I've been thinking about this past year,
and it's been a crazy one ;)
First few weeks of being a married couple
Got my old credit card stolen
Chopped my hair off to re-grow it out
Our first married couple dinner party
Got Andrew through this crazy year of school
Trying to make our apartments look like home
Learning to be crafty-ish
Went on two trips to Disneyland - one with my family and one with just my mom
Lost an angel
Got our callings as Sunbeam teachers ;)
Having random late night nice dinners
My Disney Store closed
Got our pictures taken thanks to Perla
Got hooked on Pinterest
Saw the end of an era with Harry Potter 7 part 2
Celebrated our birthdays
Found out we're going to have a baby!
Going together to the OBGYN for our baby appointments
Spent our first Thanksgiving together as a married couple
And now our second Christmas as a married couple
Ok so moving was WAY easier this year than last year! Even though I wasn't able to do much, baby was difficult and I had fevers all through the day (it got comical after awhile). Andrew wouldn't let me do a whole lot so that I didn't get worse or strain the baby, he was very sweet ;) We also had so many people helping us it was amazing! My mom and brother came, my sister-in-law came, my visiting teacher came (yeah I know shocked right!?), and our friend Laurie came and she borught a new friend for us to meet too (yay for more people that know us in the ward!)
What was even greater for us that I was forever grateful was Laurie and her husband Adam (and son Hyrum) brought us some homemade chili and cornbread cuz they figured we hadn't eaten yet and they were right, I hadn't even noticed what time it was! After they left, I cried from sheer gratitude of friends and family that know our needs before I even do!
Ok now the part you've all been waiting for, the pictures ;) See I remembered! I didn't take pictures of the people since I looked gross and didn't want to embarrass anyone ;)
Ok so we moved from this:
Little itty bitty now that we have THIS:
Ok let me explain the random door running into the toliet picture:
So the apartment is a 2 bed 1 3/4 bath. As in 1 toliet and 2 shower/tubs. When they first built the apartment there was a wall separating the toliet from both showers, then they put in a door so you could get to the john from either shower, then they finally decided to just take out the wall and so that door to the other shower totally hits you if you happen to leave it open......super awkward and I felt like I was being stalked by a door hahahahaha
So who loves the tree?? I do I do I do!! My in-laws gave it to us, (thanks Mom and Dad Mills!) friend Laurie set it up, and my brother put the lights on and decorated it! Also don't you love the little elf on the lamp?? I do! That was also my brother's idea (he's really good at that kinda thing)
Ok now I will end my novel! Have a happy wekend! Can you believe it's December!?!??! Yay for anniversary and Christmas month!
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
