Doctors Appointment

Today I had an entertaining experience as I went to the doctors office. At the end of my appointment, the doctor said she wanted to take a blood test so she sent me over to the lab. I hadn't eaten anything all day and the girl drawing the blood couldn't seem to get a good vain so she kept poking me, over and over again. As I was watching her draw the blood, I could feel myself getting a little dizzy. After about 5 minutes of constant poking and prodding, she drew all the blood she needed and sent me on my way. On my way to the check-out desk, I could feel myself about to lose it. When I got about 10 feet from the check-out desk, I felt myself starting to fade out and..........BAM! I hit the floor! I must've landed pretty hard because the doctors came running from all over the office. The next thing I knew, I was waking up with blood all over my hands. Lucky for me, I was at the student health center which means they handle everything from routine check-ups to...of course, stitches. So a half an hour and 9 stitches later, I walked out of the office with a band-aid on each arm, stitches on my head, and a headache that I'll never forget. I thought I was supposed to feel better after going to the doctor.

Freezing Cold

After living in the cold for the last four years, I consider myself to be pretty well adjusted to cold weather. That is, until this last week. This week I experienced the coldest days of my life! After 4 days of temperatures ranging from -20 to -30 degrees, I have officially had my fill of winters outside of Arizona. The week was full of excitement as we began each day with a 20 minute collaborative effort of jump-starting my car due to the cold. Once we both got our cars running and out of the snow-filled parking lot, we had to deal with the pain of parking and walking to our classes in the unbearable cold. After one day of not wearing gloves, I'm pretty sure I developed a mild case of frostbite. The good news is that today warmed up to a balmy 16 degrees. After this last week of pure winter bliss, I think it's pretty safe to say that we're ready for an Arizona winter!


Our First Cakes

Since it's our last semester here at BYU-I, we decided it was time for us to take a laid-back class that would actually be fun. After constant pushing and prodding, I finally convinced Ryan to take a cake decorating class with me. We are now going into our fourth week of the class and have come to the conclusion that while my cake decorating skills are lacking, Ryan's are superb! In my defense, Ryan's mom has been decorating cakes for about 30 years so he's grown up watching his mom. If you don't believe me, check out our first cakes. Can you guess which one is Ryan's? (This was his attempt at making rosette's and shells manly).

Guitar Hero Masters

One of my pet peeves if when people ask me the question, "What are your hobbies?" As if it already isn't sad enough that I don't have any interesting talents or hobbies, this questions forces me to publicly state that I am talentless, or at least I was. For Christmas, Ryan's parents gave us Guitar Hero III for Nintendo Wii. Although we may not be good at the actual guitar, we have both have found a special interest in this remarkable game. Yep, that's right, we are guilty of spending many late nights playing this game. Besides the fact that we feel really cool getting to play our very own guitar (customized with Guitar Hero stickers), we've actually turned out to be pretty good at. So from here on out, if anyone asks me what my hobbies are, I'm going to be forced to tell them that I am a Guitar Hero Master!
