I didn’t realize how much my life has changed this year until I started looking at all of my pictures from the past 12 months and seeing how much my hairstyle has evolved! For reals.
Okay joking aside, so much has happened this year! We went from one car to two, I went from long hair to short, dropped a few pounds, moved from apartment living to home ownership, found out I’m going to be an aunt this next year (!), added a dog to our family, finally met Chris’ family, among many other things!!!! It all went by so fast too; it seems to do that when you get older
So here’s some pictures to take you through my years past. (I kind of stole this idea from a bunch of people, so thank you, internet dwellers, for your brilliant ideas!)
Chris’ got a new car!
Miss Kitty got fixed 😦
Pepto-colored table cute again!
First time hiking up in the Kern Canyon. (Um what have I been doing the past 10 years not going there?)
First quad trip up at Shaver Lake.
First beach trip of the year. Pismo Beach.
Garbage got chopped 😦
*Apparently I hated my crappy camera this month-only 6 pictures that month!!!
We spent the 4th of July at Shaver Lake.
And on said trip, had an incident with the dog falling in the lake and not wanting to do much but act like dead weight.
Then I turned 23.
Then we visited my little cousins in Manhattan Beach.
We’d be on the home search for over a couple of months, this was the one that accepted our offer.
So, we started packing!
At the Lake again; Chris decided it was smart to grab a snake out of a stream!
Unstuffing our LoveSac Who does that? Um, apparently people with cats who peed on it.
On our moving day, we first painted the entire living area & office.
Then we moved our furniture in 🙂
(aka crafty month)
I painted some dressers black.
I made a fall wreath.
We got a new front door! Yeeeee!
I made some pumpkin & apples votive holders.
…and made some pillows.
Oh, and I did some baking!
We adopted our dog, and named her Tundra.
Then we took her up to Shaver.
Then we celebrated Thanksgiving
We went to Michigan to meet the fam.
I hosted my first party, full of wonderful lady bloggers 🙂
And we had a white Christmas.
Here’s to many new memories in 2009!
