It's Done... and Over... already

It started... it happened... and now it's officially over.

I met HIS parents (What? Did you think the "new guy" was history?).

He's asked me almost from the beginning to meet my parents, and I've been putting it off because my parents can be a bit eccentric or "different". I wanted "new guy" to meet my siblings first so he could see I have a "normal" family, LOL.

On Saturday, we were on our way to dinner (He *still* opens all doors for me!) and he brought up the subject again. He wants to take my parents out for dinner! I started to put it off again and he suggested *I* meet his parents first to show me his are a bit "different" (his words, not mine) too. They both were friendly to me and it really didn't feel uncomfortable.

Next weekend, we have plans for him to meet my sister, BIL and my niece. It'll be a triple date since my niece has a BF.

Other news:

"New guy" brought me these pretty flowers with a card. Aren't they gorgeous? He's so funny... While I went to the basement to get a vase, he says to me: "Am I a bad BF because I haven't bought you flowers in a vase?" What?! He's got to be kidding. I told him I had plenty of vases and actually preferred no more vases.


On Sunday, "new guy" came over with his weedeater and did all the weed trimming for me. I got into "trouble" because he had plans to mow his yard Sunday morning and then come over and do mine. But, I did mine Saturday afternoon before he picked me up for our date.

After the weed trimming, he helped me plant my planters and hanging pots. LOL, mostly he watched since he didn't know what to do. But, he did help some. He insisted on carrying the flats wherever I needed them, and swept up the dirt I managed to get outside the planters and all over the concrete.


Nancy commented on the earlier post about personal life interfering with school... Actually, no. "New guy" was/is really good about not bothering me on Monday and Tuesday nights (when I did my studying) and then making sure I had time to do my tests and such without his interference. He's so thoughtful and considerate!

Shari said...

Yup! The first couple lines made me wonder...esp. since you didn't mention him in your earlier post today!!!!
Sounds like a perfect weekend!!!

Terry said...

So cute! He's still a keeper in my book. Have you asked him if he has any bad habits that he's hiding because it's still the "sweet stage"? LOL

GoldenAngelsWorks said...

He definitely sounds like a keeper.

valerie said...

Why'd you have to go and scare people with that title! I think my heart stopped...I was all worried! Glad to hear that things continue to go well. Meeting the parents is scary! Glad you survived and it's behind you now.

Meeting the parents. Big step. Are we going to hear wedding bells? Glad you found a goog guy.

Did someone clone my DH and send him your way. I hope so. Sounds like you have found a real winner there.

Ranae said...

At first i thought you gave him the boot, lol

Nancy said...

OMG, the parents too??? Wow, what comes next? I thought my comment would get a reply, was waiting for an email all day!LOL Next time, hold off on the mowing, men like to do lawns.

Donna said...

My heart was in my throat. I thought, OH NO! Tell me isn't so. And you did. I love your pics. He is so much the keeper.

Meari,

I just read all about "new guy". I'm so happy for you!

Also have to say I'm jealous of your flowers! I tried to do the seed thing this year but I started too late and really didn't have a good place to start them. Not many have grown. Needless to say we will be flower shopping this weekend!

5footrunt said...

Aww, he is such the sweetheart. What a gentlemen. He is sounds just dreamy, lol.

CindyMae said...

I think that you succeeded well in keeping us all on edge! LOL Sounds like things are going really well, that is awesome! Love the pics!

Mel said...

Good job on scaring us all that it your title was about new guy. ;)
So glad to hear that it's still going so well!
What great flowers.

Kristin said...

He sounds wonderful...and the flowers are gorgeous!

Louisiana Momma said...

I am so excited for you.. I was hestitant to get too excited b/c I know how fickle men can be at times.. but now I am OFFICIALLY excited at the prospects for you.. he seems like a really good guy and he isn't fleeing under pressure.. and on top of that he refers to himself as your BF.. awesome.. good for you!! You deserve it.. l think all the horrors of dating help us appreciate the good men when we find that needle in a haystack :-)

Wishes for continued happiness in this relationship!

~~~Melinda said...

Good looking flowers there!!! The ones he bought AND the ones u plated!! Sounds great so far lol

Kim said...

He sounds WONDERFUL! I am behind on the posts because my hubby was home. But I know a few weeks ago, he hadn't kissed you yet...and now?? He does sounds like a true nice guy. The flowers are a dream. Being the old married women of almost 13 years, I love to read this! Keep us updated! BTW after 14 years together, my dh still opens doors for me.

Sharon said...

Girl, does he have a clone? LOL Lovely flowers! Your planters look beautiful!

Gabi said...

Phew...you had me scared for a moment. Thank god "new guy" is still in the picture. He sounds almost too good to be true. But...see...miracles happen. I liked the comment about your parents and why you wanted him to meet your siblings first. Cracked me up big time. You should meet MY parents...lol...then you know what eccentric means in its full extend.

Barbara said...

The flowers are divine. What a wonderful guy you've found! Hope he's a permanent fixture in your life.

Does this mean we all have to buy virtual 'new hats'?

Your planter pots are looking good.

Old Yankee Stitcher said...

Still sounding hopeful. Helping with yard work is definitely a plus. Handling the parental introductions is always scary. Thoughtful is always good. Keep being cautious though. CJ ok;-)

Debra said...

Good to hear that things are still going well with "new guy". The flowers are so pretty and so are the one you potted.

Glad to hear things are still going well, with meeting his parents and planning a meeting with some of your family sounds like things are moving along. He certainly sounds a keeper. Beautiful flowers, and your planted flowers are looking lovely too. Glad everything turned out ok with your dad, what a scare.
