Puppies, Proms, Dates, & Rainbows

Prom:

Saturday my friend Chasie’s little sister and her friends are getting read for the prom at my place. Then I’ll go with little sister and her boyfriend to other friends’ homes for photographs. Since I’m playing “mom” I think this means I need to give the prom “sex talk,” right? Fun! I think it’s sweet that little sister wants to hang out with me.

Dating Update:

Two weeks ago I had a 10 1/2 hour (first) date with Match Guy # 5 ("James"). We met at a park in Nashville at 1:30 and with the exception of a walk to my car to retrieve cupcakes (chocolate cake with insanely delicious peanut butter frosting if you must know) we did not move until after dark. Remarkable, really since if nothing else I usually use the restroom every hour or two and am pretty fidgety. I was worried A2, who I was staying with, would think I'd been killed and chopped into pieces, so we finally got up so I could grab my phone and text her. Then we went to dinner and parted ways around midnight.

Needless to say, I really enjoyed talking with James and found him to be as well-read and interesting as expected. It took me several days to process all of our conversation. It only took me one day, however, to very much appreciate the CD he gave me. His profile stated that “It's not at all a stretch to say that I make one of the top 3 mix tapes in Nashville,” and I won’t disagree. I feel richer by knowing him.

This evening I have my first second date with a Match guy--MJ--the guy who brought cupcakes to our first meeting a month ago. We’ve talked once or twice since then and emailed a little so no incredible momentum, but we’ll see. He seems like a nice, active, enthusiastic guy, so if nothing else I’m sure I’ll enjoy our time together.

In other news, I may have a new case that I’m really excited about....lets just say I’ve been doing “research” on Myspace. I love employment law. Plus a co-worker just discovered a bakery a mile away from our office with delicious cupcakes (or at least the two I just ate were).

Happy Thursday!

p.s. I am thankful for strawberries and my mom growing them in her backyard. Yummy!

It sounds like you are doing well, my friend.

Ally said...

Thomas: I am, thanks. Loving this summer weather too.

TC said...

I think any time you can spend that much time with one person without needing a break is a good sign :)

P.S. Did I miss the puppies in this post?

I *did* think you had been chopped into tiny pieces, so I appreciated the text! And I like my new bloggy initials :) Love you, friend.

James seems promising...

Ally said...

TC: There were no puppies (or rainbows)....I just like to sign off letters with "puppies and rainbows" or "xoxoxoxoxox." I'm just...silly, I guess.

A2: I need to change my blogroll to update "Isabella."

I'm very glad strawberries are back in season. I'd forgotten how good they taste! x P.S. The Photographer says thanks for the support!

OK Chick said...

Oh good, cupcake guy is back. I like him. However, Match Guy #5 brought you cupcakes too? You must be a well known cupcake fan. HA!

Sister #2 had prom last weekend. Sister #1 and I went home to see her leave for prom. It was fun. All her friends ate dinner at my parents house, got dressed, took lots of pictures, and then left. I don't miss high school, but it would be nice to get dressed up again.

Enjoy your date!

Ally said...

L.C.T.: Ha. Glad he is appreciative. Fresh strawberries from a farm taste so much better!

OK Chick: Match Guy #5 didn't bring cupcakes; I brought them. And fun about sister #2's prom. Sounds like your parents' house is the place to be.

Jennifer said...

After reading this post, I have this incredible craving for cupcakes. I believe I am going to have to make some this weekend now. THanks for that. (o:

Cat_Chaser said...

Oh thanks for the cupcake taste report! I could really use a cupcake/strawberry to re-energize.

OK Chick said...

Oh ok-got it about the cupcakes. Well that was nice you brought him cupcakes. I bet you scored some brownie points.

Ally said...

Jennifer: I'm making some too! Baby shower time.

CC: and it is an excellent way to recharge....

OK Chick: He'd never had Gigis, so it was the least I could do :)

Aaron said...

I thought you baked the most delicious cupcakes in Nashville?

Scotty said...

10.5 hours... is a long time!

What kind of cupcakes were they? I'm a sucker for good cuppycakes.

Scotty said...

I can't believe they were the chocolate ones with peanut butter.

I'm going to have to make those now.

OK Chick said...

Date update!!!

Ys said...

Mmm so much cupcake talk! You've made me hungry!

The date sounds as though it went superbly well. A guy you can talk to for that long is definitely a good one ;)
