Ann & I devoured some suman together before Orlando came over. Orlando traded his shotguns for a smaller dirtbike. I came back from 24hour Fitness…had to pick up my 7-day pass. Chatted a bit about work, trainers and him teaching me how to ride the bike. Kinda psyched!

After work, we both met at my house. We headed to our premarital counseling at LLUC, room 207. Pastor Thompsen was talking specifically about gender roles, and the importance of establishing future roles now.
Afterwards, we ate at Phoenicia’s. I had some hummus, pita bread and lentil soup. Orlando had a chicken shwarma combo. Good stuff. We had a strained conversation/argument about our discussion that morning. The owner of Phoenicia knows us pretty well, and before we left, told us to “Keep loving one another – no matter what. That’s what matters.”
Kept talking in the truck on the way to my house, and kept it up until about 11:30pm. I stayed at my house that night. He went home. Mood was still a bit strained, but resolved.
Attire: I wore my see-through black floral peasant top, with my AGs and vintage brown boots. Orlando wore a green trippy-themed shirt and some jeans with white kicks.

We went to Re:Live. New 5 week series by Pastor Tim Gillespie about relationships. Today’s sermon was great – emphasizing honesty and integrity in relationships. Will definitely be going to the next 4 sermons.
After church, we ate at Las Brasas in Redlands. We both had machaca con huevos with chips & salsa. I had to go get my hair roots done at Palazzo and he went to Chaparral to get some parts for his Enduro.
At around 3:30ish, we met up again, and went to his house, where we met up with Anthony. We stopped at a carneceria in Beaumont, before heading out to Mike Smith’s house in Hemet, where we met up with Aaron, Jessica, Mike, Dustin and Mike’s girl Monica.
Had a great time barbecuing, and chatting it up. Watched the Pacquiao vs Hatton fight (where Pacquiao kicked Hatton’s ass SO HARD). Played some dominos. Good times and good eats.

Spent the night at Orlando’s last night. He woke up early to go riding in Big Bear with Aaron Peydon. I met up with Gayle at 1:00ish for our Charity Spa Day at Palazzo – 3 hours worth of pampering: facials, blow-out, make-up application, free product, snacks and champagne – it was wonderful! Later, went back to the house where Orlando, Anthony and I watched a few episodes of Weeds Season 3. After, went to Del Taco. And headed to Krikorian to meet up with Gayle and Garrett to watch Xmen Origins: Wolverine. Really AWESOME movie. Hottest guys ever.
