Day Two and a Half

I'm resuming blogging about our Oklahoma trip now. It's a little late, especially considering that we just got back from another trip (this one to Kansas City).

On our way back to Tulsa after visiting the ranch, we decided to stop at Classic 50's for a beverage or two. I used to go to Classic 50's almost every day for a slush during happy hour. Once I started dating Carl, I would take him along. It was always a special place for us.

Most of you know that before I left on my mission, this guy from AZ wanted me to stay home and marry him. I wasn't going to stay home but he did get me thinking about what I wanted for myself and I even wrote Carl a "Dear John" letter. In my defense, I wrote one to the AZ guy at the same time. But, a couple of weeks later I wrote an apology to Carl and he "took back" the fact that I had written that letter. I didn't write back to AZ guy.

*I promise this story has a point and it has something to do with Classic 50's*

I encouraged Carl to date when he got home from his mission. I didn't encourage him to get serious about anyone else. But, he kind of did. He didn't have the guts to tell me about this relationship himself so my mom and my best friend had to write to me to tell me. I came home six months later and Carl knew he was in big trouble! I had pretty much figured that I was going to find some other guy and then let every girl we knew know what a two-timer Carl was and then he'd never get any more dates. I think you all can figure out that my plan didn't work. Instead, I decided to break up his other relationship. It wasn't hard. He couldn't resist me. It's true. ;) When we got back together, we resumed our trips to Classic 50's. I asked him if he ever took HER there.

He said, "No way. This place is sacred." Good answer! We got engaged there just a few weeks later. Yep, he proposed to me at a drive-in restaurant and I couldn't have been more pleased.

This guy has been working there for over 10 years, I'm sure. He brought us our engagement slushes and he served us again last week.


  1. Aww! That's a sweet story. As you know, I do remember most of that. I think I still owe AZ boy $10. Oh well...

    When I got back to OK, I couldn't wait to intorduce myself to Carl. But, the first time I saw him, he was with her and I thought it would be...well...AWKWARD! I'm glad things worked out the way they did. His poor judgement notwithstanding, Carl is still one of my favorite "friend's husbands." (Anne, I'm sure you will be stunned to learn that Chris never made that list.)

    That's romantic. Thanks for the smile. I love the story about you scaring off Carl's fling. Haha. Carl's such a rascal! Way to take charge of the situation.


  3. That's so sweet! They like it when we take charge. I had to chase Jason pretty hard, and he liked it!

  4. Oh that is tender!!! Ya know, I chased mine too. I gues we all chase the ones we love! Great Story!!! The kids will love this one when they are older.

  5. Love it!!!!! You guys are so cute! I've heard this story before and I think it was in an empty house over pizza and some awesome garlic cheese bread. Don't forget the Diet Pepsi!

    When are you coming out here again??? I miss my Christy!

    Kellie it's time to tell the story about when Gary proposed.
