7 months from today I am marrying my best friend,
And I couldn't be happier. 
We've known each other for a long time.
We both lived in Konawa. Our houses were down the street from each other.
He was in my mom's kindergarten class. He bought her a heart-shaped paper weight for Valentine's Day.
I was in his mom's first grade class. I used to make fish faces at her.
He's 3 years older than me.
I used to chase him around after school each day.
I liked him. He thought I was annoying.
I moved to Purcell.
I watched him play basketball....what a stud.
January of my junior year I had a basketball game at Washington. He was a sophomore at OU.
I didn't want to go to the game.
He was there.
After the game I sat by my  mom. He was sitting one row above me.
He moved down by me to say hi. He said he liked my shoes.
I didn't ride home with my mom so I could stay there longer by him. He was cute.
We went on our first date in March. We got lost twice while driving in OKC.
We're bad with directions.
His friends made fun of him for dating a girl in high school (thanks Thomas). He didn't care.
We fell in love.
August 18, 2010 he asked me to marry him. I said yes.
I am so thankful to God for blessing me with the guy of my dreams.
I can't believe he picked me.
I am the luckiest girl in the world.
