A Memory to Relive

Tuesday, September 17: A memory you would love to relive.

I think I would like to relive the day that I met Grant for the first time.  I had just moved to New Zealand and the family I was nannying for took me to an All Blacks game.  It was such a fun experience to get to see a rugby game for the first time and live at that! After the game we went to a local bar where I was encouraged to go meet young people.  I remember watching the band and some people dancing.  One tall good looking guy was dancing and there was a girl near him, little did he know when he turned around all her friends pulled her off the stage and there he was dancing all by himself! It was soo funny, but he didn't seem to care he just kept going hahhaha. I remember telling Peter wow that guy has some courage just to dance by himself !  Later in the evening I was talking to a group of people and trying to make friends, which is harder than you think.  I kept looking at the tall guy giving him the eye.  You know the eye... where you try to make eye contact then look away then look back.  Well eventually it worked and he came over and started talking to me and he got my number.  I truly didn't think I would hear from him, but unlike American guys he actually text me the next day asking how I was and what I was up to.  He ended up asking me out, and boy was I shocked!  A few days later he came and picked me up and we went to a close bar for a few drinks just to talk and hang out.  It wasn't a date per se but more of a get to know eachother since that first night when we met I doubt either of us could really remember much.

The first meeting went great and he asked me if I wanted to go out the next night to a party that one of his friends was throwing and of course my answer was YES!  I really liked him right away, but to be honest I knew no one so I probably would have said yes no matter what just to meet people.  From that point on we started slowly dating and haning out more and more and fast forward 5 years we are now married and expecting our first baby! A BOY!
(This pic isn't from when we first met but its a good one of us)
