I started spring semester guns blazin' and excited to finish up my freshman year of college. April, May, and June came and went without any fuss. I was focused on my studies without much interference of the drama of boys...*cough cough*...well nothing that was super serious anyways. Well one day I was watching a World Cup match with some girls from the apartment downstairs and then this guy that my girlfriends were good friends with came in. I had seen him at church and talked to him a few times, but he wasn't interested in being my friend and he was dating my neighbor. So anywho...I'm chatting in the kitchen with the girls and he walks in and says "Dang girl, those jeans look good on you!" and I'm thinking to myself, "Whoa, where is this coming from? But thanks!!!" After the jeans incident I kept running into him. I found out he wasn't dating my neighbor anymore and so I figured he wanted a re-bound chick. I was not about to be that so I kept my guard up a little more than usual.
July first was our first date. We went on a triple date with his two best friends and their dates. We went out to the lake, rode quads, went in the paddle boat, roasted mallows, and sat under the stars by the fire talking about our dreams, passions, and the life we hoped we would live.
Somehow it worked out so that I went to Texas to visit him and his family at the end of the summer. The first time I met his family his dad was welcoming me and accidently busted out with "Welcome to the family!" Instead of "Welcome to the home!" oh man, I was so embarrassed! This was in front of the WHOLE family! We had only been dating a month and he brought me home to the family, what a typical LDS couple!
Finally we got back to school and not even a month later he proposed.
Those three and a half months from September, when he proposed, to January, our wedding date, passed by SO SLOW. I couldn't wait to be married to Jordan! January 15th finally came and we were wed in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple in Utah.
