Happy New Year Everyone! Hope everybody has a wonderful holiday weekend. This year has gotten off to a pretty good start:
-We rang in the New Year with our friends Bryan and Melissa, watching the VA Tech bowl game, eating, drinking and laughing...a LOT
-Friday we visited my brother, sister in law and my two adorable nieces for our belated Christmas celebration. My nieces are still cute as ever and it's amazing how well the 5 year old can cheat at games already...she's just like her father.
-Saturday had a belated Christmas celebration with Kristian's dads side of the family. They even let me enter the all-male Acey Ducey tournament which was a big honor since as far as I know I'm the only female ever to compete. Unfortunately I lost out in the first round to my future husband.
-Sunday, took down the Christmas decorations *sad face*, cleaned the house and made a pretty kick ass Veggie Lasagna together.
Oh and I finished reading Twilight and I'm 250 pages into New Moon. I have to say I'm back on Team Edward....swoon.
As for the New Year I don't really like coming up with resolutions since most of the time they are broken within a month or less however my goals are pretty standard:
-Get in shape (having the wedding in 4 1/2 months is pretty good motivation for this)
-Budget better and save more (again the wedding is basically making this essential)
-Spend more quality time with the boy and away from distractions i.e. TV, Internet etc.
-Stay in better touch with my friends and family...maybe even getting over my aversion to the phone and call them every now and then
-Learn to deal with my anxiety and not let the little things stress me out so much.
The next 4 months are going to be a whirlwind. I'm both nervous and excited but mainly I'm just trying to live in the moment and enjoy the ride.
