Valentine's Day Challenge: Favorite Date


I haven't participated in a blog challenge in a longgg time; but these are fun and it's an easy way to find new blogs. Amber from Brunch with Amber is hosting this one with a Neely and Casey.

Day 1: Favorite Date

Chris and I didn't date for very long. I guess when you know, you just know. Or when you get pregnant, you trap them. Tomato, tommaaattoo. :)

For the 4th of July {my favorite holiday}, we got tickets to the Cubs vs Cardinals game in St. Louis. Chris got us a room across from Union Station and we just ate and gallivanted around downtown all day.

Why I decided to dress like a Flinstone is beyond me...

We enjoyed the game and then headed out of the stadium to watch the fireworks over the arch.

Since we were sitting in a field, it never really felt like a proposal. In the middle of the fireworks, he started telling how much he loved me, how excited he was to have a baby, how glad he was that he moved to STL.... and then out popped the ring! :)

I would have been paying more attention if I knew what he was leading to; but I was thrilled nonetheless.

We got married three months after the proposal... had Haven four months after that.... And haven't slowed down since.
