Well, our first date went great, and so did our next few. I thought things were going pretty well, but I was still dating others, just keeping my options open. ;) haha Anyway, Jeff asked me to go to the drive in movie with him and a big group of people. We were sitting there with our friends I think it was X-men 2 that we were watching and Jeff leans over and tries to tickle me (haha classic) and so I reach down to stop him and he grabs my hand. I was thinking oh no, what do I do! I knew I liked him but I was also really interested in another boy that I had gone out with a few times even before Jeff was in the picture. I knew I had to stop playing a figure out what I wanted. SO, I took my hand back as soon as he gave me a chance! Poor Jeff, after that he laid down and slept through the rest of the movie!
After the movie was over we started to head home. I was so nervous because I wasn't sure what to say. BUT, I knew I had to say something so I just told him that I was kind of dating this other guy and I didn't want to lead anyone on. BLAH, but he handled it very well. That night I went and I knew I had to decide what I wanted. OBVIOUSLY, I decided Jeff was the right fit for me. :)
p.s. My sister Natalee is going to have her baby in the morning!!! WAHOO! Little Zoii will be here tomorrow! GOOD LUCK!!! :)

Well, I thought that I would be able to document our life a little better as a blog instead of a journal since I haven't written in my journal in ....well, we will just say a long time! :) SAD!!!
I guess I will give you a little catch up. Jeff and I met at BYU-Idaho in May of '04 at the Nordic. Jeff claims he ate there everyday but I don't believe him because I ate there nearly every day and don't ever remember him, but apparently I was at "his table". Anyway, he came up to me and said "Do I know you from somewhere?", nice line huh? At the time I was done with boys, so I didn't give him much thought. The next day we saw each other again at the administration building on campus where we both ironically worked. So everyday for the next three weeks he came into my office and asked me when I was going to ask him out, I just told him that I didn't ask boys out. So finally he came into my office and said we are going out Friday at six. I didn't think to much about it, I just figured it was another free dinner. :)
Well, Friday rolled around and Jeff picked me up. We drove to Idaho Falls (with those of you who aren't familiar with with the Rexburg area, Idaho Falls is 30 minutes away from Rexburg and is a "BIG" drive from campus). We went to dinner at Johnny Carino's with Jeff's roommate Logan and his date. While we were at dinner we were all talking about our age and Jeff asked me how old I was, I told him I was 18 and there was silence for probably 20 seconds. It was fine with me because I was still out for a free dinner. He was 24 so he was a little shocked :) After dinner we were headed home and then he remembered that there was a sale at Old Navy. haha so he asked if I would mind if we went (that is the closest mall to campus, it was a rare occasion that you go to Idaho Falls so you need to get everything in). So we ended up at Old Navy where Jeff then tried to buy me a pair of flip flops. That was a bit awkward especially on our first date so I turned him down. (those flip flops from then on were know as the flip flops of commitment, since Jeff thought that it was weird that I turned down a free pair of shoes)
On our drive back to Rexburg we talked and talked. I felt totally comfortable with him and had a surprisingly good time. I talked to him better on the first date than I had with some of my old boyfriends! It was then I knew that he was different... :)
p.s. He did know me from somewhere. We figured out that he was friends with one of my old boyfriends and had seen us together once and made fun of my old boyfriend for dating such a young !!! haha
