I was interested, so I tried to reciprocate the next day at Ward Family Home Evening. We played a get to know you game and I threw the tennis ball to Scott. He seemed pleased.
A week later, Scott invited me to go to the devotional given by President Hinckley. I told him I'd love to, but I had some errands I had to run beforehand (translation: I had to get cute so I told him I'd meet him there). It was a lot of fun and I did look very cute.
Afterward, my mom picked us up and drove us to my car at her house. It was the first time he "met the fam." My mom said he had personality.
Our first real date was two days later - the Homecoming Spectacular. Good conversation, good people-watching, and a definite hope for a second date.
That Sunday I kissed him. I know, I know - but I had given him the cheek for a few days by then and I wasn't patient enough to give him the chance to try again.
Three weeks later Scott invited me to go to St. George for the weekend with his sister Rachel and her roommate. This was my first time "meeting the fam". Loved them.
On the way home, we sang Disney songs at the top of our lungs. The next day the "L" word was tossed around...less than a month after the first kiss...and the rest is history. Marriage talk a week later, engaged 6 weeks after that. We got married on August 22, 2008 and have loved every minute of it.
