Yes, definitely and hopefully that will get you back on track.
got the ROM flashed. made it to home screen. went in and downloaded/installed the clockworkrecovery mod, then restarted phone. Now just to figure out how to get my contacts/apps back... not sure how to sign in
Hit enter too quick. You probably just need to flash the GAPPS package which most roms require. So if that's the case then just boot back into recovery to install it and you should be. Good to go.

At the point you are now you should be able to boot into recovery now and just flash the GAPPS file, reboot, and sign in.
The normal steps to follow when flashing are as follow:
1) Boot into recovery
2) Perform your wipes
3) Flash ROM file
4) Flash GAPPS file
5) Reboot into Android
Thanks for everythin! I'm gonna give it a go here in a few... I had restored back to an old file that is just some ICS before I did anything since I wasn't getting service on the aokp at the time. Will update in a bit
