Our Story Part Two

When we last left our heroine she had just received a mysterious phone call...


Well I answered the phone and it was not my friend, but it was Pop Rocks. He informed me that he went to purchase a ticket and was told that I had not purchased one. So he bought both of them. I promised to pay him back and he told me not to worry about it.


I began to wonder if this was more than "just friends."


I went to spend the weekend with my Grandmother. While I was there we went to the mall. I decided to look for a dress for the Jr/Sr and so we looked. I did indeed find a dress, but my Grandmother loved to tell how I was so excited, but adament that we were just friends. She could tell that it wasn't. She was such a smart lady!


When I got back to campus I went about my usual business and was coming out of a club meeting on Tuesday when my phone rang again. This time it was Pop Rocks, with whom I had exchanged numbers after a second phone call from a friends phone. He wanted to know if I wanted to get together and hang out that weekend. I agreed and we decided to go a movie. He called me back later in the week and added dinner. I wasn't totally sure that it was a date. I decided to wear khakis and a new top, but decided at the last minute to change into jeans. Right as I turned to change, he knocked on the door, wearing jeans of course.


The next weekend was Junior Senior and we had a wonderful time.



After that we pretty much hung out all the time! It was great. I love that we became such good friends before we dated. I also love that we found each other at church.

Our relationship came easy after that and four months later we were engaged. It felt like we had been together our entire lives.
Another random thing that I love about our relationship: I made a committment on that first date to be only myself. I figured I didn't really have anything yet to lose be being someone I'm not, so I just acted like myself. He did too and I think thats why our relationship was so wonderful, we were comfortable with ourselves in the relationship so we were comfortable together.

  1. I really like what you said about just being yourself from the beginning. That's good advice!

  2. I'm here from Modern Mrs. Darcy and I just wanted to say that your tale made me smile and gave me hope because I'm entering my senior year of college next week! I always think that meeting my husband is some abstract event largely in the future, but your post reminded me that it can happen at any moment!

  3. Emily! I am so glad that I can give you hope! I used to wonder if I had met my husband already and for most of my life (and most of college) I hadn't! Enjoy it though! I wish that I had spent more time hanging out with my girlfriends and soaking up life before marriage. Its always hard to remember to enjoy the stage of life we are in, instead of anticipating the next stage!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
