2011 Year Recap

Saturday, December 31, 2011

WOW! Really? 2011 has gone and went... well, at least with a day to spare. So at this time, I would like to take a quick peak at the past and reminisce on what 2011 has bLESsed us with =)

Mr. Wonderful and I bought our first house!!


We bought a house that needed A LOT of TLC... for instance, the swimming pool. So after putting in a little bit of elbow grease mix...

We now have a swimming pool for our family and friends to enjoy.

I was so excited to decorate our house for the holidays. The very first holiday we celebrated in our home was Halloween =)

I got to experience for the first time... the city of lights... Sin City. Ramon and I joined some family members to help celebrate my cousins 21st birthday.

We stayed at the very best... The Venetian. After experiencing this type of luxury, I'm not sure if I'd ever be able to stay anywhere else on the strip... it was magnificent.

We lived the life of a classy high roller

all the way down to a Rock n Roll Rock Star!

Ramon and I were surprised with a pair of Jay Z and Kanye West concert ticket, The Thrown, from my cousin Johna and my auntie Toni. We had such a blast! Ramon's all time hero is JayZ! It was awesome seeing Mr. Everything re-sight every word to every song. He was in Heaven.

And you know me... of course I had to dress the part. It just wouldn't have been right!
I was decked out in a black Yankee's hat, black blazer, white v-neck, distressed jeans, black knee boots and big ghetto gold jewelry. I FELT SO "BEYONCE" LIKE. lol

We celebrated Mr. Handsome's 29th birthday quietly. Although we didn't have any crazy plans, he was my King and his wish was my command.

For his birthday dinner, I made Lobster, T-Bone steak, garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus... a meal fit for a king =)

My 28th birthday was celebrated a day later. (Yup, we are a year and a day apart)
And I have to admit, my day went a little bit differently... We celebrated my birthday as rock stars!!

We dressed the part

Grabbed our guitars

And hit the public transportation to the City... San Francisco!!
{{all on a Wednesday night!}}

And ended up here... at lovely Castro, where I had the time of my life at!

2011 is a very memorable and powerful year for my family. My mom gave us a scare for a bit but now she is better. Like 100 times better. She is back and BETTER than ever before! Congratulations mommy on all you've accomplished thus far. You never cease to amaze me. You are my shinning star!!

I reunited with old friends from way back in middle school... 15 years ago, we use to run the school =)

One that I would like to spotlight the most would be decorating our home for Christmas. This is where my dream for so many years has come true.

Rocking out still continued this year. I attended a beautiful cocktail party that was hosted by my lovely cousin and best friend, Jennifer M.
{{I love you so much!}}

Mr. Honey and I hosted our first holiday party this year. We got a lot of family tips and holiday traditions passed down to us from my Grandmother, to include this lovely apron that was sent from her hometown, Berlin, Germany. It is an honor to have something so precious and priceless to be passed down to me. I will cherish this forever.

Christmas morning was celebrated at our house to =) We invited our immediate family to spend the night Christmas Eve to open gifts together on Christmas morning and break bread together as a family. Unfortunately, Melody and JayJay were not able to attend, but everyone else was able to celebrate with us.

We were so excited to finally use our dinning room table at it's fullest capacity.
A seating for twelve =)

Well, there ya have it. 2011 in a nut shell =) But before I let you go, I decided it was only right to leave off 2011 with 2012 New Years Resolutions

Goodbye 2011!! It's been Real! Hello 2012! Can't wait to meet ya tonight at the stroke of midnight. I'm sure you have plenty in store for us. We're ready! HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT! =)
