Friday Flashback: Our 1st Date



My first date with my husband was to a Sadie Hawkins dance my senior year in high school. We had a great time at the dance. We even went ice skating after the dance.

The tradition for a Sadie Hawkins dance is for the girl to ask the guy out. I asked my husband out on our first date! My husband used to claim that didn't matter because we didn't start dating then. He also claims that he adored me in earlier years. He says he had his eye on me when he was a freshmen and I was a sophomore. I believe him because it seems incredibly sweet.

We didn't start dating after that Sadie Hawkins dance. My hubby saw me at the mall with a friend (neighbor boy) and he made a seemingly logical assumption. Thankfully the details were worked out and he asked me to my senior prom in May. That's when we started dating. It's fun to think about those early years... and crazy to think that a high school love can be the real thing.

Let's see... Jonathan's almost 8 so in 7 years he would be in high school...wow...that is crazy to think about.

That is such a cute picture! I also married my high school sweetheart! Bill and I met in 9th grade, when he moved to our town. We didn't start dating steadily until the summer after our junior year.

Great memories!
