I'd say it all started in August of 2011, even though it's hard to give an exact "starting" day. I decided to create a team on a bowing league. I sent out a mass text to all my Las Vegas friends, inviting them to join my team. Seconds after sending it out, I was browsing through my phone list for anyone I might have possibly missed, and I stumbled upon BJ Norton's name. So, I sporadically sent out my final- solo- invite.
Though he wasn't the the first to get invited, he was the first to respond, and the first to officially join Team Incredibowls. BJ was actually my old college roommate Randi's older brother. We had definitely met and seen each other here and there over the years of knowing Randi. When I moved to Vegas I saw him a couple of times, and he helped me move a few times too. But we had never actually just hung out consistently. . . until bowling league started that is.
So by September we were hanging out weekly (with team Incredibowls of course)!
By mid December he had definitely become one of my top texting buddies.
And by the first of January, we officially started dating.
Besides a few random trips out of town, both mine and his, (at first it seemed that one of us was always out of town. Never at the same time though. Fancy how that works!), we were always together. But with a 35 minute commute between our two houses (we didn't exactly live close to each other), that started to get pretty old, pretty fast. So almost 6 months to the day of our first "date," BJ proposed to me in St. George, Utah,
And that's just what happened!
The wedding was perfect!
We were happy
And our families were amazing with it all!
And life one month later has been just as perfect!
. . . Besides the broken air conditioner.
. . . And the mess with the HOA getting Doogle a permanent gate at the new house.
. . . And having to replace the carpet in the other house . .
Ok. . . Maybe not perfect. But close enough!
