Aquarium and Saying Goodbye to 2011

December 28, 2011

We took a trip to the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores for the day and hand a blast.  This is just one of the many pictures we took. 🙂  G has fun entertaining D, but I think D likes to make us laugh just as much.  D’s eyes were wide open the whole time we were there and couldn’t get enough of each tank.  For me, the sea turtles and sea otters are my favs.  They are just so graceful and beautiful. I’ve always loved the ocean, not sure why, but it is one of the things I can not live without.  I’m slowly learning there may be other things I can not live without. 🙂

Tomorrow is the last day of 2011.  So much has happened this year…….so many great and wonderful things.  I’m so thankful for where I am in my life….such a short time ago, I wouldn’t have been able to say that, but I can honestly say that I’ve grown even more than I thought I ever could have through my life experiences.  Hopefully, I’m done for a bit learning the BIG stuff. lol  I’m looking forward to an exciting 2012.  I’m getting it started off right with a trip to FL with G starting Jan 2-8th 🙂

December 2011

So much to be thankful for, continuously.  I have great people in my life that care about me and would do anything for me. It’s nice to have people that reciprocate what I give out daily.  Everyone has their faults of course, but if you have good healthy people in your life……that’s the basis that will underline everything.

This past weekend was a great one! Friday night D and I hung out on his last night before he went to his dad’s for a week to celebrate Christmas.  Saturday was D’s b-day party at Dream Sports.  He had a good turn out: Hunter M, Cooper M, Logan B, Zach and Mason H, Kenny, and family.  G also came and that was a comfort to me.  Mom and Amy kept him company when I was needed elsewhere. After the party, I went back to my house with G and we changed clothes for the Christmas Party with Derek and Kristy.  We had so much fun eating, talking, and dancing.  Sunday was filled with Christmas spirit as I helped G’s friend Erin take Santa pictures at the Club. All the kids were so cute in their outfits.  Had a wonderful lunch.  I took about a 1.5 hour nap that I guess I really needed because it was like I just close and opened my eyes.  LOL

Oh my and how could I forget my early birthday present.  Gil gave me the most beautiful necklace I have ever seen.  It’s not something I would have bought for myself and I really really LOVE it.  I was in shock for a little bit I think because no one has bought jewelry for me before and the fact that it was so nice. 🙂  I haven’t even taken it off yet.  It means so much to me and it’s like having him with me even when he’s not physically with me.  I didn’t see him coming, but I’m glad he found me.
