late this morning, after i'd finished my exercising and at least my 2nd conversation with good ol' neddie on the phone discussing wedding plans, i realized that today would be my last off track chance of having lunch with garrett. so i texted him and we quickly decided to have lunch on this, my last day off track.
i jumped in the shower and shaved my legs with a vengeance. an hour later, i was on my way.
we decided to hit the cafe rio. nothing tops lunch with your sweetheart better than choosing a place like the rio. for a little rhia later, if you get what i'm saying. so garrett decides to get the thursday special - tamales. what i like about the specials is that they come with drinks. so in line, we had a discussion about if we could share the drink (me, begging) and if so, what we could drink. i thought that since we're having a nice little romantical lunchy, we could indulge a bit, by drinking the dr - heaven on earth. he wanted to do diet coke (ick. gag me with a spoon. i'd sooner drink water.) then he tried to negotiate for lemonade. again, water - if i'm going to waste my calories, i wanna enjoy thoroughly. seeing as how he's perfect & wonderful, he gave in and let me get a dr pepper. hey, i shared. after the first refill. which he got.
let me get to the point. i filled the drinks, he carried the food. i was the only one who handled or touched the drinks in any way shape or form. i was spazzy before i'd even eaten or drinkin'. (i'm still spazzy and when i'm spazzy, i make words up to my liking. tough for you if you don't like when people do that. i do it. and this is my blog, so bite me) so we sit down, and i go to take my first, LONG AWAITED drink. and as i'm sipping, scratch that - gulping is probably more appropriate - my lap starts getting wet! i look down, dr pepper is spilling all over my salad (that's not what i was unhappy about... it was my light khaki's that made me snap) and my pants. i didn't think, i just blamed (see heather, apparently - i'm going to do it, too) and semi-yelled, "Garrett!!! what did you do?"
now... before it was even done getting out of my mouth, i was realizing that it was my fault. i had poorly attached the lid to my drink. but sometimes a girl talks faster than she thinks. and luckily, said girl has found a wonderful, patient and witty man - who can deal and put up with her. garrett's response was: yeah, i'm sorry for messing with the top, that i haven't even touched! i apologized, he accepted, lunch was not ruined. we laughed over it. he knows i'm a raging lunatic. hello- that's an easy one to figure out. plus, i think he was entertained at my enjoyment level at the drinking of the dr pepper.
we enjoyed the rest of our lunch mainly discussing wedding plans. we're both thrilled with how smoothly things are coming along. we're both super excited. he's adamant about having lots of pictures taken. i'll be a good sport there (i think... i mean, i'll try) and try my hardest not to make silly faces, but i'm kinda known to do so.
i just had to post this lil' story - cause it shows a couple of things... i'm silly. i like it. i can't help it. you have to be able to enjoy yourself. i'm so thankful to have found someone who can roll with, and even enjoy me. also, i made it 13 days straight with no dr pepper. i indulged a bit today, but it was a special lunch. i'm going to skip it again for another 2 weeks. (hey, i've started losing weight & momma likey those benefits!) we're in operation-no-chubby-bride full swing around here!
ok. i'm off to the treadmill, so that its open when garrett comes over tonight. toodles. (oh, even though i already exercised this morning, i'm doing it again tonight, to make up for a heavy & calorie filled lunch.)
