Somewhere in the world BFG is doing something that I’m not. Which is yay because I like him experiencing things. However, tonight is…date night! First official one we’ve ever had, but we communicate so well that it’s just a continuation all over night. We’ve double dated with his friends on voice Skype and Cards Against Humanity, but nothing like a set date just for us. Only been 5 months.
So what will we do? Well, I’m thinking planning our house and designing pieces together. Note, he’s spooked himself before when discussing possible move-in but it’s something he constantly talks about now. So. I’m thinking we can have fun designing. We’re pretty different in our aesthetics – thankfully we can match them to each other. Date night begins at 4pm EST/10pm Germany.

…And now date night is over. So, it’s hard coming up with some kind of activity since he’s in Germany and YouTube isn’t really available to have popcorn night with. Doing some insanely difficult investigation online I found the idea of decorating homes, which is actually relevant since eventually I’ll be living with him. And, moreover, I wanted him to see how I decorate and what I enjoy. So, we created floorplans and decorated with RoomSketcher, which is really useful and fun. We (I) decided to create studio apartments and go from there. As his first time using an online creator, his was pretty bare and basic since he was looking at first place. Mine was far more elaborate since I’ve been designing for years. And I’m really, really lucky that BFG likes my feminine touches. Not a lot of storage because I think we should find those things in yard sales or secondhand jobs. Something to add character. And I love each of the chandeliers and lights. Oh, and keeping windowsills for the cats we will have.
