Let Me Tell The World...


Thirteen Things about Mariposa and IT Guy


Yummy (aka IT Guy) and I turn 5 years today! Yes, it's been five years folks, they couldn't believe it...I couldn't believe it, but it's true! We made it!!!

So, today, I would like to share to you 13 weird facts about Mariposa and the IT Guy! These things could have been the reason why we are still together despite ALL odds!

(1) I sent the IT Guy three white roses and a card when we were still friends...I mean, before "us". Yup...yup...I am THAT crazy before, well, I am still now. :D

(2) The IT Guy does not drink ALOT because he gets tipsy easily while I don't...so sometimes, people stare our table because he gets the iced tea while I get beer (or tequila)! LOL

(3) We both love to listen to music...and we have about the same type of music that we listen to.

(4) On some weekends, we drive south of the island...THAT is how we spend time together. So either we leave so early to see sunrise in our favorite spot....and wait for sunset on the road before we go home.

(5) We jog/ walk every Sunday morning!

(6) IT Guy is not a typical guy in a sense that he knows how to get me my stuff...like, he can buy me shoes/ bags/ dress perfectly! By that I mean, I love them, they fit me well and they ALL look good on me. I figured the reason for this is he usually accompanies me when I go shopping...so he knows my taste and style! LOL

(7) We both know our past...yup, the good ones and the dark ones and we have accepted them. I think this is one reason why we are so comfortable with each other.

(8) The IT Guy is 7 years older than me.

(9) IT Guy changes the songs in my iPod regularly...see, I don't care much about it...so before I go to work, he just puts it in my bag an if I need some music, I listened to it and feels good to listen to different mix of songs with the thought that he picked those for me! Then in the morning, he gets them back....

(10) With #9, yes, you can presume that he drives me to work and pick me up from work most of the time! I work in the evening and he works in day time...so after his work, he goes to the house...we usually have dinner together...then I go to work, and in the morning, he picks me up and drops me home before he goes to work... Yes, he deserves an award for that.

(11) He is the ONLY man whom I have courage to introduce to my parents as my BF. The others in the past were like they (my family) just figured it out...but IT Guy?! Ha! He was more formal and serious...and I love him for that. He was never intimated by my Mom (Mom is more intimidating than Dad!) or should I say...he managed it so WELL then.

(12) We are both crazy with online games!

(13) We are getting married next year!

Happy Anniversary. Our 40th is on Sunday [mother's day]
