Fly Away With Me

by Rachel on June 23, 2011

Last night, Eric and I were at Houston’s Hobby Airport, reminiscing about the early days of our relationship that took place at…Hobby Airport.

“Want to make out in the car for old time’s sake?” I said, referring to our second kiss after he picked me up for our first datecation.

“I’m afraid you might hurt me,” he said, gesturing to his stitches.

I was affronted. We then proceeded to have a five-minute argument on what exactly happened after he picked me up. I still maintain that I have never in my life straddled anyone in the front seat of a car.

But it was actually exactly a year ago this week that all that was happening! If you’re just joining the story and wondering how we met, or just the kinda girl who likes to re-watch old rom-coms, you can read my posts from last year here.

In Which We Mess With Texas

Datecation Day #1: Fish Tacos & Margaritas

Datecation Day #2: Greek Pizza & Getting Face Down Ass Up (Not Necessarily in that Order)

Datecation Day #3: BBQ, House Envy, Gelato, and Firefly Vodka

Datecation Day #4: Cougars and Quesadillas

Datecation Day #5: Hail, Caesar…and Ron Burgundy

Datecation 2.0: Hot Wings and Hot Tub Time Machine

Datecation 2.0: Crying While Eating

Anyway, the real reason we were at the airport was because we were picking up my mom and brother! I’m so excited they are here — it’s their first time in Texas and I haven’t seen them since Christmas. I cannot wait to take them outside this afternoon and let them realize that seriously, when I talk about the heat and humidity down here, I’m NFA.

Have fun with your family!

My husband and I made out in a cab a few weeks ago and it was exciting, it really did remind me of the beginning of our relationship!

I love that you specify you’ve never straddled anyone in the *front* seat of a car.

Sigh. I love these datecation posts and I think its awesome you have it all documented to revisit. Can’t believe its been a year..have fun with the fam!

Gotta love airports to trigger some nostalgia, too. Once my datecation-er had a 6 am flight on a Saturday morning. Needless to say, we went out Friday night and then took a 2 hr detour in the back of Longterm Parking. Classy.

So glad you have family visiting and that you weren’t going through all of your sickness/medical drama during this time! Enjoy!
