JOHNuary

Believe it or not folks, January was not all bad.  The Bachelor is on tv, I finally got Christmas down, and I got to spend 15 of the 31 days of January with John.  John lives in Arizona so getting to see him that much was pretty cool. 

We went to a BYU basketball game with my kids:


We went tubing with Luke and Sammie and John's daughter (he has two kids.):


John and and I got to take a trip to Southern California:


I got to meet John's hilarious grandparents and sister:



We got to go to dinner at my awesome aunt Pandy's house.  We also visited Seaport Village in San Diego: 


Back in SLC, we went to a Jazz game and then went to dinner at Red Iguana which was the restaurant we ate at on our first date.  They even put us at the same table...total coincidence.
 



Come back again soon John, January is too bleak without you!

Linda said...

John, you'd better oomment. . .she gave you a blog "shout-out" for crying out loud!

Linda said...

Now my keyboard is messing up. That's COMMENT!

Ashley said...

I was just going to ask if John reads your blog. Very cute pics. It sounds fun to date and get wined and dined--off course this is also the reason you are not getting 2 hour naps and making pinatas.

Ashley said...

I keep thinking of this as your Johnuary post. Very Grandpa Poole of me!

I'm so glad you're back among the living! (Blogosphere living, of course.) John seems fantastic and you look so great! It's good he's around to put a silver lining on your LONG, frustrating month.

P.S. I love Ashley's Johnuary comment.

Noelle Perkins said...

Yes. I like him, that John boy. I like that he has a good job, is good looking, tall, and is all about you. What's not to love? Valentines should be fun...

Liz said...

John seems great. All but his geography problem.

You guys are cute.

Lesa said...

I am so happy you are happy. But we (I know I speaking for others out in blog land) want more details about John!! Where/how did you meet him? You two look so good together.

Kimmie said...

you look AMAZING brookie! cant wait to meet john, if he's a friend of Sols, then he must be a super nice guy!

Megan said...

I am so glad you're alive! I was seriously getting worried about you -- like, about to call the police. Clicking on your blog today was the deciding factor -- no change from December, calling the police.

Hooray! I've missed you!

John J said...

Linda, that was quite a S/O of a surprise entry! Here's to more money gettaways and time spent with the woman of my dreams- Lehhhsgoooo Brookie!!

Linda said...

Well done, John! Love the JOHNuary and "Johnny Long Legs!" (Sammie's name for John)

SewSara said...

JOHNuary - brilliant! What will February be?
And are you going to blog about the Bachelor? :)

The Mostess said...

Oh, you two loverbirds are so dang cute. I love it. I'm so glad it provided a beacon of light in an otherwise craptastic month.

Lisa said...

Love the title of you post, JOHNuary, very clever. I'm so glad January had some highlights for you. John seems like such a great guy, but the only way to tell is if he stops in at gourmet dinner sometime! Hope you are doing well.
