It is the Monday after a long weekend and all I want to do is go home to my guys (yes I am still at work). I had an AWESOME weekend to say the least and really didn't do anything.
VonTrapp picked up the dudes Thursday afternoon while I was still here at work. And before I go on I just wanna say that I am in LURVE with technology! Well mostly just my iPhone. LOL. Why you ask? Well you know how I've bee getting all misty eyed because the dudes are growing up so fast? Well before they left, I got to facetime with them. I got kissies and all! Good stuff. How we humans lived and survived without technology like this is beyond me ;)
So I get home Thursday and there were no screams for mommy *tear*, just Big Daddy waiting for me to hand over the keys so he could go to rugby practice. But oh how I love that man! He cooked pork ribs and beans and greens! YUM! A quiet night alone to watch Grey's Anatomy..AWESOME.
Had to work Friday...meh. I tried to get the day off stating that my hubs is a veteran (which he is) and that I NEEDED to be home with him. Didn't work. But Big Daddy did pick me up from work and we went to get pizza and beer for dinner. It was great...we just talked and talked about nothing at all...just like when we first met. A little bit after dinner we went and hung out with a guy who he plays rugby with, Mike, and Mike's gf Erin. We had a blast just hanging out and laughing. We didn't stay over very long because the guys had a rugby tournament in Houston the next day and had to be up early to drive. When we got home, we actually cuddled and fell asleep together just like that.HA! That ish never happens! Mostly because I need my space when I sleep. But it was nice waking up to a full bladder needing to be emptied in the arms of my rugby player.
I dropped Big Daddy off at Mike's house early Saturday morning. Can I just tell you how nice it was to not have to worry about anyone but myself?! I mean I laid in bed and watched tv, read a bunch of blogs, and even (FINALLY) did my nails. It was great! Of course I did do responsible things like get my oil changed and tires rotated, and went and did laundry. Big Daddy and his team made it all the way to the finals in the tournament but lost the championship game. He called me after each game to give me the score and the rundown of how the game went. We talked and laughed and joked...just like when we first "dated." We had made plans to go to a friend's house to watch the Pacman fight so as soon as I got done with laundry I headed over there and waited until Big Daddy got back into town so I could go pick him up. The whole ride from Houston to Austin, we were texting. Like teenagers in love, with me giggling with every sweet text he sent. Straight cakin! That's what we call it: getting all mushy, acting sprung...cakin! He kept telling me he loved me and wished I was there when each game ended "like its supposed to be." For the first time in a long time, I got that butterfly feeling. When I went to pick him up he just hugged me and acted like he didn't want to let me go. Mind you, they played 4 rugby games and then got straight in the car and drove back here. He was NOT smelling any kinds of fresh. He was far from it! LMAO! But for the first time, I didn't care. I felt "in love." After the fight we came home, took a shower and, again, fell asleep in each others arms.
I woke up Sunday worried I had over slept and was going to be late for work. LOL. I was too happy when I went to the bathroom and looked at my phone and it said Sunday, November 13. And there it was, a text message from Big Daddy. What the?! It was sent at 3:27am and said: "I love you Nicole." four words, and my heart skipped a beat.
We had to go pick up the dudes later so we got coffee and bagels and then went grocery shopping. We held hands the entire time. Even on the 45 minute drive he held my hand. Once I saw BamBam's face through the window of VonTrapp's house, a part of me got sad. My romantic (to me) weekend was about to end. My sweet BamBam was in the middle of eating a nice hunk of chocolate cake and he just got up and ran to me and wrapped his sweet little body around my legs. Oh how I missed him and Juju. We stayed for awhile, and finished up some laundry we brought. Juju practiced shooting hoops in the driveway and even made a couple shots! Now he wants to play basketball. They were both hanging by a thread by the time we left VonTrapp's house. And just when I thought my romantic week had ended, he grabbed my hand in the car and didn't let go until we pulled up into our driveway.
Oh what a weekend! I got some much needed ME time to reconnect with myself and of course I got to reconnect with my love :D Now here's to keeping the love alive! Kiss your man/woman...right now damnit!
