The Chronicles of Us

Today I am excited to be linking for Valentine's Day Link Up. Here are the questions and my ramblings that hopefully amuse you on this day of loooooovveee;)
                                  


1.) How did you meet your significant other?
Haha he will want me to say "through mutual friends", which, to an extent is true, but it was through a random prank call( I will elaborate in a bit, to take myself off of your "she's crazy radar";)

2.) What/where was your first date?
after our second conversation that lasted 7 and 1/2 hours, we set up a meeting. I lived in Carolina, he in Boston.  He came to visit his friend(you know, the one who "introduced" us) and we had a whole weekend of going around the town and discovering different Raleigh & Durham. The memory of saying "You've never eaten at a Chic Fil A?!!!!" and completely horrified, I rectified that rather quickly. Like immediately.

3.) What's your best relationship advice?
Always have their back in public situations. If you differ on something, wait till you're home to air your discrepancies, no one likes being disrespected by their SO.

                        

4.) What is your most embarrassing moment in front of your SO?

I obviously love concocting different cocktails and visiting various wineries, and we all know I HEART me some bourbon. But I am not a particularly "big" drinker. Just not a fan of drunkeness. There was that one time though, my friend kept filling my wine glass(and I was slightly distracted) and he had to work super late that night for a project and apparently when I over drink, I like to take baths. and my hubs walked in on me conked out in the bath, shriveled up like a prune in frigid water. embuurrrsssiinngg.

5.) What most attracts you to your SO?
Physically...his smile, I love his lips;) his height, he is 6;5 and his voice. hello, see question one. telephone remember?  haha
He is the smartest man I have ever met and he has such character and manners. Sorry, but I grew up in the South and that whole adage about Southern boys and their manners...I've never met a one that compares. and I love my South.

6.) If a movie was made about your SO, what actor/superhero
would play their part?

Funny that Superhero is part of the equation, no questions asked...Dean Cain.

I said I would elaborate on number one. I was 22 and working with a baseball team and one of the guys kept insisting I should "meet" his friend. I had just gotten out of a few less than stellar relationships, I was specific that I didn't want to really date anyone, much less an athlete and he assured me that he was great. I kept holding off and one night we were hanging out and he came up with the idea to prank call him( hello, people I was young;) He gave me a back story that he had met some girl the weekend before and they were going on a date soon, just call and pretend to be her. (cell phones were not big then) Yes, far fetched. if someone told me this story now  I would be incredulous. haha Anyways, I did and he had this voice, it was just wow(and to this day, we do not ever meet new people or go out to eat that it is not mentioned or later someone references my hubs as the one with "the voice") we talked back and forth for about 20 minutes when he finally qui "Ok, this has been fun, but seriously, who is this? I know you're not her because she was from England...and you sound like you're from Alabama"

after the most mortifying pause of my life, I explained and apologized. He was fun about it and just laughed. A few days later, the team was out of town and I was bored and just thinking that I liked his voice and thought he was so nice. I called him at 9:30 that night. I just remember saying " hey, I am the girl you talked to the other night" and him being like "yea, kinda hard to forget" we started talking about everything under the sun, and all I can really recall is this next sentiment " Holy Crap, it's 5:15 in the morning, I have to get up for work in an hour"

It has been 12 years since that phone call and June will ring in 10 years of me being his Mrs.

So, I suppose no matter how foolish it may seem now, I think it was a pretty fulling conversation. Just sayin"

  7. Your relationship advice is great, I need to remember that one. Confession: I didn't even hear of Chic Fil A until I went with my husband to meet his family in Florida. When we got into his sister's car he immediately demanded some Chic Fil A. He was horrified when I asked what that was. Haha!
