looking forward to 2012!

2011 was overall a great year for us. Here are some highlights of 2011:

Joe went oh a short deployment and returned after five weeks.

Connor started out as a 6 month old baby to a big 18 month old! lots of "firsts" for him this year!

We moved from Oak Harbor to Auburn Wa. I was really happy for us to get out of the Navy but I was sad to see our good friends Josh, Samantha, and baby Addy go. We miss them!

Almost all of Joe's entire family came to visit us last Summer. It was so fun for the kids to play with their cousins.

Connor turned one and had a cute "little red wagon" party.

We gave away our dog Max. One of the hardest decisions we have had to make. I still catch myself crying over him. We really loved that pup.

We drove to Idaho twice, for a reunion and a funeral for my grandma.

Joe and I celebrated our fifth anniversary.

Went on some great hikes with family and friends.

I did a "gladiator fun run" with a friend. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I felt so good that I actually finished it!

I went from a brunette to a Blondie.

I lost 50 pounds.

I took a quick trip to Utah to visit my friend Brooke. I had so much fun! I wish we lived closer!

I turned 25.

We got a new puggle puppy, Brady named him Thor.

Brady turned three!

There were quite a few down points of last year but I wont talk about them. This year my goals are to stay positive and live healthy. I think I am done losing weight so I just need to keep doing what I'm doing enjoy life. I have a feeling 2012 will be a big year for us! :)
