It's an anticipated year. :)
Some things we're looking forward to this year:
~meeting our new baby (sometime in the next 7-8 weeks)
~getting a 2nd car
~this year Aidan will finish 1st grade and start 2nd grade (gulp!)
~Brennan will start 4yo preschool
~Becoming more "gazelle" in our Total Money Makeover
~Losing all this baby weight and getting my body back
~a trip to Myrtle Beach w/ my side of the family in June
2011 has some hopeful things in store for us. Plus, Patrick has no more school! :)
2010 wasn't so bad for us. We had the typical mixture of good and bad:
-Brennan saw his 1st movie in the theater, The Princess and the Frog
-I got my weight back into the 120's for the first time in years
-I had a fun girls' night out w/ Bethany
-Aidan turned 6, Brennan turned 3, Patrick & I both turned 30
-home improvements: new windows in the entire house, new fridge, new toilet, new shower/bath, finally new furniture, and plumbing work. Over $1300 in plumbing alone...(so did not enjoy that one)
-we welcomed THREE new nieces into this world: Seraphina, Mackenzie, & Cordia
-Brennan finally fully potty trained
-my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary & we partied!
-I had an awesome Girls' Weekend w/ friends from college
-My husband made the boys AWESOME Halloween costumes
So yes, 2010 had some hardships, as every year does. We started the year off sick (sinus infections, bronchitis), and we ended it with some of us sick (ear infections, sinus).
Other things came up, but when we look back, we were blessed.
I am hopeful 2011 will be a blessing, too, for us AND YOU!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
