Happy Anniversary! and an awesome stache.

On Monday we celebrated our 7th Anniversary! So blessed!! Crazy how time flies! I guess I'm realizing that more and more. Time doesn't move as slow as it did say in college, high school, or elementary school. Especially elementary school - that felt like two life times! ha! Trying to enjoy my time and life as much as I can, while I can - because I don't want to look back saying I wish I did more or spent more time with family and friends.

So we are super practical with our gifts - most of the time. For instances, my vacuum died 2 days before Valentines - and that's what I wanted. :) Poor Marcos got flak from a ton of people, but I reassured them that it was actually what I wanted. 1st anniversary we got a HP black and white laser printer. He is still here with us today. :) Mr. HP LaserJet 1022. etc. etc. So for this year, we got a little Weber BBQ. Smokey Joe. Keeping a super low profile on our patio. So BBQ and our special dinner place and call it two thumbs up. Oh, and a Crayola white board. Love it! :)

However, the thing that truly made our day was 1) Marcos had the day off! and 2) Johnny and his new mustache. HAHA HUH-LLLARRRIIIOUS.

That's all for now.

OH, and I hit a homerun tonight!! :) Doesn't matter what league, division, or type of softball... it still feels good. :)

Just the facts, ma'am.

Last Day of School and 2nd Recital

Today is the last day of Pre-K for Johnny! We are so amazed at how quickly he has grown up! 
He just completed his first year at Pacific Conservatory with his 2nd recital! We're so proud of him! 

Here's to summer and many more goofy adventures!

Gardening Season is back!

Wow, sorry for such a long gap in postings! Last post was in October about how the growing season was ending...

Blogging is back. Much goes on hiatus during softball season. For those who don't know, I'm an assistant coach for Calvary Chapel's varsity softball team in Santa Ana. And I absolutely love it! We had a fantastic season this year. Continuing our Orange Coast League Undefeated streak to 4 years! The girls are awesome. We are losing 3 seniors this year. :-( We are super proud of them and look forward to seeing what God has for their lives as they continue on with college. :-) If you haven't checked us out yet we are on Facebook, Twitter, and our own website. ALSO! If you buy fireworks for 4th of July, come by our stand at Harbor and MacArthur in Santa Ana. We are doing our first softball firework stand as a fundraiser! Super excited for it. It'll be here before I know it!

 So now that softball is over, I have begun my annual post-softball season apartment cleaning, and blog post! ha! It seems to go that way each year.

On to gardening!! :-D I planted a handful of seeds in my in-laws garden again in May. Hoping to go back to their place and see how my little plants are doing. I have a little Garden Diary that I write down what I planted and when. I try to put in little updates on what was worked/grew or not, often writing suggestions down for next time, or just some random thoughts that I might have. However, one of those most recurring thoughts is - I want a bird. :-) Ha!

Well, that's all for now until more photos are taken of the patio garden.

Ciao Bella,
