Easily my favorite post of the year. I remember thinking back in January "Well in the review post January is going to be really boring again" and I still can't think of anything cool to write about January. Sad.
It’s kind of a boring month, with all the recovery from the holidays. Jim did take me snowboarding in Arizona, it is such a different experience than when you snowboard in Utah!
My parent's came to visit, and we learned the difference in being burglarized and robbed. You have to be home to be robbed. That was lots of fun, I haven't really slept well since. (especially last night when I was positive someone was breaking into the neighbors house at 2:30, and 3:30, and 4:30.)
We spent yet another amazing spring break in Mexico. We LOVE Mexico
We both grew another year older, and wiser too. We also babysat these two crazy kids with Tay while their parents enjoyed two days at Disney!
Jim got a promotion at work, and Taylor and I made the most amazing head boards ever. Maybe George helped a little too.
We enjoyed our super fun vacation in San Francisco and returned home 100% determined to find a new job, accepted a new job, SURPRISE a positive pregnancy test, and told Nordstrom it was time to peace out. (in that exact order)
We spent the 4th in Utah, Jim came back to Arizona to work and go to school and I suffered a case of pink eye in Yellowstone. We also celebrated our 2nd anniversary in Vegas, although I spent most of the time sleeping and being sick. So sorry Hub, you planned a good trip despite my 10 week pregnant body. and last but not least we let everyone know that baby Ross would be joining us in February.
Apparently not much happened this month. I thought I looked really pregnant, and now I know I was just a crazy person. We suffered some bad luck with my car, and the a/c in our house, but thanks to that handy man husband of mine he fixed it, all at the same time as buying a crib!
Also a fairly boring month, but our luck turned around and I won a brand new iPad at a work party! Woo Hoo!
Jim became the proudest man alive as we found out baby Ross would be baby boy Ross. We dressed up as a baker and an oven for Halloween, and spent some money on cute baby clothes!
I started to really really really feel pregnant. My family came to Arizona for Thanksgiving,
We packed everything in. We went to temple lights, decorated for Christmas inside and out, attended Christmas parties, Jim won the grand prize for the best Christmas Treat in all of finance at insight, took our last flights as a family of two (how on earth do people fly with babies?!) and Celebrated Christmas with snow on the ground.
It is so cliché to say, but 2012 you were a great year. Full of surprises both good and bad, lots of growth mentally and physically, and lots of change. As good as you were, I'm happy to see you go. 2013 is going to be even more crazy, stressful, and fun. I can't wait to get things underway!!
