Six Years Ago.

So, as I was laying in bed last night trying to fall asleep after Justin and I stayed up to watch Transformers WHICH IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER and I had a mild heart attack when I saw Optimus Prime and was too wired to calm down, I realized that this is the week Justin and I started dating six years ago.


You know the sotry, that my mom and I came down to Utah. We were staying at Homestead Resort in Midway (which is goooorgeous by the way) and Justin had been coming up periodically to "hang out". It was in that awkward something-bubbling-under-the-surface stage, and we didn't know where it was going yet, so we did alot of hanging out.

Now, this also can be considered a little ode to Wally, our friend who's name isn't really Wally, but we've been calling him Wally for so long that it's stuck. Wally served with Justin in Toronto and they have been good friends ever since. Wally came up to the Homestead for an afternoon to go swimming with Justin and me. We spent all afternoon at the pool, messing around and being lazy. At one point, Wally disappeared into the weight room, which I can only assume was an attempt to make Justin and I spend some "quality" time together. When he came back out, we decided to head back to the room. Justin and I were walking awkwardly along, when Wally announced "So, did I witness a first kiss back there?" He had not. I. Was. Mortified. I am about the quarter of the size of Wally, but I was pretty sure I was going to kill him. The awkward factor rose exponentially. Justin and I drove Wally home.

But I guess it was the kick needed for Justin to make a move. We went on our first "real" date (he actually asked my mom what time she wanted me home.) And six years later, here we are. I knew he was the one for me when I didn't bother to wear make up the WHOLE time I was down here. It baffles me that I have spent six years with ONE person and not gotten totally sick of him.

Here are some pics of our first week together. We look so young!!!
