Dave and I the day we left Ontario for Edmonton

After awhile I got tired of not having a boyfriend and decided that Nick, off the original CSI, was my boyfriend. It became a huge running joke and people were very supportive of the "long distance aspect" of our relationship. Ha ha ha! During May 2005, Nick was featured in an episode called "Grave Danger," and following that episode whenever Nick would have flashbacks, I would jokingly say, "Don't worry sweetie, I'll just scoop you up and hold you."
Fast forward about a year and Dave and I were housemates and becoming attracted to each other. We talked about the possibility of a relationship (A LOT!!!) and one of the first things that made Dave notice me in that way led back to those CSI nights. When I would talk about scooping Nick up, Dave says he thought, "I wouldn't mind her scooping me up."
So then "scooping up" became an inside joke for us. So when we talked about starting a blog, because we were moving halfway across the country, and trying to think of a name, "Here's The Scoop" seemed perfect because of its double meaning. We were keeping people informed by giving them the scoop, and it was meaningful for us too!

I love how young we all look and check out the
phone on the wall!
And now our blog is not only a scrapbook of our lives, but it's also introduced me to a lot of really cool people. So seven years on, I am really thankful that, on this day in June 2007, Dave and I decided to "start a blog."
*Thanks to Tim for digging up all these old pictures for me.
