Happily Ever After

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who fell in love with a handsome prince. They met one day in the local village. The princess was taking her usual walk to get her endorphins going and the Prince was hungry and looking for a place to eat in the village... castle food can be so tiring. The princess was rounding the corner headed toward the forest when she bumped into the prince. He looked into her eyes and couldn't believe he was staring at the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He new immediately she was the girl of his dreams. They began talking the princess wondered how they had never met before. She would remember those piercing blue eyes. And a smile that could brighten any room.

From that day on they never left each others side. Life couldn't get any better than this. One day the prince took the princess on a walk to their corner where they met. He got down on one knee and said "will you make me the luckiest man in the world? Will you be my wife?" He told her he would love her forever and they would live happily ever after. And that is what they did. They lived happily ever after!

I realize I'm not living in a fairytale... nor am I any sort of princess... Me graceful... yeah right... I'm not expecting perfect.

I'm not expecting some guy in a suit of arms to come riding up to me in white stallion to tell me I'm the girl of his dreams as he rides me off into the sunset... although that does sound nice... I'm pretty sure if that happened I would be laughing at him.

I want someone who loves me. Someone I can call my best friend. I want someone I can go to church with. Someone who won't leave me feeling lonely. I want a man with a good smile and kind eyes. I want a man who can take a joke. I want a man who can laugh.

One day I'll find that kind of man. One day he'll take me in his arms and tell me that he loves me. One day... today is not that day unfortunately but with a list like that its gonna take time! So perhaps tomorrow will be the day or maybe the next day... someday! :)

Funny how things work out...

Its been a while since I've been on this thing... I guess I've been a bit busy. My last blog showed just how frustrated I was. As most of you have seen that has changed quite a bit.

In november I decided to explore all of my dating options. So I joined LDS Singles. I was already on EHarmony... Anyway that increased my social life by like 100% I was averaging about 3 dates a week... it was great... and I got some really good awkward dating stories out of it.

However funny enough the guy I'm dating now I met on trax... Now before you go and think that I'm crazy let me explain. We were both waiting for the train in freezing weather so naturally we start talking about the weather. This is where the conversation went all the way into work:
Nick: Where are you from?
Me: Texas
Nick: What Part?
Me: Dallas
Nick: What part?
Me: Richardson
Nick: What part?
Me: By Plano?
Nick: I used to live by Berkner High School.
Me: Wow my siblings went there.
Nick: I wonder if we knew the same people... Did you know an Ann Marie Goodrum?
Me: She was in my ward growing up!
Nick: She was in my ward too... I was in the Garland 3rd Ward.
Me: NO WAY!!! I was in the Garland 3rd Ward.
Nick: Wait! Whats your name?
Me: Crystal Crowther
Nick: I'm Nick Rupp!
Me: Oh my heck you have got to be kidding me!

So for those of you who don't know... Nick and I went to pre-school together. I went to all of his birthday parties at chucky cheese up until he moved when he was 11. His dad was our home teacher for 3 years... Oh and just to add to all of this he actually works at Zions bank which is literally just down the street from where I work...

I mean seriously does this really happen to anyone??? Anyway we are now dating... taking it slow of course so we can get to know each other. Even though it feels like we've been dating for months we officially started dating December 23. He is seriously the cutest guy in the world... but if you talk to him he prefers to be called studley!!!

Anyway just thought I'd share my random story!!! ;)
