1. Where did you meet your husband?
I officially met Kyle on a trip to Greer with my cousin Shari Johnson and some friends. We went camping over Memorial Day Weekend in 2001. I knew of him because of all the Gila Valley girls he had previously date.

2. What was the first thing you said to your husband?
I don’t remember. I just remember he had me cracking up laughing when we were at the cabin that night!! Seriously my eyes were watering I was laughing so hard.

3. Where was your first date?
Our 1st first date (June 2001) was a movie, “Laura Kroft, Tomb Raider.” Our second 1st date (April 2002) was the Diamondbacks 2nd game of the season, I think they were playing the cubs. I even got a ring that night (no not a diamond ring, a Diamondback World Series ring). Diamond ring… Diamondback ring… hmm???

4. Where was your first kiss?
Our 1st kiss was in a hotel room in San Diego (don’t worry, it was very G rated, ok, maybe a little PG). The story we plan to tell our children… Our 1st kiss was on a pier at Seaport Village in San Diego.

5. Did you have a long or short courtship/engagement?
We started dating in April 2002 and were married by September 5, 2002. The longest summer I ever had.

Kyle took me to eat at the Melting Pot in Scottsdale, after dinner we walked around the lake behind the restaurant were he proposed to me.

Which one?? Kyle say’s we had the longest wedding ever. We had pictures taken the night before our wedding. Then got married on a Thursday had our wedding reception in Pima on Saturday, then more pictures the following Saturday and an Open House at the Shalimar in Tempe. But I think they both turned out really nice. My mom and my Aunt Valerie and Aunt Lynne helped put together the reception and my sister decorated the cake.
