The other day, Eric said he had a “surprise” for me in the back of his car. I told him that my mom had told me never to listen to men who told me things like that.
But I’m materialistic, so I decided to disobey my mother’s warning and risk a worst-case scenario and thank goodness I did! In the back of the Bumblebee, I found a “random just-because-he-felt-like-it February 17th” gift!
So even though it’s cloudy in Houston right now, I’ve got something to brighten my day…
He’s a good boyfriend.
I borrowed his vintagey Book It! T-shirt (!!) to wear with them and I’m feeling rather sunny, despite the fact that it looks like April showers outside.
And the timing could not be better (OK, well, it could have been better, but that’s in the past now) — the shoes are perfect to wear to Galveston tomorrow for a beach BBQ! One of my best friends from college, Jordan, flew into Texas this week for a wedding and has invited Eric and me to the post-wedding party going on tomorrow. Jordan and I met when we studied abroad together in the UK. There is so much I could say about him, but let’s start with the fact that he is the friend who gave me my first tequila shot. He taught me how to lick the salt and bite the lime at a bar called Saucy Mary’s on the Isle of Skye, and our bond — and my love for tequila — has been cemented ever since.
Oh and it just happens to be his birthday today — a day I’ve been a part of in many years past (margarita cupcakes, anyone?) and so am excited to be part of again tomorrow!
I love Fridays and today, I can feel spring in the air and I’m so exited for the mini-road trip, the margaritas we’ll be drinking, and really, the fact that one of my best friends — who, as college went on, saw me at my most heartbroken and realized that introducing me to tequila was both a blessing and a curse — gets to meet the guy whose worst offense is his timeliness in presenting me with fabulous Valentine’s Day gift, an offense that does not make me want (need?) to drink tequila.
But we all know I think he’s a good guy; I’m really excited to let someone who knows me as well as Jordan judge him.
What are you all up to this weekend? Anything fabulous? Is it feeling like spring where you are?
