[2011] Year In Review

Completed another year of age. The husband was very sneaky and surprised an entire birthday weekend for me.

Completed my first full year as an "adult", of work experience. YEAH ME! :)

Started to create/design, myself and other friends, wedding invitations.

Crossed off a line on my bucket list, I got my first tattoo(s).

My "fiance" graduated college, and commissioned as an Officer in the United States Army. This was a very proud moment for him!

Started to really get into the wedding planning, and brought the husband to his first CUSA (Country USA) experience.

Had our first Fourth of July Camping Trip/Tubing Down the River, which we are trying to make a tradition now every year.

Our wedding day. Three words that pretty much sum up this entire year together!

We officially became Apartment Renters. I learned that my husband has a lot more hunting stuff, then he lets on, and understanding his idea of "clean" is not the same as mine. :)

Took a road trip to Texas to send off my Husband for the next three months for his Army Training. Made a stop, half way through, in Nashville. One of our favorite cities!

Got into a routine, living by myself. Kept myself busy visiting lots of friends. Started working out at the gym regularly and actually lost 15 pounds!! I got back to the weight I was, when I first started college. 

Finally got into my blog, regularly. Took another road trip (from Texas to home) with the Husband, back from his training. Spent our first holiday together.

This year has been a great one! With a lot of up's, I'm sure it'll be different in years to come. But looking back it it, it was a fantastic year!

What does your 2011 look like?
