Our Story

Doug and I met (officially) on September 1st, 2011. We were living in the same apartment complex. My roommate was basically in love with his roommate... so we were around them a lot. I was taken with this ginger-headed boy from the very beginning, but it took a couple months for him to catch on... or for anything to start up, for that matter.

Yeah. I was that stalker chick who wouldn't get off his tail.

I must have done something right though, because he finally asked me on a date in November... the day before Thanksgiving. Nearly 3 months after I first started crushin' on him. (Fun little tidbit: my roommate and his roommate started dating earlier that same month.)

A few dates here and there FINALLY (it seemed like forever, okay?) led to a relationship at the beginning of the new year. From there, I suppose things progressed comparatively quickly.

I always told myself that I wouldn't be one of "those" girls who gets engaged super quickly. What I did not expect was falling in love. And having him falling in love right back. And what can I say? When you know... you know.

Before I knew it, we were engaged on February 10th, 2012. (And here's another fun tidbit... my roommate and his roommate were engaged a week later!)

The next 3.5 months were fun, albeit stressful. All the planning, the anticipating, the happiness. We had a good 2.5 months together as we finished the school semester... And then I had to go back to Fresno to plan wedding stuff. He stayed in Provo to continue working. We did not see each other for a month.

He came over to CA a week before the wedding. The night before the big day was filled with anticipation and I couldn't fall asleep... (***since you took the time to visit this page, you get to read Doug's thoughts on the matter)

Then it was May 26th.
The day that made me the happiest girl in the world!
And I must say, I'm pretty proud of our Sweet Shoppe reception.

Honeymooning in South CA... Disneyland...
Now we have a little baby girl named Nicole, and I'm loving every minute of our family life!


  1. I didn't think I'd be one of the get engaged quickly girls either. But hey it happens! Plus when you know you just know. I moved in with my hubs after 2 months of dating then got engaged 2 months after that! We also just had our wedding in May. Yay for newly weds!!!

  2. I do love a good love story!
