Our first night together as a couple!

Tonight was a very special night for Josh and I. Tonight was the first night we had seen each other since the day before we started courting! Tonight is also when both sets of parents got together to discuss some things about the courtship. These pics are out of order...so, the ones on top are supposed to be last and the last first! We went out to eat first and the Josh came over to the house. He decided to surprise me with a gift! He gave me a gold cross necklace that has a silver heart around it and what looks like a diamond in the middle of the cross...it is BEAUTIFUL! I love it!!! He is just so sweet!!! I still can't thank God enough for giving me such a wonderful man!!!

Oh NO!!!!!!!!!!! The picture of your dad showing the salt and pepper shakers..................don't tell me your dad is doing things like that already!!! LOL!!!
Glad you had a great time together!
BTW...........I noticed that you didn't sit across from him while you ate..........I reckon that stage is still up the road a bit.....you know, the stage when you don't care just how you look while eating......LOL!!!!!

Courtney,

I would have been just as content sitting across from him, as a matter of fact I would have preferred that...but my dad wanted to face us both while he talked to us. :o)
And YES, he is already doing stuff like that!!! He has already started picking on me with him around...so...this may be a LONG road!! LOL!!!!

Kristina said...

I would have preferred it because I would be able to look at him without craning my neck! LOL I forgot to add that!

Congratulations. I would love to hear more about the plan as such for your courtship - ie some of the rules or guidelines you have etc. Does he live in the same city? Also - I am confused as to how courtship is different to being engaged? I am assuming you will have chaperones when you are together - will Ronnie and Jessica be allowed to be chaperones?

Hey Hon!

I love your blog spot! I am so excited about all the Lord is doing for you and Josh! You are such a blessing to Robert and I! You are everything we prayed for! It is so amazing to see all you two have in common! I believe God is going to use your testimonies about your courtship to teach and encourage other young people! We love you so much!

Love ya!
