two pictures from the day I met husband.

Friday, October 8

Photobucket
Yes, those are our University ID’s. Cause yes, we met on the first day of school. Kinda like how you meet your crush on the first day of kindergarten. Except meeting your crush on the first day of college is waaay better, cause you don’t get in trouble with your mom when you immediately feel the urge to stick your hand in your crush’s back pocket and go strutting around the playground. Which obviously, I felt the urge to do the first time I met Husband. His butt is sa-weeet. True story.

So here’s how it went down.

Girl is lost. Girl is trying to find her way through the big line of people waiting for their University ID’s so she isn’t late for work. Girl walks right past boy and doesn’t notice. Boy notices girl. Boy stops girl. Boy uses clever lines like, “Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?” Girl isn’t impressed. But girl notices boy is very cute. Suddenly girl forgets that she is still frantically searching for a way to get through the line of people and get to work on time. She also forgets boy’s name when he tells her. Girl forgets things easily when girl’s heart starts beating kind of fast. Boy tells girl that he was actually serious. Boy really does recognize girl. Turns out, boy served his mission near girl’s home. Turns out, boy met girl’s family one night when girl was at work. Turns out, boy saw a picture of girl in her house and somehow remembered it after all this time. Now girl’s heart is really beating fast. Boy asks for girl’s number. Girl gives it to him. Boy calls her that day. They go out. On the first date, girl gets green thing stuck in girl’s front teeth. Boy doesn’t tell her. Things are not going so well for girl. But regardless of embarrassing green things, boy decides he still likes girl. They go out again. And again. And again. Boy has still not kissed girl. Girl is getting kind of worried that boy thinks they are just friends. So girl calls her mom. Mom knows what to do. So girl puts on her black dress. The one that makes girl’s curves come out of hiding. They go out again. Boy kisses girl. Definitely girl’s best kiss ever. And boy hasn’t stopped kissing girl since.

Awwwww yeah!!!!

Best part: "Mom know what to do..." Hahaha your mom :)

How crazy that he'd seen your picture?!

PS - I am already obsessed with your blog, and I just found it three days ago (or was it two...?) ... I'm REALLY hoping you post on weekends because I will be seriously disappointed if you don't... but... I guess I'll have to wait and see ;)

JenLynn said...

Cute story of your first meeting. Definately one to repeat for many years to come.

Heather Marlene said...

I feel like I'm copying everyone else by telling you how much I love your blog. I found you because I'm friends with Sarah (we went to hair school together) and she blogged about you, so I just had to find you myself. What's even better, your in Boise and I have like oodels of family there... and My husband is from there... so anywho... cute story about how you met.

geri e. said...

can i tell you how much i love your mom?! black dress certainly did the trick.
good story. AND the BYU-I slogan at the bottom of the iCard is pretty perfect. if i do say so myself.

Brandilyn said...

OK, i hope you don't think i'm the biggest stalker in the world (because i swear i'm not)...but i'm like 98% sure you're in my world religions class. and i'm 100% sure your husband is in my american lit class...and i just randomly found your blog a few days ago while poking around the internet. i like your blog. small world. hello!

Alanah said...

I love hearing 'how-they-met' stories. Yours is great!

n.davis said...

awww, sydney. that is so cute. it just gave me chills that he met your family and saw your picture and remembered you...it was so meant to be. i love meant to be's.


i love this. a lot.

Shawntae said...

So so cute!! I love hearing the "how we met" story!



You and the hubs are the cutest.

Heather said...

Here I go commenting again! Cute story! I'm actually going to be doing a "he said/she said" how they met story on my blog because there are some things that don't match up! I love how your mom told you the LBD secret-momma knows how to work it!

Ana Paula@ Get Craftin said...

What a cute post! Loved it, it's always fun to hear little details about blogger's lives. Feels like we get to know you better! So fun!

Lisa said...

Obviously meant to be. What a great story to tell your children, especially remembering your picture.

Natalie | The Bobby Pin said...

Came to your blog from my friend sarah's and I love your story. We met in Provo too - but not at BYU. Love your story and your style. I'm set to go shopping tomorrow and this could be a bad thing!

Barbara said...

you just get cuter and cuter, dontcha?

p.s. you should remove "the end" from your story. seems like it doesn't have one, no?

Stephanie said...

how 'bout

"to be continued..."

instead? =) xo

Stephanie said...

or better--

(not really) the end.

=)

sisters4saymoreismore said...

oh my gosh... hilarious! love how your mom gave you the "killer dress" advice! my hubby and i met @ ricks(cause apparently now we are sort-of old school) we had so much fun there... almost missed eachother too (he was old, i was super young) ah, the good old days...
not only do i love looking at your blog i also love to read it!!!

Kassie and James Rew said...

So, I just found your blog today and I am reading and reading and reading.

That was the cutest story ever!

Annelie said...

I met my Husband on the internet, MSN chatroom called romance :-) Me in Sweden, Husband in London... I moved 4 months later and that was 10 years ago...

SJ. Wharton said...

Hi!

I've just found you fairly recently and have been reading your older entries for the past few days, getting a feel for your blog and your wardrobe and I'm diggin' it. Really.

When I read this I decided I should tell you that your storytelling skills are adorable. As is the story itself! Classy with a heavy dosage of spunk. You and your whole blog seem that way.

I look forward to the times when I launch Safari and I see a little blue star above your homepage's picture. :)

pancakeSTACKER said...

I just found your blog via bloglovin' and had to stop by and say hello! This is the cutest love story ever! Glad I found your blog :)

Elle said...

Adorable! I love this story time a bagillion. I also love finding people on the internet that are in the same town. So weird.

FirstComesLove.Then said...

This is way too incredibly cute and fun to read! You are so refreshing and a total natural blogger:) So nice to meet you.

I read your profile. My hubby also likes staying in and I like going out. It's funny. I'm a stay at home mama and he works. So I am home all week and he is gone all week. This equals disaster for our weekends. He wants to stay home and I am dying to go out!

I also read somewhere about your man shaving so you can actually make out. I so relate:)

Anonymous said...

Do you have any wedding pictures posted on your blog???

Reggie said...

I can't remember how I got to your blog, other than my friend Adrienne (Vintage Pencils) somehow linked to it. I have been hooked and reading backwards from Dec 3 ALL day!! You're funny and I LOVE your outfits, and you remind me a lot of myself. Which is why I'm posting a comment on this particular entry. I also met my husband on the first day of college. Well, it was my first day. It turned out he was only working there (we are 7 years apart). Ok, I've said my peace (think that's the right 'peace'). Thank you for writing such a fun blog that I am now addicted to. <3

This is wonderful. Just simply wonderful. The kind of story that makes me giggle as though it was really happening to me. From the ID line to the green teeth and then the killer black dress, I laughed and smiled and blushed a little. Keep kissing and being in love, because you two look perfect together, even in ID pictures that rarely turn out flattering. Bravo.

Sherry said...

My daughter turned me on to your blog when she was home from college this summer. I just love the way you chose to tell the story, as much as I love the story, of how you first met the love of your life. You are a wonderful, refreshing example of a young woman, for all women. I can only hope & pray she meets someone like Tys. She deserves to for sure!

Tine said...

Deidre Edmunds said...

Somehow in all my readings I missed this story. And I love it.

Sarah Marie Glaser said...

Your story about how you and your hubs met is adorable. Sometimes, when you know, you know. My husband and I hit it off right away, too. Great Hawaii pictures, we went there for our honeymoon but didn't bring a camera. You're inspiring me to start taking photos on something other than my iPhone.

I've been following your blog for a few months now and I love it! Keep up the good work, girl.
