I cant believe we are just 9 days from our one year anniversary! This time last year, I was going from one store to another looking for last minute bridal party gifts or looking for goodies to stuff baskets for our out of town guests, and a little Christmas shopping here and there. It was such a hectic week. I told my mom I felt like i had nothing to do this year, after such a a crazy 2007.
We originally planned on attending the Dallas/W hotel rocking NYE, and go big. But after some thought, why spend $400 on our anniversary??? It was more important to just be together and take in the importance of the day. With that said, we have decided to stay home, maybe go to the corner bar around 11 and ring in the new years then come home and relax.
New years day, my parents are hosting a dinner for us and our wedding party and close friends and family. We will probably watch the wedding DVD, eat the top of the wedding cake (hope its still good), and just reflect on what this year has been for us.
As a couple we have decided the 2009 is the year of the baby!!! well baby making!!! wait that's kinda graphic.... oh well you get the point. Ideally, we would like to get pregnant in August or September, so to avoid taking maternity leave. (for those of you who dont know, teachers dont get a traditional maternity leave, we take disability. which means partial pay and up to 3 weeks with out pay :S ) So having the baby during the summer would be more convenient, plus i wouldn't have to leave my students for 2-3 months! So we will keep you posted on that scene. We also have both decided to get healthier. i know that sounds like such a typical resolution, but its very important to us that we are healthy so that we can enjoy life with young children.
Well I hope everyone has a very blessed Christmas and a happy new year!
