here goes #1 in the wedding post challenge!
1. how it all began: how you met, first date, first kiss, how long did you date? first picture together.....etc.
sean and i met in high school actually. we went to different schools, but we had mutual friends. we didn't really get to know each other at the time though. when i came back from fiji and australia, i got a job with my sister at first colony mortgage. ironically sean was working there too. we started talking immediately. sean was really nervous around me. i caught him staring at me at our company luau a few days later and told him to stop being a pansy and just come talk to me. he walked over bashfully and said "was i that obvious?". we sat and talked for hours. he took my phone and put his number in it, under the name "the man". i invited him to my softball game that night. i didn't know if he would show up. he said he had a lot of homework. when i was out on the field i looked up to see my parents in the stands. guess who was sitting next to them talking to them? sean. he had only met my mom earlier that day. i was shocked. i immediately got butterflies.
the next night a big group of us hung out in the canyon and had a bonfire. this was the first picture taken of us.
our first official date happened the following week. we went to chili's and thought we were going to a josh grobin concert that he had to go to for a music class. sean for some reason got john schmidt and josh grobin mixed up though. it was pretty darn funny. i kept saying "do you already have the tickets?" and he was like "no you just get them at the door.." i thought that seemed odd for a josh grobin concert. every time we hear a josh grobin song i give him a hard time about it..john schmidt was awesome by the way. sean pretended to lead the music the whole time. i was embarrassed but it made me laugh so hard. i loved that we could be total goofballs around each other.
the following weekend, a group of us decided to go to vegas for fun. up until this point, sean and i had only held hands. i was kind of nervous to already go on a trip with him. the 2nd night that we were there, i remember walking on the streets and sean and i were talking about someone who had a baby. i can't remember why. i remember saying "oh man, i will be such a mess when i have a baby. i will for sure have to have an epidural." sean said, "oh don't worry. we'll make sure you get the drugs." i was like "we?" i didn't know what to say after that. it kind of freaked me out. but the more i thought about it? the more i liked the sound of it. but i was still kind of scared that sean was expecting more out of this than me. i became sort of distant that night..
