how it all began.

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..

but the next night.. i got over it. we were having so much fun. we were staying in this amazing house by lake las vegas. sean and i went in one of the bedrooms and just talked. i remember shunning him because of something he said. you know how dwight shuns people on the office? sean was like "fine, i can handle that. i am shunnig you back." and we laid there on opposite sides of the bed not talking. after about 15 minutes sean rolled over to me and said "i can't do this anymore. you win.." and then he kissed me. short and sweet. that was it! we were together every single day after that and dated for about 2 months... yeah..not very long. i never thought i would be one of those people.....
