Training and Becka and Jenna's Annual Christmas Shopping Excursion

Minneapolis, MN ...aka MALL OF AMERICA!!

Dual trip. Part A Training and Part B SHOPPING!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Part A
Training for work in the negative degree weather!! BRRRRR
When I was scoping out the mall for the Shopping Excursion, I met a football player from the Vikings. He has four babies and a trophy wife.

Part B
Jenna and I have done our annual shopping excursions since elementary school. This was going to be the first year it might not work out... boo... so for my christmas present, Garvin gave the gift of the most amazing excursion ever! Jenna and I have dreamed about going to MoA for many many years, and our dream came true! We were even supplied special Vera Bradley bags to help us carry our loot, and it was already equipped with water and a protein snack!! Ready to go!

We had an amazing time at the mall. We saw Kellie Pickles (Pickler) perform,,, she's from American Idol (which I learned hehe). .. And of course we shopped but of course did not drop. (We are professional shoppers). We spent 24hours at the mall and were only there for two days! We rock!

Enjoy the pics,
Love, Becka (and Jenna and Garvin)

p.s. Added the movies to the Theater... enjoy Garvin (^_^)

When Becka's Away... the Stripers come out and play Winking

Wire strippers that is So Bill found an Xbox360 controller mod (link-age) and you can prolly figure out the rest of the story What was supposed to be a one day project to do three controllers, quickly became a weekend long project to do just one. Xbox360 controller + Bill sleeping over two nights + 2 trips to Sears + 2 trips to radio shack = A back-lit Xbox360 controller with semi-working buttons



Enjoy the very blurry pics

Emergence Day: Gears of War. We Came, We Saw, We Conquered!

Ok for those who don't know. Emergence Day was a 24-hour Gears of war tournament. To sum it all up... out of 55,000+ Bill ranked 108 and I was 237.

Quick Highlights:
+ Waking up @ 3:15am to start playing the tourney.
+ Bill took down an entire team of 4 by himself in "War Machine".
+ I took down an entire team of 4 with a chainsaw in "GridLock".
+ The reactions we got for taking them down single handedly.
+ Bill and I revived each other 10 times a piece in a match.
+ Super-Ultra-Spidey-Sense... Whenever Bill and I were forced on different teams, we would tell each other where our teammates were when we died, thus giving us easy kills cause we knew where they were hiding.
+ Running straight through the sniper tower in "GridLock" passing all the bad guys.
+ Bill not being able to head shot a downed guy @ point blank range and hearing people laugh @ him off my screen.




Enjoy the Super-Cool pics

Nguyen Reception

Round 2 of Martin's wedding. The whole weekend of the reception in Cleveland was another great time. Boy do those Vietnamese know how to eat, 10 course dinners that last 3 hours are awesome. Good times with friends both new and old, awesome food, a little dancing, and an all around fun experience that I think everyone enjoyed.  And if anyone asks, I am 3% Vietnamese.

Nguyen Wedding

Four days of fun in Kansas City. Martin took that crazy leap and got himself married. It was quite the experience being in a Vietnamese wedding, plenty of good people and good food. My vocabulary of about 30 words didn't really help all that much, but I still had a blast. Congrats to Martin and Quyen.
