10 ON TUESDAY | A COURTSHIP EXPLAINED IN 10 STEPS


we're off and running with our third round of 10 on Tuesday. love that.

i have a fun 10 list today and it got me all sorts of inspired to tackle a blogging task i've been meaning to do for ages and ages...but, that's quite literally another story for another day.

today...this is what we're doing...

1 | draft your 10 on Tuesday list. it can be a list about anything. you can explain your list. or you don't have to. it could be your grocery list. your cleaning list. or a list about your top 10 pet peeves. but a list, nonetheless. k? k.

2 | grab the super snazzy button below and insert the HTML code into the HTML section of your blog. this will automatically make that pretty picture a hyperlink so that everyone knows where you're linking up at!

10 Steps to How I Snagged My Farmer

1 | i met my farmer at a golf tournament. his company was apart of an organization for an engineers...and this was an annual tournament they golfed in. i worked for an architecture firm that did work with my farmer's company on occasion. my boss randomly sent me to said golf-outing because a few more golfers were needed. when i saw my farmer i crossed my fingers and toes i'd be in his golfing group. i was.

2 | that very day after the tournament i asked him if he wanted to hang out later that evening. he turned me down. the next week i asked him out again and he agreed. he took me out to dinner and we ordered the same meal.

3 | during our FOUR years of dating my farmer taught me how to rock climb and i taught him how to whitewater kayak.

4 | what i didn't know - my sneaky farmer was dating at least two other girls at the same time as me! i mean...i guess we never said we were exclusive...

5 | that's when it just became a challenge. must. win. farmer. he was a hot ticket around the boise scene.

6 | my farmer is a great dancer and can spin and flip me all over the place. it was a big selling point for me.

7 | when i was dating my farmer i had zero inclination of his farmer aspirations. he was an engineer. since when do engineers become farmers?

8 | as i was trying to win over my farmer - nothing was working. i felt like i was being dragged along. that's when i left the country. i decided i needed to see europe. i got a job as a nanny in prague.

9 | i guess prague was too far away for my farmer. he came to see me after i'd been there for a month. when it was time for him to leave i dropped him at the airport and cried and cried and cried...and cried some more.

10 | after my adventures in europe, i returned home after staying with my sister in boston for three months. it still took my farmer over a year to propose.

but...good things come to those who wait. #lessonlearned

  4. Love this love story. Love lists. Love 10 things. Am pretty much all in here. So glad I found you...might be able to remember how except for the cumulative 29 years' worth of maternal sleep debt clouding my brain. Anyway, thanks for hosting.

  5. You guys are adorable! We never were exactly exclusive either...it's so weird to me that when he finally decided to marry me I knew he was serious and never was worried about him straying.

  29. Someone needs to invent a bib-like something for children's runny noses. We go through more tissues in our house during allergy/cold season than I would like to.
