Tidbit Tuesdays: Husband

So, husband saw the post I made of our puppy, Harley, and got jealous that he did not yet have a post of his own! So here it is!!!

Husband and I have been together for 9 years and have been married for almost 6 years!
I remember the first time I saw him......

We were at a family friend's house and it was Easter!
I had already eaten before I got there and was sitting at the coffee table doing a puzzle.
This rather handsome 'kid' had walked in and he had these incredible sideburns that came down and followed his jawline to his cute little goatee!
I was in love!!
Okay, I just really liked him and thought that he was like, the most good looking guy I had ever seen!

I went back the following Sunday {they had BBQ's once a week back then} and he happened to be there! I remember that I was wearing a bright blue, long sleeved shirt {just had to throw that in! Details, people!}.
We were all sitting in the living room after eating and watching shows together. He sat on a reclining chair and I sat next to it {no more couch space, duh!} and had my arm up on the footrest that he was using! Hehe! Anythingto get close to the cute guy, right!
Well, I kept glancing over at his sister and my brothers then girlfriend {long story} and they kept winking at me and mouthing the words "he's cute, huh!" I kept telling them to stop for fear that he might see!
Apparently they were doing the same thing to him when I wasn't looking!
The following day, I called my bro's then girlfriend and asked her about the 'Matt kid'.
She screamed "he's going to ask you out!!!".
I was totally shocked! I completely thought that he was just way too cool and cute for me!
10 minutes later, he called me!
Our conversation when like this:
Him: Hey, this is Matt .... from last night..... do you remember me?
Me: Matt......{sounding very puzzled} from last night?......Um.....No, I don't.
Him: Oh.....Uhhh........
Me: Just kidding! Of course I remember you, it was only yesterday!

hahaha I know, it was pretty mean of me to do that! He still doesn't think it's funny...to this day ;)
We actually ended up going out that night!
He came and picked me up in his sisters Xterra {he had a junky car and wanted to impress!}
We went to dinner at a place called Giovannis {which is no longer in business here in Utah. Sad!}
We talked the entire time! I was pretty shocked about that! We found out a lot about each other and genuinely had a great time together! I think that one of the best things that he learned about me that night was that I didn't expect him to be 'too gentleman-ly'. I didn't expect him to open the car door for me or anything like that. I think he started to like me even more then! haha

After that, we actually went to his sister and brother-in-laws apartment because his sister wanted to get to know me more. He lived with them at the time and I was super excited about it because I thought his sister was just the most beautiful person {she still is!}. After hanging out there for about an hour, we all decided to go to the movies.
On the way to the theater, the song "Build me up Buttercup" came on.
He started singing it.
He knew every word.
Sang every fluctuation.
And completely sang on key.
I was impressed!
Then came the part that goes "I need you...more than anything baby..." he looked right at me!
Now, if you are anything like me, I think that every song is about me and the situation I am in at that moment.
So naturally, he was singing to me and that meant that he liked me...a LOT!
I was in heaven!

So we watched our movie, The Rookie, and then he drove me home.
We had already talked about the awkward 'kiss' so that we wouldn't have to worry about it {and sorry, I don't remember the details of the conversation, I'm sure he would} so we didn't have a good night kiss that night.
It was such an awesome date!
The best I'd ever been on {Okay, the best out of.....4!!}

He called me the next day....
and the next.....
and the rest is history!

{and by the way, I kissed him, finally, on day 5!}

Love your face, husband!!!
