I figured since I didn’t really update much in 2011 I SHOULD try and do a year in review thingy – mah thingy! I need and will update this blog more in 2012 – because I need to document wedding ideas and progress and I need to actually make use of the hosting/domain costs I spend every month *dies* XD;;;;;;;;;
OK Here we go! Click below for the full post!
We bought in the new year with our first BIG party at our new town home. Friends, food and drinks…oh boy the drinks! Jody had waaay too many shots and didn’t wake up until 4pm the next day and had a hangover. We had a few friends like Emily and Haley spend the night. I tried to watch the human centipede but fell asleep before any of the weird shit.
Jody and I had our first real future talk and discussed marriage. In that tone, we did the 2011 ring race. Running around answering clues and doing a scavenger hunt all for a 15,000 engagement ring! We came in around 5th place but we had tons of fun! I was sore for about 3 days with all of that running!
A-kon. Got to meet D and sit with them (I need to recover my audio files of the interview since my pc died -_-;) The band is probably one of the nicest bands I have ever meet and they were really grateful at the many fans who came to Dallas. They kept asking me “really they came just for us? We would have came to America sooner if we knew!!!” Seriously see them if you can.
Beginning of the month I said fuck it and left my job of 5 years!!! Crazy? Perhaps but those of you who know me – knew that job was so stressful. I turned 26 and vanished for a week in New Orleans with Jody. For the first time I rested and got to really enjoy some time off. You can read more over here.
I started to work at Paper Source part time. Jody and I started Domo Box and gain 3 major clients. We learn so much within this time, clients can be fickle and some can even be hard to please. One of my favorite clients is the dental group we work with from Florida. Lovely folks! Jody and I collab on our first project together: a video for Hughes Hangar.
Dad also turned 50, we threw a nice big bash in his honor!
HALLOWEEN! The 5 of us (Kim, Kat, Jody, Emily and myself) decided on a theme – fairy tales! Kim is red riding hood – Kat is little bo peep – Emily was goldie locks – I was alice and Jody was the mad hatter! Kudos to Kim for making our costumes and Kat for baking so many treats!!
Thanksgiving and yum yum food! It was a nice peaceful time to reflect on this year and all of the changes. Jody’s biggest client can afford us anymore. We worry for a nano second but then I was offered a job as a marketing director at another real estate office while Jody gets a teaching job at a local college. We are seriously blessed!
