Prayers Please

Wednesday night, a little passed 12am, my cousins Tennille & Leonor were in a car accident and are still recovering from the injuries at Saint Josephs Hospital. I am asking for prayers, that they have a speedy recovery, that no more injuries arise, no more complications and especially for Leonor who is still in ICU today. 

Thank you for your prayers in advance. In God we trust!

2,920 days of love!

In June of 2004, Lawrence and I officially became boyfriend and girlfriend! I can't believe it's been eight years, but I always knew he was the one. I remember telling my friends that and they'd ask but how do you know? I'd always say, "It just feels different." It sounds so cliche but for those of you that have experienced it, you know what feeling I'm talking about. 

Lawrence is one of my greatest blessing, he totally gets me and let's me be me! The busy me, the crafty me, the messy me, the over-obsessed-with-eiffel-towers me! LOL! 

In turn I let him be HIM! The ninja turtle lovin, play-station playing, the overachiever and most of all Dr.Pepper with Chocolate Chip cookie snacker he is!

Recently I was asked by a Bride to be if I had any advice for her....where do I start? I gave her the best advice I got:
The honeymoon only end when you allow it to!

SD Part Three

1. On day three of our trip we met up with my brother and his
friends who were also in SD for the weekend.

2. Driving over the Coronado Bridge.

3. We also stayed at The Hacienda Best Western in Old Town. It wasn't our first stay there, before we even started dating he had gone on vacation with his cousins and my family had also joined and stayed at this hotel. It was fun memories for us, since he claims I was already in love with him by that time. LOL.

4.  One of my good friends who lives in California told me about a awesome place to eat called, Filippi's Pizza Grotto. When we went into the resturant you actually have to stand in line and the line is in the market area. Well the line was all the way outside so we figured it must be good if they are willing to stand in line for 25 mins. to be seated. Boy was it worth the wait...we LOVED the food!


(We had dinner guests)

5. Last day of vacation we walked all of Old Town.
Went to all the shops & read all the historical info we could.

 (I love this tree, it's huge!)

6. Before heading home we stopped at Anthony's Grotto for lunch and said goodbye to San Diego!

7. Well not before making a quick stop at my favorite gelato spot, Chocolat.

That was our summer vacation/anniversary getaway...and we'll gladly do it all over again next year!

SD Part Two

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend. I had a busy one and now it's only going to be busier! My good friends Luisana and Waldo are tying the knot in two weeks and I'm her hairstylist! My lovely friend Lynette has asked me to be her wedding coordinator for her March wedding. Yay, there's so many fun projects ahead. If only I could make a career out of this...

Here is part two of our getaway:
1. Lunch at Anthony's Grotto
2. The view from Anthony's is so nice.
3. We also stopped at Belmont Amusement Park and Mission beach.
4. Our last stop of the day was at Extraordinary Desserts,
 if you've read my blog before you know we highly recommend this place. 
We waited a good 30 mins to be seated but it's worth the wait. 

Believe it or not, part 3 coming next! lol.
