(This is a set of questions I found online and shared with my extended family as we worked on gathering our family history. Fun questions to record for your children!)
When, where & how did you meet? January 2000, Denton Institute (a church building used for religious classes and church services usually associated with a university.) We were at church and introduced in the hallway by mutual friends.
What did you do on your first date? Our first official date we went swing dancing – Friday, March 31st. It was in a dormitory building on the UNT campus that did swing lessons each Friday night. No one knew yet that we were together but a friend saw us there and word spread quickly.
What was your most memorable date (before or after marriage)?
When and where was your first kiss? Kit’s apartment (on Hickory Street in Denton, which has since been torn down) on March 28th/29th – it was after midnight we’re pretty sure. After talking for hours and hours and admitting my crush and him saying he liked me, too, and then some more talking I finally said to him (I was tired, it was late, I had no filter), “Aren’t you going to kiss me?” Then he kissed me.
Tell us about your proposal? The first time Kit proposed was April 2nd/3rd (again, pretty sure it was after midnight) and it was in the middle of a conversation about something completely unrelated. He just slipped it in there, “Marry me,” and I said, “Yes,” and we kept talking. Then he proposed every day for the next two weeks, randomly popping the question when we were together – Will you marry me? Marry me? Want to get married? Every day for two weeks. When my wedding band arrived he knelt on one knee and slipped it on my finger and that was one of the times he proposed. That last time he proposed was in the foyer of the Dallas temple after he went through for his endowments (about three weeks after I went through for myself the first time.) I said yes in the temple and then I guess he took me seriously.
When and where were you married? July 8, 2000 in the Mount Timpanogos LDS Temple in American Fork, Utah.
Tell us about your wedding? (To come.)
Where did you live as newlyweds? We had an apartment just off of Preston in Frisco, Texas – back when it was still a pretty small town. Kit worked off the Tollway also in Frisco, then later off the tollway in Dallas. In March 2001 we moved to LA when his company consolidated offices.
Anything else you would like to share? (More later.)
