The Big 12 of 2012


Adam and I were talking about this last year and how crazy it has been. Last week we spent the holidays in California with his family and quite a few conversations with, "I can't believe it has been a year since we met you Deidre..." or "Isn't it crazy last year when you visited for New Years you were just dating and now you are married?" Well... Yeah. It is crazy. It has been a crazy year full of adventure and excitement. So now... we bring to you...


12. A day at Disneyland on one of the busiest days of the year. How the heck were we supposed to know they would hit theme park capacity at noon!?

11. We had our first of many weeks apart and Skype dates... pageantry and baseball splits up a couple more than we care for, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

10. Summer nights filled with fireworks, softball, snow cones, and mini golf.

9. Deidre learned all about baseball. And actually loves it.

8. Adam learned all about pageants... and thinks that are crazy!

7. The blog hit 500 followers. Humbling. And appreciated.

6. Deidre placed top 10 at Miss Idaho, won the community service award, and the Spirit of Miss Idaho. And officially retired from pageants.

5. Cruise. Cruise, cruise, cruise. We loved it. We want to go back. ASAP.

4. Adam spent last season as the Saturday starter for the BYU Baseball team and in November was announced the closer for the 2013 season.

3. Engaged. Simple as that. His and hers stories to match.

2. Our first apartment. Together. Which means. No more honor code hour for one of to walk home across the parking lot at midnight.

1. The biggest and best moment of 2012... well that is easy. Marriage. On August 16th we entered the Salt Lake Temple to be sealed for time and all eternity. And we are happily married. And in love forever.

All in all we had a great year. We went from dating, to engaged, to married, traveled around, had adventures, ate great treats and foods, and so much more. What did you do in 2012? What are you top moments?
