School has been going well for me. It's been really easy so I've been happy. Bre's classes are ridiculously difficult and I feel really bad for her cause she always has tons of homework. But thats what you get when you are in upper division classes and only a year away from graduating. I'll get there eventually...I'm in no rush.
Thanksgiving was ok. I had to work so that sucked, but Bre had a good time up at Nikki's house (her sister). Bre also had her Wedding shower this last saturday and it was good for all of the family to get together for her. Everybody was so so so generous and they gave us so much stuff for us to use in our new place! It was really humbling to get it all. We're excited to finally move in together and be married and have our own place and never have to leave each other at night! Thats probably going to be my favorite thing about being married. Not having to say goodbye to her at night. Its the worst when you are all tired at the end of the night and you have to DRIVE forever to get home. Anyway, only 16 days left and were counting the hours down!

Look at Mack's big white feet...hehe
I look tired or drunk or straight up busted(above)....Anywho. This was also a special Sunday for me because Mack let me go to town. I have this weird obsession of plucking things with tweezers. I love to pluck my eyebrows and others and sometimes I can convince Mack to let me tweeze some of his chest hair. Well today he let me pluck some white hairs out of his head!!! Don't worry he said it didn't hurt.
I am no stranger to white hairs myself, but Mack was pretty surprised about how many I found on his head. He wanted to take a picture with them. To my disappoinment he didn't have a lot.
What a day...general conference and plucking hairs. :D

Tonight we went to Sammy's with all of Bre's roommates. It's this little hole in the wall joint right in downtown Provo right off center street. It was ok. I've had much better burgers for the price we paid. The "real pie milkshakes" were pretty good too. They put an entire piece of pie into the blender with the ice cream. It turns out pretty good. The people working there were really upbeat and seemed to love working there. The music was so loud in there that we couldn't hear the waitress when we were trying to order. One thing that they had that was really good that I loved was their sweet potatoe fries. They tasted pretty darn good with their fry sauce that they mix up themselves.
Me and my guurrrllfriend.

Right after church
So we're back at my house again for a nice night of homework. I have a test on tuesday that I've known about for a few days and for whatever reason I have procrastinated studying all the way til now. I've read through my notes one whole time. I have an essay that I have to prepare for as well. Bre has a ton of homework too. A lot more than I do and I just sit here the whole time distract her until she gets upset. I dunno why I do that and why I don't just sit my butt down and study. I don't even know why I'm writing this. I don't have time to! Oh well. For whatever dumb reason I like doing this. I wish you all a fabulous Sunday!

On a brighter and hungrier note, tonight we cooked a little dinner as we usually do when I come to Provo and we study at her place. We ALWAYS have something with chicken in it. I dunno what it is, but we both LOVE chicken. And not to brag or anything, well actually, yeah I'm going to brag, I cook some really good chicken. hahaha though it really isn't that hard to cook. But I chopped up a bunch of garlic and and cooked up all the chicken and garlic and put it over some good rice and soy sauce. It was awesome. and I know you all wanted to know about what we ate. I was just trying to think of crap we could take pictures of and there really isn't anything. So this is us cooking.
Bre is really good at making rice :)
Me and my garlic chicken I'm so proud of.

P90X is kicking my butt again. I had to take a 4 day break because my back was spasming but I got right back into it. I decided to do that week over again so my first "30 days" are going to be more like "36 days" I'll just get a few more workouts in before I go onto the 2nd Phase of the program. I'm starting to see a few changes. When I first started I could only do 2 pull ups, not I do 8. I've gone from 240 lbs down to 226lbs in a matter of 3-4 weeks. It's killing me, but I like it at the same time. I HIGHLY recommend it to any of you out there who want to get stronger. I've still got a little more than 2 months of the program to go and I can't wait to see where I'm at! Plus I'll be closer to marrying Bre. . . . :)
I also finished my book about the New York Mob tonight. It was REALLY good. I got a good look at how the Mob here in America was actually run since the early 1900's. I'm looking for a new book to read now. I might delve into a Jeffrey Deaver novel. He writes almost entirely fiction based murder mysteries but they are really fun to read.
I know part of blogging seems to be putting up pictures of everything I'm doing but I seriously can't find any excuse to even take my camera out of its case. I have nothing to take a picture of. I'll try and figure it out sometime and update you all on what I look like. hahaha
Oh yeah, and Bre has nothing to add. She agrees with all of this. Whatever that means.

Well, sorry if you wanted to go out and read the book. I still highly reccomend it. There are obviously a lot of details left out and it is a much better read than the paragraph you just got dragged through. I'm onto my next book "Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire" It talks about Rick Cowen, a NYPD detective in 1992 who unearthed the hard evidence that the FBI had been chasing for decades: proof of collusion among mob families in NY to extort billions of dollars from the nation's biggest corporations. All through the garbage pick-up industry. It's a true story by the way and I'm really excited to read it.
Tonight at work (I'm at work right now) I decided that I don't really like fried food that much. A few days ago at a FHE delio I had fried chicken and it made me sick, then tonight at work the chefs had the day off so we got take out chinese and it was just a bunch of fried stuff. I ate it a couple hours ago and I feel like grease is coming out of my pores. It feels disgusting. So I'm going to try not to eat it. I'm going to have to tell Breana that we can't have that deep fried turkey at our reception anymore. I know how much she wanted it but I don't think I can handle it. :) hahaha, just kidding Bre. Welp, thats all for tonight. I wish you all a degreased evening. Grease Out!

School has been crazy. This is my hardest semester yet even though I have the least amount of classes I've ever taken. I guess this is what happens when you are a junior and start taking challenging classes. I almost wish I could take this semester off to do wedding things because there is not enough time in the day to do both. Its a good a thing I got fired so I don't have to worry about going to work. (I'll explain that in a bit) My psych personality class is ridiculous and philosophical, my advanced writing in psychology is a lot of what seems unnecessary writing (go figure..writing in a writing class...what a joke), my cooking class gives me a break from abstract thinking, thank goodness, and it feeds me, and then there is Russian. WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING!?!?!? Even though I have a private tutor, Mack, I suck. Russian is a ridiculous language. I have emotional breakdowns daily doing that homework. I have Russian everyday so I get no breaks. I've come to acquire test anxiety. We have quizzes every other day and I freak out. My teacher calls on people at random to answer questions and I always get asked the hard questions or the ones that I don't know the answer to. Just my luck. She knows I'm terrible so I think she is out to get me. Thank goodness for Mack. The only reason I'm barely surviving is because of him. I'm sure he will be happy when I'm done with this class too so he won't have to wipe my tears anymore and can focus on his school rather than helping me every second.
Oh yeah... my job thing... I was working as a student secretary for the Advancement Vice President of BYU. My boss was Kay who was the actual secretary for Fred, the VP. Well Kay is a nice lady but kind of scatter brained. She would forget to tell me things or forget that she told me certain things. In the summer I was working and one day I show up and Kay is not in the office. So I decided to just stay and work. Then I found a note she had written to Fred saying she was on a trip for the next 2 weeks, which she neglected to tell me. So for the next two weeks I didn't go to work and figured she would call me when she got back. She never did so I tried calling her once and she didn't answer. Then Mack came back from Texas so I didn't bother seeing if I should work for a week and assumed she would call me if she needed me, like she always had. No calls for 2 weeks from her. It got to be the first week of school so I called her to see what the deal was. She called me back the next day and asked where I had been for the past month. I told her I was right here. Because she hadn't heard from me she assumed that I had "moved on" and gotten another job. As if I would have just quit without telling her. I explained how I found out she was on a trip and thought she would call me like a normal boss would. She then basically told me that she didn't need me anymore to help her in the office because the new VP could do things himself leaving less work for her. Then she acted all nice nice and was asking me about my sister and Mack and asked if it would be hard for me to find another job. I was like whatever lady. So that is why I no longer have employment. It was just really weird.
Well I hope this post is satisfactory to Mack. I must begin my homework now...after eating a few cookies first though. :D

(well, kinda. there is actually a different word for homies but the online translator didn't know what it was and I can't spell it out since I don't have a Russian keyboard, so this'll do. For those who speak Russian, it will be funny)
So she started all of her classes. She is taking the Russian class, a cooking class (lucky me!) and two Psychology classes that are going to be REALLY fun (and by really fun, I mean incredibly difficult and there will be tears...lots of them). So on top of all of this bull crap that she has to do for school, she is spear heading the planning of our wedding in December! Of course I'm always there for her with emotional support and help when she wants/needs it, but she is doing so well! I'm taking a lot easier load than her with a grand total of 3 classes: American History (same as the American Heritage class at BYU), a Public Speaking class, and a Biology class. It's still a fair amount of work but Bre sure does seem to be working a whole lot harder than me. I just can't wait til we are living together so she can help me with homework on a nightly basis. She's so smart! Marrying someone this smart and who remembers literally EVERYTHING is going to be blessing and I dare say it'll bite me in the butt. :)

I just started my second week and it is going great! There are 6 hardcore workouts each week for 90 days. So I have a solid 11 weeks to go. I'm so excited to do this! There is an Ab workout that they call Ab Ripper X and holy crap it is the hardest thing I've ever done. It's 11 or 12 different moves of 25 reps apiece. I can't even finish it! I'm starting to try and finish the whole thing at 15 reps and I'm more successful. I hope I'll get up the the 25 reps and do the whole workout how its suppose to be done. I'm just excited to get ripped again! I let myself go during the summer because I just didn't have the energy to workout while I was in Texas and I lost most of my muscle. But its coming back! Thanks a lot to Kurt and Noelle for letting me borrow it!!! Off to a nice yoga sesh by P90X!
