Lifestyles of the Rich and "FAMOUS"

We've had a whirlwind of a time with our engagement party and now wedding planning ..........October 13th is coming up quickly but we're ready!

Got wind that we're famous when I was emailed this article!


Enamored in Encinitas: High school ended a long time ago for Encinitas sweethearts Phil Gallo and Angie Trulson.

In the mid-1980s, they ran with same crowd. He played football and soccer; she was a gymnast.

But 26 years had passed when Gallo took a knee in front of the waterfall at the San Diego Botanic Garden recently to propose.

"We came from separate junior high schools, but met at San Dieguito High School," he told me on Wednesday. "We had a lot of the same friends."
Trulson left town before he did, but Gallo stayed away longer, studying acupuncture and opening his own business in Los Angeles, where he was living when his mother passed away in 2010.

"In November of 2010, after 25 years of not seeing each other, we ran into each other a local bar ---- the Encinitas Ale House," he recalled. "When we got to talking with one another, she asked me, 'Are you Phil Gallo? I'm Angie Trulson.' So after all that time, we reconnected."

There was no way that Gallo and Trulson, the high school freshmen, could have foreseen their happy-ever-after moment 2 1/2 decades in the future.

"I don't think she thought of it ---- I sure didn't think of it," he said. "We still tell this story to everybody. If we knew then what we know now ... who knows what could have come of it? But you live, you grow, you experience life."

Gallo, now 44, moved back to Encinitas last summer, opening his acupuncture and personal training business, Acu-Fit, after closing up shop in L.A. Their wedding is planned for October.

"She was a really sweet girl" back in high school, he said. "A very cute, blond-haired, blue-eyed, athletic girl. When you're that young, you don't pay too much attention, but she was very outgoing and positive."

Here comes the bride...............

My daughter and her boyfriend of a year just got a fantastic place together in Crown Point. On Saturday my mom, sister and I went to their place to help get them set up and start decorating.........all the while their were other plans happening behind the scenes. We all spent the morning together shopping and organizing and then it was time to head back home. Phil had planned for us to go to the Quail Botanical Gardens in the afternoon. We'd been a few months ago and kept meaning to go back and really take time walking around and enjoying it. Of course my sister was starved so we stopped at In-N-Out on our way back home and so we took a little longer than planned. My sister and mom literally DOVE out of the car when we pulled up to the house and were gone without barely saying Gbye. I was like okay, what in the hell is going on here!
When I got in the house these were on the coffee table
I try to keep flowers most of the time but this bouquet was so big I was like "WOW" good job bb. Phil totally downplayed them and said "You always get flowers for the house so I wanted to do something nice for you for always keeping our home so amazing".......I was like okay and he said lets get over to the gardens.....I kinda felt like is something going on cuz Phil doesnt usually PLAN THINGS. Im the planner and keep our social calendar for him to have this day organized I was was thinking I would just go with the flow and enjoy it. DONT QUESTION HIM AND JUST ENJOY! haa haa

We walked around a bit and I said "Hey I think there is a waterfall over here.........." As we walked around the rain forest within the gardens we came up to the waterfall. Phil made me pose like a tourist and point at the waterfall.

I was laughing so hard cuz he was taking forever and i just stood there like a dork posing and pointing with my back to him. He said ok now face me and I'll get a normal non tourist I turned around he was on one knee with a card and handed it to me.......

I dont even remember what the card said......I was trying not to cry.............then he asked me to marry him........and I said "YES!"

People were walking by and congratulating us and we started calling family and friends.........He had it planned for a while and he had told Keir days before and she told my mom and sister while we were at her new place. So they all knew all day!!!!!! Stinkers.

So thats our story. He had champagne for us so we had that overlooking Swamis and now we just enjoy our engagement and our future. Oh and here's the ring! Tee hee...........L.O.V.E. Phil & Angie

2 wee ones, an accidential pub crawl with a wolf pack of Gallos & a quiet lunch......

Well this weekend was a giant accident of FUN FUN AND MORE FUN!!!!!!!!! We had Plum and Shug for a few hours on Friday. Our friends had asked us earlier in the week to go to pizza at the new Pandora's Pizza in Leucadia. We said we couldnt cuz we were watching the girls. But once the girls arrived we were re-thinking our decision because the idea of driving to Solana Beach to go tackle the mobs at Pizza Port became pretty unappealing. I called Ranelle and said we were gonna come if there was room for us. She said absolutely! We get to Pandora's and their are 2 surprises. 1st Pandora's is owned by our high school friends that also own Bull Taco.....SURPRISE! And the 2nd surprise was it was Ranelle's birthday! Ok, now most people would be excited and happy.........I was so mad! How could her husband or her not have told me it was her birthday party!!!!!!!!!! No gift, No card...........Nothing! Oh man is Mike gonna pay! ha ha But Ranelle didnt want to make a big deal so that's why they kept it quiet. I understand so we told them they must come to our house for a proper party with us. Brats!Plum and Shug had a great time. Ends up family friends were there and they loved that their mommy had known the Haber Family all her life and they got to meet all the people their mommy knew when she was a kid. They jumped on Carole's lap like they had known her for years. Those Habers are all so awesome. Family then, Family forever.
Phil with George and George Haber
Maz and Kelis with their birthday cupcakes

Ranelle is the girl in the purple top! Melissa, now you know who Im talking about all the time.......her and her husband are the ones who camp!

Got back to the house and as promised were off to the jacuzzi! Got to have your spa attire on.....they loved the slippers! ha ha

Saturday mornin' we had a yard sale and SOLD a ton of junk! The garage is clean and my car fits and we can now successfully get to the laundry. A year later..............Oh well we did it and now all of our things we combined when Phil moved from LA is done and we are stuck together forever cuz now we only have one of everything! ha ha FOREVER PHIL! LOL After the yard sale we met up with Phils Bro Tommy, his son Andrew, his Sister Mare & her daughter Olivia @ Encinitas Ale House MmmmmmmmmmmmmmmYummi! Beers and Fish & Chips. Hi Encinitas on a sunny Sunday............cant beat it! We thought that would be it but we all decided to enjoy our town and walk around a bit. Encinitas Trading Company and Queen Eileens are local lil shoppes that have all sorts of trinkets, tshirts, handmade items, you name it.........So we had ourselves a ball. Everyone was trying things on, buying things for one another.......pure comedy. The brothers ran into The Saloon for a shot and then we all went over to the Seaside Bazarr for more shopping! More? YES!

The sun was still warm and we werent done spending time together so we all went to Wine Steals sat outside and finished up our impromptu family style pub crawl with beer and a boatload of desserts.

Marianne, Me, Olivia, Andrew, Phil & Tom

ha ha did you think the day ended there? OMG! We took the boys over to H&M cuz they had never been there. Shopped some more, then to Tilly's for more shopping, Casa De Bandini for a beer..............and finally the day eneded with 5 Guys Burgers and Fries for dinner!!!! Not to mention one last Gallo........Poppa Carmine met up with us. Friggin hysterical!!!! 7 hours from start to finish with what was supposed to be "Lunch".

Sunday we slept in and OH NO! Its another sunny day...............rise and shine..........time for more fun!!!! We went to our lil spot at blue ribbon pizzaria

The chef cuts the bread into a heart. Its so cool I love it! Our food was delicious and the day was a perfect ending to our weekend of fun in the sun.
