Recap of 2011

2011 is coming to a close and it is bitter sweet. This has been the best year of my life so far! I am so excited to see what 2012 has in store for us. I know it will be amazing!

Celebrated New Years with great friends!

Went and saw one of our favorite performers, Cory Morrow. We requested he play our future first dance song and he did!!
Played in the snow & ended up getting the truck stuck...

Went snow skiing in Santa Fe. This was our 4th or 5th year to go in a row. We look forward to it every year!
Bridal shower #1 hosted by these beautiful ladies & great friends in Dallas!

Went to my cousin's beautiful wedding in Austin.
Bridal Shower #2 in Houston.

Finished grad school!!! YAY!!!!! I know have my Masters in Administration. 

Had my bachelorette party. One of the only pictures from my bachelorette party :-( I need to get them from the other girls!

Got married!!!!
Honeymoon in Antigua!

Group trip to New Braunfels. 
One of my best friends got married!!
Finishing grad school celebration!! 
Celebrating summer with an amazing group of teachers!! So thankful for each one of them (& some are missing).

Family trip to Destin, Fl.

One of my beautiful best friends got engaged!! Unfortunately we were not there to celebrate but did soon after! 

Signed our first contract to build our house but then cancelled due to lots of reasons! This was really hard for me to understand at the time but everything happens for a reason! It turned out to be a true blessing! But just for memories, here is what it would have looked like. 

Painting with the bride to be!! Can't wait for next July when she gets married!! MOH duties are starting...

My beautiful sister got her Aggie ring!!

Signed a new (& way better) contract on our new home! Expected closing date is May 15th. 

Wow! Looking back through all of the pictures from this year brought back so many wonderful memories. I can't believe so much happened in one year. I am so blessed to have everyone I do in my life!!! Here's to 2012 and it being a great year!
