Just Be

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all will make it memorial. This weekend has been full of, for lack of better words, stuff. I think I can go through them for you. Let’s start with Friday. Justin and I went to my aunt’s house and babysat for my cousins. I was so impressed with Justin. He played with Jack the whole night, and Jack seemed to have a lot of fun. They played in the sand box, and had a water fight. Justin tried to hold Sierra, but she cried, which is very typical of her. She did seem to like him as long as he didn’t get too close. It was kind of amazing, the whole thing. Him just wanting to come with me and him being so good with Jack. Justin even wants to go to Jack’s t-ball game on Thursday and with Jack and I to a movie on Friday. Saturday was prom. We took pictures at Justin’s house and then my house, and more at Dawn’s house. His parents were really cute. They always look so in love. I hope my husband and I look that way someday. We all ate dinner at the Ludwig’s house. It was very delicious. Then after a few stops it was off to the ball! Oh wait, that’s next month. The prom was great. I already mentioned a few things about it. Nikki, Maria, Jake, and Eric didn’t have too much fun I’m sure. But Justin and I did. We danced the entire night. First of all, I have never before danced for an entire dance. Second, I have never before danced like that! Third, I have never before danced with one person the whole night. But after Saturday, I have done all of those. And every single one of them felt wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. After prom we all came back to my house and watched Jerry McGuire. It was pretty good, not as good as I anticipated, but good. Nikki slept over after prom. We woke up half an hour late on Sunday, and met Justin at Perkins. We then went to church. It was a pretty good service. There was a baptism. It was cute. After church, Justin and I stopped by Derek’s and let Bailey out and ran to his house so he could change. Then we came back to my house and my family and Justin went out on the boat. We stayed out there for a long time. It was a lot of fun. I got some sun, well not really. I laid under the sun and it was warm, but I don’t think I "got sun." Boating was a lot of fun. I think Justin had fun too. He is so nice to my sister. I am really glad, and Ash likes him too. He is also really nice to my parents. When we returned home, we ran to Derek’s and then we all went to see Bruce Almighty. It was pretty good, pretty funny. It was a good day spent with my family, but it was not over! Justin and I went to Derek’s and walked Bailey. Then we ran to his house, got pizzas and his suit, and cam back to my house. We went in the hot tub. We are so close. We can sit somewhere and talk, or not talk, and it feels so comfortable. It is 12:42. We came back in, ate pizza, and settled down to watch Armaggaedon. Well, Justin watched it. Ashley and I fell asleep. I fell asleep in Justin’s lap. I guess I held his hand the whole time. When the movie was over, he woke me up, kissed me, and left. I am glad he can feel so comfortable in my house. Today is a new day. Sometime today, I will probably go over to Derek’s with Justin. Otherwise, my day is wide open.
