26 was a pretty good year, not gonna lie. Better than the year of 25? Absolutely.
It started off with 2 of my very close friends expecting within 2 months of each other - these girls have known each other since they were like 3.
Couples trip to Gatlinburg - so fun. I wish I had more pictures, it was so beautiful. Freezing, but awesome.
We all fell in love with this little man. Oh, and this was literally taken on my birthday, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day.
Our holiday rolled around again and we went all out. Just ignore my Australia tee, it's green, ok?
I mentioned that I didn't feel like I got closure when I moved to the US because I never planned to stay. It was a really hard time for me - I used to feel complete when I was in the US, now I felt like a piece of me was missing again, or that I didn't fit in. I was unbearably lonely - I had KC and friends but something was missing. So I started a blog. I didn't blog consistently until 2014, but still. See You In A Porridge was born.
I tailgated for the first time and it was amazing. We never made it to the game, but I think we won.
We still haven't really learned that tequila is never a good idea.
Jason Aldean concert - our friends had spare tickets and it was so spontaneous and amazing. We had such a great night. My cowboy boots hadn't seen the light since 2010 and they haven't seen it since.
This little lady made her appearance. I might never be a 'real' auntie, but I feel like I am for these 2 and I love them very much.
Well, still in KY and Derby is crazy expensive.. let's do Oaks instead.
Wedding festivities! I won't lie, I did not enjoy the wedding planning process at all like at all at all, and I wouldn't go through it again if you paid me, but all the time spent with my girlfriends was amazing and awesome and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
|one of my favourite photos ever. you had to be there ;)|
My best friend & MOH planned an amazing pinterest worthy bachelorette party, complete with her best friend coming down for the festivities. She's the girl we visited over Labor Day.
And then of course, this happened
And then we had the best time everrrr in Vegas.
We jumped aboard the crazy cat family train.
And did some fall-y things.
|clearly it wasn't fall weather yet but i had new boots, so fall it was.|
Had more wine + painting fun even though we have learned a) I can't paint, and b) wine and I are not friends
I met up with mummy at Disney.
We bought our humble abode.
And I celebrated my second Christmas in winter, my second Christmas away from my family. This one was easier than the last, but certainly still hard.
Nothing a fun party can't fix!
Phew! The memory lane train has now slowed down.. at least until the end of 2014!
