Miss Ella Arrives
My good friend Maryam had her first daughter, Ella, on October 7, 2012!!! Ella and I are birthday buddies. She is the most adorable, personable little girl and I love her to pieces. She is growing up so fast! Here she is in her Red Raider gear :).
Bye Bye Z and Hello Evo
While it was sad to see my little red Z go, I was happy to upgrade to a big girl car. The Z and I had some great memories together, but she started having some mechanical issues that made her unsafe on the Houston streets. After much deliberation I had to get a new ride and chose the Range Rover Evoque! It's a 2-door SUV, so it's a good transition from the Z to a bigger car.
New Years in Key West
What a fun trip! My friend Kirsten and her boyfriend had plans to spend New Years in Key West, Florida. She asked if we'd like to join them, and Bo and I hopped on a plane to ring in the new year Island style.
Birthdays and Anniversaries
This year Bo celebrated his 30th and Denali her 5th! Bo and I officially reached the 2-year milestone in March!
Bo's Hometown, Alexandria, VA
After 2 years of dating I guess it was about time that I visit Bo's hometown in Virginia. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but got to visit the national capital, see where Bo grew up, and spend quality time with Bo's mom, Bev. Bo's dad was on a walk along the Mississippi River, so he wasn't home for this particular visit.
Add another fabulous vacation to the list. This spring we visited San Jose del Cabo! It was a first for both of us but it was a very relaxing vacation in paradise!
Preakness and Ponies
Bo and I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to the Preakness, the second horse race of the triple crown. I of course got a fabulous outfit and wide brimmed hat. I even picked the winning horse to show! Such a cool experience. If you haven't been to a big horse race like this, you should add it to your bucket list.
Family Cruise to Alaska
I was so excited when my parents asked me to join them for family vacation to the Upper One... Alaska that is! It's been 5 years since I was up there, and I was definitely in need of some fresh air. It was a great cruise, and mom and I spent most of our time at the spa... We called it Spalaska. Great scenery and again another one in a lifetime trip.
Well that gets the highlights~ I'm so blessed to have such great friends and family.
