How I Met My Honey ...



But it was really over corn syrup, a key ingredient in a certain alcoholic beverage.

Well over at ramblingsbyreba,Rebecca's hosting a blog carnival of the best kind of sudsiest sort.

This is the story of how those two drunk kids pictured below, came to be.


I wrote these “How we met” posts a couple of months ago. So we’ll be doing a little linking today (thank goodness because I’m under a work avalanche right now. And did someone say TAXES??!!).

Apologies to my blog pals who've already seen this before. Perhaps some of my schmaltziest work, here for a redux.

With the header that runs across the blog, I suppose the alcoholic theme is quite in keeping with our first meeting. Which involved a bunch of students in Quality Control … and Beer (student's dream job, YES).


Throw in a little Drama (yeah, she gets around a bit …)

And finally, the Date that was sealed with a Kiss

This was just the beginning.

This saga continues with the “nomadic years” in future posts.

What a sweet thing to say about believing in fate. I also think fate had to do with meeting my husband.

How sweet! Gosh, you ARE kids! I'ts amazing how it's not so very long ago, and yet we're still young. And look nothing like that.

How we met, always a fun thing to recount. I love hearing how other couples got together, too.

Thanks for your comment on Call Me. Good to meet another Blondie fan. :))

Yours is a fantastic story! Very romantic, that first date, you navigating the RC sailboat with him behind you, arms wrapped around you. Sigh...

Woooo . . . I'm a reader and I'm such a voyeur. I had to read it all.

"WTH, that was rude-ish!" I don't know why, but that was just hilarious.

I love the description of the kiss--movies don't have anything on the real thing!!!

Love, love the pic of you two.

Oh, and mullets--hee hee :)
