I’m a bit behind blogging lately. I think working, kids, illnesses, trying to maintain a social life and actually dating is starting to catch up to me! Once I put the kids to bed, I’m so tired I can’t even keep my eyes open to be able to jump on a computer.
Here’s my attempt at catching you all up on the highlights of last week. It was a fun week. 🙂
Wednesday – Captain asked me out to dinner and drove his little cute bum up to see me. I was a little bit worried that maybe the second date wouldn’t go quite as perfectly as the first one.
Well, no sophomore slumps here! First thing he said when he picked me up was “Damn, I forgot just how beautiful you were.” (Pick me up off the floor, y’all.) That started it all off right! We had drinks at a bar and then dinner at a gastropub by the name of Barley & Swine. Great drinks + great food + great conversation + sexy man + fabulous goodbye makeout session = Perfect night for me. I can’t say enough good things at this point. I’m enjoying this early dating phase where everything is perfect!
Thursday – Grayheart was on travel last weekend for work so my typical “Friday Night Fun” turned into “Thursday Night Fun!” (Side note… Can’t you kinda already see why my marriage was so challenging with his travel?)
My girlfriend, Jazz, and I decided to spend our night of fun and debauchery at a club in Little Havana (in Miami) known as “Hoy Como Ayer.” They had a live band called “Spam All Stars” that plays a mean Afro-Cuban/Latin funk infused with hip hop and salsa. Totally awesome! It was my first time seeing them and they rock! We danced and had a blast.
Saturday – I had my THIRD date with Captain. This time I went to the Keys to visit him. He’d been wanting to take me to something called a “Full Moon Party” that occurs once a month. Luck had it that it fell this particular weekend. He had a most romantic evening planned for us…
A few bottles of Moët & Chandon and fruit were waiting for me when I arrived. We drank our bubbly while sitting on his deck overlooking the water. He then took us to our dinner reservation at a fabulous restaurant where we shared food and great stories. The next stop was the Full Moon Party on the beach. VIP treatment, fireworks, performers, drinks, dancing… it was SO much fun! I, also, met all his best friends. We all got along really well and you can rest assured that I wiggled my bottom to show off that I was an old pro on the dance floor.
So, how did we end the night, you ask? More champagne and a most memorable evening at his house. Screw my year of celibacy. OH. MY. GAWD. HOW. DID. I. GET. SO. LUCKY?
I’m still in a haze over last week. It was just ah-mazing. Seriously. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.
Last Week’s Mantra: I am on such a high right now. ENJOY THE NOW!!!
