8 Random Things Meme

I have been tagged several times to do several different memes. For some reason I just haven't gotten around to doing them. So, this week I am going to catch up on some of the tags I've had. About 100 years ago I was tagged by Susan to do an 8 random things post. Then a little while later I was tagged by La Bellina Mammina to do 8 random things about me and my hubby. A bit more recently Melanie tagged me to do the 8 random things meme. I've decided to combine the two different memes and just do 8 random things about me and my hubby.

1. Rich and I met when I was 17 and he was 20.
2. I was a senior in high school. Rich worked part time at a nearby Subway. I went there for lunch one day. I went back the next day and the day after that too. I'm pretty sure I ate lunch there almost everyday after we met.
3. Rich wouldn't tell me his name and so I made one up for him. I called him Elwood. I'm quite sure that he loved the nickname I made up for him.
4. Several months later we starting dating (and he told me his real name).
5. We dated for 5 years before we finally got married.
6. We went to Disney World for our honeymoon. We've gone back three times since then.
7. We have been married for 7 wonderful years.
8. Every Saturday and Sunday morning Rich makes us a yummy breakfast that we eat together while we read the paper.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but play along if you'd like. Be sure to let me know if you decide to do it so that I can check out your post.

Elwood is a cute name. Grin. Re #8, that's adorable. And that really is the reason why I want the 3 of us in one roof. Hopefully soon...

Love the nickname! Do you still call him that sometimes? Thanks for sharing..I love reading these things and getting to know everyone a bit better.

By the way- the dog really belongs to Gary's brother. But he is in the military so when he goes on temporary duty, we get the dog. She is a great dog, but a lot of work and she keeps waking Ashlyn up during the night -then she has a hard time getting back to sleep. So while I love this dog, I am glad Gary's brother is picking her up tomorrow. I'm sure she will be back to visit us again one day when he goes on leave again.

Kelly worked for a Taco Bell when we first were married at 18 I loved it then but when he quit for a decent job I couldn't go there for years because we had to much of it when he worked there.
