How did you meet your husband? How did he propose? My husband moved into my ward at Riviera Apartments when he got home from his mission. The first time we met was in the parking lot on the way to church one Sunday morning. He proposed a week shy of our one-year anniversary of dating. I was not expecting it, but thought we were celebrating my graduation from BYU. He brought me flowers and took me to dinner after finals were over. Then we watched Tangled, which was our first date. On our first date he tried to hold my hand, and at the same part in the movie, he asked for my hand in marriage. It was adorable, and I said yes. :)
The best thing about being married is: Having your best friend around all the time, forever.
What do you and your husband like to do together? We like to go to sports games and hang out with our families.
What would be your perfect day? Wake up and eat a massive breakfast burrito, spend the day with my husband and family, and end it all with a movie and some ice cream.
What was the best advice you got/would give on marriage? Pray together.
What story does your family always tell about you? When I was really little my dad had been in a bishopric for a few years. At Christmas, I wrote to Santa that I just wanted my dad to sit next to me at church. He showed it to the stake president and was released very soon after.
