|It has been a truly incredible 2011 and filled with so many different emotions. Wanted to do a quick post of some of the highlights, and what I think about when I look back at the past year. Enjoy. :)|
|January 1, 2011 - The Fiesta Bowl w/ Kyle's brother and his wife to watch OU. Boomer!|
|February 7, 2011 - Super Bowl. Green Bay Packers are #1. Go Pack Go!|
|March 31, 2011 - Mini-Hanson concert/Radio promo in Palm Springs with Michelle and Kyle.|
|April 2011 - My husband (far left) and his Marines the day they deployed to Afghanistan.|
|Spring 2011 - The husbands left and we started hiking to keep busy.|
|May 13-15, 2011 - Met some of the most amazing people in Tulsa, Oklahoma |
for a members-only Hanson event.
Bonded by Hanson. Family for life.
June 2011 - Filmed a vlog with my best friend, Vincenzo, while eating German snacks.
July 3, 2011 - The 4th of July NOIZE Party
Glow sticks. Glitter. Girl Talk. Red Bull.
If you weren't there, you wouldn't believe the stories.
|Summer 2011 - Skype dates with the husband were always treasured.|
Even thousands of miles away he knew how to make me laugh.
|July 10, 2011 - Ran my first half marathon, The Summerfest Rock n Sole in Milwaukee, WI. Between the poor race planning and the weather, it was a horrible experience but I survived!|
|Late July 2011 - This sums up Stephanie and I's caffeine fueled road trip from Wisconsin to California.|
|August 5, 2011 - Celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary alone. |
... the life of a military wife.
|August 2011 - Took my sister to DisneyLand for the first (and second and third) time.|
|August 21, 2011 - Ran my second half marathon (with a 30+ minute PR) with my little sister at the finish line.|
This was my first race having family at the race to cheer me on. Felt incredible.
|October 2011 - HOMECOMING! After 7 months, he's home.|
|November 21, 2011 - United Stated Marine Corps Birthday Ball|
As the year draws to a close, I also want to reflect on the loss of five men from our Darkside 3/4 Marine Corps Family while on their most recent deployment to Afghanistan. May these men never be forgotten, and their ultimate service to our country always be remembered.
