2011 in Review

 We rang in the new year in Savannah, made some resolutions (some we kept and some 
Made a lot of cupcakes, and survived the great snowpocalypse of 2011!

I made some super cute cupcakes to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary (yup, they got married on Groundhogs day!) We got some more snow in Atlanta, and I celebrated valentines day with my hubs. <3

Our world was rocked with the tragedy in Japan, and I whined about turning 29... it hit me hard that we had not been able to get pregnant... little did I know we would get our positive this month. My mom made a beautiful birthday cake too!

This was a rough month... I was super sick from the pregnancy and didn't blog much, but we did manage to re-do our master bathroom with lots of help from my mom. And bestie took me for yogurt tap like 36 times... she wanted to make sure I was feeding the baby. :)

We quietly celebrated my first "baby in the belly mother's day" and Celebrated Chris's birthday a couple days early with a month-end trip to visit awesome friends in St. Pete.

Our hearts were bursting with excitement when we shared the news of our long-awaited pregnancy. Cole spent a week with Uncle Daryl & Aunt Shanna, baby Sawyer was born, and my sweet baby Jackson turned 3
I can't believe how fast time flys.

We found out baby bear was a BOY! Celebrated bestie turning 30 with 30 things I love about her, and celebrated the hubs getting accepted into his masters program. My dad built us a kitchen island using some plans from ana white and we completely re-did our office in anticipation of re-doing the baby's room.

We started picking paint colors for the baby's room, and had our back yard fenced in.
I ate 7 boxes of Lucky Charms, and the hubs put the baby's crib together!

Always a special month... the start of college football and we celebrated 2 blissful years of marriage. I love this man more and more everyday. We took a spontaneous trip to Madison for the weekend, announced our baby's name, and we celebrated baby Durham with his first baby shower!

The hubs and I spent some wonderful time together in the north Georgia mountains. We called it our "babymoon" as we celebrated our last few weeks as a family of 2. 
We took our maternity photos, and celebrated Halloween!

As I waddled through weeks 34-38 of our pregnancy there was not too much going on here but work and the nursery reveal and some Thanksgiving wishes.

by far our busiest month... Our world was rocked when Durham was born on December 1st. (birth story here) We spend the next 4 weeks celebrating Christmas with friends/family, enjoying our tree, and decorating our annual gingerbread house.

2011 was a year of blessings for us... we know it would be impossible to count every one, but we are so thankful. Thankful for love, for family, for forgiveness, for friends, and our biggest blessing- our sweet baby.

Happy New Year to you & yours... 
be safe and we'll see you in 2012!
