This Weekend I… (v.4)

Glorious. I had a youth pastor growing up that would use words like this, as well as buff and gnarly, to describe great things, great blessings from the Lord. And I can’t think of a better way to describe this weekend with my fiance. I drove up to spend time with him and after a month of not seeing each other, it was time we needed.

I knew it was going to be a good weekend when I saw a C-5 fly by on my drive up.

Friday night we went to dinner at a little Mexican restaurant with some members of his class. Then it was off to Monster Trucks which brought up some great memories of watching them at Qualcomm Stadium as a child.

Seriously felt so good to see my man again.

We then ended up at a Karaoke bar for the rest of the night and into the wee hours of the morning. This was my first encounter with The Beer Tower.

Saturday we ate some of the best breakfast tacos I’ve ever had at Fuzzy’s. Then went to a kids’ movie because it’s what we do best. It was such a beautiful day that we headed back to base for a little cruise…

And, of course, made a pilgrimage to the beloved, B-52.

After a much-needed nap, it was time for sushi and Hibachi. And you guessed it, we dressed for date night.

One of the guys we took with us is from Germany and had never been to an Asian restaurant in America. We fixed that problem. He loved it.

We then went to a local theater to take in a presentation of the musical “Grease.” Probably the only musical known to man that I have seen, but my fiance has not. Needless to say, we have scheduled a time for him to see the movie version.

After the play I decided to play my best “Coolest Fiance Card” and took the guys to Sonic for ice cream. Again, the German had never had a Sonic Blast. We fixed that problem too.

Sunday was a sleep-in kind of day. To wrap up our weekends together, we always have breakfast at Cracker Barrel. A ritual that helps ease the pain. It’s always tough to say goodbye, but it helps when you’re nose deep in a stack of pancakes and chocolate milk.

During this time of our engagement, we live for weekends like this. It is uncommon for an engaged couple to spend this much time apart before walking down the aisle. However, the love that my fiance and I share is so far beyond anything that comes across our path. Nothing can ever separate us, neither long distance nor the jealous people who doubt our devotion. Our love is ordained by the Lord and what He brings together, no man can tear apart. So for all of you haters out there… Don’t poke the bear. Seriously. We are so completely bound together by the grace and mercy of our Father.

And for that, I am eternally grateful.
