In other big new, perhaps the biggest news, last december I proposed to liyah, and she said yes! Our wedding August 17th in Livingston. We are registered, we have the place locked down, and now we are digging into the meat of wedding planning.
Here is the quick and dirty of the important things from 2012
Liyah was promoted to manger at Joann's and seems to be enjoying her new job, most of the time. I know she is enjoying the pay raise!
I spent the summer working in Oklahoma at a truss plant/lumber yard. It was fun and very hot
We drove down to see old faithfull
I bought some new guns
I bought liyah a 1000 dollar subaru (4cyl, 5speed standard vs her old v8 4 speed auto way better mpg), and she gave her dad her truck
I got a new truck (6cyl 5speed vs a V8 auto. Not night and day but still better)
Last but not least, Liyah and I drove our beater subaru 3000 miles to California! We went to reno, Yosemite, Sequoia, Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam, Zion and Salt Lake City. We brought our camping gear and camped when ever we could get a spot and slept in the back of the car when we couldn’t. You are going to hear a lot more about this because we took a whole grip of pictures and I’ll write up a few posts covering the trip and sharing the photos. I'll leave you with a little teaser of the coming California posts.
