Say a man and a woman both need something to sleep in and both go to the same men's pajama department. The man says to the salesman, "I just need bottoms," and the woman says, "I just need a top." They look at each other and that's the 'meet cute.'

There is a reason this blog is named Sweetly Complicated I truly can not do anything simply. I get the pleasure of the majority of life being done the "complicated" way... and honestly I'm ok with that. How I ended up dating my wonderful boyfriend Reese is just as complicated as the rest of my life.
In honor of today being our 2 year anniversary I am going to tell you the story of our cute meet.
I walked into the room with typical "I dont know anyone in there" caution that comes with the first day of a new semester. My eyes swept the rows and finally landed on a familiar face. A sigh of relief left my body as I plopped down next to her. Technically, we had met our freshman year in a service organization we were both a part of. Jana, little did I know would have a hand in changing the course of my life.
The routine started-- go to class, laugh at our CRAZY professor, chit-chat and walk back to our cars. The 7th day of class while walking to our cars she turned and proclaimed, "I'm having a surprise birthday party and you will be there." Typical lovable Jana.
Facebook message were exchanged and party plans were made. I vaguely remember someone mentioning something about some of Jana's "Shreveport" friends coming, but didn't think much of it.
|Jana and I at her 21st birthday!|
Jana's 21st birthday party finally arrived. I washed, straightened AND styled my hair, big deal BIG DEAL. Spent more than 56 seconds on my make-up, and ventured into the side of my closet that contained actually clothing rather than the nike shorts I had been living in (did I mention that this was a big deal?). I distinctly remember thinking that for some reason this night was going to be special, truly not know what was awaiting me in a matter of hours.
I walked in the house and almost immediately noticed two boys standing in the kitchen. I noticed but didn't really give a second though to until I needed a drink...
Stay tuned fir how a margarita changed my life...
