Out With The Old...

Here, here to a fabulous, crazy, amazing 2011!

It has been a whirlwind of a year for little 'ol me. I would say this has been one of the best years of my life. For obvious reasons, and for some not so obvious ones.

For those of you who asked, I promise in the next week or so to have some new DIY's, recipes and tutorials comin' atcha (I've been a bit slacker-ish in that area lately).

But for now..a little look back at this year!

The Good:

--Becoming a Mama for the first time in June to our little guy, DAVIS RYAN (he might be my favorite thing in the world)

--Being able to buy our FIRST HOUSE (uber exciting)!

--Starting up (again) some true PASSIONS of mine (writing/blogging/painting/creating)

--Celebrating our 3 year ANNIVERSARY (it's small in years, but big in importance to us, cause it was one of our FIRST DATES after we had D)!

--Going on a "BABYMOON" to Cabo San Lucas, one of the best vacations ever (even though I was 3 months prego at the time).

--Sending my little Bro off to ARGENTINA (such a great accomplishment for him and my VERY proud Mom).

(*This is gonna be a cheesy one, so hold on tight) Really realizing that life is absolutely precious and that dwelling on silly, unimportant things is a waste of time. Life is GRAND!!

There were many more great little moments, but I will stow those away in the overhead bin for now!

There were definitely some NOT-SO-GOOD moments too, but I don't really want to dwell on the bad. And besides, this year is almost over, right?! On to bigger and happier times in 2012!

ALSO...I know this blog is still small, but for those who follow, read, comment or just browse my blog, I want to say a HUGE HUGE "YOU'RE AWESOME!" I love all your comments (that is..if they are nice)! I have met some really funny, talented, gorgeous bloggy friends! Loves to you all!

So, Happy (a little early) NEW YEAR to all my friends, family & followers! I can't wait for next year to begin!

  11. How cute is your little nugget?! And don't be shy about celebrating 3 years. I used to, but then I figured why not celebrate the small stuff too? The small stuff is what gets you through to the big stuff! So congrats on the baby, the house, and the 3 years. Very exciting. Cheers!
