My girlfriend

I have a confession to make.

I have a girlfriend. (shhhhhh) Yep, that’s right. She is thee Best! In fact we even went out on a date last night and I am not to afraid to tell you about it because we had such a GREAT time! We always do! Actually, we had a few rendezvous’ Saturday. Our dinner date was just the topper.

We regularly share a special moment each morning on my way to work (and her way to school) and I always try to make some time for her at the end of the night and ‘give her a kiss and tuck her in.’ She smiles when I do this of course and tries to think of any and all reasons for me NOT to leave her and say good night at the end. She is quite good at this actually.

Here is a copy of the last precious mail she sent me earlier this week:

daddy's card

Can’t see it too good? That’s because she is generally soft-spoken in nature. A real jewel but soft-spoken.  She is asking me if I want to share an ice cream sandwich with her. Can you make out a ‘I love you’ there towards the bottom?

Earlier in the day we had talked about upcoming summer getaways, where we would like  to go, when,  where and we also looked at some pictures of some paradise, envisioning her and her other two favorite girls coming along with us! Nice! It was fun to imagine. The plans are still in the works.

So, last night Mom’s stomach was full at dinner time and she said “why don’t you all fend for yourself”. Seeing a golden opportunity, I quickly asked my girl friend if she would like to go out on a date. All smiles, she nodded her head Yes!

Our youngest wanted to stay with Mom so off I ran out the door for a cozy date at her favorite watering hole.

We had a great time! No, the best once-in-a-lifetime time! So good in fact that I couldn’t keep this special time all to myself. So, if you can keep a secret, here are some pics from our date:

All this while we were waiting for our dinner to be served. We had a blast. Everyone should have a girlfriend like the one I got!

And this date was just the topper for the day. I mentioned how we went on another outing or two Saturday. One of our dates was to the Circus in town. We had a special time there at’ the Greatest Show on Earth‘. It was Ok!  (future blogs are in the mix).

Yes, we hit the circus on a prearranged date, along with my other girlfriend:


One can only wonder, ‘How good can this get?’

After the circus we went out to my favorite BBQ spot, the succulent and saucy Alabama BBQ of Jim and Nicks. It was D-Lish! (shhhh, it had been my secret wish to go there the whole time!)

We had such a good time everyone went home to bed afterwards…. And took some naps. I can really tire my ladies out!

Have a great week everyone! Pencil in a date with your special someone(s)!
