 "Oh Those High School Dances Blog Hop"
Here are the rules:
1. Post pictures of your high school dances. (Make sure you tell us which one is you if they're group pictures.)
2. Share with us your high school dance story.
3. That's it!



 April 18, 1988...our 1st son was born April 18, 1994
Who would've guessed?
My husband


Whenever my husband and I part...I always say... Love you

Then he'll say...Love you more

I'll say...Love you most

He'll say...Loved you first

And I melt.

My husband is a hottie. He's adorable and charming.

He is and always was better than any hero I could ever dream up.

And that caused a problem.

I always prided myself on being smart...and anything, or anyone, that seemed too good to be true...well, had to be fake.

And this perfect guy? I pegged him as a wolf in a sheep's disguise. I looked for him to screw up; to show his true colors, then I'd show him the door.

Then one night we were out on a date and he admitted things between us were strained; that he figured the problem was he was way farther ahead emotionally than I was. That he knew from the moment he saw me in the red prom dress that he was in trouble. That he would do whatever it took to  make me...his we.

Busted. My heart dropped. Evidently the stud took one too many hits to the head on the football field. Two months past and he already forgot that I wore black?!

I pointed this fact out and he quickly explained...I know. You wore red last year, but you weren't with me.

Yeah, he's that good. And he's mine.

    1. Such fun Emily, how could I not?

      LOL...I tease him all the time that it was just a clever save!

  6. Nice save! My hubs always just snags an 'I love you' on the end of things to dig himself out. It's losing it's potency now.

    And I love this picture! He's totally got that look on his face (with the position of his hand too) like, I'm gonna go for that boob and see if she hits me. haha!

    1. Look for the guy who stutters when he tries to talk to you. The more nervous you make him, the deeper you are in his head. They all have potential.

  15. Oh, that's so sweet. I'm surprised about the amount of ladies still married to their prom dates. That's so cool.

    And do they still do the tie-around-the-neck thing?

  23. Any man who remembers what you wore the year before is worth keeping... or a stalker... but in your case, worth keeping!

    1. LOL...good thing I was still young and wearing my rose colored glasses!

  24. Aww! That's so sweet. It's great to hear stories like this about spouses, because all you hear sometimes is about the divorce rate in this country, and no one ever hears the other side, about how lifetime love does exist. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thanks. I framed it instead of the 'official' photo...I do fake smiles like Chandler Bing.

  26. Sooo cute! I'm surprised at how many people in this bloghop knew their husbands in high school....I just graduated last year, and I'm absolutely positive I didn't meet my future husband at West High!

    1. If you had asked me three years before that prom if I would ever marry, or even date Chad Seckman...it would have been a hearty hell no...guess you never know!
