I'm doing the Newlywed Hop today.
How did you meet your husband?
I met Johnny in 2010, I was 21, and he was 20.
It was 5 a.m. on Black Friday.
I had worked at Charlotte Russe for 2 years in the mall, and I had recently taken a second job there at Gap Kids. I was at Gap Kids working that morning. I was standing the in front of the store greeting people and I saw this incredibly good looking guy walk by with his friends and stare at me.
I thought I imagined it, but he walked by again.
Then he walked by a third time, and I was like "ok, what gives, at least talk to me!"
He walked in this time, and asked me if I could help him find a gift for his niece.
I walked around the store helping him, trying to find the perfect gift, when he finally told me he didn't have a niece and just wanted an excuse to talk to me.
I gave him my number, and we ended up hanging out.
After our second date, I hugged him goodbye, got in my car and TOTALED IT one street away from his apartment. I called him an hour later from the hospital and he came up there right away to see me and make sure I was ok.
