Surgery is tomorrow, Meeting a Real Housewife of New Jersey, & Of course the Date. =)

Yes to all three. My fibroid removal surgery is tomorrow, I met Danielle Straub of the Real housewives of New Jersey, & had a great date! I’ll start with the romantic date.
The Date:

I have never seen a guy more nervous!! Apparently he never asks girls out to dinner so he was super nervous but was a complete gentleman. When I showed up to the restaurant I saw him standing there with the above rose in his hand. I’ve never gotten a rose on a first date!! He held the door open for me & we got our reservation & basically talked or 4 hours about everything under the sun. OH yeah I didn’t tell you guys about the MOST FUNNIEST THING EVER with CJ!! His mother works with my father & they are friends. What are the odds???? He did some research on me, like he found my facebook & his mom recognized the last name & the town I live in. I couldn’t believe it. It did tho make things a lil easier because we weren’t really strangers anymore. He’s an only child too & we sat and told each other our dramas, our likes, what superpower would you have, what time period you’d live in, & so much more. After dinner we walked to the pier & sat watching the geese in the Hudson & the sky was light up by the full moon.

It was probably one of the most awesome dates I’ve been on because it flowed. There weren’t any akward pauses. He told me I looked very beautiful in my polka dotted dress & held my hand so I could walk on the cobblestone in my heels. He kissed me too at the end of the date. I…I didn’t feel a spark or anything but it was the first date & he was really nervous. It was a nice date & we will see each other again. We made plans to play mini-golf after I felt better from the surgery and something a lil more casual. You can’t tell a guy no to the second date when he had brought you a rose. I don’t know where things are going to go with him but I agreed to a second date. He was too romantic. I’m looking forward to the next date & seeing if feelings develop. =)

Meeting Danielle Straub of the Real Housewives of New Jersey:

Well let me tell you about Ms. Danielle. Omg, she is a piece of work!! She walked in the room in Louboutin’s with the red sole & talked to us for about an hour before she signed our books. She talked about the drama and how when people are talking about her it only makes her more powerful. I COULDN’T believe the people that showed up with flowers for her?!?! This book is about the truth of her story. She did seem fake. Teresa didn’t seem fake at all. Danielle seemed a lil put on, but she worked the room & kept winking at people.

I told her she motivated me to call my friends out on their drama & basically I put the book on the dinner table. She high-fived me & told us all that you gotta live your lives & be genuine. I don’t care if she’s the villain in the story, it was still awesome to meet her. She signed my book, “Pay attention pluhleeze”. It’s so weird now watching the TV show because I’ve met them. OH & Danielle’s daughters came too!! They are so pretty in person. Danielle’s last words were like watch the season…it’s going to get real good! =)

Surgery is tomorrow:

The long wait I’ve had for this surgery has been driving me crazy. For new followers, I found another fibroid in my right breast & I’m having it removed tomorrow morning. It’s not big like the other I had, it’s small but it’s still a surgery. I’m calm about it because I know it has to come out because I can’t afford for it to get any bigger. The surgeon is my surgeon who removed my gall bladder so I know him. This surgery means a lot of changes to me because I will be changing my diet starting tomorrow. I can’t go through this every other year. Surgery is a hard thing to go through regardless of what your having done. I learned that if you listen to what they tell you & remain calm it’ll be over in a few hours. I’m trying to remain calm. I did cry this morning, but it’s only natural to be upset. It’s almost over. My mom is coming with me & my aunt & my friend Debra. I think the harder part is the waiting.

I do get sick from anethesthia so I don’t know how I’m going to feel tomorrow but I will try to post to let you guys know I’m okay. =) Thank you for all your support through this. I didn’t tell many people in my real life so to get that cyber hug & that shoulder was beautiful & I appreciated it. I hope everything goes okay. I really do. Aurora will sleep again for a lil while, but I’ll be back. =)

I'm glad CJ is a gentleman, I hope his research doesn't bring him to your blog next :o . Good luck with the surgery I'm sure it will go fine all the new signs say so.

I watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It's very cool that you got to meet Danielle, even if I do think she's completely nuts. Lol.

Hope the surgery goes well!

incessantdieter said...

Sounds like he thought the date out and wanted to see what you would like. I think that is a keeper in the making. The little things that people care enough to notice or show you is what makes a lasting relationship. Like the flower and the walk after dinner, small to some but when you think about it, it is the small things that keep you going each day.
Good happy thoughts for your surgery tomorrow.

Madeleine said...

I am so happy to hear about your wonderful date!!

You truly deserved to be with a gentleman. And ya know, sometimes sparks take a lil while to develop. After all, that's what makes it fun: getting to know each other and learning to love certain things about a person. That leads to the chemistry. ;)

Good luck with your surgery, sweetie!! I am crossig my fingers that everything is going to be okay. I'm here for you. xoxoxo!!

Heather Taylor said...

Oh, that date sounded so romantic! I love that he brought you a rose, it's such a classic gesture you just don't see anymore sadly enough.
