Jaren is going to have to tell most of this because I don't remember a whole lot of it. After he tells about it I'll tell everyone what I remember.
Goes to show what a great first impression he made ;)
The end of February was a cold one, with no end in sight. My parents had acquired a taste for hamburgers from a particular eatery. It was for this that I came into town to pick up these particular hamburgers, and low and behold there she was right as I walked in the door. She wore a red t-shirt and a green apron. I thought she was very cute. I gave her my order and sat and waited. I noticed that she had a class ring on that was very similar to the colors of a neighboring high school, so I assumed that she was from around here hopefully going to college as I was, hoping that she was not still in high school. But to my dismay she was on the phone with someone talking about plans that evening and they concluded by saying I love you over the phone. There was no need to continue pursuing this girl, for one minute more. No need to ask for her number. As I paid and picked up the food I asked if she went to this neighboring high school, she pulled this face and said no, I'm going to college. Well that did it. Little did I know how things would change.
He' s such a good story teller :)
I remember a guy coming in and ordering take out. It was slow and he sat across from the counter where the till was. I think i chatted with him a little, but I was mostly runnin around. My roommate at the time, Lindsy had called and asked when I was going to be home. We said "I love you," at the end of the conversation. And Jaren thought I was telling a boy that. haha.
When he was paying he asked if I went to the High School there and I was so disgusted because people thought I looked like a High School student all the time and it drove me nuts! I was only 19 and I'm sure I looked like I was 17, because even now people tell me I look like I'm 18. I told him very matter of factly, "No. I go to the college. I've been out of High School for almost 2 years." Like I was so old or something. :)
That's all I remember about it. When we started to date he told me about this and asked who I was talking to on the phone and I barely remembered that night. Since then I've really dug at my memories to remember any thoughts I might have had. The only thing is that I couldn't believe he thought I was in High School or from Idaho.
I'm sure glad he came back the few weeks later.
To Be Continued.....
My Mother - In - Law had a great idea of blowing bubbles while we walked down the stairs. The pictures turned out pretty but in quite a few of them bubbles were in Jaren's face - but not mine. Haha. Now, he must have thought he wanted to make this look, "natural" by smiling at everyone and me.
But I didn't. I walked down those stairs hamming it up for the camera. It's so funny to look that them all in a row. There is not one where he is smiling at the camera. And there were a lot more - I just narrowed it down to posting three so you could get the idea.
Awwe... he wanted to share this happy moment with me but all I wanted to do was share it with the camera. No surprise there - I'm a total camera hog.
But with this one my face isn't the most cute, which makes it all the more funny to me. My dress was pulling me behind it. It was very hard to step down the steps feeling like I was dragging 20 pounds.
