Need to know information

I was trying to write a blog about something and realized you guys have no idea who I am nor do you know anything about me. In order for most of my stories to make sense, you would need to know some things about a huge part of my life: My fiance. Let me give you a little background.

My fiance {who shall henceforth be called "The Count" {another story for another day} and I met in 8th grade when he transferred to my middle school from private school. It turns out he actually lived in the neighborhood across from mine for 12 years prior to us meeting. Anyway, I liked, no loved, no was obsessed (I have the notes passed, diary entries, and yearbook inscriptions to prove it) with him. I thought he was the cutest thing since Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Usher! But he didn't like me, so I moved on and forgot about him in high school. Fast forward to senior year. This dude was in half my classes! I began and ended my day with him. We became friends over 2 things. 1. This lesbian was determend to make me hers and I was not having it, so whenever he saw her getting to friendly he would call me over so I could sit with him and talk. 2. My senior pictures were awesome! Let me just tell you, I was very jeans, tshirt, glasses, ponytail, and acne in high school. When I bought my pictures in, dudes were like "oh my God, I must have one of these" they actually really looked good. Well The Count sat next to me and took people's orders for my senior picture and helped me distribute them. We had a lot of fun joking around about different people and things during the picture passing out time. Trying to make this long story short, I had a boyfriend that I thought (and he knew I thought and he also thought) he was the good Lord's gift to the world. We had been together for my whole Senior year and we were going to the same college (that was pure coincidence!). Of course this trifling {insert insults of choice here} broke up with me right before prom! (He didn't go to my school and I found out what happened, but that's yet another story for another day) So I was left with no date, and I was not extroverted enough to be a lone ranger. Anyway, The Count decided we should go and just take pictures together. My best friend then decided we should just go to prom together, and we went along with that. He came over to meet my parents 2 weeks before prom (May 4), and it was a wrap! When he got home that night, he called me and asked me to be his girlfriend, and we have been together ever since (5 years). He almost blew it on our first date though (May 9). He was walking me to my school bus and we decided to go to the movies that night, but neither one of us had a car. When we got home and talked to our parents it was decided his mom would pick me up on her way home from work. Ok, got to his house, met his family and off we went. We went to the movies, and he let me pick the movie *bonus points in my book, because I picked a movie based on my favorite childhood book, and he went along with it*. But when we got to the ticket counter he only bought one ticket. That's right, this dude didn't even buy my ticket! It's a big joke to us now, but at the time I was like oh no brotha, I'm worth $7! The only thing that saved him and got him another chance was his music choice in the car. He brought a collection of cd's with him since he was driving his mothers car. All of the cd's were gospel cd's. Gospel rap, Gospel groups, all things holy, lol. I was sooooo freaking impressed. A 17-year-old black male, hangs with the "cool kids", smart, attractive, and funny, was confident and strong enough in his walk with the Lord to admit to his girlfriend of one week that this was his music of choice and that he really didn't listen to anything else. It was such a shock to me, because other than myself and my sister, I never knew anybody else like that. It's why I truly believe we are soul mates. Even from a young age, our souls were so in tune with God, and in turn, he knit our souls together {wiping the tears from my eyes, geez I'm at work}. So I stuck around and we went to prom together the next week (May 16) and he proceeded to tell me that I was going to be his wife. He proposed with a rubber band that I actually wore on my finger for like a month! We have made it through so much in the last 5 years {many more stories for many more days} and I'm super happy to be marrying the love of my life on October 11, 2008!

Trust me, we make people puke all the time lol. But I do think when you get off you should march over to him, punch him in the chest and tell him it's time for him to wife you, then walk off! That would be quite exciting for all! And trust, we plan to have a great honeymoon (now if I could only keep my mom and aunts from talking about my honeymoon plans on a daily basis)!

honestly...i dont even kno if im ready to get married. i want to, but its a very big step that when i make it...i want it to be for life. ive seen too many people get married, divorced, married and divorced again and thats not what i want for myself. its the same with his fam...so i think were both apprehensive about getting married right now.

Now about ur mom talkin bout ur honeymoon....tell mommy that is maaad inappropriate!! lol...im sure you dont want to discuss the goings on of ur honeymoon con tu madre!! lol

I tell her every time that this is not a mother daughter conversation. Then my aunt's jump in, and they're just nasty!

But I understand about the married for life part. Both of our parents have lasted until death do us part, but none of my cousins have. It's kind of scary. But we know we'll make it. I used to always be like "you know leaving me is not an option. Till.death.do.us.part.....till.death" He just looks at me like I'm psycho!

I LOVE it! That story was too cute! =)

Congrats on the upcoming nuptuals as well. How's the wedding planning coming along? Don't let it stress you out girl (a college friend of mine got married last October and she said the planning was one of the most stressful things). I'm so excited for you!

Your fiance sounds like my little brother. He's the same with his music choices. An 18-year-old popular kid, on the baskeball team, the whole nine, and will straight JAM to his gospel CD's! And he started college yestarday. I'm so proud!

*ahem*

But this is about you. =)

Anywho... Congrats and I hope you guys have a WONDERFUL wedding and BLESSED marriage. =) =)
