How I Met Your Blogger with C.R.A.F.T.

Hi friends!! Welcome to our first day of a fun Valentine’s Day Series: How I Met Your Blogger!! I’ve asked some ROCK STAR bloggers to share with us how they met their Valentine, how they proposed, what they love to do together, and more! This series will run until February 15th here on Free Stylin’!




First up: my cute, in-real-life friend, Jamie, from C.R.A.F.T. Jamie is so much fun – we got to be roommates at Haven! And she has such a romantic story. (I LOVE everything about her wedding!!) Check it out!





1. How long have you been together? How did you two meet?

Andy and I actually went to high school together in College Station, TX! He’s older and always had a girlfriend, so we were not friends in high school. In high school, I was on the gymnastics team with 2 of his best friends. We officially met while he was living with those 2 guys in college. They would come to a bar where I worked for pint night on Thursdays. We hung out in a big group for a few years before we even started dating. We were “exclusive” as of 1/11/2006. That’s 7 years!  We got married on 2/22/2012, almost a year ago!


2. How did he (or you!) propose?

He moved to FL in August 2012 knowing I was not going to move with him if we were not engaged. He was sad and lonely in Florida, so he flew back within the month to ask me to marry him! NOT. ha! That’s what I was wishing would happen every day until he finally asked me in October 2012 :)  The true story is that he did ask for my hand in marriage in August, before he moved, but between getting the ring made, another friend’s wedding, and a plane ticket back to Austin, the proposal did not happen until October 2012. Funny story, he was going to ask me to marry him on the South 1st bridge in Austin, but it smelled like bat poop… so he quickly changed locations to the Palmer Event Center!


3. What was your wedding like? Any funny, special, or crazy stories about your big day?

Wedding was SUPER simple. We had 4 people in our living room on 2-22-2012, which was a Wednesday evening! It was our happy day :) Lots more about our wedding HERE.


4. What do you love to do together?

We love being outside! In Florida, we went to the beach all the time. In Austin, we love to mountain bike at Walden Creek, run/walk around Town Lake, hike the Green belt, and grill out with friends! We also both love to travel!


5. What’s your favorite thing about him? What’s his favorite thing about you?

Favorite? Hmmm… he’s pretty wonderful… if I do say so myself :) He’s kind, gentle, passionate, and very thoughtful. One of things I love most about Andy is that he is a GREAT listener and communicator in general.  I asked Andy  what is favorite things about me is, he emailed me a very sweet answer, “One of the things I love most about Jamie is her beautiful smile. Her pretty face radiates happiness that shines in a room like warm afternoon window. It’s as if her smile is connected directly to her heart so one can see her beauty from inside out with just a glimpse. “  He also added a disclaimer (that was not as sweet), “But buyer beware because a contagious smile is not the only expression her face is capable of creating and her other expressions are equally as powerful but with a much different result.”


Oh my gosh, so cute, right? I love what Andy said about Jamie, too! :) What a sweet couple! Thanks, Jamie and Andy!
