How did you meet your man?
I met Roger 13 years ago at Calvary Christian Center in Sacramento, CA singing in the youth choir. My mom was, and still is, the choir director and Roger was on the praise team.
Your weirdest date ever?
Okay this is humiliating. One time we sat at Denny’s until they mopped the floor around us, then we slept in my car in the parking lot.
Who said the “L word” first?
Honestly I can’t remember. But, being that Roger is the outwardly romantic one and I am the one who holds all emotions in until the absolute last possible moment, we are assuming Roger did.
Most embarrassing date moment ever?
We were having brunch on Easter Sunday and my son peed all over Roger’s suit while he was sleep in his lap… twice!
Sweetest thing he’s ever done for you?
One time I passed out at work and was admitted to the hospital. A few hours later, when he heard the news, he left work and drove six hours to stay with me. At the time we lived in separate cities.
How did he pop the question?
It was one quiet Sunday afternoon in his room while my son Jordan was watching cartoons in the living room. We had just gotten home from church, and Roger dropped me and Jojo off and said he was going to a friend’s house. Little did I know he was out buying a ring.
Fill in the Blank: I think he chose to marry me because________.
There is no else that could be his “boy”, his best friend, wife and mother of his children. No one else could complete his chocolate high.
Fill in the blank: If you’re spying on us on a Friday night, you’ll probably catch us________.
Playing WWE on XBOX 360, eating pizza in the living room and yelling.
Second to his heart, what’s the other sexiest part of his body?
His hands… so strong and soft.
