Wedding Wednesday: How it All Began

I saw this neat (who says that?!-- I do...) idea from a blog I follow - The Married Couple - called Wedding Wednesday. Every Wednesday you post about your wedding on one of these different topics:

1. how it all began: how you met, first date, first kiss, how long did you date? first picture together.....etc.
2. when you knew he was the one: self explanatory.. but how and when did you know?
3. proposal: how it happened, how long were you engaged for? was it a total surprise?  pictures of that... etc.
4. the ring:  tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!
5. engagement/bridal pictures: let's see em!
6. the colors: show some of the flower and colors you used
7. the dress: was it what you always imagined? did you have it made for you? white or ivory?
8. the little accessories: you know, veil? shoes? jewelry? what did your bridesmaids wear?
9. the reception: where was it at? show us some pictures! what day did you get married?
10. the cake/food: i love food. so tell me about what you had at your wedding!
11. your song and/or the first song you danced to at your wedding: share a music video or lyrics if you can!
12. favorite part of the day and least favorite part of the day: can be anything.
13. honeymoon: where did you go? was it good?  ;) haha...jk.
14. thoughts on marriage: what is the easiest/hardest part? if you could change anything, what would it be?
15. first place that you lived together: pics if you have them!
16. kids: do you have any yet? if not, when do you plan on it? how many do you want? any tips on good/bad birth control?
17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

I figure I'd like to participate in this cute, silly thing to help me keep track of things, like the wedding and whatnot seeing how I haven't been able to do much tracking since we moved to Ecuador right after the wedding, and now to South Korea shortly after that. So here it goes.

Here's the shortened & condensed version...

How it All Began:
Jason and I met through my best friend. We started off as friends at first. My best friend and I would hang out with him and his friends quite often. Then my best friend moved out of state to go to university, but I still hung out with Jason and his friends.

At a Halloween party. 2005. Shortly after this, we started to hang out more one-on-one. =)

The first time I took him dirtbiking with my family. Thanksgiving weekend. 2005.

Towards the end of 2005, we started to hang out more, and just the two of us. Feelings were starting to develop, but I'll admit- I was trying to fight them (and so was he) because we both had gone through a break up just months before. We would go out to dinner, go around the city taking pictures, go to shows, just innocent fun.

Then one night, he had a show where he was filling in for a band member in a local band (he plays guitar). I was running a little late, but as I made my way through the crowd and up towards the front, we made eye contact and he smiled... and for some reason, I thought "Yeah, I really like him. Don't fake the funk."  And from then on, I just let my guard down and so did he. We shared our first kiss shortly after that. Then at a new year's eve party at his house that same year, he "officially" asked me to be his girlfriend.
Our first photo together after being "official". 2006.

... and THAT, my friends, is how it all began...
