2,012 Pictures of 2012

Maybe not quite 2,012.. but I totally overdid it with the pictures. I just had such a full and happy year.
Not everything was perfect. I had moments where I felt like I was so stressed out that I'd be bald in a week. But the good far outweighs the bad.
I moved, spent an unforgettable 7 months in San Diego, grew into a better, more patient person, moved again, switched jobs 3 times, and drove way too many miles. And at the end of the year, I got the best surprise of all when my boyfriend of almost 4 years proposed to me.
Yeah, I'd say the good faaaar outweighs the bad.

A sunset trip to the beach.

Tickets for WWE Raw

A trip to the zoo.

Our first of many trips to Sea World

We spent a day at La Jolla looking for shells on the beach and experiencing Sprinkles for the first time.

We spent his birthday driving all over LA looking for a bass guitar, and ended the day at my favorite restaurant.

After much persuading, I got Ryan to take me to see Hunger Games

We spent my birthday at the Wild Animal Park

We made yet another trip to Sea World

I appreciated getting a little bit of rain in Sunny San Diego.

He came home from Jordan bearing gifts..

I made him pose for a picture at Disneyland.

We had the time of our lives at Comic Con 

We went to La Jolla and saw a seagull trying to eat a fish whole. 
Family came to visit & we showed them around San Diego. 

A little fun at Chargers fan fest

Another sunset trip to La Jolla

A goodbye cake from my boss who kinda sorta really loved my guts.

A kitten that didn't get to stay around for very long.

A weekend visit to see a Padres game and (of course) go to Disneyland

An October trip to Julian, Bates Nut Farm, and (are you really surprised?) Disneyland.

A weekend spent with Ryan's family at a Chargers game.

I had my first white Christmas with Ryan's family in Cedar...

And I was perfectly surprised when Ryan proposed with a beautiful ring!

And to finish it off, we ended our year with our 19th visit to Disneyland since April. We're not obsessed.

To be honest, I've never been happier or more excited to start a new year. In 6 months time I'll be getting married to my best friend. I can't WAIT.

Sam M said...

So you set your date for June then? That's awesome. I might be as excited for you, as you are excited. That's so great that you got to spend Christmas with his family when he asked the big question.
