How did you meet your man?
Kris and I attended the same college, Alabama State University. He knew of me but I never really knew of him. One random day he messaged me on Facebook and the rest is history!
Were you looking for love?
I wasn’t looking for love, but I was very open to possibly falling in love. I’m a very hopeful romantic. (Smiles.)
What was your first impression of him?
My first impression of Kris was “he is so fine”!
What was his first impression of you?
That I was amazingly beautiful! That was actually his very first Facebook message to me.
Was it love at first sight?
It was deep, deep like at first sight. I tried not to fall so hard so fast but I knew he was the one very early on.
Most romantic date ever?
I’m not really a girl that likes fancy shmancy dates. Kris and I go on dates every weekend. We love going to the movies and out to eat. So every date we go on is romantic to me because I’m with him.
Best vacation you ever took together?
The best vacation we’ve taken together was last year when we went to New Orleans to see Beyoncé and Jay Z. We had so much fun road tripping from Alabama to New Orleans and hanging out on Bourbon Street!
How did he pop the question?
We (my family and I) all decided to go to a baseball game in my hometown of Birmingham Barons. This was Kris’s first time going and I was so excited for that reason alone. Around the bottom of the third inning they announced on the megatron that they were looking for the sweetheart of the game. Low and behold my face pops up on the screen and I start looking around so confused. Then the mascot came and brought me a dozen roses and then handed Kris the microphone. Kris then got down on bended knee and professed his love for me in front of hundreds of people. The entire stadium was so excited. Then out of nowhere all of my family and friends come running towards us and I was completely shocked. The best surprise was that he flew my best friend from LA to be a part of our special day. It was absolutely perfect!
