I would like to start out by saying that I.Love.Food.
So this day 10 challenge is, in fact, a challenge for me.
I love all sorts of food but for the sake of time and my sanity I will narrow it down to
two....no....three. Yep Three.
Cheap-o place to eat that I love:
Middle Class, kind of more expensive than previous place to eat:
And the last is the most expensive by far and I usually get to go it with my papa on my birthday...sometimes. I've only been a few times but I love it to death.
If you like fondue (which I do) and enjoy a 4 course meal with you and a special someone...mmmmm this place is for you. Yummy. But definitely don't forget your pocketbook, meals for two cost roughly 70-95 dollars. Lovely.
When there's nowhere else to run Is there room for one more son One more son If you can hold on If you can hold on, hold on I wanna stand up, I wanna let go You know, you know - no you don't, you don't I wanna shine on in the hearts of men I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand
Another head aches, another heart breaks I am so much older than I can take And my affection, well it comes and goes I need direction to perfection, no no no no
Help me out Yeah, you know you got to help me out Yeah, oh don't you put me on the blackburner You know you got to help me out
And when there's nowhere else to run Is there room for one more son These changes ain't changing me The cold-hearted boy I used to be
Yeah, you know you got to help me out Yeah, oh don't you put me on the blackburner You know you got to help me out You're gonna bring yourself down Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier I got soul, but I'm not a soldier ...
Yeah, you know you got to help me out Yeah, oh don't you put me on the blackburner You know you got to help me out You're gonna bring yourself down You're gonna bring yourself down Yeah, oh don't you put me on the blackburner Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down
Over and out, last call for sin While everyone's lost, the battle is won With all these things that I've done All these things that I've done If you can hold on If you can hold on
To be honest I haven't really thought about this one in very much depth. Plus when I was 15 or so in Young Women's we made an engagement time capsule to be opened on the day we get engaged, should have all the answers hahah plus Seeing as that hasn't happened yet and I have no idea what is in that little box, I will try to create MY dream wedding... Ok ok maybe I HAVE thought about it....a little :)
But to start, let's start with the day.
I would like my wedding to take place in April, May, June, or July. Why do you ask? No, not because everyone else gets married in those months because 1. they are either spring or summer 2. which means good weather 3. Outside reception (no cultural hall) and a dance floor like this :)
My new husband I definitely would have a first dance or two or three on this awesome dance floor, boogie all night long.
I would love to have a full course meal before the dancing and other things (but on a utah budget one can only dream) And we would eat something yummy, like this.
Every girl has to have an awesome, the bomb.com wedding ring for the big "dream wedding" day. So if I had vast amount of money (which I do, seeing as it's a dream wedding) I would have this ring or something along the lines of it! Oh Verragio, the rings you come up with are to die for, gives me chills just looking at this set :)
Drool much? Yeah, me too :)
- My dress? hard one. hmmm
I like this dress but I'm not sure it will be THE dress when the day comes along but I love the red ribbon. yay color. But yea you get the gist of what I'm going for and that what I need you to see. So next point: Colors?
Colors will either be: Red and Yellow. Or Blue and Silver Or Green and Blue
Just some odd combinations and hopefully I would get some bridesmaid dresses that rock the socks off what you see normally...like this:
Cake: Oh man the cake will be the best part!!!!
I love the one on the right so pay attention to that one. I would like that with red velvet cake in the middle. AWESOME!!!!!! I love the drizzling of chocolate down the sides and I'm a HUGE fan of roses.
And to have a wonderful wedding video made about my spouse and I. Kinda like this!
What else is there to the wedding? Hmm well. The Groom...and lots and lots of happiness :)
OH! And I almost forgot the place where I want to get married. That one has been an easy one to answer ever since I was a little girl.
Being married in the temple is non-negotiable.
So in the end I feel like my dream wedding is pretty practical (what do you think?) ...so maybe it is what I want and really hope for or just a fools dream of an idealistic girl. haha. Either way it was fun to find the pictures and stuff. What girl doesn't like imagining her wedding, come on :) Favorite past-time of mine.
As I was thinking about the theme for today's post I was taking a look down memory lane, trying to remember if any of my first dates were the "perfect first date". And I was taken back to about three years ago, after I had graduated, to a date that I was taken on that was one of the most fun and unexpected dates I've been on.
Perfect date wants:
Dancing (if you like the guy)
Lots of talking
Memories that you would like to write down
The date I went on about three years ago was the homecoming dance the year after I graduated at Orem High. Matt Call (Good company) had called me on the phone (I know silly, but I liked him so I didn't care) and asked me if I would like to go with him. Inside I was flipping out. On the outside I was playing it cool and playing hard to get (us girls and our mind games) The dance was on a Saturday night so we figured out times and such and we hung up. I had to figure out what I was going to wear and how I was going to do my hair, this was the last hoorah for high school and I was going with a guy I had wanted to date since I met him at the beginning of senior year. I called up my friend Blue and she helped with my hair, it turned out a little bit like Belle's hairstyle in Beauty and the Beast, but more updated. Saturday night came and promptly around 5pm Matt shows up to my house in his grandfathers suit from the 40's or 50's (it was so cool).
If you wanted a visual here you go:
He gave me a beautiful corsage and we headed to China Lily in Orem to meet up with the rest of the group. We ate some dinner (Lots of talking) and then proceeded to the dance that was being held at Orem High. We saw some friends that were in the grade beneath us and we talked a bit but mostly stayed in our little group of super seniors! Matt and I would always dance the slow dance together (Dancing (if you like the guy)...(which I did) and as the night continued on we would get a little bit closer and a little bit closer (haven't you girls ever gone on a date and the guy smells amazing? looks amazing? and is just amazing? Where you don't want the night to end? THAT: was this date) when the dance came to an end for the life of me I can't remember what we did...I think we have just taken everyone's dates home..he took me separately in his car. (Memories that you would like to write down)He walked me up to the door and we talked a little bit (I looked into those eyes and I wanted to kiss him right then and there, but, "what would he think of me" ..."would we still be able to friends if he didn't kiss me back"..."would his current girlfriend come hunt me down"..."dang he looks good" ... all these things were running through my head as it went quiet, the moon was out and there were no cars around. I could have easily just leaned forward and smacked him square on the lips right then and there...Did I? Did I?
No....too impulsive sadly :(
I said,"My mom is probably waiting for me, so I have to go"
.....Really Brianna?..... LLLAAAMMMEEE! (lame) So besides my little "scared" moment this was and is my perfect date. It fit all my wants and fulfilled all of my needs. And if I wasn't a pansy I could have gotten my first kiss ever with a guy that I had liked for a year or so and we clicked.
Well let's just say: Thank goodness for second chances ;)
but that's a story for another time.
So my perfect first date was with the guy i'm dating now. Woot. He did a pretty darn good patootin good job:) haha. Best. Date. Ever.
I didn't get to sleep till 2am so my day started before I even went to sleep. :)
Start: 7:45 after sleeping in from my alarm clock which went off at 6:30
Social Work class at 8:30 - we got into groups and discussed ethical issues, my group got sexual harassment...yay.
I have a two hour break between Social Work and LDC so I called up my papa in Colorado and talked to him for a little bit. It was a nice conversation. LDC we were learning a new song that has Swahili and Spanish sections and we were trying to get the rhythm down. It was taking a bit of time but now I have 1-ta-te-ta, 2-ta-te-ta, 3-ta-te-ta ...and 1-la-li, 2-la-li, 3-la-li...stuck in my head. Afterwards a friend of mine invited me over to make a chocolate cake, for kicks whilst watching/catching up on the last two seasons of The Office! (love it)
5:15-Zumba down at BYU, and with friend in tow.
Food preparation: pasta, beans and bacon, and another piece of chocolate cake.
Talking with friends roommate about girls and how hard dating is.
Driving home in the cold and staring in awe at the moon above in the heavens before I walked into my house and checked if my mother was home from school.
It seems natural to jump on the bandwagon with everyone else doing the "30 Day Blog Challenge."

I've already been in classes for a full two days now. Wow, it seems like it has been a week at least. I LOVE all my classes, they are wonderful family ridden classes. I love it. Especially my marriage and family relationships class. One of my text book titles, "How to NOT fall in love with a jerk." hmm. good title I think. I probably would have bought that book not for a textbook if I ever saw it on the shelf. But now I have to go BEG my statistics for behavioral science to let me into the class.....
has begun. I have 9 credits as of right now, I need 12-13 by the end of the day. I really wish that I was going to BYU...because... 1. Religion classes COUNT towards credits and GPA 2. There is a certain boy I would like to be there with...(sigh) BUT alas, I did not work hard enough in high school so here is my kick in the pants for not being able to go to BYU. Sad day. My own fault, no one else's. (Even though I sometimes feel that the ACT had a major conspiracy against me) But, there are a lot of good things that could happen this semester, even if going to BYU is excluded from the mix, I have an array of awesome marriage/family/psych classes which I am so stinking exciting for. And I am working and preparing for a little audition I have next Saturday...bum bum bum (That was supposed to sound creepy, but came off as kinda of lame, I apologize) Anyway, Off to school Start of a new semester I would say that life is going too good right now... Life is practically better than my dreams, and I can imagine it will only get better.
