jon jon and shan shan part 1.

Okay, so I kinda feel the pressure sine a lot of Mackey Madness followers will be creeping my blog for the engagement story! BUTTTT... Before I get to that, I am going to tell you a little bit about our story first! Then you can hear/read the engagement story another day... guess you will have to come back! :)

It all started in the Spring semester of 2010! I went to a local book/movie/music store called Hastings with a friend because they also have coffee and we wanted to get some. We got our coffee and started walking around, after leaving the book section I ran into my friend James who was with Jonathan. I had met Jonathan before but we had never spoken since. They were renting Brothers and joked with them about how they were totally going to cry like babies! A day or two later I had written on both of their facebook walls and asked if they had cried, of course they said no... but i still think they did! After, Jonathan and I had then moved our relationship to facebook chat... We talked about weird stuff like parachute pants and other ridiculous things trying to make conversation! After we had spoken a few times he gave me his phone number and told me to text him... he then signed of quickly because he was really nervous about what would happen next! Of course I texted him! Those text eventually led to us hanging out in real life. I was spending the night with another friend on my college campus and we were bored at night so I text Jonathan and told him to make a secret note and then hide it for us to find! He then proceeded to call himself Presidente and i was agent somethin... Agent had a lot of numbers behind it. He hid the note then told me to go find it, so i did! It was in the bookshelf mixed amongst the pages of a book, it led to another place with some hidden prizes. We switched back and forth making maps and hiding prizes for about two weeks! We went on popsicle walks around campus and just spent a lot of time getting to know one another. It was always with other people though. He then asked me out on a date! He came and picked me up and we went to a local lake and had some lunch and then just hung out. It was really simple and fun! He even brought me prizes!  He always pursued me but always kept the Lord first! Hanging out with him was so easy and I knew there was something special about him! After hanging out for a month or so I graduated college and then went to stay with a friend in dallas for about 2 weeks at the end of may! We texted ALL OF THE TIME and I missed him like crazy!  On May 27 he drove to dallas (5-6 hrs away) and surprised me! It was wonderful! As soon as I saw him I freaked out and kind of felt like i was going to use the bathroom on myself because i was so nervous! No one has ever pursued me with so much intention! I rode back with him and we had endless conversation and jam time......

If you wanna hear about the ride home, which you do than come back!

ps. we got engaged friday!
