2011 - A year in review

Pin It!

January
We spent the first day of 2011 the same way we did last year
{and the year before and the year before}
At the Norris's house.
They are close friends of Brandon's family
and they have a gorgeous home in Rancho Santa Fe
with a HUGE circular family room,
giant Christmas tree, tons of couches and a fireplace.
Essentially we lay, eat, chat and watch football.
Check out this amazing play-house they have on their property
and tell me this wouldn't have been your dream as a child!
February
We took our annual girls' trip to Carmel and I bought myself a Tiffany's Ring

March & April
These months were filled with Law School Functions!
Dinner at Hotel Del for Law Review
PB Rowing Club for Casino Night
Brunch at the Star of the Sea restaurant
May
After three torturously long years, Brandon graduates from Law School!
{and immediately begins studying for the bar}

June & July
were filled with Baby Showers!!!
Ashley's Baby Shower (followed by Amber's baby shower the following week)
Kelly's Baby Shower
Cheri's Baby Shower
We also welcomed our third niece Lia into the world
{at 10 pounds 2 oz people!}

and celebrated my 28th birthday in Palm Springs

August
Our little house on Vulcan sold and we moved into our current duplex.
Brandon began his first of five months as a house-husband
{and I began my first of five months as the sole provider}
He completed several projects including our kitchen!
And I decided to blog more seriously.

September
Kandi's birthday month
{my bestfriend in the entire world}

October ♥
We celebrated our One Year Anniversary in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands!

November
I attended my TEN year high school reunion!

December
We celebrated Christmas in Las Vegas
and saw The Lion King the musical

Sometimes it scares me how quickly time seems to be passing us by.
I want to slow it all down and make sure I'm soaking every bit of it up.
I'm so very excited to see what 2012 has in store for our little family :-)

Happy New Years!!!
XO,
