Happy Valley TAKE ME AWAY!!

April 30, 2010

I had planned with Lupi to head out to happy valley this weekend just to getaway and check out what Provo had to offer, mainly to just relax and meditate ok maybe not meditate but just be on the Ranch where horses roam the streets with there owners LOL. Ok over exaggerating again, ok not really cause in Lindon they done built a trail for the horses and there owners to ride on LOL. But really its just relaxing out there nice and quiet, and the company is the BEST. I called up Saane to tell her that I'm headin' out and she was super excited and so was I cause work was just dragging just thinkin' about Lindon. I never heard back from Lupi she's been busy with family and whatnot so I decided to head on out the drive was horrible with the rain and all but I did get there safely, when I got in saane had dinner ready bless her heart she didn't have to but she did, she made a pasta dish with italian sausage and tomato and garlic bread oh gosh I can sooo eat that right now, we then went upstairs and just caught up with what was goin' on in our lives, guys, church, etc. I don't know what time I knocked out I know it was well over 2 a.m. cause Saane knocked out on me and I was camping on FB via PHONE the wonders of technology.
Steelers Vs. Hayward
Saturday morning was pretty hectic by far the most productive saturday overall...early morning at about 10 a.m. Saane had asked if I would like to go with her to her YW camp cooking training it was raining and cold, seriously felt like we were out camping, oh how I miss the YW's and just being around the leaders. I can tell you Dutch oven cooking, box oven cooking, and open pit cooking made me just want to cook outdoors...the food was unbelievably good no lie wish I took a picture of it so you can see I have quite a few recipies I want to try with the nieces when I watch them soon. Anyways after that about 1:30 p.m. we headed to the steelers rugby field to watch the game oh lawdy lawd was that a beautiful site ok I'll just stop there rugby is such a rough sport but at the same time it's kinda hott LOL, steelers done killed the Hayward team I only took one pic from afar then I put my phone in my pocket cause of the rain. We met up with Moti Lavaki it's been awhile since I've seen him, he's lookin' really good. We then decided that we were going to have a baking session later on that night and Saane had invited him along with John & Layne. We thought we had the schedule down go home rest for a few hours then go and shop for the ingredients..NOT..it was like this we went home sat down and then decided hey lets just get the ingredients so we can come home and sleep for 3 hours LOL, WRONG again when we got to walmart we went strait to the makeup isle what a wrong move when you get me down that isle and where the dye is good luck to getting me out of that isle LMBO I ended up buying hair dye, eyeshadow, makeup remover etc. Anyways we finally got out of the store and it was 5:30 P.m. the guys and sara was going to come over at 7. So we decide we'll just knockout and then get up and prep for the baking wrong once again we decided lets dye our hair then prep that alone was almost an hour. So by the time the guys came over I was frickin' worn the heck out but at the same time, loved it cause one I was with sister saane and mi second familia and 2 meeting new people is ALWAYS a PLUS.

John making sure the Sweetheart cookies has the heart LOL
Hmmm...thinkin' do we even dare attempt LOL

Anyways my post is getting a bit long we started the baking made the choc chip cookies and when Layne & John, Moti, got in you best believe we put them to work. Layne came in and went strait to rolling the dough, John on the other hand was being a critique hoi only him can tell Layne he's doing it wrong so what did we do??? told John and & Moti they were gonna have to make the sweetheart cookies, and saane made the sugar cookies she did an awesome job and so did the guys minus a few minor problems but they did pull it off and those sweetheart cookies were a hit.. after baking the cookies Saane had mentioned we were gonna go to Denny's to eat cause last we ate was at the dutch oven cooking, and you best believe we was hungry...saane made it clear that reguardless what everyone else wanted to do she was gonna go and eat with or without us, so we all ended up going well not all it was Saane, Moti, & I in our ride and John & Layne in the other...we got to talking and whatnot eating and John tried to be a cool guy and not eat uhhh yeah buddy you with the wrong crowd when you do that lol, Moti ended up halfing his burger with him I gave him some of my fries and then I don't know what else we made him EAT LOL...over all the food was good and the company was great I think we didn't get home till the AM lol Happy Valley had totally converted me to visit me more often;) cause sunday there was some delicious eye candy to my eyes shut tha hahahaha...huh saane so hook it up LMBO. And coming to a loving house that counts me as one of there daughters and grand daughters is a major plus I love the General and G-pa there the best and of course can't forget Auntie Kehau & Uncle Dave & last but not least Danny, Vika, Malik for feeding us sunday night with yummy chicken, rice, salad, and my favor carrot cake. Saane thank you ever sooo much for makin' this weekend memorable Love your guts sis and see yah in a few weeks ;)!!

Weigh ins...

Sinai, Ailini, Ruby
So many DUCKS...

April 30, 2010

So I get a phone call this morning from madre asking are you still babysitting the "Triplets"?. I then reply well Sinai said she can take over and watch the girls, so I can head out to happy valley for the weekend getaway earlier instead of after midnight. Mom then replies ok that sounds good so are you going to come home from work and drop off the girls at Sinai's? No mom Sinai will come and pick me up so we can go to the Biggest Loser weigh in...oh ok then have fun in provo and be safe, end of conversation. Well Sinai came on over to pick me and the diva's up, to head on over to the 24 hour fitness in SL for the weigh in, I know another challenge for me especially after taking 2nd in the first competition I joined a guy taking the FIRST place spot, but hey it gave me the extra PUSH and motivation so I figured hey why not join this one to...I loved the fact that this competition is all ladies :). Well we got there and there wasn't that many there but then they all started coming in slowly the total that ended up coming in to weigh in was 15 friday night...more weighed in saturday night bringing the FINAL total to $950 would that be a motivation for you?? cause it sure is for me, so here's to getting healthy and hopefully keeping off the weight.

After weigh ins Sinai asked the girls if they were hungry and sure enough they all yelled out YESSSSS LOL, malo ia cause auntie Morena was hungry to, Sinai treated us to Mo Bettah Steaks frick talk bout YUMMMY totally hit the spot I told Sinai its ok cause we really start Monday well I did anyways and me spending time in Happy Valley with baking and whatnot I gotta take advantage of that before being strict for this competition. So I got the list of weigh ins and guess who's the HEAVIEST...uhhh you guessed it right I am but hey I've been heavy all my life so that doesn't surprise me it's bout time to make that change...hope I can get out of the range I'm in right now being a THICK CHICK is really hard but I ain't gonna give up...I'm gonna GIVE IT MY ALL...the ladies in the competition will give me a good run seriously they're all serious so time to get my GAME FACE ON wish me luck!!
