it's been a good year.
what more can i ask for besides an amazing family, friends, healthy babies, easy pregnancies, a job, a home
i could go on and on.
here are a few of my top favs of the year.
in no particular order.....

1. my daughter.
ahhhh stella you have changed my world for the better.
sometimes you are almost two going on almost twenty but you make me want to be a better person.
you make me laugh every day.  thank you for being you.
i still can NOT believe you are going to be two in a few short weeks.
i love you to the moon and back.

2, my son.
henry, i was scared out of my mind to have a boy, but you have been a breeze.
you are the best baby, so laid back and such a lover.
i love the way you look at us like we are crazy, it cracks me up.
you are the perfect little boy i have always dreamed of.  i love you.

3. becoming an aunt.
tenley brooke you are beautiful.
i didn't know i could love someone as much as i love my children until you were born.
i can't wait to watch you and stella and henry grow up together. <3

4. seeing Oprah.
what an amazing experience.
i am EXTREMELY fortunate to have had this opportunity.

5. my best friends becoming mommies.

7.  discovering pinterest
i mean where else can i re-plan my wedding, droll over home decor i will never have, diy projects i will never be able to master, food i will guarantee mess up and waste a shit ton of time.
thank you pinterest, i love you.

8. getting an iphone.

10.  a promotion at work.
not only am i fortunate to have a job, i work for an AMAZING company that i love.
i have worked my way up in the almost five years i have been here and i love where i am at.
hard work does pay off!

11.  turning the big 25.
yes, it happened, i am now 25.
as hard of a time that i have had with it, it's not really that bad.
it's just a number.
and shit, i think i've done some pretty awesome things in 25 years!

So bring it 2012.  I am ready.
Happy New Year!!

I honestly can't believe the year is almost over. It has flown! Mason is 7 months old! How did that happen? I just had him. :)

Zack is gonna be 5! Holy cow, I have a 5 year old. He is a kid now! :( Makes me happy and sad all at the same time.

I know I don't blog, but just reading them has brought me lots of new friends also. :) Who knows, maybe I will FINALLY start one.

Love that so many of your favorite things are people - they're the best! I'm very thankful for your friendship this year, even if we've only seen each other face to face a handful of times. :) I hope that the Walter's have a wonderful New Year!
