More holiday recaps

December was a fun and busy month and I wanted to catch up on the rest of the fun!

There was some not fun stuff though, my wonderful grandfather passed away on Dec. 19 in Memphis.  It was peaceful and my mom, dad and grandmother were there.  A good, long life at 93 and I will forever have fond memories of him!

Other happier happenings from the past month:

Significant others dinner at Cuoco!  This was a fun dinner we did with all of the "significant others" as we call ourselves!  Nick's guy friends have a great group of girlfriends/fiances/wives so we got a group together to catch up before the holidays.  Very lucky to have these girls in my life!

Annual Christmas dinner with Meghan and Brynn at The Whale Wins.  Delcisous dinner with the girls at this fairly new restaurant and I would love to go back sometime soon!  We started this annual traidion years ago as a fun way to get together around the holidays!

Dinner with our Australian family at Spinasse!  Nick and I returned to this delicious restaurant with our bother-in-law's parents when they were visiting.  Amazing food and wine and great company!

And then this past past weekend we spent some time at my parents cabin and then hit the slopes at Crystal Mountain

And we officially ended 2012 with a yummy dinner at La Isla - a Puerto Rican restaurant in Seattle.

I think that about covers the end of the year!

Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using? I've loaded your blog in
3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider
at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
