It was June 2013. I was working for Skechers USA and they had an annual Store Manager Appreciation Conference in LA.
I was so stoked to go! I had just turned 21 and I was so ready to have a good time! The first night they had a party, Las Vegas Nights! There was a live band, everyone was on the dance floor having such a blast!
That’s when it happened.
My life was forever changed.
Is it actually possible? In all the movies they show two strangers locking eyes with each other from across a crowded room-there's an electric spark, instant attraction and bam they are together forever.
I grabbed my girlfriends and I pull them aside and I say “wow, look how hot this guy is!”
They said make your move Mama and shoved me in his direction.
Heart pounding, sweat dripping.. mouth drying up as I take each step towards HIM.
“So what makes you so special that you get to have gauges?”
What just came out of my mouth? I’m such a bitch
(At Skechers you can’t wear earrings that are bigger than a #2 pencil)
“I just told all of my friends you were the most beautiful girl here.”
Ok. Drop the motha fuckin’ mic.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT IS REAL!
I was speechless.
I have found the man of my dreams I said to myself.
"what??" I said
"i'm not sure how I get away with gauges!"
UM. I know.. you're perfect.
okay, okay I know that's shallow of me but i'm talking to my future husband here!!
ok back on track.
The next day we had a managers meeting and they were doing a giveaway. They were calling out names randomly and giving away iPads! Well low and behold guess who is name gets called up onto stage!
I start saying to all my fellow managers THAT’S HIM!!!
After the managers meeting we met up with each other and jokingly I said “hey, where’s my iPad!?”
he said I was so stoked to win this! I couldn’t wait to give it to you.
Ladies, he gave me the iPad !!
Who does that!
The man of your dreams does that!
Well that was it.
I knew the moment I met him on the dance floor he would be my future husband.
Since the day Tyson and I met, we have talked or been together every single day.
