BYU vs San Diego State

P decided he'd had enough of the Cougars and relinquished his ticket so boyfriend could accompany me to the football game. Brandon informed me that he didn't have one single BYU t-shirt. Of course, there was NO way he was wearing any shirt with an A on it in Cougar Stadium! (We needed all the help we could get. No distractions ;)) So, during a girl's day out, Nycole and I stopped by Walgreens and picked one up. And...dang. I just wanna kiss him.

In fact... I think I will.

Check out the girl behind us. Annoyed? Grossed out?
Or...totally in awe of how awesome we are. Yeah, I'm going with that one.

Let me catch you up.

Ever feel like you're living in a whirlwind? That's what the past 3 weeks have felt like for me. A whirlwind. Sometimes I look back and think "This is crazy! So crazy, crazy!"
It may be crazy, but it's mine.

On September 11th, I grudgingly walked up to my friend's doorstep to pick her up for The SLC Greek Festival downtown, which she wanted to do for her birthday. I was cranky. When I walked through the door, I noticed a boy and a girl that I recognized from my ward, but didn't know very well. I offered to drive and we headed downtown. After about a half an hour of being there, we decided to stand in line to get food. As we stood there, I noticed that my friend was gone. Great. I didn't know where she had gone, so I turned to the boy. Realizing this would be more awkward if I just stood there, I decided to talk to him.
I've been grateful for that decision ever since.

Dating is a funny thing. Usually I would say it's extremely stressful, confusing, and just plain hard. But this round has been fantastically easy. I love it. It's enjoyable, exciting, and fun! I never thought I would use those words, but I am. It's true. It has been a crazy couple of weeks, but oh so enjoyable. I'm constantly asking Brandon "Is this crazy for you? Are we going too fast? You let me know when this gets old, but FYI..... it's not getting old for me."

Who knows what the future holds, but I'm enjoying every minute.
Every. Single. Minute.
It's quite refreshing. ;)

Thinkin' about something...

So, I'm thinking when Brandon and I were standing in line chatting it up for the first time at the Salt Lake Greek Festival, he did not imagine this:

That's right, I dragged the boyfriend to a HANSON concert. Actually, I didn't have to drag too hard, and it was really mostly the influence of Whit- Hanson's number 1 fan. When we first started dating, I warned him that W loves, LOVES Hanson. Of course his first response was "You mean the boys that look like girls?" Yeah....them. Anyway, when he met Whit the first night, she eventually made him watch one of their music videos. Then she asked if he wanted to come to their concert with us. He asked her "Is Hanson worth $30?"
Of course, her response to that is "That was hurtful."

He came anyway, that trooper of mine.

So, I brought W's new camera and she asked if we would take pics and film some songs. So, we're standing in the crowd, trying to figure out the light settings and this random guy comes up to us asking if he could take our picture. We didn't mind, so he grabs the camera and just starts snapping picture after picture while asking if we're stoked about the concert.

We didn't see him again, until...

Right then Brandon turns to me as I turn to him in total disbelief and says
"Um ... that's the guy that took our picture." Lead singer. Of the opening band. Right on.

After a couple of bands, Hanson came out and they were great! I mean that honestly- they were amazing. Def a good show. Def. I would go again. (W paid me nothing to say that.) I was even impressed with boyfriend for dancing to the tunes and taking pictures and video. Oh how lovely he is.
We saw Hanson in concert. It rocked.
And I like this boyfriend of mine more and more everyday. ;)
