Bride-to-be Lauren Conrad has been dating her fiancé William Tell for two years, but the former reality star knew Tell was the man of her dreams almost instantly.

On her blog, Conrad shares details surrounding her second date and how much fun she and Tell had: "William wanted to go to a bar to grab a drink together, but I had lost my I.D. and just sent my passport away for my trip to Africa for The Little Market (I know, smooth move...). So, since we couldn't go to an actual bar, we went to a hotel lobby bar and played cards all night. We literally closed the place down, just playing cards, talking, and laughing. And nevermind the fact that I lost... I actually kind of liked that William didn't just let me win!"

That was a sure sign to Conrad that Tell could be in it for the long haul. "I knew he was a keeper after that night," she continues. "While it's fun to spice things up with new activities and adventures, I think that a sign of a strong relationship is when you can have fun doing even the simplest activities together. That's still true of William and I to this day."

As for Conrad's upcoming wedding, she's getting in shape by doing outdoor activities. She revealed to People that, "I just like getting out, like going on a hike, going on the kayaks, going for a run on the beach." A true California girl indeed! Conrad is set to tie the knot this fall.
