Lil bit of our history

2 years ago today Christopher and I went on our very first official date. It was the Monday after Easter and I had the day off, and I begged Chris to take the day off as well. We had only met 5 days earlier, and spent the entire weekend together. All of my roommates were out of town for Easter, and I was sad that I'd be all alone for the weekend. Luckily I met Chris Thursday after work on the metro. That night I said goodbye to the guy I was dating for he was on his way to NY, not knowing i'd spend the entire weekend with Chris.

Friday night came and I walked to the grocery to pick up a tub of ice cream and sprinkles, and I expected to eat and watch Pretty Woman that night. Chris calls me and I told him I was alone and about to eat a ton of calories, what a perfect opportunity for him to come over. Poor Chris. I had no idea how he found my apartment but after 1 1/2 hours of searching he finally did. I am just horrible with directions! We spent the entire night talking and laughing, and then he left around 5am. I had a rafting date I was suppose to go on at 8am but that didn't happen. After such a great night I didn't expect to hear from him for a few days. That afternoon he called me and I invited him over to watch a movie at this guys house who had the biggest crush on me, and even made me cupcakes while we were there. Man was there some jealousy things going on that night. It was awesome!

After the movie Chris came back over to my apartment and stayed again until 8am. We both fell asleep on my roommates couch for about an hour, and woke up Easter morning to birds singing outside. It is one of those memories I will never forget. I knew at that moment that I didn't want to date anyone else, and that I always wanted to be with Chris.

We were inseparable ever since. We spent every night together until 4 or 5 in the morning, and the only time we weren't together is when Chris left 4 days early to go to the Bahamas. I thought it was the end of the world, but seeing him when I arrived in the Bahamas was the happiest I have ever felt. The rest is history. We were engaged a month later, and married 3 months later.

Chris truly is my one and only, and I am so grateful for all that he does for me. He really is the perfect husband. He always cleans, does dishes, laundry, and tries to make things easier for me. He does all of this without me even asking him. Chris is always willing to help out when his family or I am in need, and he loves to look out for the little guys. He is going to make a fantastic dad, and I am blessed everyday to have him in my life. I have no idea what I would do now without him.

What a special day for us not only 2 years ago but today as well. Today we get to hear our baby's heartbeat for the first time. I find it ironic that our appointment fell on the day of our first date. We are very excited and anxious! We can't wait to be parents.
