a few favorite highlights from this past year:
january – kicked off the new year with a trip to the cabin with our dear friends, introduced b to the blogging world, watched kenz in peter pan, went ring shopping and celebrated with dinner.
february was a month of excitement – i had my first taste of crab, ate a fancy meal at the roof, celebrated our first valentines day, b had a chat with my dad, and wa la, we were engaged!
march – we had a few warm days and picnics, started the crazy wedding planning, and went country dancing.
april – we had engagements taken, spent a weekend in washington for lisa’s wedding and put on our dancing shoes, and b’s parents flew in from new york for easter.
may – started purchasing furniture for our apartment, enjoyed 2 lovely bridal showers, painted and sanded more furniture than we bargained for, had my dress altered, and shopped till we about dropped.
june – we took a trip to st. george with a pitt stop in scipio, floated down the virgin river, sent out wedding invites galore, partied at lagoon for b’s 28th birthday with the fam, I went through the st. george temple for my first time, then had an open house, moved into our apartment, and partied it up at the hotel the night before the wedding.
july – we sealed the deal and it was the happiest day of my life, partied it up at the reception, then headed out of the country for a week in paradise. i finally got a stamp in my passport, we settled into our apartment, had a little “oh-crap-we-could-be-preggers-with-a-honeymoon-baby-scare-but-no-worries-it’s-just-the-birth-control-messing-with-my-system” moment (tmi?), and celebrated the fact that we were finally hitched!
august – took our first camping trip, traveled back to new york, I started school, and we had way too much fun cooking in our teeny kitchen.
september – my third semester of school was in full swing, zac got baptized, my mama came for a little visit. we shopped, shopped, and oh yeah, shopped, this time not for wedding supplies!
october – my old blog crashed, i gave you a tour of our new apartment, we attempted to make caramel apples and failed, carved some pumpkins, and took a romantic weekend away.
november – i turned 20! b spoiled me silly, our car broke died, and we celebrated thanksgiving with the family.
december – we bought our first christmas tree and purchased a newish car. we made oreo shakes, I made it through finals, we sent out our christmas card via the blog, it finally snowed, and we had our first christmas together.
