She's Back!

Remember my psycho racist ex-roommate? Well, I decided to look her up on twitter again. That bitch is still at it! Get over whatever beef you had with me. You were the one with problems. My next roommate loved me!
I decided not to blur out her last name or twitter handle, because I can be a bitch too. Fyi, psycho Asian I hate vanilla ice cream and that is why it was not eaten. Enjoy those extra calories!

4th of July

 Have I ever mentioned how lucky I got in the friend department?
I have been blessed with some amazing people in my life.

 I spent the 4th of July with Sarah, Shannon, and Sydney. Our plans changed, but I still had an awesome time with them in Door County. We went to the beach, ate pizza at the Wild Tomato, and got gelato.  We then headed downtown to watch the fireworks later in the night. It was nice spending time with all of them, because that rarely happens anymore.
 That was suppose to be the extent of my 4th of July weekend. My boyfriend was out of town and I had to work Saturday and Sunday.
 My friend Katie's parents had some people from Houston and Jacksonville in town and decided to throw a 5th of July party. I got sent home early from work on Saturday. When my dad found out I was heading to the party, he wanted to come.
 Katie had to work the next morning and agreed to be our designated driver. Katie's family and their friends know how to have a good time. I've become the adoptive daughter to them and their friends. The entire time my dad got to hear what a good time his daughter was and how much they love me. It was a nice ego boost.
 Katie, her boyfriend, and my dad ended up leaving that night. My drunk self got convinced to stay and party. I had to work at 9:30am the next morning and I figured I would just set my alarm and head to work.
 I woke up dead the next morning. I was handed a Bloody Mary and told to call in sick to work.
 I spent the day pontooning, talking, playing Cards Against Humanity, and trying to avoid 33 year old Justin. Who's Justin? Some guy that has a major obsession with me. It is starting to weird me out. After a fun day of activities the group decided to go get "ice." Ice is code word for a bar run. The youngest person in the group, besides myself, was 28. So I stayed behind to watch the drunk people with Kurt, Scott(not my dad), and Scott's girlfriend. After 20 minutes of babysitting, we got the drunk people to bed and everyone decided to sneak me into the bar.
  That is how 18 year old Rae ended up partying at a bar with people half my age...and a 28 year old.
We eventually stumbled home from the bar. People started to pass out, because flights needed to be caught the next morning. By 2am, the only people up were Amy #1 and Amy #2. Yes, I got dubbed Amy #2 after the party queen. That girl never sleeps and always has a good time. We ended up talking until 6am. Between our conversation we cooked breakfast (bagels and eggs), went on a hunt for cigarettes, started a bonfire (I don't even know how we managed that), and other stuff I don't even remember.

We finally crashed when the sun came up and got woken up a few hours later. We found out that we were going to the same Brewers game later that night. So we swapped numbers in case we wanted to meet up at the game. I just assumed we had fun drunk, but that I wasn't going to get a text from a 38 year old from Houston. During the 3rd inning, I got a text asking if I was hurting as bad as her from our night and that she wanted to meet up. I spent three innings next to her. We kept getting lectured by Katie's Grandma about how we would be enjoying ourselves more if we hadn't drank all weekend.

So that is how my uneventful weekend turned into a very eventful weekend. I never would have expected that showing up to a party on Saturday would lead me to head home on Monday.

The Boy

 I was enjoying the single life after getting out of a 2 1/2 year relationship and a rebound guy. I had no plans to find a guy and get into a relationship. I feel like it always works out that way. You stop looking for a relationship and all of a sudden you find yourself in one.

On May 30, my cousin Cody brought me to a bonfire. It was a bonfire with a bunch of his friends. I got bored playing beer darts so I decided to wander upstairs. Andy was up there and was making Bloody Marys. He offered to make me one and I decided to give them a shot. Afterwards, I didn't notice Andy that much. He made me take his turn during pool and teased me about drinking my Bloody Mary to slow.
 The next day Cody told me that Andy really liked me and had called dibs on me. I could not remember which friend Andy was. Oops. Cody started to invite me to small little get togethers at his place and of course Andy was there. We started texting back and forth. We both had super busy schedules and it was hard finding a time to hang out. So I invited him to my friend Sydney's birthday party on June 22. I was really nervous about this. I love my friends to death, but I never know how people will react to all of us together. Andy handled it like a champ and even said that our group of friends would be fun together(We did find out they are fun together). 
On June 23, we had our first official date. It involved Chinese food, Bloody Mary's(of course), and Maleficent.  My fortune cookie said "An exciting opportunity lies ahead if you are not timid." What a great fortune to get on a 1st date. I mentioned liking Star Wars and he wanted to watch them with me. We headed to my house and my parents ended up being awake. Nothing like meeting the family on your first date! We ended the night with a hug. He later texted me saying he was super nervous and should of kissed me.
 On June 24, he took me to a car meet and we went swimming with his friends. While in the hot tub he told me that I wanted me to be his girlfriend since the first time we met, but thought we should have a few dates before he asked. I said I would love to be his girlfriend and then we had our first kiss.

That is the story of how we became Andy and Rae. 
It happened so fast, but it has been a fun ride.
He's a really sweet guy and we have a lot of fun together.
I don't know if this is just a summer romance or a more permanent thing.
I did joke with him that we have to last until Labor Day, because we are going to a wedding together in August and he's going camping with me Labor Day weekend.
