2011 in Review

Happy New Year!!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in the new year.  Our weekend was spent in Jason's hometown so we could celebrate Christmas with his mom's side of the family.  I'm still behind on posting about our Christmas...maybe I will have all of those posts wrapped up by February. 

Last year was our year of change, this year was our year of stability.  We both felt more settled in our jobs, home, marriage and just felt happy.  Life is certainly not perfect, but 2011 was a great year.  Even in our busiest times, we tried to find time for each other and appreciate the little things in life.  Does this mean that 2012 will be another year of change???  Guess we will just have to wait and see!

# of funerals: 0

# of baby showers: 3 (you can tell what phase of life we are in!)

Biggest Accomplishments: Jason's two biggest accomplishments in 2011 were finishing up his term as President of MPI and winning the 2011 Sales & Marketing Award for the Travel and Lodging Association.  Several big accomplishments this year for me were losing and keeping weight off and completing my provisional year in the Junior League of Houston.  We also were able to celebrate Jason's hotel having a successful opening in the spring and a work promotion for me also this past spring.

Looking forward to...
We have tons to look forward to in 2012, but some big things that come to mind are:
