All About My Other Half1. Tell us about how and when you met your love and what attracted you most to him.
I have told everyone how the Mister and I met before, but I like to share. :) The Mister and I met on Myspace. It was back when Myspace was still cool and before Facebook took over the world. With Myspace you could browse profiles and you could put things in like an age range, sex, education level etc. I had browsed around a few times, but was always to chicken to send a message to anyone. The Mister had also been browsing and he said he came across my profile. (I had seen his too, but he didn't know because of my chickenness.) Fortunately, he was not as chicken as I was. This is the first email he ever sent me:
After that we emailed back and forth for about a month before we met for our first date. In our emails we were able to learn a lot about each other, as well as joke around. (I haven't gotten rid of my Myspace account because I like to go back and read them every once in a while.) On our first date he asked so many questions (and not in a creeper way) and he really listened. That is probably what really attracted me to him first.
2. Here are some of our first pictures together. They are all self portraits taken in the spring and summer of 2008.
3. Tell us some of your favorite memories that you two had together.
We've been lucky enough to take some amazing vacations together
San Diego, Disneyland, Vegas, Disneyworld
But my favorite vacation was our week long trip to the Oregon coast when we got engaged.
He listens (to what I need)
He makes me laugh (when I need it)
He is practical (when I am not)
He supports me (through all my big and small ideas)
5. Tell us what your "date nights" typically look like.
Our typical dates are dinner, movies... regular stuff. Our best dates are day time stuff: hiking, beach trips, local festivals.
Come back later this week! I got him to agree to an interview for this little blog!
