I’m Telling.

More of your questions, answered. (Enjoy my reliving the past with all my awesome, scanned photos!)

“How did you and your husband meet?”Melissa

I moved back to North Dakota in the early spring of 1998 and started hanging out with my cousin (who is also one of my bffs!), her friends became my friends, yada yada. Justin had graduated high school the year before her and they shared mutual friends. We all ended up partying at a friend’s trailer house later that summer. Shut UP. We were 18. Don’t judge. It was love at first beer sight. We started “dating” in September of that year and conceived our daughter in October. Shut UP. Our beautiful little baby was born in June of ’99 and we got married on Valentines Day of 2000. We are coming up on our 10-year-anniversary and I can hardly believe it. This year has been really hard on both of us, so I am really, REALLY hoping that 2010 brings good things and a nice anniversary vacation.

 



“Do you prefer being a blonde or brunette?”Alex

Honestly? I think I am a blonde at heart. For you that know me personally, I am sure you are laughing your asses off and agreeing with me. I had light, light blonde hair until my freshman year of high school. On a whim, I died it a golden blonde. Only, what I got was an olive-green grayish disaster. It was horrid. Ever since that tragic day, my hair has grown in darker. I get bored easily and like to change it up every so often, so right now I love the darker hair. It matches my moody, bitchy side which has been prevalent for most of this year. But watch out, I am thinking my blonde, bubbly self may make an appearance once it starts warming up again in June.

    Did, you were a BABY in that first picture!!

    And I'm pretty sure you are one of the few people that can pull off any hair color.

    you are the cutest!!!

    i think i like you better as a brunette, but that's only because i tried to go brunette once and it did NOT look good, so i'm jealous that you can pull off both colors ;)

    So, this brings me to another question. Or 2. What was your major in college? Did you ever finish college?
