Our Story
Tennis Class - Introduction

It all started on a brisk January 2010 first day of class, freshman Emily decided to try her hand at tennis and Junior Stephen decided to show off Mr. I played tennis for my high school. Thankfully stephen took pity on me and coached me and played doubles with me ... I passed tennis and we became good friends

First Date

Our first official date we were going to brunch Sunday after a ncsu football Saturday, stephen came and picked me up and we decided on flying biscuit but when we pulled up it was PACKED and we were starving so we grab the next best thing Chick-fil-a. It was delicious, we sat outside on a steamy hot 90 degree august day ... stephen had the sense to sit comfortably in the shade, I however basked in the sun unfortunately when I got up I realized I had sweated through my pants! My cute teal pants were dark blue! He walked behind me on the way to the car I thought to be super gentlemanly but apparently when he tells the story its to hide his laughter! Needless to say we will never forget our first date ... they say laughter is the best medicine :


Are you Patient?

Stephen lived in Maryland somewhere between 4.5 and 7 hours from Raleigh, on the weekend trip where he was going to ask me to be his girlfriend he listened to a podcast about long distance relationships and apparently the having patience was one of the most important parts of the talk. I however did not listen to the pod cast so as he was gearing up to ask all he said was "I was listening to a podcast on long distance dating and I was wondering...are you patient?" I was like "where are you going with this... are you trying to ask me out" he replied "I dunno are you patient" I was super amused and confused at this point so I told him he had to actually ask me. He grinned and ask me "to go steady" I laughed so hard and said yea that sounded super cheesy but I would like to be his girlfriend haha
