Befriend, Favor, Travel

#5 Befriend - Did you meet any new friends this year? How did they impact your 2011?

While I did not meet any new friends that impacted my year, the friendships that I already have made the biggest impact on 2011.  My closest friends (and bridesmaids) stuck it out through a 2 year engagement and were there to organize and celebrate my amazing bridal shower, bachelorette party and the big day.  It means even more to me because 3 out of 4 do not live close but continued to travel to be there for me.  I cherish those friendships and know that my year would not have been the same without them!

I see two prompts for Day 6, so I'll do both  #6 Favor - What was your favorite month of 2011? Why did it beat out all 11 other months?

Well this was an easy one - April took the top spot in terms of favorite month of 2011.  Our wedding is a day (well, really weekend) that I will never forget!

#6 Travel - Where did you travel this year? What was your favorite part? If you didn't get to travel, where do you want to go next year?

This year we tried to cut back on the travel to save for the wedding, but it turns out I was fortunate to make it out of the DFW area couple of times.  

Right before the wedding I spent the weekend in NOLA with a bunch of bees which was such a fun trip!  After the wedding we spent our minimoon in San Antonio and then headed to Mexico for our honeymoon in May.  I headed to the Jersey Shore in June for Corinne's bachelorette weekend and in August we were in Philly for Corinne's wedding and then spent about 24 hours in Atlantic City for my birthday.  Next year I'm looking forward to celebrating our anniversary a little early on our family cruise in April.

This month I'm participating in WEverb11, you can find out more info here. Thanks to Kim for setting it up!.


  1. This looks like fun...you trip to Mexico looks so fun!

  2. What good friends! And I'm totally picking our wedding month as my favorite month this year. I think we'd get in trouble with our guys if we picked anything else! :)

  3. i /love/ your wedding pic @ the top of the post :) such beautiful colors and smiles!

  4. Very true! It'll be interesting to do this next year when I probably won't have such a huge life event happen like a wedding.

  5. Your wedding photos are GORGEOUS!
