We're officially married! And so I am re-organizing my bio. I appreciate your patience while we're "under construction"!
My name is Hayley and I'm married to Bryan. We've been together since 2004, bought our first home together Summer 2008, got engaged February 2009, and we got married May 22, 2010!
Our Story: Bryan and I met at a mutual friend's birthday party in August 2003. We were just friends at first (for around 6 months) before we started going out. He proposed a little less than a week before our 5 year anniversary. He had tricked me into thinking we didn't have the money for the ring (we had already picked one out) since we had just bought our new home a few months before and I was really disappointed, even though I understood. Well, turns out he had it at his office for like 2 weeks! He came home one night with roses (and the ring although I didn't know it). While I was putting the roses into a vase, the lights to the whole building (and block!) went out! I started lighting candles and when I looked over, he was down on one knee with THE RING! He asked me to marry him and I'm not sure I even let him get the words out before I said yes, haha!
