Back in the day (ok only 5 years ago!)

Warning--If you don't like sappiness or you don't feel like indulging my lovey-dovey happy mood please skip this post. Check back tomorrow, maybe I'll be whining about something then, but for now please enjoy (or don't) day one of Back in the Day week:

May 16, 2003 all dressed up for prom. Got my tracks in, makeup done, and my dress is accenting my butt just perfect! My boyfriend of 2 weeks has arrived and is standing at the front door waiting for me to emerge so he can come up and greet me. I appear and he goes into shock. As he comes up the stairs to put the corsage on my wrist he is shaking so bad that my family is scared he will fall back down the stairs. And that's when he knew.......

May 22, 2003 I'm getting ready to go with my boyfriend to his best friend's high school graduation. My mom and sister are out of town and my dad is on a fishing trip. I'm sitting down waiting for him to come and I get a call telling me that his mom is running late and they won't have time to come get me and that he's sorry. I say it's fine and sit in the house upset. An hour or two later I get a call telling me to get ready, he's coming to take me out to dinner to apologize for acting like I wasn't important. We end up going to the same restaurant that I went to for my very first date. Except this time was much better, we talked, laughed, shared food, and even had strangers tell us how cute we were. When we got back to my house nobody was home and the rule was no boys in the house. He said that was fine and we sat on the bench out front and talked for hours. When I got up to go inside he turned me around to give me a kiss and then walked across the lawn. He turned around half way to his car to smile at me. And that's when I knew........

August 2003 The day before I leave for college. I was spending my day with my boyfriend and my parent's called because they needed me to come home to drop them off at the Redskin's game. We pulled up in the driveway and my family was outside getting ready to get in the car. When it was time for me to say goodbye to my boyfriend, I start crying like I just witnessed the death of everybody I knew. My family stopped and stared. My boyfriend froze and stared. Nobody knew what was wrong with me. I cried and cried until finally my sister came and got me. And that's when EVERYBODY knew (even the neighbors with their nosey selves!)......

That this was love! It happens for everybody differently but when I sit down to think about major turning points in our relationship these 3 really stuck out in realizing that I loved The Count. I don't know if back then anybody thought two 17 year-olds would make it this far but we have and it's been great! Last week pink (she's on the blogroll check her out) asked about when to say I love you and my opinion is whenever it feels right and you mean it. The count and I actually said I love you on May 22, 2003 and the only reason I remember it is because we still fight over who said it first. He said I was so mesmerized after he kissed me that I said it. I say that when he turned around as he was walking to his car he said it. I guess the world will never know......

Girl I didn't have time to be getting in trouble! My mom always found out when I was lying so I learned quickly to just act right. I know our kids are going to be like mom and dad we don't care! I think I'm going to right a book for them to read about us haha (I'll include all the juicy details so I can scar them for life!)

pink said...

Therapeutic Musings said...

Darn, so I can't tell the kids how they were conceived? I just know it's going to be a good story. I guess I shouldn't include picture from the honeymoon either then huh?

And I don't know what the heck you are talking about some holler dun!I read it and was like huh is this some new slang, lol!

Girl we have different accounts of how everything went down. I'm going to email you a link to your wedding website....our first page is us disagreeing!

pink said...

Im sure that does NOT do anything for your appetite. and you keep your "honeymoon pics" in your fun box. you know what the "fun box" is right? well yes then keep it there. although you could channel your inner Candy and give us a honeymoon post ;)...lmao!!! oh the hilarity!! ummm but i need you to blog...like pronto! cuz ise bored.
