Six years ago today (special Saturday edition)

Oh I forgot to mention yesterday that we don't really consider any of these an anniversary. I thought it was weird when I did the NYE post and people said Happy Anniversary. Um, happy anniversary of your husband ignoring you at a party? Yeah I try not to think about that! I'm not sure if we will still celebrate our dating anniversary. Its been six years people! We are kind of over it. I forgot about our three month wedding anniversary. Ok on with the epic love story!

So, Hubby called me. Even though both Hubby and his best friend at the time were showing interest in me, I was not looking for a relationship. I always give other people looking for love the advice that it will happen when you aren't looking for it. Because that is what happened to me. I was focused on school and having fun with my friends. So Hubby was trying to chat it up with me and I was trying to get him off the phone. Also the reason I tease him and say I never actually gave him my phone number. I told him to call R at her apartment. I started to give him the number when I remembered he probably had it since his ex girlfriend lived there. Yeah, awkward!

So I got off the phone with him and talked everything over with my roommates. They were dying to know which boy I liked. I am the total drama queen and I remember rolling on the kitchen ground because the whole situation was awkward and I did not want to be any part of it. Plus my roommates and I were weird and rolled on the ground frequently. Best friend at the time had some major minus points. He had a two week dating rule and some other problems. Hubby had the minus point of his ex girlfriend being an acquaintance and living just down the street from me. I had two, count em, two previous boyfriends that went back to their ex girlfriends. I was a little convinced it was my curse. Did not want to get involved in drama with an acquaintance and didn't want to send another one back to their ex. I decided to see what would happen that night roller skating.

Well, best friend at the time didn't show up. So it ended up being a double date. Oh I should mention, we weren't regular roller skaters. I think R and her boyfriend wanted to go cause they hadn't been in a long time. We haven't been since. Anyways, Hubby totally swept me off my roller skates! He held my hand during couples skates. He told the dj it was my birthday. He told me his was totally over his ex. Bought me a slurpee.

Then we decided to go back to my apartment and watch a movie. Hubby put his arm around me while we were watching the movie. I don't remember where R and her boyfriend were sitting. I just remember that best friend at the time showed up and sat on the other side of me. It was beyond awkward! Then there was a stand off! R and her boyfriend left after the movie. So I was stuck with the two boys and it felt like they both thought whoever stayed last would end up with me. I know, you are surprised I'm still alive!

Best friend at the time finally left! Hubby and I watched MTV and talked until 6am. You know how the videos and the intro are different in the morning. It is called like jump start or something. Yeah it changed to that and I was like um bed time!

We continued to hang out throughout the week. Then he asked me if he could take me on a date on Friday night. I will continue with when he picked me up for our date next week!


  1. I keep telling ya, this should be a movie;)

  2. Awww what a great idea!

    I could do one about Muscles and I but it'd be looonngg and complicated!! Considering I met him when I was like 2 weeks old haha

    And he has a CRAZY ex so there was alot of drama..

    Hmm.. come to think of it, that would probably make a great read ;) haha

    P.S. I am 5'5/5'6.
