2013 in review

What a year!

I started teaching my last semester of Advertising Media & Marketing at UNT. I met baby Ethan and Louise started pulling up!

I went to Austin for Carlie’s bachelorette party and Mike and I hosted a crawfish boil. Louise also started crawling, and my sister found out she was PREGNANT!

Lots of wedding activities – Carlie and Paul got married, I went to Napa for Lindsey’s bachelorette, and then she married Colin at the end of the month! Louise also had her first Easter.

We had a few birthday parties and went to New Orleans for Dominique & Ross’ couples shower! Louise also started walking!

Louise turned one, and Dominique and Ross got married. A busy and fun month!

Mike turned 31, but other than that we laid pretty low.

Louise started day care, my mom hosted a baby shower for Liz and Katie, and my grandfather had his 75th birthday party! We also found out we were expecting baby #2!

Mike defended his dissertation, we celebrated the marriage of Susanne and Mike, and Errin, Carlie and I threw EK a prom-themed thirtieth birthday party!

We visited Grammy and Grumps in New Orleans over Labor Day and took a few trips to the Arboretum.

Our college friends the D’Englere’s came in town, we ran the Haunt Jaunt with Carlie, had our four year anniversary, visited the Arboretum for Fall Fun, found out that baby #2 was a girl, went to Michele’s Halloween party, and had our first trick-or-treating experience! Louise also had ear tubes surgery. Whew!

I flew to New York to meet my new nephew and celebrated my 30th birthday twice. We also went to New Orleans for Thanksgiving.

Louise came down with pneumonia which meant we skipped most of our holiday party plans, but I could still have our annual ladies’ lunch at Neiman Marcus and the Coppell girl’s dinner at Anamia’s. Mike graduated with his PhD from UTD, and we celebrated Christmas as a family of three!
