April's Past

It is that time of month again. I find I am really enjoying these posts. It is a fun way for me to look back at all my pictures and remember all the fun times we had. April is my birthday month so there will be a lot of birthday celebrations going on. Also, its in the middle of a semester so there was not a whole lot else going on in my months while I was in school.

April 2009
-School was busy busy.
-I celebrated my 19th birthday. These pictures make both of us look like babies.

April 2010
-I celebrated my 20th birthday. Which was also Good Friday that year. That is the interesting part of having a spring birthday. Note Richard's giant beard. Ha! And my mom with her puppy Lacey that she loved so much.

April 2011
-We finally  closed on our house after waiting three months just to hear if our offer was accepted. Remember that from my January post?
-I moved in with my dad for about a month before our house was ready to be moved into.
-I celebrated my 21st birthday on a Saturday without my Husband (then fiance). Richard had a research conference that he had to go to in New York and was not able to celebrate my birthday with me. So instead I invited friends and family to come out to celebrate. And as tradition in my family, when someone cannot attend an important event, you bring them along on a stick. So we had Richard on a stick and had a little too much fun with that one.
-Once Richard got back, he took me to a nice Italian restaurant (of course). After dinner, I went to the bathroom and came back out and noticed a couple tables looking at me. Then the waitress brought out my dessert that said happy birthday. Come to find out that our waitress had brought it out while I was in the bathroom and decided to try again once I got back.

-We went with some friends to Toby Keith's I love This Bar & Grill after my birthday since Richard was not able to go to the bar with us originally.

April 2012
-I finally took my Actuary exam after four months of studying for 6+ hours everyday. All that hard worked paid off because I passed!
-I started working at a preschool on top of my other two jobs. It was for about a month covering someone's maternity leave. So at the point, every Tuesday and Thursday I would work from 7 in the morning to 7 at night going from one job to the next without a break. It was rough, but totally worth it.
-I found out that I was going to be an aunt! I started bawling when I found out because I knew that we were moving and I would not be there when the baby made his/her appearance. We told our extended family at Easter where each of us wore a name tag saying "Auntie" or "Grandpa". Our family was really excited for my sister and I remember my dad with three of his sisters standing in a circle and all of them were crying. I love my family.
-I celebrated my 22nd birthday and we ordered the same cake from our wedding in smaller form because it was so delicious. Yum. Wish I could have some right now.
-We hung out with our friends to celebrate all the April birthdays in our group of friends.

April 2013 is here.

Whew that was a long one. So many fun times here and I love being able to write about it.
