Kendric and I met at San Jose Bar & Grill. I was there with two girlfriends, Stephanie and Rosanna (Rosanna was my maid of honor). I was watching the Lakers - Kings game and Rosanna was talking to Kendric. She said to him, "I see you looking at my friend, why don't you go talk to her?" He said to her, "Well, she's not even looking at me."
At that moment, Kendric's old roommate came up to me and we started talking. Rosanna then kicked Kendric and said, "Don't let your friend talk to her! I know she would be interested in you." Kendric finally came up to me and we hit it off right away.
After a year and a half of dating, Kendric asked me to move in with him. We got a little Chihuahua named Lumps, and have been living together ever since.
On October 17,2006, Kendric said he wanted to cook us a nice dinner. He made my favorite — spaghetti — and said that he bought me something. He told me to close my eyes and when I opened them, he was on one knee and said "I love you, will you be my wife?" I said yes, of course, and we both cried.
One of the most nerve-wracking moments of our wedding turned out to be one of the most memorable. I don't have a good relationship with my father, so months before the wedding I was wracking my brain to decide whether or not I wanted to "give" myself away or ask someone else to walk me down the aisle.
Ultimately, I decided that the only man I needed in my life was my husband so it turned out to be symbolic that I walked down alone. During our vows, I said to him "I wasn't afraid to walk down the aisle alone today because I knew that I was walking towards the only man I'll ever need." Both of us, along with our guests, got a little choked up at that moment. It was beautiful though.
Another cute part of the wedding was when I surprised Kendric with a hula dance. I danced the traditional hula to the "Hawaiian Wedding Song" by Don Ho. I had actually been taking hula lessons twice a week for two months but told him that I was taking personal training at the gym. I guess some little white lies turn out OK. My husband was very surprised and it was a nice treat for his family too, since they're all from upstate New York and have never seen a hula performed live.
