In the Beginning........
Ok so I just messed up and didn't save before I moved on.....so we will try this again.
So, I thought it would be fun to have an about us blog to begin our site.
Eric and I met in Spokane, WA at an LDS Singles dance. He wasn't out of high school yet, but his brother(whom I was friends with) dragged him along. His brother pointed me and my best friend out and said, "Flirt with those two; they'll like you." I danced with him once and thought: "What a cute kid. Too bad he's so young." (I am a year-and-a-half older)
For the longest time, actually thought he was someone else's brother. Infact, I was friends with his older sister too before I dated him. I didn't have any idea that they were all siblings. But, about a year later at a Monday night activity, magic happened. We had stayed later the week before in the parking lot of the church and talked. About what? I dunno. Then on March twelfth, 2001 after talking late into the evening, he invited me to go get ice cream at Shari's. We talked there until about four or five in the morning. We wrote on a napkin dates we were going to go on before he left on his mission.
That was basically how we got together. I know. I am really long winded.
BUT IT GOES ON....After dating for six months, Eric left to serve a mission in Venezuela for TWO YEARS!!!!. It was hard to see him go. I only got to talk to him a couple of times while he was gone. In the meantime, I also went on a mission that was cut short due to health problems (I'll spare you the details).
Eric came home September 11, 2003. We were "officially" engaged(another story to tell) on September 30th, married November 15th and had a magical honeymoon in Disneyland.
In February of 2004 we found out we were going to have a baby. Along came our little bundle of Boo. Two years later our big Bubba was born.
I guess that's us in a nutshell....a rather large nutshell as it turns out......
I'm not sure what these blogs are to do...so any input on what you want to see would be great!!!
