Do I Look Like the Scandalous Sort? {How I Met My Spouse: a #VlogMom Post}

I’ve recently joined a fabulous group of women across the internet to answer weekly questions with a video response. The group is known as #VlogMom, and we post every Thursday, on our blogs and on YouTube.

This week’s question is from Alissa at Clever Compass, and she wants to know: “How Did You Meet Your Husband/Partner?”

Well, the answer is a bit scandalous (wink, wink) and I’ve heard a variety of responses when people hear about us (from “Were you crazy?” to “Don’t tell my teenage daughter your story, ok?” and “I’m amazed you’ve lasted this long!”).

Take a look for yourself to hear How I Met My Spouse:

Check out the other #VlogMom ladies answering this week’s question:


I’d love to hear your story, too!

Tell me: how did you meet your spouse?


  • So Sweet! I love this! And you even got me choked up at the end.

  • Aaaawwww! I love it!

  • Aw, that is just the sweetest story. I love it. Congrats on 20 years together… that is truly amazing.

    • Thank you, Jen! What’s fun is surprising people with how long we’ve been married – so far, I still get comments that I look “too young” to have a kid in college or be married for that long. Hey, I’ll take those comments as long as I can! 😉

  • Kelli @ Momma Needs a Beer

    Holy cow!! Whirlwind romance… but it was obviously meant to be. Incredibly touching post. Welcome to the VlogMom community, Stacey!!

  • Michelle M

    Oh wow, that really was fast! I love that you found YOUR person when you were 19 and that you’ve almost been with him longer than you’ve been without him. That’s awesome 🙂

    When it’s meant to be… it’s meant to be!

  • Part of me was shocked to hear but the other part of me is not surprised that you eloped.

    I was just thinking about years of single vs. years of marriage the other day. I have 5 years to go until mine is equal. That is so-o sweet that your husband figured that out.

    • Our story is a little shocking, isn’t it? 🙂 Probably the most shocking part is that we managed to really succeed despite hardly even knowing each other when we got married!
