Happy Friday, all! I'm stuck at home trying to get rid of this vile sinus/upper respiratory infection that has been plaguing me since Sunday night. My mom has been wonderful- bringing over meds, kleenex, snacks and she took the baby to her house yesterday and today so I can just rest. It's been such a big help, although I do miss my girl when she's not here. I keep thinking I hear her crying. Aw. I still feel like a rusty, old bumper but instead of laying in bed I thought I'd write a fun post.
This is The Story of Us. You know, how I met my husband and such. Yes, I have written a more detailed post but this is information out of the actual pages of our memory book with our honest answers from ten years ago.
Feel free to copy and paste the questions into your own blog and post with your lovely answers! For those of you without blogs you can post a Facebook note or just do a mass-email. Be sure to include me so I can read your answers!
The Story of Us...
We met on: in July of 2001
At: Harmon Homes magazine - our place of employment
What I looked for in a guy: someone who isn't conceited or too self-involved. Thoughtful, caring, family-oriented, smart, sweet and must have a sense of humor
What I first noticed about him: He was the very, very, very, very quiet boy at work
What he looked for in a girl: family-oriented, smart, very funny, down-to-earth, NOT high-maintenance, very sweet and a pretty smile
What he first noticed about me: pretty smile and adorable laugh
Who introduced us: we met at work
Was it love at first sight? no, but it was "like"
Who flirted more: I did
My first impression of him: quiet, hard-working, funny... but he had a girlfriend
His first impression of me: pretty smile, funny/sarcastic, happy and giggly
We knew it was magnetic attraction when: we started having lunch together everyday at work and talking on the phone and emailing every night. We found tons of coincidences and things we had in common
A Date with Destiny
Who asked whom? I asked him to hang out with me at my friend's apartment
Our first date was unlike any other because: he had a girlfriend haha! It wasn't REEEAALLY a "date" we were just testing us
Whose idea was it? mutual agreement
Where: my friend's old apartment
When: end of June 2002
What we did: listened to music, drew pictures, watched Crank Yankers (ha!), talked a lot and actually fell asleep!
Most memorable moment from our first date: lying on the bed together watching MTV and the song Somewhere Out There by Our Lady Peace was on. It eventually became our song as odd as that sounds haha

It was fun to see all of our old answers. This brought me right back to the days when I first met Gregg. We had SO much fun. We lived simply and were just happy taking drives, listening to our favorite CDs, watching our favorite movies, ordering our favorite foods. It doesn't take a whole lot of effort when you're truly meant for someone. Sure, lots of my "favorites" have changed since then (color, drink, restaurant, fast food, websites namely). But one thing has not and will never change - my love for my sweetheart. He still has that great big smile that lured me in over ten years ago - only now it's a little harder to see under that well-manicured beard of his. (HEYO!) We may not have dream jobs (I don't have a job at all at the moment) but we do have a pretty house and a very pretty child ... we are well on our way to a lifetime of happiness. Love you, babe!
