Blast from the past

A friend of ours is moving back to Winnipeg next week and he brought over a blast from my past:

This is a bar that I used to frequent on Thursday nights when I was young. He happened to have this shirt from a buddy who used to work there. He brought it over after he remembered that I met Chris there. Its kind of a funny story actually. I was with a girlfriend at Bullwinkle's for Ladies Nite one Thursday night when dh Chris walked by. As he passed me I leaned over to my girlfriend and said "I'd like one of those please?!" and she replied by saying she would bring him over cuz she knew him. We started dating shortly thereafter. I ended up dumping him a month later when he said "I want to marry you someday." I mean, I was 21 and in NO WAY ready to get married. But 4 years later we met up again and 11 years after that, here we are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in September and 2 kids later. Funny to look back at what we were like at that age. I can't wait to scrapbook this picture - brings back alot of old memories!
