looking back on 2010

Just wanted to look back on 2010 with a few pictures...this is all blogger would let me upload, unfortunate, since there isn't even a wedding picture on here...but it has been acting really weird for me lately, but what can you do... Anyways I know I am a little late on this, but it has been a busy start to the new year 2011 for us, so enjoy!

In may my sweet mom got the teacher of the year award at the middle school she teaches at here in Abilene. Each elementary, middle school, and high school has one teacher that receives the teacher of the year award and she was awarded it for Craig Middle School!
Our awesome honeymoon cruise at the end of March for 7 days in the Carribean to Jamaica, Grand Cayman Islands, and Cozumel, Mexico. It was so wonderful and we cannot wait to go on another sometime in the near future.

John Mayer Concert in March before our wedding, it was like my bachelorette party, but WAY BETTER, my mom, monica, sister, cousin rachel, & I all went to see John Mayer in houston after the weekend of my bridal shower in Beaumont, to say it was AMAZING does not even cut it!
