I have a dear friend, Dr. Mark. I think I mentioned him a year ago on my blog. I don’t write about him often. I’ve thought everyone would think he’s my boyfriend and when I say he’s not my boyfriend people would wonder why. So here it goes…
Baseball Game~ not really my idea of fun but I wore a dress
Mark and I on New Year's Eve last year~ He's really cute!
~We call him Dr. Mark because he an Anesthesiologist. There are SO many Marks; I must have a way to distinguish them. He doesn’t really like it that I call him Dr. Mark but oh well….I have 5 Marks in my blackberry!
~Mark and I are not dating and we never will. He’s not straight.
~Dr. Mark is super sweet and he’s extremely smart. If you meet him he’ll never let you know how smart he is; he’s very humble.
~I met Mark 3 years ago at a birthday party. I feel like I’ve know him forever. We grew up in very similar households and we have a lot in common.
~Dr. Mark and I are like an old couple. Many Saturday afternoons we take a 3 mile walk in the park. Afterwards, we have an afternoon cocktail at Smith & Wollensky.
Last Saturday afternoon during our walk, Mark asked me if I want to go to his work Christmas party that night. I really didn’t want to go but I told him “Maybe.” Then Mark told me he saw our favorite girl, Blair Waldorf, on Gossip Girl wearing a green dress and ever since he’s wanted to buy it for me. So sweet but my response was “Oh no, no. You can’t do that.” Mark told me that if I would go to his Christmas party he would buy me a dress. Ohhh… he knows me so well! I did tell him over and over that he didn't have to buy me a dress but he insisted. So, my “Maybe” changed to an “Okay, I'll go to the party!”
A Christmas Party last year
After Smith & Wollensky, Dr. M took me to very expensive store in Houston with designer dresses. He told me my budget was $500. Y’all, I didn’t find anything I liked! Can you believe that? I’m just not into expensive clothes. I like what I like, no matter what the price tag says or name on the inside label~which can be bad at times.
Next we go to my favorite store in the whole world, Anthro. I’ve shopped in London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, China, and NYC. I always come back to Anthro! I found a dress and I came in $300 under budget. I always knew I was low maintenance. :) We didn’t take any full length photos at the party but I found the dress on Polyvore.com. It was SOOOO sweet of Dr. M. I had a huge smile on my face all day.
