As many of you already know, because David and I both like telling "our story" over and over and over (ha!), we met at the House of Blues in downtown Houston over two years ago. He took his mom out that night to show her a good time. They didn't have plans to do anything; it was "spur of the moment." David actually had to convince Mary to get in the "go out" mode. My great friend, Kimberly, and I were looking to have a girl's night out and indulge in good food, drink, music, and conversation. We didn't plan on doing anything until after work that Friday so it was a "spur of two minutes," ha! I remembered hearing good things about the House of Blues so off we went to have us a good ole' time!!
Kimberly and I purchased balcony seats on-line right before we left. We chose to get seats because we didn't know if we would get trampled on in a "mosh pit," both of us are 5'2" short. Time to Google "mosh pit" dad! :) David asked for general admission/standing room tickets and Mary made him change it to balcony seats because MOMMA AIN'T NO FOOL.
We were already seated when David and Mary (I thought she was his date for a few seconds) come struttin' down the aisle like they own the place. J/K I thought I was going to be super, alcohol tolerant that night-you know, because I NEVER am (made sense to me). Since I was NOT tolerant, the first thing that I said to both David and his sweet, loving, understanding, forgiving, mother-of-the-lifetime was "want a shot." If anyone needs any "cool" pointers you know who to call now.
So, we met each other and hung out for awhile. I asked David's age and pretty much took off to the mosh pit. He coincidentally ended up right next to me downstairs giving me "googlee" eyes. I didn't catch on to his interest level immediately but when I did I had to give him a BIG SMOOCH at the end of the night. :)
David contacted me a few times to ask me out but I just wasn't sure about the next "date step"Вќ so it took a few weeks for me to get over myself. I don't think we knew each other's name for a good two weeks afterward. David had Katie call me so she could get my name. He IS so clever!! When he called, I said "who?" ha! J/K And the rest is history.
David and I have such a loving and strong relationship and Colin is right in the middle of all that affection and stability. We didn't know it could be this good. God is who we look to for guidance and with every passing day our faith becomes stronger and stronger. In turn, we work toward becoming the best versions of ourselves and learn that there is peace, love and joy today, tomorrow, and on the other side. That is His promise to us and YOU. Through life's adventure we learn and grow. We truly are so happy to be taking this journey together with Colin and our future child(ren). Thanks for being apart of this road trip!!
