Top 13 Moments of 2013!

Wow.....I just skimmed through all my blog posts from this past year and man it was a crazy, busy, whirlwind of a year. I'd have to say it goes down in the book as the best year yet! I really love writing these posts because it is great to be able to look back to the past year and relish in all my favorite memories and moments.

#13. I spent a weekend in Dallas, TX with all of my favorite girlfriends (minus a few that didn't make it), my mom, and my aunt celebrating my bachelorette party. Let's just say it was a little bit crazy and I have so many stories to tell from it.

#12. I traveled to Las Vegas with all of my most favorite friends from high school to celebrate Jerry & Katelyn's wedding weekend. It was the absolute best weekend ever. It was so great to spend quality time with all my favorite friends right before I got married and moved off.

#11. I had the honor of standing by three of my best friend's sides on their wedding days. They were all three absolutely beautiful weddings. All three of them brought tears to my eyes as I watched the way each couple loved each other differently. There's nothing quite like standing by your dearest friend's side and watching her face beam with joy when she sees her husband.
 Rachel's wedding in Nashville, TN.
Alli's wedding in Oklahoma.
 Caitlin's wedding in Arkansas.

2013 was the year of weddings. We also traveled to Houston, TX to attend the wedding of a very dear family friend. I had the privilege of doing hair for all the bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and the bride. It was a beautiful, fun wedding.

#10. On June 29, 2013, I married my favorite person in the entire world and it was the best day of my life and the best decision I've ever made.

#9. My new husband and I spent a week in beautiful Cancun and soaked up every minute together. It was the neatest thing to experience with Aaron since it was his first time to fly and see the ocean. We loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back.

#8. I packed up my belongings and moved 7 hours away from all my family and friends. It was extremely exciting and scary all at the same time.
#7. I got a new job that I really enjoy, met a lot of new wonderful people, and began exploring this neat little town. During my explorations, I stumbled upon many interesting things that you can't find in the city.
#6. I completed numerous house projects in hopes of making our house a warm, inviting home.
#5. We really enjoyed welcoming visitors into our little home. Those visitors include my Aunt Jan, my grandpa, mom, and dad and Aaron's whole family. Now, we are just waiting on you friends!

#4. I traveled to Tennessee more in 2013 than I have in my entire life. We took a short road trip to Memphis with my parents and I took a short road trip to Nashville to stay with my friend. They were both fun little getaways.

#3. 2013 was also the year of babies and pregnancies. It's really crazy how many people I know that had babies this year and it's even crazier how many of my friends are pregnant. I can think of 5 off the top of my head that are pregnant right now. I can't wait to love on all those babies.
Meeting Emery Ryan for the first time. Such a sweet, tiny little thing.
 Meeting Tucker Keith for the first time. He was perfect.
And I haven't gotten to meet this one yet, but my cousin Bo & his wife, Cassidy just welcomed Bentley Josiah on Dec. 27th. Can't wait to meet him.
#2. We survived our first snow storm in Arkansas and man was it a pretty snow. Probably the prettiest snow I've seen, besides in Colorado of course. We enjoyed playing with Samson in it and taking lots of pictures.
#1. My most favorite moments from 2013 are the little moments spent with my two favorite boys. I can't explain how wonderful this year has been because I get to wake up next to these two everyday. I have waited a long time for that and it's more fun than I could have ever imagined. They are pretty darn cute together.

 I'm looking forward to 2014 and all that it holds for us. Wishing you all a Happy New Year!!
