Hiiiii allll :)
Friday August 31st: Aaron and I spent the day at the river with a few of his friends. I sat on the sidelines while I watch them all jump of a tunnel, making their jump about 15ft. Crazy I tell ya. Once they all conquered that jump, they wanted more. So we drove to a different place that was about 5 minutes away. Where they were gonna jump from and where we had to park was about a 10 minute walk, that I was in no way gonna be able to do. So instead of not going, my wonderful boyfriend came up with the wonderful idea of pulling me on his long board! I sat on his long board and held onto a towel while he pulled me! It was genius!!! It was an all day thing, so by the time they were done, I was extremely tired! But me being tired was totally worth it because I got to see Aaron smile all day long! :)
Saturday September 1st: This day was a be lazy and do nothing type of day! At about 9pm or so, Aaron, my sister Ashley, my cousin Dustin, and myself, decided that we wanted to go bowling since I have a million free bowling games but can only use one per day! We bowl our first game and as we start our second game this group of people come in and start bowling a few lanes down from us. After Ashley takes her turn, she comes back and says "I smell pot". Well I had thought I smelled it but I wasn't 100% sure. From that point on, the smell just get stronger and stronger. About half way through our game I start coughing uncontrollably and my lungs start hurting really bad. I just couldn't handle it anymore, so we decided to leave, not finishing our game. So, I walk up to the counter to pay for our shoes and I ask the guy at the desk "Since, we didn't get to finish our second game because my lungs can't handle the fact that those people came in smelling like pot. Do we have to pay for that game?" He replies "Yeah, sorry, but you do have to pay for the second game." Okay, for everyone who knows me, knows that I wasn't going accept that answer. I say "So, you're telling me that you're gonna make me pay for our second game, that we DIDN'T get to finish because YOU let people come in smelling that way?" Guy at the counter: "Yeah, it's not our fault they came in smelling the way they did (like pot)". Me: "But it is your fault because you have the right to refuse service to anyone. And it's EXTREMELY inconsiderate to the rest of your customers that you allowed them to come in." At this point this poor guy didn't know what to say. Guy at the counter: "You still have to pay." Me: "Okay, I wanna talk to your manager." So I got and talk to the manager and I end up only having to pay for our shoes!! I win!! It's times like this where I really see my mother in myself. :)
Tuesday September 4th: Tuesday was mine and Aarons last day together. And before he left I wanted to have a date night. He took me to the Melting Pot!!! I LOVE it there :) it was his first time! For those of you who haven't been to the melting pot, they give you your food in courses. Cheese, salad, meats, and chocolate! Aaron and I had decided to skip the salad part. So after our cheese course, our waiter came and took everything away and came back with this broth type thing that you cook your meats in. Well 45 minutes later, not even being acknowledged by our waiter, we still hadn't received out meats. So I stopped a manager that happened to be walking by our table and told him that we hadn't seen or heard from our waiter in 45 minutes. 5 minutes later, the manger was back with our food. And he kept apologizing like no other. And to show that he was sorry, he paid for out drinks and dessert! I was pretty proud of myself :) lol It was a really great night, with the exception of that waiter!
Friday September 7th (today): I leave at 9:05 pm tonight to go to california!!! I couldn't be more excited!!!! I miss my best friend and I know we're gonna have such an amazing time! I'll be there from tonight to next saturday morning and from what Mel has told me, we are basically doing something everyday I'm there. I'm really looking forward to meeting all of her roommates and friends and whoever else I happen to meet! Each day, I will be posting something. I've been packing like a crazy person all day and I still feel like I'm forgetting something. I probably am. But oh well, melissa has everything I might need! I can't wait to get to the airport (I LOVE THE AIRPORT!!!) Aaron left yesterday for his 10 day trip to Hawaii with his friends family. So far he seems to be loving it. I'm so jealous that he's there and I can't be there with him! I miss him. I know it's only been like a day in a half but I do miss him lots. But I'm really happy that he is having such a good time :)
I have to go finish up packing. And I'm gonna go to dutch to get one last drink before I leave lol :)
I will keep this updated as much as possible while I'm in california! Thank you for all your support!
