How We Met: I’d have to say that the first time I was exposed to the hotness that is my fiancé Jake was when my friend Alex was showing me his Facebook album of photobombs he made. I remember thinking that he was literally the hottest human being I’d ever seen, even when he was making ridiculous faces. But I didn’t think anything else of it because she said he was 27 (so old) so I knew I’d never meet him.
A couple months after that, I went over to her house for a BBQ she was having, and we were introduced. It was fleeting and I had forgotten all about the Facebook album by then already. I had met a lot of people that day so we didn’t talk much, and we were both hanging out with different people so we didn’t get to hang out much that day.
It wasn’t until a couple weeks after that when I was on break with my best friend Melissa at the OC Fair (where I work every summer at the Cinnamon Roll Stand), that we bumped into each other again. He was hanging out with Alex and Dillon, who were both of our mutual friends. Melissa recognized Dillon so we went and said hello and told them to come and get a Cinnamon Roll in an hour when we were working again. I had forgotten Jake’s name, but still thought he was the most attractive human being that had ever graced this earth. As we were walking away, I remember turning to my best friend and saying “Seriously, how freaking hot is that guy”. Safe to say, I was pretty obsessed from the start…sorry not sorry about it. An hour later, on the dot, they all came and got some cinnamon rolls. Jake was overly enthusiastic about the cinnamon rolls…like he was freaking out saying that it was the best thing he has ever tasted, which we get a lot anyway, but I was like “Wow, this guy really likes ‘em!!!”. Anyway, that night I texted Alex and was like “Alex, can I please marry Jacob” as a total joke since I was 18 and I never thought it a million years that he’d be interested in me, to which she responded “Get in line sista!!!” Obviously Jake is a hot commodity to the world, so I had to act quickly! I asked Alex for his number and after we talked for a while, we hung out for the first time, and since then we have seen each other every single day to follow.
how they asked: We were exploring the Soka University Campus and Jake wanted to take a picture by the fountain. I had no idea what was going on, the video pretty much says it all!
