2013 - Year in Review

Well I almost can't believe it...we are at the end of another year.  It has definitely been a great one for us and I am so looking forward to next year.

2014 is going to be our best year yet.  We have a few secrets up our sleeves that I cannot wait to tell you all about. :)

I hope you enjoy this year in review and we wish you a very wonderful next one!!
Get ready for picture overload - this is my warning in advance :)

I celebrated my 24th birthday

Ryan and I celebrated Valentine's Day via FaceTime ::Thank God for Apple products::
Went to Disneyland with the cutest little boy ever ::Gavin Alan::  All that was missing was his Uncle RyRy

I participated in my first ever Run or Dye event.  I was joined by some great company ::my favorite little girl - Pumpkin Pie:: and we were a complete mess.

Ashley and I took Pumpkin Pie to an Egg Hunt at a local park and we missed the hubs terribly for Easter.

Saw Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley in concert with Ashley K ::Ashley G at the time - yay for weddings!::
Celebrated my mom's birthday
Celebrated Mother's Day
Waited for Ryan to come home

Found a house for Ryan and I to live in once he returned home from deployment

My Sister came to town
Had the most wonderful bridal shower ever
Celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary with my mom, Ashley and Pumpkin Pie
Ryan FINALLY came home

Went to Disneyland with the Parsons Family ::Pumpkin Pie::

My brother, sister-in-law and Gavin came to town for the wedding along with a million other loved ones. :)
Renewed our love and devotion for one another

Got to bring Hank home just in time for...
CHRISTMAS - as a little family of 2 humans and 2 furbabies :)

We also got some really great news in December but that is part of the surprise that we are keeping until next year.  Stay tuned to find out.  I guarantee it will be super exciting! :)  It is for our little family at least!

I have a few goals to accomplish in 2014:
+ be a better wife - although I already spoil him, there are times when we both get a little upity :)
+ buy a house and make it a home
+ become a mommy
+ live a healthier lifestyle - more veggies and exercising
+ eliminate the debt and increase the savings - I work on this monthly but will continue in 2014 and hopefully only have a mortgage and two car payments in the ways of debt.

See you in 2014 - another year older ::literally because it is my birthday tomorrow:: and hopefully wiser in some way


  1. Ohhh that photo of you and Ryan kissing when he came home makes my heart go all pitter-patter <3 Cheers to 2014!!

    1. Oh I know! It is probably my favorite from that day as well. Such a wonderful feeling. Just thinking about it makes me all mushy and flutterblies in my tummy!
