A REAL date~

Well, you all know that I have had a long standing *Date Night* with my Computer; since Rune works on Friday and Saturday nights. Well with the New Year came news that Rune would no longer have to work on Friday nights. !!YAHOO!! So this week we planed to go to the Temple for our date, but the ward trip was canceled so we decided that we would go out and celebrate our 9 years of knowing each other and knew we would have fun doing that~
So always mindful of the budget we remembered we had a gift card to one of our favorite spots in town BJ's, it is a fun place that we really like.
We dropped off the kids at our home teachers place (thanks again Colton's!) and headed out.

The food was great..We both had salads and our main course and the whole dinner cost us $3.00 :)
Then we went to Springfield to the SONIC..we have really wanted to go there but ..with the kids and No time and no money for all of us it has not happened..

SO, Rune and I hopped over and partook of the BEST shake I have had in YEARS! For $2.19 we shared a regular sized HOT FUDGE SHAKE!! YUMMMMMMM! (yes it was that good)
We went to see about a $1.00 movie but nothing sounded good to either of us~ He dropped me off at the church where they were having a Relief Society girls night out game night and he headed over to the Colton's to hang out with his
As I was getting out of the car I asked if he was sad we weren't going to continue our date and he laughed and said "we had a good time, you are a cheap date..go play with your friends" lol that's one more reason I LOVE him. :)

Rune and his meatloaf sandwich.

Me and my Angus Beef Dip sandwich.

A better look at them both~

We ate it all up!

Rune happy knowing we were going to be paying
with a gift card~


One last look at the place and off we went!

Try taking a picture of yourself sucking a shake through a straw..
Not always a good But I think we did ok..
Total amount spent??
$3.00 + $2.19
= $5.19 for one great night!

The First Thing he Said~

The Very First thing Rune said to me was "Tell me all about your mission..."

It is amazing to think that we met 9 years ago this week.

Not everyone knows exactly where they were and what they first said to their spouse, actually most people do not even know the Date that they met.. Because Rune and I met on the internet we are lucky to know lots of those little things.

I did not want the week to go by with out remembering a few things about that day.

NINE things that still amaze me about that day:
1. That night I was studding my lesson for Relief Society the next day.. the lesson was about not judging those who are different from you.. lol I told them all about him & I thought he was ODD...and how I was really judgeing him unfairly.
2. I had my niece Kelsey with me.. we stopped by to check on my Dad's place & use the computer on a whim.
3. Rune asked me for my phone number so that he could call me to get another girls number from me (a common friend ) and I was afraid to give mine.. (what did I think would happen) But felt fine giving out this other girls number with out asking her
4. We had a few people in common from Oregon & Utah to Norway. One was in my student ward & one worked with me in a wholesale flower shop. This still amazes me.
5. Rune told me to "give him some kind of a test to prove he was safe and LDS" Little did he know how many tests there would end up being over the" (I did not think then that he could look up the stuff I asked we were online.)
6. He had been on 2 missions.. and when he was set apart the 2nd time he had a beard..This really stuck with me, who was he an old time prophet?
7. I told him to call me at 7:00 pm my time, not knowing it was 4:00am his time.. And he did it.
8. I thought his name was made
9. After he called that night and we talked for an hour I hung up and said out loud (to myself since I lived by myself) that I was "never going to talk to that dork ever again." LOL
I also said.."Why would some guy from Norway call the US and spend that much money to talk for over an hour to a girl he don't know"...

I am and will be Eternally Grateful to him for calling and then calling again & again..
I love ya babe~

( BTW, That day I had NO IDEA where Norway was and had to look it up!)

P.S. We did NOT MEET on an
LDS singles site or in a
Chat room or with the help of any kind of
Dating site~
Father in Heaven Set us up~
I like to add that every

New Year's Fun

Posted by Picasa
For New Years Eve we hung out with the Brandt's (Our really great friends from the ward)
They were so nice to invite us for dinner and to play and talk and wear their
The kids had a BLAST! The girls all dressed up and gave us a show.

Tre built their girls a climbing wall for Christmas and my 2 brave climbers loved it.. (Katie not so much a brave climber but she still really thought it was cool and tried it out!)

Rune had to work early at the newspaper that night so we were home by 10:30 and he was off to work.
Sam and Katie had a *sleep over* and little Lilly sacked out on the couch. :)
It was a fun New Years Eve!
