See Ya Later 2008!

We're having a New Year's Party over at the Roost. Head on over to check out other people's walk through the past year.

We started off 2008 by impulsively painting our living room green. Not the green I had planned on it, but hey, it works!
Next up was my birthday. Hubby planned a day of surprised that included my sister and our friend from Texas. My gift was a heart shaped locket with my married monogram on it.

The highlight of the year was our wedding! Here are Hubby and I both grinning like maniacs because we just couldn't keep the joy inside.

We got tickets to a Detroit Tiger's game as a wedding present, so Hubby had to make an orange and blue sombraro to wear the game. We had a blast!

In July I got first place and set a course record in the Athena division of a local 5k run. I was so excited!

Here we are at Hubby's State Championship Bump n Race. He literally raced the wheels right off the car!
Top Row: Sister Emily, Me, Sister Hannah. Bottom Row: Great Grandma and Grandma. This picture sums up the amount of time and energy I put into creating better bonds in our family.
Wine tasting with friends. This was a big deal for me because I'm not super social around people I don't know well and these are Hubby's friends. But I got along with them very well (maybe it was the wine) and now we consider ourselves close friends.
We adopted a new cat into our family. Here is Red peeking in the window, watching me cook.

Jon, Me and Hubby around the Christmas Tree. Jon is Hubby's BFF and lived with us for 2 months until he moved to Canada.

lol! my first blog of the year "seperated at birth"...

i could have traded you my dress for your wedding dress and saved myself a bundle! ;)

your house guest is gone? bet you miss him helping out in the kitchen.

glad that you get along well with the hubs friends. mr. right moved down here just a couple months before we met, so he doesn't have a lot of friends. he's mostly just taking my friend's husbands as his friends. :) works for me b/c i know we all get along!

I painted a room that same green once. Greens are sneaky! Much brighter than they appear on that little card!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...'re a newlywed. The wedding pic alone is sweet enough--and the rest are just as perfect :)

The green looks great!

Lynette said...
