on meeting your husband on xanga & the office

i've said it before, but james and i have no clue when or where we met. we knew of each other for 3 years before we started dating, but never really talked...EXCEPT...through random xanga comments. technically we didn't meet on xanga, but did it facilitate interaction? sure. i think aim helped a litte, too. we are nerds.

today i decided to go back and read parts of my old site (oh xanga how i love you--we had some good times in college). this made me laugh, a lot. little did either of us have any idea that we would marry each other 3 years later.

July 7, 2005 (when I was living in Kansas for the summer and James was in Ecuador):

Top 5 Places I Do Not Want To Meet My Future Husband:
5. airport. some guy from california definitely asked for my number during my terrible 6 hour stint in the denver airport. who does that?
4. demolation derby. trust me, it's just a bad idea.
3. Elimidate (or the afterparty--Lisa! ).
2. got a message titled "silvylicious" last week. are you kidding me?!?
1. bar. in the words of a dear friend, "any guy who buys you a long island ice tea is trouble."
(honorable mention: chapel. boys should go to chapel to worship God, not meet girls.)

"HAHA, that post was halarious. I guess I gotta re-think why I go to chapel, nah just playin. My summer is goin pretty well, nice and chilled out right now. Sounds and looks like you are having a blast, but still entirely too much time on your hands to make your Xanga look this nice, I like it. I am pretty bummed out about not being able to play flag football next year. I am stoked that I don't have to ref it though. But I will miss seeing you run over all those little girls that have no clue what they are doing...hahaha, good times. Take it easy"

can't you see the love brewing in james' comment? riiight.

in other news, we got about 5 emails today to say that our wedding pictures were used in a video clip for the office. i don't really watch the show, but it's still kinda cool. check it out (our pictures start about 30 seconds into the clip):

So, I don't get it. How do your wedding photos keep getting picked up by people?

Emily said...

I saw your guys' picture on a RANDOM website and it said "how to find true love" how cute:)

i love it. ryan and i fell in love via texting (when my mouth was wired shut). i still have most of the texts on an old sim card.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE old emails! I do. I also love reading my journal where I write, "Handsome is going to make such a great husband for some girl one day." Ha, um, didn't realize it was gonna be me though...
