Our Past and Upcoming Weekend

So this Friday is Kristen's 24th Birthday. The BIG 2-4. Whooo!! Man we are getting old, well at least I am. Anyways, we have a packed weekend in store for us with all the celebrating we are going to be doing. So for her Birthday gift I got her, you really think I would just post it on here so everyone would know? Ha! If I told you it was a brand new car you think that would be able to be kept a secret? I didn't think so. So that's why I am not saying. Anyways, birthdays are always fun so we are both looking forward to it.

This past Sunday we celebrated my dad's birthday, I think he's like a 100 or something. I lost count after the candles covered the entire cake. We had dinner over at my parents house and hung out and played that game with the golf balls that is kind of like horeshoes, but we still don't have a name for it. Anyways, it was fun as always! Even though the team I was on lost the game, set and match. We all had a great time and we made fresh guacamole!! Can't be a party without that.

On Saturday night Kristen and I went out to dinner after church with Ben and his wife Rachel. They are both on the Worship team at church and they are awesome people. We had a great time talking to them and picking their brains about marriage and advice that they had for us as we continue our path towards our wedding day.

Found a new favorite song this weekend as well. It is by Third Day and is called Call My Name. It is awesome!

Songs I Like:

Favorite songs on my IPod:

1. Let it Fade (Jeremy Camp)
2. My Savior My God (Aaron Shust)
3. Came to my Rescue (Hillsong United)
4. Strong Tower (Kutless)
5. Voice of Truth (Casting Crowns)

Let this old life crumble, let it fade. Let this new life offered be your saving grace.
In our life be lifted high, In our world be lifted high, In our love be lifted high.
But the voice of truth tells me a different story. The voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!" The voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"

These are just some of the lyrics of these songs. They have such an amazing message and make you realize that you are not living for you alone, you are living for a higher purpose that can be revealed to you by accepting God's Grace.

I am so thankful to have Kristen to share my life with and continue on our journey with God. I love you babe!!

Weekend and Father's Day

Well this past weekend was awesome! Kristen and I got a chance to chill out. On Friday we went to Chipotle after a long hiatus from this awesome cuisine! I must say it was awesome, the carnitas there are out of this world. We decided to have our Netflix night but it's sad to say we were disappointed with the movie Lions for Lambs. We both felt that the movie didn't answer any questions and felt that it ended too soon and it left us hanging on what was going to happen. On Saturday morning we went over to Kristen's mom's house to visit with the new kitten. It was going crazy the whole time we were there climbing on stuff and chasing the older cat all over the house.
On Saturday evening we went to Church and Pastor Kevin started a new series about Defeating Death that was really concise and to the point about why we are here and what our purpose should be. After church we tried an Italian restaurant in Highland Village called Patrizzios. It was pretty darn tasty! After dinner we were introduced to a really fun game that's a better version of horseshoes but we used golf balls tied together with rope. Once we figure out what the name of the game is and a easy way to explain it we will post the details.
Sunday was Father's day so we got together and took the dads out for lunch. We went to Red Hot and Blue and we must say we were very impressed! The ribs were out of this world and the sweet tea is served by the pitcher. Both dads really enjoyed their lunch and had a great time. All in all it was a great weekend and we are looking forward to the coming weekend already!

Rangers and Fireworks

This is Kristen and I at the Ranger game on May 31st. We didn't really go to watch the game, althought somehow the Rangers managed to win that night 8-4, we went for the Fireworks Show after the game. It was pretty cool, they played a bunch of old songs by Elvis, The Beach Boys and the Beatles. Fireworks are cool, just don't light twenty sparklers all at once in your hand thinking that it will make one huge sparkler. It didn't work like I thought it would.

Trip Planner Extraordinaire!!

Kristen and I are heading to the Travel Agent to talk about our Honeymoon destination options. We have narrowed it down to the following: The Carribean, that is all. We have been talking about possible destinations and trip ideas for a while, but we both like the idea of turquoise water and white sand, and the snorkeling and maybe even swimming with some sharks!! Well, maybe not but it's sounds exciting. I know we'll have a great time wherever we go.

Mom's Surprise B-day Party

Oscar, me and Sebastian at my mom's surprise birthday party!

We're Enagaged...!!!

We're engaged!! I'm so excited, we are setting the date for May 16, 2009. Sebastian proposed on our family trip to Austin, I didn't even see it coming. It was very romantic. We are both currently living in Grapevine at the apartments behind Grapevine Mills Mall. I still work at the Gaylord and Sebastian is still at Hilton. I think we are destined to stay in the hotel business. We have two little boys, Buddy and Moo. They are truly are children, we wouldn't know what to do without them.
Blogging is new for the both of us and we're lookng forward to keeping everyone posted on our life and journey up to our wedding day.
Things that have been on my mind lately:
1. Finding a chapel for the wedding, a lot harder than one might think.
2. Really wanting to get another dog, but realizing we first need a backyard.
3. How much I dread my upcoming speech class next month.
4. How I can become a better fiance for Sebastian.
5. How can a banana be perfectly yellow when I leave my house then as soon as I get to work it turns brown..??
