Something Happened!

I was beginning to fear that my life had become completely boring. Thankfully Riley said we could have our dinner party Friday night. I got the idea for a dinner party from my friend Frankie. I told Riley about it and she told her dad and he thought it was a cool idea. However, Riley thought we should each have a date. I reminded her of our pact, but she said that her date would be her dad and mine could be Aaron. I'll admit I had a huge smile on my face at that idea.
I couldn't wait for school to be over on Friday, though it was weird to go home with Kit and not straight to Riley's like I have been doing for a few weeks. Anyway, I watched TV until it was time to get ready. I decided to go with my plaid skirt and denim jacket (with a shirt underneath, of course).

Aaron greeted me at the door and said I looked "lovely." Riley gave me a hug and we tried to pretend we were grown-ups and made small talk. Uber boring, I might add, but it was still fun.
Sean, Riley's dad, cooked steaks and Riley and I put together a salad. Soon it was time to eat.
 We talked about school for a little bit. Sean is a science teacher at the high school my sister, Elizabeth, goes to. He has a lot of funny stories to tell.

After the table was cleared, Riley and I set it up for dessert. Aaron made chocolate lava cupcakes.
I think we look pretty darn cute! Riley suggested that the next time we have a dinner party Aaron and Sean would have to go as a couple, and she and I would. I think that would be funny!

After dessert, we played some card games. Aaron tried to teach us poker, but Riley and I were hopeless. So we stuck with Uno. I won twice in a row! Aaron won the last game. I think he cheated. I hated to go home, but Riley had a dentist appointment in the morning so I couldn't spend the night. Aaron walked me home since it was pitch black outside.
"I had so much fun!" I told him as we walked.
He said he had fun, too. He even kissed me on the cheek goodnight! Is it wrong to have really enjoyed that? He's 28, but he looks so much younger, and he is so hot! I feel silly having such a crush on him, but it's really exciting, too. It's my first major crush (Andy Wharton who?).

All in all it was a really great night and totally grand to have something to actually blog about. Oh, JJ wanted me to put in a quick announcement that her new baby sister will be arriving any day. Even though she wanted another little brother, she is super excited. And Halloween is almost here!


  1. Oh - a dinner party! What fun! You and Riley look lovely, and I love how you set up the table.

    Aaron sounds like a great guy. It's too bad he's so much older than you, but then, who knows? Maybe he'll still be single by the time you're 18? One can dream!


  2. Thanks, Sophie! Trust me, I am dreaming about that! It's only 6 more years until I turn 18.


  3. Salut, Emily!
    Dinner parties can be fun or not, depending on who is there. It looks like yours was fun, though.
    Aaron seems great. He somewhat reminds me of my friend Julien. Guys like that don't come around very often.
