One Year Anniversary!

Well I clearly took a little break from blogging but I am back! I will just fill you in on whats been going on with us the past month and a half :)

-Garren finished spring semesters with AMAZING grades :) He is so smart. He also just finished Microbiology in Maymester with an A. He is studying hard for the GRE in a few weeks.

-He is taking Chemistry I and II this summer semester.

On May 6th we celebrated our very first anniversary. I can’t believe we have been married for over a year now! It has certainly flown by, and has been the best year of my life. I love being married to my best friend.

To celebrate we stayed at a resort in St George. It was perfect because it was a nice getaway, and we didn’t have to spend half the weekend driving in the car to get there. He spoiled me :)

I’m still working in the hospital, and we recently took up swimming.  Now that we have been married for a year becoming parents is always in the fore front of my mind. No this is not an announcement. Its still about a year in the future, however I am definitely preparing now by losing the weight I gained over the past couple of years, saving lots of money, and ye,s even refinishing baby furniture. My need to be a mom is unlike ayn other desire I have ever felt, and I am determined to be the best possible mom I can be.

Garren applies to grad school this summer! Its very nerve racking. I know he will get in and I just need to have enough faith. I am a planner by nature, and not knowing where we will be moving to in a years time Freaks me out! Luckily I also love adventure, so I am very excited about moving some where new with him :)

I got my wisdom teeth out Thursday. It was long over due. The first day was HORRIBLE. I told Garren I would rather deal with pain than be numb any day of my life. They tell you to take an antibiotic and the pain meds as soon as you get home… Well when your numb for 10 hours after it and cant keep water in your mouth that’s virtually impossible. Pain I can deal with. Just another reason (though significantly less important) as to why I will never get an epidural when having a baby.

Two favorite new movies : The Avengers and What to Expect when Your Expecting. SO good!

Sorry I don’t have any pictures!



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.
