Well it has been a crazy year.
I know i haven't posted anything in a while but here is how my year has gone... Some things have happened this year that have significantly changed my life.
1. 30.... Yep that is a scary number and i turned it this year. The Dirty Flirty 30!You know growing up you think that wow 30 is so old.Everyone has been asking me "How does it feel to be 30, Do you feel older, blah blah blah" but it feels just like any other day : ) I wanted it to be a great experience so what did i do... I threw myself a Big Ass Birthday Party! We rented out the upstairs of my friends bar and had drinks then a Party Bus came & we did a little bar hopping. It was a really fun night! I was surrounded by my awesome friends so it sure made my transition to my 30's a lot easier : )
2. I think for me a big thing was telling myself one little quote "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference"I have found that i try to change or "fix" everything and sometimes it's not my problem to fix and i need to just let God handle it and i need to accept it and relax. To help remind me of this i got it tattooed on my left side. I am glad that i got it and love it : ) Here is a picture of it:
Also one of my best friends had a lil baby girl and she told me one day that they were naming her after me! I feel so privileged & honored! Her name is Elizabeth Marie. She is such a lil dolly. Now i have 2 lil babys to spoil to death : ) Here is a beautiful picture of her:
Then Andy brother & sister in-law were blessed with another lil girl as well.. Landyn Jo. Can't wait to see her grow and interact with her 2 big sisters. Its going to be a wild ride : )
So there are a few fabulous lil additions to my life that i am super excited about being a great aunt & babysitter for these lil bundles of joy : )
4. I guess my year started off a little rough to say the least. On Feb. 7, 2011 i was on my way home & hit a patch of ice and started swerving... First to the left then to the right and then i lost control slammed into a guard rail then went over the guard rail & rolled my vehicle 2 times, landing back on all 4 tires. I never blacked or passed out & remember everything. First thing i thought was where is my phone i have to call my mom. Then i realize as i try to lift my arm that my left forearm is broken (i was wearing long sleeves so i could not see any gross stuff, thank God). I just held my arm close, i also realize that i cannot see very well, everything was blurry. Well when the airbag went off the impact popped my contacts out. I was wearing my seatbelt! I then crawled over to the passenger side of the vehicle and waited, i was so scared because i couldn't get out of the car & i had went down a hill in between the 2 interstates and thought that no one would see or find me. I sat there about 5 minutes when i look out the window to see 3 blurry figures of some guys (still have no idea who they were to this day) walking towards me. They asked if i was ok i told them my arm is broke & my ankle was hurting. They said they called the police & they were on the way. Needless to say i spent the next 2 days in the hospital, had to have surgery on my arm. They put 2 plates & 13 screws into my arm. Here are a few pictures of my blazer to show you how lucky i was:
