The Story of Us: The Meet Cue {Part 1}

I figured today would be a good day to start writing the first installment of our story.

So here we go :)
One of my best friends Hayley Hucks is from Rocklin, CA {which is up north near Sacramento}, and she happened to be my roommate for the 2010-2011 school year. 
Hayley's best friend from back home, Marissa Mortimer, decided to have a grand adventure, so she decided to move from California to live with us in Provo, Utah. 

Ryan, happened to be working in Rocklin, CA the summer of 2010 and he became best friends with Marissa Mortimer. When he had finished his summer job in October of 2010, he called up Marissa and asked if she knew of a guy apartment/house that had open rooms for him.

She directed him to the house down the street, and that's where he moved into. 
The Nibley House they called it. 
I had heard some tid-bits about Ryan before I even had met him:

A. He did summer sales {in my book, he seemed like a complete tool right off the bat.}
B. He dates a lot {I thought he was a player. Again, tool.}
C. He loved to crack jokes and be the center of attention {Cocky.}
{Keep in mind these were my totally stereotypical thoughts. Not how he is at all! Ok, the cocky thing is partly why I fell in love with him. But that is beside the point.}

So suffice it to say, I did not think too highly of this Ryan guy when I first heard about him.

On October 26, 2010.
 I went running into my apartment after class to grab my purse, put on some make-up, and brush out my rat-nest of a hair-do cause I was rushing back out to go on a date. 
When...I was introduced to Ryan. 
Marissa said: "Hey Bri! This is the guy Ryan that I was telling you about."
So. Being the skunk that I am, I replied with:
"Ohhhh so YOU'RE the infamous Ryan Rios I've been hearing about. Well, nice to meet you I gotta bounce."

Anndddd that was it. 
Dress: Express. Sweater: Buckle. Tights: Kohls. Boots: Rocket Dog. Scarf, Belt: Target (on sale!).

I suppose I made a decent impression, or looked especially foxy that night because this is what went down later that same night.

Ryan and Marissa were heading out for food when Ryan said:
"Hey Marissa. Your friend Bri? I WILL date her."
Marissa: "If you are gonna date my roommate, you better do it right."

Ryan took this to heart and started to devise his plan to convince me to marry him....
He started to figure out his next game move...which I will leave for the next installment :)

Happy almost weekend!
<3 Bri
