Here is the thing about my favorite wing-woman. She is about as flirty and saucy as they come, but she doesn't like to walk the walk as much as she talks the talk. Christian's favorite hobby became trying to get her to walk the walk. These are honestly some of my favorite memories in the world. One Sunday evening, Greg and Christian decided we should all play poker. Since we were all broke college students (and Mormon), we couldn't gamble any money. So creative ideas were substituted. Trips to Coldstone, shoulder rub, and "the ward-prayer special". [If you've never been to BYU, ward prayer usually occurs every Sunday evening. The whole ward is invited to come join in prayer, socialize, enjoy treats, a spiritual thought, etc. Also, as in any singles ward, it's an opportunity to scope out the babes, and get the update on who is seeing who.] The ward prayer special came about because Christian's favorite things to lay out on the table always had to do with Katherine doling out affection upon him in public: hand holding for at least five minutes, a hug that lasted longer than five seconds, and, when he was feeling really cheeky, a kiss on the cheek. The ward prayer special included all of the above, in the ultimate combo deal of lovin'. I'm not sure that Katherine ever agreed to any of these, but it was always fun to try and call her bluff with "the ward prayer special."
Another favorite moment was Katherine's birthday surprise.

So what prompted all the Christian-harassing-Katherine memories? Aside from her birthday this week, probably finding these precious love notes from Sunday School while organizing:
Isn't college fun? Sometimes I miss it. Then I remember the school part, and don't as much.
