Here's to new Beginnings, and a New year ahead of me and my family!!
2008 was a great year I will admit - We welcomed our Son into this world and it made us two a Family.. I will forever cherish 2008 for that reason. Other than that 2008 was a tough year, economically, physcically, and emotionally not just for me but for so many. I mean seriously 2008 will be looked back on as the wierdest year ever!! Gas was above 4 dollars a gallon and shoot diesel was almost 5 bucks a gallon!! RIDICULOUS. Now gas is the lowest its been in 5 years ranging from $1.53 - $1.43. A black man was voted President and a woman was running for President as well. Stocks fell 700 points in one day, the lowest its fallen since the attack on th U.S. in 2001.
2009 I hope, be the beginning of things looking up and the come back of economy although many say that will take at least until 2010, but I can Hope, Right?! Thats all I have right now is hope and that what I'm stickin to.. I have some good things going on in 2009 that I am looking forward to..
I will be getting married FINALLY after 3 years of being engaged and having our baby, it's time for John to sign his life away tooo ME!! hahah I'm just kidding. It seems like it has taken forever to get to this point but now I'm wishing I had some more time to be prepared!! Not happening - I have less than 3 months until I walk down the aisle. I'm hoping that I can go back to school this year to go after my dream of being a RN in Labor & Delivery, this has always been what I wanted to do with my life but fell off course and I have nobody to blame but myself. So its going to be a little harder this time around trying to get my ass back in gear to get to school, with having a baby and adult responsiblities on my plate. I'm sure I can do it and I know John will support me. :0)
John and I are also hoping to take a few trips this year with just the 3 of us and also just the two of us. We are hoping to go to Colorado 2 times this year, a trip to Cali, and possibly plan a trip for a cruise. We will see though, We have a lot going on at home so it should be interesting.
I have some New Year's Resolutions:
*Lose about 25lbs 15 of that needs to be before my Wedding. Since I have already lost a total 53lbs including the baby weight I gained!! Go ME!!
* Go back to school
*Not complain so much, (I've been pretty negative lately)
* I want to run the 2010 PF changs marathon 1/2 is my goal but the full would be awesome!
*Plan the best 1st B-day party ever for Tristan!!
Man.. I had a lot more than this and now I can't think. I'm super tired so I will get back to this
**I was supposed to post pics of T on Christmas day etc.. I forgot, well I have some (well Alot of new pics) so here are some for viewing pleasure.. Man, He is just so cute and of course this is my biased opinion because he is my Son but I just love him so much I could squeeze his little cheeks and cuddle with him ALL DAY!! :0)
