The Ring

Here it is. I tried posting it last time and guess it didn't work out. And we have matching ones.

In other news, hung out with The Guy and his partner the other day. He talked about how we need to at least have something to commemorate our domestic partnership as it is a way to affirm it in front of friends. I'm going to bring it up to my guy as I think it would be fun, but he's very low key. Maybe a neutral point? We were trying to think of our friends...

The Guy and Rob
Jack Off Buddy and his guy
J & B
Mike's coworker
Mike's cousin and aunt?
My cousin(s)/aunt/uncle - 1 to 6 of them
My sissy from work

We had a nice dinner The Guy and I ran to Trader Joes to make. Chatted about everything and anything with him and his man.

Also hung out with my cousin that I'm closest with and another more distant cousin, Marquel, whom I've never mentioned before. He's like 3 years younger and we never really chatted until the past couple of years. He was so interesting. He said he knew I was gay all along, we chatted about that, he asked what it was like, what it was like not being attracted to girls, whether I found girls hot at all, and he's just one of those really interested people who tries to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts. Sex came up. He recently had his first time with his girlfriend. He thinks I'm one of those been there, done that types. Talked about family, friends, and school. Lots more too.

Headed there in a week. Super excited. What's there to do? I have my list of places, but maybe Chicagoans would like to chime in.

Put a ring on it

If you like it, then you should put a ring on it, and that's what he did today.

And I'm happier than Beyonce could be.

I knew it was coming. In typical fashion, he was intrigued by the ring I'd been wearing, then asked me my size the other day when he was shopping on Kohl's website, and then this morning as he was prepping for the day and I was grabbing breakfast he put a ring on it and told me it was mine.

And tomorrow we will officially be domestic partners.

North to Alaska

Lovely 7 day cruise to Alaska with some time in Seattle.

Seeing glaciers and icebergs up close were surreal and breathtaking. Searching for Sarah Palin and Russia were also highlights of the trip.
