Our year in review, Insta-style!

I'm a little behind in my game, but I wanted to do this recap for you guys as well as for myself to look back on next year! It's so fun to remember what happened in a year's time, I can only imagine what will happen in 2014!

I don't have a good camera of my own, so I rely on Instagram to store my data. Follow along with me in 2014!


We said goodbye to my 2002 Chevy Cavalier as it met it's demise late one night...

Spent countless hours with girlfriends watching Sean on The Bachelor!

Took lots of walks through Winnetka Heights with my best girl by my side.


Bought my first car and accepted an interior design job!

Saw Madea face to face at the grocery store...

...and celebrated a night with the girls for Emily's going away party!


Mark and I explored our sweet little neighborhood at Hunky's burgers,

spent time with family for Easter...

...and I soaked up the fun at my new job.


I took my first (of 5) trips to Las Vegas,

had a fun girls night for Terra's bachelorette party in Houston....

...and visited New York on a business trip!


Mark and I spent time at the ballpark with Corgan, 

I had girl time at a favorite local spot, Joe T. Garcia's....

....and we went to Terra and Daniels' beautiful wedding!


Corgan had a fun bi-annual party at the Perot Museum, 

I traveled to the client's home in Las Vegas once again....

....and we surprised everyone when we bought our first home!!!


We explored the outdoors,

Had girly date nights at Urban Crust...

....and started this here blog. :)


We revamped and moved into our house, 

Packed up the apartment....

...and had lots of pool time with these people as well as others!


Mark and I made the trip to New Orleans for a friend's wedding, 

bought a new sofa...

...and met my cousin's baby, Kate!


We got sweet seats to a Cowboy's game,

Rachel visited for a week....

...and had the first annual scarf exchange!


We celebrated our first year of marriage on November 10th, 

went camping as much as we could...

....and gutted our kitchen!


We had a fun time at home during 'icemaggedon', 

bought our first REAL Christmas tree...

...and revealed our kitchen renovation!

We had a TON of fun this year and I am so excited to see what 2014 brings us. Let's hope I can recount next year on this very same blog! Thank you everyone that has been reading since July, I'm so proud of myself for making it this far! Here's to 2014!!!
