Black Mambas

I am so mad I didn’t bring my camera to Garren’s intramural Basketball game tonight.Not to worry, I wont make that mistake again. I will for sure post pictures next time. Any way the second I got off work Jerry and I headed over to the school to to watch Garren’s game. Today was their very first one. Their team name is the Black Mambas, naturally. Every single guy on that team I went to high school with. Ha ha

Carlee and I have our little wives club to cheer on our men. Its super fun! I love watching them play. Garren is crazy cute :) The game was close, but our boys pulled out a win. :) Is it weird that every time some one gets a little to aggressive or Garren ends up hurt/on the floor I get a weird Mama Bear syndrome? Like I will drop you if you hurt my man. Ha ha Normal? I dunno.

Mama Bear Syndrome

This weekend is going to be the BOMB! First, Friday night we are driving up to Provo, and staying with Kali and Shelby. Saturday we get to go through the temple with Kendra and Brianna for the first time! I cant thing of a single thing I would rather do Saturday. The fun will continue with the LAKERS vs Jazz game! BAH! I am so excited. We have HORRIBLE seats, but I don’t care. I am going to a Lakers game with my wonderful Husband. Can’t wait for the weekend!

P.S. I get my HIDAscan tomorrow. Freaking out!


Out of School, Yet the Tests Continue

Ok so for the last 3 months I have constantly felt nauseous, random stomach pains, and a lot more tired than I usually feel. Its been annoying at best. I didn’t have insurance last year, so I just lived with it. It wasn’t unbearable. However now I DO have insurance (Thank heavens for a good job!) and its time to figure out whats wrong with me. I have given blood 4 times in the past ten days (my arms are all bruised) and had an abdominal utlra sound this morning. My blood tests keep showing heightened levels on my liver enzymes. Basically it can mean a lot of things so they never give an opinion on what they think it is. I am getting a HIDAscan on Tuesday to see if ite my Gallbladder causing this mayhem in my body. So keep it in your prayers that we get answers here soon!

Prepare yourself, I am about to get mushy. Garren is a rock-star of a husband. He has been taking such good care of me. He NEVER complains, and is 100% supportive of every thing I do. He makes me feel like the most important person in the world and that I can literally succeed at anything I put my mind too. I’m so blessed to be married to this man. I can’t wait to have children with him. He will be a great Daddy :)


What a Trooper

In the last three months poor Larissa has been stupidly sick. She has had a upset stomach ache on and off during that time. This whole while she is doing such a great job of being strong and not complaining and just going on with life and I was very impressed because if that was me, freak I would be done with it in a week or maybe two but no not her. Hopefully it will get better soon so she doesn’t have to keep feeling like crap. Oh and no she is not pregnant haha which everyone seems to think it is.

On a slightly different note Intramural basketball at the university will be starting Monday so look forward to some funny stories and updates regarding that. It really is a laugh, I mean last year I almost was punched out, Kyle White got a T and the “Boys from LA” got dominated by a bunch of football players. Well with a new name and a year under our belt the Black Mambas look to dominate the B league with some dazzling passes and sweet threes.

Last thing to note, the Lakers are picking up the slack and got a win last night against the clippers with a whole team effort. Larissa and I…haha inside joke…that’s for you babe, hope to go to a Lakers jazz game on the 4th of February as we go up to Kendra’s temple session! Hopefully all things work out.

Well the Allred’s have been doing good I think I might not hate updating this blog once a week kinda fun.

Ps: Last night my parents called we were talking and they said they were having rib-eye stake and basil pasta for dinner Larissa then insisted we must go over, we did and all in all it was the greatest stake I have had in my life, so juicy and an amazing flavor. Nice one Larissa;)

This is me currently in class, I know the glasses are slightly large.


My Unfortunately Dramatic Morning

This morning was the worst. Seriously. I woke up feeling crazy nauseous, which shouldn’t be new. I have been feeling nauseous on and off for months, but it was really bad this morning. (Considering I am still getting over the flu) Any way I dry heaved for about half an hour, which in my opinion is worse than puking. You at least get some sort of relief from throwing up. Then after I showered I went to blow dry my hair, low and behold it trips the breaker and the power goes off. This ONLY happens when I blow dry my hair. I have an ECO friendly hairdryer for crying out loud. So I then proceeded to do what any self respecting 23 year old woman would do in my circumstance. I laid on the bed and cried like a baby, saying such things as “The whole world is against me,” “I will never get to go to church again,” and “I am probably going to go to Hell.” Like I said, dramatic. Any way my amazing husband came to my rescue and not only consoled me, but then proceeded to blow dry my hair for me. How sweet is that? We eventually made it to church. and while I still feel crazy nauseous I don’t feel as doom and gloom.


On a happier side not. Last night Garren and I laid in bed for 2 hours talking about New York, London, and Ghana. I love being married to my best friend.


New Blog!

I have recently been introduced to wordpress, and I love it so much more than blogspot! Maybe I shouldn’t say that? Any way it doesn’t matter. I am now moving this blog here! Exciting stuff I know. I should probably update our blog more often, and hopefully this will be good motivation.


Garren is back in school and loves all of his classes; which will surely prove to be beneficial to his GPA. Its a heck of a lot easier to excel in classes you enjoy. He is still working for the university, and wakes up every morning at 5:30 to get to work by 6:00 am. I hate waking up and not seeing him next to me. You do what you gotta do right?

I am working at Valley View Medical Center. Its a great job and I am very grateful for this blessing in our lives. When I am not working I am addicted to trying all of the fun crafts and recipes on pinterest. Pinterest is basically made to turn uncreative souls like me into house wives. I’d say its doing a pretty good job :)

And no, we aren’t having a baby. I figured if I wrote it here I wont get asked for at least 2 weeks…. yeah?
