If you’re friends with me on Facebook or Twitter or just in my daily life then you may know that yesterday was a pretty awesome day for me. I had a meeting that was cancelled and rescheduled for Monday afternoon so I spent the afternoon with Cal, and we had a lovely day. We visited with my friend, Jodi, before heading to lunch where I’m happy to say that I stayed on track! (Jodi! We have to take a picture together soon. Just saying!)
Just before lunch and after a phone call with my lovely friend, Leslie McClure, (I want to be like her when I grow up) Cal gave me a gigantic, beautiful bouquet of lilies and roses and asked me to be his girlfriend. Actually, he asked it on his make shift card (which I adored, by the way) first, and you can guess what I said, right? I said yes. =) So it’s official…I have a boyfriend, and I’m pretty giddy about it. =) I knew he’d ask at some point, but I didn’t know when. And I didn’t expect it today!
I’ve talked about him on my blog a few times, but I think I’m ready to share a little more. First, he’s much younger than I am which you can clearly see in the photo! Ha…But he’s met several members of my family and a few close friends, and they all think he’s brilliant- I agree. He’s in law school, and he’s 6’2″. (You know I like that, right? ha…) And if you know me, you also know that I’m attracted to guys who are extraordinarily intelligent, and he fits the bill there too. In an earlier post, I mentioned that he knows the origin of odd produce (I find that attractive too, right KeepItUpDavid?) and all kinds of things…He’s like my own, personal Google.
He cooks and uses good grammar…He’s supportive and accepting, and my family likes him too. When Aunt Janice asked him what his intentions with me were (2 minutes after she met him for the first time) she liked his answer. And in this family, if Aunt Janice likes you, we like you. 😉 Dad will meet him in December, but I think he likes him already. =)
So…we share some interests and have some similar dreams/goals so we’ll take it slow and see where it goes. For now, my plan is to concentrate on today and make it another healthy one. I’m planning a long bike ride if the weather allows it. If not, I’ll hit the gym, and I’ll make healthy food choices regardless.
Are you happy with your progress this week?
