MoNDaYs MeMoRieS #1

HeLLo WoRLD!! 
So SoRRy THaT iT'S BeeN FoReVeR!!!

don't you worry though cause we are back up and running :)

But remember a while back when I asked for the numbers?
Then Andrea and Candace were stellar enough to help me out?

Well that's what wound us up here :)

HaHa oK so bear with me for a minute. I came up with this idea, and I  think it'll be a lot of fun! 

You ready for this?

Here's the deal. 
1. I am going to ask for one number between 1 and at least 310, each week it'll probably be bigger.  This is the number of albums in my iPhoto library right now. So the number you pick is the album I will choose.
2. Then I am going to ask for another number. This number is the picture that I will post from this album. 
3. Then I will tell you all about the picture! The story behind it, memories, the works. And if you have more questions, ask away! I'll just keep adding to it :) 

Great way to jot down memories, right? Be excited!

ToDaYs PiC iS 3.1

Since I wasn't exactly around for this HaPPy LiTTLe eVeNT, I decided to go to the people that were :)

...My PaReNTS...

I couldn't have asked for a better set of them :) 
Really though. My parents have been the biggest support to me throughout my life. 
I know it's cliche, and there are a lot of people that say the exact same thing about their own, but it's true! 

I have the parents who would play night games with all us kids and our friends.
Who would take us to Harmons to buy candy so we could run a candy stand in the front yard; only to eat 75% of the candy ourselves. 
Who came to every softball game I played in, and still do :)
My mom was my Girl Scout Leader, and then followed me all the way through Young Womens. 
My dad has done the same with my bro-ha's. 

I know they would do anything and everything they ever could for me. 
Nothing I could ever do would ever be enough to pay them back for all they've done for me. 

I LoVe YoU MoM & DaD!!

With that said, onto the story to go with the picture :) 

1. HoW DiD YoU TWo MeeT?
DaD: I walked out the door of apartment #95 at at University Villa in Provo and saw Bob Vukich (the future brother-in-law) looking at a car for this very attractive young lady. All of the sudden I knew a lot about cars and knew that i could be of some assistance. 
MoM: To say he walked out the door might be an exaggeration, since you typically hobble when you have a busted up leg. That day at the car was our first meeting, but I saw him laying around at the Villa pool for several weeks. It was hard to get too close though, since he was a poor weakling surrounded by girls every time I saw him. Luckily for me he couldn't get away too fast...and so...eventually I won out!!    
2. WHaT DiD YoU TWo Do oN YoUR FiRST DaTe?
DaD: We went to Trafalga Fun Center and went water sliding with Bob and Laurie.
MoM: Trafalga all the way!!  I let him walk behind me!!  I'm sure it wasn't on the first date, but the first time Neil tried to kiss me, I thought he was looking out the car window so I turned my head to see what he was looking at. Oops! Apparantly, he checked with our friend later to see if I really liked him or not. I guess he took the whole "not kissing incident" personally!!
2. WHaT WaS YouR FaVoRiTe DaTe? 
DaD: Trafalga, mom went up the stairs first.
MoM:  We actually spent every day together doing random and pretty uneventful things. Just being together was the best!!
4. WHeN DiD YoU KNoW YoU WaNTeD To GeT MaRRieD?
DaD: Trafalga or shortly there after.
MoM:  I just knew I loved being with Neil and never wanted that to end!  
5. HoW DiD THe PRoPoSaL Go?
DaD: I'm not much of a romantic so it went something like this, but not exactly like "how would you feel about spending the rest of forever with me................turn on the movie please"
MoM: That pretty much sums it up. We dated every day for a month and a half, and on one of those random "dates" (however it was a little more eventful because of the proposal(?)) he said "So what would you say if I asked you something crazy, and asked you to marry me?" I said, "I don't didn't ask me!" So...he asked me if I would, I agreed, we kissed alot and put on a movie. I had just been waiting for him to make the move!
DaD: NOT, and I don't wear my collars up.
MoM: Great! I pretty much did nothing and my mom took care of the details!

See WHaT i MeaN?
They are so great :)
