I really hate Leslie isn't doing an ACTUAL link-up today, but she's been a bit busy this week so I totally understand! Anyways, I have to do a confessional this week because... here is the BIG confession Ladies! What you've ALL been waiting on... it's Official!
Firefighter D & and I are in fact in a relationship! :)

Yep... I've been keeping this secret for a week now.. last Saturday night before we went to dinner we sat and talked. Last week was rough and my mini-mid-life, mid-life crisis mental break down Thursday night didn't help, but he was there for me the entire time. I was so unsure about us, he's unlike anybody I've ever dated, but as one of my friends reminded me yesterday.. HE IS DIFFERENT than the others and that's probably for the best. Obviously the others were all similar and they didn't work out so maybe this will! :)

A couple months ago on CBS Sunday morning they interviewed Brad Paisley and his wife (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) admitted that she didn't fall for Brad at first even though he was head over heels about her. I could relate! She admitted that, “He says it was love at first sight for him, and for me it was more like love at first month or two.” Read the article here! Anyways, I felt the same way, but for the first time I wasn't lovestruck and head over heels! My head and my heart actually came together this time and my head said, "no wait, let's get to know him before you fall for him."

I have NO idea where this could eventually go, but I do know that I'm happy when I'm with him, he supports me in everything I do, he's a God loving God fearing man, he's an everyday hero who puts his life on the line daily and loves it, he calls me out and tells me how it really is, he listens to country music, he cares about his family and always puts others needs before his own. And he has a lot of other qualities on "my list" (of standards)! :)

I will be including him in more posts and filling you in! This is the first exciting thing to happen to me in quite sometime so beware.. you may get tired of hearing about Firefighter D and our oh so interesting life!

Have a wonderful weekend y'all! I'm kicking it off with pizza and movie (out of Redbox) date with Firefighter D! So excited! Haven't seen him since LAST Saturday!


  1. aww congrats girl! That's so exciting! I'm so glad you decided to give him a chance, he sounds like a real keeper! :) Can't wait to see how things work out, I know they'll be great!

  2. I love this post. Letting your heart and your mind take the time to get to know him before letting yourself fall is the best way to have it happen. I feel like you get to love them for the right reasons that way.

    Congratulations on the new relationship :)
