I Can't Stop Smiling!

I literally can't stop smiling! I am generally a smiley person, but this week has been wonderful! I have been talking to D.

We went on a nice dinner date on Tuesday night where we literally couldn't stop talking, touching, or smiling. In fact we sat there in the restaurant till the staff had put up all the chairs and the manager came out to politely tell us that we didn't have to go home but we couldn't stay

What the hell has come over me! Let me start by saying first this week started off like this....for the first time in over 5 years I turned T down for sex! OMG I didn't even think about it I just did it, I told him no.

Then after the dinner and conversation on Tuesday he asked if I'd like to have dinner with his parents next week for his birthday (which I have already gotten him a gift for..shhhh)! I didn't even hesitate to say yes I would love to.

What the hell has gotten into me...I think I have been possessed by some giddy smiley teenager!

Then he says "want to take the kids to dinner and a movie this week?". Again I said yes!

So tonight we met at dinner with my 12 year old son and his 10 year daughter. We had a nice dinner and everyone got along great. Then we went to the theater to see the new Disney movie Tangled, which was great! After the movies we stopped by the game room for the kids to play arcade games and where we played a game of air hockey and he beat me badly, only because I couldn't stop laughing! (OK he beat me fairly lol) .

After the dinner and a movie and games, his daughter and I decided that we should all go for ice cream. Secretly it was my plan to offer it so that I could spend more time with him :) OMG what is wrong with me! So we all go get ice cream (which totally screwed up my week I spent at the gym this week and sit for another 45 minutes laughing and talking.

Unfortunately both the kids have to go to school in the morning, so being the responsible parents we are, we called it a night!

Wow, I can't recall ever feeling this way this fast about anyone, especially anyone that returned the feelings. I only remember having this feeling for T after our first date over 5 years ago and he quickly shot it down! I am totally in unmarked territory! I am freaking out! I haven't even had sex with him yet! I don't want to screw this up! I screw everything up!

Why now?
Why him?
I wasn't looking!
I was happy being single!
Someone stop me from smiling my cheeks hurt!


  1. Oh might be the two glasses of wine and half a percocet...but I'm crying! I am so incredibly happy for you! :-D
    I'm all giddy and excited for you. I know how hard it is to turn down T for took me 12 years to do it with EK. It means something. I swear to God...I hate this saying...but I'm going to use it (ugh) "You always find him when you stop looking". I am so happy for you. Just be you, breathe, keep smiling...and you won't mess it up. When it's won't mess it up!
    YAY!!! So happy for you.

  2. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds so wonderfully romantic... enjoy my friend, so enjoy this amazing rollercoaster!

  3. It is so true. You find someone when you aren't looking at all. I found my honeyman when I was so against wanting to get into a relationship. But I did afraid I'd lose out on something great and I was right.
    You just be you. He already likes you so how would you screw it up?

  4. whoo hoo, fabulous lovely lady. I can almost feel your smile and it has me smiling too. They say that when you stop looking you always find.

  5. Thank you to all of you! I always heard it happens when you least expect it! Who is this puppeteering me!? lol I even woke up smiling...I know it's sickening, I promise to get back to me usual crazy blog momentarily!

  6. That's great new! I'm really happy for you!

    You'll be fine, just sit back and relax...

  7. Okay, well, now I'm smiling insanely big right now after reading this!!!! You are too cute about what you are feeling, too!! Sweetie, your heart is definitely feeling something true and real with this man. This is so the way it should be!!!! I'm so happy for you!!

  8. Thank you Thank you and Thank you...I am super excited about this man and this relationship. I am being super cheesy about it too....I can't help myself!
