So.... there's this boy... {WARNING: The following post series MAY induce vomiting!}


so....... there's this boy......
yeah - me - I said that!
THAT is how I started the conversation with my mom  :)

I love my mom - I know how tired she must be of all the losers that come into my life.  And every loser begins with "so.... I met this boy...."   My poor dad, he doesn't even pay attention anymore... nor does he bother caring to get to know anyone.  Not because he's heartless...Not because he doesn't care...I'm sure my dad has at some point thought to himself that I will NEVER find anyone.  NOT that there aren't dates, but more that no one is ever good enough.  Not just by his standards but mostly by MY standards!
I have waited 33 years (so far) for this man - I won't settle!  So I push away and don't let people in.  I don't trust...blah blah blah....I HAVE WALLS.

Now - are you ready for this????   THIS is where it gets good!  (go ahead....stick your finger down your throat...I know I know....)
THIS has been the bestest Thanksgiving ever!  =)
So................ there's this boy  {Part One}

I won't begin with ALL the details about how freaking GREAT he is (not yet....but I will.... just you wait... cause he IS GREAT!)
Anyway - we actually went to high school together.  So I knew him.... ran into him recently.  Chatted on facebook etc, he started reading my blog (Hi Adam! {wink}) and here is where the story gets good.  A few weekends ago I agreed to meet him and his daughter for bowling  (she is 7 and the sweetest, cutest little thing you've ever seen).  So I went....with no real intentions of anything other than hanging out.  (remember, I don't let people in...)  In fact, I had plans later that night to meet up with a friend to see a movie  (Blind Side - remember that blog)  Anyway... we bowled and he invited me to dinner with them (he had also invited another couple along for bowling and dinner)  I declined the invitation... I already had plans. {insert big HUGE walls around me HERE}   BUT before we could get out the door, I had changed my mind  :)  So - I meet them and we all have dinner together.  (watching him with his little girl....well.... I can't even describe it.  I'm a big daddy's girl - there is just something special about father-daughter relationships and man do they have a great relationship....)  Dinner was good....and we parted ways.  I met my friend at the movies and told her about my night.  Something changed by the end of that night.  couldn't put my finger on it...but something.
Nothing was different with my attitude though.... still behind the walls and looking for nothing more than friendship.

Now.....after that night we proceeded to chat via text or facebook or phone of whatever every day.  No biggie, didn't think much of it....but insert Thanksgiving holiday now.  Right?!?!  (are you gagging yet?  no?  you will be!)  The Wednesday before Thanksgiving I met him out at a local restaraunt.  Lots of friends with him when I got there.... but soon they were all gone and it was just us.  There was a band playing.  It was loud.  So to be able to hear each other, we were sitting in chairs side by side, but facing each other and would occassionally have to lean forward to talk into the other's ear.  WELL.........HERE WE GO!  That's it.  Done.  Over for me......  At some point during this night... a brick fell off my wall.  And all of a sudden......I REEEEALLY wanted to kiss this boy  ;-)  {how the heck did THAT happen?}  We hung out the rest of the night........talking, laughing, even went to Waffle House afterwards.  We didn't finally part ways until about 4AM.  Keep in mind, this is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  I have family plans the next day and he - well HE had very important plans the next day to provide Thanksgiving dinner for those that had no where else to go.  As I began driving home that night I could not stop smiling.  just sayin......could NOT stop smiling!!!! 
But still - a little guarded, and having NO idea where this had come from or why OR if it was real.  All I knew at that point, on that night is this:  this one was different.  Bricks were falling all around me and I couldn't stop it.  HELLO - get back up there... that's my protection!
BUT I COULD NOT STOP SMILING.  and I'm pretty sure when I wasn't looking - I was knocking those bricks down  ;-)

The story just gets better and better....I promise....stay tuned for Thanksgiving   =)

I suspected that your fabulous holiday involved more than the bball tickets. (Although that is an awesome present.) It sounds great so far. I'll be back for more!
