Long time No blog

So, we Farrs haven't blogged in a while. Kimberly was the main blogger on this site, but she set up a new blog (www.createrecovery.blogspot.com) so this one has kind of been ignored. I guess I'll have to pick up her slack and give a little update to all 3 readers as to what's been going on in our lives.

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary in August. It feels like it has been a lot short, and a lot longer than 1 year. Our cake was surprisingly awesome still after being frozen for 1 year.

I also officially finished grad school in August as well. I'm still looking at different job opportunities while waiting to take my boards. They are coming up soon, but I'm confident that I'll pass them, so hopefully I'll double my income here in the next couple of months.

My buddy Trey and I took a trip to Chicago to see the Cubs/Braves series in Wrigley Field. I have always wanted to see a game in Wrigley and we got to see 3 games. It was awesome. I thoroughly loved Chicago and can't wait to go back. Trey and I are already planning our next man trip to Boston next summer to see the Braves/Red Sox.

The week after I went to Chicago, Kimberly and I returned to Excellence Playa Mujeres for our anniversary trip. This is where we went for our honeymoon, and we loved it so much that we decided to return. We even got a great deal on the roof-top terrace, so we splurged on that again. Needless to say, the 6 days were well worth it. I had just worked 60 hours a week for the past 3 weeks and Kimberly was doing her end of the year stuff at work as well.

It's a tradition that I carry her across the threshold of our room there. We were only 4 doors down from our room from last year.

Monkey drinks like last year, only these were coconut and not pineapple

We had a rainbow on our last day

Since returning from our various vacations, life has returned to normal. I'm still working in the ER. Kimberly is still working for CCR. Hopefully we'll be putting our house on the market in March or April and move into a bigger house for when we start a family. Who knows when that will be...
