2012....2013. where has the time gone??

Life has been wonderful...and CRAZY! We have had a great start to 2013..and I can't believe we are finished with the first week of February. Where to begin??

We had a friend of ours take some pictures of our little family so Ralphy would be part of the family pictures 

Thanksgiving was wonderful. I cooked my first turkey, a 22 lb'r nonetheless..and we had ONE meals worth of leftovers from work. I felt very accomplished and prepared for many more Thanksgivings to come.

We celebrated our FIRST anniversary. I can't believe it has been a year already. We have grown so much as a couple, and I definitely have grown so much as an individual. I am so grateful for a wonderful loving and patient husband. We celebrated by going to Wolfgang Puck's 560 (which is part of the Dallas skyline) and to see the Broadway production of Jekyll and Hyde. We loved every minute of it!

Early December we drove to Kansas City to have an early Christmas with my parents. We took Greg for some delicious Zarda BBQ and had a grand ol' time spending quality time together. I then went back a week later to spend some time with all the family, as Jamie and her family flew into KC for Christmas.

I flew back the night of the 23rd, worked Christmas Eve, and was surprisingly called off on Christmas Day. Greg, Ralphy, and I started the day opening presents and spent it relaxing and enjoying each others company. Greg and Ralphy got me a Cuisinart 14-cup Food Processor and family picture framed with The Family:  A Proclamation to the World. Greg got some new work clothes and Ralphy got some new treats and toys.

We have a new addition to the family. We purchased a Honda Insight the end of December...we still have not named the car...suggestions are welcome.

The biggest news of the last little while is Greg got a promotion at work! He was promoted to a SSS at Bank of America, and just 2 days ago was promoted to a Banker. He is also going to school full-time so his schedule is a little nutty. 

We also moved out of our first married home and moved into our new house. We are renting a cute little cottage and the 3 of us are loving being in a house. We now have a guest bedroom and are welcoming any visitors!
