1. Tell us about today!  
Tony and I went with a group of my friends to the butterfly biosphere in Lehi. We were not prepared ahead of time that IT WOULD BE 85 DEGREES IN THERE. It was a cooler day outside, so we were all dressed too warm. But the butterflies were cool, just flying around all over. (Shoot I forgot to ask if butterflies poop. If someone knows, please fill me in on this). ONE LANDED ON MY ARM for a minute, so that was exciting. 
We went to Cubby's. Again. We like it so much that we just didn't mention to my friends that we had gone there the day before. After, we went back to Tony's house, made a really cool blanket fort (he must do this all the time because that thing was up in 5 minutes) and watched a movie. 
I was really tired today, was really busy, and I was in a weird mood again. So I worry that sometimes I was mean to Tony or just distant. I also noticed my emotions were  all over the place, so I'm trying really hard to chalk that up to my being tired and not define the relationship by it. But I did notice that distance seemed to impact Tony. We'll probably talk about it in coaching tomorrow. 

2. Tell us a story from your childhood.

This question helped us talk about our growing up experiences more, so that was fun. Was that why it's here? Haha dear internet, I hope you all feel closer to me after seeing these stories and pictures. The first picture doesn't have a story. I'm just a fat baby eating batter off a mixing whisk and it's one of my favorite pictures of me. Fast forward to the same girl who loves her food. I was at an apple festival and they had an apple pie eating contest. I was hungry and like pie, so I signed up. And guys, I just kept eating and eating and I finished that whole pie before anyone else. Which gave me the winning title! It's still one of my proudest moments. And then the next year I tried to defend my title, but I got so full that I puked. So if you're wondering what halted my competitive eating career, it was that humiliating loss.

3. What is something you have learned about your bae this past week that you wouldn't have guessed on day 1.

He puts BBQ sauce on his salad. He probably doesn't do it every time he ever eats a salad, but he does it with Cubby's. I've never seen anyone do that, but I tried it tonight and it's not bad. I'm not gonna do it on my salads, but I don't think he's a weirdo anymore. Not super deep or profound, I guess.

4. Scale from 1-10 how positively do you feel about your relationship at this point?

5. Today was a weird day, not because we didn't have fun--we totally did. But even in having all this fun and seeing him get along with my friends, my emotions just didn't neutralize out. I know it won't stay a 5, but right now when I'm really sleepy and filling out this log, that's what it is. Find you a bae who will laugh at your really dumb jokes and excessive comments during a movie when you are just too tired to stay focused or obey movie rules (BUT NOT FAKE LAUGHTER, NEVER SETTLE FOR THAT BECAUSE THAT IS THE WORST. Thankfully, Tony never does that. Only real, genuine laughs from this guy).

3. What is something you have learned about your bae this past week that you wouldn't have guessed on day 1.

a.  That she farts during Jiu-Jitsu and burps during movies  JK sorta 

b. I have learned that she is an incredibly compassionate person. She has such a kind heart and she is very empathetic toward others. It is common to find these traits in people to some degree, but she has developed this trait to a new level. It is inspiring.

I am at a seven this weekend. I have had a lot of moments of self-doubt and some insecurities come up, so it is causing me to second guess where I am at with Melanie. I feel like my weaknesses are so blatantly in my face that it is hard to relax and just be myself. That being said, I am still excited to spend time with her and continue to get to know her.
