2 Months

So this is going to be a cheesy post...you may want to look away if you are tired of my "I'm so happy" posts! ;)

Two months ago this past Sunday, I finally (like 1 or 2 days later) replied to a post on OKCupid from this guy with a blurry picture and barely any information posted on his profile. I felt I was politely saying thanks, but no thanks... He took it as a challenge to change my mind and I am sooooo glad that he did! We messaged back and forth for quite awhile on the website and then he mentioned he was using his phone to do it and it wasn't all that easy, would I mind exchanging phone numbers and texting. I figured I had nothing to lose as we'd been chatting for 1-2 hours and I hadn't stopped smiling/laughing the whole time. We then proceeded to text for another several hours. During that time, he asked me out on an official date for the upcoming Friday night. I accepted. The next 2 days, we texted all day long while at work and pretty much all evening those nights. We lived 10 minutes apart at the time...I mean, really?!? ha

On Wednesday of that week (exactly 2 months ago today), AxMan and I were texting during the work day, when out of the blue he asked me if I would like to meet up that night because he didn't think he could wait until Friday to see me. Insert your AWWWWWs here. ;) How could I say no after that?? I luckily didn't have any plans, so we agreed to meet at Dairy Queen for an ice cream treat in the neighboring town. I remember having butterflies fluttering around in my stomach on the way there (it was a 15 minute drive) AND then I got stuck behind some slow drivers, plus a tractor, and quickly texted to let him know that I was running late, but was NOT standing him up. :) He replied a thanks for letting him know. I got there, stepped out of my car, and the first thing I see is a co-worker of mine and his family sitting at a table eating ice cream...and of course, they have to stop me to chit-chat. I'm nervously glancing over my shoulder to find AxMan and see him sitting in his SUV. I make a polite getaway and walk over to his vehicle where he gets out and gives me a big hug. :) We had some idle conversation and made our way over to the ordering window. Yep, we are in small town Indiana...so it's still old-school, only open a few months each year kinda DQ. We both get our treats and he pays, then we sit...by my co-worker. AWKWARD. Luckily, they left shortly after we sat down and from there, we proceeded to have one of the best first dates ever, all alone at our table for the next few hours!

I remember standing by my car waiting to say our goodbyes and go home. He was standing super duper close to me and I kept thinking, just kiss me already! ha He finally reached out and grabbed my hand...I looked up at him and said, I know what you're thinking - just do it. So he did. He leaned in and kissed me. ;) It was a pretty great first kiss.

So here we are...2 months later...in a place I never expected to be. This amazingly good man now lives with me. I adore his girls (and he swears they love me just as much). We still learn something new about each other every day. I am learning how to feed extremely picky eaters (no really, all 3 of them are super picky...and Jenna, I know you think I'm picky, but you have NO IDEA). All in all, life is good great. We're busy and really just want a break from everything (especially the moving/unpacking), but each day keeps getting better. I love that he talks to me...about any and everything. It's good to know that they aren't any secrets or drama.

Tonight we went back to where it all began....Dairy Queen. hahaha Yep, you read that right. To commemorate our 2 months, we decided to go have another ice cream treat and relive our first date. This time we changed up our orders and it was luckily about the same temp as last time (maybe even cooler), but still fun! If I had to do it all over again, I would...in a heartbeat! :)
