… just left after a whirlwind 30-hour marathon date.
… was a little shorter than I envisioned, but still tall enough that I could (thankfully!) wear my pink wedge heels and not be taller than him.
… later said that the first few minutes were a little awkward. (He was right.)
… let me win the go-cart race, but kicked my trash at air-hockey.
… opened my doors (all of them) for me everywhere, every time. (Love that.)
… was oh-so-kind and careful and tender with me.
… said he “was really glad” about the results from the hairstyle vote. (Straight won for Day 1 & messy curly for Day 2.)
… drove me to the top of the mountain to watch the sunset over the lake.
… acknowledged and appreciated the time I took to get ready for him.
… noticed that I’d painted my nails for the occasion.
… let me taste some of his food at lunch. (I come from a family food sharers yo.)
… obeyed all traffic laws. (You SO could have made it through those 3 yellow lights before they turned red!)
… said he was surprised at how much I made him laugh. (Dude, I told you I was funny didn’t I?)
… also said he was surprised at how easy & normal it was to be together. (Agreed.)
… brought me a little present from the trip he took between the semester’s end and meeting me. (Thanks for thinking of me.)
… didn’t get offended when I fell asleep with my head in his lap during a conversation and didn’t get totally grossed out when I snored or drooled on his arm whilst sleeping. (Yes. You read that correctly and I can’t believe I’m actually writing that out loud. Can anyone say “mortified”!? I never snore. Ever. And I know everyone says that, but when I told Frit about it tonight, she was like, “I heard you snoring last night! You’ve got to be really tired or something, cuz you never snore!” And then she fell into a fit of uproarious-tear-inducing-laughter that I’d snored and drooled for 20 minutes while he watched me sleep. And then we were both laughing, and crying, and doubled over with side aches from the laughter. Cuz it is pretty funny. Alright, it’s actually really funny. But it’s kinda cute that he just watched me right?)
… took me to the aquarium.
… sat beside me while I finished some “have-to-do-now” work this morning before we could play.
… sat close to me on the couch when we watched a movie, cuz after a long, fun day we just wanted to stay in.
… would smile at me for no reason and say things like, “this is a really great day.”
… held my hand.
… asked if I wanted to come visit him in St. George next week.
I said yes.
