13 years? Dang I'm old!!!

13 years ago today, Randy and I went on our first date!!! I was working with his cousin, Wendy at Canyonland Gifts when she introduced him (well, he introduced himself... if you know Randy, you know what I mean). I had been in a long relationship, so I was nervous that I would call him the wrong name. I had RANDY written on my hand that whole week. Anyhow, date night came. I was so excited, it had been almost 4 years since I had been on a first date!!! He picked me up in his dad's yellow car cuz he had just wrecked his truck (sleeping and driving=not a good combo) and off we went. We started out at Paula's for dinner... long line, went to Pizza Factory... long line, ended up at Taco Bell!!! I know you're laughing, so were we. It was fun to flirt again. After that we went to a stupid movie, Bio Dome. Not that I cared much about the movie. I was with a cute boy!!! After the movie we ended up at my friend, Jamie's house. We were having a Canyonland Sleepover. I wonder if it had anything to do with wanting the dish on our date. Everyone that I worked with knew Randy. Up until this night, I only knew him as "Wendy's cousin". Any time that I had to find Wendy for any reason, he was with her. He was so sarcastic (and still is) and I loved that!!! So that's where our first date ended, in front of Jamie's house, in the yellow car, maybe a little making out and that's all I'm gonna say about that. When I went in, all the girls wanted all the juicy details on the date!!! It was fun. I remember feeling things that I didn't know was possible. My family was freaked out that he was the "rebound" from my other relationship, but look how things have turned out!!! I can't imagine how more perfect 2 people are for each other than Randy and I. So it's been a long time since that night when I was 19 and our lives have changed so much, but I'm so glad that Randy took that first step and asked me out. I'm sure it wasn't easy, it never is, but hopefully it paid off for him!!! So, happy first date anniversary to us!!! I think we'll put the kids to bed early tonight!!!

Thanks for posting that. I really love to hear those stories. It's so exciting to remember those Anniversaries. Even more fun than wedding anniversaries because the excited, nervous, and flirty feelings come back so strong. Good choice in your man, wo-man.

Sweet! I remember Steve's and I first date, he fell for me(literally). Keep up that feeling. You and Randy are a great couple. I couldn't imagine you with your other boyfriend.

Yellow CAr, Taco Bell, Bio Dome, truly this is the description of the perfect first date! I love it. It reminds me that it isn't what you do, but who you are with. And this really makes for a fun first date story to share through the years. So glad you stopped reading to post this. Take care! :)
