my good samaritan moment

So I have a roommate who just wants to find love (who doesn't??). I decided to win "best roommate ever" and take matters into my own hands.

Last night she was out of town so I baked a lot of DELICIOUS cookies and thought up seven boys that my roommate knows and that would be date-worthy. She doesn't know any of the boys well, so I figured they could use a little encouragement! I wrote a cute/flirty card for each of the boys, signed my roommate's name, and dropped the cookies off at their respective homes (doorbell ditching, of course).

Will keep you updated on roommate's flourishing love life!

game plan

I am back in the mormon dating scene, and am excited to take it by STORM.

I thought I probably needed to develop a game plan to ensure maximum marriage potential. Here's what I have so far:

1. go to EVERY party/singles ward activity/social gathering possible.
2. look good!

Any more ideas?

I have been too busy watching New Moon to update on my blog how much I LOVE IT!!!!! What did you think? Please let me know!

Some highlights:
- jacob without his shirt on (x1000)
- charlie! hottest dad ever!
- emmett!!!

Someone told me that I only like this movie because the men are hot. NOT TRUE! I will explain why later. But the men are all hot because the entire premise of the movie is that these are the best looking people (er, vampires) ALIVE, so of course they have to be good looking. Charlie and Jacob are just bonus. :)

Speaking of New Moon, if you buy tickets on, do it through this blog so that I can get $$$$$ (see link at bottom of this page)! And you can buy fandango gift cards too--after all, New Moon is the perfect Christmas gift (and I don't mean illegal bootlegged copies).

roommate date fiasco

Great news. I just came home from the temple (subtle mention of my righteous behavior) and my roommate was on a DATE. She gave me the dish and I had to share it with you!

So on Sunday we were driving home from church and we got stopped at a red light. She was driving and rolled down her window to talk to the boy in the car next to us. Then she asked him ON A DATE! She is amazing.

Tonight she is making dinner for their date and she gets a message from some lady she met two weeks ago at the nail salon while she was getting a pedicure and apparently they already had plans for dinner tonight but she had forgotten about it! So she told the random lady to come to dinner at our house, too.

She figured she'd be safe because she'd just get the roommates to join her expanding dinner party. BAD NEWS: every single roommate ditched her! So it was just the THREE of them for dinner and the random lady brought a bottle of wine! LOL.

Is this why girls shouldn't be asking guys out?

how do I go about dating mormon boys?

Advice, please.

Where I've Been...

Well, world wide web, it's time to share with you another classic example of why mormon girls stay single...or at least why this one does.


Seriously. How did I find the ONE non-member in Utah County? And why, after I found him, did I love him?????

So I decided I would try out the old motto "flirt to convert" when I met a handsome young(-ish) man while in line at The Rio. We laughed and talked and before I knew it we were eating together!! Imagine my surprise when he used THE SWEARS during our convo! Quickly I realized he was indeed a gentile, and I decided that it would be okay for me to still spend time with him, seeing how good looking he was.

A month later he had taken up all of my time and I was having to remind myself that this would go nowhere! Luckily, it did go nowhere, and I am back to the BLOGGING world and to the world of dating mormon men. Boys, get excited. :)

coupon + update

First of all, my roommate was looking at my blog (HOW DID SHE FIND IT? I THOUGHT IT WAS PRIVATE!!!) and wanted to buy a Shabby Apple dress (hot!) and I told her I'd give her a coupon code. Free shipping if you enter "carousel"

Now for the important update/dating faux pas?!?! I went out with this boy and I totally wasn't interested and we were eating dinner and I finished my lite salad and was still so hungry...and I looked over and saw my date still had HALF of his sandwich left so I asked if he was going to finish it and he said no so I asked if I could eat it and I ATE. IT. ALL.

He asked me out again. :)

Maybe I should try this in the future--do everything opposite of what I think I am supposed to do and then I will have hoards of men at my disposal!

What's YOUR update?

Being Bridget

So I LOVE the (edited) movie Bridget Jones's Diary. It is amazing! And it is MY LIFE!

Get this: she is single and SO fun and all of these random, gorgeous men are in love with her!

Okay, I’m still waiting for that last part.

My latest potential love was a DISASTER. I was walking around downtown Provo and saw this darling El Salvadorian restaurant and decided to pick up some pupusas. While I was waiting in line, this random semi-attractive man approached me and we began chatting. He asked for my number, and the next week he called and we decided to meet up for lunch.

He was less good-looking than I’d remembered, but he was fun and easy to talk to, and he mentioned a few times our going out dancing or finding better pupusas sometime. Then at the end he mentioned he had daughters.

Daughters?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I tried to pry a little to find out more, and he told me his daughter lived with her mother an hour from here. Then he said “some people find this weird…” and I asked him to give it a shot and he told me that he was still married. When I asked why he was still married to the woman who lived an hour away he said “No! she’s my ex! I’m married to another woman—my life—who I still live with, with my two other daughters.”


Well, that about ended the lunch. After expressing my disgust, I took off. On my way out, he asked if we could still go get pupusas sometime.

speed dating at church

So I have this roommate named...Kimmy. She is a little "trashy". For example, today she SKIPPED Sunday School because she was "speed dating" with men and she now has a crush (10 out of 10!) on all of them!!!!!!!

Let me explain speed dating. People are very slow going from one meeting to the other because they are busily moving from man to man, flirting to the max. It makes everyone VERY late for their church meetings! Church speed dating. We'll see how it works for Kimmy!

How are us punctual to Sunday School girls ever supposed to compete?

a second helping!

Guys, Joe is FREAKING OUT! He doesn’t want to talk to Amelia about her missionary boyfriend…but he has to know…so he wants ME to do it instead!!! Should I? I’ve only met her once!

Haha…this reminds me of how I always hear people saying they want their friends to talk to their girlfriends about them. What??? If my boyfriend had his bff come talk to me about how great he is and how I was a fool to not appreciate him more/dump him/propose right away, I would think both of them were INSANE!

Did I just answer my own question? :)

good dish!

So my friend Joe started dating this girl…we’ll call her “Amelia”. Amelia is super cute and fun (so he says). Anyway, she apparently has some “ex” she would occasionally mention to Joe. Joe got bored on facebook today at work and decided to see if he could find Amelia’s boyfriend on there.

He did.

She had just BARELY written on his wall and said:

“Happy Anniversary, Baby!”


So he looked further. She hadn’t written on his wall for six months (about the time Joe met Amelia for the first time at ward FHE). That wall post said:

“I can’t believe you’re leaving on a mission!!!!!! I will miss you SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!”

AND his (the ex) facebook relationship status is “in a relationship.” He showed me—it’s true! Then he asked “what does this mean?” Yikes!

Just read this blog post and I am LOLing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sick! who would ever want to go out with someone with bag gas?

Anyway, I saw THE cutest boy at work today!!! He is new. wow. But is dating a co-worker a bad idea? I mean, I am there 8 hours a day and I could get a lot of QT with my crush if I just had a crush on my co-worker. Right? Any experience???

My friend Laura dated her co-worker and it was A DISASTER!!! Yikes! He was an intern and she was his boss and then he asked her out and she went for it and then she had to fire him and so he had to dump her! all in one conversation!

hahahaha....and then this other boy I know who is a lawyer said he had a crush on a JUDGE and he wanted to ask permission "to approach the bench" and ask her out!! GOOD IDEA?!?!?!? haha. There went that legal career. :)

Advice, please :)

What do you think about NCMO?

I remember my first day at BYU when someone asked me about NCMO! I didn't even know what it was!!!!!!!!!! Now, twelve years later, I have heard a LOT about NCMO. Provo is such a crazy place. :)

Anyway, my friend Jocelyn is SO depressed right now because she had random make-out with her crush. I told her to NOT DO IT unless she was in some relationship with him. But she told me I was wrong...she learned the hard lesson that T IS NEVER WRONG!!! Now she is super confused about what is going on and is super sad when he doesn't call/etc. Bad move, Jocelyn!

Book update

I mentioned last week how I was reading this book. Well, turns out she is MARRIED and her husband is hot and rich and she is UNhappy?!?!?!?!?! This book is obviously fiction!!!

Anyway, this led me to some rather deep thinking. If that can't make you happy, what can? Good news--the book kind of hints at the answer. :) I guess it's better to be with someone that likes you for you than to be with someone that is hot and rich but that you can't be yourself around! Brilliant!!!

So August goal: pick boys based less on their "dateable resume" and more on how much I like being around them!!!
Does this mean I need to start crushing on my bff Paul??????

Okay, you may have noticed how TACKY this blog is becoming with all of these ads. But the proceeds are going to a very important cause...


So start clicking! :)

Shabby Apple just came out with their new Fall line...I need this!!

p.s. free shipping (on orders over $125) through August 15th if you use the coupon code FallingforFall


long awaited update!

Sorry guys--I have been SUCH a slacker! Now I am back to blogging. :) How happy are you that you won't be so bored at work anymore?

So many updates needed!!!

First of all, I went on my blind date last week and it was SUPER AWKWARD. At first he was semi-cute and I thought I'd give him a chance, but then my other friends didn't show up so it was just the two of us and we didn't have much to talk about and my food was nasty and I was home by 9 p.m.! Maybe that was the best part?

Do you guys ever watch Seinfeld? And there's an episode where they are asking Elaine about her date and she yada yada yadas the whole date and they say "you skipped over the best part!" and she says "no--I mentioned the lobster bisque." Brilliant!

Speaking of Lobster time I was on a cruise with my friend and she wanted to order the Lobster Bisque and I warned her about the alcohol in it and she asked the waiter and he said they pour in the alcohol after they cook the soup and I told her it wouldn't cook out but she said she still wanted it!!! HAHAH! And then she got sick!! Yikes!

editor's note

There have been some negative comments about my being unemployed. No!! Perhaps this post confused you, but I have been gainfully employed for over a year! If you had only read earlier here, you would have realized. :)

Literary Moment

I thought I'd expand this blog to be less about boys and more about culture. I'm reading this book and it is AMAZING!! This girl in the book is living MY DREAM!

Get this--in the book this girl is young and single and dating some LAME guy and doesn't think she is super cute. Then she hits her head and has a coma and when she comes to she thinks it is 2004 but she has AMNESIA and it is really 2007!!! And she can't remember anything about the past three years, but now she is HOT and SKINNY and....get this...MARRIED!! And her husband is gorgeous and rich!

Seriously--dream life! Can't wait to see what happens next. :)
