So this is when my life with kylie begins. I was 18 and he was 21. I graduated high school then we were both off to school at EIU. I lived in a dorm and he commuted.
We have some really great memories from eastern. He was a master at the toy crane game, I swear my dorm room was filled with hideous stuff animals, but I kept them. We loved eating dog n suds and getting cinnamon rolls from wal mart and going to the lake. We used to eat cinnamon rolls and have stick races under the dock.
We also had a small obsession with mini golf. We frequently went on dates to mini golf. Decatur, Effingham, Mattoon, Charleston, we knew them all! It was lots of fun. At semester, I quit eiu and transferred to lake land community college for cosmetology. I moved home and it was great. I really hated living in Charleston, but it did give me some wonderful memories. I started hair school in jan. 06 and kylie and I shared rides. It was really nice.
At this point I knew I wanted to marry him. We talked about getting married and what we wanted for our lives. I never imagined that in just a year, I would be in love and ready to REALLY make a commitment to him. After we had dated for a year, I was expecting a ring at any moment. He would trip and I would think he was proposing. It was ridiculous. I loved him and couldn’t wait to be his wife. I would pester him all the time about when we were getting married. I found a ring at wal-mart that I LOVED, but he refused to buy me a ring from wal-mart. So we went looking. I didn’t really care what kind of ring I got, as long as I had one. I told him I trusted him to find something fabulous and if he was in doubt, buy a solitaire. So that was that. Except I couldn’t help but keep pestering and questioning him ALL the time. He would get mad at me. He wanted it to be a surprise but I wouldn’t let him. One day he cracked and said he had the ring! I almost lost it. When I knew he had it, I turned every scenario into a proposal. I’m not kidding I was so ridiculous! Then, out of no where he got me!
