Where has the time flown!?

It's been already a year since Mario and I got married.

It's been quite a year- it started off really bumpy, then things cooled down, we planned to have baby #2, got pregnant REALLY fast, Gaby turned 4 and here I am 6 months pregnant with Mr. A (WOW) and more in love with my macho than I was yesterday. I really can't imagine my life without Mario, he really completes me and understands my crazy ways. We support each other and are so blessed with 1 1/2 amazing kids!

We've been together since we were both 14. We were in a Miami Chatroom on AOL, that day I gave him my number and my first thought was "WOW this guy is NOT 14" he had a manly sexy voice. Our relationship was based only on phone calls, until a whole year later when I met him in Tropical Park. His first words to me were "Wow, you have a shinny forehead". I guess that's when I knew he was "the one". Instead of having me at 'hello' he had me at 'shinny forehead'. Mario isn't a romantic kind of guy at all- so the little things he does even doing the dishes or making the bed are just "it" for me.

We got married at Perricone's in Downtown Miami and this is where we had dinner Saturday night. I got all pretty for him putting make-up, doing my hair and looking as hot as I could! We left Gaby with his mom, sister and nephew while we had a quite ride to downtown. We arrived to Perricone's and were sat in the same corner we did at our wedding. We even order the same platter and had Coconut Flan. It was so romantic just being alone and reliving the day- I looked around the room and remembered where all the guests sat and just soaked it all in again.

Here are a couple of pictures of us on Saturday night:

On our way to Perricone's (I love it when he smiles)

In the same corner where we sat at our wedding ;)

On Monday- it was our real Anniversary and to my surprise as I open the door to our house there is Mario waiting for us! It was the best! Gaby doesn't see him during the week- only in the morning when Mario gets her ready for school. She was soo happy and ran to him like a bullet! I walked into our room and literally FROZE! He had bought the most beautiful arrangement of red roses and purple flowers, a balloon and hand written note. It was so special I started balling in a nano second! I read the card and cried more...the card read "1 down...and forever to go" (even now as I type this I get gitty inside and smile :)







Mario is my hot fudge on my vanilla ice cream! <3

Halloween!!!

Happy (belated) Halloween!

This year was a great year to grab some goodies for Mr. A, Gaby and myself ;) The weather was fabulous, the day was great and the company was fantastic! We bought Gaby's costume in the beginning of October. I didn't want to wait too long and buy some stupid costume. So we planned ahead and went to Party City. Gaby, to my surprise, didn't want to be a Disney Princess. We were left with 2 options: 1- Cheerleader or 2- a Pirate (ARRRHHHH) lol. Last year she was a UM Cheerleader, so she picked the Buckaneer! Oh how cute did she look! Here are come pictures of the day:

Getting Ready



ALL READY!! (please check out the pose of DIVA Gaby!)



To school we must go!



At night we went to Grandma's house for some more fun (as if she didn't have enough sugar at school!) Here she is with her cousin Daniel (who is dress as a boxer with a black eye!)



We all decided to go to a local park and enjoy free pizza, cotton candy, and soda! Here is Gaby with some random little boy, he was the male version of the Pirate:



And even after 45 minutes of Trick or Treating and a full day of events she is still SMILING for the camera!



As a bonus- here is a video of Gaby singing a Halloween song she learned in school. The morning of Halloween she sang this song the ENTIRE way from our house to her school. Enjoy!
