Chris and I met through a mutual friend, Casey. Chris had gone to high school with her and I met her after college through some friends. I had recently gotten my job at Shell in Anacortes and was talking about how I was nervous because I didn't know anyone down there. She said she knew someone that worked in the same refinery and she could introduce us. One night after I moved down to Mount Vernon, she picked me up from my house and took me to a local sports bar and grill. A few hours later Casey had to head home to Bellingham and Chris said he'd take me home.
In his Suzuki Samurai (it's not a Jeep!) we talked about hanging out again sometime, so I gave him my number and told him to call me. Well after a week of waiting for him to call, my lack of patience set in and I found him on Facebook and sent him an email. He got back to me and we set up our first date.
We walked into the restaurant and sat down. Not too much later I could see he started getting really nervous. Turns out most of his family just walked in. I was already super nervous that I not only had to impress Chris, but now I had to impress the whole family!!
Fast forward a couple of years and here we are, our big day is coming up!
