*pic comment- That look in his eyes is how I know no matter what happens that we will be ok.
I was going to start my 6 years ago today posts on New Years Eve, mostly because I hadn't thought about it until after the date I first met Hubby had passed. But then, my co worker asked me this question today: (note-names may have been changed to protect people's identities)
F [7:27 AM]:
HUBBY SAID YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM FIRST TIME YOU LOOKED @ HIM... IS IT TRUE?
Meagan [7:29 AM]:
YOU GUYS ARE FUNNY
F [7:29 AM]:
IS IT TRUE
Meagan [7:30 AM]:
I WOULDN'T SAY FELL IN LOVE. HE HAD A GIRLFRIEND. ITS WEIRD THAT WE BOTH VIVIDLY REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME WE MET. THERE WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAT HAPPENED
F [7:30 AM]:
Meagan [7:31 AM]:
WHY ARE YOU ASKING? CAUSE YOU ARE COMPARING YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO OURS OR CAUSE YOU CAN'T BELIEVE SOMEONE COULD FALL IN LOVE WITH HIS FACE?
F [7:32 AM]:
HES GOT A PRETTY FACE
Meagan [7:32 AM]:
LOL I KNOW
Meagan to Hubby:
F SAID, “HUBBY SAID YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM FIRST TIME YOU LOOKED @ HIM... IS IT TRUE?”
Hubby [7:31 AM]:
Hubby [7:31 AM]:
F IS ON CRACK
Hubby [7:31 AM]:
BUT THATS PROB TRUE
I thought this was funny and I have been waiting for some funny work conversations to post on here. But now I have to explain the first time we met.
The story begins my freshman year of college. I was a liberal studies major. This is the major you should choose if you want to be an elementary school teacher or if you want to take easy classes. I think you all know, I was the first one, but didn't mind the second part. As a freshman you have to take some general ed classes, but there are some teachery versions of some general ed classes as well. I chose to take the teachery versions whenever I could. The first day of my teachery biology class I sat down by some girls that looked nice. We started talking about what year we were and where we lived. I found out one of the girls lived in the same "village" as me. I said, "We should be friends!" (yes I am a dork, but that is why this girl, you, and everyone else love me) *fate moment-honestly that isn't something I would normally say and didn't say to anyone else I met in my classes.
Trying to keep the story short so hang with me I hope you don't get confused. The girl I met in bio, lets call her R, and I did become friends. We had several classes together and lived really close to each other (oh Uncle Chris, if you are reading this, you know who R is). She took another teachery psych class with a girl named B and they too became friends. When we were all deciding where to live *fate moment-my friends and Rs friends coincidentally decided to live in the same apartment complex down the street.
Through the year we became friends, R would mention her friend B. We talked a lot and she told me about her roommate and some of their other friends too. She mentioned B's boyfriend and things they were up to in their classes. Our sophomore year, R had a birthday party (it was in September, that is why it is 6 years ago and a couple months).
I don't know if you all know this, but I have a terrible memory. For example: watching SYTYCD last night (fyi: why can't my favorite dancer ever be America's favorite dancer?) I didn't recognize some of the people in the top 20 or some of the dances they did and I swear I watched every episode.
So knowing the fact that I have a terrible memory, what I am about to say is weird! We went out a lot in college. Lost of people had birthday parties. We took lots of pictures. Maybe I remember a lot of the details because we took pictures that night, I don't know. But I remember what I was wearing, how I did my hair, etc. I remember walking into my friend's kitchen and being introduced to B's boyfriend, Hubby! I also remember thinking, "Wow! He's hot!". You guys know, you have seen his pictures ;). But I was no longer in the business of home wrecking so I think I took some jello shots and continued on my merry way.
Hubby remembers this night too. That is why we say it was love at first sight. He remembers meeting me and thinking I was pretty. But he doesn't remember meeting any of my roommates (that is pretty strange because they were pretty hot!). Trippy huh?!
Things at this point were not so great with B and Hubby. R and Hubby told me later that R and her roommates got in a fight that night and Hubby and B also had some words. I don't know when she started being sketchy with another guy or when they officially broke up, but it was around this time 6 years ago. Look for the next part of our story on New Years Eve!
