1. What is the one thing your love does for you that you can't live without?
There are so many I don't know if I can think of the top one. He calls me during the day just to say I love you or I was thinking about you. He gives me foot rubs when I've had a bad day. He watches the kids so I can go to a support group meeting for caregivers that have kids with disabilities. He does a lot for me.
2. When did you know your love was "the one"?
Pretty quick after I met him. He is the one and only person I ever took home. I didn't want to think he was the one so I played it off like he wasn't. But deep down I knew he was.
3. Does your love have a special ringtone on your cell?
Yup. Would you go with me by Josh Turner. When we were dating and he couldn't decide between me and his ex-girlfriend (long story there!) he asked me if I'd follow him any where if he went back into the military. I told him if we were married I would. How's that for being forward? We've walked through fire side by side and I love him even more for it.
4. What are you attracted to most in your special someone?
That he's a bad boy! J/K. But not really. I'm always the safe one. The sensible one but I have this side of me that wants to be reckless and irresponsible. So he kind of fulfills that for me!
5. Did you know when/where he/she was going to pop the big question?
Yes. And I was so mad!!!!
Seriously like I don't even want to show up cause I'm so mad at you mad.
He had asked me earlier in the day (I'm quoting here so please forgive the language.) "Do you want me to be all romantic and shit or do you just want the damn ring on your finger?"
I threw his lunch at him.
Threw the bag of Taco Bell across the counter of the gun store he worked at. At him.
Well his head really. I spat out. "I don't really care" and turned around and left. I went home and asked all my roomates if I was crazy for marrying him. We'd already bought the rings and were waiting on my saphires to replace the diamonds. Later that night he wanted me to come pick him up but he said he had to clean the shooting range first. That involved getting into his hazmat suit and cleaning for about an hour. Then 5 minutes later he called back and asked to talk to one of my roomates. That is what made me suspicious and even more mad because he knew I was mad and he was still going to propose anyway. He wanted me to believe that he wanted them to come shooting at the range. Something he'd never wanted them to do before. So we all went down and his parents and brothers were there. He told me we had to go pattern the shotgun for our turkey hunt that weekend. Then he hands me a .22. I even said (because I was still mad, remember!) that it wasn't a shotgun and he better not give it to me loaded.
So we go out on the range and he has a target strung up with my ring taped to it. The center bulls eye says Hell yes. The rings say yes and outside the target says no. Across the top it says will you marry me? Then he runs it all the way out to the end and shakes the line it's on so it's bobbing up and down. His mom is banging on the safety glass yelling "She's going to shoot the ring! Take the ring off!"
I showed him though. I hit the bulls eye! Taught him not to mess with me when I'm mad, didn't I? Now 7 1/2 years later we're still going strong.
