Show us your life....How you met your Husband?
HOW I MET MY SOON TO BE HUSBAND?
Let's see I was a young first year teacher back in 2005. I had just begun my first teaching job with well...no teaching background. There were these two very nice men in suits at our school one day. My friend Hoover and I (both 1st year teachers) just happened into the lounge where the men were. Those men....Financial Advisors! Wait wait wait...my sister and brother in law had been wanting me to set up some retirement.
Here was my chance. Both Hoover and I sat down and listened to what Chris had to say about saving money and 403B's (that is teacher retirement). Chris was very good at his job...aka he made ME a non-money person understand all that "money talk", making him WONDERFUL at his job. Both Hoover and I set up our accounts and that was that. From there Chris would come and go at our school, always looking so dang handsome in his suit. I would see him and try to have a reason to meet with him. About 2 years come an go with our little run ins....and finally I wanted to know more.
I find out that one of the teachers at my school acutaly lives down the street from him!!! WHAT!!! I begin working with them to see how they can randomly hook me up with him. Roberts, one of our K teachers, begins meeting with Chris a lot more. Each time she is talking about me more and more!!! (She is the best) Then it just so happens my room is next door to hers...hummm Finally my assistant principal has heard enough! She needs to work out a 403B issue and calls Chris in to do it. While she has him she too talks about me and tries to feel out if he is taken or not. Luckily that Friday!!! My assistant principal, Rowe,and Wilson all headed out for some after school socializing....
It was then that I began to receive many phone calls...Rowe was all like you have to get here, Chris is here!!! Come now. I thought about it and in seconds was dressed and out the door. I made Rowe meet me at the door so I wouldn't look too stupid (It was my first time at this place). She was so sweet and did. Then my ast. principal headed over to Chris' table and began chatting it up....little did I know that she brought him back to our table. She pretty much forced him to sit by my! HA and well from there Chris and I began to chat...little by little people began to leave our table, in the end leaving us ALONE. We talked for a couple of hours and even made plans to meet up again.
Although I have know Chris from 2005, and trusted him with my retirement...it was not until March of 2008 that we really began to know each other. I would have never been where I am now if it were not for my AMAZING FRIENDS!!! I love them so much, and soon in 64 days I will be a Mrs....
