You Can't Beat Momma's Cooking

There is a truth in life that can never be overturned.  You can never be as good of a cook as your mother, and I have proven it this week.  Using yesterday as an example I will explain how one can only dream of being as good of a cook as your madre.  

Yesterday I was craving some cinnamon rolls; but not just any cinnamon rolls, the kind of cinnamon rolls my mother makes.  As I was house sitting for parents I decided I would try to make these cinnamon rolls.  I pulled out the recipe and with a little help from my friends we followed the instructions.  We did exactly what the recipe said and made cinnamon rolls that looked just like my moms.  BUT they did not taste like my mother's, and it was at that point I realized moms have a special touch.  They can make any food taste great.  I can slave away all I want and never be able to make as good of rolls as mi madre.

I hope this holiday season we all realize how awesome our mothers are and that we enjoy their cooking, because you won't ever be able to replicate it.

Happy Holidays!

MCOMM Assignment - Help Someone More Stressed Than Me

Brother Shayne Clarke gave us the assigment in MCOMM to help someone out this week who was more stressed than we were.  This was actually a pretty easy assignment since I wasn't really that stressed, but all in all I did help others who were stressed to be less stressed.

This past Thursday and Friday I helped my mom to be less stressed by going home and staying there for the two days to tend the house and be there for my little sister while my parents were away.  This was actually a really fun!  My little sister and I went and got some Arby's which is always declicious.  We made sugar cookies AND I even helped clean up the kitchen and unload and load the dishwasher.  Overall I believe I made it less stressful for my mom by allowing her to come home with a clean house and that no one was harmed in the process.

I also helped others by cleaning, playing sports, eating food with them, and overall just being there for them.  I hope that I made a difference this week! Can't wait for Christmas!

Thanksgiving with the Muppets

This Thanksgiving was great!  We had a lot of really good food and it was a very nice day to relax.  We have so much to be grateful for in this country.  We seriously have it so good!  Even with all of the economic hard times, we still have to remember that we live in the promised land!  Life is good and can only get better!

After we are lots of turkey and watched some good ol' football we headed to the theater for The Muppet movie.  Classic, and that is a fact.  I have loved watching the Muppet movies in the past and this one does not disappoint.  I suggest everyone go and see it! Live your childhood again and laugh at the Muppet humor.

I am very grateful that I have my family and friends.  I am grateful for the school I go to and the education I am receiving.  I am grateful for the country I live in and for the soldiers who have fought for my freedom.  I am grateful for all of the food on my plat and I am grateful to be alive.  May we all live long and prosper.

Sushi and Sherlock

Last night I was able to meet up with some of my good buddies for Nick's b-day.  It had been a long time since I had been able to see any of them, so it was great to be able to spend some time with them.

We started off the night eating at Happy Sumo and eating lots of sushi.  It was really good, but I couldn't help but think that I was eating raw fish, and that kind of messed with my mind.  We then went and wandered around the Riverwoods.  We stopped at a lot of fires and messed with those, and we are thinking about starting a smore business where we sell smore materials to others so that they can make some smores around the fires.  Brilliant!

We then went into the Toy Store and found some sweet toys... I now know what I want for Christmas!  We then looked at art, went to the ginger bread house contest, listened to some lady sing, and almost got a horse ride.

Then to end off the night we went and watched Sherlock Holmes.  Such a good movie!  Can't wait for the sequel!

Lazyness is good every now and then

This Saturday was one of my most lazy days of my life.  I stayed in my apartment twice, once to go buy something and the other time to drop off Heather.  Other than that I was in my apartment being lazy and doing homework, but you know what? It was exactly what I needed.  I needed to relax one day.  Every other day of my life is just non-stop action, so one day of just nada was good to give my body some rest.

Today was one of the best Sabbath's I have had in a long time.  It was ward conference and all of the talks were just what I needed to hear, it truly inspired me to become better.  Then the rest of the day was spent hometeaching and being home taught.  Hometeaching is great, and helps me feel the spirit so good and gives me the strength to be better.

I am read for the coming week and look forward to dominating it.

The Marvelous Wonderettes

Yesterday we went to The Marvelous Wonderettes at the Hale Center Theater in Orem.  A very fun show.  I was chosen to be Mr. Lee, where I was one of the girls crush.  The girls would sing to me, they pulled me up on stage, hugged me, the works.  I recommend that everyone should go see it if you like a good laugh.

The story is about four girls who are chosen to sing at their prom.  You go through all of their fights, love stories, jokes, etc.  All of the girls had great chemistry on stage and were all way fun to watch. 

Two of my good friends were in the show: Xandra Wille and Kelly Hennessey.  They both did a great job, and stole the show in my opinion.  If you go, be sure to tell them they did a great job.

This is my blog for the week. Not the most exciting thing, but hey, what can you do?

Busy Busy Week

This past week has been one busy week!  Not only have I had a lot of different homework assignments, I have also had different competitions, and family matters going on.  Its been a fun week, but yet I look forward to a less busy week.

I participated in the xTax competition put on by PWC.  That kept me way busy.  Busier than I wanted to be, but because I made a commitment to my team I decided to go through with it; even though I would have rather of just been home sleeping.

This weekend I got to go to my girlfriend's family Halloween party.  It was way fun! We got to carve pumpkins, eat lots of food and even watch some Halloween movies.  All for a good good time.  My pumpkin was obviously the best, since I am the master at carving pumpkins.

Well for all you who look at my blog, which I am pretty sure is no one, see you next week.
