How we met: A Windows Phone #Giveaway #MeetYours

Long before this adorable little cutie (if I do say so myself), it was just her daddy and I. And boy do we have a story.

It’s almost Valentines Day, and I don’t know about you, but I love a good love story. My husband and I met eight and a half years ago and we’ve been married for eight of those. Nuts right?

Remember how I told you about one of my new loves, as in, my new phone? Well, here’s a condensed version of our  story, created with the How We Met App on Facebook highlighted through the lens of a Windows Phone.

Betcha didn’t know I was just a kid when I got hitched (though I felt much older looking back, I’m a little like WOAH!… Glad he’s not crazy! Anyway…) of course the adorable little girl, and babies came later and in between all of that. You can see our animated full story right here and create your own. As a matter of fact, if you do, and share your story with me in the comments you’ll be entered to win your own Windows phone. TWO actually. One for you, and one for your honey. I know you’ll love them as much as I do once you #MeetYours. You can enter using my Rafflecopter form below. It ends February 13th, good luck!

My love and I met at a dance club when I was out withfriends. He was the security there and no one was asking me to dance. He came and talked to me and the rest is history. Ten years later, we are dancing through life.

My husband and I started dating in high school in 9th grade, where we met on the school bus, We had to sit together daily because w had assigned seats. We started talking and doing our homework together on the bus. We dated for 6 years, We got married at age 21. We have been married for 18 years and plan to renew our vows on our 20th anniversary.

My husband and I met at a liquor store, lol. I in my car waiting for a friend and he was going in with a group of guys. He noticed me and came to my car to talk to me. I hate telling people that we met at a liquor store because I don’t drink so I usually say we met a the library. At our wedding when the DJ asked people to guess where we met about 10 people screamed out library, lol.

We met through a mutual friend, and after about a month of being “friends” we started dating. We’ve been together for almost 7 years now 🙂

My husband and my cousin were best friends, we met when I came out to visit my cousin before he left for boot camp when I was 17. We started dating long distance (he lived in Indiana and I lived in Pennsylvania) and after 9 months he proposed! We got married exactly (to the day) 2 yrs after we met, have been married for 3.5 years and now have an awesome 20 month old daughter! 🙂

A Love story from From the City by the Bay and the City that never Sleeps

There once was a girl named Martha, born and raised in San Francisco, she always had dreams of living in New York City.
There once was a boy named Tyson, born and raised in the Bronx, he was a natural born artist.
In 2005 Martha made her move to the big city, loving every minute of the hustle and bustle.
But it wasn’t until 2008 that these two met by chance (some call it destiny) at a restaurant on the Hudson River in Harlem.
They became friends, they spent more and more time together, they fell in love.
Wanting God’s will for their lives and believing that includes each other the two love birds joined in marriage on the Island of Barbados in July 2011.
They now await their first child this March 2013 to join them in their happy home in Harlem.

We meet at EFY when we were 17… six years later I was stranded in Arizona with a dead car and my knight and shining armor Drue came to save me. We finished my road trip visiting each temple in the south and admitting our feeling for each other at the Houston Temple and having our first kiss at the Baton Rouge temple. Since then we we’ve been happily in love.

John Woodruff says:

My brand new Fiancee and I are absolutely in love with each other!!! And we are also absolutely in love with those beautiful Windows Phones!!! I just proposed yesterday and we’d love to start out life together with two Windows Phones to pin stuff of each other on!!! 😀

Thanks for sharing the app! It’s a fun one!

Love reading about your stories with your hubby. I feel like I know him to. Hope I win!

Hasina says:

Lovely story. Hubby and I met at a house party.The party ended around 4am and instead of leaving we spent the next 5 hours talking to each other. 2 yrs and a one year old later, we plan on wedding this Summer. Cool giveaway. God knows we both need one! Our current phones can’t even hold 12 pics and they’re not very smart either! 🙂

Shannon says:

My husband isn’t on Facebook…..bummer. We met in college and hit it off. Went our separate ways after undergraduate school, but God brought us back together!

I’m excited to see who the winner is. I hope it’s me! Although, I won’t be at all surprised when it’s not. haha. 🙂

Brianna Best says:

Omg! We share the same birthday! That’s so crazy lol I’ve been following your blog since even before I was pregnant, one of the first articles I read was how to convince your husband to have a baby (which didn’t actually work :p) buuuut he did cave in the end and we now have a beautiful 8 month old son and I’m following your pregnancy now. I hope you have a boy 🙂 good luck!
