Our story starts in 2013. We were introduced by a mutual friend via a text that I insisted she didn't send. A spontaneous road trip to China Town for dumplings became our first date. We brought dumplings back to his EMS station that night because they were just that good we had to share.
One year and two days after we were back at the station with more dumplings and the same friends. Doug got down on one knee. I yanked the ring out the box before he could finish asking. Then we called our moms.
Doug and I are both the youngest of two children in our families. We enjoy spending time with family and friends. Summer barbecues in his mom's backyard. New Year's Eve at his brother's house. Boxing Day dinner with my mom and sister. Every year we drive down to Pennsylvania to have birthday dinner with our friends.
We like to collect and build large LEGO sets. We are currently working on building a full city block. Doug takes all of the bag number ones. I get all of the twos. I find his missing pieces. Doug fixes my mistakes. We make a good team.
Together we would offer a home filled with kisses and cuddles. Unconditional love, support, and child-friendly DUPLO blocks. We are just two LEGO lovers eager to add a little one to our family of builders. We have chosen adoption as the piece that fits our family.
I got another night of our “loaner cat” Lucy this week. She enjoyed the extra playtime and snacks.
The highlight of the week was my friend’s housewarming-crab-fest. The adults cracked crabs and caught up, while the kids ignored the seafood and hit the slip n’ slide.
This was the first time I successfully cracked my own crabs, lol.
This past weekend was nice and quiet, no plans. While Doug was at work on Saturday, I decided to take some time and bake. I love baking and cooking but have been short on time lately to do it. I tried out two new recipes. Peanut Butter brownies and slow cooker Beef Roast for Sunday Dinner.
I started an online class to learn ASL. I had wanted to learn since college, but I had transferred out to a larger school before I had the chance. My niece promised to help me practice. :)
Sunday, Doug and I took care of some DIY. We replaced our bathroom sink’s faucet. By “We”, I mean Doug, lol. I mainly handed him tools and paper towels when needed. I make a great assistant!
