our new favorite past time

one of the many many things that i love about my relationship with Chris is that he likes to hang out with me.
now i know this may seem strange, but in my past relationships i didn't feel this comfort. i always felt i had to offer something, entice "the flavor of the month" with something fun to get them to hang out with me. a sporting event, food, concert, movie etc...
i remember when he picked me up from the airport last july after my trip to new mexico and we agreed that he should stay with me for the whole week. i thought "what am i going to do with him?" "how am i going to entertain him?" "how am i going to get him to stay?"
well he has yet to leave. our week long trial essentially turned permanent when his lease was up in september.
and well, it still blows my mind that he likes to hang out with me. he's perfectly content just hanging out on the couch cuddling, talking, watching a movie. he's just happy with me there.

a couple of weeks ago we were bored with the TV and decided to go see what we have in the coat closet in the world of games. we decided on domino's.
i've decided that this will be one of our favorite past time activities. you know that time when one day we'll look back and reminisce and i'll say "remember when we would listen to music on your ipad and play domino's?" i imagine this conversation in a few years when we have a kid and remember our time when our family was just the two of us.

i'm working on appreciating Chris. enjoying and embracing the love that he gives me everyday. i feel so lucky to have his love. for his ability to make things simple. to clam me down when i am freaking out.

to remember the fun we have playing domino's.

Is that Lucy Lobo I see on the cup? I recognize those Lobo cups because that was my "glassware" while I was a bachelor. Go Lobos!

That's what I want to find in a guy..one where I'm not freaking out like you used to and trying to figure how what we're going to do, where we're going to go, etc. One who just wants to BE with me and hang out. When my ex and I first got married and I was pregnant with our first son, we played Yahtzee a lot.:) That's one of my fave memories.

I have never played dominoes. I've always thought it had something to do with math and the thought of that just freaks me out.

Uno is our favorite. No math, just matching numbers and colors. We play at warp speeds.
