The story of how we met and our first date isn't necessarily a dramatic or Hollywood story. It's special to us and I love retelling it between Adam and myself.
About three years and four months ago, I fell into the lap of my now husband. This was not a pathetic excuse to pick him up, I was literally shoved into his lap - in a not-so-graceful-I-hope-I-didn't-just-squish-you kind of way. We were out with our own friends at a downtown Peoria bar and I stayed to chat and apologize. A brief chat with Adam and his buddy, Danny, turned into about 90 minutes of laughing with a little flirting. Then...my heart sunk - they were leaving to head to another bar. Our hands brushed as he left the bar (in sweatpants, I might add - yes, Adam was wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt at a downtown bar). WTF!? He didn't even get my number!
I briefly mentioned it to my girlfiriends - I was bummed he left and there would be no chance of me to get in touch with him again. Except when his friend, Danny, walked back in the bar about 30 minutes later.
"Did he do something wrong?" Danny asked.
"No! You can give him my number!"
It wasn't even another 10 minutes later that Adam and I were texting back and forth. I had a crush!
Two days went by with practically no contact. I was still thinking about him and was telling my friend, Annie, about him and showing her the texts we shared that night. I really hope he calls. Literally, at that moment, my phone lit up and it was him! He called! We went on a date and another and another.
