How We Met...

I was cleaning out some of my drafts that I never finished. Here is a tag about how Kendall and I met.

1.Where did you meet? As wall flowers at a high school dance. Both of our dates kept wandering off (not together) and leaving us to hang out on the sidelines.

2.What was the first thought that went through your head when you met? I thought he was really tall and I liked his zebra pants. :)

3.Do you remember what he was wearing? Yup. Zebra pajama pants and a white t-shirt. It was the "Pajama Jam."

4.Where was the first time you kissed this person? On my front porch, December 8, 1999. It was after the most romantic date to Temple Square with all of our friends in the car trying to see us.

5.Where did you go for your first date? First I woke him up and took him to Denny's for breakfast, then later went to the mall for a picture scavenger hunt. That night we had a funny little spaghetti dinner at a friend's house and then we went to a dance at school. It was quite the day, but the best day of my life up to that point in it.

6.How long did you know this person before you became a couple? We had known OF each other for 8 months, but had been dating for almost 3 weeks.

7.How did he ask you out? Actually, I asked him out first. But then we asked each other out back and forth a lot. This question could take hours to answer. We were always creative in the ways.

8.Has this person ever proposed to you? Yes he did. On the 3 year anniversary of our first date (November 13th, 2002). He dressed up as my knight in shining armor. His white horse canceled because of the weather. He met me in "our" park. As he had been waiting for me he got a lot of funny looks for sitting by himself in a park dressed like a knight. He got down on one knee and proposed.

9.Do you and this person have kids together? Yes, Avrianna 4 years old, Talmage 2 1/2 and Mercedes almost 18 months!

10.Have you ever broken the law with this person? Does speeding count? I can't really think of anything else.

11.When was the first time you realized you liked this person? It would have been the night after our first date. I had a super crush!

12.Do you trust this person? Completely.

13.Do you see him as your partner in the future? For all eternity!

14.What is the best gift he gave you? He gave me the gift of being sealed to him for eternity and then he gave me the 3 most special little spirits for children that I have ever known. My family is everything to me.

15.What is the one thing he does that gets on your nerves? He tries really hard to not get on my nerves. I don't know, sometimes he leaves his wet towel on the floor?

16.Where do you see each other 15 years from now? Let's see Avri will be 19, Talmage 17 and Mercedes 16, so probably paying huge amounts of auto insurance and getting ready for college and missions and having fun with all of the active lives of teenagers. We will really love being able to go on dates without having to hire babysitters.

17.What causes the most arguments? We really only argue when I'm just being moody or ridiculous about something, so it is something dumb. We usually just discuss things, not really argue. Kendall's a very humble person. I need to be more like him.

18.How long have you been together? We have been together for 10 years in November, married for over 6 of those years!

19.Are you married? Yes, obviously.

20.Who do you tag? Everyone who reads this.I enjoy reading love stories.

I really like the knight in shining armor idea, how sweet. I wish I was proposed in such a romantic way. It sounds like he treats you like a princess! You have a beautiful family Melissa, I am so glad we are getting to know each other more through blogging. Weird isn't it?
