Saturday morning

Well, as my loyal readers know...I have a date this afternoon. And since it is with a complete stranger, I'm a little nervous. I even went to my pastors yesterday afternoon and asked for some advice...I mean, they're "mom" and "dad" and I totally screwed up the last time I tried to date...although to be honest, he wasn't very honest. I only got to talk with Mrs. Pastor and she said, 'Keep your eyes open" Good enough. Pastor came in at the tail end and got in on the conversation and I think I've already screwed up some....cuz he asked if we were going with another couple...ooops,'re meeting at his sis's house and then going up to Doc's and I thought that would be safe enough/public enough. Although to be honest, his question made me feel protected and watched out for. I decided not to doll up for this, though. I'm dressed nice, I did curl my hair a bit with the curling iron, and that's about it.

of course, I'll let all of you know what happens.

ok. Going to go play the weekend game a bit before I go on the clock.

Good luck on your date. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, but I doubt you need any luck.

The paster and his wife sound like lovely, protective people. How lucky you are to have them for temperature checks at times like this.

Popped in from Michele's. Enjoy!

Speaking from experience, Captain? {{said with a rather cheeky eyebrow wraggle}}

Aww, good luck on your date!! You know, it's funny, as nerve-wracking as those first dates are, if they result in a lasting, loving, long-term relationship those are the times you look back on with such fondness and remember the electricity and newness. I hope you have a really great time!

Here from Michele's :)

Mike said...

Hope the date goes well. Michele sent me.

How exciting!
Enjoy your date, I'm sure it will go well.
Here via Michele's will come back tomorrow for the update!

I'm here from Michele's. I have to get that out of the way first or I forget..

I hope you have a wonderful time on the date though I agree with Mr. Pastor, double with someone you know on dates with people you don't know. It not only protects you but also, if there are uncomfortable lulls in conversation you have a friend there to help you out during those first awkward moments with a person you don't know.

Either way... good luck and you are lucky to have the Pastors in your life.

Good luck on your date! Yep, first dates are always so scary... I'm glad I'm past that stage :)

Well, let us know how it went... good luck

Have fun on the date. See if you enjoy each other right off the bat.

Michele sent me.

utenzi said...

Like the others are saying, Ciera, good luck on the date. Hopefully this fellow will be better than the last guy. Honest, at least.

Michele sent me, and that ensures that I'm safe too!
