A Look Back at 2011!

WOW!  What a year!  I can honestly say it's been a great one & I can only hope for 2012 to be just as good!  Here's a picture re-cap of my 2011!

**Warning, this post is a little long but, I promise it's worth it seeing it all!**


Brought in 2011 the right way - dancing around the floor to country music with great friends!

Had a few heavy snows!
Bingham having fun in his first snow!  He was only 4 months old!
Celebrated our 2nd anniversary at Top Golf!  (My gift to Matt!)
Went on my FIRST EVERY ski trip to Red River, NM!

Gotta look good if you're not good at it!  :)

Our last day in Red River!

Visited Cadillac Ranch on our way home!


Hosted our first Couch Surfer, Ben, from Austin!


We also hosted our 2nd Couch Surfer, David, in April!  He was an artist at the Ft Worth Main St Arts Festival and only stayed with us for one night b/c it was during the week!  (Sorry, no pics)

Also, in April we hosted our 3rd Couch Surfers, Martin & Natasja from Denmark!  Martin & Natasja  were traveling through the United States on a 3 month trip!  They showed up on Friday afternoon & we took them where else but to BILLY BOB'S!!!

We took them to our friend's family ranch to shoot skeet & hang out by the camp fire Saturday night!

& we also visited one of our favorite restaurants, Gloria's, Sunday afternoon!
Yummy Margaritas!
We were so sad to see Martin & Natasja go but, they had so much fun seeing the rest of the US!  We can't wait to see them again either here in the US or when we travel to Denmark!

Celebrated Easter in Corpus Christi with my Mom's family!

& look who we got to visit when passing through Austin on the way home...
We stopped to have ice cream at Amy's!  If you're ever in the area, be sure to stop there for a D-Lish treat!


Cheered on our Texas Rangers when they lost to the Yankees!


Went to ROT Rally in Austin, TX!  2nd time to the rally on 6th St, 1st time out to the actual rally grounds!
Nothing but motorcycles lines up & down 6th St!

Had WAY too much fun at some friend's wedding in Fredericksburg, TX!


Celebrated the 4th of July at PK Lake!!!
Tha girls!
A couple of tha boyz!


Traveled south of Houston to see one of my college girlfriends get hitched!

& since I caught the bouquet, Matt was thrilled!


Hit up Ranch Bash with the girls!
(Apparently I like that dress??  Whatev, it's cute!)

We're college kids again for a night... Tarleton Homecoming 2011!

We're ladies of "The Fabulous Fifties" at work for Halloween!


Celebrated the Gillean's getting hitched!

Celebrated my 25th Birthday!!!

Traveled to Graham & Corpus Christi for Thanksgiving with our families!


Participated in the first ever "How the Glitz Stole Christmas Glitz & Glam Blog Swap"!
Goodies from my partner Hilary!

Welcomed Emma Michele into the world!!!
Isn't she PRECIOUS!?!?
I'm sooo excited she's finally here!!!

Participated in our first Toy Run!

& enjoyed each other's company Christmas Eve & Christmas day!

If you made it this far in this post, CONGRATS!  I realize this post is a bit lengthy but, we've had a busy year full of great memories!  There's even some important times (brother's graduation), I didn't post about because I don't have those pictures on my computer!  I hope you too can look back on your 2011 year & know that you had so much fun & a great year!

I feel like I've come a long way in this bloggy world this year & have "met" some fun friends!  Thanks to Mrs. Gillean for getting me interested in blogging!  & I'm so glad to have new blogging friends like Miss Amy & Miss Hilary!  I look forward to making many new blogging friends in 2012!

We'll be ringing in the new year in the BIG EASY!  I hope everyone has a great & safe NYE!!!
