Memorial Day Cookout and Dating update

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day and remembered the reason for which we had the day off for BBQing.  These holidays can be hard for me due to a friend dying in Iraq 7 years ago so I tend to try to keep busy on them.

Several weeks ago some girl friends and I started talking about having a cookout, where we decided my friend A would host since her neighborhood has a pool and grills.  Her guy was going to be the only male there, so a couple of weeks ago I mentioned bringing Mr. Banker and we both agreed it was a bad idea.  Until Saturday night, friend A and her bf realized he knows Mr. Banker. 

Small world!

So, Mr. Banker ended up coming to the cookout with me yesterday and it went REALLY well.  He seemed to pass the friend test... which is particularly difficult with one friend, Patrice.  She has never EVER said she liked any guy I've ever dated, but she said she likes Mr. Banker....after some time spent playing 20 questions with him.

I was definitely nervous about the cookout, after not being able to eat ANY solid foods all weekend.  ((Stress...)) But it went really well.  I ate a few bites of ribs--and was really excited that I could, a few bites of baked beans, potato salad, and macaroni and cheese.  I know that I was able to eat different foods than I normally am able to because I'd had a few too many drinks, but it was nice to eat and not get sick. 

I'm terrified of tomorrow's weigh in after all the drinks yesterday and my ice cream diet over the weekend :-/.

Me and Patrice yesterday


  1. Glad you had a good time girl!
