2012 Year in Review

Pin It!

I recently re-read my 2011 Year in Review and it inspired me to recap 2012 :-)

-We rang in the new year with one of my best friends - Britt, who was visiting from Scotland.
  -Brandon got his first job as a practicing attorney! This job was everything we could have hoped for, and one year later Brandon still loves it. It's 2 miles down the street from our house, he loves the people he works with and it's in an area of law that Brandon really enjoys: Employment Law.

-We watched our friends Jason and Erica say "I do" in Arizona!
 -I attended my very first So Cal Blogger meet-up!

-I participated in the Shine Beach Clean-Up in San Diego

-Brandon and I celebrated our 5 year dating anniversary (do any other married couples still celebrate their dating anniversary?)

May & June
-Found out I was pregnant! and spent the next few months throwing up and miserable!
 Seriously - these months are a fog to me now.

-Began to feel relatively human again. Sprouted a gut, and got to see our baby GIRL via ultrasound!

August & September
-continued to grow larger, and feel better and better by the day.
 -started my very last class of my Master's Program!!!! 
-moved out of our tiny duplex and into the cutest little house.

-Took our babymoon to the Virgin Islands {26 weeks}
-I finished my last class and officially have my Master's degree!!! Hallelujah!
-We had our baby shower and announced baby girl's name :-)
 -We celebrated Brandon's 33rd Birthday

-We had an incredible Christmas with both of our families {37 weeks}
 -started to feel a little nervous about the bundle of joy that is due in just two short weeks!
-I finished about 17 loads of laundry washing all of her tiny things
-Brandon put her swing together
-Almost done packing our hospital bag
