Our Love Story

Once upon a time a boy got into the car of a girl he didn't know.  The rest is history!

Well that's the short version at least.  

I wrote about it here and here, but below is the (mostly) full version:

It happened on February 28, 2012.

One of my friends, A, from high school was playing for the Rattlers at the time. Since the team was in training camp, the players were all staying in the same hotel.  Since A had previously had his license suspended, he needed rides everywhere. That afternoon, he asked if I would give him a ride to speak to kids at a youth sports training thing he runs.  Now, this place was NOT close.  By not close, I mean about 25-30 miles away.  I really didn't want to give him a ride, but since it was for children and I’m pretty much too nice, I said ok.  I am so glad I did. 

Meanwhile, C had arrived in Arizona about 3 days before this. He was originally going to play for another team, but ended up getting traded (on my birthday!) and made his way to Arizona for training camp. He didn’t know a single guy on the team yet, so that evening he was just kind of hanging out in the lobby with nothing to do.  When my friend A walked by, he randomly asked C if he wanted to come and speak to the kids too. C was just planning on lounging around and didn’t really want to go, but at the last minute he changed his mind.  I am so glad that he did. 

Because I didn’t really feel like waiting around alone for A to do his thing with the kids, I had brought a friend and thought we’d find something to do while A was busy.  When we pulled up to the hotel, A came out and started crawling into the back seat (I have a 2 door car) because one of his new teammates was going to come along.  Then out the door came C.  I remember my first thoughts being “Oh man, he’s cute.  Who is this boy?” A introduced C real quick, then he climbed in the front seat next to me and we headed out.  I couldn’t stop thinking about how cute he was and obviously made sure to do the ring check right away!

C was supposed to talk to the kids at the end of their training so he had an hour or so to kill.  My friend and I had planned on grabbing dinner at that point, so we invited him along.  We all ended up at Margaritaville drinking margaritas and chatting.  He was actually late getting back because we were having so much fun!  

After watching him speak to the kids and seeing how great he was with them, I liked him even more.  I remember I kept telling my friend, “I like this guy. I wonder if he is single?”  We spent the night trying to figure it out, but never did. Once he was done, we decided to go out again to a place called Fat Tuesday’s to get “adult” slushies (they have alcohol in them).  Keep in mind, this was a week night…..I never go out on weeknights!  But we did and I had a blast.  I wish I had a picture of us that night, but alas I do not.  I only have a picture of him with my friend….womp womp. 

I honestly can’t remember how we exchanged numbers or whatnot, but I am so glad we did.  We ended up talking constantly. I really liked him, but I had no clue how he was feeling.  Then we had our first real date.  We went to dinner, rented a movie and drank a bottle of wine. We spent the entire night inching closer and closer together and then he finally kissed me. Right after he kissed me he said “I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been wanting to kiss you since I got into the car.”  (The car he means is my car the first night we met).  
The rest is history!  I actually still have the empty bottle of wine we drank, we displayed it in a special box at our wedding :)
