Christmas Doin's and Go-in's

Hey everybody! all who we know and to all you guys that show up on our map thing on the bottom of our page that we don't know. Its all good, Lauren is all about blog-stalking, so just as long as you are the kind of stalkers that leave money under pillows and leave presents under trees, than go ahead and peer inside our windows from our lawn. So here goes...

This Christmas season has been a blast so far. Lets see... We scalped tickets to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional, we saw the Temple Square lights, and no more that 12 minutes ago did we pull the E-brake in our car to do a 180 ice-slide in our neighborhood intersection on our newly fallen Christmas season snow. That last one was to spite the old lady who lives on the corner of our street that flips me off weekly for not stopping completely at the stop sign... in the intersection that sees 7 cars an hour. I do slow down and look both ways... the old lady must think I'm #1 is all.
So we went to the First Presidency Devotional and it was great as always. We didn't have tickets so my buddy Brady and I stood out front and yelled, "We need tickets for our wives!" and in seriously 4 seconds I was handed 2 tickets. Then we realized we lied and those two tickets were for us, and we needed two more for our dates, so we yelled again and this guy came up and gave us 14 more tickets! 16 tickets in 30 seconds! Not bad. So I yelled, "I've got 12 tickets!", obviously meaning to give away. Instead of thankful people I heard, "You can't be serious", and "How do you sleep at night"... to which I responded, "Mostly on my side and on my face". You see, I can't fall asleep on my back, weird huh, I always try...but nope. Then I yelled that the tickets were free and to quit bein weird, so we just gave the tickets to an Usher (not thee performing artist Usher, that'd be crazy though if he were there don't ya think?! I mean, what if he was investigating the Church and went to see the Prophet speak?! Awesome.), and we walked in.
It was the perfect meeting to help us feel the Christmas Spirit and President Monson and his counselors were amazing. Then, as we were leaving our killer seats at the bottom of the Conference Center, guess who is standing in front of us... Glenn Beck. I bet you guessed him, but I thought I'd say anyway. So I reached out my hand and said, "Hi Brother Beck!" and we chatted for a sec. Nice guy and great radio show...#3 in the U.S.!
K, so this post would be forever long if I tried to describe everything so maybe I'll just try pictures and a brief commentary...

- Here Lauren and I had floor seats with other friends at the "Delta Center" when BYU beat Utah State. As you can see in the picture, we lost our voices from screaming at the other fans and players. Tons of fun. And I'm positive that I've heard that if you swear at sporting events it doesn't count. I hope thats true.

- Here are the Temple Square lights...always classic. And freezing. And if you think these lights are impressive, look at this next picture!!!

I know right?!?! Can you say saaaawweeeet!!! Well you kinda have to be right in front of it, like right across the street from it, like live across the street from it and drive past it many times a day, and hear the scary Santa talk and wave as you or anything that moves goes really get the granduer of this display of Christmas Joy. Yep, the North Pole inflates every year. But this next

This house is seriously amazing. These pictures maybe get about half the trees they have lit. Seriously amassing. Laur and I were just driving around looking for lights to look at and I saw the tips of a few trees and so we turn the corner...and sha-blam. 5 acres of lights. Sorry Temple Square, you got beat. And I doubt these guys used free missionary labor to put up the lights...I'm guessing an army of otra personas if you know what I'm sayin...cause these were done so dang good that I doubt any missionary could do that. Anywho, go to 400 East and about 1350 North in Orem to see these suckers. They turn off around 10:30 though.
We built this. Now what ya'll... Thats right.

And finally........................

Lauren trying to catch The Christmas Spider! Its a tradition we have. Every family should have Christmas traditions. The End!

5 Things I Never Thought I'd Say

1. "I agree with Barack Obama."

Ok now wait... before any dis-owning, bitter faces (like the kind when you smell a raunchy fart), or verbal abuses toward me...don't hate, just listen. Believe me, I was more shocked than anyone the two seconds after I heard those words escape my lips. But here is the deal, its not that bad for this single, solitary case... he was talking about the College Football post-season and how the BCS doesn't work and that there needs to be at least an 8-team playoff to determine the champion. I was so shocked that this dude actually spoke the truth that I made that outburst I never thought I'd say. He was right, and we do need a playoff in College Football...cause its the sport with the best regular season and the absolute worst post-season. That's the only "Change" I'll support. I'm not spreadin the little wealth I've got and I'm keepin my guns. And I put my hand over my heart during the national anthem. I can't believe America elected this guy.

2. "I think I want some curtains for Christmas."

There was silence and a blank stare for a good 5 seconds after I said that sentence. The pure and absolute gayness of that sentence knocked me into a mini-coma where I was trying to determine if I really in-actuality said that curtains were a desire I had. But ya, I snapped out of it and its true, we need some. So gay or not it would add alot to the house. Plus I've got a hot wife so I'm not worried about gay stuff I might say... I might even start watching Bravo, or wear a turtle-neck. Or not. While on that subject we move to #3...

3. "California voters got it right."

Amazing. Freakin amazing. Its good to see there is still some rational people in that state that believe in good ol' man and wife families. I thought Cali was gunna burn if they voted "no", but I guess it did anyway which really is very sad, really. But at least they did the right thing for once and voted for something that celebrities didn't like. Now lets just see if the judges they voted for will uphold what the people wanted.

4. "My Mom and Dad are the biggest losers I know."

Haaaa. So anyone who knows that the Nelson Family is doing "The Biggest Loser" competition for the holidays knows that the before-mentioned comment is an enormous compliment. Plus its just kinda fun to say that comment in front of them and not get smacked, but rather have my parents feel great love for their thoughtful and kind son. And handsome. And smart. But ya, you guys are the best! My mom has lost over 30 pounds and my dad over 40! Thats pretty kick-A. Its good to be a loser. Especially the biggest one. (Thats a pre-loser picture above by the way.) They look so good! Keep it up!

5. "I love my Bidet!"

OK all you haters, before you make fun let me say...I don't care what you think, bidets are awesome. And if you don't know what the heck I'm even talkin about, its pronounced "buh-day" and its the device that sprays your butt after you do your business... and its cool, so if you don't have one, sorry, you're not that cool. But in case you wanna be cool, look up Biffy Bidets on-line and hook one up. They are cheap and a blast! pun pun pun. But really, lets say by some weird happenstance you get some poo on your arm...just imagine it. Now do you wipe it off with some toilet paper and call it good?! I hope not. So think about how much cleaner you'd feel with one of these bad boys. I love the Biffy, and Lauren is even thats proof it will change even the firmest minds to the contrary. Rest my case.

Alright... About that Honeymoon...

So the deal was Lauren would blog about the wedding and I'd blog about the honeymoon... and I figure 3 months late is better than never. It's crazy to think we've been married about 3 months already (and I know all you old married farts are rolling your eyes, but you know you were the same) and its been a blast everyday. The honeymoon we took to Cancun was definitely the way to start things out!

The long awaited Royal Palms

So the night of the wedding we stayed at this sweet resort in Scottsdale called The Royal Palms and its too bad we couldn't spend more time there cause it was amazing. You have an individual villa complete with courtyard and everything. It was sad we only spent a whole 8 hours there...They made a killing off us haaa, but all worth it considering it was for our wedding.

From there we took off from Phoenix to Cancun! The flight wasn't too bad and the only thing that went wrong was when I was playin with my wedding ring and flipped it back a few aisles. I found it. So we get to Meh-he-ko and it was seriously better than we even expected. The people were right there to pick us up and we got to the hotel in no time. We even had this flippin weird couple there that we could talk about...I mean talk to. Seriously the dude looked like Leonardo DiCaprio off of Catch Me If You Can and his girlfriend was a beast. You had to be there to really enjoy the sight of these guys...I'm not even tryin to be mean. It was all entertainment to us!

So our hotel was tight! It was the Sun Palace and it was all-inclusive... so from the moment we got there the eating began...and it never freakin stopped, I kid you not. They had 5 really good restaurants there, a 24-hour buffet, and 24-hour room service...ALL INCLUDED!!! Not to mention the fridge in your room all stocked with Mexican Coke, bottled water and even my favorite... Jose Cuervo, XX and Corona baby! OK so the 'hard stuff' we didn't touch. People couldn't believe we wouldn't drink there, they kept sayin, "You know it’s free right?!?" But so was the Mexican Coke and they kept that comin so we were happy. Lauren even got a little crazy and ordered a Banana Monkey cause she heard someone else order it haha. "Do you think it has alcohol?", she asked me. Um... Any drink that has a name will light you up... so she yelled "Virgin!" and I think the waiter must have thought she was havin a rough honeymoon cause she yelled that so loud around all the other honeymooners around the pool... but he got the drink right so maybe not. But for real, there was never a time when we were 'not full'. Right when we felt like we weren't sick from eating we ate some more... it was the best. And by the way, I'm still down 5 pounds from the wedding, yep. IAFA. I could drop another ten.

Snorkling like champs

The hotel was full of fun stuff to do. The beach had the softest white sand and the water was like a bath, so nice. You could see fish swimming past your feet, which made Lauren a little afraid and asked it they were sharks cause they were pretty big. A couple next to us heard her and the girl booked it to the shore. But no, not sharks, just baraccuda. We even saw big sea turtles swimmin around. After dinner, Lauren and I would go down on the beach and you would see big ol' momma sea turtles swim right up in front of you and waddle up the beach and start digging big holes to bury their eggs in. Then, the resort staff would dig up the eggs and when they’d hatch they’d let you carry the little turtles down to the shore and let the go in the ocean…only to be eventually eaten by the common predators of the Caribbean, or end up in soup at one of the hotel restaurants. Tasty little suckers!!!

We went on the coolest trips while we were down there. We first went to the Tulum ruin which was a Mayan city right on the beach. It was cool to think of the Lamanites and Nephites walking around and their daily lives. What wasn’t expected was some of the scandalous ladies on the beach there…with kids around! I bet they were French. But it was cool to see the architecture of everything and the iguanas crawling over everything. And oh man was it hot. We were dyin, but worth it. I mean how often do you get to visit these places. It was awesome.

The next day we went on a zip line trip where we got harnessed up and flew over “cenotes” (see-note-ays) which were limestone caves that had caved in and filled with water. I guess I could have said we flew over lakes but that doesn’t sound tropical nor expensive and exclusive…so cenotes they are. Actually the trip was free for all people staying at the resort so very inexpensive. All the excursions were free and included! But the zip lining was a blast, especially doin it upside-down while flying through the forest. My ab muscles got such a work-out that in the picture below it looks like my inflamed abs are really just a full gut from not stop eating at our hotel...but its not... I swear... and stop looking at it. Look at our gay helmets instead.

The next day we went to Chichen Itza and it was so dang cool. We read in Mormon and Moroni about the culture the Nephites and Lamanites, so when we got off the bus and checked out all the sights and temples it was so easy to see that that was where they lived. There was Mormon stuff everywhere in the design of the buildings. I even bought a Kishkumen obsidian dagger! And while we were there it was the only time it rained our whole trip! We had the best weather ever...and in the middle of hurricain season. But the rain came at a good time, it was getting hot and the rain came down like a full-blast shower. Drenched. That bus smelled amazing on the three hour ride home...especially from a couple rows back where Capitan BackHair was sitting.

The rest of the time in Cancun we spent on the beach drinkin virgin pina coladas and banana monkies, watching the Olympics screamin our faces off for Michael Phelps, cruisin around downtown Cancun, and we even went Parasailing on Saturday which was so dang fun. Its the coolest feeling being so high up there with just the two of us lookin out on everything and seeing the fish swimming beneath us.

The whole trip was better than we could’ve hoped for. We had a blast together, saw so many cool things, relaxed on amazing beaches in perfect weather, ate our weight in free food, and just had a great time. I think we spent a total of $50 the whole trip! And that was cause we went to Planet Holleywood downtown for lunch. The room was sweet and the hotel and beach were so nice. I know I didn't post any beach pictures...I was forbidden. Lauren shouldn't have worried cause she looks amazing in a swimsuit, but I guess at the same time it saved me from showing the results an "all-you-can-eat" resort had on my body too, so thanks hun. Although we were sad to come home it was kinda time, ya know. It was nice to have that time just to ourselves, but it was exciting to see family and friends again and start our life together. I think we need to do a honeymoon every year!...Well at least until little rugrats get in our way!

Random Stuff!

OK Ryan is supposed to blog about the auction and our honeymoon for real this time... we will see if it happens:) So it was Ryan's 27th birthday on Monday!! Holy smokes that's a lot of years to be alive! I guess not really, but it was fun! He has had about four different small birthday things over the last couple days. He opened presents in the morning, the afternoon, at dinner that night, then Jason brought over the yummiest ice cream cake for him, and some the next day. Seriously no one is going to be able to think of things to get him for Christmas. Well at least a fun big thing! With all the birthday treats and stuff I swear we eat one thing and then another one comes right before the other one is finished. Of course I eat 90% of them... Special. Anyway, our first couple months being married has been so much fun and I love it so much. Ryan is the BEST and I hope he had the best birthday ever! Love you Ry!!

My sister Shanni and her friend Clara also just got here today! It is so fun. We have tons of fun things planned for the few days that they are here. They are so cute, they flew here with just them two to come see us and Clara's sister Hannah. Mom, there will be pics up of everything everyday:)

So one thing I am really sad about is the cold starting to come... I had to break out all my sweatshirts and long sleeve shirts. YUCK. The winters seriously last forever here!! Ha we haven't written about anything in so long, but one funny thing that Ryan and I went to a few weeks ago was the national sheep dog championships! Ha ha so crazy/amazing. We were just driving to look at some homes in Midway and we were curious to see what it was. Come to find out it was a HUGE deal. People from all over the world were there and it was packed. It was amazing to see a dog run all the way up the whole mountain and bring like 18 sheep around the course on the mountain. I never knew it was such a big deal for people. It was definitely interesting!

Oh and we just got called to be the 14/15 year old Sunday school teachers in our ward! We are both really excited! Hopefully it will be a fun class. We meet in a ward building that was built in 1898!! So so old. I love it.

Here are a few random pics of all the stuff goin on...

Wedding Lo-Down

So this is my very first blog post thing hah and I am just figuring out how to do everything. Ryan and I decided it was about time post about our wedding even though it was over a month ago. It is awesome finally being married and getting all of the wedding plans and stuff over with. It is so much work and I am just happy that I can HELP with others now and not be the one getting married. I really did love it though. It was so fun having everyone come down to Mesa and be there with us. I hope that everyone was able to have fun. Thanks so much for all who helped with everything and brought stuff down for us! I also have so so many pictures that the photographer took of everyone there that I can get copies for you if you want, just let me know!

So the actual day of our wedding went pretty smooth I guess... well as good as it can go in a house full of girls. Ha ha we all cried for the first couple hours and I had to put frozen bags of vegtables on my eyes so they wouldn't be so puffy while my cousins did my hair. The ceremony was amazing and I loved seeing everyone there with us. It couldn't have been better. Luckily there was no opportunities for passing out this time... The day flew by and the reception turned out amazing. We were so nervous about the monsoons coming but there was not a drop of rain. All of the decorations and small things ended up coming together and it looked amazing thanks to all the help from all family. I couldn't have done it without them. Ha ha even down to the video on the wall that showed pictures of Eric instead of Ryan. We finally got done standing in line and left about twenty minutes later... No food or getting to really enjoy the reception. I don't recommend that at all. We left the next morning, bright and early to Cancun, wich ryan wants to write about for the next post... It was amazing! Anyway, even though this is a little late we just wanted to tell a little about it and tell everyone thanks for all the help and coming out of your way to support us. We love you!

Wedding Pictures!! Finally...

Friday, August 8, 2008


Yep, last day!!!  Good thing.  It's weird cause it just feels like a normal friday and that nothing life changing is about to happen. Is that normal? Well whether thats normal or not I'm excited that Lauren will be my wife tomorrow and that this new stage of life is beginning. PLus, its good news for all ya'll cause she make sure this blog is updated frequently!! Haaaa.  Craziness! How fun is this!

Monday, May 5, 2008


WELL, its been a busy few days for the Nelson Boys, I'll tell ya what. We are all about bringin' new girls into the family! I'll let Eric tell you all about his cute girl and I'll get going and tell you guys all about mine!!

So I've been dating Lauren for about 9 months (since about September of last year) and I've known and dated her on and off (lets be honest, mostly on) since late March of last year. She has been in love since our first date (no matter what she says, and if not in love than at least in lust...haha) and I played along at first. Ok, well, before I get beat down I'll just say we both had a ton of fun together and didn't really take each other too seriously at first. We were all about takin it easy and havin a good time and not over thinking things...just being good friends, benefits included of course. But she left for a couple of months and by the end of that summer I was missin my best friend, so it was fun to just to have her back in Utah and see how dating "seriously" (cause we are such serious people) would go. And it's been fun ever since.

So I waited for Lauren's friends and relatives to start askin all the "what's the deal" questions, and then waited even longer to finally hear her say "well we need to start at least thinking of what marriage would be like" before I even said a dang thing. Haa I'm a jerk I know but I figured I'm only gunna have one go at this so I might as well enjoy all parts of it. But I had been thinking about it for a long time and was lovin every minute of it as I waited until everything was right.

And so about a month ago I took her ring shopping and got an idea of what she liked. And being the terd that I am, I didn't really say anything to her about the ring after that...I just let her think "Ryan better be gettin his butt in gear and buy me a ring". And I was. But I wanted to get one made... so as she wondered why I was always late picking her up, I would just tell her I was at the FedEx store (located conveniently next to Goldesign Jewelers haha). So last Monday I went back to Arizona with her and her sister. They were done with school and I had to be at an auction in Scottsdale on Wednesday so I thought it was the best time to get engaged. The plan was to have the ring the Friday before I left and either propose at the auction, or on a hike that I had Chad scope out while he was down there. But the ring wasn't done of Friday...or Saturday...or Monday (the day we left to Arizona)...or Tuesday...but on Wednesday guess what?! Nope, still not on Wednesday...or Thursday. So finally a freakin week after it was due they shipped me the ring in Arizona on Friday morning. It turned out very better have! And they even paid for the shipping and took off a hundred bucks, how thoughtful. I mean, all I had to do was delay my flight home and mix up my plans and make her wait. No biggie.

Anywho, that Tuesday I was at the mall with Lauren and her cousin and I could overhear Lauren saying, "Well I can't look at dresses til I have a ring", and I overheard her cause she said it loud enough for the old deaf lady walking next to us to hear. So I said, "Well hun, maybe if you'd let me know what you like I could have an idea and finally get you one!" Then came the "ARE YOU KIDDING ME's" and "YOU ARE NOT SERIOUSes" and so on and so forth. So I said, "Well lets go look right now". And after going into 4 or 5 ring stores and acting all excited so as to not make the sales people feel too bad as we walked out without buying a ring, she asked if I finally "got the idea", and I said I did hahaha. I'm so freakin funny and tricky that I can't help but to think I'm hilarious.

Friday morning was the tricky part. Thats when I asked Big Daddy Davis the big question. I wanted to talk with him earlier in the week but whenever I was about to, someone, as if on cue, walked in the room and sat down. So I got up at 5:12 a.m. Friday morning and sat in the family room and read my scriptures until he came out... since that was the quiet time in the Davis house. So sure enough he came out and I said, "So uh, what would you think about me marrying your daughter?" And he looked straight ahead and said, "Ryan, are you sure you want to wish that upon yourself?" And we laughed and had a good talk. He said it would be a great thing and approved, so now all I had to do was pop the question to Lauren.

So on Saturday morning Lauren and I (both of us destroyed our legs in this BodyPump class the day before that her aunt teaches) got up to hike Piestewa Peak (also known as Squaw peak...can you believe it) in the middle of Phoenix. Both of us knew we were going to die but I thought it'd be extra funny if we got tore up as we hiked 1.2 miles up the steep peak on our busted legs. Sure enough, we were hurtin, but I loved it cause I knew what it was for. So as we hiked I stopped about a quarter way up the trail and got on a knee and said, "Lauren, will you..." and she cut me off and said, "Oh stop it and get up". So I finished and said, "will you...wait for me as I tie my shoe?!" A swift "You're retarded!" came back at me. So about halfway up the trail I stopped, got on a knee and said, "Lauren, will you...take a look at this cool rock i found?!" "Ahhh, so DUMB" is what I heard as I looked up and saw her back as she had already started back up the trail 10 feet away from me. I hurried and caught up only to hear her say, " I already know you don't have a ring so quit tryin to be funny." Oh, but I was funny. Very funny. Witty even. Plus I'm an Office fan and took that cue from Jim, even though I already wanted to do it before I heard Jim say that on the just made it that much better cause it made Lauren even more bugged cause she knew the joke from the show. So, three-quarters up it was time for the last joke and I took a knee and said, "Lauren, will you...wait for me for a sec, I'm so tired." She belted out a "You're so retarted! Not even funny at all!" But a guy who was hiking by us heard the whole fake proposal and her response and laughed his head contrare mofrare, I was funny.

Anyway, we got to the top only to find twenty other people up there and I was so bummed. There was no real place to be alone. So I looked around and to the left I saw a peak that was a little higher, but you had to do some actual climbing to get there. I convinced Lauren to come up with me and there was just one little spot for one person to sit. So I had her sit and I knelt next to her cause that was the only real option. It was perfect. We looked out over the valley and had that peak all to ourselves, just us. I looked at her and was so excited. I was so happy that I had to pull out the ring before I let some tears out cause they were on their way... I had been waiting for this, and even though I had no idea how I was going to do it once we got to the top, it was perfect. So on May 3rd at 10:30 a.m. I pulled out the ring, and asked her to be my wife. She looked and the ring, then me, then at the ring, then me, and then said, "Are you serious?!?! YES!" It was a feeling I won't forget anytime soon. So we put on the ring only to find out it was a little tight and cut off all circulation and turned her finger purple immediately haaa. So after lots of tugging, some spit, and some tore off skin, it came off and the finger was saved. Luckily it ended up fitting just fine later.

So there you have it, I'm a lucky man. Only took 26 years to find my wife...the exact amount that I needed. I couldn't think of a better reason to wait that long than to find her. I love you Lauren! So for all you reading this, keep the weekend of August 8th or 9th open! Cause thats when this couple is gettin hitched!! Oh and PS... For all you who think this was sappy or whatever, what'd you think was gunna happen at the end of a blog entiltled, "ENGAGED!!!"

Right After The Proposal
Look at that smile!!!

Finger turning purple

Desperately trying to rescue the finger

On Top Of The World

Ahhh Yeahhhh

Here are some other pics...I couldn't get some of them to turn

What Are We Coming To...

Ok, so Romney is out, only Democrats are left (including Mr. Lame-Poo-Stain John McCain, D-Arizona), people don't seem to care about their country, football is over, Arby's doesn't have Homestyle fries anymore, AND the groundhog saw his shadow. Dang you Punxsutawney Phil and your miraculous power to make winter continue. I never really noticed how a rodent can influence the way I dress, pretty incredible actually. But ya know, I decided that just because things don't always happen like I think they should, life is still pretty dang fun.

I mean, like President Hinckley said, "I've never been more optomistic about the future". And he was and is a prophet and could forsee so much. So why not go about my day and have fun, even when I know the rest of the world wants to throw itself in the trash. They can elect a reject to run the country, only serve curly fries which I just discovered, make TV's too expensive for me, and all that junk... But life is still good. Cause hey, Cafe Rio is still tasty, Slurpees are as good as ever, I rented my basement out, BJ's has pazooki's (Cookies and Cream can't be beaten) and I'm dating possibly the cutest girl ever. And when I take Lauren to the movies, guess whats there to accompany our date...Cherry Coke. See, good stuff is everywhere. Oh ya, this one time like two days ago we went to the dollar theater and I made her put this gallon of Simply Lemonade in her purse and sneak it in... it was awesome. People were so jealous of my citrus enjoyment, I could tell even in the dark. But that's just the point, so many good things. So when life is crap and so many bad things are happening aound you, life is dealing out lemons... Go ahead and just buy yourself a thing of Simply Lemonade at your local store and it'll put a big ol smile on your mug. Especially when its snuck in a theater. Thanks Lauren.

Back from the real this time, I think...

K, I'm so sorry for not talking to everyone for so dang long. I work non stop it seems and when I want to write a blog due to everyone hounding me, I still realize my computer is busted and I also realize I'm broke and can't fix it AND I'm a slacker above all so thats probably the most honest reason. But I do love these things so I wanna be better at writin crap haaa.

Life is good though. The house, MY house, is basically done. I mean I can sleep there, the heat works, I can go #1 AND #2 there, and now I can shower there too. Which means I have hot water and all the appliances work. Only thing, and its a bigee for any place to feel like a real home, NO TV yet. Sad day. So it still feels like my house isn't a home yet. I guess people before the 1900's only lived in houses, not homes. I love this dispensation, thats for sure.

Other than that I just hang out with this really cute girl Lauren all the time. Lots of fun. However, I just realized that if I was a little more cheap on our dates I could have that TV for the house to make it a home. Oh well, she's better than a TV. Unless we're talkin about the new Samsung 52" 1080p flatscreen LCD... then I might have to really ponder haha. I wander around BestBuy day dreaming sometimes... But alas, I've come to see girls are so much better than TV's, especially this one, so thats why I spend most of my free time, and even my not-so-free-time, with her. Like when she comes to Home Depot and Lowes with me haha, she's a trooper. So I guess she is partially to blame for my lack of blogging also. Except for that she always tells me I need to quit bein a dork and finally blog again...

This one is kinda a short lil post. I love the word "lil" by the way... you know, like lil smokies. Tasty! Costco usually has great lil smokie testers on saturdays by the way if you don't wanna wait to go to some Mormon wedding reception to get your next lil bite of one. Anyway, I'm takin more pictures now so the next post will be more exciting and Bob Ross colorful like. Oh, and one more thing, another In-and -Out knock off just opened up right next to my house! Just like it. Its called EZ Take Out Burger... "California's Own" in fact... These guys are gay but hey, tastes the same...that is if you really like In-and-Out and are not just a weird trendy Utard and think its the best thing ever when in fact its just a dang hamburger. But ya, I call it E.Z.T.O.B. for short. Now who's gay! haaaa K, I'll put pics up soon.
