Are you going to come and tell me not to get on that plane?

Happy Jetting is right!! You know how everybody has their own little jetBlue experience?? Well, here is mine. Thursday came around and after spending unexpected hours at the Dr Office and in the hospital for some testing, I decided it would probably be best if I flew back to Boston on Thursday night. I wanted be be able to take the whole day on Friday to rest without any interruptions before I had to go back to work on Saturday. I checked out and headed down to Salt Lake City to hop on the Long Beach flight. I had some time to kill, so, I text Dave and asked him what he was doing his last night in SLC. He told me he was flying back to Long Beach. FABULOUS! I couldn't have planned this next part out any smoother. Thankfully Dave has a sense of humor because this scheme that I was thinking up could have definitely backfired. When he told me he was flying home, I was already at the ticket counter messing around. I asked the gate agent if he could do me a HUGE favor and look up the open seats and tell me if there was one next to a Mr. Dave Pond. There was! And it was all mine! A little stalkerish?? Hmm... maybe, but it was all part of the surprise. Honestly?? Who doesn't love a good surprise anyway? After printing out my boarding passes, I sat off to the side, by the gate, waiting to board. I was trying to decide how to go about this whole shebang. All these thoughts were going through my head. I decided I would wait until the very last to board the plane and then ask Dave politely if the seat next to him was taken. Just as they started to board he sent the perfect text... It read "Are you going to come and tell me not to get on that plane?" I text him back and said, "Dang! You caught me" he just laughed and I text, "Laugh it up!". I waited another 10 min. and I couldn't help it. I walked up to him and said..."Please don't go! Stay!" He got the BIGGEST smile on his face and said "What are you doing here??? I can't believe you are really here!?! Are you serious!?" I laughed, and thought serious as a heart attack. "If you don't stay, I'm going with you! I got my bags all packed!" It was CLASSIC. We boarded the plane and it was the perfect end to a great trip home. I'm not sure what will come of this new friendship and as of right now, I don't want to know. I'm just enjoying the ride.

You wanna make out and get some licorice? Eww... I hate licorice but we can get some lunch.

On Sunday night I went to a party at my friend Jason's home. While I was there I was able to meet some new people, one of which I became instant friends with. Let's call him Dave, since that is his name. We met, we mingled and to my surprise, I became quickly interested in this beautiful man. In conversation I found out that he was from LA, only in town visiting Jason for the week. He had actually flown in on jetBlue. Interesting, since that is the company that I work for. We chatted a little bit more and found out that we both served LDS missions in Brazil and that lead us into other small topics that we had in common. Needless to say, it was a great night. I left with the exchanging of numbers, and thinking that I would probably never hear from him again, but it was okay because it made for a pretty good night. To my surprise, he called the next day and asked me out for Tuesday. Unfortunately I already had plans on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. I knew he was flying out on Thursday so I was uncertain if I was going to see him again before we both left Utah for the month. We ended up texting a little bit on Tuesday morning and decided to do lunch. I chose my favorite, Zupa's. I love it!!! They have the best soup and salads around! And what's better then some lobster soup, oyster crackers, and a chocolate covered strawberry for a little lunch date. It was so fun!!

The more people I come in contact with and the more friends I make, it seems as if everyone is blogging now a days. I finally decided to jump in on this crazy state of uncontrollable excitement and wild behavior and start a blog for myself.

For awhile I was a myspacer, then slowly I turned to facebook to keep in contact with all my friends across the world. I'm not gonna lie, facebook has slowly taken over my life! Let's be honest, it's not like I have anything better to do with my time than stalk people on that stupid site. No, in all honesty, it's been great. That site has allowed me to find and stay updated with friends from High School, College and even my mission to Brazil that I never thought I would see again. This brings me to my purpose of blogging...I'm just going to throw this out there, I know that this is going to come as a HUGE shock to a lot of you who are reading this, but As perfect as I may seem, I'm not! I am horrible at keeping a journal. I'm hoping that throwing down my thoughts, and posting a few pictures every couple of days it will not only allow my readers to keep up to date with where I am and what I am doing, but it will also help me to keep tabs on my own life! Besides, we all know that what we really want is to see and hear are the juicy details of each others life, right??? LET THE BLOGGING BEGIN....
