2011 - the past half a year

Here is a very watered-down version of the past 6-7 months ....

Sold my 1995 Toyota Camry to Jeff's sister, Katie, and bought a 2005 Toyota Camry.

Drove all of my siblings, plus Melissa's husband John, to a family reunion in Idaho. It was good to see those who were there.

Ran my first 5k ever with my sister Rebecca. Ran with her and finished in 41:33.

Jeff's car was having problems so we bought another vehicle... a 2001 Lexus SUV. Good thing we had savings to put some money down on these 2 vehicles so monthly payments wouldn't be as much.

Ran my 2nd 5k with Rebecca and for the 2nd time, I wanted to see how fast I could finish a 5k. I finished in 38:22 (Rebecca finished in 40:20).

Camping trip in the Uintahs, which a lot of Jeff's extended family does every year.

My birthday! I had a really fun birthday, complete with dinner at Ruby River, followed by a Josh Groban concert that I LOVED!

The end of the month was a new semester, which was very difficult at times!

Almost nothing but school and work

Jeff's sister, Katie, got married! (on 11-11-11) :)

After hard work, Jeff and I finally finished the semester with A's in each of our 2 classes. :)

Had a fun Christmas! Jeff and I opened presents to each other, he cooked me a nice breakfast, we went over to his parents' house for a while, then went to their church meeting at 1:00, which was a little over an hour, then we went to Jeff's grandpa's for a little bit, then we spent the rest of the evening/night with my family.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but there's a summary of the past 6 months! It's been a hard year, but we've also been blessed so many ways! I'm looking forward to 2012! My sister Rebecca and I were chosen to go on a scanning business trip to Massachusetts and we'll go in February, I think. I also have a eating better/getting more sleep/exercising New Year's resolution for 2012. This will be THE year I will finally lose the weight I want (I'm a little sick of losing weight, then gaining some back... I want to lose it and keep it off!). I am also going to be more prepared for any 5k's I do this year.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun New Year's!
