An April Fools Day Story {With Guest}

Friday, April 1, 2011

Hi there. Well today is April Fools Day so Happy April Fools Day! This day will always hold fond memories for me. And to share why I have my sweet husband here today! Take it away sweetie!

Hi guys, well my crazy idea having wife asked me to share this with you, so here I go. It was April 1, 1999. The day I asked my wife to go out on our first date. I really liked her and I  thought she was very attractive and a great person. But I couldn't get the courage to ask her out. So I asked a coworker of ours (we met at work) to ask her what she thought of me. He told me that she liked me! I was hoping he was telling me the truth. Cause two days later on April 1st I walked up to her and asked her if she would like to go to dinner and a movie with me. To my surprise she said YES!

I was so happy I was floating on a cloud! When I got home and was talking to my mom (I was young then and still lived at home.) she asked me why I was so happy. I told her that I had asked a girl from work to go out on a date and she said YES! My mom started laughing. She was rolling! When I asked her why she was laughing at me she reminded me that it was April Fools Day! The entire night I was wondering if her big YES answer was really a big JOKE!

The next day I walked up to her at work and asked her if we were still on for our date. And yes the answer was still YES, though she looked strangely happy when I confirmed. Come to find out (a couple of months later) she though I was April Fooling her by asking her out on that day!

It has been 12 years since then and the happiest years of my life.

Thank you sweetie for sharing one of our great stories! So you see folks, I will always have great thoughts on this day! As it all turned out for the absolute BEST!!! I got the boy!!!

Just wait till you hear what happened on that first date. Yikes! Maybe I'll share that one day. If my real life BFF was a blogger she would for sure be telling ya in the comments section, cause she thinks it's just as hilarious as being asked out on April Fools Day!

Thanks for reading and have a great April Fools Day!
