Goodbye, 2011. You were so good to me.

2011 was a fanstastic year. So many wonderful memories were made. 

In the past year I...

Enjoyed many pre-wedding festivities








Graduated from the U of M

Fixed up my great grandmothers house to be our first home

Married my best friend

Honeymooned in Orlando

Stood beside two beautiful friends as they said "I do"


Spent a week at the beach with my family

Traveled to California see my best friend

Traveled to Fayetteville to watch the Razorbacks play destroy the Vols

Celebrated our first married Christmas
And those were just the BIG things. 
Of course, there were lots of little things that made 2011 very special.

2011 was {without a doubt} the best year of my life, but I have a feeling 2012 is going to be a fantastic year. Thankful that I have such an amazing husband to share it with. :)
I can't wait to see what God has in store of us this year!

Fill in the blank Friday.

Happy Friday loves!

Time to link up with Lauren for another Fill in the Blank Friday.

1.   New Years is   a time to reflect on the previous year, be thankful for the blessings God gave you that year, & look forward to what He will do in your life in the next 12 months :)

2.   One of my New Year's resolutions will be  to run the St. Jude Country Music half marathon in April. Super excited! {And nervous!}   .

3.  A New Year's resolution I've made in the past was to  lose weight{NYE:2010}. It's actually the only "New Year's resolution" I've ever made. However; I have some good goals for 2012 that I'm going to share with y'all soon  .

4. The most time consuming resolution I ever made was   to lose weight. January of 2010 I started working towards this goal and by May 2010 I'd lost 50 pounds! & I've actually lost another 10 pounds since then :)    .

5.  This year I will be spending New Year's Eve   at home with my wonderful husband. We have fun night in planned :)

6.  If I could wish one thing for my new year it would be   to be a good wife to my sweet man.

7.  2012 is going to be   great :) 2011 was the best year of my life. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us in 2012!    .

Christmas 2011: Part three.

For dinner we went to my other grandmother's house and had a delicious meal of lasagna & garlic bread! Oh & sweet potato pie for dessert. Oh my word. YUM!
My sister & I with our grandmother, great grandmother, & her dog Sophie.
We ended our day at Jonathan's parents' house.
