Bring It 2012!

What do you say we take a trip down memory lane?


Beau & I finally took the leap and moved in together.
Living in sin has never felt soooo good! ;)


Cruised the deep blue seas with 19 of my closest friends and family
members for the best bachelorette party a girl could ask for.
  Took my bridal portraits at Mercer Aboretum

 Joined the wive's club...

...and went on a surprise honeymoon to the beautiful
Excellence resort in Playa Mujeres, Mexico


Relaxed from all the wedding festivities by partaking in a lot of this...


and this...


Retook my wedding pictures
...yes...retook them. (for my new followers, read here then here.)

 Spent our 4th of July weekend at our fav spot in the world, the Frio River.

Found out one of my best friends, Brooke, was expecting a tiny!!

Traveled to Colorado Springs with my company for the U.S. Women's Open

Drove all the way to Dallas to pick out this baby girl.

Had my first blogger meetup with all these beautiful Houston women!

 Spent a week in Oahu with the mister.


Stayed with my brother in Austin & pretended to be a Longhorn

Helped organize Brookie's gender reveal :)

Cheered our Cougars onto an [almost] undefeated season.

Spent our first "married" Thanksgiving together

Beau's fam ;)

 And here we are...


Currently enjoying our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. Howard

To say 2011 has been a huge/momentous/memorable/exciting year in my life is a complete and utter understatement. I am truly blessed and grateful for everything I have accomplished in these past 352 days and am beyond excited for everything this next year holds for both Beau and myself!
So buh-ring it on 2012! 
Go ahead and try to top 2011!

...I double dog dare ya! ;)
