Why my Life is Serendipitous

Currently I am watching the end of Serendipity. My house is clean, I have a lack of homework to do and I am relaxing for the first time in quite a while! I turned it on at the part where Sara finds the five dollar bill that had John's name and number on it. Yes, I did indeed get chills, it is a great movie so no judging. This serendipitous moment got me thinking about Mitch and I's story. It had its serendipitous moments as well, which gives me all the more reason to believe that we were made for each other.

It was my senior year (2008) and I was debating on which college I would be attending in August. I had applied to the U, Utah State and of course Weber State. I was accepted to all three and had received scholarships to the U and Weber State around May or so and had pretty much decided on Weber State because of the convenience of living at home while in college and I didn't have many friends headed to USU at the time. About a month after I had thought I made up my mind, I received a scholarship to USU. This pushed me over the edge and I was sold on becoming an Aggie. Serendipitous moment number one.

I was still trying to convince friends to attend there with me, and around April my two bff's (Heidi and Simone) and I heard about USU Aggiette tryouts. We decided to do it together. We all made it to the final cuts, but in the end only Simone made it. This influenced Heidi to try out for the Weber State dance team and I began making living arrangements on Utah State's campus with Simone.

About two weeks after tryouts, I was shopping with Heidi, who had made the Weber State dance team, when she received a phone call from USU's dance coach. She was offered a position on the dance team because someone was kicked off and Heidi was their first alternate. Heidi turned her down because she was all set at Weber State. A few minutes later I was called. I immediately called my previous dance coach and asked what I should do. She was confused as to why I hadn't said yes yet, so I called back and accepted the opportunity. Serendipitous moment number two. Think about it. It took two other fall-throughs for me to be put on the dance team that would lead me to the love of my life. I really doubt Mitch and I would have met if I was not on the dance team. With him on cheer he spent most of his time with them and Simone would not have introduced me to him because I doubt they would have become friends on their own. Therefore, destiny led me to my wonderful husband :).

By destiny leading to my husband it also led me to my major. I was an econ major my freshman year (I know, what was I thinking!?). Mitch persuaded me to take his anatomy class so I could be in his lab (he was a TA). Of course I took the class and here was where I discovered my love for the human body. This was serendipitous moment number three.

Mitch himself was a serendipitous discovery. I had never been attracted to "yell-leaders" nor had I thought that any men existed who were as good to women and as perfect as he was. I had dated yes, and knew many good guys but I had no idea what kind of guy I was looking for until I met Mitch, I guess I had never seen myself with someone as great as him. Anyways I guess that is serendipitous moment number four.

Alright, enough lovin on my man. Point is, I love Mitch and our serendipitous meeting. God has a plan for us and I think Mitch was supposed to be in mine. I love you babe! Hopefully my next blog will be another part of our African adventure, there are many more parts of our trips I have not blogged about
... I'll get on that later. Today I wanted to talk about Mitch :).
