2011 in Review

2011 was a great year for us.  A few of the highlights of this past year were:

  • Visiting my brother in his new home in February.
  • Ryan finding a new truck, which in the end led to us selling our old truck, switching banks and getting our finances on track thanks to our new amazing financial advisor.
  • Purchasing our first home in July.
  • Visiting my grandparents in Ontario for two weeks.
  • Watching Extreme Couponing for the first time, which inspired me to being a more frugal shopper, which has saved us tons of money this year.
  • Taking in a several concerts including Johnny Reid, Kenny Chesney (with Uncle Cracker and Billy Currington), Dean Brody, Aaron Lines and Derek Ruttan.
  • Ryan and I spending our first anniversary weekend together in a hotel in Edmonton (as Ryan was away working). Our weekend consisted shopping, tons of good food and just being together after spending a long summer apart.
  • Returning home from anniversary weekend to find out that I am pregnant!
  • Finally taking some photography courses after 3 years of using my digital SLR camera on Auto mode.
  • Surprising Ryan when he returned home with a photo album announcing that I am pregnant!
  • Ryan's parents moving back home from Edmonton, which only leaves Ryan's sister out of province now for our two immediate families.
  • Ryan starting a new job close to home, which means him being home every night and no more long distance relationship!
  • My Manitoba grandparents moving to a nearby town so that I can now visit them whenever I want!
  • The birth of my two BFF's babies (both firsts), with whom I am super excited to raise our baby with.
Here's to an equally amazing 2012!
