So, when I first started my blog- my friend Lindsey tagged me- and oh, that was what-- way back in Feb?? So- here I am... finally doing it! LOL! I'll do 2 just for the fun of it! So- speaking of husbands and date nights- I'll steal one from my friend Elise's blog about husbands.
Where did you meet your husband?
Chet and I met at the Back to School Bash at UVSC in 99'. I had just graduated from high school and was a BYU reject.. so I went to the next best thing.. UVSC! Him and his roomates went to go scope out the "new crop" and lucky for me I was there. He was the first guy I met... but not the first guy I dated. I promised myself that I would NOT date seriously once I got up to school- because I had just gotten out of a relationship of 2 years in highschool... and looky! I got married to the first guy I met! Goes to show you, no matter what you think or how you want your life to pan out- God will usually have something else in store for you:)
What was the first thing you said to your husband?
"YES!" He asked me to dance and scared me half to death- as there were 4 of him and his roommates and they were dancing next to me and my roommates, and as soon as the 1st slow song came on he literally JUMPED at me and was like, "Hi, I'm Chet, want to dance?" I later learned- he had to jump at me, because apparently I was the one all of him and his roomates were "scoping" and he HAD to get to me first! :)
Where was your first date?
Ay-ay-ay-ay! Our first date was kind of comical! So, he called and asked if I wanted to go rollerblading with him and his roommate... well I didn't have rollerblades- so I just went a long and watched while they attempted "tricks" in a parking lot near campus. While they were off doing their tricks- I was standing on the sidelines watching, when a pizza delivery dude came by on his bike and stopped and talked to me the whole time. So- I guess my date was technically with the pizza dude, while Chet claims the date was him showing off his cool moves! The pizza guy was kind of psycho- so Chet finally came over and rescued me. But that was our first date - me as the 3rd wheel until pizza dude!
Where was your first kiss?
Our first kiss was after we had watched Enemy of the State at his Condo. I had fallen asleep on the couch, and he had been sitting in the recliner chair next to the couch. Anyways- he decided it would be nice to wake me up with a kiss, and take me home! It was very sweet:)
Did you have a long or short courtship/engagement?
We dated from October til about May- and then we were engaged from May til' September when we got married. So- our courtship was longer then our engagement.
Where did you get engaged?
He proposed to me in California at the Cliff House in Folsom... it was actually on the pier right below the Cliff House and then we walked up to the Cliff House and had dinner. I always make fun of him, because he got down on one knee to propose, and then a boat started to come up to the pier and he quickly stood up and said "will you marry me" Like he was embarrassed or doing something wrong! It was great!
How was the honeymoon?
We went to Lake Tahoe on our honeymoon and it was beautiful! Absolutely stunning! Oh, yeah- and it was great! ;)
So, here is to my MAN! I love you sweets:)
Whose turn is it next?
Lindsey, Sonja, Jamie, Andrea, Morgan, Monica and anyone and everyone who wants to, because you are ALL special to me:)
