If you have not been to my blog lately, take a look around! My super talented friend Landi spent a lot of time making it look like an actual blog! She is amazing and I am so THANKFUL that she took the time to do this for me.
Last week I was super sick so I did not feel like writing anything. Had I written something I would have put everyone into depression. I'm glad to be back and better!
In the past few days so much has happened that I am so excited to tell you about. Since November a special little someone has been a part of my life. The weekend I got sick which was March 2-3 I took Ryan to Butler to meet my family, The Cowans, and my best friend Lindsey. He handled my parents amazing especially since I was passed out sick and he had to take them on by himself! Mom and Dad had him doing all kind of things for them! I woke up at one point and he was working on a printer. I'm thinking after visit number one he is in good shape.
The Cowan's have been my second family for years now. It is very important to me to have them included in EVERY area of my life. Mrs. Cowan of course has a HUGE impact with what she thinks of everything. I have always looked to her for advice so when it comes to men that is no different. I finally talked with her last night and she of course said she approves! In typical Cowan form she says "Lara Ellen he is so sweet but now you have got to stop being so mean and bossy"!! We all know that I am a bossy one....I guess that's an area I need to work on.
I still have not talked to my Lou but I am sure she thinks he is wonderful too!
Not only did I take Ryan to meet my family but I drove this past Saturday to his hometown to meet his parents. I think I passed the test. I love Alabama, jewelry, shopping, and talking so i think his Mom appreciates all of those things!! I brought his Dad doughnuts (as I have learned over time Locke men like them some doughnuts). I think that got me some points with the Dad!!
We had a wonderful lunch on the lake then went site seeing. Check out our journey!
Needless to say "Meet the Parents" weekends went great! I'm glad it's over. Now let's see how the rest of this relationship road goes!
