Show us your life - how you met your husband/fiance/boyfriend

Today over a Kelly's Korner its all about how your met your husband/fiance [boyfriend]... and yes I am that annoying blogger who is going to participate even if Justin and I are still dating.

I always have a plan in life... surprised??? i planned on graduating from school, getting a job, living at home for a year, buying a condo and then potentially start looking for a boyfriend...

well those plans came to a screeching halt within 24 hours of moving back home from school...

my sister and i were both on semesters so we both moved back in the same day to our parents... and my mom has a 1 box rule - you unpack the box in the garage, dust detox it, and then put everything in the box away, or put it in the attic for your own place later down the road.. so alli and i had been unpacking boxes for 5 hours that morning, and i told her that i had been home for almost 24 hours without any chipotle, however we are going to wait until the lunch rush because i don't want to see ANYONE... we are to go with our diva sunglasses on, get our burrito bowls, not collect $200, and come RIGHT home to enjoy them before heading back to work on our unpacking...

so sure enough I roll up to chipotle looking lovely as ever i step out of the car wearing this...

i had to put back on the exact same outfit so ya'll could see how pitiful it actually was - the pink pants are terry cloth - i got them from the boat dock down in kentucky [what was i thinking], my hair was a HOT mess. and i had the ever so attractive soccer adidas sandals on - i mean who could resist this outfit! i'm surprised instyle didn't want me for their latest edition!

and who do i see? none other than Justin and Bret [who i have known since middle school], so of course I had to say hi to them, I couldn't just ignore them, we sat there and talked for a few minutes and Justin invited me up to a bar on Wednesday night where a bunch of guys from the home town hang out... and i thought to myself, why not? i have no friends now that i have graduated and left them all up in toledo, i might as well go up and join them for a drink... and the rest is history...

our first date was to the memorial tournament. i was all excited because i had tickets to the sunday's final round for the first time ever - and i was looking forward to it, but then my mom and dad told me that we had a memorial service for one of our family friend's dad's who had passed away, and i was going to have to miss the golf tournament to be with my family, which i was fine with, but a little bummed that i was going to be missing the tournament for the first time in 10 years... and thats when Justin said if i can get tickets for us, would you like to go on saturday.. i should have known at that point, that he would do anything to make me happy.. because he pulled through and got us tickets for the tournament - and we had so much fun. i will never forget standing talking to a girl i work with saying, if this guy can figure out a way to get us tickets to the memorial tournament this weekend, i will marry him... and low and behold here we are 4 years later...

i am so lucky that i have found him, he is my best friend, my rock, and the person i go to when i need support. he knows when i need a text message that simply says "i love you" or he knows when i need a hug even if i don't ask for one.. its amazing to know that i have someone in my life who knows me better than i know myself...

its amazing when you think you have your planned all figured out.. but then it goes to the wayside, because God has much bigger plans for you than you will even know. I'm beyond thankful that my plans didnt end up the way I initially planned them to be - my life is perfect - and i'm living my life one day at a time, with an amazing man right beside me!

go check out how other people have met their significant others on Kelly's Korner! Happy Friday ya'll :)
