This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

How Can I Help?
So I forgot that I'm having 10 of my friends over my house...tomorrow!! As soon as I got out of work I ran straight to the grocery store, bought $50 worth of stuff that I'll never use or need except for this one meal...this artichoke hearts. Keep in mind this is the girl that lives on Lean Cuisines...but I can actually cook. As I'm in the check out line I get a text, "Whatcha doin'? Cleaning? " John trying to be funny because my house is a disaster, but he doesn't know that the girls are coming over not funny!!! But I smile anyway. I could answer right away and I got another one, "What not funny?" and so I set my bag down and typed, "I'm in panic mode, I'm having a dinner party tomorrow...I have to clean, I have to cook, I have to do everything!!!" His reply? "What can I do to help? I can't cook, but I'll clean and provide stress relief" And at first I was going to let him come up, but I didn't want to make him give up his gym routine, rush out of work and then sit in traffic for an hour all to help me cook and clean. I really wanted the "stress relief" though...really, really.

So he checked in on my progress a little later,"How's your progress going Pretty One." We chit chatted back and forth and then finally he said, "When can I tackle you again?? I'm cleaning my place so that you can come down this weekend. We can go out, we can stay in, we can go out and then have a long, lazy morning in bed. It's up to you." Well to be honest, I wanted to hop into my car and run down to his house right now, but instead I said to him, "Now I really can't wait for this weekend!!"

He's got me...hook, line and sinker. Now if I can get him to say, "Good night sweet girl," I think I'd faint. Victoria's Secret? Is that you calling my name? I thought so...
