So, basically, just going to ramble about what's been going on recently. Last week we had Jacob and Kalli over (Jacob is one of the vendors that Brandon helps at work) for dinner. They travel all over the world, so we thought we would give them a homemade meal and dinner at home. It was fun to have them over, and we also had Daniel and Hailey over too, which I think helped because Daniel is so good at driving conversation. To be honest though, I was a little nervous, just because it was a work thing, and I wanted to be a good hostess, and make Brandon look good (because he is!) :) We had a good time, so I guess things went well! It's funny though. Stuff like this makes me feel...not old exactly, just....older? I mean, honestly, what do you think of when a husband comes home one night and says, "I think we should invite an important someone from work to have dinner with us this week." I think of mom and dad. That's their thing. That's what mom and dad do. I guess it's just weird to see that I'm at a more grown up part of my life than I thought or feel. I still feel really young actually. I think I want to keep it that way though. I've always wanted to stay young, and I think I always will. :)

We also had our housewarming party this weekend. We invited sooooo many people, I was a little worried as to how we would fit everyone in, but things worked out. I have learned one thing from this though. From now on I am definitely rsvp-ing to invites. It makes things sooooooooooo much easier when you know how many people will be there for sure so that you can know how much food to get, etc. It ended up being that I could end up having 21-45 people show up, so I just rounded out to the higher end and made a lot of cookies. Of course, we had the lower end come, so we have lots of cookies left over that we've just taken over to friends and to ward choir. There's no way I'm eating that many cookies!

Speaking of which, I've decided that I am going to cut out sugar and yeast from my diet. My mom said that she recently found out that people who have been on antibiotics for an extended period of time may have issues with yeast and sugar which can cause problems in the digestive tract and stuff. I've had my own share of health issues in my life, and some of which I am still going through, where I've had to be on antibiotics for years and a little in between. My digestive system hasn't been what it could be, and I wouldn't be surprised if the two were related somehow. So, I figure I will give this a try and see how I feel. The good news is that even if it doesn't solve the problems I am facing right now, I will be healthier and probably feel better and look better, so that's cool! The only thing is that this is going to be much harder than I thought. Sugar is in EVERYTHING and you can find yeast in many ordinary places too! I mean, I've already run into problems this morning with breakfast. Cereals have too much sugar in them, so that's one thing off the list. I figured eggs would be good, but I can't have toast due to the yeast in bread. I thought, maybe I can have a granola bar? But that has lots of sugar. I thought about hash browns, but they are a carb which turns into sugar, so I'm not sure if that works...So I got so desperate that I thought, maybe I can have peanut butter on saltine crackers? But NO! To my amazement, saltines have YEAST in them! I couldn't believe it! So, I ended up having a couple of eggs and a lot of water...I'll have to fix this somehow. Oh, something else I had no idea there was yeast in, is cream of chicken soup! Now, what the heck is yeast doing in SOUP???? My mom warned me that lots of canned soup has yeast in it, but WHY????? Ingredients in foods these days are very strange...

Let's see, what else? Oh, I've been put in charge to do the program for the ward Christmas party. I think what I would really like to do is the part of the first part of Savior of the World. It would be amazing! The only problems I see though is we don't have a stage at our building and I'm not sure the choir would be interested, and I'm not sure if I would have enough volunteers. I guess I would just recruit friends from elsewhere in that case...As far as a stage goes, I could always ask bishop if we could have the party at the stake center where there is a stage. I think a stage make a lot of difference. Well, I hope things work out though. I would LOVE to do that!

Well, I think I've rambled enough...the only other thing I can think of to put on here is the video of the week, called Vampire Knight- Zero's Chance, a remake of a previous video by TheWingsofKanna starring Yuuki and Zero from Vampire Knight, and anime that I would definitely recommend, although it didn't end the way I wanted it to. :P Booo! Oh well, still good. Enjoy!
