Making Time for Us

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I’m 110 years old, in your arms. I don’t want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. -Derek, Grey’s Anatomy

Even though things have been crazy busy for Match and I, we’ve still managed to change up our nightly routine, and take advantage of the time when he’s not in class. Our schedules are tight, but I think we’ve been pulling it off pretty well. Not only that, but I am motivated by the fact that this crazy schedule is temporary. Match and I want to spend our lives together, and so this brief period of time where we don’t see each other that much will just be a blip on the radar.

So last night Match and I managed to throw together a nice dinner for my cousin, her husband and their two boys. We had a great time-Match was busy in the kitchen with me, he was stationed at the kitchen faucets and while I was cooking dinner, he was washing dishes. I love that I don’t even have to ask him for help, he just picks up a dish and starts washing.
He played video games with my little second cousin, who was thrilled to have someone to beat. When he wasn’t playing video games, my cousin’s adorable baby, 10 month old lil squirt, was crawling all over Match giving him kisses. He’s definitely won my cousin and her family over.

After dinner, Match and I went to bed talking about rings. You would have thought I’d died and gone to Date Girl Heaven. 🙂 Match wants me to get my ring size so that when he does get ready to propose, I don’t have to take my ring back to get resized. I like that idea, but I told him I definitely didn’t want to be the type of couple that picks out the ring together and there are no surprises. I wouldn’t dream of denying my dear readers a juicy story of a great engagement! He told me not to worry, the only thing he wants is the size. He knows my taste and my style, but he is determined that when it comes down to him buying the ring and popping the question, I will be completely surprised.

I honestly have no idea when he’s going to do it, but from the way he has been talking, I feel like it could be at any time. I’d like to think we are going to wait just a little bit longer, maybe till we’ve been dating a year, but it honestly doesn’t matter to me. If he popped the question tomorrow, you all know what the answer would be. 🙂
