Today some students saw a picture of me and Billy on my desk and they asked me how the heck I got so lucky:) Okay, they asked how Billy and I met, but I know what they were really thinking.
So, I told them….almost the whole story. I thought I would share it on the blog too because it makes me really happy to think about.
I don’t actually have any pictures of when we first met (I didn’t want to creep him out with my picture taking obsession yet) and so I will just post some random pictures from when we first started dating. I talked a little bit about it HERE in my post about how he proposed but thought I would go into more detail about how we met.
My roommates (bff’s) and I randomly decide to move into a brand new apartment complex right before I started my junior year of college. It was awesome. I don’t know why we chose that apartment complex (oh yeah, for the pool) but I am sure glad we did.
The first Sunday that we lived in the new apartment came and we got all dolled up (aka I actually used to get ready more than my now two times a week routine) and headed on over to church. When we pulled into the parking lot we noticed a bunch of guys getting out of the car right next to us.
Billy’s roommates were out of control (and Billy is kind of quiet at first) and so I don’t really remember him when we were talking in the parking lot because his roommates were running around and talking our ears off.
The first time I REALLY saw him was when my roommate (Jessie) and I were sitting in church and Billy walked in front of us to get to his seat………No joke, I leaned over to Jess and said, “I will make out with him” (didn’t tell my students that part). Hey you have to call dibs.
We didn’t actually end up talking at church that day but he was living in the same apartment complex and that same day my roommates and I walked by his apartment, their front door was wide open and we all started chatting. I thought he had a girlfriend and I remember telling my mom that night how bummed I was that he wasn’t available.
Turns out no girlfriend and I received this from him the next day via facebook. PS that is an old phone number, so don’t get offended if I don’t text back. I am too lazy to try and white it out.
We were actually at his apartment hanging out with his roomates and using their internet when he messaged me while he was on his lunch break at work.
I guess I have always been obsessed with using … in everything that I write. It actually looks as though my grammar has improved over the last few years:)
After our first date (Macaroni Grill and then we watched Neverland) he had me hooked and we saw eachother every day for the next two years and then we decided to get married…..best/happiest/awesomest decision ever.
I think I might get in a little trouble for posting this last picture…….Billy doesn’t normally wear tank tops……it was for an 80′s party, even though the people in the background look normal, I think we may have gone overboard.
And we lived happily ever after.
How did you meet your significant other?
Any funny/weird/awkward stories of first dates?
-On a first date one time the guy wouldn’t let me bring my waterbottle into his precious car…..I know I spill a lot but come on, no waterbottle?!?!
