So I kinda sorta like this guy who may or may not be slightly amazing.
When I first decided to go to California I'll admit that one of the first things I did was look up how far away Dillon and I would be from each other. He was doing ops at Travis AFB in Fairfield, CA but when I looked up how far we would be, it was about 2 hours. I knew that was too far for me to drive there and back in one day, and plus I didn't really feel comfortable getting to my grandparents' house and saying "Okay great, can I borrow your car to see my boyfriend?" That would turn me into the worst granddaughter of the year, I'm sure.
So once I got here Dillon asked for the address to see how far it was. Once he looked it up he said "that's far :(" and we left it at that. I didn't want to make him feel bad if he couldn't get a vehicle to drive out here and back in one night. We texted as usual and then all the sudden I get this picture:
Uhh...what??? I was so confused...this was the front of my grandma's house! I look out the windows but don't see anything. I go to the front door and look through the peephole and there he is, walking up to the door!! I threw the door open and jumped into his arms; I seriously couldn't believe it! We only got a few hours together but those few were amazing.
It was a weekend in October of 2012. Dillon had a three day weekend, but I didn't. For awhile we were thinking he would come spend the weekend with me in Tucson but then he found out that he had baseball practice that weekend, so it wouldn't work out.
About a week before Dillon told me that he sent me a package and that it would get there no later than Friday! I was super excited, Dillon always gets me great gifts.
That night I had a chemistry exam and then afterwards I went to my friend Becca's house to hang out. Dillon kept saying that the package should be there and while I was excited to get it, I didn't want to go home on a Friday night to hang out by myself just for a package. I asked my roommate Toni if there was a package delivered for me and she said no, so I just stayed at Becca's. Dillon was adamant though, insisting that I should go home because he really wanted me to open it and then have a nice Skype session.
Finally, around 10pm, I decided that it was time to go home. As I was driving home I called Dillon and we talked for a while. He said he was in his room watching TV, but it honestly sounded like he was outside. I kept thinking "maybe he's here to surprise me!" but tried not to dwell on it because I knew if he wasn't there I would get upset, and that wasn't fair. We hung up right as I told him I was driving through the gate to the neighborhood. I turned the corner to go to my house....and there. he. was! I slammed on the brakes and jumped out of the car, running into his arms. And I just couldn't keep the tears from coming. Like, you don't understand, I was pretty much bawling I was so happy and surprised. He thought something was wrong and I was upset but I was just like no! I'm really really happy!! Haha.
As always, go on over and visit my beautiful friend Alex! She's talking about that time she went to Whistler, BC!
