Year 26

Year 26 (April of 2006 to April of 2007)

Year 26 was very exciting, as I spent most of it planning our destination wedding in Mexico, but it was not a very good year for my grandparents as their health really started to decline. Dad had to sell their house and move them to a nursing home, and Grandma had several bouts with a recurring knee infection.

After we decided (*hee hee) to get married & moved forward with the wedding planning, H moved in with me around May.

My younger cousin was married in Austin in June. Unfortunately, that didn't even last until Thanksgiving.

Dad & Company rent a house every summer down at Galveston, so we went down and spent a night with them and the kids.

In June, we went on a scouting trip to Puerto Vallarta to do wedding planning.

We were "officially" engaged in August, although I'd been planning the wedding for months ;)

In September, Stephanie came to down for a visit and we tore up downtown Houston.

In October, we went out to California for my friends wedding. We took our engagement pictures, toured vineyards and drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur.

Spent lots of time counseling with parents, planning the wedding, firing photographers, organizing travel for our guests & being single mindedly obsessed about everything wedding.

In November, H bought his first big splurge purchase & invested in a big 'ol plasma TV.
And we got satellite.
And our life was never the same again.

We also went camping again in November, this time to Brazos Bend State Park- the last trip for a very long time :(

We hung out with some family friends & H's mom for New Years.

Ran & finished the Houston marathon again this year! I think it was Mickey's last year to make it down as a spotting device.

Went to Minneapolis in January to visit a bunch of girlfriends.

January, I had a Mexican themed bridal shower.

In February we were married, we were married atop a hill overlooking downtown & the bay in Puerto Vallarta with only our closest friends and family.

As a condition of marriage, I gave up my bright pink bedroom & H worked on painting the bedroom a more manly color. We then moved onto the living/dining room & kitchen areas for paint & decorating.

In April, the Rockets went to the play-off's and we went to a few game with friends.
