Our day in LA

Whew it's been a while... not much happenin' round here! Still just working while Andy finishes up his last two internships...wahoo! Exciting things to come, we can't wait to see what our future holds.
We met up with our good friends the McQueen's and Swindle's at the Clippers game for a little pre-birthday celebration for Sierra. We had our very own box suite in the nose was awesome! Can I just say that Blake Griffin is one manly beast to watch live!

Before the game, Andy and I spent some time at the Santa Monica Pier laughing, people watching and riding the famous ferris wheel that is much smaller up close than it appears.

I think we might be the only couple that didn't sit next to each other on the ferris wheel LOL!
Needless to say, we had a great day! I'm pretty sure the homeless man we saw masturbating as we exited the parking garage is what topped it off... seriously, SICK TO THE NAST... only in LA!

p.s. sorry if I offended any of you with such adult words, Andy had to explain what it meant to me myself. Well, that's all for now...I was planning on being "healthy" today, but it's raining so I must bake cookies...and eat them...and then cry about how I'm fat...and then andy will tell me to stop being rediculous...and then I'll laugh because I'd rather be fat & eat cookies! kbye : )

Make yours a great life!

With a New Year comes reflection on the past and hope for the future. I feel like I was more of a pessimist than an optimist in 2010. I'm not gonna lie I was excited for 2010 to come to an end. My favorite phrase and theme became "it is what it is". With that being said, there is one phrase I'd like to change, "time heals all wounds" to "time leaves you scars that are a little less painful".
This year I needed a new theme, a theme that made me feel optimistic. I found it while reading through the Ensign. Elder Paul V. Johnson said, "Your future is not determined by the conditions around you. It is determined by your faith, your choices, and your efforts."
So true. I pledge to make mine a great life, how about you? I have much to be thankful for, I truly am blessed...
