Blogapalooza #10 How did me and my husband meet?

This is an excellent choice!
Thanks @fromtracie for suggesting this topic. I have yet to relay this story to you.
My husband. How I met him.

Cedar UT, 1996 Fall of that year

I remember seeing him in church first and then on campus at Southern Utah University. In all actuality, I didn't really like him at first. I liked some other guy. But that guy turned out later to like my roommate. *sigh*
My roommate at the time is my present sister-in-law. Cool huh? She married my husband's brother!
 Anylovestory,  my roommate and I were talking one day. And she revealed that she was thinking about asking my husband, (Well we weren't married yet. LOL) on a date. Well, I said, I better see if there are any flames with this guy before MY roommate falls in love with yet another man I like...

  Dan got me a job at the Care Center where he worked at the time. He worked in the kitchen preparing the food and I was the dishwasher. I know, not a glamorous job, not in the least, but I remember many nights when I missed working beside Dan. I longed to talk with him and to flirt with him. He really was adorable once you got to know him. (He still is, BTW.)
Anyway, Dan and I got to know each other through work and dates. I asked him to a college dance, he said yes, the rest is history...LOL. Ok, we hung out a lot more after that. And you know what? Dan said later that he probably would NOT have dated my roommate. She just wasn't his type. *sigh* That made me feel a LOT better. (Because the guy before Dan, that I was in love with, totally liked this roommate.)

My sister-in-law and I are good friends now. Just like we were back then. My husband's brother, the one she married, is perfect for her. Which is perfect, because my brother-in-law is so not my type. He's a good guy and all, wonderful cook, but Dan is the man for me! (Ha, Ha I threw in a little rhyme at the end.)

So Tracie, that's how my husband and I met.
Work, school and church. The rest is history. I am still waiting on my second  honeymoon though.
Because that would be perfect! :)

Love this story. Love that you asked him out too....very cool!

How great is it that your friend and roomate gets to be your sister-in-law too? That is so randomly awesome!

Sounds like Dan is such a better guy than that other guy. =)

Y'all deserve a second honeymoon....I'm still waiting on my first one. Three wedding, and no honeymoon. There is something majorly wrong with that. lol
