This weekend was so absolutely amazing.
Friday was pretty uneventful. I did spend the evening running around town with my mom. I love when we have time together like that. She's my best friend and I love her.
Saturday was date day with the new boyfriend. He planned the entire day, which I loved. He lives out in the middle of nowhere but it's so peaceful. He gave me a tour of his little town, we went to a cute Italian place (and I proceeded to eat way too much Chicken Parm). But it was oh so good and so worth it. We went bowling afterwards, so at least I worked off some of it! And it was a competitive few games. He's in a bowling league, so naturally he was good. Someone that worked at the bowling alley challenged me to beat him, and I tried. I actually played good for me. I had scores of 85, 96 and 100. Granted that doesn't come close to his 180, 222 and 211, but we had fun.
The best thing about living in southwest VA is the blue ridge parkway. It is beautiful and so peaceful. So we went for a ride on the parkway, just at the NC border (a portion I had never been). He kept telling me that he was taking me to this place where he comes to just think sometimes. It was a gorgeous overlook and you could see for miles and miles. The downside was that it was cloudy and foggy, but on a nice hazy-free day, it would be magnificent. You could see Mt. Airy, NC and Pilot Mountain, NC (for the geographically inclined). It was one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen and I totally know why he likes it there. This was the point where he also confessed to me that he was falling hard. That in itself is a huge thing to tell someone, especially when you've been hurt like he has in the past. But it was a relief. I had been feeling the same thing for a little over awhile, but I didn't want to rush saying it in fear of scaring him away. So I was pleasantly surprised and beyond happy.
There were also some high school kids there taking prom pictures, so that was cute to watch. The only downside to this part was that I stood with my knees locked on accident for about 10 minutes. I didn't realize I was doing it until they started hurting. And when I went to bend them I almost fell. Not fun. Don't ever do that, it hurts like crazy. It took a while for the stiffness to go away, and there is still a dull ache behind both knees.
After that we went to the movies to see Thor. Which was great, by the way. And I didn't give in by having theater food! But this theater was seriously cold so I was freezing the entire time. The good side to that was that we got a little cuddle time in :)
After the movie it was about 9:30. I had been with him since 12:30. We went back to his house and I had every intention of leaving by 10:30 (not because I don't love being with him, but because it was dark, rainy and where he lives there are nothing but curvy roads that I'm not familiar with. That and I had been up since about 5 that morning, so I was slowly getting tired.
Well that didn't happen. We just started talking and time seriously got away from me. I didn't even look at my watch all night. The next thing I knew it was about 1:30 am!?! So I ended up staying at his house. A little cuddling (too early for anything else) and I was out. I have to say it was nice falling asleep in his arms feeling safe and happy. Am I crazy for staying, probably, but I've never felt more comfortable with anyone, ever.
There is definitely something different about this one. Have you ever had the feeling that someone was "the one" after just a few weeks? If you have, then you know I'm not crazy for thinking that. I've never been able to just sit and talk with someone for hours at a time, and even when we're quiet it isn't an awkward silence. It's still just as comfortable. I can say without a doubt that I have already fallen in love with him and that is scary. I had no intention of it happening so fast, but it isn't something you can fight. And I know that if I did try to fight it, I'd screw up and ruin something. So I'm going to let things happen as I feel them. And yes you can call me crazy, but he is the one. I've never even had that feeling about someone else, no matter how long we were together.
And now that I've made everyone nauseous with my gushy story, I'll get back to work!
