How We Met

Since I decided I wanted to start a blog, I have been looking forward to writing mine and Cody's love story. I want to make sure we remember every detail. But it's also a mildly unique story, so it might be worth publishing on the internet.

Where: Las Vegas, Nevada

Whenever we tell people that we met in Las Vegas, their first question is if one of us is from there. (Actually sometimes they also ask some off color questions about how scandalous our meeting must have been, but anyway) Nope, we're both from Minnesota and happened to be in Las Vegas at the same time. Cody was on his annual trip with a group of guys. They were staying at New York New York and were spending their weekend trying out various casinos along the strip.

I was on my first trip to Vegas with some girls and we were staying at the Mirage, toward the other end of the strip. We were spending a good amount of time at the pool and going to different shows.

When: Friday October 19, 2012

On our second night in Vegas, the girls and I went to a Cirque du Soleil show at New York New York. Afterward we needed to kill some time before we headed to Tryst at the Wynn.

One of my friends spotted and Irish pub and we decided to go in. It was extremely crowded and after we managed to get a drink at the bar, we wedged ourselves near a booth to circle up and chat.

Not long after that, a group of guys were ushered in to be seated at the nearby booth they had reserved for dinner. I noticed one guy immediately (Cody), as well as the fact that he was wearing a MN Twins hat. I pointed this out to my friends. They jumped at asking where they were from. Ok, so full disclosure, I had a boyfriend at the time. Things weren't going all that smoothly with him. But still, I hung back from chatting up the guys, especially Cody.

My friend and Cody's roommate hit it off immediately. We ended up meeting up with them the next night as well. They were really into each other. But she actually lived in Milwaukee and I thought we would probably never see them once we got back to Minnesota because what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right?
