Father’s Day/Birthday party

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I know Andrew and I are very proud of the men we have in our lives.

We started the day with the grocery store, and church. Followed by a few minutes at home, and a trip to visit Andrew’s dad.

But of course, I had to make Andrew’s cake, because we celebrated his birthday with my immediate family tonight as well. (it was a big night full of LOTS of food (even some doubles haha), presents, and cake!)

Andrew picked blue icing

Mr Flower’s visit

In May, Mr Flowers and I started talking. (and by talking I mean facebook messages and texts) Fast forward to July, where phone calls began, and he was going to come and visit!  (man was I nervous!) But things fell through, when his uncle passed away the night before his visit.

We rescheduled for August, and again. ….Nervous. haha

Mr Flowers arrived the day after my hornet stings…..

~Friday~

Mr Flowers (or T that I call him on the good o’ blog) brought his twin 4 year old girls with him. We were treating the first get together like friends. We met at the park by my house. I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (I was shaking the entire time I was making the sandwiches haha)

At the park, I was greeted with a hug, and shy hellos from the girls. Then the kids took off, and T and I headed to the picnic tables. For about 5 minutes, I could tell we were both a little nervous. But then we got to talking, just like we have the past 3 months, and it was like we had been friends forever

After running around, Andrew and I took them to Ted Drewes! You can’t come to St Louis, and not get custard!

We ate on the  patio, and then the three kiddos colored and decorated paper, and before we knew it, it was 9pm and way past everyone’s bed time.  With a hug goodbye, they were off to their hotel

~Saturday morning~

I woke up bright and early, to a text from T.  They would be ready to go to the zoo in 15 minutes, whoops. Better go get Andrew up! haha.

While we were getting ready, T and the girls ran to the gas station to get drinks and snacks. I was impressed!

The zoo was an adventure, but the kids loved it! I was glad to show them a great part of the city.

(his girls with Andrew)

Then it was time for pizza and little relaxing.  Our mutual friend, Chrissy, had a birthday party for her son, and we all went to celebrate.

At the party, it never felt forced or uncomfortable with T and his girls. It seemed natural. Of course the other moms/friends were there asking who he was. haha. They even commented that it didn’t seem like our “first meeting”. I have to agree.

The only bad news: we didn’t take one picture together. And I didn’t take ONE PICTURE! WHO AM I!??!!? haha

Who knows what the weeks/months/years will bring, but I know, I can’t wait to find out.

 

The next visit….September 3rd 🙂

Question for you:

Would you call this talking, dating, or exclusive?

haha just kidding. I think my mom will appreciate that question

Getting ready to party

So did anyone think that yesterday’s post was all over the place?!?! ok. Good. I’m glad it wasn’t just me! haha.

And you might want to know why. Well, not only am I trying to stay on track with this crazy marathon training, but I also meet with Annie twice a week to do circuit training. (today we did week 1) And on top of that I am planning a birthday/housewarming party for Saturday and working. I MUST be crazy.

(last years party was very low key, considering we hadn’t finished the kitchen or even moved in the house yet! haha) Present from my parents last year, a trimmer. Best gift ever!

I LOVE having a barbecue, but its just a lot on my plate. (oh I also have to clean the whole house with Andrew’s help…) This is how he spent some of the time

haha you can even see him taking the picture! (His head is in middle of the kichenaid mixer haha) Well I guess, my mom takes pictures of everything. I take pictures, even of food. So it is just inevitable that he will take TONS of pictures! haha

I also found this funny that he hung on his door…….

Question for you:

What is your favorite party to attend? Birthday, wedding, swim party, card games,….?
