i wanted to do a "2011: year in review" post since i wasn't blogging the entire year and i want to be able to remember the highlights! next year will be easier, since i'll have an entire year's worth of posts to look back on

- our first month in our new (and current) home! we actually started moving in on boxing day, but who's counting.
- mini house-warming party. our guests included kari and ryan, and kate and johnny
- marked my one-year at petland
- garrick got a new work truck

- enjoyed our new home, continued setting things up just the way we liked
- bought my purple wedding shoes! and other wedding things
- purple bow tattoos
- new phone! got rid of my plan with bell (moneysucker..) and moved onto the wonderful koodo's lack-of-plan.. and still absolutely loving everything about it

- my birthday! as well as our unwarranted visit from the police.. right at 11 pm for supposedly being too loud.. even though there were only four of us inside. buuuuutt... whatever...
- our bachelor/bachelorette parties. i headed back to edmonton (and probably broke my thumb) while garrick's friends took him to vegas

- mexico! where we had our wonderful wedding surrounded by so many loving friends and family

- our legal wedding in kelowna.. it meant a lot to have kate and kari as our witnesses
