I can't believe she is driving and dating!!! She's my baby sister and isn't really this old... it means that I really am old, no longer a teenager myself. How did this happen? LOL well I love ya sis :)
So David and I talked a lot about everything on our dates and through texting. Anyways for our 3rd date David asked me to come keep him warm at the USU vs. Boise State football which was on Nov. 20, at 7:30 PM. I figured it was going to be a cold night!
David picked me up and we went to Jimmy Johns and split a sandwich then had to run back to my house to grab Emily's ID card that I forgot. We went to the game all prepared with hats, gloves, extra socks, coats and blankets. And as it turned out it was a warm night in the 50's! And although USU lost by 31 points it was a fun time. Afterwards we got back to my house and sat in the driveway in David’s car for almost 2 hours just talking.
Talking is the best way to get to know someone, you get to know what they are all about. The following day was not only Andy and Leza's 1 year anniversary but my cousin Brady got married that day down in SLC. So my family went down and that whole day I was kinda in a foul mood, not grouchy to anyone or mean, but just quiet and thinking. Although it finally hit me the next morning why I was that way. I realized that it was mine and David's talk.
The way he looks at things are not what I'm looking for, he is very mediocre in looking at things of the gospel, and the church. I'm not looking for the next apostle but I do want someone who is willing to take those callings and learn from them, not someone who complains about his current calling or thinks those 'bigger' callings are for Peter Priesthood. I'm not saying I want a Peter Priesthood, but I am looking for someone who has a great testimony and wants to continue to grow! I'm no where near perfect but I love learning more and growing, thats what callings and talking in church is for, to help you learn and grow.
I still like him, and one day he is going to make someone very happy, but he's just not the guy for me. I'm going to still keep looking.
Katie Berman and Maurina Rowley, two of the greatest girls I met while at Snow. Once upon a time Katie was my roommate and Maurina lived 2 apartments down, we were great friends and just spent hours hanging out and talking. Almost a year ago Maurina got married :) and now Katie is up here at USU. We don't see much of each other anymore with our crazy schedules but we got to squeaze in some time recently.
Katie and I went to lunch at Costa Vita and just talked it was so good, we talked about life, boys and where we are going. Maurina had class so we picked her up later and went to Caspers for ice cream and she caught us up on her and Sean and her family snce we knew most of them down at Snow. It was such a great time I loved it. Miss You Girls!
So I went on a second date with David on Tuesday. David served his mission in Brazil and on campus there was a Brazillian charity dinner of sorts and he got us tickets. He was so excited because it was going to be authentic food and he couldn't wait for me to try it.
We got to the alumni building and I see a bunch of people that I know. We're in line for food and are just having a good time talking and David apparently realizes its not as authentic as he was hoping. But he doesn't inform me quite yet. We grab the food and have a seat. The drink was red colored water, not the best at all, but atleast I enjoyed the food, I didn't know any different.
Anyways we got done and went back to his place and watched UP :) way cute movie if you haven't seen it yet I suggest it! We watch the movie and get talking afterwards and David starts saying something and then backs out. Well it was too late, I knew he was going to say something and have to know what. I keep bugging him and he finally tells me that he saw weavels in the seasoning we put on our food!!! OMG gross!!! I couldn't believe it! Talk about disguisting!
So... I know everyone is dying to hear, well I think they are ppl seem pretty excited over facebook about it anyways :) So about a week and a half ago I met this guy at country swing dancing. Me and my old roommate, and one of my best friends ever, Lindsay try to go every week. We have some good friends there and its one of the only places that I meet new ppl since I'm not going to school right now and I work at the Elementary school... no one to really meet there.
Anyways, I usually don't meet many new ppl, Lindsay never just stands tho, she's always dancing! Love her to pieces. But this particular night was a lot of fun. I had a bunch of guys asking me to dance and it was fun. This one kid was here from Peru going to school, and he asked for my number and wanted to go out that weekend. I love different cultures ad everything don't get me wrong, but I kinda have issues if I can't understand someones broken english, so as fun as he seemed and cute, I was glad to be going toSt. George that weekend. But he got my number anyways.
Later that night as I was standing just enjoying the good music a guy asks me to dance. Well he apparently doesn't know that much, just learning and asks me to show him some stuff. This isn't my forte! I usually tell guys that i'm not a good teacher and after stuggling through a dance they leave. David happened to not care and just danced with me laughing the whole time. After the song was over he kept talking to me, just chatting, nothing that I even remember. Well he stayed by my side for the rest of the evening. Lindsay and I like a few of the line dances so when we were doing those David was great at attempting! He een made me attempt with him on one that I don't know, but since he was such a good sport I figured I better be too. Anyways he was way cute all night, he kept gabbng my hands and trying different things, he figured out 'the cuddle' and kept doing that over and over again it was way cute. It came time to go so we left and said our goodbyes and that was that.
I found out his last name at the church on Sunday and decided to look him up on facebook and I found him, but I couldn't bring myself to add him. Tuesday night for our IWA activity we were combining with an IMA chapter and they wanted to have a dating panel, just asking questions back and forth about dating so we agreed. Well these boys helped me out a lot, one thing they said they liked about girls is when they are bold... most guys are completely oblivious when a girl likes them, they said to ask for the guys number, that tells the guy that you are interested and they're more likely to do something. So I had my challenge... be bold, very difficult for me but something was going to happen.
David ended up not going dancing on wednesday so I decided to be bold since I couldn't shake him from my mind. I got home after dancing and got on facebook, I added him as a friend, putting a little note saying I missed him that night and I hd a ton of fun the week before. Well he accepted, commented on my status, and on friday sent me an email asking if I had any fun plans for the weekend, and to let him know. OH GOSH!!! it worked! Sad day for me my weekend was all booked, but my girls would understand me bailing on them for the football game to go instead with a boy! And ofcourse, they didn't mind at all.
Saturday, David picked me up around 12:30ish for the game... cold, and snowy, but perfect because together we could stay somewhat warm :) We then went to an early dinner at Pounders, a new hawaiian grill in Logan. Where we sat and talked some more (since we talked all through the game). He took me home around 6:30 where of course I got the 3rd degree from the family. Here is wht ws said between Lexie and I
Lexie: Did you have fun?
Me: Yes... (big grin)
Lexie: Did you kiss him?
Me: WHAT? Who do you think I am?
Me: What does that even mean?
Oh goodness, its a good thing I love her. Anyways there is going to be a 2nd date where we are going to watch UP, which I have found to be very HILarious! More details to come. Don't think anything is going to come from this, remember I am getting ready to leave for Hawaii, and he's going to Park City, plus as we talked yesterday, we both agree that Utahans are crazy getting engaged after only knowing each other for a short time. We both agree in dating and getting to know each other before committing to forever with someone.
So I went to St. George for the weekend with my Aunt Trudy and cousin Kiri.
Kiri got called to play on a soft ball team for a tournament. Kiri's own team is apparently pretty good but this team is better, according to Aunt Trudy and yes they were great!
Here's a few pictures of Kiri
They were doing so good... Undefeated! They were going to play the Championship game at 12:30 sat. night... technically Sunday morning, this league isn't suppose to play on Sunday but they felt this was ok. Well they ended up being 2 games behind by 12:30 so we didn't ply until 2:00 am! then the losing team won the first game and with this being a true champion or whatever its called they had to play another game, this one at 3:30 am! crazy!! With it being so late, the girls were all tired, but they lost the 2nd game too, very sad. But still great job girls!
So the weekend started out finishing cleaning and moving houses... pure craziness! Then we went to The Stadium to watch Morgan and the Sky View band do their final performance for the Marching Band season. (sorry the video won't load... try facebook to see it) but here's a pic Then I got homeand craved Tanners pumpkin and jumped in the shower. I wasgetting ready for a great night! me and my girls dressed up as an 80's rock band... our name Kiss and Tell :) We are named as such... (right to left) Emily was Kiss in Color. Veronica was Sammie. Lindsay was NCMO aka NonComittalMakeOut. And Me... Pucker Up. We went trick or treating around my parents neighborhood, where we would sing I Saw the Sign... Ace of Base when they opened the door. We then proceded to our bishops house. We were talking to him for a bit, laughing about our costumes. We were telling him the band name and then our individual names which he liked and said that he liked them... Our ward needed more lip action! Oh how we love our bishop! I'm going to miss him when I'm gone, but they'll be released soon also. Very sad, they are all amazing.
