Valentines Day 2012

love

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!
For todays post I thought it would be fitting to talk about my valentine - my boyfriend Brian.
I haven't shared much about Brian on here up until now, so here goes nothing...

First of all I just want to say that -
Brian is my main squeeze - the peanut butter to my jelly if you will - yin to my yang. I don't know what I would do without him some days. He is the most laid back and up beat person I have ever met, which is great because I tend to be tense and anxious far too often.

We have been dating for -
Just over 2 years now. We don't have an exact number of months, hours, and minutes counted like some because we don't have a set anniversary. We also broke up for 3 months after having dated 3 because he studied abroad in England for a semester - we got back together as soon as he got off the plane though :] But that also complicates things when choosing an anniversary.

How we met -
I stalked him. Alright - a bit of an over-statment, butttt I did notice him long before he noticed me. I transferred schools my Sophomore year of college and spotted Brian moving in across the breezeway. I would see him from time to time getting on the elevator and I thought he was pretty cute but of course I never said a word to him.

Speed up a year later to mid October - our friends had an apartment where everyone would hang out and throw parties. At one of those parties I saw Brian and decided I had to do something (act like a little girl and tell all her friends she thought he was cute). Half way through the party my ex (yes this was super awkward) walked up to Brian and told him he should talk to me - and guess what! He did :] Unfortunately the party was winding down and I am pretty sure it got relocated to someone elses house so I didn't see much more of him that night. The next morning I received an fbook message from him asking if I was going to another party later that night (yes all that ever happened on weekends were parties in my college town). We met up later that night and chatted the night away, yadda, yadda, yadda next thing I know we are hanging out every day digging one another :]

Today -
Here we are today happy as clams. I love him so incredibly much. As for our valentines day plans - I am cooking him dinner (stuffed shells and bruschetta) and we are staying in to watch a movie. Brian isn't big on Valentines day, this is our 3rd, but this year he is acknowledging it and i'll take it, haha. I am not that big on the holiday either - I just like that it is another excuse to eat chocolates and snuggle up to my cute boyfriend.

Hope you all have a great day!

  13. This is so sweet - you two look so happy together. I happen to share the same anniversary conundrum: my boyfriend and I dated in high school but broke up and it took us about five years to get our act together and realize we couldn't be apart. Since we never had an official "back together" date, we give a nod to our past and celebrate our anniversary from way back in highschool. What nerds. haha. Happy Valentine's Day, both of you!

  22. Happy belated valentine's day! Your story was really lovely, like your boyfriend, mine is also super relaxed and I am quite anxious, so he often has the job of calming me down! Super awkward that your ex walked up to him to ask him to talk to you though (I don't think my ex would ask a potential date to talk to me, haha)! Ps - I love your coat in the picture :) xx

    1. Happy belated Vday to you as well. Thank you :] I think dating opposites in personalities can be a good thing. Annnd yeah I didn't anticipate him going up to talk to Brian but thankfully he did I guess haha.

  27. I love y'alls story! Thanks for sharing. A couple things:
    ~I LOVE the top picture of y'all. You know I've been stalking that jacket and can't seem to wrap my credit card around it because it always sells out or they don't have my size on ebay.
    ~That was pretty cool of your ex. At least he wasn't a *forgive my language* cock block that night at the party.
    ~I'm not very big on Vday either actually. I feel like everyday is pretty much Vday for Mikey and I but I do love the excuse for him to buy me a gift. (and vise versa) :)
    ~LOL @ the bachelorette picture caption!

    1. - I am sorry to hear that about the coat! I lucked out and bought the small on ebay as soon as it went out of stock at anthropologie, and was able to return the medium I purchased from them.
      - Haha, very true! At first I was mortified and convinced he had said something bad, but it all turned out alright in the end.
      - :]

  28. Yeah, so he's pretty stinkin handsome! I love his hair and that camera picture is funny. I have some old photos that have an N'Sync border on them because the camera was cheap. haha

    1. :] Thanks! I love his hair too, he wants to cut it and I think it would feel like dating a new person - yikes. I love cameras with borders, it makes them so much more fun. Annnd and an N'Sync one! Lucky you!! I was obsessed with them growing up haha.

  29. To echo previous posts, I love that pink coat! Where is it from? Rx
