How the time flies

WOW! It has been a really, really long time since I last blogged! Not much has happened since my last post in September, that's probably why you haven't heard much from me. Here are the highlights of the past 3 months and what's in store for our future...

We hosted Thanksgiving this year - that was a BLAST! The cooking went smoothly, much in part to my mom being here to help. I was more concerned about hosting 8 more people and making sure everyone was comfortable, etc. Overall it went well, and I've received many compliments, so that's nice!

We FINALLY found leather couches for the living room. It has been a long time coming and I'm sure the living room feels a little left out. We're getting the couch/loveseat today, so I'll have to post pictures later.

We're headed to Cleburne tomorrow, to celebrate Josh's grandma's (G-ma) birthday and x-mas with his mom and sister. Then we're driving to Austin to be with my family for x-mas and a couple days after. Part of me really wanted to host Christmas, mainly so we didn't have to drive I-35, but it will be nice to leave the hosting to my darling mother.

I have a feeling 2010 is going to be a GREAT year! We'll be celebrating 1 year in our gorgeous house, 2 years of wedded bliss, 4-year and 1-year b-days for our precious poochies, Josh is turning 29 and I'll be turning 26. I'm sure our parents are hoping for a baby notice, but I highly doubt that is happening in 2010. (knock on wood)

I finally decided what my New Years Resolution is going to be - running the Cowtown 10k in late February. That will be great training for a vacation bod...because SURPRISE! We've already booked our next vacation. We're headed to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in early March. I can not wait to be on the beach, soaking up the sun without a care in mind - except what we're eating/drinking next.

I just feel so thankful this year - I have a wonderful husband who loves me more than I deserve, my family is amazing. I have friends and coworkers that deserve awards for being so awesome. My dogs are healthy, happy and adorable. We own a gorgeous home that we are continuously making "ours", we have disposable income to eat/shop/travel as we please. Overall, I am eternally grateful for all the blessing and can only thank God for making it all possible. We should all remember what this time of year is all about - celebrating the birth of Jesus, our savior.

God Bless you all this Holiday season and into the New Year. Thank you for being a part of my life and for everything you do.
