Day 3 - We're a little unorthodox

Today is supposed to be about my idea of a perfect first date.  The truth is, I don't have an answer to that question.  I never thought about it, & I don't intend to.  Sorry.

Instead, I'm going to make this post about my first "date" with DJ.

You may or may not know that DJ & I were introduced by his sister, Jenn @ South of Sheridan.  And by introduced, I don't mean in a "I'd like you to meet my brother because I think you have a lot in common way."  It was more like, "You're at my house.  He's at my house.  Now you've met."

For a while, I only ever saw DJ when I was with Jenn & her hubby Ben.  But after a while we started emailing each other, which lead to phone calls.  Then one day I invited myself over to his place for dinner, which I agreed to pick up since it was rude of me to invite myself over.

We had DiGiorno pizza & watched Gray's Anatomy.  Then, Jenn came over.  Turns out, a family friend was in the hospital.  Their mom had gone to visit, & ended up on the way to Delaware.  So, Jenn & Ben had to go on a search & rescue mission - & DJ needed to keep his little sister Michelle.

So little Michelle crashed the date, but I wouldn't have had it any other way.


  1. I didn't intentionally not post yesterday. Some things happened (which I'll write about when I post). I plan on catching up and doing days 2 and 3 this evening. :)

  2. :))) thats too cute! I think that sounds like a great first date!

  3. mom mom was telling me the same thing about kyle & basketball today (she dropped soup off at work)
    my new name for her is BUSIA-8 (because she is polish & has 8 grandkids)

  4. What a cute first date! I love that you invited yourself over ;)

  5. What a great idea! I want to go back and do my Day 3 all over again! The BF & I had the worst 1st...2nd...and 3rd date! lol How we got engaged is beyond me! =D
