So Long 2009, Hello 2010!

If I'm being completely honest, I was {very} blessed in 2009.  However, I hope 2010 is far more exciting, life changing and memorable.  Here are some highlights from 2009 and what I hope to accomplish in 2010.

2009 Highlights:
- Celebrated our 3rd year of wedding bliss
- Witnessed several good friends tie the knot
- My sis got engaged (wedding in September 2010!)
- Chaired the St. Jude Give Thanks walk on November 21st and we doubled our goal, raising $61,000 for the hospital!!
- Served on the Friends of St. Jude DC committee and helped plan Blues Ball 2009, which was another success, raising $45,000!!
- Spent many Saturdays w. the hubs and niece which made for some fun memories
- Week in Duck at the beach w. the
- Reintroduced myself to the gym, hoping this trend continues in the new year!
- Got a new job, that I LOVE!

2009 didn't bring me a pooch.  I've been begging the hubs for almost a year now with no luck.  Hopefully this will happen in 2010. 

Wishes for 2010:
- FOSJ committee and another successful Blues Ball
- Turn into a gym rat and get healthy
- Learn how to sew (thanks to my mama I will be one step ahead w. my sewing classes that start on Monday!)
- Be more crafty
- Expand my cooking and baking skills
- More auntie/uncle days w. the niece
- Get back to volunteering at the homeless shelter w. the hubs
- Move.  South.
- Sell our condo and make a profit (even if its only a little)
- Bake cookies (from scratch) that are e.d.i.b.l.e.
- Be a better Christian (attend church more regularly, join a small group, pray more, read more)
- Be at work everyday by 8:30 (I have quite the relationship w. the snooze button!)

And now since I'm really dreaming...
- Run another 1/2 marathon (this time w. the hubs).  Please don't hold me to this, the chances of this happening are beyond slim to none.

We're heading to our favorite ski resort to ring in the new year w. my sister and her fiance for the weekend.  How are you ringing in 2010?!?!

Thank you for reading, your comments and friendships.  I wish y'all a fabulous and blessed 2010!
Happy New Year!
