{My Man}

Thursday, April 15, 2010
After reading my friend Jenny Lee's post about "her man," I decided to play along. I really don't talk a lot about Ryan on this blog, so this is a great opportunity for me.

Ryan and I have been married for a year and a half. We have two beautiful boys together named Braeden and Bayler. What a lot of people don't know, is how we met.

I love country, Ryan is country. We met in a bar called Cody's one night by pure luck. A song came on that I wanted to dance to ... none of my guys friends wanted to dance, so I walked up to the dance floor and grabbed the first guy I saw. I had no idea what he looked like when I grabbed him, just wanted to dance. I think I said something like, "We're Dancing." I am just so romantic! After a few minutes of talking on the dance floor, he introduced me to all his friends. At the end of the night, Ryan gave me his business card ... yup ... he's that guy! He will tell you that after we met that night, he knew I was the one. Funny, I went home to my parents the next day for lunch and told them the same thing :) Just nine months after we started dating, we found out about Braeden. I had mixed feelings until I saw Ryan's face ... pure excitement. He did however make me wait until AFTER I had Braeden to propose ... I swear. Anyways, it's our love story, and I can't wait to share it with our boys one day. They will probably want to throw up :)

That is too funny about you being the neck! Ha! Y'all have a great story. I think I might want to do this. I'm always talking about the boys on my blog, maybe for a change I'll post something about Justin!!! Thanks for the idea.
