The Smitten Kitten

That would be me. *sigh!*

Warning: This post might make you barf a little. I'm going to be a little gushy, folks. Sorry.

I had a great weekend. Friday night was great! CN called me about an hour before we left to meet up with MJ & VW at The Hunter-Gatherer (a bar/restaurant):

"Hey, what are you wearing? I've never been to this place, before and I don't know what it's like," he asked.

"I'm wearing a dress, but you can wear whatever you want. I just wanted to wear my new shoes, and the only thing that went with them was this dress," I said.

"Ok, cool. Hey, I invited my friend The Runner to join us. Hope that's ok," he said.

"Sure! He can talk to KT, because she's a total gym rat, and she's coming, too," I replied.

"Ok, I'll pick you up soon," he said. We got off the phone.

A little while later, he knocked on my door. I was pleasantly surprised: without any prompting from me, he rose to the occasion and didn't wear his usual tshirt and jeans! He looked really nice! Yay! Brownie points for him!

We matched. Again. I swear, we always wear black. We look like we are going to funerals all the time. *rolls eyes*

We met up with MJ, VW and The Runner and had a very delicious dinner. KT joined us right before the band started. MJ, KT and I were the only ones familiar with Loch Ness Johnny, but the guys seemed to like it, too. After talking to the band members for a little bit after the show, we all went our separate ways.

I don't remember the details (Ok, maybe I just don't want to share them!) but CN and I hung out alone at my house for a little while until he went home. I'll let your imagination fill in the details. Wowza. I was definitely looking forward to watching the game with him the next day!

The next day, after cleaning up my house a little, going to the store to buy the ingredients for dinner and taking a nap, it was time for the USC vs. LSU game. CN came over and we began to watch the game as we snuggled on the couch.

I don't really know what happened during the second half...because we didn't watch it.....

So then I started on dinner (Chinese beef and broccoli) while he told me funny stories. You should have seen how he wolfed his food down! He was entirely too excited about dinner! "This is the way to get on my good side!" he said. (I made note of this for future reference.)

After dinner, we watched Borat, which is hysterical if you haven't seen it yet. By the time it was over, we were both pooped, so we called it a night.

I wasn't planning on seeing him on Sunday, but he texted me during the afternoon to see if I still needed help with my weed eater. "Yes, I can't get this one part on," I replied. He said he'd come over and look at it.

The next thing I know, he has assembled it correctly and proceeds to begin mowing my backyard! "You don't have to do that!" I yelled, over the noise of the weed eater. He turned it off.

"I know. I want to," he replied.


"Now that is how you get on MY good side!" I exclaimed, laying a big smooch on him, despite the fact he was very sweaty and covered with bits of grass. He told me to go back inside so he could finish up. I gave him another smooch.

Not surprisingly, this scene led to a joke between us about my affair with "the gardener". LOL

I felt all warm and fuzzy inside. He earned SO many brownie points with this move. "CN is mowing my yard right now, no questions asked. What a keeper!" I texted to all my girlfriends.

Afterwards, he left to go shower and meet up with The Runner to watch an NFL game, and I went to the local Greek Festival with MJ & KT. It was so freaking hot that we didn't stay very long -- we were melting! I went home after eating my gyro.

By this point, I was exhausted and was planning on watching a movie until bedtime. I popped in Blades of Glory and dozed in front of the tv. I wished CN had been there to watch tv with me, but he was still watching the game with his buddy. "Oh well, I've seen him enough this weekend, I guess," I thought. I fell asleep. I woke up to a text message.

"The Falcons lost again. I'm heartbroken," CN said.

"Do you need me to console you? Is this a dire emergency?" I asked.

"Yes! A dire emergency! You should come over," he said.

Cool, he read my mind, I thought.

"I'm really glad you came over," he said when I got there. "I missed you."

"I'm glad you wanted me to come over. I missed you, too," I said.

"Sorry. I've had a few beers. I'm going to be corny right now," he explained as he popped in a DVD. (Note to self: encourage him to drink beer more often.)

To avoid making my readers sick to their stomachs, I won't tell you what else he said. But I will say that we didn't watch much of that movie, either.

He's so sweet, so thoughtful, so funny. I think I'm a goner, guys. This one's a keeper, for sure.

So it's going really well. Now I know what everyone was talking about when they told me to start dating nice guys. :)

AW! that is such a great weekend!
I usually am the first one to make barfing sounds and taunt people I know when they get all mushy . . .but then, I find myself being the same way when I think I've got a good one. So, basically I'm a total hypocrite.

Becky said...

awww i love gushy stuff though! this is so awesome!

cmk said...

I'm thinking good thoughts for you! Sounds like he's as thoughtful as my hubby always has been.

GrewUpRural said...

So happy for you. Aren't nice guys the best? I am learning that myself right now.

Jen said...

Atlanta Falcons fan = definite keeper! <3 I share his disappointment with their loss as well. Glad you could comfort him and make him feel better. Maybe you'll become a Falcons fan as well before it's all over. :)

Phantom Hater said...

If you keep making posts like this, I'll waste away to nothing. I just can't keep my food down after reading all this gushy stuff! Just kidding! Glad things are going well. It really makes the other entries you wrote about CN and your horrible luck with dating much more funny now that your luck has turned around.

teahouse said...

Hey, so "he operated my weed eater" and "he came over and mowed my lawn" sound like they could be euphemisms for other stuff you lovebirds were doing...bow chickie bow wow!!!

Barb said...

I think *I* might be in love with CN.

Alison said...

I can't believe I missed all this! I've been busy catching up and I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND CN!! Yay!!

jen-- LOL they are having a terrible season, and not just because of the michael vick stuff. poor CN. he's been a fan forever. now that they make fan wear for women, and i can look cute when i wear it, you might just find me to be a fan soon, too!

PH-- ugh, yes, i want to barf, trust me! i will stop and return to my normally neurotic posts today.

teahouse -- i KNEW someone would point that out! LOL i love that my readers are as perverted as me :)

barb -- um...we are not ready for the "L" word here, barb. throwing that around really will make me barf. and keyboards are hard to clean. ugh, i can feel my tummy churning...

alison -- Yay!! Thanks!! Me too!!

crackfire - yeah, i know. so sweet.....*sigh*

ugh. i'm doing it again. no more gushiness!!! AAAARRRGH.

JP said...

After reading your previous post about him being sad that he couldn't hang out with you during the week, I'm beginning to think your mom was onto something with the whole "absence makes the heart grow fonder" idea. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. I might be a little jealous :)

Meghan (The Declaration of MY Independence) said...

OMG so happy for you! See, I told you. I hope your making HN jealous. What an ass hat he is!

Megan said...

i am doing the happy dance in office chair for you!!!

RWA said...

Can we go back to the posts where you were all upset and through with CN because there was no possibility of anything happening?

Just kidding.

You didn't watch the entire second HALF of the game.

Oh my...

I'll give CN credit for cutting the grass - and being a Falcons fan.

Virginia Belle said...

jp -- yeah, in order to avoid burn out, i told him we are not going to hang out much during the week. just on wednesdays. it's VERY hard to do, but i think it will be good in the long run.

meghan-- thanks! i don't really care what HN thinks at this point.

megan-- that is a funny mental image! hope you didn't fall. thanks for cheering me on!

rwa-- actually, we missed half time, the 2nd half, the post-game press conferences....and about an hour of TV after that........yeah.

The Dummy said...

Wow VB, you are SO down for the count! I love it. :)
