We met in April of 1999 at CompUSA in Concord where we both worked. We got to talking one day when the store wasn't busy and found we had a lot in common. Nicole called my extension later that day and asked me if I wanted to go out on Friday. We normally went out as a group on Friday bowling so I assumed she was asking if I was going this week. I didn't realize till a few minutes later that she had just asked me out on a date.
Our first date went well, and there were many more. Eventually we decided it was time to get out on our own (as we were driving our respective parents insane) and we got our own place. We shared our 3 bedroom apartment in Bay Point with two other friends from work, one being our good friend Mike (my best man, and a messy, messy roomate). We stayed there a year, and when we could afford it, moved into an apartment in Benicia (without roomates!). We moved around a few times until we decided we had the income (we both had new jobs by then) and the credit to purchase something. We had planned to purchase a townhouse or a condo, but it turned out we ended up with a new house in Fairfield. We moved in on New Years day 2003 (after several weeks of very stressful financing screw ups). We have lived in our home for two years now, and plan to be here for many years more.
