My future husband



Yesterday we celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. What an adventure the past 9 years have been. Oh the drama and excitement of dating, and the happiness and comfort of being married.

Back in our college days I let S. and his roommate, Mark, borrow my computer. My roommate had one, and being the nice friend/girlfriend (we dated on and off so I have no idea if I was actually dating S. when I let him borrow it) that I was I gave it to them. Man, it was old school. Anyway, I didn't think to remove any of my past assignments, but soon I realized my mistake and was as mortified as a girl who doesn't get embarrassed could be.

One day on campus S. and I were walking and out of the blue he started dropping some sentences that sounded oddly familiar. He proceeded to pull out a piece of paper that had my name written at the top with the heading for my Marriage Prep class with an assignment entitled "My Future Husband." He and Mark had found the document on my computer, printed it out and actually checked off the characteristics S. possessed. I was NOT the type of girl to make a list like this on my own and how embarrassing that the man of my dreams had found it. It was purely for my class assignment. Why had I NOT ERASED IT?!!??!?!?

Well, I am happy to say that he still gets checks by all of those requirements (always has in my mind, actually. He just thought he fell short of a couple, but who isn't poor in college, anyway?). Actually, he has fulfilled all those hopes more than I could have ever dreamed. He is my real-life Prince Charming.

Here's to eternity, Funnyman. I love you.

It has been a wonderful time. My list was a lot shorter: Smart, hot, and funny. You got all three.

Congrats! Do you know that this is the first picture from your wedding that I've ever seen, since I was in the MTC on the big day. You guys haven't changed a bit. Scary that I was in the MTC 7 years ago though.

Hey! what a great picture! ;) Although you guys are very easy to photograph! I had forgotten all about those pics. I should come over and take a look at them. That is such a FUNNY story! Go Sam! Way to be bold! I'm with you though! If that had happened to me, I would have been mortified.

Great story...I can totally see Sam and Mark pulling that one...have you ever seen the pictures from when they had my camera (can't remember if I left in one of their rooms or they stole it...If Sam doens't have copies...I need to get them to you, they are HILARIOUS!)? Happy Anniversary! Glad you guys had a fun weekend...do you go next weekend to the Happiest place on earth?

Loved hearing that one. I told G. and he thought it was great too! Congrats on 7 years! They always say if you can get past the 7 year itch, then you're doing well. :)

Just thought that I would say that I HAD to take the marriage prep class for my major. It was not by choice. In March '98 I was only 20 and not looking to get married.

That is so funny -- and embarrasing!! That's something Wayne would do to me too. Too funny! Happy Anniversary!

Hi guys! It has been so fun looking through your blog (and your yummy recipe blog!) The Rundalls just moved here and they knew you at UVA so I wondered what you guys were up to! What a BEAUTIFUL family! Happy Belated Anniversary! Keep in touch!
