Cal Dating

Sqeeeeeee!

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?

      Well, hmmmm…….he knew everything I curiously picked up….for instance, he knew all about the aforementioned Buddha’s hand as well as the reason for deviations in color of certain vegetables. And he knows how to cook stuff and make it taste awesome…and he’s tall and handsome and nice to me. 😉 You know how I adore that. =)

    How wonderful! Congrats. 🙂 He sounds wonderful. And age is just a number… there is a BIG gap between my hubby and me, and we’ve been together 13 years. 🙂 All that matters is he makes you happy!

    I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for you! It sounds like you have quite a catch on your hands. And by the way, he most definitely does NOT look much younger than you at all – don’t sell yourself short girl! 🙂 Really, I am super happy for you and can’t wait to hear all about the wonderful times you two have together.

    So wonderful! Thanks for sharing, and for officially introducing us to Cal.

    And I must say Aunt Janice makes me laugh. Makes her sound pretty tough…if Aunt Janice likes you, you’re golden.

    Haha, absolutely NO insult mean to your man, but no, I cannot clearly see an age difference. 🙂 I see a cute couple.

    I love, LOVE, LOVE that he let you put his picture here!!! Correct me if I’m wrong but wouldn’t your last not let you?

    And who cares if he’s much younger? My husband, who adores me like no other, is much younger than I — I’m 44 he’s 38. As you like your Cal for being intelligent, my husband is MY human google. How funny that is 🙂

    My husband has long been my champion. Loving me long before I loved myself. Strangely, before me, he dated the thin, blonde cheerleader type. Now? Well, we’re going on 11 years together. I’m red haired and weigh well over 200 (used to weigh 406 but had surgery.. )

    100000000 Congrats dear 🙂 he seems quite a catch..wish u lots of happiness with him 🙂 I kept smiling while reading ur article its so romantic i love it…
    And btw i can’t tell the age difference..as long as u r happy and satisfied with him as a partner age is just a number..don’t complicate things, as finding a real partner in life is tough already, so hang on to him as long as u r happy and content 🙂
    At the end, i would like to say “stay fit and healthy and in love ;)”
