I think I'm Cursed...

I can count the number of 2nd dates I've had... Dax back in high school, but we were always just friends and doing each other favors, and he's happily married. Tyler after we wrote on his mission, but he has been married now for a year. Then there was David who was into me for a week then was done. Clint... lol... just great friends, we hang out all the time. Andy took me to an Aggies game and then I asked him to a dance at the institute. I can't forget the run around I've had with Jeff in the last 8 months, we never went out, but there were feelings there for sure, and now he lives in Salt Lake and I haven't heard from him since he moved. Now Craig, who I took a risk and met him online. We texted, met for dinner, texted some more, went to lunch and now, even after texting him myself I haven't heard form him since our 2nd date.
No this isn't me having a pity party. I'm just stating my curse, or the fact that God has a plan for all of us, and I haven't met "The One" yet. Some people would get discouraged by this, I do get frustrated, but we have to understand that it is part of life. Some people get to that stage early, and for some of us it takes some time, but we'll all get there in the end.
One day I will meet my prince charming... I guess I just haven't reached that day.

haha! i'm no good at this!

Oh dear... I get on a kick and post and then it seems I fall of the face of this earth. Don't know if I'll ever be a pro at this...
Anyway, so much fun has happend! Back in March we went to Moab for Spring Break. That is a whole post itself that I may, or may not get up in the future.
We;ve been working on wedding stuff for Lindsay and Travis and that hasn't been too bad, until planning the Bridal Shower. Which was good, until Lindsay's Great-Grandma passed and we decided to postpone the party. This weekend we will do Lindsay's bridals! Yay! I will be doing her hair, and driving her around so she doesn't have to in her dress. My bridesmaid dress came, I love it... except I might have issues as the company designed it with only one pocket... my OCD may kick in... but I'll deal.
I also went on a really good date. I haven't had one of those in a really long time... at least one where there is some possible potential. I met him online, and we chatted, then texted, then met at Texas Roadhouse for dinner. We ate and talked for about an hour and a half. So far he seemed to be a really great guy. The following week we continued to text, making jokes, and I know on my end I was laughing a lot. We were going to hang out again at my FHE, as they were doing a dutch oven dinner with 4 wards combined. But his sister-in-law came into town and he ended up babysitting his niece. That was ok as I was at the hospital with my own sister-in-law awaiting the arrival of my nephew Brody O'Dell! But since we ended up not getting together there are plans for another date this weekend. I'm super excited, he is a really good guy.
Back to that other information... I'm an Aunt! Yup, Andy and Leza had little Brody on Mon, May 16, at 9:00ish. He is so dang cute and has taken up all my spare time lol. He looks like Andy, but has Leza's nose, and I'm sure we'll notice many more similarities of both of them as he continues to grow. They are home today, at Leza's parents, and are doing great. They will continue to live here in the valley until about July when they will bless him and then we will say goodbye as they move to Vernal. Good thing its not too far away and we can make many weekend trips to see them.
That is an update on this crazy thing I call my life.
