This post is a wee bit late but it's better late than never right?? This is my year review for 2011 and since I was MIA for half the year maybe some of it will be sort of exciting?!?! Maybe??? We had a super exciting year with so many changes and full of blessings and I'm happy to finally share the high points with y'all.
We got snow several days of unexpected snow in Birmingham. That meant days off from work and lots of hang out and cuddly time.
We threw a baby shower for Anna and Lucy Kate!
Lucy Kate Rucker made her grand debut into the world on February 17.
All of my best friends from home (minus new mommy Anna) made a weekend trip to Birmingham and what a wild and fun weekend it was.
Megan, Emily, and I went to our favorite cupcake bakery in Birmingham and did Cakes and Cocktails. We got to drink wine and learn different decorating tips for cakes. The best part about the night was getting to take our yummy creations home!
Jessica, one of my lifelong friends got engaged!!
I finished up my year long externship and made it official by getting a JOB.
I traveled to Chicago for a massive Audiology convention and spent one last hoorah with the girls in my class.
Ben and I took a awesome vacation to Key West.
I graduated from Southern MIss and officially became Lindsey Piper, AuD.
We moved to Memphis. As happy and excited as we were for our what God had waiting for us in Memphis, we were so sad to leave Birmingham and our great friends, Patrick and Megan.
Ben did a complete 180 and changed careers. He left the newspaper world and began a career at a Budweiser distributorship in north Mississippi.
I started my job! The first week or so was a total blur and super overwhelming but after learning the reins of the practice, I feel right at home and love all the opportunities and challenges it brings my way.
We traveled to Pickwick to witness the marriage of Jonathan and Amy.
We celebrated Ben's 27th birthday
Celebrated the 4th of July at the home of Ben's boss. It is never a disappointment and this year myself and another wife were runners-up in the Washers tournament. Pretty legit.
I joined a bunco group. We meet the third weekend of the month. We have dinner, talk, maybe play some bunco, and talk. Oh, and there are always awesome prizes. My host month is February, it's coming soon, no pressure to find ridiculously awesome prizes.
Took a trip to Birmingham. We bought a new kitchen table and had a tire blow out on the way home. It's usually a 3 hour drive from Birmingham to Memphis but I believe this trip took us 7+ hours thanks to there only being on AAA employee in the whole state of Alabama. Never a dull road trip with us.
We had a bridal shower to honor Jessica.
We got our season tickets for Ole Miss football!
The most wonderful time of the year, Ole Miss football started!! HOTTY TODDY!! While it was definitely a super disappointing season, it was still worth all the hard work and time spent planning our tent. We absolutely love and cherish our Saturdays spent in the Grove with our Ole Miss family.
We made an offer on our first house.
