Share your Love Story


Read More Here:

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
(College dorm days- I gave him that pillowcase for Valentines day! ha ha!)

We dated for 1 1/2 years and got married in August 2001

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}

Terence and I actually met over the internet.  Well, actually my twin sister Bonnie was talking to a dorm mate of his online and we decided to meet up at Baskin Robbins that night.  My sister brought me along and Terence's friend brought him along.  We barely spoke that first night. 
(My twinkie)

After weeks of talking, emailing, and phone calls I invited him over on Super Bowl Sunday to hang out with me and my Mom.  The rest is history....a few nights later we went on an official date to the Olive Garden & Chuck E Cheese :-)

3. If married, how long have you been married?

10 years

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?

We had a pretty big wedding with over 300 people there.  It was in my hometown church in Conway, Arkansas.  We had a reception at the local college in one of the ballrooms.  We were only 20 when we got married so no crazy stuff!

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!

Yes- I call him Ter-Bear.  A nickname I picked up from his younger sister. 

He doesn't really have one for me?

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.

He's loyal, smart, and handsome ......and a great Daddy :-)

7. Tell us how he proposed?

Terence proposed at the Fort Worth Water Gardens.  He was on leave for the weekend from tech school in the Air Force.  It was a cold night in January we went out to dinner and he insisted we get out and walk through the water gardens.  It was COLD!  I remember he was shaking...not sure if it was because he was nervous or cold! Ha ha!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?

He usually gets me a box of Godiva chocolates and we may go out to dinner.  He's not really a lovey dovey guy....so when he does do things like that it really surprises me because I am in SHOCK!

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?

These days it's pop a movie in and relax.  I know that every day life is not like a Kay's Jewelry commercial...they make me gag! LOL!

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?

We are leaving for London/Paris soon and I'm beyond excited about that because I've never been!  We would both like to go to Ireland or Norway someday.  We are not really beach peeps.

And I want to take Connor to Disney someday!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.

Watching Breaking Dawn and gorging on Godiva truffles on my sofa.....

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?

Obviously....a copy of Breaking Dawn and Godiva truffles...hint hint....

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.

Don't go to bed angry.  Kiss each other goodnight every night.  Pray together.  Don't ever leave when you are in a fight...it only makes things worse.  Don't try to rush something if your partner isn't ready.  You have your whole lives together so take your time and enjoy each phase of your relationship....being a couple, buying a new home, having kids, traveling....take your time you will be able to do it all and of course there will never be enough money no matter how much you make so just get over it AND LIVE YOUR LIFE!

14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
