Show us Your Life...How I Met My Hubby

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

Picture it, Memphis, 2007, (I'm hearing this in Sophia's voice from the Golden Girls)....anywho, I had just broken up with my longterm boyfriend for like, the 19th time. It was my birthday and I had received a dozen roses at work from a "secret admirer" who I knew to be a guy friend that was trying to be more than a friend. A woman that worked downstairs at my office, came by and noted "Oh, your boyfriend is so sweet." Well, I had to correct her. Actually from a secret admirer, yada, yada, yada. I guess all she heard was I was single again. She states that I would be perfect for her son's best friend (here we go)...that works here....Ok, first, if he works here and I don't know who he is, can't be very attractive. Harsh? Yes. True? Yes.

Well she says his name and we go about our business. Of course, at this point I have to check out who I would be "perfect" for. I "casually" walk by his office (I had investigated where he sat). What??? Who is this guy?? He seems cute. I couldn't get a GOOD look but from what I saw, wowsers. Found out that he had just transferred back here from St. Louis.

Fast forward a week, cute mystery guy calls and asks me out for a happy hour. I immediately call Melody and inform her we were going to a happy hour! Long story, REALLY abbreviated, we actually were both beginning to date other people at the time so nothing really ever came of it. Then the other relationships fizzed out and here we are....married 8 months!

I love you Tom!

Just Me and My Life

Me and my life's favorite fives is on favorite five restaurants this week....since I already did a post on most of my local favorites I decided to devote this one to purely chain restaurants. These are in no particular order, basically just what popped in my head first!

First, who doesn't love some "boc boc" as my niece calls it?? I love the chicken nuggets. When we are at a party with the chicken nugget tray, I swear I don't leave the vicinity!

Second, we all know my ALL TIME favorite restaurant is On the Border!! I could literally drink their sour cream sauce. Too much information?? :) I always get the chicken burrito, ALWAYS.

Third, I'm going to have to go with Lenny's...this may only be in the South right now but their ingredients really are soo fresh. I always get either a #5, club or a chicken philly.

Fourth, I'm going to go with an oldie but a goodie. Chili's! I love their queso and their chicken tacos. Yum, yum!

Finally, let's step out of the comfortable price range and go with Ruth Chris. Seriously, who doesn't love a Ruth Chris steak?
