UPDATED: Oct. 28 2010 - Epcot, LSS, DP. YAY!!! I can finally start my planning journal because as of yesterday, I'm officially engaged!!!! I say officially because for a while we've known we'd be getting married, specifically at Disney World, and have even picked the date: October 27th 2011.
Yes, it's very far away. But it's never too late to start planning right? I'm tempted to push it up but we picked 2011 for a few reasons. First of all, we're teachers. He's biology, and I'm biology and chemistry (and yes we are HUGE science nerds) and we just started this year. We figured by 2011, we'd have tenure and could take off for the wedding without a problem. But then we were hired for non-tenure track positions this year. So we won't have tenure by then, however we're science teachers so I doubt we'll face any severe repercussions for taking off time for our wedding. Second reason was that we both still live at home, and probably won't be able to move out until next summer (2010) and that would give us a year of living together and facing with all those stresses prior to the wedding. Not that I doubt we'll manage living together, I just figured it would be a good trial run. Plus it gives my parents time to save up for the wedding (they are traditionalists like that ) So 2011 it is...for now
Anywhoo...About Us: I'm 24, and he's almost 25 (next week). As I said we're both teachers, giant dorks, and huge geeks. We love science, star wars, and each other hehe
How We Met:It all begins at Old Navy. He had been working there for a while, and I worked there during the summer 2004. He was not single, and I had just returned from a very traumatic first year of college (I even transferred to a new school afterward), so neither of us were available. I thought he was cute, but he was taken so I stayed away. I left when school started and only saw him again when I went to his Halloween party. I still barely even talked to him. Then a few years went by. I dealt with my issues, and he broke up with that girl. When I had worked there, I was friendly with one of his friends: Sheelagh, but we didn't stay in touch. (Now it gets confusing) My friend Rachel had worked at Old Navy too (which I didn't even realize) and she befriended Mike and Sheelagh as well. One day Sheelagh saw a picture of Rachel and me, and she recognized me. So Rachel invited me to hang out with Sheelagh and Mike. I immediately asked about Mike (I've always been a girl with boys on the brain) and Rachel thought he was dating someone. I was a little disappointed but I went anyway. Turns out, he was on the way out of a rocky, not so serious relationship, and we hit it off immediately...I also "encouraged" him to exit that relationship since it was sounded like a crap relationship and he deserved better...someone like me
It was very obvious that there was something there.
After they broke up (due to reasons unrelated to me) we started talking...well more like texting. We hung out a few more times in a large group, but nothing was really happening. We actually had our movie moment ruined. We had hung out all night, but the new friend he brought there, said he liked me, so Mike, being the gentleman he is, would not make a move. Finally when he walked out with his friend, he was given the OK, and he was planning on rushing back in, and sweeping me off my feet with a big ole kiss. His plans were crushed, when he came to the door and found me in the arms of our friend Jorge. Only he didn't realize, Jorge was consoling me because I was all upset Mike didn't make a move so he was giving me a hug. So no movie moment. He finally got up the nerves to ask me out and we went to TGIFridays, haha. And our first kiss came after a long conversion in the parking lot, haha. I was really nervous to become "official" because I knew Mike was the kind of guy you marry, and I had never been in a real relationship. My analogy: I had been starving for a long time, and along comes Mike, a big juicy steak, and I was nervous that it would be too much for my stomach to handle. But after the encouragement of my brother telling me, if I want steak, then I should eat the steak Idiot! So when he asked, I said yes, and we've been inseparable ever since. It's been 33 months (as of yesterday, hehe)
