The story of Kley and I: Chapter Five- Our first months and "I love you"

Now we are far enough into our relationship story I can start to include pictures! :)

Our first few months of dating were really special. Not that the other ones after weren't, just the first few months together are always uniquely special because you are getting to know each other and you have that butterfly feeling that's different then when you've known someone for a long time.

My family came to visit me at college, and we went to the Mall of America together. If you've ever been there, you know there's always something going on in that middle area right outside all the rides. That day a bunch of people were there advertising for the Minnesota Timberwolves. I played a free round of Plinko, and I won two tickets to a game! I was pumped because I thought Kley would love doing something "manly." Here are some pictures from the game. 

This was the very first picture we ever took together after the game, and I am so disappointed to say that I hate it. It's one of the worst pictures I've ever taken. Remember the story from the first time we met with the pink eye turned contact solution allergy? This was still going on at the time (this was early November 2007), and I could hardly open my eyes because the flash hurt so bad and my eyes were beat red. But nonetheless, this is our first picture so I have to share it. 

We made a bet during the game against the teams- whoever's team won got to wipe mud on the other person's face. Clearly, I won. :)

Winter Banquet 2007- Our first dance together

Going to Gadkin together- a Bethel event where the guy asks the girl and it's pretty much a weekend long date with lots of fun activities. (In the spring, they have Nikdag (Gadkin backwards), where the girls ask the guys.)

On a date in February 2008, Kley told me he loved me. We had been dating four months. We were in his dorm room, and were about to watch Road to Perdition, which is one of his favorites. We were on the couch together, and he told me that we didn't have to watch it because he didn't know if I would like it. I told him that we could watch it because he loved it, and then he looked at me and said, "No, I love you." :) It was a truly great moment. (I, of course, told him I loved him too.)

Visiting Como Zoo & Conservatory- one of my favorite places in Minneapolis! (Early spring 2008)
