4/23 in LA

We flew into to LAX around 5 and picked up some In and Out burger with Bryan's friend Tan. This is a must every time Bryan goes to LA.

After that we picked up the tuxes and then hung out at Chris's place to watch the end of the Mav's game.

They live in this really cute apartment in Beverly Hills. We went up on the roof to look at the hills and the city lights. Unfortunately it was a little cloudy so I have no pics of the hills.





Then we went to our hotel in Beverly Hills. We decided to walk around and found this neat little hotel called Avalon. Inside there was this cute little swimming pool and couches.





We ordered some yummy wine and enjoyed the beginning of our trip. Bryan thinks he saw the secretary guy from Entourage there. If it wasn't him it looked exactly like him.

Proposed Mastectomy Law Change

(written by a surgeon);

I'll never forget the look in my patients eyes when I had to tell them they had to go home with the drains, new exercises and no breast. I remember begging the doctors to keep these women in the hospital longer, only to hear that they would, but their hands were tied by the insurance companies.

So there I sat with my patient giving them the instructions they needed to take care of themselves, knowing full well they didn't grasp half of what I was saying, because the glazed, hopeless, frightened look spoke louder than the quiet 'Thank you' they muttered.

A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to remove cancerous breast cells/tissue. If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

This Mastectomy Bill is in Congress now. It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important. Please take the time and do it really quick! The Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill is important legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the 'drive-through mastectomy' where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support.. Last year over half the House signed on. PLEASE! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You need not give more than your name and zip code number..

Lifetime Petition


Proof that this is real

This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends.

Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday was Mom and Dad's 31st anniversary! They are both beautiful people and I love them so much! Mom is the sweetest thing you will ever meet and Dad is an amazing father. God knew what he was doing when he brought them together.

They both have so much patience and love for us! Dad is the hardest working person I know and he bends over backwards for our family. Mom is precious and has loved us unconditionally. I aspire to be something like them as Bryan and I grow together. They are such an example to us.

Happy 31st Mom and Dad!



P.S.- This Saturday (at the Buffett concert) will Bryan and my anniversary of meeting:) It's almost like a half anniversary similiar to a half birthday.

Opening Weekend

This weekend is opening weekend for Lonestar Park. I will be out there Saturday with Bryan and his family if anyone wants to join. It's only $5 before 5 pm to get in. I love watching the horses and maybe even win a few races!

In addition to that we get to see the Beach Boys play that night at 6:30. They remind me of my dad. He always used to listen to them when we were little.

My Bapa used to take us to the horse races when we were younger, which didn't sit to well with Nana and Mom. One time he said, I'm taking the kids to A&W for lunch. Next thing I know Steph, Brad, me and Johnny are throwing a dollar down on a horse. The horse won and we all had a blast. Mom and Nana were waiting at home for us to return so that wasn't so fun for Bapa. I thought it was cool to take your grandkids gambling? Is it not? I thought we were under the trust tree?

Let me know if any of you guys want to meet up on Saturday. It will be 71 and sunny, a great day to be at the races and an outdoor concert!

Check out this guy

This is so funny, the drunk guy on a motorized barstool! Wow, dumb and innovative at the same time.

Notes from the officer:

"I asked him what happened, Mr. Wygle stated, 'I wrecked my bar stool.'"

"I asked Mr. Wygle how much alcohol he had to drink, he said, 'a lot.'"

"I asked if the bar stool even ran and said, 'yes, it will go around 38 miles per hour.'"

Yikes! That is pretty bizarre that he can go that fast and not wipe out every time! I guess that cool rollerblade wheel on the back is so he won't fall backwards?
