Is it time for another Frost Fiscal Year report already?! This year has flown by, and, though not a year of dramatic changes, has surely been our best yet. I can’t say I love Jason more now than the day we got married, but I think I love him more completely. I knew he was great on May 2, 2009. I just didn’t realize he was everything I would ever need in a best friend and partner. (Sometimes I still can’t believe this is our life.)
We celebrated our fifth anniversary in Mexico City!
It was easily one of the best/most fun trips we’ve taken together.
Attended Sarah and Brian’s lovely wedding in Baltimore.
I eventually recovered from the stomach ailment I contracted in Mexico.
Jason’s mom came to see us and we had a lovely–albeit humid–time together.
We took a load off at the third annual Frost-Holbein beach extravaganza.
I went to New York City to hang out with Roni.
I hosted book club, at which we discussed Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. I am proud that the book has come up at subsequent book discussions, but also a little concerned that the ladies of the ward thing I’m macabre.
I turned twenty-six and celebrated by 1. not working 2. running 6.5 miles (1/4 mile for every year) and 3. eating dinner at the Capital Grille with Jason, who had just returned from a trip the night before!
Jason became nocturnal. In his absence I walked a lot (39 miles over four Sundays), ran a lot, and went to visit the YW at Camp Misty Mount.
We had a lunch date in Georgetown whilst Jason tried to find a navy suit.
The new metro line opened, with serious positive commuting implications for me.
I went to two Nats games with work.
I stopped running so much when I started having shin problems.
Dave came to visit DC!
The three of us went to CT to see Jason’s family and, of course, attended the season-opening BYU football game at UConn.
I went to my first ever book sale.
I helped out (by which I mean I didn’t do much at all) with a baby shower for my friend Elayna.
We moved to a new apartment and it was our best/easiest move yet!
I ran my first marathon with Adam, Grant, and my Dad (and the three of us who aren’t going on a mission this year put in for the 2015 race). I can’t think about that day without smiling.
Mariel got married! I can’t think about this day without smiling either.
Jason and I camped (along with the boys) for the first time in five years.
We also spent some quality time in Payson Canyon, a.k.a. one of the most beautiful places in the world.
I spent three miserable days covered in urgent-care-worthy hives. Still no idea what I was allergic to, though my best guess is the particular blend of garam masala I used in our butter chicken.
I got released from Young Womens and called as the teacher of the then-twelve-turning-thirteen-year-old Sunday School class. Jason continued to serve as executive secretary.
We caught our first high school football game in at least eight years (probably longer). It was so fun.
Jason and I were promoted at our respective places of employment.
We Thanksgivinged in Virginia, which meant Jason got to play in the ward Turkey Bowl and I got to watch. Oh, and we cooked our first ever full-size turkey.
I (along with everyone else who likes NPR) got hooked on the Serial podcast.
We took our yearly Christmas photo.
Jason went on a very brief business trip.
We went to Connecticut to see la familia Frost, where we ate all the candy and watched all the basketball.
And we saw the in-progress Hartford Temple!
I finished my thousand running miles and 154 books for the year.
We celebrated New Year’s Eve in the usual way: with a butternut squash and games and no banging of pots and pans.
We set a goal of cooking one new thing a week and have stuck with it so far.
I went to my only Georgetown basketball game of the year.
Attended Emily and Brandon’s beautiful DC wedding.
Headed up to New York City to see the Matisse cut-outs and had a blast.
I developed The World’s Most Persistent Sinus Infection, which lasted an entire month.
Jason turned twenty-nine!
We had our first (but not last!) snow day of the year.
We spent Valentine’s Day downtown at the Portrait Gallery.
I made cream puffs for a baby shower and they were awesome.
Church was cancelled for freezing rain and we had another snow day!
Jason took another trip.
My parents came to visit us and we had a pretty great time.
We watched a lot of Kentucky basketball. Sorry, BYU.
I went for my first outdoor run of 2015 on Good Friday.
We finally met our baby niece and Adam got his mission call to Baltimore, Maryland!
We both got sick and spent a day sprawled on the couch watching HGTV.
My Grandpa Henderson passed away, so I headed out to Utah for the funeral. While there, I got to see Adam and Grant play high school tennis for the first time.
Jason headed out of town on a business trip. Barring unforeseen travel difficulties, we will be reunited today!
Happy 6th anniversary to the best man I know!
