No floundering for Love Story Contest winners!

Meet the winner of the annual Wilson County News Love Story Contest. Readers were invited to share the story of their romance for a chance to win a romantic getaway. The entry deadline was May 31. This story, from Christi Yosko and Bradley Olinick, won the hearts of our judging panel. The two win a two-night stay in the Emily Morgan Hotel in downtown San Antonio.

Six and a half years ago in the Kosciusko Dance Hall, Bradley Olinick and I were both there for a dance. I didn’t really know him, but for some reason that night, he noticed me and decided to talk about floundering, because he had seen me floundering with my dad sometime prior to that.

As the night went on, we danced numerous times and said our goodbyes. However, a few weeks later, we were both at a wedding when our eyes caught again. Once again in Kosciusko Hall, we danced the night away! From that point on, it was stay-up-late, talk-on-the-phone kind of nights. I thought nothing much of it, until he asked me out one night.

“Ummm, I don’t know, can I call you back?” were my exact words. I hung up with him, picked up the phone and called my sister and asked, “Hey, what do you know about Bradley Olinick? He just asked me out and I am not sure what to do.” Her response was, “Get off the phone with me, call him back, and tell him yes!” So I did, and this is where our story began.

Little did I know that six years later, we would be engaged. I had always dreamed of it and was excited but had no clue it was coming.

It was Bradley’s birthday weekend, October 2012, and he wanted to go fishing with some of his friends down in Corpus Christi; of course, I was all for it and even offered to get the rooms. The weekend began with the drive down to Corpus, where I was randomly sending him pictures of rings I thought were nice, not knowing he had one with him. We got settled into our hotel, and made sure everything was ready for fishing the next morning.

Five a.m. came the next morning and I was extremely awake and excited, and I am not a morning person. (Bradley thought I knew something.) We went out fishing, had a great time, and caught a few trout. But by 2 p.m., we were all pretty hungry, so we decided to swing by Doc’s to grab a bite to eat. As we neared, Bradley asked me to drop the trolling motor and steer into Doc’s, so of course I did.

As I was steering, he kept telling me, “Babe, make sure you are looking at Doc’s and are going in the right direction.”

My thought was “Well, duh.”

Then all of a sudden, I saw a sign that said, “Christi, will you marry me?”

“Awwww, someone just got engaged,” was my first thought. Then, “Oh, how cool, she spells her name like me.”

Then it hit me.

“Oh my gosh! Is this really happening?”

Then I felt a tap on my back. When I turned around, I saw Bradley there on one knee with a ring and all I could say was, “Are you serious? Is this for real?” and cry.

As soon as we stood up and I finally caught my breath to say yes, I heard a roar of cheers coming from somewhere. It was then I looked over and saw all our family and close friends waiting for us on the balcony of Doc’s, ready to celebrate with us!

Needless to say, that weekend we caught the catch of our lives.

Second place in the Wilson County News Love Story Contest goes to Shawn
and Mandy Kelley; they receive a $50 gift certificate to Rita’s On the River in San Antonio.
