2013 Expressed By Pics

2013- a Reveiw

I posted Pictures that capture the big moments of 2013- below the description I have posted blog links - incase you want to read about the events more!


I was cast in a play, where I was a pregnant nagging wife...

But I got 104 fever opening day, was transported by ambulance to Chicago's Hopistal for a Virus and Fungal Infection....

I got out in time to celebrate my BIRTHDAY!

I turned 28 in April :-) Andrew got me 3 gifts and one of them was...

In May we performed in a play, Xanadu! Andrew was the lead & got to roller skate around stage in short-shorts! 

In May I finished Real Estate Classes and Andrew Finished his General Ed, Classes. Then June 1st was the CF walk in Hollowayville!

I had Triple Hernia Surgery in June too!

In August Andrew and I moved to the Burbs.

Moving Day!

Started Grad School (at Dominican and Work)

In September I had two Weddings ( One I was MOH in) and then we had my 10 year high school reunion and did a CF walk in Peoria!

Then I got Sick, ended up in the hospital for two weeks, withdrew from school, took med leave from work and came home on IV meds!

We have been dating for one year at this point and Andrew planned a weekend of suprises for me (including a mini golf course and a visit from my parents)
-sounds geeky, but It's me. I get homesick for my parents a lot too! Best wknd ever!

November 10th: Andrew Climbed 58 flights for CF, raising $310 for CF research, bringing our total for the year to $3,416.50

And before I knew it, it was the holidays!

Thanksgiving- we were creative cooking...

And Christmas 2013!

So Happy New Year Everyone! It has been a crazy, but amazing year!

Now, I gotta start cooking our dinner. Andrew gets off tonight after he closes the restaurant, so I will have everything ready for us (including our sparkling -non-alcoholic- bottles, which we bought at IKEA, because we're cool like that).  We actually decided to not drink, because my liver enzymes were elevated a lot this year and found 3 amazing flavors at IKEA.

I hope everyone had a great year and I can't wait to see what 2014 brings! Even if it ends up being another roller coaster, I will love it!


  1. Rock on, Cheriz. I'm going to try to emulate your positive attitude. It's hard for me. Wishing you all the best in 2014.

    1. Thanks! 2013 was a little crazy, but still nice! I'm looking forward to being healthier and being able to do more in 2014! Hope you have a great year too in 2014!
