My Go-To Date

Tonight, The Wedding Date and I are going to the art museum.  Those of you who have been reading for a while know how I feel about the art museum: it’s my go-to date, and frankly, I’m surprised it’s taken us this long.  I always subject my dates to the art museum, and usually I do it fairly early on as part of my vetting process, but The Wedding Date and I met eight months ago yesterday (!) and this will be our first visit.

I can’t wait.

Between his kids and my parents, we’ve had very little alone time lately and you can’t get much better than wine, live jazz and—oh yeah—art on a Friday night.  Plus, we’re meeting two of his friends at a nightclub in North Philly afterward so as long as I manage to figure out an outfit that’s appropriate for both the art museum and the night club, it’s going to be fabulous.

(Unless I don’t manage to figure out an outfit, in which case I’ll probably have a complete meltdown.)

For two people who love to dance as much we do, it sure has been a while.  We danced at the wedding where we first met back in July, then again at my friends’ wedding in January, and of course on the night of first date but seeing as it was out first date, we kept things pretty G-rated.  We also attempted to go dancing on Valentine’s Date and even bought tickets to this “exclusive young professionals ball” in Old City but said ball was cancelled because they didn’t sell enough tickets.

At any rate, I can’t wait to go dancing either.

And on that note, it’s time to go tidy up the guest room…

    I wanna know when would be the right time to introduce the wedding date to a fun filled weekend of competition!

      Hah! I’m not sure there’s ever a “right time” for that 🙂 Maybe he’ll be ready by the time the recital rolls around though…

    I know you aren’t a sports fan, but it’s too bad you didn’t catch the Duke-Lehigh game! It was fun to watch! 🙂

    I have been out of the blogosphere for a few weeks because moving country got in the way. So naturally when I discovered that TWD has kids and that you got too much hair cut, I freaked out too. I couldn’t text my friend from gradschool because I haven’t been,and even if I had, the chances that said friend would read the same blogs are slim. But wow, I admire how well you managed to write about TWD without blurting out the most important fact of all. It shows sensitivity to him – and you made the right choice: writing plenty of “omg – he has kids” posts might have got you lots of traffic, but it would have shown little respect of TWD and his life. Good luck with hemming and the kids. Hope you had fun at the art museum 🙂

      Thanks, and yes: “OMG he has kids!” would have been great blog fodder but I didn’t want to do that him (or them). Glad you’re back in cyber land 🙂
