Happy New Year Everyone!
I was just thinking the other day "I wonder what this year will have in store for my husband and I"???!! I'm really excited about the possibilities. We finally got our first home at the end of last year and I'm loving it! Finally our own little haven! It's truly a great feeling! This year I'm definitely hoping for a baby. Hoping to get my procedure done as soon as I can. I'm hoping before my birthday so we can have a spring baby but if money allows it to happen early then so be it b/c I'm wayyyy behind since we want more than one! We are going to have to budget our butts off for this one since we decided to get our house first! Besides that I'm just going to continue the same principles I did last year which were the following:
*Love my husband inside and out and continue to keep our relationship strong
I was able to accomplish all that last year and it worked out well! We ended up getting the house with our savings instead of the baby so this year HAS to be the BABY YEAR!
I'm also adding a couple more things to round it out:
*Read more ( I always LOVED books but got too busy in life and forgot about that joy)
*Paint more (I haven't painted in a while and I need to get back to that)
Xmas-was good. We drove all around in the days leading up to Xmas- we always go see his family whose all split up so we have Xmas Eve Eve and Xmas Eve there and then drive back Xmas morning to be with my fam. We logged about 700 miles and WE ARE NOT doing that for a few years. I'll be celebrating in my own home starting next Xmas with our own traditions and I'm super excited!
Tommy and I celebrated our Xmas on New Years Eve with a gift exchange just between us. It was modest due to purchasing a new home right b/f Thanksgiving but it was beautiful. We exchange a few gifts that morning and then gave each little gifts through-out the day. A lot of books for us to read and some books that we will read together. It was really nice!
I'm very glad the holidays are over! I love them but GEE-ZUS it's so complicated! ha ha
We also had a New Years Eve gathering at our home. A game night with a few friends and family. I cooked dinner and we stayed up to 6:00am playing games, listening to music and eating! We had a blast! Tommy's favorite holiday is NYE so I try to something no matter how small. It was about 10 of us and we had a great time together! Small and intimate just like we like it!
Well I hope everyone had wonderful holiday season and let's make 2011 the best year yet!!
