Show & Tell; How I met your Father

How I met Your Father
1. Tell us about how and when you met your love and what attracted you most to him.

Well. This story. It's been on my blog a couple of times, but I always love to share it. One, because I love our sweet little story. And two, there are always people who haven't heard it.

So how did I meet Andrew? Ahem. Without going into too much detail... I will say this. It was our second semester of our freshmen year at college. I had just moved in with a girl I barely knew {because of original roommate issues} and we were still getting to know each other. We had gone out to separate places one night and decided to meet back at the room around 1ish in the morning. You know, about the time that people normally go to sleep. You would think.

She proceeded to ask me if it was okay if her "Friends" from high school come over. Two boys. Sure? I guess. Who am I to say no?

The two boys come. Two boys by the name of Andrew, and his roommate {and best friend} Chris. Andrew was cute you know. I thought, hm, he's a pretty good lucking guy... why haven't I heard of him yet? But then shrugged off the thought almost as immediately as it came into my head. Afterall, I wanted to go to sleep, ya know?
You know who DID go to sleep though? As soon as these two "Friends" show up? Oh you know, the roommate that invited them.

We then ended up sitting in the dorm {while Laura snoozed} until about 5am talking a mile a minute. Me and Andrew that is. His friend? Oh ya, remember him? He wanted to shoot himself in the foot and was BEGGING to leave.

Finally, they left. I hit the sack, turned off the lights, and didn't think anything of it.
Andrew though, {come to find out later on} said to his roommate {as he closed the door behind him}.... "She's going to be mine."

And the rest? Well, the rest is history :)
And the longest answer to a question goes to..... ME!

2. Show us the very first {or one of the first} pictures you guys ever took together. {Feel free to show us more than one}

Oh joy. Good thing I was so good looking back in the day {insert sarcasm}.

3. Tell us some of your favorite memories that you two had together.

Oh man, where to begin. We have so many that I am smiling/blushing already just thinking about them. I love the beginning stage of our relationship {and where it has lead us}. We were seriously the most love birds of all love birds, completely smitten, and obsessed with one another. Andrew is one special man, and he touched my heart in ways I had never thought possible.

I remember our first concert together... the OAR concert. We couldn't keep our hands off of each other.
I remember when he first asked me to officially be his "girlfriend."
I remember Andrew spending walking me to every class, and back.
I remember laying together after just a few weeks of dating and talking about our future, our marriage, and our children.
I remember spring break that year. It was the BEST vacation I had ever had. It was also the time when Andrew first said I love you.

And I will stop there because the mushy gushy stuff is out of control right now.

4. Tell us your favorite qualities about this man, what makes him "the one."

Honest. Huge heart, one of his best qualities that he will ever have. Giving. Kind. Generous. Thoughtful. Strong. An amazing father. An amazing son-in-law {which is so important to me}.

5. Tell us what your "date nights" typically look like.

Now or then? Ha. I will tell you what our FAVORITE kind of date night is. And that is us getting dolled up, heading downtown, ordering too many things off the menu and sharing a couple bottles of wine {not when pregnant} at our favorite restaurant, Ruths Chris, and then getting a hotel room for the night.

We always have a great time. Spend too much money, but always have a great time.

We like to do this for birthdays, special occasions, and every couple of months. Again... when I'm not pregnant, obviously.
