Meets the Parents! EEk!

Sooo tonight HotBoston is meeting the parentals!! Scary! Only reason why I say this is because they're still hung up on ExBoyfriend. They keep hoping and praying we'll get back together but it ain't happening!

HotBoston is totally nervous! He's even making some appetizers and bringing them over to the house. Hopefully dinner won't be akward. My dad is always trying to come off all protective and stuff. Sometimes it's seriously annoying and rude. I told him to be on his best behavior. I am not worried about my mom too much. She's usually the easy one.

I think HotBoston will be fine. They'll see what a wonderful guy he is and love him! (hopefully) Wait, I know they will...

I'll keep you updated.

Valentine's Day

Man, this week has been crazy! I have been so busy school wise, but also with my internship. We hosted a CEO breakfast on Thursday for the WalkAmercia fundraiser in May and I have been busy planning and organizing the event. Moving along....

So Valentine's Day was awesome! I went over to HotBoston's apt while he was at work. I cooked a homemade italian sausage pizza (his fav) and made dessert. I set up his room with these great smelling tea candles and fake (that looked very much real) rose petals. I stocked his fridge with Coronas (also his fav) and set up a mini picnic.

He came home and was totally surprised. He kept saying on and on how I was awesome and that I knew him so well. He was so exhausted from work and he loved coming home to such a surprise. A little later, Victoria had a secret for me to share with All in all, I was so glad he appreciated everything.

For my gift, he gave me a full day at this awesome European Spa. I get a manicure, pedicure, facial, full body massage, etc. That had to be the best gift ever! It was very appreciated. I can't wait to set my appointment because I have never been to a spa like that. I mean I get my nails done but never have had a professional massage or facial. I am so excited.

Well I hope everyone else had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

It's Official!

HotBoston and I are officially together! The other night he sat me down and had "the talk" with me. He told me that when we first started seeing each other, he did not want a serious relationship. The more and more we hung out, he realized that I was someone "special" and he couldn't pass something great up. I melted. It was probably one of the best nights of my life.

So now I am planning something special for him for Valentine's Day. He has always hated the holiday and I want this one to be one he'll never forget. I plan on doing something small and romantic. His favorite food is pizza, so I am actually going to make him a homemade pizza and write something cute with the toppings. His fav beer is Corona, so I plan to stock his fridge and set his apartment with candles. I want to do something else but I am having a hard time thinking of something else. Anyone have any suggestions?

I also just had my meeting with the March of Dimes. I snagged a really good internship with them for the semester so I am extremely happy about that. I will pretty much be planning and executing WalkAmerica which is held in May. I am definitely going to be a busy girl. On top of that, my PR Campaigns class has taken on the Boys & Girls Club as our client. That's something I look forward to as well.

So I have just finished tweeking up my resume, which by the way was hard to keep to one page. This week I am going to start sending them out & hoepfully something good will bite. It's starting to sink in more and more that I am going to be out on my own. My college career has been a four year party and it's almost last call!

I just had one of the best weekends in a long time! HotBoston and I took advantage of the holiday weekend. We wined and dined, rented a movie, and just enjoyed each other's company. HotBoston also took me golfing for the first time. I always thought golf was one of the most boring sports ever, but it was actually pretty fun. I didn't even know how to "properly" hold the clubs, so HotBoston had to "show" me how to do it. Very sexy! He also made me french toast for breakfast (one of my favs) and made me feel like a total princess. I just love that new relationship feeling! It's so refreshing.

And to answer some questions that were brought up in my previous post, I no longer am stressing about the "G" word. HotBoston brought it up on his own. He casually threw the word out there, in front of me, to his buddies. I guess that settles that.'s the second week into the LAST semester of my college career. I am very excited about this semester's line up. I am most excited about my Public Relations Campaigns class. We're taking on the local Boys & Girls Club as our client and coming up with a whole campaign for them. I'm also crossing my fingers on a possible internship with the March of Dimes this semester as well. It looks pretty promising, but we'll see.

I can't believe that in a short few months I can going to be let loose into the real world. I am finishing up some last minute touches on my resume and sending them out to agencies within the next week. It's all so scary and exciting at the same time!

Speaking of scary, I have TONS of work to start on so I must get to it!

What's with the G word?

HotBoston and I are still seeing each other. The more and more we're together, the more "serious" everything gets. We still have not made it "official" by giving each other titles, but it is safe to say we are exclusive. We are so perfect together. We compliment each other so well. I have never been the kind of girl to look for a younger guy, but I think I hit the jackpot here. He is much more mature than ExBoyfriend and the Ex has 6 years on HotBoston.

One thing I don't get about HotBoston is that we pretty much each other's significant other, but he hates the mention of girlfriends. A lot of his buddies have serious girlfriends and HotBoston always makes a smart comment about how he hates girlfriends. When we first started hanging out, I made it a point to tell HotBoston I wasn't looking for another boyfriend because I had just ended my relationship with the Ex. He also mentioned that he wasn't looking for a girlfriend either. But now that we are together more and more and we have taken everything to another level, it kind of bothers me that he makes those comments about girlfriends. I don't want to bring it up and complicate everything, but I just wonder if he says it to get a reaction out of me or if he really thinks that way.

Sometimes I think he is just trying to get a reaction out of me. I don't want to bring up the subject of our "titles" because maybe I feel like he'll back away from us. I mean does it need to be discussed? Or should I just leave it alone and just go with the flow like I have been?

What's a girl to do?
