How they Met from Andrew:
I met my future wife on February 5th, 2011. I remember this evening vividly because it was the day before the Superbowl. It was also the night I was throwing a going away party for my roommate John. He was deploying to Iraq for the second time early the next morning. Instead of spending the entire night with John, I decided to Take Lindsey out on our first date.
I picked Lindsey up at her house. The only word to describe her was STUNNING. Being the fly by the seat of my pants kind of guy, I asked her what she wanted to do that night? That’s when I found out she wasn’t a very decisive woman, however, she seemed to like to shoot pool so we were off. However, she insisted on one stop on the way – the local drive through frozen daiquiri/margarita joint. For those of you who do not live in the South, some towns literally have drive through liquor stores where you can buy a to go cup of delicious daiquiri. This was my first of many firsts with Lindsey.
Following my daiquiri and her Cadillac margarita we made it to the pool hall. Lindsey was quiet, but super smirky. She laughed at my awful jokes and made me laugh at the same time. I was enamored with her. I liked her so much, I even let her beat me at pool- twice. At this point in my life, I had developed a set of rules for first dates. The most important one was to “ALWAYS have a way OUT.” This first date was different however, while we were having a great time playing pool, I let her know I was having a party at my place and invited her to join us. Once we arrived I just remember all of my friends asking me “How in the world was I able to get this girl to pay any attention to me?!?!” Well, to this day I still don’t know how I am so lucky to have Lindsey in my life. But, for some reason she still looks at me with that same smirky face, still makes me laugh, still calls me her best friend and I can’t wait to soon call her “My Wife”.
