I'm jumping on the bandwagon!
2013 was a HUGE, important, fantastic year for us. It has given us so many blessings and so much hope for the future - I can't even begin to explain. So here's a super short rendition!
- Sean and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary
- I paid off my two smallest student loans (every little bit counts!)
- Sean started his last semester of law school!
- We had a ridiculous snowfall - two storms that brought us a combined 27" in one week (and left us without power for 2 days)
- We road tripped to Des Moines to visit Lyndsey for her birthday
- We remembered Patty passing away 5 years ago
- I turned 25
- We took a vacation to Las Vegas (and enjoyed wonderful warmth while it was freezing back home!)
- I applied for (and didn't get) two promotions at work - they didn't promote anyone
- I finally found a successful way to meal plan
- I walked the March of Dimes with a great friend

- We traveled home for thanksgiving - the last time we'd get to go home before baby arrives
- We put together the nursery
- Sean and I also took our birth classes (finally)
- We celebrated Christmas Day by ourselves, which sucked. But thankfully family came in for the weekends!
- Sean got a full time, big kid job!
- We got a deep freezer for Christmas, and promptly starting filling it with frozen meals for post baby
- We hit the one month to go stage. And I packed my hospital bag.
