Wednesday's Walk: When Christa Became Pookey.

It was not a love story I wish that my children would repeat, but I met my husband-to-be in 1993 at church choir.

He was not my type at *all.

I have always been attracted to the skinny, nerdy, computer geek types. You know, thick glasses, nose in a book, but kind of cute underneath??? Yea, Josh was athletic, and a C-student.

He hated science....... need I say more?!?!?!?

Not my type.

There was still something about him that made me think about him, and talk about him to my girlfriends, ALL the time.

In late 1995 we finally realized that we liked each other. (Man, that sounds silly now!!!) We had to tie up some loose ends on some "relationships" that we had been involved in, and on Valentine's Day 1996 it became official.

Josh brought me roses, and I had the stomach flu.

He "asked me out" (LOL), I accepted, and promptly threw up.

I realized later that Josh wore contact lenses. He was half geek. :)

Waiting much too long to get married, we finally said our vows in 2002.



My 11 month old is dancing to your music!


Sweet story! :)


Awe! So cute! Isn't it funny how you knew this man for a while before realizing you liked each other and now you will spend the rest of your life with him?! The hubby and I were the same way!


That's so funny! Don't tell my hubby this, but he wasn't really my type either, and we were friends for awhile before we ever dated! It's funny how things work out...I think that's when you just know that it was part of God's plan and meant to be! :)


You know what they say....Opposites attract Happy memory


This is a cute story. You may have just been friends at first,...but sometimes those are the best guys to fall for in the end. (:>)

Your kids are beautiful by-the-way, and they have the prettiest blue eyes!

Have a great day!


Love the half geek part!


Oh the stomach flu SUCKS! But at least it had a happy ending =)

I just want to say, your kids have the MOST gorgeous blue eyes!! WOW...

Oh Christa, you're too funny! ... Half geek! :) :) :) :)


Man, those were the good old days, weren't they????? I feel like it was no more than a week ago. I remember thinking to myself when you guys got together on V-Day '96 that you two were going to get married...but I never thought that you would wait until 2002. Crazy!

Hope you guys are having a great week!

Heehee....too funny! It's so hilarious to me when two people end up together that totally didn't seem like a match at first. God works in interesting ways though! :)

Thanks for sharing.
