A Good One

So I must say, there are still good ones out there for the taking!! You date and you date, and at first they act like "Prince Charming" but then it all changes, and in my case usually...drastically!! They aren't the person I started liking. But through all that, hopefully you don't lose sight of "fate" and real "love." They always say people come into your life when you least expect them too; I hadn't always believed that until now.

The guy I like, is one of those finds. I am not going to sit here and say we're going to end up together, and blah blah blah...but for right now, it's looking really good.

We were supposed to hang out yesterday, just a casual relaxing movie watching date...but I started feeling really sick. I'm pretty sure now that I have either a really bad cold, or the flu (still feeling horrible today). I got a fever yesterday, chills, achy = FLU. So I had to cancel. Some guys would probably be irritated, and I didn't know if he would or not. I haven't seen him in a week and he was out of town last weekend, so I was kind of nervous about rescheduling. He didn't care at all, well cared about not seeing me, but just wanted me to feel better. He got off work and I asked what he was going to do, after asking about me ten million times, he said probably just relax with his dogs and watch a movie/read.

So I go take a shower, when I get out, I see that he had texted me. The text said: Jess, go look on your porch. Hope you feel better :)

That was 15 minutes prior so, I thought maybe he was outside, and being a girl I was embarrassed as to how I looked at the moment! So I told my mom to go look...when she replied, "Jess, you need to come see this," I raced down the stairs almost breaking my ankle. Whoops.

On the porch was Porcupine (my favorite restaurant - with the best chicken noodle soup ever), Pink tulips, my favorite candy, and two Red-Box movies.
How sweet is that? Guys don't normally do that. And he wanted nothing in return. Didn't even ring the doorbell (except my mom did say she saw him running down my long driveway haha).

The kind selfless gesture made me like him even more, and it made me smile. And I said to myself. Wow. There are still some good ones out there.

Guess it was worth the wait and the bad ones eh?

Picture Explosion

Well hello dear Blogger world!! How are we doing on this Manic Monday after the holidays?? I know that I'm still full from Thanksgiving...but that's okay. I only gained what, 10 lbs. Ha...oh boy. Need to start getting my jiggly butt to the stinking gym!! But the greatest thing is, Christmas is right around the corner! It's by far my favorite holiday. And I honestly cannot wait to do so many Christmas activities!! But I'll talk about that in time.

I have so many pictures from last week, it's not even funny. So I may just post all the pictures, and leaving the typing to my story I'm writing. I'm sad to report, that I don't think I was able to accomplish my NaNoWriMo goal this month :( Too much crazy stuff going on, and I didn't have as much free time as I would've liked. But hey, it did it's just in inspiring me to write, write, write! That is the ultimate goal is it not?

Anyway, PICTURE TIME. These are some of the events that you will see:
  • Alaina's Birthday (cousin)
  • Kim's Birthday (Step-mom)
  • Thanksgiving
  • Utes game (horrible, horrible game)
  • Friend celebration for Alaina's birthday
  • Party at my friend Natalie & Danielle's house
  • Lumpys 
My brother's poor broken hand. Has to get surgery tomorrow :(
 What a long week/weekend right?? But it was great times! The only thing that was missing, was the guy I like...he was in Cali with his family for Thanksgiving. So, I got a little lonely. But I was with all of our friends so that was good, and we spoke every single day. Think we might hang out tonight too :) Either watch movies, go to a movie, and eat out or order in. Need to decide!!

I'm also playing "mommy" this week. If you saw the picture of my little brother Landon's hand, you'll know that he broke it playing football and has to get surgery tomorrow. My step-mom and dad's anniversary is tomorrow, so they're staying up in Deer Valley. Landon wanted them to go still, so I'll be staying at the house with my two brothers and watching Landon after surgery. He should be just fine, just maybe a little drugged up. It just sucks it's his writing hand...but I'll definitely help him with his homework.

So how was everyone's Thanksgiving? Mine was really nice, I made a toast for Greg though and got all emotional. But that's okay; it needed to be said. He was with us though...I know it!

I still need to do a Breaking Dawn review and I want to do a whole post on Christmas time :) (the best time!!). I also need to change up my blog decor for Christmas/wintertime as well. I love the fall theme, but it's time, once again, to switch it up!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day. xo.
