I love Cory's... eyes
How we met...love at first bite
Even though we both went to North High where everyone "knew" everyone, we didn't actually meet until April of my freshman year and Cory's senior year (cradle robber). We were at a high school backyard party and like a true gentleman Cory offered me a beer from his 18 pack. I should have run because I hate drinking but I kindly declined. Instead I pulled a classic play from the "teenage girl’s flirt book"-- stole Cory's hat and added my number to his contacts; girl knows what she wants! As the night went, we got to know each other. I even revealed to Cory what I carry in my purse. Cory's friend Hyatt said he was hungry... I said, "Do you want a cheeseburger?" The boys we're shocked by the question, but more shocked to see me pull a Jack n' the Box cheeseburger from my purse. It must have been love at first bite.
I took her to the beach, I got on one knee and I popped the question, she didn't even cry and she said yes! I had to disguise the proposal because Laura knew it was going to happen, so I came up with the idea of having a graduation party for her since she had just graduated from UC San Diego one week before I popped the question. I then had to come up with a reason to go to PV, dressed up, on a sunny afternoon... so I told her it was for family pictures for my mom's birthday and she bought it... I think. Then on June 23, 2012 we started the hike down the Palos Verdes trails to the tide pools, my brother and I snapped a few shots to make it look legitimate, then I realized the battery on my camera was about to die so I had to kick things into high gear. I waved my brother down, told him to take a few pictures and stood side by side with Laura. He took a few pictures and gave me the sign that he flipped it to record, I turned with Laura's hands in my hands, got down on one knee and the rest is history.
