Digital Love Story

Valentine's day is tomorrow.. So I was gonna share our love story.

My hubby & I are both geeks, raised by geeks.  so we're 2nd Gen geeks :P   GEEK 2.0!! :D
Anyway.. off track.

I joined a group on Facebook that my hubby was the Admin for.  He sent out a mass message to all the members. I didn't know it was to all the members, I thought he was flirting with me!  :P  So.. I flirted back!  Which peeked his interest.  So, flirted back.  and back & forth it went.  A few days later we decided to meet.  I had him meet me at my work,  I worked in a mall at the time. All the guys & security guards knew I was meeting someone from online, in case he was some sort of freak.. :P
He came & hung out with me for a while & after we went to a local restaurant (where we still go for special occasions :D) And that's how it began.
Around our first V'day hubby planned a wonderful proposal.  He tried to get 4 doz of my fav flowers(camellias),  Hang them from the ceiling, each with a little note on them.. the last one being the proposal.. but it kept messing up :P
1st time.. the flowers didn't come in or the ring wasn't ready.. one or the other..
2nd time he tried to propose, my friend was supposed to take me shopping to get me out of the house so he could set everything up.  She bailed..  so he couldn't set up.
3rd time we had a weekly meal with a neighbor & lots of friends, they all knew what was going on and were supposed to distract me.  well... one of my friends who I hadn't seen in YEARS was in town.. so I invited her over.. so that messed up the plan..
4th time.. I woke up & he wasn't there.. I walked into the living room & he was doing something... we'll i'm blind as a bat.  So I couldn't see what was going on. He told me to go back to sleep.  So I did.  the next morning I wake up & get on Facebook (which showed me as SINGLE!!!, FB almost knew before me, so he had to change it), because I knew something was up..  He is laying there pretending he's asleep.  He "wakes up" and convences me to get breakfast..  so I walk in the living room & 3 dozen Carnations (he couldn't remember my fav.. he did remember they started with a C!) were hanging from the ceailing.  Red, pink & Green! :D   1 doz was in a vase.  I didn't know if it was my V'day gift or if he was proposing.. so I went back and hugged him. He rolled me on my back & stuck a little box on my chest and opened it.
I looked at the box.. looked at him... looked at the box... looked back at him.. "um.. your supposed to say something..."  "Ok, Marry me, woman"..  *sigh*  ok.

We were marred exactly 1 year after the first Facebook message, our first child, a son, is due in June.  We announced our engagement, wedding (we even sent out invites), and pregnancy all on Facebook.
