  • Most life changing event(s) of your life in 2011? Getting pregnant, H getting a new job (woot!)

    Best book(s) you read in 2011? handmaid's tale, Game of Thrones

    Favorite movie you saw in 2011? Um lol I didnt see a lot. Probably the last Harry Potter.

    Best concert or play you saw in 2011? Stevie Nicks!!

    Any vacations you took in 2011? No really fabulous vacations - just long weekends here and there. Going to Puerto Rico in a month though!

    Any AWs from 2011? Oh hm.  Well just in general 2011 was a good year for us.  H started a fabulous new job, I hit the two year mark at mine (ie can't be fired without cause anymore haha!), I started working from home two days a week, we got pregnant, have had a healthy and relatively easy pregnancy so far, we spent a lot of time with friends and family, my brother accepted a position in Salisbury post-residency so they'll be back in the state which is awesome, and so on and so forth.  The year started out relatively crappy for various reasons and really ended up being a good year, which is always a great way to end the year!

    What are your goals for 2012? To buy a house, get through childbirth (lol), and that's about it.
