Long time, no post! How is everyone doing? I've still been reading, of course, but I had a busy busy weekend so I haven't had a chance to post.
So, where do I even begin?!
Well, Friday night I went with my parents to a charity ball at my best friend Brooke's church. It included dinner and dancing and a silent auction and was a lot of fun.

Then, Saturday afternoon was Brooke's sister-in-law Katie's surprise baby shower. It is their first son and they are very excited--due in April :-) Then, the real excitement began! I drove straight to Selinsgrove, PA to meet up with B and another couple I know for a double date!
B & I at dinner <3>
We went to BJ's Restaurant for dinner, where I had cornbread and a pulled pork BBQ sandwich (my fav!), and then we wanted to go see a movie. When we got to the theater, the next showings weren't until 10:30ish, so we had about an hour to spare. So, the other 3 suggested heading over to Friendly's for ice cream! At first, I was like whaaat, but then I realized you know what? This is what being normal means. This is what normal college kids do! So, we went to Friendly's and Ben and I shared a mint cookie chip sundae with whipped cream & chocolate sauce.... yummy :-)
Then we saw the movie "The Crazies", mostly because Amber really wanted to see it. I'm not really into that sort of movie (horror/zombie/violent), but it was still fun to be with B and just enjoy the night. After that, B came back to my apartment with me and we snuggled and watched a movie together, and slept in each other's arms. It was perfect.
Sunday, we slept in a bit, and then B took me out to brunch at a local place. I got an egg & cheese sandwich on an english muffin with a side of fruit salad and 2 cups of coffee! Then we did various little things, like shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target, going to the car wash, and buying wine from a local winery! Then B showed me his place and introduced me to his roommates, and we watched Canada beat the U.S. in Ice Hockey at the Olympics haha.
Then, Sunday night, B and I went grocery shopping together and then he came to my apartment and cooked me a delicious meal of pasta with chicken, mushrooms, cheese, onions, and tomatoes. Plus garlic bread and red wine.
cookin' up a storm!
It was superb. The weekend ended with us sleeping together in my cozy bed, then waking up together, and then the sad part--saying goodbye.
I am honestly in shock about how well things are going with this guy. He is perfect for me in every way. We laugh together, have intelligent conversations together, and I feel comfortable talking about my ED struggles with him and know that he is here to support me, not judge me. B is coming to visit me this Sunday and Monday, and I honestly cannot wait!
In other news, I had another weigh-in and was shocked to find out I had LOST weight. Honestly, I felt like I ate so normally and naturally this weekend, but obviously it wasn't enough. My body is wacky and needs MORE than the average person, so I need to remember that. My parents were not pleased with this news, and my mom is threatening to take me out of yoga, etc. So, I am going to work very hard this week to make weight gain my number 1 priority.
Well, I hope everyone has been having a great week, and I will post again soon :-)
