How i met my husband, my love story


Few weeks ago, we went to memory lane and had dinner at the restaurant where hubby and i had our first date. Golden Isle Chinese restaurant in Murray, Utah.


We sat in the booth behind my boy.



we had coconut shrimp and Lobster shrimp, very yummy.

I met my hubby Russ 14 years ago, i was going to school in Orem to UVSC. Now an University.
I met him at church, he was checking out girls.
The day before, i had an 9 hour hike to the "Subway"


I was seated in the sacrament room with my best friend Marci and few rows  in front of us were 2 boys. I liked one right away and thought...perfect, Marci will go out with the other.
Then at the end of the meeting they both stood up and my choice "Russ" was even more handsome from the front. LOL
I saw him later in the hall and he asked me if i knew any good French restaurant and i said not really...then he said if i wanted to go out for Chinese food and i said yes...super fast. I was totally in love. Love at first sight. His light green eyes were so gorgeous!
I was jumping up and down afterward and could not believe it because guys don't usually ask you out at church.
We were married 6 months later.
For me it was very important to have a spiritual confirmation or good feeling to know marrying Russ was the right thing to do. I take my marriage vows with God very seriously.
I had my answer at the Jordan river Temple.



In my faith we believe that we are married for ever.
This makes me very happy.

14 years and 4 babies later, I'd say it has been a good marriage. Congratlations.

I love remembering our first date too. After 33 years we still talk about it. You truly do have a beautiful family. Mine has all grown up and we are watching our children be the parents now. Love your blog. Oh, and by the way, I am from Provo, UT and we were married in in the Manti Temple. Hugs to you all!
