The rest is history

Reading a post on SIStv had me thinking about Darren and I and how we met. Thought I would share our story here.......

I always heard about Darren (my husband) when I was in college- he had been roommates with my friend's boyfriend. Kevin (friend's Boyfriend) and Darren graduated a few years before us. Kevin always talked about Darren coming into town and we would have to put our plans on hold until Darren showed up- 9 out of 10 times he didn't show up. Being young and vocal I would complain about having to put MY plans on hold for some guy......

Fast Foward to Kim and Kevin's wedding- again we were waiting for Darren to show up (he was in the wedding) Kim was stressed out (as most bride's get) because Darren hadn't pick up his tux yet. By now, I am not that young but still very vocal so I say "What the hell? Darren needs a wife or a mother- someone to keep track of him" Kevin pipes in with "He said he wouldn't mind having you for one of those" I freak out "what are you talking about? why have you and Darren talked about me? Who is this freak?"

Darren shows up in the nick of time and the rehersal goes fine. We are at the rehersal dinner and I feel like someone is watching me, I make a comment or two to the girls and enjoy the evening. We (the bridal party) decided to go out after the rehersal dinner for some prewedding fun. We all went to some local bar- since I have had some adult beverages, I am feeling a little brave- so I walk up to Darren outside the bar and say "What is this I hear, we are supposed to be married this weekend?" I then add "I do think we would make beautiful children- do you want to practice?" Totally not serious, I walk about and enjoy some time with the girls (after getting Darren to buy me a drink or two). I end up at the bar chatting with Darren and there was one of those moments when I knew he was going to kiss me, I just felt like I was waiting forever, so I said "if you were thinking about kissing me, now would be a really good time." and of course he did....

Lately Darren has been asking me if I consider myself an Alpha Female, as I sit and read what I just typed, I guess the answer is pretty simple- Hell Yeah!!

What a cute story. You totally threw me for a loop with your "let's practice having kids!"
