Christmas in January

Last weekend we headed down to St. Louis for a Blues' hockey game for Mom and Dad's Christmas present from all of us brats. :)

We took off early so we would have plenty of time to relax (have lunch and a few drinks) before the game.

We went to Maggie O'Brien's for lunch and had some amazing food and some good drinks.

R.J. has really small hands...or this might be the sweetest pitcher we've ever had!

Cutest couple award.

We had a lot of good drinks...

And might have had a few more...
After Maggie's we headed back to the hotel for happy hour.  Drury Inn in St. Louis is the best hotel ever...3 free drinks at happy hour and free breakfast the next morning..can't beat it!

After happy hour we headed to cheer on the Bluuuuuuuuessss!!!

The game was so exciting Mom had to take a nap half way through to rest up :)

Me and Mom celebrating the win!!

The game was pretty boring but it ended in a tie so we got to see a pretty awesome shootout! The blues ended up winning 3-2!!  It was a great weekend spent with pretty amazing people!  Best Christmas present we've ever given my parents. :)

Wildcard Weekend

Last weekend I took absolutely no pictures...well that's a lie...I took an awkward picture of Steve on my phone on Saturday night..and that was it.

We went and saw "War Horse" on Friday night.  It was pretty good.  I think I was kind of disappointed just because it was so hyped up I was expecting the greatest movie in the world. 

On Saturday we headed to Coz's for lunch and to watch some football.  We met up with Mom, Dad, and RJ and had a great time.  This weekend we're headed to a St. Louis Blues' game (the tickets we got Mom and Dad for Christmas).  It should be one amazing time! And I promise to take lots and lots of pictures! :)

Ringing in 2012

We started off New Year's weekend right..meeting Jen for a drink at the Wharf after work...

Steve can't keep his eyes open in pictures to save his life!

Which led to lots of drinks...and Mom, Dad, Janet, Mike, Adam, and Jess meeting up with us. :)  It was a great night and I wasn't too hung over the next morning to celebrate Grandma's birthday and New Year's Eve!

Saturday morning we woke up, made a bunch of food for the night, and then headed to Coz's to meet up with the fam and Grandma to celebrate her 70th birthday!! I didn't take any pictures...but here's a great picture of the best Grandma in the world! :)

....and Steve with a buzzed head...and RJ skinny mini and young.  Ahhh the good 'ole days :)

After lunch with Grandma, we headed to Mom and Dad's to ring in the New Year with family.  We decided to do a low key celebration this year since we had just gotten back from Vegas and did a lot of celebrating there.

We took some group pics....

Drank some champagne...

Drank some beer...

Maybe drank a little too much... :) 


And kissed in the new year <3

2011 has been such an incredible year for us...We moved in together, got married, Steve graduated college, we bought our first home, and have had some pretty amazing times together!  I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us!
