Dress: c/o Madam Rage   Belt: Pacsun   Heels: Rue 21   Ring: c/o Oasap

So before I give you your daily dosage of Life with Linda (I think that's what I'll call my journal-like entries), is this dress not gorgeous or what? I've got a thing for hi-low hems, but teal too? You know it's won my heart for sure! Also, I'm really happy with these shoes. I've been wanting some black, chunky heels for the longest time. When I saw these babies on sale for $5 you better believe I snatched them up. I'd been watching them go down in price and I was lucky enough to snag the last pair left!


On to Life with Linda...haha, well yesterday was a really good day. A fantastic one actually. I'm still smiling just remembering it. Which is funny since looking back, it's not as if we did that much. I met up with Patrick after work and we just wandered around the mall talking and catching up. It had been a week since we'd last seen each other, so there was a good amount to talk about.


Then we went to the college campus and walked around hand in hand as he showed me where the buildings were, and where I'd probably have most of my classes. Its nice to get a feel for where I'll be starting soon! We found our way to the volleyball sand pits and the first thing I did was kick of my sandals and bury my feet. Haha, we sat in the shade together and exchanged stories like that, and when we left, it almost felt like we'd been at the beach or something since we were coated with sand! It was a good time.


However, the day wasn't over yet, so he came over and had dinner with my family. It was very chill and laid back. He's hit it off with my parents pretty good. Plus, he helped dad with a computer problem since he's a techie guy. Like I informed him, that scored some brownie points.


Next (I know, it sounds like a LONG time together, but it seemed to fly by!), we went to Miracle Hot Springs, a really nice place nearby that's got naturally heated pools. Its not so much a playful-swimming place as a chill-and-relax place. We lounged in the warm water and played chess on the cement blocks that were there. Seriously, they've got chess in the water for you to play with! It was funny because I pretty much kicked his butt. He was actually enjoying it, and said he admired how intelligent I was. And what he told me next is still making me smile.


"I love how much depth there is to you. I've never met a girl who's like that!"
That has got to be the best compliment I've ever received. Because while he'll occasionally tell me sweet things about my appearance, that's not what he focuses on. He's really taken time to get to know me, and that means something far more.
When we got back to my house, we stepped outside and leaned against his car and stared up at the stars. With some Jack Johnson playing on his car stereo for background music, he softly sang along into my ear. It was almost like being serenaded. Did I mention that he's a music major? Yes, he plays violin, piano, and he can sing! Triple threat right there ladies. :)
