Our first date. By Eric Westover


The hubs and I went over to our friends house this past week for a couple’s Valentine’s day party. It was sooo much fun. Like, roll me home because I ate way too much and possibly peed my pants kind of fun.

We started off by introducing each other, which got very interesting. Middle names were involved along with embarrassing childhood stories… I know my friends so much better now! Plus it was fun to hear what Eric see’s as the introduction appropriate details…

One of the games we played required the boys to draw our first dates. As you can see, Eric is quite the artist. Watch out MOMA I foresee a new stick figure show coming your way real soon. *wink wink*
Because I know you’re all trying to figure out what the heck he’s drawn up there… well, our first date consisted of a movie – Kung Fu Hustle – and then a few rounds of pool at the local billiards. And then, at the end of the night I did the classic Hitch move and jiggled my keys, and NOTHING HAPPENED!!! He tells me later that he hadn’t yet seen the movie Hitch because it came out while he was on his mission. Also, For the record, this was our first official date, but we’d been on many a group date previously. I am a lady after all.

At the very end of it all the boys read us ladies poems that they’d written beforehand, and we all turned into puddles. It was quite easily one of the funnest Valentine’s day parties I’ve attended. Thanks for having us Melita!!!


Eric’s poem to his silly love bug – hey, that’s me! //

10 Things I love About You

I love that when you work you hum an unrecognizable song
I love that you always look so beautiful whether your hair is short or long
I love that you introduce me to new foods like salads and couscous
I love how you can tell the difference between regular green and chartreuse
I love how patient you are when our kids for hours have been whalin’
I love how when I ask you, “Kelly who sings this song?”, you always guess VanHalen
I love how I can hear you giggling while watching TV when you think you’re the only one awake in the house
I love the holiday traditions you bring like cinnamon rolls and santa mouse
I love the fact that you succeed no matter the size of the endeavor
But most of all, I love the fact that we have each other forever.

just love // kelly
