IN A ROW!!!!
It was so exciting!
On Wednesday I drove up there and when I got there he flung open the door.
I took one look at him and started laughing.
"What... Why? just... no..."
He was wearing plaid shorts and a plaid top.
So there he is.
Standing there with this cute grin on his face.
Wearing this goofy outfit.
He holds out his arms for a hug.
I shake my head.
"Not until you change."
Then I got to hug him.
It was nice to get to hug him.
I like hugging him.
Its safe and warm and cuddly.
We were going to go to the zoo on Wednesday but other stuff came up.
So instead we had a really nice chill day.
There was a good Bible study.
We had enchiladas.
We watched Boss Baby.
That movie is HILAIROUS.
SO MANY REFERENCES!!
If you have not seen it... you should.
Then we went to game stop and got a game to play.
So the silly goober got a box of rice krispies for the prize.
He doesn't actually like rice krispies as a cereal so we decided we were going to make rice krispie treats.
Like the whole box worth.
So after we got the game (Lego Movie Lego game)
As we were walking out of Game stop he pretended as though he was gonna go for a piggie back ride.
That ended up with him offering to give me a piggie back ride all the way through Hyvee.
It was pretty impressive.
We were even able to get the stuff off the lower shelves!
And some of the looks were priceless.
After a little bit of game play we went outside.
It was starless star gazing, but the whole idea was so sweet.
We had cookies and milk and everything!
It's funny how different the "how we met" stories differ between girls and guys.
I mean, for me, it also depends on who is asking and if they ask any follow up questions.
The next morning I drove back to his to his place.
I knock on the door.
He opens it.
And leans against the doorframe.
Dressed as the most nerdiest Erkle type nerd you can imagine.
Suspenders and bowtie included.
And in his most Erkle like voice he says,
"Hey hot stuff. How are you doing?!"
And I laughed.
He did get a hug this time.
Anything is better than plaid on plaid.
He did change.
But he kept wearing his converses.
That made me happy cause I was wearing converses too!
We went to the zoo.
The Zoo is HUGE!
While there. This conversation happened, after my sad attempt at making and elephant noise.
Zac: those are both male elephants.. They have tusks.
Me: no.. I am pretty sure that females can have tusks too..
*walks a little ways and sees a zookeeper type person talking about the elephants. We join the small group listening and Zac nudges me on to ask*
Me: do only male elephants have tusks?
Zookeeper: Actually no!
Me: Ha! *looks pointedly at Zac*
Zookeeper: *chuckles* Well, he is partially right. These are African elephants. Both males and females have tusks. However, Asian elephants, only the male have tusks that you can see. Females have them, but they do not protrude enough to show. They are actually called tushes [pronounced tooshies].
Me & Zac: *snickers at the word tushes*
Zac: well! You learn something new every day!
*we walk off*
Zac: I will concede, but knowing that they are called tushes makes it so worth it!
All during the zoo we made all sorts of Disney references.
I got to hold his hand <3
We got to see the penguins.
I learned he HATES snakes.
Then we went to this AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS Chinese place.
The food was so good and there was so much of it!
Then we were so full we had to take a nap.
Naps are my favorite.
They are so warm and cuddly.
They are simple and sweet.
I love naps anyways.
He just makes them even better! :D
Then we made rice krispie treats.
There was so much Rice Krispie Treat!
But they turned out really good.
He wanted to use the rainbow marshmallows.
However, we forgot that they would turn sort of brown...
Cause they mixed when they melted...
But they were still delicious.
And then there was game night.
Which was really fun.
Here are my favorite lines.
Him: You have something on your face...
Him: MY AFFECTION!!!! *kisses my cheek*
*Chemistry comes up (like the subject)*
Him: Chemistry has lots of numbers
Me: Like... your phone number?
Him: Ohhh! That was smooth!!!!
Him: *Leans in close to my face, and puts his eye to my eye and gives little butterfly kisses*
Me: Why... is your eye on my eye?
Him: Eyes are the windows to your soul... I am trying to see your soul... but it is dark...
Me: Like mah soul...
He also would give me sneaky kisses at the zoo.
He makes my heart melt.
I had tried to be sneaky and hide a present for him.
It was scented markers because he had never had them.
I hid them with his cookies with the intention of him finding it after I left.
He was talking about markers or something and he goes.
"Yeah I can do that. I have smelly markers."
And looks at me with this pointed look.
I exclaimed loudly, "YOU FOUND THEM?! YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO GET COOKIES YET!!!"
And he was like, "I didn't I just knew that there was something with the cookies because you were way too eager to get the cookies the other night."
Then I had asked him if he would get me a rice krispie treat while he got one for himself. He did. But then he ate it.
So I asked him if he would get some more and he did, but announced to the other guys at game night, "This in no way means I am whipped." And the other guys were all, "Uh-huh. You just keep telling yourself that."
Leaving was really hard that night.
I don't like that bit.
I love seeing him.
I hate leaving him.
When I am with him. All is right with the world.
I am in the safe place.
I am home.
Like really home.
It is a phenomenal feeling.
He is the sweetest most wonderful goober.
I cannot wait for our next adventures.
Who am I kidding?!
I cannot wait for our next phone call!
