Recently, I learned about love languages thanks to Starr. I learned that my primary love language is quality time, which now makes a lot of sense. I never minded the efforts required in long distance relationships, but I always expected a certain level of communication. When a major part of long distance requires being able to communicate, I would count on texts throughout the day and phone calls at night for reassurance that things are going okay. When that starts to dip, I would begin to worry, and now I understand why. However, nothing makes me happiest than just being able to spend time together, even if it means just being next to each other and doing our own thing. Bloop bloop…
This past weekend, I hung out with Jeremy in the San Jose area. Saturday started off as a lazy day of driving over to a sleepy Jeremy and napping together until it was nearly 0200pm. We tried Poki Bowl for lunch (Jeremy’s first time having poke!), grabbed boba from Tea FM (a place that serves Thai Tea, which Jeremy thinks is hard to find in San Jose. HUH!? >.>), roamed around Target, watched The Walk, played games at Round 1 (Jeremy sure enjoyed rubbing in my face that he beat me in every game. JERK! >:[), and had a super late feast at Buffalo Wild Wings (I barely made a dent in all that we ordered since I stuffed myself with popcorn during the movie. Sorry babe! :P).
Even though we did quite a lot, I only took one picture on Saturday. It is funny since Jeremy seems to judge how much I am enjoying myself by the amount of photos I snap for future blogging purposes. On the contrary, I had a lot of fun. Heck, I feel happy just waking up next to him in the mornings. :) </cheesiness>
On Sunday, Jeremy’s brother invited us to go to the farmers’ market held on Facebook’s campus, so we met up with his family and friends there. (From a text I oversaw, his brother said it would be great blog content for karen0z. Ha!) The farmers’ market recently opened on October 4 and will be open year-round every Sunday from 1000am-0200pm.
The market was a little smaller and less crowded than I had expected. However, it was pretty cool that there was a booth that provided sunscreen, another booth that provided $5 Moola vouchers ($1 off coupons at any market vendor!), and a bounce house for kids. There were tons of free samples and a couple of food trucks as well. Jeremy and I grabbed the 2Legit combo (chicken, waffle, collared greens, and mac & cheese!) from the Waffle Roost to share. We also had some fresh watermelon juice and kettle corn. (Jeremy thought the kettle corn was the best popcorn ever. :P)
It was my second time seeing Jeremy’s brother and sister-in-law and it felt very welcoming when I was also greeted with hugs. One thing I love about Jeremy is how much he values his family. I truly appreciate this aspect because this is exactly what I want in my future; strong family bonds. <3 It makes me feel incredibly lucky that I somehow ended up in this situation.
After we split ways with everyone, Jeremy took me to downtown Palo Alto. We had stopped here shortly on our first date, but we did not get to walk around as much. During our visit, we had T4 (I’ve sure been making him drink a lot of tea with me!), struggled with looking for a public bathroom (2 out of 3 toilets we found were backed up. Why?!), and had the Umami at Umami Burger (first time for the both of us and I thought it was delicious!).
We walked around the Stanford Shopping Center afterwards. Jeremy did quite a bit of damage while also gifting me a new Kate Spade purse for paying for the Airbnb for our upcoming Dallas trip. Somehow, that made accepting the spoilage a little more okay. Ha! (He ended up using the purchase against me when we walked past a cute dog and he wanted me to find out the breed for him. I see how it is! :P)
For dinner, we grabbed a quick bite to eat from Pizza My Heart. This was followed up by me eating ice cream in bed and taking a much needed nap before my drive home. :D
My mom does not like me driving home so late, but I almost always do because I try to maximize the amount of time I get to spend with Jeremy. However, he has been really good about making me go home before it gets too late since he knows I get sleepy driving sometimes. :X
While he walked me to my car, we talked about what we liked most about the weekend. Jeremy’s answer? The farmers’ market because all of his favorite people were there.
Yeah. I am seriously falling for this one.
