So good food, good friends, and low key was the perfect way to end the year :)

Please do pardon Brandon's creepy eyes!! For the life of me, I couldn't correct them!

I've loved reading every one's recaps of 2011! I pretty much did a review of the year in our anniversary post so I didn't want to re-blog what's already been blogged :) But I did want to add a few highlights from the year that weren't included!
In January we got our sweet snuggle bunny - Benson! He's a sweet thang with quite a
personality! He keeps me company when B's on the road and provides us plenty of
entertainment! He was definitely a highlight of the year!
In March I started this here blog! I've so enjoyed having a little online journal of our life! I know it will be a great way to kind of "store" my memories and I've met some wonderful fellow bloggers along the way :)
Over the year, I went to 3 different bachelorette parties & we went to 3 friends' weddings! Tis the season of our life I guess...all our friends are getting married! Such a fun season though :)

Back to back wedding weekends this fall - First Erin & David, then Ryan & Kelly!
There was lots of fun and lots of dancing :)
...got my iPhone! Man I love this thing. It's probably actually unhealthy. We're attached...and...
...I went on my first helicopter ride!!
2011 was definitely a great year with many blessings!! Among other things - we enjoyed vacations with loved ones, time with our families, birthdays, & we celebrated 1 whole year of marriage! We learned how to fight and how to make up :) We learned how to have fun date nights and make decisions together. It was a good year.
That being said, I'm always excited for a new year and what it may hold! I'm so looking forward to fulfilling my Matron of Honor duties & celebrating my cousin Erin's wedding to her best friend. I'm excited to go on a Cruise with my husband that he definitely earned. I can't wait for more sweet time with the people that mean the world to me and fill this heart up.
I'm not really one much for resolutions. I think I used to be, but realized they're always kind of the same - we do have a few goals for the year (and the next years in general) as well as some dreams, too :)
So here's to hoping that 2012 brings us:
1 - a house!! We're just beginning to start this process...more on that later!
2 - good health! Maybe more eating in and cooking for ourselves and less eating out.
3 - a half marathon. (This one gets no exclamation point.) I feel like this is my year...I'm gonna do it.
4 - meaningful time spent with one another! Less time on my computer & phone when Brandon's home and more time engaged with him :)
5 - meaningful time spent with family and friends! This one should be easy and fun!
6 - meaningful time spent in the Word! We started a new devotional together and we need to find a church home.
Happy, happy new year friends! May it be a blessed year for you all and may your cup be filled and runneth over this year :)
