Meet the Parents

Weekend Recap

First things first, let me fangirl all over the new button design!!
Love it! Check out Bella and Lisa then link up <3

I was able to take off work to spend time with you know who!! I slept in and wasted about half the day away! I've not done that in YEARS. Samoa and I went hiking on a really tough trail to my second favorite waterfall, Laurel Falls
Sorry, not the best picture, but it's so pretty! We went swimming and the water was FREEEEZING, but we still had a great time :) What I tried to prove him was a tough trail, turned out to be super easy for him. Being a football player and an Army Vet... obviously he knew what he could handle and it was worse than this hike. He was up the mountain in NO time, had to come back down and check on me a few times. I'm a slow yeah..

After hiking we came back to the apt and he cooked me dinner :) Just spaghetti but it was just so sweet. He knew I was worn out from the hiking and he let me chill out on the couch for the rest of the evening while he cooked..and get this... CLEANED!! Ahh I freaking love it :) 

We then went over to a really good friends house for a bonfire, s'mores, and some Just Dance on the Wii! Super fabulous day!!

This is where the title of this post ties in.. BIG day for Samoa and I. 
I didn't intentionally want him to meet the parents so soon, but they were stopping by my place because I'm watching their dog while they go on vacation. My place is on the way to their destination, so it kinda worked out. We met them for breakfast off the interstate.. and everything went soooo well!! He clicked with them so easily, had my dad smiling (which is sometimes hard to do!) of course my mom was liking him as well. As we were walking to the table she looked at me and said, "He is SOO handsome!!" 
Which.. he really is! Honestly.. the best looking guy I've ever been with and I don't see myself getting anyone more attractive everrr..nor do I want to.

Typically my dad's response to the dudes I introduce to them is something along the lines of:
& of course at first he was all big and tough, but afterwards.. he sent me a text saying he really liked him!!! I just wanna let ya'll dad has NEVER EVER EVER done that. Not once. And I've introduced them to 3-4 guys that I was serious with. Of course my mom sent heart faced emojis all day talking about him, but I am still in shock that my dad said what he did!

After the big meeting, Samoa and I were extremely lazy for most of the day. I've already learned what our lazy days will consist of from now on.. him playing video games while I pin away on Pinterest :) We've even developed a comfortable cuddle position where I lay against his side and he's able to use the controller. We were also able to keep conversation going as well, some of my pins initiated some good discussion.. May need to write a post about good convo starters..Pinterest is a great way to introduce that!

Seriously, that's all we did most of the day. However, we took a drive to pick up a set of patio furniture my friend gave to me..other than that.. back on the couch to be lazy!

We had every intention of getting up and going to church.. I promise we did! Had our clothes laid out and everything! We didn't wake up til 1:00 p.m. Only because the night before we stayed up til about 4am just talking about where this is going as well as some past information that was important to both of us. 

He had to leave around 4:00.. sad times. There were about 3-4 tornadoes that hit less than a mile from my apartment beginning at 6pm lasting til 8pm. Thankfully, nothing was damaged at my place, but for other families.. houses were leveled. It's really sad. 

^^ Here's a link to the news video showing the tornado footage. This was extremely close to where I live.

Samoa made it back to his place in time to take shelter (about an hour from me) and now he's gotta pack his bags and travel about 5 hours for work this week. 

We've been talking about planning a quick vacay before school starts for me and football starts for him. Hopefully we can get something planned out!! 

That's my weekend! Can't wait to read about yours :)


  1. "Of course my mom sent heart faced emojis all day talking about him" That is so cute.

  2. I know, my mother is adorable!! She really really liked him though :)

    Can I love him for you too? I think it is so great to get the comfortable lazy day ways in in the beginning because those are the quiet times where you have to be good together.

  5. Sure of course you can!! I think it's fantastic. I LOVE my lazy days and I'm glad we've already found out how we'll be spending our lazy days together :)
