Love Story

Suzie asked about how Dr. Hubby and I met...here's our love story...

My grandparents attended church with Dr. Hubby's family. One day Dr. Hubby and his dad came to my dad's junkyard to find a part for their car. They stopped by my grandparent's home for a visit. Dr. Hubby saw my senior picture sitting on a table and asked about me. He wanted to meet me and my grandparents said they would bring me to church with them.

I was not real excited to go because I always thought that people who attended his school were big hicks...most of them were. My grandparents were very excited about me meeting him and I hated to disappoint them...so I went. It was Dec. 23, 1992.

In church I caught a glimpse of him sitting in the back with other teens. He had on a black motorcycle-type leather jacket. Cute. Blond hair...little mustache...

He came up to talk to us...I pretended to be really interested in a book Lil Sis had brought with her while he chatted with my mama. My heart was beating SO fast...he finally leaned over and spoke to me. I think I gave him a couple one word answers and then he went to the pew in front of us to sit with his parents. This is when I got to check out his back side...he had none...heehee!

At the end of church he asked me for my # and said he would call me. He called on Dec. 26th. We went on our first date on Dec. 29th. We ate at Fiesta Bravo...watched "The BodyGuard"...bought matching friendship bead necklaces...then we bought cassette singles (remember those?)...I bought "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston...he bought "Highway to Hell" by ACDC...hmmmm!

On Jan 1st he kissed me for the first time...On Jan. 3rd he asked me to go "steady" and gave me his class ring.


We had these photos made in February 1993. My hair is red because I tried some "sun-in."


On March 14th Dr. Hubby went on a field trip with my school to the Cinncinnatti zoo. We were sitting on a bench in front of the pond and he asked me to marry him. I said yes. I loved planning my wedding. He did break up with me once in the parking lot at the mall...then by the time I got home he called and apologized. We attended our senior proms together.

In November he gave me my engagement ring (after asking my dad and me again). These were our engagement photos. We got married July 8, 1994. Our wedding colors were red and purple and we honeymooned in Tennessee.

My parents gave us a house for our wedding present. Our first "big" purchase as a married couple was a mini schnauzer named Daustin Anastas Rochester (Rocky). This was our photo of our first Christmas together.
We will have been married for 15 years on July 8th, 2009. It's still a wild ride...

OH.MY.GOODNESS. I can't believe how much Manga Dork resembles the younger Scrappy Girl!!

These photos are just too cute and your story is beautiful! You had you some big ol' 90's hair!! ;) I LOVE IT!!!!! I just know it will come back in style one of these days and I'll be so excited when it does...mine wasn't long enough in those days and I was SOOO jealous of the girls with hair that beautiful. LOL

I love love stories. How cute that you were all interested in your sister's book. Rocky is so cute.

A House? You got a house for a wedding gift? That is a nice gift. m

Thanks for sharing your love story. You two are such a cute couple. Thanks for sharing all of those cute pictures too! It was a fun trip down memory lane. I'd say you are one lucky girl.

The music choices cracked me up. It's so nice to hear love stories and know that they exist.

I have to say what Mechelle said - "A house for a wedding gift?" WOW!!
