Letters to Former Single Self, and [Giveaway Winner!]

Well, the end of this week has totally went downhill as far as my blogging went, but in my personal life is went BEYOND great.  I'll be posting an update on what I'm talking about soon! :)

So with that said, I'm going to skip right on into today's post and the giveaway winner from the Monogram Sweatshirt Giveaway!

Today I'm linking back up in the final segment of

This week's questions are:
Describe your first date with your now current partner. 
Did you feel any "butterflies" on your first couple of encounters? 
Did you have any indication it would later be the "real deal?"

First Date:  Ya'll will laugh when I tell you this, but B and I didn't have a "first date" until about two months into our dating.  There were just some circumstances and reasons that I'll leave personal, but we didn't make our first public appearance until 11-11-11. 

On the date, we went with his entire family to eat and then to the Casting Crowns concert.  And some of you might be thinking how weird it is that our first date was with his family and we weren't alone.  But that's just how B and I are, we do a lot with our families, so it's completely not weird for he and I.  (And we had OUR first date not too long after that! :)  Alone this time! ha!)

Now, did I feel butterflies?  Well, if I did.. those were some HUGE butterflies.. LOL.  I was feeling LOTS of emotions with B on our first few visits.  In fact, I acted like a complete idiot the night we met. 

Some of you know we met via Facebook, chatted on there, text awhile, and eventually got the plans up to "meet" in person.  He was going to come to my house.  You can read my entire story about this on my sidebar under Our Love Story.  But just a quick funny about that night- B pulled into my driveway and instead of being a lady and waiting at the door for him- I bolted.  Like I RAN (almost!) down my sidewalk and went straight into a hug with him.  I look back in hindsight and wonder why he didn't get right back in that truck and pull away, but he didn't.  And he likes my hugs! ;)

Now, did I know this was the real deal?  Yes, without a doubt.  The night we met and we sat and talked and got to know each other more, I knew this man was someone who belonged in my life.  I'm lucky, lucky, lucky that I was right and he's my forever love now! :)

Well, that concludes the letters to my former single self.  I had SO much fun with this and hope I can find another link-up like this soon! :)

Now, *drumroll* it's time to announce the winner of my Monogram Sweatshirt Giveaway!  First though, I want to give a big THANKS for all you ladies participating and joining in.  This was a fun giveaway for me too and I just know the winner will love her new sweatshirt! :)
