Wow....It have been a while since the last time I wrote on here. Things have been crazy this past month. The semester was coming to an end which meant FINALS! We moved back into our house that we were renting out. Then the holidays are here and Ive been working alot more because we have a lot bigger house payment.
Zach has not been really busy with work. He says at this time of year there arent alot of jobs happening. During the holiday season he is going to work the weekends at the hotel he used to work at. That will give him some extra sepending money.
Well, I dont have any cool pics to put up here but Im sure after the holidays I will.

This Halloween was an eventful one for Zach and I. We went to 4 parties. We did have 5 to go to, but we had to cancel on one because there was no way we could have made them all. So, the week before Halloween we went to Joe and Cherise's party and won best costume. Then, the Firday before Halloween were going to go to 3 parties in one night but that is when we had to cancel on party. So, we just went to our cousin's house and then headed over to Kris and Sarah's house. On Halloween day we went over another couple friends of ours and there we won best costume as well. So, we had a good Halloween experience and loved to dress up in our costumes.

3rd Anniversary

Our anniversary this year fell on a Wed. so we went for our favorite food which is sushi! Afterwards we had marble slab ice cream. YUM!

I know, I know I am late putting these pics up. Anyways, here are some pics of mine and Zach's 3 year anniversary. I cannot believe how time flies. It seems like we were just celebrating our 1 year anniversary. There have been many ups and downs over the last 3 yrs. as all realationships have, but I am so glad to say that there are many more ups then there are downs. I have such a wonderful husband and Im so excited that we have an eternal marriage.

Zach planned the whole weekend out. He said that the reason why he did all these extravagant things was because I tell him that he is not romantic. Well, after this weekend I would say that he does have a romantic side.

So, I knew Zach was planning something and he told me just to pack my bags and that we would go on a spontaneous vacation after we ate dinner at "The Steakhouse" in the San Luis hotel in Galveston. So, after we ate he wanted to "show me around the hotel." So we go up to a room and when we walk in there are rose petals and chocolates on the bed. I was so suprised. I knew then that we would be staying at this hotel. Zach had booked that room for 2 nights. So, the next morning he told me that we needed to be at the hotel by 11am because he had another trick up his sleeves. So 11am comes around and there is a knock on the door so I opened it and there are 2 massage therapists. Zach had ordered an in-room couples massage. It was so nice because I was in need of a massage. Later that night we went to eat at Saltgrass and then for a walk on "The Strand." It was nice to walk and to see all the historical buildings and shops. The weekend was such a great suprise and we had a good time!!!
At "The Steakhouse"
We had a really good dinner. I ordered lobster and Zach had steak. Since Zach knew some of the ppl that worked there we got a free shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and we got our dessert for free. We had chocolate cheesecake and a berries and creme thing. It was really good and they suprised us by writing on the plate.

Here is the room with the rose petals!!! :)

The view from our hotel room at night!

The view from our hotel room in the day!

This guy was on The Strand. He makes amazing pictures using spray cans.

I was in heaven when I walked into this place. It is called La King's Oldfashioned Ice Cream Parlor. It was like a 50's ice cream parlor. On the other side is this pic. It is a wall full of candy. Alot of candy was there that I used to eat when I was little. YUMMY!

In another chocolate store there were these candy apples. They looked soo good. I didnt get one so i had to aleast take a pic so I can droole over them.

B-day Party

Last Sunday Zach and I went to our cousin's 5th birthday party at the Main Event! She is so cute. Alot of the family was there and it is always nice to see the other side of the family.

My wonderful husband!

So, my wonderful husband came home one night after work with these lovely flowers for me. I was suprised. He did it just because. Those are the best gifts...when they do it when you least expect it.

Costa Rica...

Last week Zach and I returned from a visit to Costa Rica. We went because he was a groomsman in his best friends wedding. Costa Rica was so beautiful and we had a great time. It is very tropical. Zach and I were excited to explore more of Central America. So far, together we have been to Mexico, El Salvador, and Costa Rica. Zach has also been to Nicaragua. We love to travel. We love spending time with each other because memories are what last forever! I told Zach that our next trip will be somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean and it will not involve surfing. hehe! As much and I love the beach and I love watching him surf, I want to experience new places that do not involve a beach. :) We will see what happens! Anyways, here are some pics of our adventure in Costa Rica.
This was the front of our hotel. It is called Harbor Reef. The cool thing about our hotel was that it was literally in the forest. Here are some animals from Costa Rica. I dont know what this next animal is, but he looks like a squirrel.
This is a pic of a Howler monkey. They make a loud weird noise. Zach said it sounds like a pig being slaughtered. haha!
These are lil baby Howler monkies. The owner of our hotel was taking care of them. They were recused from the forest. Their mother was electrocuted from trying to swing from a power line. They said that happens everyday. So, they have a foundation where they are trying to save howler monekies by putting a rubber coating around powerlines. Sad huh?
This lil guy is a bird with rainbow colors. He belonged to the owner of the place where the wedding was. He loved to sing.This is a tucan. He was at our hotel in a huge cage. Everytime I walked up to the cage he would fly over to the edge and look at me like that; with he head cocked to the side. I bet he was thinking what a strange creature I was.
This is one of the pools at our hotel. It was pretty. There were Hibiscus flowers, banana trees, and other exotic flowers around the pool area.

This pic is of a hotel that was up on the hill. You could see it from the beach. We were curious so we went up the hill to check it out. Come to find out, it is an abandoned hotel. At the top is a hand. I was kind of eery when we went inside. It felt like we were in a scary movie and something bad was about to happen. It was a beautiful hotel with an amazing view. I dont know why it would be abandoned.
This is known as the "Blow Hole." It is a hole in some lava rock and when the waves would come in, it would shoot water out the top. It was really cool.
I got to go horseback riding. It was so much fun except that my butt hurt for the next week. It was a 2 hour horseride and my horse loved to run. We started out on the beach and went up the mountain and ended back on the beach. I went with a large group. Zach did not go....He was spending time with the groom and the boys.
In case you havent noticed, my horse is peeing. :)
This was up in the mountain. Really cool! This was the back of our tour guide. She was very pretty. It was her and her dad that lead us. Isnt Costa Rica beautiful? Oh, if you look in the back ground, you can see that abandoned hotel on the hill.
I got a battle wound on the horse ride. As you can see I did not win the battle. The tree did. What happened was we were heading back and there was a fallen tree on the beach. Well, I wasnt looking ahead of me and by time I saw it I could not steer my horse around it and a branch cut into my leg. Im suprised it did not rip my pants. It has now been 3 weeks since it happened and there is still a bruise on my leg. It was so deep that it damaged muscle tissue.
Here is the couple that was getting married. Gorgeous aren't they!
Here is the wedding party! Can you find Zach?
Here are some of the flowers that were in the wedding. I love the flowers down there. They are so tropical and very expensive here in America. These ones are Heliconias.In here are some Ginger and some Heliconias.

This is where the ceremony took place. Gorgeous view right?This was what the ring bearer held. Cleaver idea! They just hot glued a pillow inside the shell.

Father and daughter.These starfish were placed on the tables indicating where you were supposed to sit. Some of the groomsmen. Claude, Justin, and Zach.This was our name tags at the rehearsal dinner. It was a fun and beautiful evening. The food was amazing.

So, as you can see Zach and I had a great time in Costa Rica. Like I said earlier. It is a beautiful country and we enjoyed our visit there. The memories will stay with us for forever.
