Jeremy and I have been together since 2002. 11 years is a long time for a relationship these days. I’m proud of our relationship. We’ve been through a lot and we’ve come through it together and stronger than ever.

When I met Jeremy I was a young 19 years old. I was an adult and I knew everything. I was fresh out of high school, working my first ‘real’ job and wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time. I remember seeing him at a quarterly luncheon. They called his name for a perfect attendance award and everyone was clapping and cheering. I didn’t know his name, so I was looking around to see who everyone was cheering for. Here comes Jeremy break dancing down the middle of the tables. I couldn’t help but smile. I knew we’d be friends. He always had a smile on his face and you could tell he was a fun-loving person. Little did I know, we’d be married 4 years later.

After that luncheon, I didn’t see Jeremy for a while. He’d pass by every now and then, but we didn’t know each other. One day as I was heading to break, a friend walked up and started talking about some guy. He was going to have this guy come talk to me. Huh?! Wait a minute….who? Yep, you guessed it….Jeremy! I was so embarrassed. What would I say? When would this happen? All these things were going through my head and I was nervous. Why was he coming to talk to me?!

A few days passed and Jeremy still hadn’t come. I thought maybe he’d forgotten or just decided not to come see me. I was kinda relieved to be honest. I went on about my business doing my crappy job and I see him in the corner of my eye cross by. I was nervous. Was he coming to see me? I turned, filling out my papers and I hear a voice say something. I turned back around and there he is. I’d never been face to face with him. He introduced himself and I told him my name. You wanna know the first thing he asked me? “Do you play any instruments?” What!? Do I play any instruments?! What an odd thing to ask me! We still laugh about that all the time. I imagine he must have been so nervous. We had small talk and he asked for my number.

We had the pleasure of having a date night tonight. The boys are at my mom’s house for the night and we decided to hit up a movie. We saw ‘We’re the Millers.’ It was hilarious. Seriously. It was a lot funnier than I expected. I heard its gotten some bad reviews, but I would recommend it to anyone that liked comedies.

After the movie was over we came home. It’s so quiet here without the boys. Lucy walks around and mopes when they’re not here. It’s kinda pitiful. I sure do miss them, but it’s nice to get some alone time with the hubby.

Jeremy is my best friend. So, lucky to have a husband that I enjoy being around. We have so much fun together. We’ve been together for 11 years and I think we have as much fun, if not more, than when we first started dating. I appreciate everything he does for us and our family. He’s a great dad to our kids and a great husband. Love you Jerms!! 

We’ve been sidetracked from our couch to 5k. I think we will start that back up tomorrow. I really want to start focusing on our diets and exercise more. That’s my next big change and scariest for me. It takes so much dedication and I’m so afraid of failing at it. But, trying is better than doing nothing about it. Right?!

Off to bed! See you folks tomorrow.
