Ha haaaaa. Finally a date night, overnight, no kids, me and my man. SWEET!!!! It has been waaaay too long. I told him that I feel like that old married couple, instead of sleeping in separate beds, we sleep in separate houses. So sad, LOL. Tonight is his companies shareholders dinner at the country club. Swanky. Not totally my element, but I think I can hold my own. Totally sad, I couldn't fit into any of my dresses. All this sickness, lack of working out, and steroid shots have really hosed me over. So after much dismay at lunch yesterday I finally found a cute black dress. Hugs me........can you say spanx support? Hahahahaha. But I think with some awesome heels and matching clutch, I'll make this look work. I will end up being about 2 inches taller than GPS though, lol, poor guy, we are now the Sonny and Cher.
Things are going so awesome with him. The kids are enjoying him, tomorrow he is attending his first soccer game for DS10. His daughters are still postiing on my FB and texting me every now and then. I gotta say, the whole M word has popped in my mind a time or two. We were talking last night about the lottery. I said if I won, we have to get married and move away, LOL. He said that I wouldn't marry him even then. Not to even pretend I wanted marriage. I wonder if he thinks I don't want it at all? I do, just not right now. We have been so sick in my house these past few weeks, Monday GPS said he wasn't feeling well. I told him, that he probably will never come back over to my house because of the germ pool there. He told me that wouldn't keep him away, only me telling him not to come would. I thought that was soooo sweet. I have a good one ladies. I feel that hard candy coating starting to melt on me, hahahaha. I may need to share these thoughts with him. Not saying we have to do anything now, but that I am open to it later on down the road. Maybe in a year or so.
But anywho, I'm taking off early today to get gussied up for tonight. I will be comfortable. I will rock that dress and heels. I will have an AWESOME time with my man. :-)

Have a good time at the dinner--it's fun to get dressed up & go out once in a while. I laughed at the Sonny & Cher comment--something I definitely can't relate to since I'm 5'1"--usually for me it's more like Eva Longoria & Tony Parker.

Awwwwww thank you ladies!!!!

It was a WONDERFUL evening!! I felt so pretty, and GPS was sooooo handsome to me. He wore the suit he bought two years ago for my sister's wedding. The two times he has worn a suit in two years, have both been with me, heehee. My heels and clutch had silver and purple in them, I was sooooo stoked to see that his shirt was lavender with a purple tie, LOL!!! We matched, and didn't even TRY!!! That made me giggle all night. I was sooooo comfortable walking in there with him, even though I was a good two inches taller. I rolled those shoulders backed and worked it girls. There was one other woman taller than me, and most of the men were shorter too, hahahahhaha. The women made comments about my shoes, and yes, I could notice my legs getting checked out by the men. GPS was eating that up. When we got in his car to go, he put on ZZ Tops "Legs", that made me laugh. Oh oh, when we got there, they didn't have his "guest" down. One lady told us there was office gossip about him bringing a date. Evidently they weren't believing he had one, poor guy. I'll tell you what though, by the end of the night they ALL knew he had a girlfriend. :-) He was introduced with the other new shareholders, and the chairman seated next to me made a comment that the guys not wearing a coat and tie wouldn't be shareholders for long. He was definitely old school, but I just beamed with pride that GPS was rocking that suit and looked so handsome. Ladies it was so wonderful. I'm still grinning.

This morning we got up and had a yummy breakfast and went shoe shopping for him. I told him that I came up with a reward system for me. Once I lose 30 lbs, I'm giving myself a full day spa treatment. Seasalt scrub, massage, vinchy shower, facial, nails, the whole shebang. He told me that if I made my goal, he'd treat me. That was so sweet, and nope, I have no problem taking him up on that, hahahahaha.

He wasn't able to make DS10 soccer game today. He has a deadline at work and had to go in. Well, the ex showed up with his fiance. So I walked over to them to talk about who was taking our son to his sleepover and I notice her covering her left hand in an awkward way the whole time. DD8 was holding my hand and the ex's hand swinging back and forth. So I say "The kids tell me congratulations are in order. I'm so happy for ya'll's engagement, I think it is wonderful". She just slightly smiled and shoved her hands in between her legs, hiding the ring. I'm like "really???" Good grief. It never ceases to amaze me how immature some people can be. When I told GPS he said that they are just jealous of our awesomeness, hahahahahaha.

Speaking of which. This morning I did tell him I wanted to clarify the whole marriage thing. I told him it is something I may want later, just not now, but I didn't want him to think it was never on the table for me. He told me he didn't really see us getting married, but if later I wanted to we'd see. I must say, I actually felt relief after that chat. It's been bouncing in my head because I thought it was something he wanted, and well, I don't think I am. He actually thought my 10 year plan was a joke, LOL. I told him no. So I feel much better about where we are, and that we can stay this course for as long as we both feel good about it. In my heart and mind, I see us getting serious about it after his daughter, and my two eldest graduate high school. That's only four years. He told me "babe, we already know each other, we may hurt each others feelings at times, but it isn't out of malice, we are honest with each other, I don't think in time we will find each other to be any different than we are now". Ladies that was so awesome to hear. I know, I'm weird, but that made me feel all warm and fuzzy. :-)
