Reflection on 2011

I started this last year, and I want to continue to do reflect on the last year by summing up our whole year in one post.
In 2011…
In January, Tyler brought Mikey home.  We weren’t supposed to have dogs in our apartment, but with a little white lie to our landlord, we kept him.  And Mikey made our family complete!
 We got SOOO much snow!  The first several weeks of classes were canceled for all the snow we got!
 We closed on our land on January 23rd!
And we started building the next week!
 In January, my first publication came out! 
 In February, we recreated our honeymoon meal on Valentine’s day!  Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi!
In March, we celebrated one year of marriage with a fun night out!  Tyler took me shopping and to eat at PF Chang’s- where we first had dinner the night we “noticed each other” for the first time!
In March, I got my Zumba licensure!
In April, we took a trip to Dallas for Tyler’s business.  This was also a little bit of our anniversary trip- we ate a place we had before in Dallas and did some fun stuff!
In April, we celebrated Easter at my mom’s.
In April, I drove to Alabama to be a bridesmaid in my friend Amanda’s wedding!
In May, I graduated with my Master’s!
The last weekend in May, we moved into our house!
Somewhere in there, I celebrated my 24th birthday (can’t seem to find any pictures…) and then we went to Texarkana for a friend’s wedding.  This is one of my favorite pictures of us of all time.
In June, I also went to Dallas with mom to obtain my license to teach Zumbatomic- Zumba for kids.
In June, we went to Miss Arkansas- where our friend Kristen won!

Tyler celebrated his 25th birthday in September with a GIANT hamburger!
In October, I went to my first Greenwood football home game.  Go Bulldogs! (They ended up winning state for the bajillionth time.  Greenwood lives football).

In October, I hosted my first Zumbathon.
I rode in a hot air balloon at BalloonFest.
I helped with a Zumbathon at BallonFest.
We carved a pumpkin.
In November, Gram gave us all a scare when she fell and hit her head and got brain damage. (She is doing SO much better now!)
We went Black Friday shopping (late Thursday evening) to buy our chest freezer.
In December, our home was full of friends for our first annual cookie swap!
We attended by work Christmas party decked out in our tacky sweaters!
We had our first full size Christmas tree!
2011 was a great year!  It was full of fun, Zumba, and good times with the people we loved.  Looking forward to 2012!
