What's the latest and greatest?

We've been up to a few fun things over the past month that we thought were noteworthy enough to blog about. A couple weeks ago, we saw Jim Gaffigan, the comedian, do a stand up routine at the Majestic Theatre in Dowtown Dallas. He was incredible!!! Here's a YouTube video of one of his routines (not recorded by us):

Pretty funny stuff huh? Well it was sooooooooo much better in person.

A couple of days ago Sarah got some free tickets to the Dallas Stars hockey game. It was a lot of fun and even went to a shootout, but Dallas lost, so oh well.

For halloween Sarah and I went to a party at her co-worker Sarah's house. We had a pretty clever costume combination of ...

That's right! You hungry for breakfast now? Because I am! Bacon and eggs baby. I chose bacon specifically because of the Jim Gaffigan video above. Well, that's the latest and greatest. Get back to you soon!

Summer Update

It has been quite a while since I have posted and I wanted to give a brief summer update on what we have been doing. Mainly Gerret and I are working hard at both of our jobs and enjoying what we do. We have finally gotten to explore a bit in the Dallas area and see what this huge city has to offer. So far we have gotten to check out the Fort worth Zoo, which was way fun. The animals were pretty lazy though. We didn't see a whole lot of activity, but it was cool to be somewhat up close with some of the worlds most dangerous animals. We were also able to go canoeing down the Brazos River with some friends. The river is about two hours from where we live. This was something I haven't experienced yet and it was so cool! We did an eight mile canoe ride down the river that took about three hours and enjoyed the scenery around us. There were plenty of trees and random cows close by. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We would definitely do it again.

Another big move!

No we are not moving again. Yeah right. We have had our share of moving for a while now. This post is just out of order. So while we were going out to California for my brother's graduation we decided it was the right time to move all our stuff out here finally. It's great to have our own belongings again. It felt like Christmas as we got to unpack our stuff. We love our place. It's awesome.

During our trip to Cali we got to catch up with some friends, go to the beach, eat at our favorite restaurant (Chins) and spend time with Gerret's family. It was a really fast trip, but great! On the way back to Dallas we got to stop in Phoenix for a few days and visit with Gerret's Sister Marcie and their new baby Ella and see some friends from New York. Here are some pictures. hope you enjoy.

This Time It's Permanent

I just finished the interview process for People Report a few days ago and am pleased to announce that I am the 13th member of the People Report team. There were over 600 applicants for the postion, but they liked me, so I'm not going to complain. Sarah and I are very excited for this next step in our lives.

For a little background on the company, they are a company that has been around for a little over ten years and do the human capital analysis for food service companies, especially restaurant and fast food chains. They develop a quarterly report for each company to help them find ways to keep or hire the best employees and focuses on compensation and other monetary benefits. These things help companies see positive or negative trends so that they can keep doing what they are doing, or make necessary changes that will help the business grow. I am happy to be a part of the team.

We're On Our Own!!!

Sarah and I are now officially not mooching any more off of our parents. With the combination of Sarah's massage jobs and my PWC job, we saved up and moved all of our stuff from California to Texas. We are now in Plano at a very new complex and we are happy with the size and price. I've taken some pictures so that you can share in the glory.

4 Gorgueiros and a Montgomery

Apparently my husband has a new day job that he didn't tell me about, but after watching his work, I don't mind too much. It is kind of strange to see my brothers like this though. I hope you all enjoy this video my sister-in-law, Amy made.

Gerret and I have also been taking some dance lessons at the Collin County Community College. It has been lots of fun and we made a video of our latest routine. Hope you like it. We've managed to shave off a few inches along the way too.

First Tornado Warning......

Tuesday around nine thirty at night we were very focused on the evening news. Dallas was having a tornado yeah you heard me tornado warning I couldn't believe my ears either. I thought that they started in the spring. Well I guess they can come in the winter also. If the weather is right. So Gerret was trying to go to sleep because he of course had to get up before the butt crack of dawn. While in the process of going to bed we all heard the sirens go off. It was scary but Hilarius at the same time because Gerret bolted to the linen closet and some how got himself tucked into it for safe keeping. I had to get a picture of this. He looks very safe in that small space. No tornado touched down in Dallas but it did on the border of Oklahoma and fifteen people were killed by it. I have never in life heard rain come down so hard before and the wind was blowing so hard. By that point I was picturing myself back in California by the beach on a warm day. Nothing catastrophic happened but it was somewhat scary for us California's who have never been though that before. When have been though crazy bad snow storms in New York and fires in Cali but, first time for the Tornado warning. They say Dallas really doesn't have to many of them but those fifteen minutes while it was going one was intense. Then get this the next day 65 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Talk about sporadic weather.

Finally getting it together

Well I made it here alive to Dallas right before Christmas. let me tell you that trip is not to be repeated. look at the picture's below of what my car looked like with my stuff packed and my brother and his family's, oh yeah don't forget the Christmas presents too Jammed into any crevice or hole. We drove straight threw for a whopping 26 hours. Daren should win a prize for that drive. I will admit he did most of it. I know your thinking how dumb are they to drive straight threw well now I see we are pretty dumb for that one, but we had a deadline and needed to be here before Christmas and we were somewhat cutting it close. Christmas was really nice we spent most of the time at Eric and Amy playing games hang out and watching movies it was really nice to relax and play with Hannah and Austin they are getting so dang big. Amy thanks for having us all there It was really fun Christmas! I know you put a lot of work into everything especially the food witch was great. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year!
So now we are looking for a place to live . There are almost to many apartments to choose form here so we want to find the right deal and location. Gerret is working his butt off poor guy is pulling about 12 to 14 hour shift he's the walking zombie right now. I took a job back a Massage Envy until something better comes along. Iam still interviewing at various places here. chiropractors offices and other spa's. We really miss California, but we both feel good about the move everything has fallen into place the way we wanted them to seven months ago. It feels great to finally have that happen. The weather here is somewhat sporadic today its going to be 80 degrees. Some day's it feels like California. That's the latest with us right now we miss all our family and friends back where our hearts truly call home, But we are looking forward to experience Dallas for a while.
