How'd You Meet Your Hunny? {Linky Party!}

Chrissy B @ Buzzing With Ms. B is hosting the cutest linky party - How'd You Meet Your Hunny? How CUTE is this idea?? I was so excited to link up!

I was waiting tables at a restaurant in my hometown during my senior year of college. I came home almost every weekend and sometimes during the week to work. It was great money! I was working on a Tuesday night when a group of guys came in right before closing time.

If you've ever waited tables, you know the feeling that comes when a table comes in late. Yech.

I was doubly aggravated because the Carolina Tarheels were playing the Duke Blue Devils and I wanted to be at home watching the game. (Rah, rah Carolina-lina!)

So, these 3 guys come in an sit down. I recognized one of them from high school. I didn't know the other two guys. We made small talk and I took their order.

I proceeded to get some side work done and watch the game at the bar. Carolina won! To make a yucky night even better, Marvin Gaye came on the radio. Now I could sing AND roll silverware! :-)

The boys paid and started to leave. I noticed one of them hanging back a bit. He walked up and asked for my number. Whaaat?

I don't know you.

You could be a serial killer.

You're being one of "those" customers.


You're cute.

I know your friend Greg.

You probably aren't a serial killer.

You can have my number.

{Side note: I was "on a break" from my Alabama fiance'. Yep. You read that right}

It took 3 weeks, but he finally got me to go out with him.

He picked me up from work one night and took me to a bar. To play pool. I have no idea how to play pool. I was still in a weird place with the fiance-in-Alabama.

Within a month, I had completely fallen for this sweet boy. Fiance' in Alabama was toast.

The sweet boy from the restaurant and I were together for four years before we went our separate ways. We were apart for a year and a half. We both dated other people. Somehow, we never stopped talking.

Fast forward a year and a half. We cautiously start dating again. Within two months, we are head-over-heels-all-over-again.

We date for another two years. Move in together. Buy a house.

Get married.

Live happily ever after.

Our story isn't traditional, but it's ours. I do love that sweet boy.

What's more, I heard my sweet boy tell our story this weekend. I learned something new. They weren't even planning on coming into my restaurant that night. They had gone to a Buffalo's around the corner to eat, but the bartender kept them waiting for 20 minutes so they got up and left.

Thank you, crappy bartender! You are the reason  I met that sweet boy!

This was so fun! Go link up! I want to read your stories too!


  1. LOL! That's a great story! I love it when the fiancee is toast. That's so funny. (Because it worked out for you. If not, it would be sad lol)
    Thanks for linking up and sharing your story!

    1. Yahooo!! A fellow Tarheel! :) Born and bred a Tarheel. Did you just want to kill a referee last week??

  3. What a sweet story! Isn't it amazing how fate steps in and your perfect "hunny" lands in your lap when you least expect it?

    1. It is! There are so many reasons we shouldn't have met... but I'm so glad we did!! :-)

  4. I love your story too! Aren't GA boys the best?? haha.

    I'm glad to see someone else has broken up and gotten back together. My boy and I have broken up several times but we always end up back together. haha. Maybe there is hope for us yet! :)
