    2007: did my student teaching, graduated college,

    2008, bought a condo, bought a car, got a job, began planning our wedding

    2009: got married and had the vacation of a lifetime!!

     

    Wow I had some boring years in there - I hope I have some excitement ahead of me!

  • 2000: You don't even want to know where I was.  Eighth grade.  Haha...I did start my first job the summer after!  And I still work for the same non-prof (don't worry, I have a different job description now!)

    2001:  High School.  Had fun with my friends all the time, like 14 year olds normally do.  Went to homecoming with my boyfriend and regretted taking him...I hated clingly 15-year-old-boyfriends.  Ick.

    2002: Drove around with friends a lot.  That's all there was to do in our town.  School was always easy so nothing exciting there.

    2003: License.  Started talking to my friends ex (with her permission, of course!)  Was super depressed because all my friends were changing drastically and I thought about switching schools.  Oh, to have problems like this again...LOL.

    2004: Still with friends ex...until I had plans to hang out with her one night.  Before we left, she said she needed to talk to me.  Admitted she found out the night before that her current bf was cheating on her so she cheated on him with her ex (yea, that's right...)  I was so mad, I left her there and didn't talk to him for like a year.  Also started a teacher-prep class my senior year where I got to "teach" half day and taking my final HS classes the other half!

    2005:  Graduated High School and had LOTS of fun with my friends.  Met a great group of new friends who I constantly spent my time with.  Boy from above called to sincerely apologize.  I accepted and we talked a lot.  He was in the military so I visited him during Christmas break.  A week later...I met DH =)

    2006:  Dated DH, moved in together, got our first puppy (Lucy!), DH started his current job.

    2007:  Moved into a new apartment...hosted lots of parties for our friends.

    2008: Got engaged, bought our first house, drifted away from my best friend =(

    2009:  Lots of parties, Got married in Florida!  Student teaching & Graduation!

    2010: I start a new subbing job soon and DH can just enjoy life (now that I have time to!)

    Oh my...disclaimer...I feel like the youngest one so far.  I'm sure ppl on other boards would give me a "too young to be married" talk.  I never wanted to be married until I was 30 but I love DH so why wait? =)
