It's where it all began . . . .
I met my husband in August of 2006. We had our first date at Smokey Bones Restaurant. I was usually cool and confident when I went out with guys, but there was something different about this guy. . . . Maybe it was because he didn't seem disarmed by me like guys usual were. Or . . . maybe it was because he was 6'4" and super handsome.
In any case, as I sat across from him at the table, I couldn't look him in the eye, blushed throughout the entire meal and fumbled over my words. I had no idea what was wrong with me. Dinner went well, so we walked over to the movie theatre and watched the oh so romantic, Talladega Nights . . . . .
Several months went by and our romance progressed. He
I was smitten.
But it wasn't up to just me. I came with baggage. I came with a pet snake that he had to accept. LOL, that didn't come easy. I also came with a fixed in her way, grumpy, will bite you if you piss her off Siamese cat.
Like I said, the dude was smooth. He even won her over.
I think it even shocked her.
So today, for the first time since August of 2006, we went back to the theatre where we saw our first movie together. It was cool to be back there. It was nice to reflect on the long way we've come.
And the story continues . . . .
I participated in two memes in this post.
iHappy Mondays is a meme created by Mummy-time. I was introduced to this meme by Tiny Little Reveries, who has a great blog that I follow. iHappy Mondays is a meme where you post pics that make you happy that you took with your iPhone (or from your regular camera phone if that's what you got, LOL).
Secondly, of course, I participated in the Nerd Mafia's Word Up Yo meme. In this meme, you use the Word of the Week (WOW) in your post. This week's word is fumble. I used the definition - to make, handle, etc., clumsily or inefficiently.
