I’d like to start my blog from the end of my date with Erin Spencer. We were doing our interviews at the end of the date like usual when a cop came up and started asking what we were doing. Slightly worried about if were breaking any rules I told the truth about our dates for Mormon Bachelor. Immediately this cop started playing matchmaker. Asking both of us separately what we thought about each other. Then after that he started talking about his family. You could tell this man was completely in love with his wife and was the proudest father. He left us with an offer to contact him whenever we needed love advise. He’s the kind of person you definitely want love advise from. Its people like this man that make you want to be married and have a family of your own.

This cop kind of set the theme for the date. Spending time with Erin I felt happy and content about life. We started at In-N-Out my favorite restaurant. When we first walked in she saw a nickel on the ground so she picked it up and gave it to me for good luck. What a great icebreaker? Everything after that just came easy with Erin. We got our order and moved outside to eat. After finishing we stayed at our table and had the chance to paint some shoes. What a fun idea! It was there that I learned that Erin was blessed with a very artsy side. Just look at the shoes she made for me. It was no surprise that she is studying illustration at UVU as well as fashion design. I also found out that Erin does floral design and also works at Taco Amigo in Pleasant Grove. I was so excited because my sister lives near P.G. and we always eat at Taco Amigo when I visit. Side note: I love their combo burrito’s. Well we finished our shoes and I won’t blame her if she never wears them. Mine, however, looked amazing.

Here is a secret not many know about me: I love entertainers with random talents. The more random the better! Next we went to Downtown Disney to see a Comedian Magician and his Magic Parrot. I love the random idea of a magic parrot. He was pretty funny and entertaining. The best part is that he kept interacting and talking with us. It made things just a little more special. I had a lot of fun there and noticed that I was just happy to be there with Erin because she is one of those people that are just excited about life.

Well back to the end of the date. We went to a fountain where we made a wish and had our run-in with the love-guru cop. Tonight had shaped up to be a great night. The person that ends up with Erin I’m sure will feel as content with life as that cop does. Will that person be me? I’d sure be lucky.

This girl is awesome! Seriously, how is he going to choose? I would say she is one of the most down to earth girls that we've seen yet. I think they would be cute together!

Who could go wrong with In and Out for dinner and a wishing well in the end!? I also love the shoes!!! Great idea!

I've tried so hard not to say anything. Advise is a verb. Advice is the noun. Whew, it feels good to get that off my chest. Nothing personal, Rick :) You've got a great group of girls to choose from, good luck making that decision!

MelindaJ said...

Don't let this girl get away!! Erin is the real deal and she will make you feel good every day! That is just how she is. What a fun date! Just imagine how great a second date would be... She is your girl!

"...but he's way normal." That's debateable. Just kidding Rick! :-) Go get 'em!

Ryan said...

Erin is genuinely a kind girl. She is a keeper for sure. :) As someone who is not a member of your church I was always accepted by her and she was always amazingly wonderful to me.

Kati said...

Erin is amazing! You are so lucky to get a pair of her shoes, I've been trying for years! They are one of a kind.
