Engagement Encounter: First Session

Monday, February 15, 2010

First, I want to apologize for being MIA to the blogging world. Life has been a little hectic for us lately.

Any who, Ramon and I had our first Encounters of the Engaged night. Ramon and I are Catholic and are getting married in a church. One of the church requirements are that we either go on a religious couples retreat {just for a weekend} or that we take a 6 week class with other engaged couples. With the cost difference in effect, we decided to venture out in the 6 week course world.

Last Wednesday was or first session.

Fist things first... the compatibility test. HA!

They made of the couples split up and go in different parts of the house to take the "Focus Test". This test is a fill in the bubble type test consisting of 187 personal questions. Some of the questions I would have preferred to leave blank, but the instructor reminded me twice that i had to chose one :/ So I did {yikes}

Ramon was being a bad Catholic boy and interrupting his test time to capture a few snap shots of me taking my test.

Our instructors {John and Jan} were so welcoming. They made homemade cookies for us to nibble on.

The glass water pitcher was cutely displayed with matching tumblers.

and they also provided us with a little assortment of fresh fruit. {pls don't mind the browning bananas. Jan instructed us not to touch those because she had plans on making banana bread with. lol}

After the test, all the couples regrouped and did a short introduction about us as a couple. One couple met on e-harmony another met at work. When it was our turn to introduce ourselves, I started off by saying we met in the 4th grade. They all laughed. {{whatever, I thought it was cute. lol}} So then I proceeded with "We HAVE NOT BEEN TOGETHER SINCE THE 4TH GRADE, we just met in the 4th grade". All of a sudden we heard a sigh of relief. {HA! Again, whatever} And then I smacked them with "we are high school sweethearts and have been together since my junior year and his senior year. Approximately 8 1/2 years of good lovin'. They seemed so shocked to hear our long history together. I'm guessing it's because we are the youngest in the class with the most time under our belts {but for the third time, whatever!}

After the introductions we all had the chance to mingle with one another. This was an exercise to get us all comfortable with one another before we start digging up the real deets within the next 5 upcoming weeks. This, by far, was my fav part of the night. Just call me your social butterfly =)

To say the least, I love our instructors. I love our fellow engaged couples. I can't wait to see where this class will take us mentally, physically and knowingly.
