Hopeless Romantic Tag

What two qualities do you want most in your future husband?
A love for God, more than he loves anything else, he must be willing to follow God wherever He leads us. I would also like someone who man enough to admit it when he's wrong... if you know what I mean. He must be caring too, he's got to have a tender heart, and just LOVE children. :) You know, this is kinda silly, I would have to think over this for weeks before the two qualities I wanted most surfaced! Let's just say this, I want someone like my dad.

Is there a fictional character you see as a model for your future husband?
No. I don't think so. But I haven't really thought about it...

Where do you want your wedding?
During the fall, outside somewhere...but it doesn't really matter where it is, it is who is there that really matters.

What are your views on courtship?
Personally, I believe it is the best way. I don't need to say a lot here, because others have already said it so much better. I will wait, no matter how long it takes.

What are your views on your first kiss?
What other views can you have? It is for my husband.

Do you have or want a purity ring/locket
I have a purity locket that my Dad gave to me, and it is special in that way. However, you don't need any type of jewelry to stay pure, and they don't necessarily help. It is just a memorial to show that my Daddy has my heart, and until he gives it away, its his.

Do you have or want a hope chest?
"I'm in the it were..." I do want one, but I couldn't really explain why. You see, I'm a second generation Christian, and my parents didn't do any of this. I suppose somewhere back down the line my ancestors did it, but its died out, not only in my family, but in our culture. I'd like to bring it back in vogue. So, at my request, my father and I are going to make one, and have it done by my 16th birthday next year. Meanwhile, I can start collecting things that will be useful in my own home, as well as heirlooms and such.

Will you wear a veil at your wedding?
I think so.

What kind of wedding dress do you want?
Oh my. There are so many types of gorgeous dresses out there I don't know how I'll ever decide. I have a feeing though, that I'll end up picking something plain but elegant. Maybe a regency gown..?

What flowers do you want in your bouquet?
Calla Lilies. They are

What do you want to name one of your daughters~
Elinor May

What do you want to name one of your sons?
Eric or Edwin

Do you believe in the 'knight-in-shining-armor' view of courtship?
What's that? Sounds great to me. :)

What music do you want to play at your wedding?
Classical, but I don't think I'll play it. :-P And we'll have a hymn or two, or twelve. :) But the reception...

Are you a hopeless romantic?
I think it depends when you ask me. Right now? NO. Tomorrow or the next day? Probably.

Feel free to do this!


  1. I've never seen this tag did a great job answering the questions! :D

  2. I don't have a blog, but I'm copying the tag to a text document so I can do it if I ever get a blog :) I did the same thing for the "I believe in Narnia" blog award and few others. :)

  3. mom LOVES calla lilies!

  4. JO, How did you EVER get so smart and with-it? Daddy and I couldn't possibly be more proud of you. And I have no idea what a cala lilly is, but just warn me if I need to start shopping for them, OK? Make sure you train the E to be smart like you, OK?
