Ben and I will be off at 5am in the morning to go white water rafting! WOOOOO HOOOO!!!! I am so pumped about this. We get to spend about three hours out on the lake in the rapids, then the rest of the time on a boat cruise. Since we are leaving so early, I imagine that I will be SLEEPING on part of the boat cruise! FUN TIMES!
Now onto some of the conversation tidbits that I have had with Ben. He has been so sweet and adorable with the whole WLS stuff. He was looking over my list of things that I wanted to accomplish, and he remarked on how many I wanted to do. He commented very specifically on a few of them. One was to look good in a two piece bathing suit. Then I had crossed that out, and wrote to look good in a one piece bathing suit. He replied that he thought I would look cute in a two piece bathing suit. Another goal was to be light enough that a man could pick me up and give me a piggie back ride. He said that he was certain that he could give me a piggie back no problem. He said he had given girls that he had dated in the past (who were bigger than me) piggie back rides. (Can I also tell you what a relief it is that he has dated girls who were bigger than me! Not to mention that his mom said I was the first girl he dated that was on his same intellectual level.)
Tonight, he complimented me again how beautiful I looked. At the end of the night, he said lets try something. He sat down in a chair, and asked me to sit in his lap. I got tears in my eyes and told him I was just not ready yet. He hugged me, reassurred me, and told me when I was ready to try he would love to have me sit in his lap. (Can I tell you how much I love this guy!!!)
I do have another thing I want to add to my "to do list"....parasailing! Perhaps I can knock parasailing and zip lining both off late spring.
Also, booked tickets today to go to Seattle election weekend. We are also going to drive up to Vancouver, B.C.
Life is good. God is Great!
