I love the month of October it is by far my favorite. 1st of all because volleyball season is in full the high school level anyway, 2nd because I love fall and all the colors of fall, and the leaves and wearing sweaters everywhere, 3rd I love Halloween! It sounds like a little kid but I love all the spooky decorations and scary movies and who doesnt love going to the Haunted Mansions in Alblion! 4th Football season! It's just getting cold so you bundle up and go cheer on the boys! 5th October kick off the holiday season you have Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years! Oh isn't it just the best time in the whole year! Heck to the yes!

Once Upon a Time..

Once upon a time….isn’t that how most fairy tales start? Ok so now that I know someone reads this lamo blog I thought I would share the story of how Grant and I got here? Well we met on September 11, 2009 at the Blackfoot Fair. Grant was 17 and a Senior at Minico High School I was 15 and a Sophomore at Raft River High School. I was with my friend Casey Durfee and Grant was with his friend Brogan Parkin. Brogan and Casey knew each other and they started talking at a table Grant sat down and didn’t say much but we talked a little I definitely thought he was cute and I was expecting him to ask for my number NOPE what a looser right. Well come to find out I went to school with a mutual friend and he was kinda like ummm you probably shouldn’t date him he’s too old and likes to party HA! So things went on and I didn’t think much of the cute boy I met at the Blackfoot Fair but that December around Christmas time I was on facebook and noticed a familiar face so I said hey I know him so I added him on facebook. Instantly he accepted my request and we started talking he left me his number and said he really really wanted to talk to me so I text him…..but here’s the catch I had been dating this other guy for a few months and he was being a real jerk at the time so I talked to Grant but after a while we stopped talking and then we would talk occasionally I saw him at FFA convention he text me at his graduation and a few times in the summer. He talked to me whenever something big was going on but I had a boyfriend..yes I was still dating the same looser jerk face.. but anyway in November we started talking a little when this boyfriend who shall remain nameless throughout this entire blog was being mean to me. I was like dang I’m texting a college boy HECK YES! But then we stopped again and he didn’t seem to interested so I wasn’t. Then finally he who shall not be named and I broke up I was a lonely hot mess. Then one day this handsome young man decided to talk to me on facebook yet I tend to forget and leave my facebook on so I didn’t see the message until he was off…I was like hmmmmm someone actually wants to talk to me hmmmmm ok I’ll text him so I did and we talked and talked and everything started to click. We talked until 4 30 in the morning on Christmas it’s always been a goal of mine to stay up the whole night on Christmas I failed but he was right there with me! Our first date was on New Years. He picked me up and it was so cold that night like -17 seriously. We went to the movies and watched Little Fockers, Chris his cousin was suppose to have a date but she didn’t show so he came along anyway afterwards he took me to Kiwi Loco for the very first time ever! Then I went and met his parents they were pretty nice I got the nickname jail bait right off the bat. Then we decided to go drive around we stopped and talked in a parking lot behind what would become our favorite place to eat we were listening to music on his ipod and just getting to know each other I was leaned in on the center console looking at his ipod he leaned in to look to I looked up at him and BAMMMMMMMM he kissed me! It was like you hear about in movies fireworks and butterflys ya I it was that good. So we drove home and when the clock struck midnight I rang in the New Year with a kiss ha ya awesome right 1/1/11 ya I thought it was cool. Well after that I knew I liked him a lot lot but I was still scared after getting my hear broke by “the other one” so I was cautious. A week after our first date I broke my ankle and tore all the ligaments in it graceful I think yes! He didn’t even ask he drove out to see me the next day and hung out with me and my bummm ankle what a sweetheart right! That was also the first night he told me he loved me 1/8/11. He said I knew when I kissed you there was something special and I don’t expect anything back but one day I will. He took me everywhere with that kankle he carried my purse at the movies came to my basketball games even thought I didn’t play came to my house. Finally on 1/20/11 I decided I was ready to be in a relationship so 1/20/11 is kinda our anniversary if you call it that ha! I have never been happier and I thank heaven everyday for that boy! He has been there for me through thick and thin and even though he is almost 900 miles away we grow closer to each other everyday! I can’t wait until he comes home to see what else the world has in store for us! I love you Grant!

Boy Missing a Man Card and Hermit Girl

Today was a long long long day! But on a happier note I got a letter a 26 page letter I might add oh I love that cute face! He still knows how to make me smile even 800 miles away! He has had some more crazy things happen but in Hollywood I can only imagine what he has ahead of him.So I am going to share some letter highlights that will be direct quotes from Grant (still not too high on the Elder Stevenson thing). For those of you who say he had no heart this is proof!
"I really got to thinking I was like i wanted Taylor when I met her in 2009 and those feelings lasted and stayed with me until 2011. Now I'm so in love with her and my feelings grow for her everyday they just continue to get stronger and stronger! There is no doubt in my mind that you will be the one for me. This is meant to be I just know it is. There is no possible way these feelings aren't real! I have never felt this way before I can honestly see us getting married in the temple and living happily ever after. I have these day dreams of me coming home and us having our fairytale life together its all perfect! I cant wait for the day to come when we're both kneeling at the alter ahhh I'm so stoked. When i would go to the temple in the MTC we would always see couples in the sealing rooms and it just made me think of you."
Isn't he just so sweet. So an update on my life I'm going to become a hermit. If you're laughing that was not a joke I'm really considering it. As of right not I have a 100% in College Psychology!!! I have a volleyball game tomorrow I start EMT clincals in November. I will walk at a college graduation before I do my own high school graduation. My life is hectic thus the whole hermit idea much less complicated. Oh and to explain the picture I got homecoming princess and this is Grant playing with my little brother and his G's are showing.

The current adventures of Elder Stevenson and Girl Waiting

I am horrible at keeping this up because I seriously doubt anyone reads it anyway. Grant left almost 7 weeks ago time has flown at some points and drug on at others. He is doing ok California is a big culture shock for a little farm boy from Paul, Idaho. He is in a ghetto. His letters keep me going but for some reason it takes forever for a letter to get from Hollywood, California to Malta, Idaho...go figure. Not much has happened to me in the 7 weeks I went on one date and it was ok but i felt so wrong. I started my senior year of high school, played volleyball, crowned homecoming princess. Grant has so far given a woman a blessing who apparently was cursed because her boyfriend was sleeping with her best friend who is a witch, he met a lady in the ward who gave her dead dog a priesthood blessing by authority of her future husband who she was going to meet the next week i know crazy and that was only his first week in Cali go figure. My most recent letter was a fat 14 pages long. His companion recently broke his ankle so they get to sit in the apartment all day and he said he had a lot of free time on his hands which is fine by me I love hearing from him!!
