How I Met My Husband Blog Hop

I joined up for a blog hop over at Melinda Dozier and today I am sharing how I met my husband, in 150 words words or less.

We met at church! I had come in for a visit from college. At the time, I had a boyfriend back at college, so I didn't really pay any attention to him. My next visit home was for the Christmas holiday. This time I didn't have a boyfriend and this time I DID notice him. He had the bluest, most gorgeous eyes I had ever seen! He asked me, "Do you want to do lunch?" (yes, those exact words.) and I said, "I don't even know your name." And his reply? "I don't know yours, either, but we can figure tht out over dinner."

That night, he told me he wanted to see me tomorrow night, and the next night, and the night after that and every night for the rest of his life. And we have been together ever since:)

Unfortunately, I do not have a picture, yet. I am away from home on business, but I am asking my daughter to email me an old pic. I will post later!

Princess Transformation

Update: It's out last "Pulled" Secret. We got 4 out of A.L. and I hope you enjoyed learning a few little personal things about this amazing author. I know I did. Thank you, Ms. Jackson , for agreeing to spill oyur guts, while we "Pulled" away!

Now, from A.L.'s pen to my blog:

 Okay, here's something kind of funny and embarrassing for you all! 
I have to be thankful I'm a writer, because when I get nervous, I can't seem to make a coherent thought come out of my mouth. Get me on the phone with a stranger and I'm blubbering all over the place.

We did it! Matilda could not have done it without all your lovely comments, and here is the proof. A.L. has even snagged her Princess Charming :)

PULLED is all about a a young girl who lost everything. Melanie looked for love, true love, a love that transcends every sense, every feeling, every emotion. A love that fills the heart with warmth, laughter, healing, and an abundance of sunshine and joy. In the sense of the ugly step sisters, Vanessa (oh, you will have to read the book before I can tell you who she is or what she does. Go ahead. Buy it. Now:) has an egotistic desire in love. One that fulfills only self and thinks of no one but, well, Vanessa.

We had a character interview lined up with Melanie and Vanessa, but Vanessa was a no show. Of course, this could only be expected. Maybe she was too embarrassed?

Oh, AND now! We have another sweet secret from A.L. for the 30th comment. The day is still not over and there is still time for more comments. I think we need 9 more if you want a new secret PULLED  from the heart of A.L.

 Lets see I owe you something about me...hmmm let's go with fairy tale and fate:

Do I believe in love at first sight? I do. Have I ever experienced it? Maybe. The first time I saw my husband, I was a freshman in high school. Even though he was standing at  his locker and I saw him from behind, I literally stopped in my tracks and grabbed my friend to ask "Who is that?" It was an immediate attraction that I hung onto for years, even though it would be years before we were together. It seemed it was never the right time for us, I was with someone else and then he was away at college, but that attraction never went away. Was it love? I'd like to think so because finally we were brought together. Now 18 years later, I'm still with the love of my life.
Aaawwww! She did have a fairy tale ever after. How sweet!!

So, now, we can only look to A.L. and her princess transformation. Let's take a look at her new princess outfit, shall we?

We have glass slippers.

And a crown.
Your horse drawn carriage.
And, finally, Prince Charming.

Now, make sure you are home before midnight. I think you know what happens if you are late...
