What a Year!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Have been really bad about blogging.  Not that It really matters to anyone other than me and my Mighty 8.  Mighty 8 is what I just made up  call my 8 followers. They are pretty much made up of friends who blog and know how awesome it feels to see the number of followers go up, and friends who don't want to hear me complain about no one following me.  They'd be like..."What do you mean you don't have followers?" and Id be like, "I don't". Then again they'd be like," but you have me and 7 others, that's totally a big following." Then id feel better and be all, I should quit my job and become a professional blogger. Then they'd be all," umm you only have 8 followers and blog once a month so please dont." I wouldnt become a professional blogger, but I would feel better, and I still wouldn't use proper grammar and punctuation.  Anyway, I guess like all the other bloggers I should recap my year.  This has been a pretty great year, lets start at the beginning.
 In April we moved into our first place together. We love it so much!!! So does Budee, he likes the massive yard and staring out the front window ready to bark at any intruders, or brids, or leaves.  He pretty much just likes barking.
           For the spring we did our usual, we worked and worked.  I continued going to school changing my major and working my butt off.  We took some fun trips to Charles Town to see the Perkins family and to Richmond to see Laurie, Jenny and Kenny. 
           Not much really happened in the spring. We did alot of grilling and then some more grilling. Chad perfected his steak-ing and we had an awesome time having our own place.
           In the summer Alecia came up to visit and we had a 4th of July party. Our first party at the house.  It was really fun and I cant wait till next year!!
           We celebrated Birthdays, new babies and different milestones.  I was working at Waldenbooks in the mall a job that I loved and people I LOVED working with, and then we found out the store was closing :( That made the summer and fall a little stressful and stinky.  I got a new part time job that I enjoy and that works awesome with my school schedule!  Laurie come to visit in August which was BOMB!  We love having people come visit us.
            Next in October we got our new puppy Ellee.  Oh lord.  She is a wild wild woman but shes pretty awesome.  Well shes getting a little awesomish (yeah that's a word so shut it).  When people asked me how I

liked my new puppy, my reaction was that she was a jerk and I didn't care much for her. Its true. I think im the only person in the world who doesn't care for puppies other than playing with them in the pet store.  But I have to admit she is getting better, shes less bitey and a little more snugly. I like the snugs. Im a snug- a- holic. 

To end the awesome year, Chad and I got engaged!!!  He asked me on Christmas Eve, at his sisters in front of everyone. :)  So yay for that. To all my family that is upset that you found out on facebook, I'm so sorry, my phone was dead and I cant use my cell at my house because I don't have service. I also have a house phone with no long distance. So I love you all and im sorry I couldn't call you individually!!!!  SO that's my recap of this awesome year. Next year we have so much to look forward to.  Baby showers, bridal showers, Weddings, new babies, first birthdays, my last year of school more parties and more fun!!  So cheers to an awesome 2011 and an even better 2012!!!
