Colin taught Ashley how to two-step and the two never really thought anything of it.
(Shout out to groomsman Andrew Averitt who totally could have swooped in and stolen Ashley right out from underneath Colin and didn't because he was so shy around women in 2010.) They kept running into each other the rest of the weekend (one time Colin was carrying a plant around campus and calling it by name--shout out to "Wilhelm") and when Ashley left she told Kristi "tell Colin he's cute!
The teen's remains were then placed into three paint buckets and dumped into a limerock pit.
Ashley agreed and they all met outside of Kristi's dorm and went to Midnight Rodeo to go dancing.The two texted all summer and Colin came up to Tulsa to surprise Ashley on her 19th birthday.Barring one miniscule, one-week breakup in October of that same year (shout out to Colin)..... Being in a long-distance relationship, it wasn't uncommon for Colin and Ashley to spend holidays apart.On a fateful night in late April 2010, Ashley and a friend went to go visit their friend Kristi in Austin who was attending the University of Texas.It was a Thursday night and everyone was ready to go downtown to go two-stepping upon their arrival.
