- Wedding: May 2011
As I’ve mentioned in other posts, the closer our day gets here, the more sappy I get, and I just wanted to share a few key moments with the hive that led us to the road we’re on, which is 32 days away from wedded bliss:)
One of our first official dates together, at my favorite sushi place in NOLA. Sake margaritas! The first clue that FI had that I am, um, high-maintenance, as I was almost an hour late that night….
FI is an identical twin, and this was my first time to meet his “other half.” It was a few weeks into dating, and we all really hit it off, which I later found out was a major thumbs up for FI….We call this photo (or they do, really) “A rose between 2 thorns…”
P.S. It was “jersey night” as Fi and his guys love theme nights
2 weeks into things, FI took me to this super-nice restaurant in Nola, where we lived at the time, called Dick and Jennys. When we left the building, he actually gave me a whole speech outside the door, on the corner, in front of his pickup truck, about how he felt for me, and how he loved how easy it was to laugh with me, and – almost like he was proposing to me- he asked me to be his and his alone. Would I be his GF?
TThis is my fave pic of all time! It’s my first birthday with FI…I turned 28, and he totally secured my heart that night with all of his sweet words and shenanigans! This was at Tommy’s Cuisine in the warehouse district of New orleans, and if you ever get an opportunity to go there, you won’t regret it! (Above)
This is the night that FI professed his love for me…I’m LSU alum, and that’s actually my hat he is wearing in the pic…About 3.5 weeks into things….When we left Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar, where we are in this photo, he took a photo of me. When he pulled the pic up on the camera to see his work, he pointed at my photo and said – “You see that girl? I’m in love with that girl…I absolutely love her.”
So there you go.
And this is us now!!! I can’t wait for May 29th to marry the love of my life and the hottest man I’ve ever met!!
