I had a very interesting weekend, to say the least. I made a complete 180 out of my comfort zone. But it seems to be good, really good.
I made myself a resolution of this year to be more in control of myself. I am a strong girl, but there are times where I depend on other peoples opinions to go with in my life. I really need to change that. It's my life, and I can do what I want!!!
So, to this weekend. I am attempting to reconnect with a friend. We used to be INSANELY close, but it's been rocky for a while, so I am trying to rekindle that. She, is also getting married. Her fiance is a whole other can of worms, but I am really am happy for her. She went wedding dress shopping on Saturday and invited me to go along. The was my first time watching that. For a girl who isn't into marriage like me, its pretty damn magical. She is super short, like 4'11, so finding her size is hard. But she found one, and I enjoyed it. Her wedding is in April, so I need to find myself a dress and lose a couple more pounds!
So I got home, and really decided to do something a bit nuts. I joined two dating websites. This is something I never do. Honest. I have never been the one to make a move like that. Every person I have dated has been knowing them through someone else and being set up. So dating sites are not like me. But I signed up and immediately started to get guys talking to me. Most where not my type. Either they started calling me baby or hun, wanting my phone number or wanting to know when I would meet them all in the first 15 minutes. Not my style, I barely know you man! Another one wanted to know if i would walk barefoot on his chest. Yeah, no thanks.
But I think I did find a good one. I stumbled upon this one guys page that made me curious. He didn't have a profile pic. So, for some reason, I decided to message him. (I have a pic on mine.) He got back to me shortly after and we were talking. Three things I noticed. One, he uses grammer, SWOON! Two, he didn't go all "Hey baby" on me, and three, I could talk to him very easily. It was like talking to a friend. We talked all day yesterday about random things. Me making an art project that I was swearing at, movies, my ability to not type very well on a smart phone. It was really nice, and kinda made me super giddy.
Before I went to bed, he asked if he could talk to me tomorrow. OMG, who does that?! I love it. Never had a boy ask if he could talk to me. Not going to like, made me have butterflies. Here is the tricky part though, I haven't seen a pic of him. At all. I am a smidge nervous about it, but its kind of nice to get to know him without. I mean, what if he was some serious babe in his pic?! I probably would have never messaged him then. So we shall see.
Definitely not holding my breath on anything, but really REALLY excited to see where this goes.
And all this made me sleep like crap last night, but I think I will let it slide this time.
Also, I am back into tracking my food. I did yesterday. But, not on SP. I know its bad, but I refuse to pay money for their app. So I am going with CalorieCount. It's seeming to work quite well and I like it. There is a permament bar on my phone always telling me how much I have to go calorie wise and such. I really love it. But don't worry, Spark is always my #1.
