2012 In Review

What would the end of the year be without the obligatory "What has happened in the past year" post? I know, I know, you see these from just about everybody and are by now bored with them, but 2012 was a pretty great year, and here is why:

On the 15th-18th I was taken on an awesome bachelor party to Las Vegas by 8 of my closest friends, designed and implemented by Brent East (@oubrent). Memorable trip events:

  • Aria Sky Suites (and all the fine amenities that came with)
  • Going 9-0 on Thursday the 15th 
  • Consuming the best steak I've ever had on Friday the 16th at Estiatorio Milos in The Cosmopolitan
  • Brent's epic Planet Hollywood blackjack hand
  • Blue Man Group

Vegas is the best.

There really isn't much to say about April.
I'm just kidding of course (sorry honey). On April 13, 2012 I had the privilege of marrying the love of my life, Elyse Richardson.


The day was memorable not only for the ceremony itself, but also the tornado that came rolling through Norman just an hour before. I couldn't have planned it better myself.

We were blessed to get to spend the 16th-22nd on our honeymoon in Maui. There are no words to describe how incredible this island is.

The Thunder made a phenomenal run to the NBA Finals after winning the Western Conference title. It was so awesome getting to be a part of this.

On Wednesday the 5th Elyse and I bought our first home. After personally living in Norman for just over 10 years I said goodbye to "the barn" in southeast Norman as we moved closer to downtown OKC, choosing a nice neighborhood in Moore.

The year has come to a close nicely by getting to spend our first married Christmas together in our new home.

While 2012 was a banner year in many ways, I really am looking forward to what's to come in 2013.

Stay tuned....
