About Me:

I am a Midwestern Girl currently planning a destination wedding in Florida. I have lived in the Midwest my entire life but I have traveled extensively throughout North America, South America and the Caribbean.

How We Met:

I met Mr. Honey in college at a local bar where me and my friends went to every other night. He came up to talk to me, spitting some terribly cheesy pick up lines. I interrupted his “Did you fall from Heaven because...” line and asked him what he was drinking. He had a pitcher of Captain Morgan and Diet Rum. favorite. I grabbed the pitcher, turned around and walked away. One of my friends said Mr. Honey was just dumfounded. He was in shock, never had a girl steal his drink and walk away. I think he was intrigued, because he came over (after getting a new drink) and asked me out on a date. Sadly, I shut him down. I had just gotten out of a long term relationship and was not interested in meeting anyone. Over the next few weeks Mr. Honey just kept asking (and getting shut down). After the third time, I got tired of saying “No” and accepted. After that date, we were inseparable! I got to know him outside of the bar & Frat Boy scene and slowly but surely fell in love with him. As they say...the rest is history! :)

The Engagement Story:

It was a random Tuesday when we were both off work together. My son was at school, I was upstairs blogging or doing whatever I do while Mr. Honey was downstairs in his man cave. He was wanting to go purchase a new MacBook, but I kept giving him trouble that he couldn’t go spend that much money because he “was trying to save for something special”. That is what he told me every time I wanted to go out and eat, or go to the movies, etc. After texting back and fourth a few times (yes...we are THAT couple that will text in the house that we are both in) I heard him coming up the stairs. I wasn’t really paying much attention when he sat down next to me. I turned to look at him and he had a red box in his hand tied with a ribbon on top. He handed me the box and asked me to open it, so I did. Inside was this Amazingly Beautiful 1.5 Caret Princess Cut Diamond set in White Gold. It took my breath away. I looked at him and he spit out “Will you Marry Me?”. When I screamed “Yes!” (instant water works started) he gave me a hug and kiss and proceeded to tell me to get my shoes on that we were going to Apple. As un-beautiful and un-perfectly planned as it was...I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. Mr. Honey is an unusual breed and I am drawn to his uniqueness. If he would’ve done it traditionally it would not have meant as much to me because I know it would not have been natural for him. It was beautiful it it's own category! *Haha*
