Fun Monday Here I Come!!!






So Janet told me to tell a story of a lovely lady who met a fellow...



Describe your meeting with your spouse/significant other. I especially want to hear "meet cute" stories. And it doesn't have to be your actual current sig/other. Perhaps the "meet cute" story is a former boy/girlfriend... or even a best friend. Illustrate with photos, of course.




So we met at a coffee shop I was working at in North MPLS...it is called Steamworks Coffee and Tea Company. And is case you are wondering, yes, they do have the best coffee I have ever had. My favorite is the Sumatra--buy some and try it if you can...tell 'em Kerith sent ya (it has been so long hopefully they remember me). But anyway...on to my story.


I started my day at 5:30 am so I saw everyone coming and going to work. I saw this tall guy in an army jacket always walk by about 6:10 and everyday I would go to the window to see him go to the bus stop. But then one day, a regular customer told him that the girl at the coffee shop always watched him every morning. And my hubby got the bright idea to come to the coffee shop and make me nervous and what not.

I couldn't help but stare at him when he did. And he pretented not to see but would secretly laugh at me cause I was such a dork. One time I was talking to him (he didn't have the army coat so i didn't know who it was) and when I realized who it was I ran into the back of the coffee shop and didn't come out...yes...for real...i am that much a dork. So we starting to talk and he asked me out...we went to the Mall Of America to watch a movie I picked out (American Psycho--not the best date movie) and we ate pizza at midnight, and the rest is history. There are so many more fun stories about us but that will have to be for a different post!


I am doing this fun monday in my personal blog because I figured that this was somewhat of a personal and family post...and here is what you have all been waiting for....

Sweet sweet photo. Dork? I don't think so....just being human. Hey, I think you met a nice looking guy. Nothing else can be wrong with this picture. He's cute.

But...wait at work at 5:30 AM? Are you joking me?

The running away in terror? That sounds just like me, with every guy I dated aside from Hubby. I'm glad he finally managed to get you to stop long enough to ask you out.

Robinella said...

Ahhh, so sweet a tale.

Blue Momma said...

Very sweet. And he obviously didn't mind you hiding from him at all! And if being shy makes you a dork, I guess we are all a little dorky!

Pamela said...

awww... does he stil have the jacket?

Isn't that funny how you got tongue tied and embarrassed when he approached you.

in the end, you look adorable together.

Karina said...

Love the photo and I love that you were so overwhelmed by him that you "dorked out". Too cute!

Sandy said...

What a very sweet story! So glad y'all got over your dorkdom!

Karmyn R said...

Sweet!

My husband and I saw the movie "Trainspotting" on our first date and it wasn't a good date movie either - but we both really liked it, so that was a good sign!

Dreaming What Ifs...

Beckie said...

I love it when you see something that you like and then you get it! Great Story!

Tiggerlane said...

Oh, yeah...I would be tongue-tied to behave properly, and would have to run and hide - he's a cutie! Congrats!

Joy T. said...

Personally? You're both darn cute in that picture! Great story. I say dorks rule!

ChrisB said...

You guys look so happy that is a really sweet story.

willowtree said...

Well, I'd have to say running away is pretty dorky.

Dawn said...

He makes you laugh, such a great trait, and he makes you a little dorky. Another great thing. A fun story. You did well being a dork.

Sirdar said...

Good thing he liked what he saw otherwise he would have run off when you ran off. Glad things worked out for the best!!

Kaytabug said...

Oh this was a cute sweet funny story!
Does he still have the jacket?
I don't think you are dorky!
Cute photo!

Jenni said...

You two make a very cute couple. Your hubby has very nice eyes, but I think his smile is just amazing.
