Three Awesome Years!

This past Wednesday on St.Patricks day was our three Anniversary! We decided since I don't get Saturdays off we would both take the actual day off. It was SO nice to spend time together. We went to the Dallas World Aquarium. It was beautiful they did a great job with the facility, they are a little pricey since its somewhat small but still a fun thing to do in Dallas. We got to see all kinds of fish and birds and all sorts of other animals. We went to dinner at PF Changs which was SO yummy. All and all it was a great day and the newest addition to the Gorgueiro family was born Che Daniel Gorgueiro on our anniversary that is pretty Awesome!!! Congrats to Danny and Veronica and Che!

I am so thankful to my loving husband and the man that he is to me. I am so incredibly blessed to be able to share my whole life with him and SO much more. He inspires me to be a better person and is always there for me when things get rough and challenging. I love you Gerret thank you for being my best friend and everything else that I couldn't possibly describe. You are truly the most Amazing part of my life.

Here a few pictures of the Aquarium:

This was the Sloth that didn't want to be bothered. Makes you want to watch Ice Age.
Can you find Nemo in this picture? We did.

A few months back I took a trip out to Lafayette Indiana to see my best friend Caiti from High school before she went on her mission to Anchorage Alaska. We hadn't seen each other in over 7 years We always kept in touch, but have lived in other areas of the country after we graduated. It was great to see here and her family again. We had some much needed girl time, got to have a a few bonfires go to lake Michigan and the most adorable town St.Joseph off of the great lakes. see downtown Indianapolis, visit an art museum and do a little shopping. Seeing lake Michigan was like being at the beach I loved it. We also had to take a picture with the corn I have never seen so many corn fields in my life, but that is mainly what they grow in Indiana. I had never been to the great lakes before and that was awesome they are enormous to see. Here a few pictures of the view. I would love to defiantly go back and visit it was so much fun!

It's been way to long

Wow I can't believe its been over three months since I blogged last. Work has taken over our lives and we are slaves to our jobs, but we love them and things are going great for us in the big D. We love our apartment, our ward and the family around us and the new friends we have made. We have officially lived in Texas a year now. Its gown on us quite a bit, I will admit its not as easy on the eyes as California is but the people are great and there is plenty to do around here. Although we don't have time to do much but look forward to trying out a bunch of things we are interested in. like Visiting San Antonio , Austin, the Aquarium, South Padre Island, the Stock yards and many, many more.
Since I blogged last Christmas has come and gone valentines day, My birthday and our three year anniversary is approaching fast! all these past holidays except the last one were awesome. We had Gerrets parents out here with us for Christmas it was great to see them and spend time together. Valentines day was relaxing. we had a steak diner and watched The Time Traveler wife while enjoying some yummy chocolate covered strawberries! All and all these last few months have been great! I have been a slacker about taking pictures so unfortunately I don't have any pictures to post maybe next time though.
Work has kept our schedule very full. Gerrets job is amazing and he feels SO blessed that he works for such a great business. He has been able to take on a incredible amount of responsibilities in addition to what he already does. So job security is what it sounds like to me. He is really enjoying all the work he does and the cool things he is learning along the way. My job at the spa is great we are a growing spa with lots of goals and I am happy to be apart of SO many events that we host and take care of in the Mckinney community. Spring and summer are some of the busiest times through out the year in this industry. I am looking forward to staying busy and meeting new people. We both are so grateful for our jobs and the way things have worked out since we moved to Texas. Hopefully I don't take three months to post my next blog but we shall see how that goes.
