Confession Monday...yes I know it is Wednesday!

Ok yes I know it is Wednesday, but let me remind you just how crazy busy I have been with my Ebay conquests.

Ok that said, I am a little late with this, but I didn't want the week to pas me by and not participate in this. I have been reading this Mommy confession blog .

She is giving out topics and putting it out for us to reply. This Monday's confession topic...

"What is the craziest thing you have ever done for love?"

I don't know if this is so much as crazy, or just a little irresponsible. But I got engaged less than 2 months after I met my husband. Not only did I barely know him, I accepted his marriage proposal over the phone. What can I say, I was 21 and dumb.
Quick synopsis of our courtship. It would have to be quick, because the courtship was quick. We met 2 weeks before he was going off to college in Phoenix. We decided to keep dating even though it was long distance. He was gone for about a month before we realized that that we were miserable without each other. So we were on the phone one night and he says, "why don't you just move down here and we'll get married".

Me- (young....dumb) hey! that sounds like a great idea!! What could go wrong?!!

Well to make a long story short, he ended up moving back, but we were married that following June.

It seems like it should have been a disaster waiting to happen , but 10 years and 3 kids later here we are. Almost all of our married friends have since gotten divorced, but not us. Who knows...maybe ignorance really is bliss :)

It turns out it was the best decision that I have ever made. And Lord knows I have made some dumb ones.

Since she hasn't updated this yet, I needed to set the record straight.

She goofed up on the time frame a bit.

We had actually known each other for around 8 months or so, had become good friend for 5 of those, and then started DATING for 2 MONTHS before I left for college.

When you know, you know... you know?

And like she said, we outlasted most of our other friends marriages...

Amazing what happens when you get married because you just "Don't want to stop hanging out with someone."

Ok we sort of knew each other, but we only DATED for 2 months before we got engaged.
That's still pretty looney.

But it worked out.
