our love story...

He totally robbed the cradle. Justin and I started dating the beginning of my senior year of high school. Don't worry he graduated when I was in the 7th grade. Ha. How did we meet? Well.. My parents were out of town on a cruise and my older sister and husband were left to take care of us. It was a Friday night and of course I stayed the night at a friends house. Her parents thought she was staying at my house... right. We ended up at a party. A party we shouldn't have been at. These parties were much more entertaining than the high school parties we were used to. I ended up going outside for something and some guy holding a beer, three sheets to the wind started talking to me. He wasn't bad looking. I had no idea who he was or how old? He proceeds to ask me out on a date? And the rest is history! Crazy. Who consents to going on a date with a drunk guy. Best decision of my life.
I graduated high school in May of 2005 and decided to spend the summer away trying to figure out life. I took a summer nanny job in Leondard Town Maryland. I tended to an 8 year old and IDENTICAL TWIN boys that were 5. So ironic.  
While in Maryland Justin and I decided we would marry when I got back to Utah. Crazy I know, I was only 18. I'll kill Bella if she even thinks about getting married before she's 25. The annual County Fair is a huge deal where I'm from. It means summer is drawing to an end. We go out every night and eat, listen to music at the band stand and watch the weirdo's that come out of the woodwork "dance." Cheap entertainment. We went to the rodeo that night. I had just got back from being a nanny in Maryland so my family and Justin's family was at the rodeo too. I just figured they all missed me. Justin left to go get us popcorn and drinks. As we are eating our popcorn about half way down into the bag I spot something black. It was a box, with a ring in it! It was perfection! And I said "YES!" I new a proposal was coming but I never imagined it would come at the rodeo at the County Fair. It was so sweet and so redneck.  That's why I love him so much, we are so different. He keeps me grounded and reminds me when I'm being a pain in the ass.
We were married November 12, 2005 at 4:00PM in the Logan LDS Temple (don't worry we got our shit together.) We had a huge dinner and celebration with the ones we loved most. I didn't want a traditional white dress. I fell in love with an off white dress on Ebay and only paid $50 for it. Seriously.
We bought our first home together and were able to completely renovate it and move in the day after we were married. And yes, I was legal. 
Love you babe! I'm so happy I get to spend eternity with you in BFE, also known as the lone and dreary world.
