Happy Anniversary To Us!!

Yesterday was our anniversary!  We have been together for 7 years and married for 4.  I thought that since I have not done a post on how "we" came about this would be the perfect time to do so.  Tonio and I met in 7th grade in our AVID class.  AVID was a college prep class that you could take throughout junior high and high school.  So every year we had at least one class together until we graduated.  All through junior high and high school we were just friends but I loved hanging out with him.  He always made me laugh and he would write me all kinds of silly notes and draw crazy pictures.  He was one of my most favorite people to be around.  We didn't start dating until after we graduated high school when one day he told me that he "liked" me.  Hahahah!  After that our life together began!  

We had our beautiful Autumn Layce on January 21, 2006 and she made our lives perfect!

On May 24, 2008 we got married!  Despite being almost 8 months pregnant with Deegan everything was perfect and I finally got to marry my best friend!  

On August 6, 2008 we got to welcome our sweet baby boy Deegan Mathias!

We have already made so many great memories I can't wait to see what our future brings us!  I am so lucky to be able to share this journey with my best friend, a man who makes me the most happiest girl in the world!

So I guess an update is in order since I am a pretty terrible blogger.  Things have been pretty busy as always around here.  Seems like there is never any time to sit and do absolutely nothing.  I just want to be LAZY!

There has been some exciting news though!  We have finally hit the 20 weeks mark of this pregnancy and when I say we I mean ME hahahaha!  Last Wednesday we found out that we are going to be having another BOY!  It took awhile for us to wrap our minds around this since we had mentally prepared ourselves for another girl.  I think we thought it was going to be a girl because Autumn wanted a baby sister so badly!  When we told her it was a boy she was so angry!  I even got a video of her stomping her feet and throwing a fit!  It was so sad and hilarious at the same time!  Now she has gotten used to the idea of her having two brothers and she has seemed to have forgotten all about wanting a sister.  We are so excited to finally know what we are having because now it seems like it is for real even though the kicks that I have been feeling have been very real.  Now we can start planning, rearrange the room and actually go buy some of the things that we are going to need.  I have been going crazy and buying all sorts of cute little fabrics for our new little mister!  I would really love to find a fabric that I like so that I could make crib set and I am being pretty picky with things since I know this will be our last baby.  Anyways here are some pictures that make me smile!

IE Food Truck Festival

Today we went to the Food Truck Festival at the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario!!  I have been waiting for this day for a few months!  I have never been to one of these and I have to say that I enjoyed every minute of it!  Tonio and I went with my brother and sister and we had so much fun together!!  When we first got there we walked through them all to get an idea of what we wanted to try.  There were about 50 different trucks and all of them looked interesting.  Tonio wanted to try the Grilled Cheese truck but 
when we got there the line was huge!!  So we said forget that!!

So next we went and tried the eggroll truck and it was pretty good but nothing spectacular.

Then we went to the Rolling Sushi Van which was freaking awesome!! I got a shrimp tempura hand roll and I was in LOVE!!

Next we waited in a line that was just as long as the grilled cheese one so that Tonio could get some bacon deliciousness from Baconnation.  My stomach is still not quite ready for bacon so I only tried a taste of his stuff.  He ordered a bacon and cheese sandwich and a bacon and cheese crisp.  Basically it was fried cheese and bacon! GAH!

After the bacon madness we went back to the sushi truck and got another hand roll because it was so good!! While we were waiting in line for sushi Tonio and my brother went and got in the Chunk & Chip sandwich line which was a cookie ice cream sandwich and it was soooo good!  I ordered and Minteroni which was a two brownies with mint ice cream in the middle and Tonio got a Macadamia and Vanilla ice cream sandwich.

We really enjoyed walking around and looking at all of the different creations that the trucks had to offer.  Just hanging out with my family was tons of fun for me!  I would definitely go again and I look forward to the next one!
