    Ok, so I met my hubby at church while I was a intern there (no Monica jokes please) 🙂
    So we never talked the whole year and I didn’t really now him. I was living in an garage apartment turned when all of a sudden the people (members of the church) needed it so I didn’t have a place to live. My hubby’s Grandma pipped up (real quick like) that I could live there. I know his grandparents very well but not him.
    I went over to see if it would work and guess who they invited over (it was a setup). It took him months to ask me out (but he can over all the time) and kiss me, but 6 months later we were engaged. He took a bucket of ice water and froze two hearts in it then chopped it into a heart and set it in the freezer. He made the ring for me (as he makes jewelery) and put it in the freezer by the heart. He asked me over for dinner and then wanted me to get something out of the freezer for him. I wasn’t expecting it! I kept on asking are you serious. That turned into a yes and we have been married for 14 years this year.
    I can’t believe how much I love him and can’t imagine my life without him!

    What a fantastic giveaway!!!
    Our story? Well… We were at Ricks college and when we first met I was introduced as “that girl who thinks she’s going on a mission”. Future-Hubby replied “Really? We’ll have to do something about that” then returned to flirting with the girls he was sitting with. A few days later he and some friends were trying to organize a group date. Hubby was the only one without a date. I could hear him and another kid out in the hall of my apartment complex arguing. I poked my head out the door to see what was going on. The friend informed me that Future-Hubby was too afraid to ask my neighbor out. So, I called him a chicken and told him to quit being so yellow and just do it. I gave him a really bad time, but he wouldn’t do it. They finally left. About an hour later I got a phone call. Future-Hubby asked if I remembered who he was… now, I thought he was going to ask me to ask the girl across the hall out… so I was a tad defensive… I told him I remembered that he was the chicken. He said, “Yeah, well, the chicken was wondering if you’d like to go to the spaghetti dinner?” Yeah. I’ve never been so humiliated. I said sure and got off the phone quickly. We had a fanastic time at the dinner and the rest is history 🙂

    Well, I’m currently single, but I have two of the best friends in the world, and I would just like to say to them that having them there to talk to, hang out with, shop with, travel with, eat with, gossip with, and basically do everything with is one of the greatest blessings in my life.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Ok- I gotta take the cake on this one- besides the fact that I LOVE Bennefit…

    In a nutshell: DH had to propose three times over ten years before I finally figured out he was the One. He was my college roomate, saw me through multiple disasterous relationship break-ups, and was my very best friend in all ways. He proposed the first time when I was 17, and I thought he was joking, so I laughed at him. The next time, I had recently broken it off with a very bad-boy boyfriend, and I was in no shape to get married. It took DH moving 1000 miles away and having to call him everyday to be near him that made me realize I couldn’t live without him.

    He came down to hangout with my family for a visit, but I was so nervous, I couldn’t even be normal around him, and I dropped him off at the airport and left him there. I went hom and cried for hours. Miracle of miracles, his flight got fogged in and the airport closed, and I got my second chance. I went and picked him up, we went out to dinner, and all was relaxed and normal, the nerves were gone, and I had my best friend back.

    That night, in my kitchen, we were joking with my cousin about how I liked bald men, and DH took some scissors from the drawer and cut his very long hair off, right there. We all were laughing, and I looked to my cousin and asked what I should do- to which he pushed me forward and said “Marry that man”.

    We had our very first kiss that night. And he proposed for the third and final time. We were married a little over 8 months later.

    Pick me! Pick me! I’ll cut my hair off for you!

    This one has to go to my goofy brother, with whom I go to Ren Faires and play intensely competitive games of Monopoly and generally have a good time. Even when he’s going through chemotherapy and scared out of his mind, we can get a good game of Monopoly going and watch the Puppy Bowl together. The kid’s been dealt the fuzzy end of the lollipop way too many times in life but he keeps on smiling and that’s why he’s my #1 guy.

    I met my dearie in class. He dropped a pen, I picked it up… and we did not really talk much until after a few weeks. It was cold and he offered me a ride home, which I rejected because I did not hear well, and my mom taught me to say no when in doubt. Next time I did take the ride, and well, we just kept hanging out together. He always made me laugh, and he keeps doing so 🙂

    For my man patient persistance payed off!! After 7 years of patiently pursuing me I finally said “I DO”.

    We met at the Walmart parking lot when we bumped into each other – literally!

    He was home from Viet Nam, me just graduating high school. We met, we married, demons abounded that we had no clue about (PTSD), in one year we were divorced. Fast forward 27 years, I turn around and there he is. I asked him “Where have you been all my life?” He said “Right where you left me.” Then he asked me if I wanted to go to Reno and get married and I said “How about Vegas.” Today, happily even after!

    We met at college…I was walking to my car and he was driving. He actually proposed at the spot where we first met. Now we are getting married this October.

    Great giveaway, I want to try the California Kissin’ gloss this Valentine’s Day.

    Several years ago, before I became a SAHM, I worked an a teacher’s assistant in a second grade classroom. The students were either had learning disabilities or behavior disorders. Mostly, I worked one on one with N., a student who became epileptic after falling out of a grocery cart as a toddler. From day to day, we did not know whether he would have a grand mal seizure or smaller ones! Fortunately, we only had to call an ambulance once that school year and deal with a few minor seizures. N. would try to use his illness as a way to get out of his schoolwork. I knew he was there to learn. Many days we would go round and round. Then the traditional “Valentine’s Day” school party. I knew better than to expect a card from him.
    N. walked into the classroom and stood before me, unusually quiet! He handed me an adorable hand made card signed with his signature in the best way he knew how. He died in his teens from a brain surgery gone wrong! I still have his card. This is not a traditional love story ( I have a wonderful husband and two teenage sons ), but this story also touched me in a way that nothing else can…..Thanks,Cindi

    Sweet!! It’s the month of love so this comment, of course, is dedicated to my hubby. We actually met in high school but later discovered we attended the same elementary, middle, and junior high schools and never knew it (in different grades). We were friends but didn’t really date until college. Though we frequently wonder how we ever got together because we disagree on almost everything, we really balance each other out. What can I say? We are living proof that opposites attract and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Our song is “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes. The song just makes me happy and warm and mushy…just like my husband does!

    My honey Art and I got together at our 20 year high school reunion. I was recently divorced from my first husband and was leaving the reunion with my brother and his wife who is Art’s sister. We stopped to talk to Art who asked me where my (ex)husband was. I told him I wasn’t with him anymore and he latched on to me and hasn’t let go since! We knew each other in high school but not well. He told me he had been attracted to me in high school, so I asked him why he never asked me out. Being very shy, he said, “By the time I got up enough nerve, you were already taken. One of the great things is that I’ve know his whole family for years because of my brother being married to his sister! What fate that night! I happened to need a ride home and that we stopped to say Hello to him before we left and the rest is history!

    When I met my husband 2 1/2 yrs. ago w both fell head over heels in love, I prayed almost daily for our marriage, than last summer my wish finally came true! That was a day I’ll never forget! My dreams came true!

    This is the cutest idea and the most awesome contest! I love Benefit!

    I met my husband in 1992 in high school – recently broke up with a boyfriend and was on a “group” blond date (remember the parties of 15 going to movies and a diner back in the day?) and well my now-husband was NOT my blond date but another guy there. I was taught to never pursue a guy… but I couldn’t let this one get by! I visited him at the grocery where he worked and harassed my friends until they put in a good word for me.

    Fifteen years later we have been through thick and thin – the passing of two parents, him battling and surviving cancer, him being overseas in the Navy, me at college and now almost four years of marriage!

    My mom always tells how I came home from the movies that night and said, “I met the man I am going to marry!” I knew it December 27, 1992 and I know it still today! 🙂

    My bf and I met at the Boston Esplanade, which is where the Boston Symphony plays every July Fourth. There’s a bridge there and that’s where we met. He noticed me because I was wearing a short skirt that day – the sly man! To this day he always asks about that miniskirt I wore the first day he met me, which I have given away b/c I outgrew it! It got a bit tight basically.

    I am single and have not me the man of my lifetime….only a few men who helped me to understand that I am stronger for not settling. I think that is a huge thing to learn….

  • 19. cyndygail  |  February 25, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    3 years after my husband and I married I was involved in a car accident which put me in the hospital for a couple of weeks. We had never been separated overnite since we had met. Any way when I was well enough to go home I got into our bed and realized my blankets and pillow was on his side. I ask him why and he said that he had slept with them because they smelled like me and it was the only way he could go to sleep.I thought it was so sweet.
    thanks cynthia

    My hubby and I met when I was at a low point in my life. He was very unexpected and I was thankful! We’ve been together for 5 years now and 2 children later and I am loving every minute of it!

    I met my sweetie by driving in town. He came up to me, it wasn’t love at first site but I discovered what an awesome man he is and it’s been love for 22 years.

  • 23. pwhite98270  |  March 1, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    My love is my husband. He runs on integrity and it is a hard road to lead on and equally hard to follow but very rewarding. I have known him over 35 years and he has never wavered from this path. This is why he is the love of my life.
