Excitement! Pics! How I Met Hubs!

I have a week off!!!!!


That's all, I won't rub it in :)


Okay, maybe a little!  Next week I'll be sleeping a lot, shopping some, sleeping some more, creating for St. Patrick's Day, organizing my theme papers, and oh, did I mention sleeping...?  :)


Now I'm done braggin'.


Today we made the little Georges and Abes from my President's Day {Craftivities: Washington & Lincoln} packet.

The kiddies were beyond excited to hear that Abe kept things in his hat, and loved writing about it!
This little one would keep a "cat in the hat."  Dr. Seuss on the brain??
Either that or she copied me, because I wrote that I'd keep a kitten inside my Abe hat, too, lol.
Please go visit Miss Squirrels and see how her little Presidents turned out... There may or may not be a vampire George Washington in her class... :)


Now it's time for a little linky action:  Mrs. B. is hosting How'd you meet your hunny? so I thought I'd link up... who doesn't love a little love story? :)


My husband and I officially "met" in middle school.  We went to school together from 4th grade  through HS.  He was like Mr. Popularity {captain of the football team, Homecoming King...} but didn't travel with the other "popular" kids... he was friends with my friends.  But we weren't friends.  I was actually good friends with *his* best friend... in fact, his best friend and I went to prom together.  And even still, me and hubs never talked.  It was like we didn't know each other, even though we clearly did.
The oldest pic I could find on the computer!
Fast forward to the summer between fresh and soph year of college.  Hubs and I ran into each other at a house party.  We ended up sitting next to each other on the same couch, chit chatting {dare I say flirting??} all night.  At one point during the night, he had to run home to get something.  I was terrified he wouldn't come back to his spot on the couch.  He gave me his unopened drink to hold, ran home, came back... and found me again.


I now joke by saying, "You had me at 'hold my drink!'"  {Jerry Maguire reference, though I've never seen the movie, lol}.
From a few years back, at the Bronx Zoo!  I am wearing a shirt!
So anywho, after that party we made plans to hang out solo later that week.  We did and then.... then I had to go back to college two hours away!  At this point I was already head over heels in love with the *idea* of the two of us together.  We kept up our little relationship via AIM, alternating who would IM first {you remember those days right?  When you wanted to IM your crush every.time.they.signed.on. but didn't want to be a stalker so you had to wait and see if they'd IM you first?} and then we moved onto texts... and visits... and finally at the end of November, he made us official!!
Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right :)
On our five year anniversary he proposed, and we were married this July.  We celebrated seven years together in November.  And that's that!  My little love story!


Have a great weekend, long weekend... or week off!! ;)

Sweet story! I was a big AIM (dare I say) stalker. I eventually assigned my hubby his own sound when he signed on. Now you have me reminiscing about the sound of the door opening and closing and the frantic checks to find out who it was. Ahh, memories :)
