October 19, 2006. My profile pic was actually taken weeks after we met....at the "magical pub". Yes, the local Irish bar, but I always emphasize PUB..hehe. My girl friend at the time just moved to the neighborhood and one night we heard so much noise across the street from her apartment. We realized it was a bar! So we checked it out. The 2nd time I went there with my girl friend was when I met my FI. We were sitting at the bar when he walked in with his friend. He immediately noticed me and tried to talk to me but I am in my sweats with no makeup cuz who gets dolled up to go to a local bar??!!! So I didn't think much of it. My girl friend & I had only 60 bucks cash between us that night, but a few more friends met up with us. There were two bills and our bill ended up being over $60 bucks! When I went to close our tab, FI was sitting nearby. So I asked him if I can borrow $10 bucks & that I promise the next time I see him at the pub I would pay him back (hinting..that I'll see him again) Instead he offered to pay our whole tab in exchange for my phone number. So I agreed. His friend Cristian (who will also be his best man) said out loud.." man, you know she's gonna give you a fake number" So I said, "This is my real number. You can call me now if you don't believe me, but it's just a number, doesn't really mean anything more."
To make the long story short, our first date was horrible cuz I wore stilettos, which made me taller than him, and made him nervous !! But he was persistent and has such a great sense of humor that I had to give him a 2nd date! And the rest is history.
