Peace Out 2010!

So long 2010, Welcome 2011!!

Geez Louise!!  I really can not believe that 2010 is almost over and we will be starting 2011.  I still feel like I'm trying to plan for last years Halloween and Christmas festivities at work...I just really have no idea where the time went. 
2010 has been a great year, sure it had some ups and downs...but another year of being completely blessed by family and just can't go wrong with that.  Other friends have done a Recap/Year in Review and it sounds like fun...I guess it's kinda like those long Christmas Letters you get with Christmas Cards, only blogged about.  I just decided to do this just tonight, so I will probably forget so many things...but oh well!

So here's my 2010 Year in Review

Rang in the New Year in Dallas with friends from college

Even though it was a lose, got to go to the Cotton Bowl to see the OSU Cowboys play Mississippi

It was awesome to see the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium while we were there!

Mike tricked me into getting HBO, free for 3 months...guess what we still have it and I threaten to cancel it, but I really like it too much!

What will 2011 bring us?  Who knows, I guess the Good Lord does.  I am excited to see what He has in store for Mike and I in the new year.  Some things that may be on the list is going to LOTS of weddings, maybe a trip to Alaska to see Julie and Luke, getting the office in order so it actually looks like an office, Mike and I are starting P90X (anyone that's done it, we'd love some pointers), hopefully some more baby talk, maybe another puppy in the near future if there's no babies, I'll be 30, trying some new recipes, eating healthier, trying some new resturants, more photography, travel-maybe far maybe near...
So long 2010, it's been great.  Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year celebration!  Welcome 2011!!

Sounds like you had THE BEST of years in 2010!! Last year we did Power90 instead of P90X. Have you started it yet? We went with Power90 which is a more beginner level of workouts; we didn't want to burn out and get frustrated with something we weren't totally ready for. We loved Power90! If you've started P90X, best of luck!!

I want to go to Alaska!! Our friends lived there for 3 years and just NOW moved down to New Mexico. He loves it there and says that they'll eventually move back... and we'll soon follow for a visit. It just looks sooo beautiful-- and think of all the fun pictures you can take! ;-)
