Q & A: Blake

A lot of you have been asking questions about Blake and all that has happened in the last week or so- and I am MORE THAN HAPPY to answer them all :)

I've already started a post concerning how we met (Yes, that one's for you, BabyWanted!) :)

If you want to know something, just leave it in the comments and I will just make a whole post answering all of them at one time!

Until then, I need to STUDY STUDY STUDY and try not to think of B so much! :)

I am seriously on cloud nine! He is amazing!!

He went to undergrad in my home town so he came back to see his advisor and some friends this weekend so it just worked out that he could meet my family while he was here.

We met up after I picked up Olly yesterday (Yes, I told N that I met someone out of respect and he was NOT HAPPY! More on that later) and went to the beach to let Olly run around. It was awesome! Olly was so well behaved and Blake played fetch with him and chased him all over the beach! It was so cute!! I literally stood there in awe of him because he just continues to surprise me every single day. (PS I am more in awe of Gods plan at this moment than I am in Blake haha Everything is just so perfect that I know God has orchestrated all of it!)

Last night, he met my parents and THEY LOVE HIM! Conversation flowed so easily and the first thing my mom said when we talked afterward is... "he is the complete opposite of N!" Yeah Mom! I know! :)

We went out with a bunch of his friends from undergrad last night and they were SO nice! I dont know why but I was really nervous that his friends wouldn't like me or that I would feel uncomfortable but it was so much fun! He told me this morning that they told him that I was a keeper and that he better not mess this up because they really liked me! haha :) SCORE!!

He's heading back to school today to work tonight and Im already sad that the weekend is over so soon for him. I am going to spend my day with Ollydog, babysit tonight, and then go to church with some of my really good friends whom I babysit for tomorow morning to tell them about Blake :) I tried calling to tell them yesterday but the husband was only there so I wanted to wait until they were together.

Am I jinxing this, people? haha

Happy Saturday!

Boy Update

HAHA! The title of this post probably made u guys excited.

SORRY! Nothing to be excited about! :)

Just thought I would fill you in on some really funny, really bad, and really sad boy updates.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Which one you want first??

Sad? Alright, here we go.

I have not heard from Snowboarding boy, R, AT ALL! Ive invited him to come hang out with us a few times but hes always busy (either that or he just doesn't wanna hang out with me- haha). Im bummed because he seems like a great guy but heck, God has a plan and if R's not in it, then Im grateful for no more broken hearts.


Im embarassed to say this... but I have let Collier and I's friendship get out of hand. DONT FREAK OUT!!... out of hand meaning.... I have allowed him to text me every single day for the past... what?.... month or so. I didnt think it was a big deal since we are friends until I realized that it wasnt really like that in his head. He told me Friday night, that he "really wanted to see me" and that he was "having second thoughts still about being with his girlfriend." I feel awful but I cant have the guilt of feeling like I am ruining their relationship on me. I told him Saturday night that I thought it would be best if he didnt text me anymore.

ladies!! Am I being awful?! I hope not because I am trying to do the right thing and make it clear that I am not interested in dating. If I was his girlfriend, I would be so upset to know that he had feelings for another girl (even if the other girl didnt know it was that serious). Wish I had known the extent of the issue a lot earlier so I could have prevented this from happening. Im nervous now because I work with him tonight and I dont want it to be straight awkward between us. ahhhhh! Ill let you know how that one goes. haha.

Alright, Alright... here's the funny one....

Okay... maybe its not THAT funny but I laughed out loud when it happened. haha.

This guy, Adam, from my work had been asking me to hang some over the past month. Nothing big... just "hey, my buddies and I are going out tonight if you wana come with us" or just a simple "we should watch a movie sometime." Well, one night a few weeks ago, we both ended up at the same concert downtown with some friends. Afterwards, he dropped me back off at my apartment so my friend wouldn't have to go outta her way to bring me home. WELLL, in the short time that I spoke to him that night- I realized how incredibly ARROGANT this boy was and I dont mean like subtle, "Im awesome" arrogant but like FULL FLEDGED "IM THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED" arrogant. HAHA! It was a HUGE turn off so I just thanked him for bringing me home and that was that.

Jump forward to last week, he texts me saying that he'd "like to apologize because he feels like I have gotten the wrong impression of him and he'd like to make it up to me." He asks if I wanna watch a movie with him and I agree so the next night he comes by with a redbox and we watch "The Invention of Lies" (not worth my time, just fyi- it was awful). Everything was fine but I just wasnt feelin' it. Was just realizing that I could have cared less whether he was there or not and THAT, my friends, tells me that I shouldn't hang out with the guy again. LONG story short, his car got towed because he's dumb and didn't listen to me when I told him to park along the road instead of in the parking lot. I had to drop him off at the tow place at 1:30 am and I was pretty sure Id never hear from him again considering that our "date" costed him a $1 movie and a $125 towing fee. Oh well.

Jump forward AGAIN to Saturday.

I overheard one of Adam's friends at work talking to another co-worker about Adam's "DATE" the other night to see "DEAR JOHN" with a new girl he's interested in. Obviously no one at work even knows we hung out but I was interested to see what they had to say. Basically all I gathered was that it was his first date with her and thats all they knew. I wasn't hurt by the fact that he went out with her since I had already found that he wasn't my type, but it kinda sucked to know that he's one of those guys who just brings multiple girls out at a time.


I receive a text that night from Adam that says "Hey, I know this isnt what you want to hear but I wanted to tell you before you heard it from someone else... I brought someone out the other night on a date. I just wanted you to know that you are really cool but I dont see a future for us. Im sorry"

HAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAAAAAAA!! I know! I should NOT be laughing but it cracks me up that the boy felt the need to explain to me that he didnt think we should date when I made NO attempt to even try. Hah! It just reaffirmed how arrogant he is that he would think I was DYING to date him to the point where he had to tell me he was going out with another girl. HAHAHA!! Im sorry- this probably makes me seem awful but it is really funny to me!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Ive been reminded why I dont feel like dealing with guys right now! It just takes too much DANG ENERGY!! :) Ive decided to just focus on school and if God has someone out there he wants me to meet, he'll make it happen.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Sorry Ive been so boring lately! School has been crazy even though we had almost a full week off last week because of snow!

Just an FYI- Im pushing WEEK 3 WORKOUT LOG until this week since I wasnt really able to work out last week because of the weather. Not that anyone looks for it but just in case- haha!

I HAVE been reading your blogs! Just dont have as much time to comment these days! Bear with me! I promise I'll come out of hibernation soon!

Sunday, February 7, 2010

Promise Ill come back and write something of substance on Tuesday after my exams.... I know Ive been incredibly boring and I apologize. I have crazy stuff going on- just dont know if I can fit it all in one post.
