Happy Two Years!

You might remember that we celebrated our anniversary at Disneyland last year? Well, we thought it was such a great way to celebrate that we did it again. I think this year was much better though since we paced ourselves and lasted much longer.

This year we even went to California adventure to ride a couple rides. Upon recommendation we rode California Screamin and Soaring Over California and both were really really fun!

Here we are in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, we got engaged on the real one.

These truly have been the best two years of my life and I am so grateful for Chris. We are two peas in a happy pod. I love you Chris and can’t wait for the many years to come with you!

***Sorry for the not centered posts, blogger is being really weird and not letting me center anything.

A Little Bit of October & November

Halloween was a while ago but Chris really wanted me to post about it, probably so you could see him wearing the Beckham jersey I made for him. Yes, we were the Beckhams. We had a nice Halloween evening sampling soups with friends and hanging out.

A couple weekends ago Chris and I both had colds, not fun, especially for Chris since he worked so hard that week and then was rewarded by being sick all weekend. I just laughed when I realized what my nightstand looked like. Thankfully, we are all better and can celebrate Thanksgiving without coughing and runny noses.

Here are our gummy vitamins after Chris used the toaster-oven and forgot to move them off the top of it. The gummies on the left didn't handle the heat so well and neither did the jar on the right!

We got to see Kooza, the latest Cirque du Soleil, last week and it was great! Thanks Julie and Ken for those tickets we really appreciate it. Chris worked really late all that week so it was the only time I saw him. The show was really amazing and I really wasn't expecting to like it that much.

The Beach and Aquarium

There are some things about LA that I don’t love but one thing that is incredible is the weather. I went to the beach and the Long Beach Aquarium in October and loved the beautiful weather. I enjoyed the beach with Jamie and baby Ally and our out of town friends Andrea and baby Jamison. The water was freezing but both kiddos couldn’t get enough of it.

On Halloween day we joined Shelly and Josh at the Long Beach Aquarium. Thanks Shelly for the free tickets! We are so cheap these days I don’t know if we would have gone otherwise. Chris and I really enjoyed it and highly recommend the aquarium; it’s only a half hour away! Again, the weather was perfect.

Here is Chris trying to trick the Lorikeet into thinking Chris had food for him. The birds were only friendly if you bought nectar to feed them and I don’t think Chris was the first person to try and trick those birds.

We got to pet sting ray and sharks, it was pretty sweet. Chris is making friends with the cute Harbor Seal. The seals and sea lions were so cute; I really wanted to take one home.

Star fish and Jellies, oh so pretty.
