful I went and got a test.. Im pretty sure my first pee on the stick ended with a few choice words! followed by about 10 other pees on sticks just to make sure followed by throwing up at work for 2 hours, getting sent home and then saying happy bday baby youre gonna be a daddy! LOL we were as scared as can be but it all worked out and here we are just a little over 4 years later with a 3 1/2 year old, a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 1/2 year old lol! 
4. How did you choose your first babies name?
      Ben had just graduated from Basic Training and I flew out to South Carolina for his graduation and a few days together before his next round of training started and I had found a 3d Imaging place in town that did Gender Determination Ultrasounds and had one together so we could find out together!  I think we both had our minds set on a girl, not sure why.  We had discussed a few names and really hadnt come to any kind of agreements.  I had a dozen boy names I loved, Ben had just 1.. Benjamin!  When we found out it was a boy he said Benjamin it is.. I tried everything over the next few months to get him to change his mind but he really had his heart set on wanting to name his son after him and I just couldnt deprive him of that, however I was not a go with the same middle name.  We decided to give Benjamin my step dads name for a middle name and he was shocked but we love it.. Benjamin Keith!
5. Describe where you see yourself in 10 years?
       In 10 years we will have a 13, 12 & 11 year old OMG hahah I see life being a little hectic with dance, sports and all those kinds of fun things!  Hopefully in a different city, a bigger house and the ability to pee with out an audience!  
6. Describe how you find bliss using words or images?

Yay now my turn to tag 5 of my friends!  Looking forward to reading about love from some of my fav Blogging Buds!
