Well apparently they are trying to bring this show back on the air. Yes, yes I know the questions you have are if ICE, VIPER, or BLADE are coming back too? Nope, they have new gladiators like SIREN, WOLF, and FURY.
Tonight we went to a shooting of this show. I thought it would be completely dumb and so staged like every other show out there, but I had the best time. This show is definitely not staged. We watched the ring challenge with Girls. Girls are so mean. They were slapping, and kicking each other in the face. The Gladiator would get so mad if they didn't win. It was so funny to watch. What this show does, for example, is they film four rounds of the ring challenge so they will have that challenge for four different episodes. Then they take down the set and make a new one for a new challenge, and then film four more challengers. I learned that in the film industry there is a lot of time wasted, and just sitting around. Each take took a good 5 minutes, but all the time in between took like 20 minutes.
Also the host was the one and only: Hulk Hogan
He was awesome to watch. He messed up on every take he did. Overall, it was a very fun and interesting night. Thanks Carrie for inviting us. Look in the audience of this show when it airs, Garrett and I may be in there cheering!

Well another Thanksgiving has past by. This year was so fun. All the siblings came home to Arizona to celebrate. For Garrett & I, our Thanksgiving adventures started with a nice extended drive through LA. It took us 9 hours to make a 6 1/2 hour drive. Kill me now. Then on Thanksgiving day a bunch of us did the THANKSGIVING TURKEY TROT. After a long run we then ate two Thanksgiving dinners. It was such a fun weekend of seeing all our family and being able to spend time with one another. The highlight for the guys was the playing XBOX 360, band (I don't know the proper name for this game). My mom got this game for us. There were drums, a guitar, and a microphone to sing with. It was really fun. The boys really got in the 80's rock mode by rolling up their pants, and taking their shirts off.
Well, on Friday all the girls went shopping, of course. Then that night Garrett flew to San Jose to be at Tom Swapp's wedding. Congrats Tom and Ashley. Overall this Thanksgiving was very memorable. It is such a nice time of year to sit back and really think about what were thankful for. I realized how truly grateful I am for Garrett for all the love he has for me. I really don't know what or where I would be without him. I love my family and am so grateful that we all were able to be together.

Garrett, being the amazing husband he is surprised me with Jimmy Eat World tickets. We went a couple of weeks ago to celebrate. He knew I would start trying to ruin any surprise he had if it were closer to our anniversary. He first had my boss send me home from work early. I thought I was in trouble or something. Then when I got home Garrett told me to get dressed up and we were out the door. He took me out to eat at the Cheese Cake Factory, and then headed over to the concert. The concert was awesome. It was kinda weird not to have a Mesa reunion though. Usually those concerts are made up of all Mountain View Toros! To finish off our Anniversary, on Monday Garrett came home with a bouquet of flowers, with 6 roses in it. I love Garrett so much. Being married has taught me a lot about myself. I see now how truly blessed mine and Garrett's life is being able to be sealed forever. I love you
The new Jimmy CD is good. My favorites are #3 & 9.
Oh within this slide show of pics I put our Halloween ones in. Enjoy!!

1.I got a different job. I left Princess Cruises and went back to my comfort zone, the gym.
2.Garrett and I have been enjoying the perks of the gym, and have a new hobby of indoor cycling. This is so hard. It kicks our butts every week.
3.We have been going to concerts.We love going into LA and going to random concerts. We just went to the Bravery concert with his sister Carrie and her husband Thann. Another concert we went to was the After Midnight Project. They were so good. I recommend everyone to look them up on YouTube. The drummer is in our ward, and they are really good.
4. Girls night out!! Some girls in my ward went down to Universal City walk. We went to a movie and rode a mechanical bull. I really have never done that before. It was a blast!
5. The most important event happened last weekend. All the family got together and celebrated Davis' baby blessing in Arizona. It was so much fun. It is always so fun getting together even if it was a short trip. (Thank you Kimber! I took these pics off your blog!)

On the fourth we went to Grandpa Richards' house to have a BBQ and swim with all the family. Here are some of our best moments.
What a fun fourth we had! It all started with some of Garrett's good friends coming into town and staying with us. Wes, Aulani and little baby Landon. We had fun visiting with them but came to the conclusion that we enjoyed not having a kid for right now! Garrett loved this babdy though, the baby had bright red hair so he felt a special bond with him.
