A little bit of catching up

Today was an awesome day! The weather at the beach was amazing and... Mike and I went and got IPads! Yay! I'm typing on it as we speak!! :) But the reason I wanted to write this blog is because lately Mike and I have really been noticing that sometimes the life you plan or expect to have, does not always turn out the way we might think it will. We have delt with some hard ships this last year, we lost our first baby and planned a cruise, both of which had an unexpected outcome that we did not expect. However, more then ever, these days we have been really able to see Heavenly Fathers plan for us! Sometimes our plan and his plan could be slightly different, or the plan that we think we're going to have. As I mentioned in my previous post, we moved to vista and I got a Job at Mission Federal Credit Union. I'm so grateful to be down here so close to the beach and was hired at such a great company! Moral of the story, be grateful for what you have and the blessings that you receive, and everything else will fall into place! Both mike and I are so excited about this time in our lives and can't wait to see what our future holds.

Can you say... Cruise!!

Well, Mike got his bachelors degree! (whoohoo) so we decided to celebrate and go on a cruise... We went to St. Thomas, St. Martin and The Bahamas!! Here, is a little snap shot of our adventure!

Our very first blog

Where do I start... Well Mike and I met in 2006, its actually a pretty funny story. My computer had been acting up and my mom ( who works in IT) broke her arm and wasn't able to look at it for me, so she said she would have a guy from her work come over and fix it. Backing up a little bit more... The previous weekend my mom through a baby shower for a girl that she worked with. At the shower, my mom's boss came up to me and asked if I was single and said that there is a very handsome boy that they all work with... I was very interested :) but my mom said she would not have any part in it. So, going back to my mom having a "guy" from her work come fix my computer. I was assuming it was going to be her co-worker Stephan, So i didn't mind to get ready, in fact I had just came home from the gym. All smelly and stinky I greet this (very handsome, I may add) guy at the door. My mom walked him up stairs and to my room where he starting looking at my computer. My mom said " ohhh, my arm hurts, im going to lay down" and left! I know!! So, it was just Mike and make a long story short he ended up staying until 10:30 that night and had to come back the following night with my brand new whipped computer! Thank goodness :)  He asked if I wanted to come to church with him and the rest is history.

     On november 7th 2008 I was working and Mike asked if I could get off work early because we were going somewhere.. I had clients until seven, but after that I left in a jiffy! I got home and we were off, we got on the 15 north.. I thought to myself " nothing is on the 15 north" but I just went with it. 3 hours later, in the middle of no where I finally asked where we were going but Mike wouldn't budge. Well, we made it to Las Vegas around 1am. The next day we really did Vegas, we went to every hotel and walked everywhere! my feet were killing me, I didn't know we were going to be doing so much walking and wore wedges :) At the end of the day.. Mike took me up to the top of the Stratosphere and proposed! It was such an amazing moment! 
    On July 18th, 2009 We were gathered by all our friends and family who witnessed our marriage! I can not believe that was almost 3 years ago! 

     Now, that we are up to date.. We live in Vista Ca.. 7 miles from the beach. We absolutely love it here. Mike works as a Network Security specialist  and I JUST got hired as a member service representative.Mike is so close to achieving his bachelors degree and I am in school to be a nutritionist.  We are loving life, and loving each other. I am so grateful that the Lord has blessed us with such an awesome marriage! We can't wait to see what the future holds ;)
