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.)
I eventually recovered from the stomach ailment I contracted in Mexico.
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.
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!
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.
Jason and I were promoted at our respective places of employment.
I (along with everyone else who likes NPR) got hooked on the Serial podcast.
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 set a goal of cooking one new thing a week and have stuck with it so far.
Attended Emily and Brandon’s beautiful DC wedding.
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.
We watched a lot of Kentucky basketball. Sorry, BYU.
We both got sick and spent a day sprawled on the couch watching HGTV.
Jason headed out of town on a business trip. Barring unforeseen travel difficulties, we will be reunited today!
