2012 Highlights Part 1


I’d like to summarize the highlights for what transpired in all 12 months of this year. Today’s the 10th day of the first month of the new year and 2012 is still so fresh to me.


In January, Triz and I had our major haircuts. We shortened our long hair and donated each of our 10 inches locks cut to Locks of Love, an organization that gives hair to those who have lost theirs from Cancer. It was a sweet accomplishments for the two of us on the very first month of the year. It was our first major haircut which was an abrupt change of length. We regretted it NOT.


In February, my bad morning sickness was at its peak. I was dealing with cravings and frustrations for not being able to have those cravings fulfilled. It was a bad first trimester but not worst. I had to carry it through it all because of our now 5 months old little Tiara. Also, a Coach purse purchase I did as a gift for myself on Valentines Day. The husband laughed at me because of the expensive price for a small bag! Lol.Β Quite a history because it was just my second Coach buy ever. The first one was in the Fall of 2008.


In March, we took a trip to Michigan to watch Ernie Haase and the Signature Sound in concert, one of our favorite gospel singers. We had an awesome time touring Andrews University, a beautiful Seventh-day Adventist institution. I had hoped for the husband to find a job there and be hired so that we could move there. I love the Berrien Springs, Michigan area. Later that month, I turned 29 years old. Yes, I have gotten old! πŸ˜€

In April, all three of us were helpers at church with the Spring Evangelism Series that we did. It was wonderful to be part of that event. I got to invite friends to attend the Bible Prophecy seminar and we three got to help in the Music ministry. No other major events except that and our friends’ weekend visit from Illinois.


In May, the most awesome event to remember was the first ever ultrasound of my 6-moth-old wombmate in 4D. We three were amazed by the scenes we looked at inside my womb. Our little Tiara was growing so beautiful in her sanctuary. It was getting warmer so we were able to do lots of outdoor hiking. My husband also helped in gifting myself with my most desired Smartcam: the Samsung WB150F which I am using until now.


In June, the highlight was our 2-week-vacation in Las Vegas. It was so fun vacationing as I entered my last trimester. The Vegas summer heat was cruel though. But we all love the outcome of that trip– the husband got to do a home makeover of his sister’s house. It was a huge help he extended to her.
